I spent a week at this Airbnb this summer and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. There was such a sense of peace in this place, both in the home and the about the hostess. I have never stayed in a floating home before and I loved being right on the water. Literally. Watching the sunrise and sunset and the sailboats passing was beautiful. I slept so well with the peacefulness and gently movement from the water. It was truly the retreat of rest I was seeking. I went home completely refreshed. The home was very clean and just as described in the listing, I was very comfortable. I really enjoyed the neighborhoods and all they had to offer, so much was within walking distance or a quick Uberx ride. The hostess was delightful and respectful and I am so grateful for my time there. I am looking forward to visiting again!
Es war eine wunderbare Erfahrung in Maggies schickem und gemütlichen "Floating Home" zu wohnen. Das Haus schwimmt und schaukelt leicht auf den Wellen, wenn ein Boot vorüber fährt. Auf der Terasse am Wasser zu sitzen gibt einem das perfekte Urlaubsgefühl - mitten in der Stadt. Die Fotos werden von der Realität übertroffen und Maggie ist eine vollendete, immer freundliche Gastgeberin.

We were not actually looking for a floating home to stay in, but Maggie's place is very convenient (within walking distance) of some of U of W medical facilities so it came up as #1 in our search. The idea of being closer to nature while in the big city was appealing. The rowing teams glided by early each morning rain or mist or shine. Maggie is a gracious host who shared her experiences on a floating home through the seasons and gave us tips for local eateries. The neighborhood is quiet and respectful with a french bakery and other restaurants nearby. Even though parking is a few blocks away, we had no trouble finding a spot and the neighborhood felt safe. After living in the northwest 15 years, we finally felt like we truly got to experience a fine slice of Seattle.
Maggie's home was an absolute find for my stay in Seattle and I would love to return some day. My month on the water felt incredibly restorative, almost like a retreat, and Maggie is a gracious, thoughtful and welcoming host.
The bedroom is comfortable and roomy and the bathroom charming, as is the whole houseboat. There is nothing to match the views of the water at all hours of day and night, rain or shine, with its passing boats and waterfowl.
I liked the fact that you can sometimes hear the hum of traffic from University Bridge, as this juxtaposition of tranquil water and busy urban highways is so typical of the city. It's only ten minutes' walk over the bridge into the University district from here, where you can find great museums and tap into a bus network going all over Seattle; plus you can get a bus from right by Maggie's to Capitol Hill.
There are some lovely cafes within walking distance and a nearby rowing club from which scullers take to the water at 6am. Meantime, the community of houseboats in Maggie's bay is a delight in itself - what a privilege to be able to experience being part of this.
Thank you, Maggie, for an unforgettable time on your floating home! This time I really fell in love with Seattle.
Maggie is a great hostess who made us feel welcome in her home during the holidays. Such a magnificent property, it was exactly the Seattle Houseboat Experience we were looking for!
The title says it all. It is a great experience to live in Seattle on one of these floating houses. Margaret was a very nice and caring host. If I was short on anything, she was always glad to help me out.
Maggie's house is a wonderful place. It's hard not to forget for a moment that the house is in the middle of Seattle if you're sitting in the living room, watching the rowers and birds on the water. Maggie is a wonderful host. I can only recommend Maggie's place to everyone.
This is a great place to stay! The owner is really pleasant and the house is charming. The location is really great for being near the UW campus and Eastlake bus line downtown. The view from the dock is a lot of fun--toward campus and a lot of boat traffic, rowing, and the drawbridge. Really good French bakery nearby for breakfast. Hope I can stay here again.
Maggie's houseboat was a fantastic experience! The views were great and the place was well looked after. Thanks Maggie!
Maggie was a lovely guest and we really enjoyed hosting her. She is a very eloquent woman - a real intellect and we quite a few shared interests of music and IP law! When I come to Seattle, I would love to stay with Maggie as I'm sure she is just a good a host as a guest! You will be welcome in our home anytime.
Margaret and her partner were such a delight. Five star guests, very responsible, clean and friendly. They are welcome back anytime. I recommend them for future hosts.
Margaret Est une dame souriante et discrète, Contente de l'avoir accueilli!
