I'm a lifetime Seattlite. I love hiking, Seahawks football and the latest gadgets.
Jim and Molly's "mother-in-law" style apartment was everything I needed and more, and at a great price. I stayed for almost two weeks after I moved to Seattle and looked for a apartment. Although they lived upstairs, I felt like I had a very private space and didn't feel as if I was intruding. However, they were very receptive and responsive to any of my needs.
It is easy to have a car, as there is parking all over, there's a separate entry to the apartment, and a lock box for easy check in and check out. The kitchen was fully functional, the bed was comfortable, and the bathroom was clean. They also had a nice tv with cable, tons of dvds, and a Roku to watch netflix on. It was a perfect place to stay and in a prime location. I would recommend it to anyone visiting Seattle.
Overall the apartment was nice.
Pros: comfy bed, parking space, safe neighborhood, close to downtown and buses, great price, comfy couch and great DVD selection and Roku.
Cons: It's a basement, the water in the bathroom condenses when showering so there is water dripping from the ceiling everywhere - on the toilet, floor, and on you while getting ready in front of the mirror. Also, a few nights the people upstairs decided to do laundry or run the dishwasher in the middle of the night which was very loud and prevented us from sleeping. There was only two miniature coffee cups available, we had to purchase our own regular size for our stay.
Overall, it was a nice stay but if we are in the area again we probably won't stay there again.
Jim and Molly were very accommodating. Great location and close to downtown. We were very busy with a family wedding so we didn't get any time to converse with them but it was the holiday season and i am sure they were busy too. I would definitely stay there again.
Jim & Molly's Mother-in-Law apartment was perfect! Very cozy, clean and had everything we needed for our stay. I would recommend staying here to anyone!
Stayed here to look for places to live as I am relocating to Seattle. Portage Bay is beautiful and is a great location with easy access to everywhere Seattle has to offer! Never met Jim and Molly personally, but heard them walking around the house above. They were very accommodating and had everything you could possibly need from cookware to multiple DVDs, wifi, and ROKU! Had a wonderful stay- thank you!
Wonderful location - we have stayed at Jim and Molly's several times in the past 2 years. It's always clean; internet connection always good; bed great.
The reservation was canceled 4 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Very nice place to stay, clean and quiet.
Jim&Molly are very flexible around check-in/out times since they have a lock box.
I would highly recommend this place to my friends!
I enjoyed my stay here quite a bit! The apartment is exactly as advertised and in a very convenient location. It's also a gorgeous, quiet, and relatively safe neighborhood.
The lockbox on the door made check-in and check-out very easy. I really appreciated this since I arrived pretty late and left very early.
The thing I tend to have the hardest time finding when traveling is a good internet connection. Jim & Molly's internet that they offer guests is excellent! It worked 100% of the time and was fast enough to watch Netflix.
We loved Jim & Molly's place and its location. The neighborhood is great for walking and has almost a serene feel to it. There are restaurants/cafes and a small market within walking distance, and Fairview Park on Eastlake (near their place) is a pleasant walk by the shore. We would stay there again.
