Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We stayed in Justin's beautiful house during a recent conference in Seattle. The house is a really nice combination of modern conveniences and luxuries - streaming music system, heated floors, beautiful modern showers and three full bathrooms, and also the warmth of a simple and modern design aesthetic. Justin was a very thoughtful host and gave detailed instructions to us and checked in to make sure all was well with our stay. He even left us a bottle of wine and chocolate to welcome us! I'd definitely stay there again and recommend his home to others looking for a place to stay in Seattle!

  • Justin's townhouse is a very nice place to stay in Seattle. It is in a quiet, residential part of one of the city's best neighborhoods, Capitol Hill, and is comfortable, spacious and modern. The home has lots of little touches that make it feel luxurious, such as heated floors in the bathroom and a Sonos sound system. On account of jet lag, my husband and I were also fortunate enough to catch some beautiful Seattle sunrises looking out across Lake Washington from the master bedroom. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

  • The house was amazing! Very well maintained and so much room. Also, everything you could possibly need in way of home living. The views around his home are spectacular and location is situated between some lovely neighborhoods loaded with shops and cafes.

    Great place to stay!

  • Justin's place was wonderful. Comfortable peaceful relaxing. Loved hanging on the balcony and patio. Neighborhood was wonderful. There's a friendly neighborhood coffee shop two blocks away and volunteer park just down the street was wonderful. Street parking was always available. Justin was easy to communicate with. Would return and highly recommend!

  • Justin's place is beautiful and was perfect for our situation. Tastefully furnished and very close to a wonderful cafe, a co-worker and I stayed here and were joined during the day by another couple of co-workers. There was plenty of room for us to work comfortably (software design/development) while sipping coffee and listening to music on the Sonos.

  • 5 friends and I had the BEST WEEKEND EVER, and I can fairly contribute most of that to the luxurious accommodations of Justin's modern mountain view townhome.

    The house overall is beautifully furnished and roomy. It can be exhausting to spend a weekend with a group, but there are lots of places to get away, just in the house. You also have your choice of garden patio or upper veranda to take in mountain views.

    Other plusses: comfy beds, lots of natural light, plant life and cool stuff on the walls.

    The world outside is a calm, pretty neighborhood. Highly recommend the cafe nearby (check (website hidden) maps). Cabs were only about $10 everywhere we went.

    Highly recommend!

    Response from Justin:

    thanks for the kind words Alanna! glad you had an awesome experience at my place :)

  • Justin's place is perfect if you love style, simplicity and great location.

    We had 1 hiccup getting into the place and Justin apologized, refunded accordingly and even bought me an appropriate gift.

    I wish we were friends so I can crash in his guest room for free :)

    Definitely recommend this place.

    July 2013
  • We greatly enjoyed our stay - the house is spacious, attractive, and comfortable and located in a beautiful residential area. We would definitely stay there again.

I am low key but love to stay active, healthy, and driven to do good things for the world. I am a physician. I work at a large hospital in the city. I volunteer at a student-run homeless clinic. I do community health and clean energy non-profit work in Latin America. I live in Seattle because I love the outdoors - camping, skiing, hiking, climbing, etc. The farmer's markets here are amazing. I am totally jazzed to have a garden on my back patio. Some of my favorite music is Youth Lagoon, Beach House, Neil Young, and David Bowie. I subscribe to the New Yorker and National Geographic. I watch John Stewart (surprise!). My favorite foods are garlic and mushrooms (which I enjoy foraging in the mountains). Perhaps this is TMI so I'll stop here :)
