We had a wonderful experience staying in Rachel's beautiful town-home. The kitchen was beautiful and fully equipped with every gadget! The master bedroom and bathroom were cozy with a fireplace and dual sinks and large closet area. We are grateful for Rachel's hospitality, too. She made sure we were comfortable and had all our needs met. Grateful to have a home away from home!
Rachel's home is absolutely gorgeous in a perfect setting! We couldn't have been more comfortable! I will never stay in a hotel again when I visit Seattle. Rachel has stocked her home with every little comfort - there was even a sewing kit when my son lost his button! There is plenty of space for 4 people and stunning views from the upper levels. The kitchen is well stocked with anything you could possibly need. I can't say enough about this beautiful home away from home!
Rachel's townhouse is gorgeous! My parents, husband, 8 month old son and I stayed at Rachel's place over a long weekend. We didn't meet Rachel in person (she was out of town), but she left detailed information about the townhouse and the area, and she checked in with us via text, phone and email. Rachel was well prepared and organized, and a very kind host - she even left chocolates and fresh flowers for our stay! The townhouse is beautiful - spacious and open living/dining/kitchen area, 2 en-suite bedrooms, and lovely views over the Olympic mountains. It was immaculately clean. Everything was great and I highly recommend Rachel's townhouse. One note - the townhouse is on multiple levels, so be prepared to walk up and down steps (great exercise). It's a charming vertical living space, and there are great views from every room.
This was my first AirBnB experience, and I can say my experience was flawless. My site experience was seamless in every aspect -- reserving dates, confirming, payment, communication with the owner. Everything was clear, fast, and convenient.
For anyone considering Rachel's home, I can't say enough good things about her, her mother who helps with logistics, or her lovely home. It lives up to the stunning pictures and offers every imaginable comfort. I know of no comparable way to stay in as much comfort -- with a well-stocked, gourmet kitchen even -- for anything close to this price in the traditional world of hotels. The Seattle location is perfect -- close to everything with plenty of street parking and a stunning view of Ballard and the Olympics. Rachel is a responsive and caring hostess/owner -- her attention to detail is amazing. Our communication and via the telephone and over email was clear, helpful, and very gracious.
Thank you Rachel and Nancy! You helped male my holiday with my kids something special. We hope to stay with you again soon!
Rachel was a absolutely fabulous guest! She is highly recommended. She left my place in great shape, cleaner then when she got it! She is always welcome back :)
Rachel was such a considerate and charming guest, and I couldn't have asked for a better visitor for my first time being an absent host :). Rachel kept me very gently in the know of a couple issues she was having - which as a fellow host I very much appreciated since It gave me the chance to resolve them while she was still there. She also made me smile with her incredibly conscientious desire to take tidy up the flat before even the cleaner could come in :). My only regret is that I didn't have a chance to meet her in person, but hope our paths will cross again. I highly recommend Rachel if you ever have a chance to have her stay.
Rachel being a airbnb host herself is the perfect guest, considerate, clean and great company with interesting stories. I really enjoyed her company and hope we get to meet again. I would happily recommend her as a guest and would love to have her self again.
Thanks for being a lovely guest Rachel.
Rachel is a really friendly person. I didn't c her during the time, but communication was really easy to her. She left everything clean. Really nice guest.
We enjoyed hosting Rachel, she is an excellent guest and left our apartment in excellent condition. Rachel was very clean, good communicator and observed all the house rules. We would welcome her back anytime!
We enjoyed Rachel's friendly company.... she really enjoys life!
Rachel was a great guest. We did not see much of her when she was here but when we did, she was easy to communicate with and was respectful of our home and our privacy. We would welcome her to stay with us again anytime and we highly recommend her to other hosts.
I saw very little Rachel when she was here, but whenever I saw her she was lovely to chat with, very friendly, energetic and courteous. She was very clean and respectful of the space. I would recommend her to anyone considering having her as a guest.
Rachel was the perfect guest as she left my loft spotless and always communicated back to me about questions or concerns. I welcome her back!!
Rachel is a wonderful guest! She is welcome to stay with us again anytime.
I've been known to invite myself over to Rachel's home when I need some respite -- and it always delivers! Without fail, I leave feeling more relaxed and rejuvenated than when I arrived. The high ceilings, open floor plan, neutral color scheme, and incredible vista out the big front window all make for a warm and inviting space. Ahhhhh. (That's the sound of me kicking back on Rachel's sofa with a glass of wine and a good book.)
Bonus: It's very close to some of Seattle's best attractions, including Golden Gardens beach, Green Lake, and the Ballard Sunday Market.
Stay here and you may never want to leave. ;)
I've known Rachel for nearly two decades and I can vouch for how conscientious she is as a homeowner. I've visited her lovely home several times, and I'm always struck by it's warmth, as well as that gorgeous view of the Olympics. I lived in Seattle for many years, so I'm also familiar with Phinney Ridge. It's an ideal place to be if you're okay being slightly removed from Downtown (minutes by car), but want easy access to Seattle's choice satellite neighborhoods - Ballard, Fremont, Greenlake, Wallingford, Queen Anne, etc. Rachel does everything with care, and I know hosting is no exception for her. I'd definitely recommend a stay in her home.
Rachel is a close friend and, although I’ve never stayed in her home as an overnight guest, I’ve visited on many occasions. I can attest that she’s a gracious host and her home is warm and immaculate. Phinney Ridge is a beautiful neighborhood, conveniently located close to all Seattle neighborhoods. You won’t be disappointed!
