We stayed here one night and it met all our needs. Clean and in a safe area. Really easy to check in and out. It accomodated four of us nicely. Thanks Shelly!
We just returned from our trip to Seattle where we spent two nights in the Seattle Condo.
The area is great and somewhat upscale with great architecture on the nearby houses. The condo is close to numerous restaurants, pubs, a grocery store and some shops, all about three blocks away.
The condo itself is in an older, but well maintained complex and provided a great home-base for a couple of days. The apartment was clean and in good repair with plenty of nice touches that you won't get at a regular hotel (projector, full size fridge). The bed was comfy and the couch converts into another sleeping area with bedding provided.
As others have mentioned, parking during the day is no problem, but you might have to park a block or two away if you arrive later in the evening. Either way, the furthest away we had to park was about 2.5 blocks and we didn't get back until 10:00 PM.
The area seems quite safe and secure (as mentioned, it's an upscale neighborhood) and walking the neighborhood was not a worry at any time of the day. It is less than two minutes to the water and makes for a great view in the morning.
With a rental car, we could make to Seattle Center in about 20 minutes and Pioneer Square in about the same. You can get to the I5 in about 10 minutes.
We didn't meet our host in person, but Shelly left a detailed, type-written note with all of the information we needed about the condo, the area and our stay, We had a contact number if needed and it was specifically stated that we could call, even if it was two in the morning with any problem at all.
I expect the next time we're in Seattle, we'll be trying to book with Shelly again as this property kept us close to the heart of Seattle, but far enough away to be able to relax away from the hustle and bustle.
My family and I had a great stay at Shelly's place. Her home is clean and comfortable and she even welcomed us with cookies! She allowed us to check in early which was very helpful since my husband and I were traveling with our two small children. Just outside the building is a lovely water view. I would stay at Shelly's again.
This was a fantastic location from which to explore Seattle. We loved the area of Madison Park too with it's quaint coffee shops and beautiful walks near the water. The apartment was clean and comfortable and it was nice to have our own kitchen. Shelly was available 24 hrs to help which was a lovely additional perk and everything was exactly as promised. We would certainly stay again!
Shelly was great. I guess she likes technologies because she always reply to your question before you finished writing it! I mean she's really forthcoming.
The apartment is very nice, instructions left by Shelly were pretty relevant and everything you'll need is there. Quiet area, grocery store / supermarket 10 mins walking, the bus is 3 mins walking and brings you to downtown in +/- 25 mins. I enjoy my stay.
However, you can hear pretty well the neighbours (soundproofing not really good) And there's no table and chairs in the kitchen?
This Apt is in awesome location where you can see seattle's awesome view.. it was beautiful and the best thing that I loved about the house was 'the projector'. I could watch good movies using the projector, and it made my day. good stay!
Upon return from European travel, we had a delightful reunion with family. Shelly generously arranged for easy access that accommodated our flight schedule. The apartment was clean, bright and cheery with excellent location on Lake Washington and within easy walking to Madison Beach center and park. Our travel photos were screened onto the wall using Shelly's projector...Thanks.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Shelly's apartment! We were in Seattle for a family wedding, and her place was convenient and located in a beautiful neighborhood full of fun, interesting venues. It is very near the (email hidden)e view from the kitchen window is lovely, but walking down to the water is even lovelier. It's so close! The apartment has lots of windows so it was very light. It is on the first floor of the multi-building complex, and although the parking is limited during certain hours of the day, you can find off-street parking close by and the walk was nice! There were four of us. Our adult daughters moved right into the living room and slept comfortably on the large pull-out sectional. My husband and I were very comfortable in the bedroom. The shower was great and Shelly provided ample towels and a new bar of Dove soap. She also left an iron for us to use when I requested one.The kitchen had everything we needed. We were in and out a lot at wedding events, but we did keep drinks and snacks in the fridge and we used the microwave. There were ample electrical outlets for our gadgets, and although we didn't have time to enjoy the TV and projector, we would gladly return to try them another time. Shelly was a great host and very helpful! We highly recommend a stay at her "home." It's well worth it!
We had a wonderful time here. It was in a perfect location and the space was welcoming and the perfect size for us (two adults and one small child). With views of the lake, a nice outdoor area (common space) with grass and a patio overlooking the lake, beautiful grounds with parking, easy access to parks/playgrounds, and a fabulous projector to watch movies/hulu on...we were extremely content. The bed was super comfortable and the couch easy to make into another sleeping space for our little boy (but it could easily fit one, maybe two, adults). The kitchen was equipped but the complex is also surrounded by a ton of cute places to grab a bite. It was a great find and we would definitely stay here again.
great stay and very close to the lakefront. great communication. keyless entry convenience. washer / dryer located in the building next door. easy parking in the neighborhood. bring own hairdryer ;-)
An excellent guest!
Shelly was a really good guest, respectful and quiet. The place was super clean when she left! And I had gift and flowers waiting for me on the table :)
My only regret is that we didn't find the way to meet and talk around a coffee. She seems to be a really interesting person, but really busy as I am :)
I'll be happy to host her again and would definitely recommand her as a guest!
Shelly and friend have been TOP guests. Accurate, friendly and very respectful to the place ( left in a very clean state). I would be pleased to have them again and I would definitely recommand
Shelly et son petit copain ont quitté l'appartement en laissant tout dans un excellent état et super propre, j'espere les revoir, c'était un plaisir ;
Shelly and her friend are very nice and quiet, they left the apartment very clean. good person.
Shelly is an amazing friend. She is definitively a super geek, when I went with her to California, she brought two computers with her. You will never see her without her laptop. I have stayed at her condo on 3 separate occasions. It is right by the water, when you step outside the condo, the beach is literally right there. I recommend her because she is a strikingly honest person. She will tell it to you straight rather you want to hear it or not.
