I sort of stumbled onto this one bedroom/one bathroom condo and airbnb in general, but the serendipity was a complete win. Location can't be beat for us, only a couple of blocks from a favorite bakery, favorite restaurant, and favorite walk along the water. Latika's place is comfortable and cozy; we give particular nods to the cleanliness and order of the living room, and to the fact that this felt like home. Latika was exceedingly clear and quick with communications, and that made our inaugural airbnb experience very easy. Most enjoyable weekend!
Response from Latika:
My favorite review. So glad your first experience went so smoothly! Welcome, Airbnb is awesome :)
Latika is a fantastic host. My girlfriend and I needed a place to stay while orchestrating a move from San Francisco to Seattle. After discussing our situation with Latika, we agreed on an amount for a 10 day stay - the longest I've ever done in an AirBnB.
The whole thing went phenomenally well. Latika was actually going to be in San Francisco the week before we left, so we agreed to meet so that I could collect the keys to her place.
After arriving in Seattle, things just got better from there. Latika's place is spacious and home-y. It reminded both Kris (my girlfriend) and I of a college dorm of sorts. Really, there's not much else to tell other than it had every creature comfort we could have hoped for: wireless, a washer/dryer, a comfy bed, a gym... really, it's a fantastic space. The only caveat is that we arrived on Seattle's hottest weekend to date (temps in the 90s) and there's no air conditioning. So, no one's fault per se, but not super comfortable!
In any case, I'd most certainly recommend Latika's place to anyone visiting - or looking to move to - Seattle. It's just such a lovely environment and Latika is a great host. You can't go wrong. It's easily the best AirBnB I've stayed at so far.
I had a great experience staying at Latika's apartment in Belltown. It was the perfect neighborhood - safe, convenient parking, centrally located by great bars & restaurants while at the same time very quiet. The apartment itself was big, clean, comfortable - everything I could have asked for and more. I would highly recommend staying there.
This place is close to Denny Way St (where my friends live) and also close to Pike Place Market (15 mins by walk) that why I book it. Latika, a friendly person let me a clean apartment with a big living room.
It's a good choise to be close to Space Needle and Pike Place Market.
French comment :
Je suis venu à Seattle quelques jours pour passer le bonjour à des amis. J'ai trouvé cet appartement bien placé, à la fois proche de mes amis (du côté du Space Needle) et du Pike Place Market (le fameux marché de Seattle).
Latika and her lovely boy friend were easy and pleasant guests. We rarely saw them between all over busy schedules. We welcome them back as guests any time.
A very nice experience hosting such pleasant, , quiet and compliant party.
actually, one word describes this most welcome family, "dream guests"
Latika was very courteous and professional while we discussed details about the apartment and such. She and her friends left the apartment in very good order. You will not feel sorry for having her as a tenant. I recommend her 100%.
