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.
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!
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
Joyce was helpful and welcoming. She made us feel right at home.
NIce place. Great location. Easy walking to restaurants and coffee and Gas Works Park on the lake. Quick and easy trips to the city.
Our stay was not the usual Airbnb experience, nor it seems a usual stay with Joyce. The bed squeaked horribly, the hot tub was not on during our stay, the coffee pot was not functioning, there were quite a few cob webs about, the bed was not a tempurpedic as advertised and had mildew under it on the plywood base, we had a squirrel chewing in the wall every night and our host changed her "house rules" 1/2 way through our stay to add on $75 more for a pet fee and state that the hot tub was normally off during the winter months AFTER we sited our grievances. Thankfully Airbnb takes a "snap shot" of the listing when you book so we were not charged. The ONLY house rule when we booked was "n.s."...that's it. We sent photos to airbnb and described the situation. Airbnb refunded about 1/3 of our stay, our host gave us $40 in cash & champagne but we don't drink. We would not stay there again. P.S. Watch your step on the way in..very steep and dangerous, not for someone with any kind of mobility issue.
I am sorry that Teresa seems to have been an unhappy guest. When she originally got in touch, she was looking at the cottage, she switched spaces and registered via instant book, my first booking this way and I didn't have my usual review of policies.Tho I usually rent monthly in winter, and turn off the hot tub, this year had a sudden vacancy which Teresa grabbed via instant. book. When I discovered my error ,tho I offered Teresa money and located a spa w/in a mile. She declined, but I made a token effort to acknowledge the miscommunication. tho Teresa charges pet fees when she hosts, she seemed surprised, inspire of that, even tho I halved it, and waived it. AS Teresa was disturbed by 2 cobwebs, and found some mildew on a bed skirt, (gone)I voluntarily waived the cleaning fee (and swear not to put cedar boughs in the apartment next christmas!! ) Squirrels and cobwebs were never mentioned, but Teresa did tell me that one of the 3 coffee pots seemed to have the wrong carafe and I replaced it the next day. As to squirrels, My dog, The dog of the guest following .nor the current tenant or I were able to discover anything. I do wish I could havemade Teresa's stay more fabulous
Nice place to stay. Joyce is wonderful and helpful.
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!
