We have stayed with Laura before and were glad to be back. She had explained there were home repairs going on but she still provided a comfortable bedroom and shower facilities and offered to respond to anything else we needed. She has a cozy and attractive home, reflecting her culture and personality, both of which are pleasant and vibrant. Thank you, Laura!
The room and the home were adequate for my needs as I was out of the house early and came home late. Unfortunately I did not get to meet Laura and I would have liked to do this. A couple of things surprised me. I was expecting to be able to make a quick breakfast of cereal and milk with some fruit. A cup of tea. That sort of thing, but there was only a half loaf of white bread out on a table and some apples and a couple of bananas. Couldn't find any cereal or milk and generally felt there should have been some instructions regarding breakfast. I was only mildly inconvenienced here since I went to the place where I was gathering for the Cascadia Poetry Festival and had a cereal breakfast and tea there.
One other unfortunate incident which could not be helped was the fact that the communal bathroom shower had leaked into the kitchen and as a result was not usable. I used the other ensuite shower in another room by invitation on one day, however on days when I had to leave early, I did not have a shower because no one else was awake. I did have a shower on the day I was leaving as the communal shower was repaired. But there were three mornings I had to go without a shower.

My stay in Seattle was to see an old friend. The location to him was perfect, just around the corner.
The house was clean and tidy and the room had all I needed, especially a very comfortable bed.
There was a little trouble with the plumbing in the shower but Laura was on to it as soon as it happened and there was another shower to use, so I wasn't put out at all.
I loved Seattle and wouldn't hesitate to stay their again if my friend was in the same neighborhood, Thanks Lynn, Australia
This was my first airbnb experience and it was great! Laura was very accommodating and the room was very clean. The house is great! It is the perfect room and the location is in my opinion the most ideal. Thanks Laura!
I had a great time in Seattle thanks in part to Laura's easy and flexible check in. I only saw her on the second day but she was super friendly. The room was very cozy with a comfy bed, it is a bit far from DT but if you don't mind walking then its not that big of an issue. Plus its a great way to experience each little corner. If you're flying in take the light rail (2.50?), also rent a bike from Timbuk2 (free! with a deposit), get out n check all the usual Space Needle, Pike's Market, etc. I would def stay here again, however, consider its a good 30 min walk to DT. Thanks Laura
Laura was nice and she was very busy and tried to do as much as she could. i did not realize it was a african-american neighborhood, though close to international district. It was not up to my cleanness and comfort standard, but considering the room rate, her place was good for the traveller with a budget
Great location and several bus stops a few steps outside the front door and available parking for my vehicle . I stayed with Laura for 3 months while working on contract for a hospital less than 2 miles away. It was a good experience and she is a kind and energetic host. I'd recommend Laura to others as her location is ideal for visiting downtown and many major tourist attractions.
I loved staying at Laura's house. It was very cozy and comfortable and the room was lovely. Laura is an adorable host as well! I had a great stay and will be staying with her in the future!
She's absolutely amazing, and so is her home and neighborhood. You will feel so at home here.
Laura is the ideal guest - wonderfully communicative, extremely tidy, and so very pleasant!
