THE PLACE WAS EXACTLY WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR!

September 2015

Jose R. Andy and Lynne were great hosts! They did everything they could to make sure we had what we needed to feel at home. They even made sure that the cable and TV were working before they left. They were easy to talk to and very responsive to any questions that came up. There are two rooms with a total of three beds ( one bed fit two ) and there is a pull out bed downstairs. We were a group of 5 and we fit perfectly. There is only one shower so we had to play a lot of rock paper scissors to determine the order. The location is great, we never felt far away from anything, but we still got to stay in a nice quiet neighborhood. The place was exactly what I was looking for!

MADE US FEEL AT HOME WHILE IN SEATTLE!

September 2015

David P. From our initial contact through to our stay and afterward, the hosts were very prompt and helpful in responding to our questions. Prior to our stay, they shared their own guidebook to the greater Seattle area which was very helpful for their insights into the city which helped in our planning for our vacation. The townhouse was exactly as described and met our needs perfectly. The house was very clean and well taken care of and made us feel at home while we stayed in Seattle. We had a rental car and so the private parking space that was part of this townhouse came in very handy. When we arrived, they had a personal note to us, a bottle of wine, and a bag of snacks, etc. to welcome us. This was a very nice touch that made us feel at home. The townhouse is located in a great area and was nice and quiet. It was very convenient, very close to the city and various districts we went to. Andy and Lynne were great hosts and we do recommend their home to our friends and family. Thank you for helping us have a great vacation in Seattle!

NO MORE HOTELS FOR ME!

September 2015

Darla D. No more hotels for me, not when it is possible to rent with Andy and Lynne! I had 4 lovely days at The Chalet with two dear friends. We were in Seattle for a conference and a reunion. The two-bedroom craftsman was tastefully updated. Impeccably clean and elegantly appointed. The space is perfect for the three of us to be together and bedrooms were great when one needed a nap or to work on a presentation. The mattresses were firm and comfortable and the bedding was cozy. Andy and Lynne were very responsive hosts throughout our stay, quick to answer any question. They were always helpful. We went daily to the University of WA for a conference, and then usually downtown for meals. The location was great for both. We had a car, but one day we took a bus downtown, easy access, and then UBERed at the end of the day. I plan to stay at this unit or any of their properties whenever I am fortunate enough to travel to Seattle.

A COMFORTABLE HOME TO CALL YOUR OWN

October 2015

Duke S. Andy and Lynne were incredible hosts from our initial e-mail up until leaving the house. They gave me a bit of a deal due to the nature of my work, and I appreciate that very much. They also left us some wine and an incredible welcome package, very generous and welcoming. The house was immaculate, neat, and had basic needs covered all the way. I would suggest this house to any parties of 2-4 people who are looking for a comfortable home to call their own during their stay in Seattle!
