The second bunk is four feet off the ground so if you have trouble climbing you might wanna consider sleeping below lol !

What else more could I have needed?my stay felt so relaxing. Quiet, pretty. The other little wagon next door was rented, but I wouldn't have known if I wasn't told. Both a fan and a heater and electricity there, and even WiFi. Whole Foods a short walk away, as is a bus stop to go downtown. Loved looking at Jean Mark's garden too.
What a great place - the Gypsy Wagon is awesome! Everything as described. Good location to get downtown or to Ballard/Fremont. Jean-Marc was a very accommodating host.
My boyfriend and I landed in Seattle from Europe where we had planned to stay at Jean Marc s gypsy wagon but unfortunately when we landed I was feeling feverish and unwell so we prefered to stay at some friends house. Jean Marc was however very nice double checking on us and giving us suggestions on places to visit in the area!
The Gypsy Wagon was awesome, especially during the summer. The location is really close to the W Wheeler street bus stop so you can go pretty much anywhere you need to go via public transportation. When you're in the wagon, you can also look at J's Garden, rabbits, and chickens. It's a pretty cool sight to see!
This wagon was so cool to stay in! The top bunk was the best place to sleep because the cool breeze would blow in from the window and we could hear the soothing sounds of the city at night (which I LOVED). The wagon was perfect for us because we explored the city all day and just came back to sleep. Even though the weather was hot during the day, the wagon was nice and cool at night and we had a fan in case we needed some extra air flow. I recommend taking the hosts advice and showering at night to avoid the morning bathroom traffic. We found a breakfast joint nearby that we loved called Tenth West, just a ten minute walk away and so delicious! I recommend the breakfast sandwich.
Marc's Gypsy Wagon is super cute. It was a lot of fun staying there and inspired me to build one myself!
I can highly recommend the Gypsy Wagon.
The Gypsy Wagon was a great experience!! The small cabin feel was cozy and very private. The wagon was very clean and exceeded my expectation. Next time we're in Seattle we'll be staying in the wagon. It's very conveniently close to pikes place and great tourist sites.
