Rachelle was lovely and the Bamboo Bungalow was an ideal place to stay. The fridge was stocked with food, and Rachelle couldn't have been more generous. When my daughter saw a cute little penguin toy there, Rachelle immediately offered it to her. It already has a special place in her room as a souvenir of our time in Seattle. We hope to stay there again next time we visit Seattle.
The Bamboo Bungalow is very simple & quaint - perhaps a touch rough-around-the-edges, but quite serviceable for a guy like me.
My hostess Rachelle was extremely warm, friendly, and helpful - even going to the trouble of stocking the fridge with a few food items prior to arrival.
The only 'downsides' are very mild: there is no TV, and the wifi/ cell service is a quite spotty unless you're standing in the very front of the space (i.e. by the front door).
The bed was comfy, and there are two futons and a couple other basic furnishings in the living room/ kitchenette area.
Kitchen is tiny, but has everything you need to prepare meals, and having a washer/ dryer is a bonus!
Response from Bamboo:
Thank You Ryan. Yes at thee bamboo bungalow it is "TV" less! more time for walks and creativity of the mind.
A nice place to stay in Seattle. Photos of the place are accurate. Location is ideal esp if you have a car. Still, a bus stop is just right in front of the house. I do appreciate Rachelle for being really accommodating and understanding throughout my stay. Book it!
The Bamboo Bungalow was the perfect place for us to stay while in Seattle. It was a 15 minute bus ride away from downtown, and a 15 minute walk to great food and shops.
The Bungalow was clean and well supplied. The kitchen is a little small for cooking gourmet meals, but we were able to cook great breakfasts. Rachelle provided us with delicious, local eggs, bread, and bananas.
I would definitely recommend this place to a friend. It's the largest space you can get for the price.
The bamboo bungalow was great! Perfect actually. We came up to Seattle with my 2 year old son and the hosts had set up a high chair and pack n' play for us.. It was so incredibly thoughtful, really made the whole trip easier, toys too!
Location was great and the apartment is awesome, large, great bathroom, kitchen and sleeping arrangements. Literally couldn't have hoped for a better experience.
We will undoubtedly be back!
Our stay was Wonderful, and served our need-a-base-to-explore-Seattle-with-kids purpose perfectly.
Rachelle was a wonderful hostess, and had the space totally ready for our arrival. We thoroughly (thoooroughly) appreciated the milk, eggs, teas and cereal and bananas. Oh my!
The space was clean, well maintained and fit for purpose. Double fold down couch/futon for the kids. Wifi worked for our needs, in fact all the amenities were great (stove top, microwave, dishwasher, washer dryer)
The neighborhood is totally cool to explore with great architectural diversity, and proximity to the lake was a welcome surprise, while access to Downtown and I-5 was pretty easy. On street parking was no problem.
I'd would certainly stay again.
The Bungalow is great! My girlfriend and I were looking for a nice, quiet weekend in the city without the cold, sterile environment of a hotel, and the Bungalow was perfect! Rachelle was awesome and made us feel right at home. The local foods (berries, bread, bananas, eggs) were great and we just stayed in and made breakfast both mornings. Great little bars and restaurants in Madison Park just down the road. Couldn't have asked for a better location. Highly recommend the Bungalow and look forward to visiting again!
We had a wonderful stay at the Bamboo Bungalow. The place was just like pictures, clean, good vibes, quiet. It was in a nice neighborhood called Madrona with shops, restaurants, and bus lines near by. Bernard & Rachelle were wonderful hosts, we were delighted by the local loaf of bread, eggs, and even coconut water in the fridge to name a few! We will definitely recommend this place to our friends!
Sweet simple space in a fantastic part of Seattle. The bed was comfy and we walked to dinner.
Nice bungalow. Very spacious. Food in the refrigerator was nice. Recommended!
I stayed at the Bungalow, a few years ago and i especially found the host and hostess to be wonderful, kind and a breath of fresh air. ( i have actually known this couple many years and they are really good at this) The hostess even packed a super healthy Organic lunch for me to take on the road!! This is a great deal! Cool Location with a Stove, Fridge, W&D and Clean and Safe! I Enjoyed my three day stay! ~Shannon Buller
