Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Nice place to stay. Joyce is wonderful and helpful.

    September 2012
  • My son and I had a perfect stay at this apartment. Joyce is a wonderful caring host and had everything we needed for a late arrival.. Milk and coffee were in the refrigerator for the morning. The location is excellent. It is walking distance to several great neighborhood coffee shops and to 45th street where everything is happening. It is a great neighborhood for walking and you feel very safe.

  • We stayed in the down home for one hot week in Seattle with 4 people. Joyce gave us sightseeing tips on the day of arrival. The house is complete, nice furniture in style. During our stay, Joyce gave us fresh fruit from the garden and was there in case of questions.
    We enjoyed our time in Seattle and if we have new plans to visit Seattle we look forward to stay again in the Down Home.

  • Joyce was an amazing host from the get go. She's very keen on providing you with answers to all the questions you may have on Seattle. Her house is centrally located and stocked with all the amenities and comforts one could dream of (hot tub included). She has a natural way of making you feel welcome and at home, and will even bring you eggs and muffins in the morning. We couldn't have been happier with our stay!

  • Great location. Walllingford is close to downtown, the Burke-Gilman trail, lots of shops, etc.

    September 2011
  • The minute we step foot down the stairs of the Urban Cottage, we felt right at home. Cozy, nicely decorated with all the amenities one can ask for. Nice to look out the windows from the "living room" to see greenery. Urban Cottage was comfortable for the 3 of us--we were on the move, and there was room for one more! We loved the the neighborhood and the surroundings and enjoyed the easy walk down to the park. Whenever we left the cottage to go into town, we were always happy to come back and feel at home and enjoy the peacefulness. We thank you Joyce for your warm hospitality!

    June 2011
  • We enjoyed an long week stay at Joyce's place. It is a quiet location central to great shopping, bus lines and wonderful restaurants. It is easy to catch a bus downtown and to other locations in Seattle. Everything was as it is described in her description. The bed was very comfortable, the kitchen is well equipped and the living room is spacious. There is also Internet and satellite TV. We were not disappointed and would do it again.

    October 2013
  • Joyce was a great host and more than accommodating to our group. The welcoming wine and bread were a very special touch after our long drive. We appreciated the hospitality. Thank you for allowing us to use your home during our trip. - the Canadian Crew.

  • My husband, son and I really enjoyed our time in the downstairs apartment in Wallingford. Joyce has made the apartment welcoming, comfortable and created a lovely homely atmosphere with character of a country cottage. The beds are really comfortable and the place is quiet at night - I had some of my best sleeps here during my 1 month long USA trip. Her place is set in a beautiful garden and tree lined street and yet, up the road there are an array of great shops, restaurants, galleries, parks and the Fremont Troll. I loved staying in the Wallingford / Fremont area plus the bus is 2 minute walk and a 15 minute ride downtown to the major attractions of Seattle.

    Joyce is also a helpful and fantastic host and she will give you lots of tips of things to see and places to eat and shop plus maps! We highly recommend!

    September 2013
  • My girlfriends and I had a wonderful stay in Joyce's home. We had the main house and this down stairs apartment. Everyone enjoyed the lovely garden, neighborhood and of course the classic turn of the
    century home.
    Joyce was helpful and welcoming. She made us feel right at home.
