“Great house!”
Reviewed 22 July 2018 for a stay in June 2018

This house was perfect! We had to come to Seattle for the 2018 USA Special Olympics being held at Washington State University and this was the perfect location! Close to everything, including a beach and Starbucks( which was a must!). The house itself was amazing and very well stocked. Spacious enough so that we didn't trip over each other! We spent a lot of our down time on the deck enjoying the peace and quiet. There was a very nice note and flowers from the owner welcoming us when we arrived. A couple of times I texted Laura asking directions and she was very friendly and quick to respond. I would certainly recommend this rental and hope that maybe someday we can get back there! Thanks again Laura!!

“Seattle Rental”
Reviewed 25 June 2018 for a stay in June 2018

This is a lovely home. Very quiet neighborhood. Well written instructions for the entire house. One draw back is there is a lot of stairs ( bedrooms are on upper or lower floors). It was fine for my son and I but my mother-in-law was tired of them by the end of our trip. I would still rent the house again. Lovely porch to enjoy and it feels like you are sitting in the middle of a forest. This house was contently located to shops and cafes/bakeries.

“Awesome home away from home”

We booked for a quick vacation with our family of three boys. Big boys, 18 year old twins and 15. We had plenty of space and enjoyed the home. Great location with plenty of spots to walk to for breakfast and dinner. We choose to not rent a car and used uber to hit the city highlights and this spot was a welcome home base. Would book again when we visit Seattle!

“Lovely Home in Heart of Seattle”
Reviewed 2 September 2017 for a stay in July 2017
1
person found this review helpful

This lovely home is located across the street from the Washington Park Arboretum. Beautiful large trees on the property and in neighborhood make it feel very private. The location has easy access to Downtown, Pike Market, Space Needle, Waterfront and Lake Washington among others. The home is very comfortable and cosy. A kitchen fit for a gourmand was my favorite. With Trader Joe's several blocks away, you are never in need of fabulous food for great meals. It is easy to get around by car in Seattle or if you don't like city driving, public transportation is a great option. Madison Ave, less than 1 block away is a street that runs from Lake Washington to the Seattle Waterfront. We simply loved this home and location.

“Well positioned house to access Downtown Seattle and the surrounding area.”
Reviewed 20 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016
1
person found this review helpful

The house is spacious and is on three levels, which gave all family members a bit of their own 'space' to chill after long days out sightseeing. There was plenty of reading material, games and TV selection when wanting to relax.

There are a couple of supermarkets in either direction of the house. If considering budget -the one up at the waterfront was well stocked but a little expensive, while the other had a lesser range of goods but was cheaper. About 5 minutes away on the bus towards downtown there is a Safeway.

The house is a couple of minutes from the bus stop and the buses run frequently into Seattle, with the journey taking about 15 minutes. The area surrounding the house is lovely.

The main attractions in Seattle are well signposted and found to be enjoyable. We came across The Sculpture Park by accident and sadly were unable to look around all of it. There was a sculputre by Jaume Plensa called Echo; in my town, St Helens UK, there is also a Plensa sculputre called Dream, so if you are in Seattle pack your sandwiches and go for a walk around the Sculpture Park.

Overall, the house, the location and the people made our time in Seattle fantastic.

“Great property in fantastic location”
Reviewed 10 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

The Urban Retreat is only about 3 miles from downtown Seattle but is an a lovely location surrounded by trees. Madison Park is a few minutes walk away, and there are regular buses into Seattle. We didn't have a hire car for a first couple of days so used the buses and ate at the local Pizzeria. We got groceries from Burts which was about a 15 minute walk down the road - a few minutes further on and we found the Madison Bay area with lots of restaurants and a beach on Lake Washington. Once we'd got the car we were able to explore further afield including a trip to the Mount Ranier National Park, and also the Boeing Factory at Everett.

The photos on the webpages give you a really good idea of the house and its layout. We loved the outside area with the decking, and also the sense of space. The house was very well equipped, there wasn't anything we needed that wasn't available. The only minor downside I can think of is that the WiFi was a bit intermittent.

Would definitely recommend this property as a base if you want to experience Seattle and the surrounding area.

Thank you so much for your lovely positive review! I'm so glad you had a great time in Seattle! I wish you had told me about the wifi issue, as we could have fixed that. Sorry for that frustration!
If your travels bring you back to Seattle, we'd love for you to come back to our Seattle Urban Retreat!
