A photographer by trade & passion. I love waking up in a city I don't actually live in. Good food & drinks are always a priority, especially expertly crafted experimental cocktails.
My wife and I stayed in Jessie's apartment for a month during the fall and had a great time. Other reviews have noted it is cozy, and it certainly is--but that doesn't mean it's small! It is organized as a studio with the bedroom separated by a sliding partition, but that's probably to comply with the fire code, because the open floor plan is at least as big as a good-sized 1 bedroom apartment. It is probably 700-800 sqft, and has plenty of storage space throughout the kitchen, bath, bedroom and other areas for whatever you might be carrying. As stated, we were there for 1 month, but could have stayed indefinitely!
Other nice features which aren't obvious until you get there include an extra-wide range/oven (36" instead of the typical 30"), plentiful on-street parking, a very soft and comfortable bed, lots of bright lighting options, fast & effective heaters, and a double-basin kitchen sink with a waste disposer. There is excellent sound isolation between the apartment and the house above it. PCC, the best organic grocery in Seattle is within walking distance (about 1km). The apartment was also very clean, and very recently remodeled, with many well-chosen, high-quality materials. It is delightfully obvious that the designer had a great sense of both style and practicality.
We entertained many pairs of local friends at the apartment during our stay. All commented favorably, and at least half also asked us to email them the AirBNB link. So don't hesitate--if this apartment is available, jump on it!
Great spot with all mod cons near to local bars, restaurants and coffee shops of Phinney. Jessie has put a lot of thought into the place making it a very comfortable spot to stay.
My first time to Seattle, and first time using AirBNB and I was completely blown away with this apartment. It is exactly what the photos offer, and more! The place is comfortable, relaxing, clean, and splendidly fitted with funky decor art and features that make you feel right at home. The bed was to die for! So comfortable! The lounge area and kitchen had everything I needed for my stay and I appreciated having the study space, although I did most of my work lounging on the couch. The bar is a nice touch to the house, and although I did not partake in the beverages, it was nice to have the option to have a drink if I needed it. The location is excellent, with a few minutes up the road you arrive to an amazing organic market where I managed to pick up dinner several nights for under $10. I loved my stay at Jessies place and will recommend it to all of my NZ friends visiting here in future. Thank you so much for having me, Jessie
Jessie's place is the cutest little BNB ever! Although we were only there to sleep mostly, it was clean and very cozy. The place was GREAT! Thanks Jessie. We will be back. :)
We really like Jessie' apt. It's really cozy and the neighbors are friendly. The location is good. We really felt relaxed in this apt. We come back again when we traveling in Seattle.
This is a great apartment! Super clean, super comfortable.
There are a lot of really good restaurants and bars near by... Red Mill burgers are great! And there´s a farmers market that is open on the weekends just a couple of minutes away.
Jessie is really nice and helpful.
I would totally recommend this apartment.
Jessie's place was so wonderful; I fell in love with the area. And, Jessie was so easy to contact and pleasant. Her place was the first airbnb experience I had and I'm glad it was! Thanks, Jessie.
Jessie's apartment is aesthetically pleasing, very clean and very close to all of the lively amenities of Ballard and Phinney Ridge. I would be happy to stay here agin in the future.
Really good time in Jessie's house. The apartment was exactly as the pictures shows and she was a very nice host! The neighborhood was amazing, the people was so nice and there is a big market 3 blocks from the house where you can find everything you need. There were very good bus connections to downtown and u-district as well. My personal recommendations: don't miss to try Red Mill Burger, go to Greelake and if you like wine try Conde Valdemar (Spanish wine, you can buy it in the market near the house - Ken's Market).
Jessie's place has been my BEST experience with AirBnB!
We were in Seattle for 5 days and loved staying at her apartment. While it's not walking distance to downtown, it is only a bus-stop away and the route is lovely.
The place is walking distance from great restaurants, coffee shops, super market & a lovely park where you can go walking/running. The street looks like out of a fairy tale: wonderfull front lawns, lovely colors, full of flowers...
Before you arrive, Jessie shares a PDF document that has the full details of the house and restaurant recommendations. This was super helpful for us.
It's located on a basement so it gets a bit cold (especially for us coming from the tropics!) but it gets heated instantly and is super comfortable. Everything is brand new, wonderful shower pressure, very equiped kitchen to cook whatever you want and a perfectly working wifi.
If you are traveling to Seattle and want to live the full experience, this is definitely your best option.
Jessie and Cass were wonderful guests and just seemed like cool people! They were patient with me, as I was about 5 minutes late to meet them. They left the place really clean and I definitely recommend hosting them!
We hosted Jessie for just one night in our Portland home, everything was smooth and easy and she left the place very clean. Would definitely have her back any time!
Jessie was the ideal AirBNB guest, excellent communication, very clean, and everything went awesomely smooth. Thanks so much for making this community great Jessie!
Jessie and her partner stayed with me and they were wonderful guests. The apartment was left quite tidy when I returned and they were very respectful of the house rules. I would not hesitate to host them again or recommend them as guests to others.
Jessie was a great guest and I would have her back anytime.
Amazing guest! Very respectful, responsive and clean. Would definitely recommend Jessie and hope to host her again in NYC! :)
Love hosting Jessie's stays. She is very clean, and respectful of my home. Wish all my guests were like her! She is always welcome at my flat.
Great experience and we recommend this guest anytime!!
Very clean and respectful!!
Jessie and her partner were the perfect guests.
Jessie was the perfect guest and hopefully they enjoyed their rainy stay in Edinburgh!
