This charming 'mother-in-law' studio is the perfect get-away! It is cozy and comfortable, and the Murphy bed makes efficient use of the space. The backyard is so peaceful and serene, it's hard to believe you're merely blocks away from 4-star resta …
This was clean efficient studio apartment, well appointed and maintained. The owner was helpful but not hovering. Perfect spot for a few nights while we visited family close by. Very convenient to shops, restaurants, bars, and groceries. Very close (1 block) to buses for downtown Seattle and Seattle Center (Space Needle). Parking permit was a blessing and no added cleaning few an added bonus!
We'll definitely be going back!
Leah was great. The place is clean roomy and just a good place to stay. The backyard is fantastic. This was a special vacation for us and Leah came out to the backyard and took some pictures for us. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone. The bed is comfy, bathroom roomy and a great shower. You are close enough to walk to a grocery store or we walked down to the pikes market. We stayed for two nights before an Alaskan cruise.
High praise goes to the "Serene Get Away in the Heart of the City" vrbo, which is aptly described. Many thanks to the owner, who has put together a fantastic spot that is perfect for one to two people. This is a basement set up that is well appointed - placement of items are well-considered, exellent storage, all kitchen items are there (even a food processor), and who can resist a murphy bed (very comfortable) and lovely smelling soap in the bathroom (yes, we purchased some of it at the Co-Op nearby)!. Perfect location for taking the bus and doubly great too for being able to have access to a Zipcar and even to a myriad of Car-2-gos. Outdoor space in the backyard was lovely as well (sorry we didn't get to grill). We most definitely will want to stay here again the next time we are in Seattle.
A friend and I recently stayed for 4 days in Seattle at this lovely property in the Capitol Hill area. The Slanted Ivy was an affordable and private alternative to staying in a hotel while visiting the many attractions and great sights in the Pacific Northwest . We especially enjoyed the fabulous backyard and spent many of the late afternoons eating and conversing with friends around the fire pit. Plan to return in the future! Pam from North Carolina
I was so thrilled when I arrived at this beautiful home. The grounds are so well kept and a great spot to sit and relax. The apartment was lovely, spacious and very clean. Anything you could possibly need is within walking distance or a short bus ride. Was the perfect place for me to stay. Leah is an excellant hostess. I only hope I get the opportunity to go back.
We spent a weekend (3 nights) at this property in mid-May, 2013. We found the unit to be very clean, comfortable, and a perfect size for the 2 of us. We love to walk and found it easy to walk into the heart of Seattle from this location (probably 35 minutes into downtown and 50 minutes back to the unit, since it is uphill on the way back). That said, my fiancee and I are in pretty good shape and run daily, so if you're not a big fan of walking then you'll want to take transit from the basement suite to the city center. Our only complaint is that the unit was rather cold, even when we turned on the extra heating... which made it pretty chilly in the evening. Other than that though, the unit was perfect and we would definitely stay here again!
The property being rented is located in a quiet neighbourhood. The public transportation is within several minutes walk and the service is regular. The bus drive to downtown Seattle takes about 10 minutes.
The appartment is equipped with a small kitchen, bathroom, Murphy bed.. The owner was very kind and there were two types of unground coffee, and three different types of tea at the disposal. And mind you, these were the expensive types from the most popular tea shop in Seattle. A very nice gesture indeed!
Altogether, I sincerely recommend the property to future renters!
Leah was a very nice hostess! She had delicious tea and coffee (both local) available along with an array of brochures and articles that detail various places to visit while in Seattle. The only advice I would have for future guests are to bring a couple of extra pillows for added comfort.The place was clean and very convenient to Capitol Hill shopping places, grocery stores (QFC, Safeway, and Trader Joe's), and bus stops to traverse Seattle. We truly appreciated Leah's kindness! For the money, this place is the bang for your buck!
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Slanted Ivy Vacation Rental. Leah was a great host. This perfect little "Mother-in-law" one-room apartment was clean, comfortable and perfectly located within walking distance to wonderful shopping, dining and studying hangouts. Remedy Teas is a must visit. Also, the Wandering Goose (breakfast), Oddfellows and Jamjaree are great dining establishments. This property is also centrally located to University of Washington (access through bus #43 - 15 minutes) and downtown (15-20 minutes, also bus #43). My stay was longer than most (3 weeks) and I loved studying in the backyard garden! I was able to walk to Volunteer Park (30 minute walk) and visit St. Mark's cathedral (also, 30 minute walk) to hear Compline (an also must-hear). It was the perfect home-away-from-home! This VRBO is on my list to visit again! Would recommend for single visitors, longer-stays, and those without vehicles who want to see the sights of Seattle.
Perfect location and easy access to all areas of Seattle either on foot, bus, light rail etc. The property owner was very nice and helpful and open to accommodating our needs.
The property was very clean and cute, a bump up from a hotel room because of the kitchenette and the price was right!
The little garden was adorable and would have been a big plus had we been visiting another time of year. It had a fire pit, out door seating and a bbq grill.
This home is all about location. You really are walking distance from so much that the Capitol Hill has to offer. The home is very clean, has all the amenities you need and the back courtyard area makes it hard to leave. Leah was great to work with and we would definitely consider staying here again.
This place is highly recommended. Several bus lines near to the rental. The owner is very pleasant and very accomodating. If I go back to Seattle, I will seek out Leah's rental!
Comfortable. Small. Clean. Everything you need for a place to hang your hat while seeing the sights in Seattle.
