I live in downtown Seattle and enjoy being outdoors and spending time with friends. I know all of the best local happy hours and places to eat, just ask if you need a recommendation.
NOTE: Because the host canceled my reservation 7 days before arrival, I did not actually stay. Nevertheless, I want to share my experiences.
I emailed the host twice, six weeks before the booking date, and the host did not reply to any of my questions. A week before the booking date, the host canceled for personal reasons (which is understandable, and I sympathize). However, as a cherry on the cake, she sent me a copy pasted message with somebody else's name on it. Overall, I must draw the conclusion that this host does not communicate well with guests, personal crisis or not.
The condo was a perfect place for my husband and I during our stay in Seattle. It had everything we needed and was walking distance from major attractions. The condo was clean, cozy, and offered a nice view of the Sound. We would definitely recommend this condo to others and request it again, should we ever return to Seattle. Thanks, Alicia!
Alicia's was a wonderful host - efficient, friendly and a good communicator. I had an evening flight home and she very kindly allowed me a late check-out. The apartment is delightful. It's set in a safe, modern block and is clean and comfortable. Best of all is the location in the heart of Belltown, a buzzy neighbourhood with loads of great eateries and bars. Don't miss the Macrina bakery nextdoor. Some people might find the street noise (traffic and revellers) a problem but not me. I slept like a baby. Highly recommended!
Exactly as advertised, the apartment was immaculate in every possible way. Alicia was very helpful and friendly. Highly recommend!
My son and I enjoyed our 8 night stay at Alicia's condo in Seattle.
She met us with a key on our arrival and showed us around, even though it was late afternoon on Christmas Eve. The location is excellent, an easy stroll down to Pike Place Market and the Waterfront.
The main drawback with this property is the lack of onsite parking. If you arrive with a car, be prepared to constantly have to move it and pay for parking. There is free street parking from 8pm to 8am, but as this is such a popular area with lots of restaurants, most times you have to park far far away. The small lot opposite can be used overnight but you will have to move your car before 6am !!! There is 3 minute parking out front for loading/unloading only.
The condo is comfortable and has water views.There is a queen bed in the bedroom, but only a sofa (not sofabed) in the living area.
We spent 4 nights at the condo and really enjoyed our stay. The location was perfect as it offered a more local perspective on the city while still being very close to downtown. We walked everywhere and enjoyed exploring the neighborhood and surrounding areas. The bakery/coffee shop downstairs was both convenient and a welcome alternative to our usual Starbucks habit.
While we didn't end up cooking, the condo has all the kitchen basics to make a meal and we appreciated the option. Overall, the condo is cozy and a comfortable place to start and end each day. Our only complaints were the street noise and squeaky bed, but we would def. stay here again.
Alicia's condo was very clean and the location was perfect; within walking distance of the water front, Pike Place Market, the Space Needle and Macy's. Alicia greeted us when we arrived and checking in was a breeze. We cannot wait to go back and stay at Alicia's place.
Our stay was wonderful! Located in Belltown, we had access to restaurants, bars, shops, and the waterfront. While the neighborhood can get a bit lively on the weekends, the windows in the apartment were able to lock out much of the noise. The bakery located just downstairs was a dangerous indulgence to have so close but we loved it! The bed and the sofa were comfortable and Alicia was a pleasure to meet. We stayed for a month as we arranged for our permanent move to Seattle, and she made sure we had everything we needed (and even set us up with wifi). It was a lovely experience.
Beautiful condo, great location, can walk to everything, great view and very accommodating host. I will stay here again when I visit Seattle.
I booked this unit for my family who were visiting from out of town. I had the opportunity to meet Alicia and view the unit before she handed me the keys. I felt the unit was decent sized for a couple (3 would be the largest I'd recommend). Both living room and the bedroom had a water view. With the amenities the building had to offer, and the location of the place, I'd say the price point for renting this unit out was excellent. I'd recommend this unit and Alicia as a host to anyone.
