Great House! Less than a two-block walk to the beach and restaurants. Kitchen is fully equipped. Would recommend to friends staying in the area.
We had a booking fall through day-of on Christmas Eve and Sue was able to get the place ready for us very quickly! She's very responsive.
We had a wonderful stay in Sue and family's lovely home. The house is set up perfectly for those traveling with young kids! We enjoyed exploring the neighborhood and loved the relaxed beach vibe. It was easy getting into the city center area, and nice to come home to the quiet neighborhood at the end of a long day sightseeing.
The townhouse is a sweet and tidy home just over a block from Alki beach. The neighborhood is full of kids and very friendly local residents. The kitchen is highly functional, and the entire home was neat and clean and very well organized. We were there three nights over a long weekend and it suited us perfectly.
Dear Sue, Thank you for being such a wonderful host. You were very honest, warm and responsive to our enquiries and your written instructions were clear and helpful. When we entered your house, the first impression we had were the coziness, comfort and warmth. We felt at home right away. Everything looks new, clean and lovingly kept. The ground floor bedroom and sheets were nice & clean. We moved up the stairs and the carpet felt nice, thick and warm under our feet. As we came to the second floor, we were blown away by the beautiful sights we saw. To our left was the kitchen. It was simply beautiful. We can see the counter, the oven, the stove, the fridge and utensils were all carefully & lovingly selected and they were not cheap and of good qualities. We saw the spices and herbs in the cabinets and these just told us of the pride and joy you had in preparing meals for your family. To our right was the dining room. The table was long and perfect for a family of 6 or just simply to entertain friends. We spent most of our evening sitting around the dining table, chatting and enjoying our quality family time. Moving further in, the living room was lovely and cosy with a sofa and TV. As we moved to the third floor, we saw two bedrooms. As was the case with the ground floor bedroom, they were nice and comfortable with clean sheets. The bonus was the baby cot, the safety gate on the stairs and the safety latch on the drawers. They were perfect for family with little ones and in our case, my two year old niece. The bathroom was neat and clean with extra towels provided. It was great that we were able to use the washer and dryer. Outside of the house, the garden was lovely with wooden deck chairs that were just inviting us to sit down and enjoy the summer sun, which I happily did. Your location was fantastic as well with Alki Beach a block away with all the restaurants, cafés and of course the beach. You asked us what areas we thought needed improvement. The only slight improvements we would like to suggest were the house number at your gate and a front pouch light with sensor. The gate did not state your house number. Instead, it stated your neighbor’s. It was confusing and we were in real fear of trying to enter the wrong house and getting shot in the process. This was compounded by the fact that our flights arrived late in the evening and it was dark and quiet by the time we reached your house. The front pouch light with sensor will help in opening the front doors. We had to use our handphone light to see where to open the door as it was really dark. Overall, your house conveyed a sense of peace, warmth and tranquility. I couldn’t think...
We stayed at Sue, Joe and Brody's lovely house and it was a wonderful experience. The home fit our needs perfectly since we were traveling with my two year old son and our friends and their two slightly older boys. It was extremely baby/kid friendly which was important for us. The house was clean and well-maintained. The neighborhood was cute and quaint and the house was only blocks from the beach. Sue was very prompt about getting back to me which I appreciated. Overall this was a wonderful house and we're glad we found it. I would recommend this for anyone looking for a place to stay in Seattle!
