Generally speaking the Golden Rule applies. Also, specifically, the following ten house rules apply. Please read these carefully:
- 1. This apartment and entire house property is non-smoking: smoking is prohibited from the entire property, including the parking lot and yard.
- 2. As you have probably noticed, we rate the apartment as Not Suitable for infants and children. What we mean is that the apartment is absolutely NOT child proofed. And it has a potentially dangerous front door entryway (tiled floor) and stairway up to the floor level of the apartment.
- 3. We require that all guests in your group be included in the booking. If your booked group exceeds 2 persons: all persons beyond the first 2 in your group will be subject to the Additional guest fee regardless of age.
- 4. We live in the downstairs (first floor of the house) and require everyone follow Quiet Hours between 10PM and 8AM. And we require everyone follow the no excessive noise rule 24/7. We ourselves follow both of these noise rules.
- 5. The smart TV is DVR capable, and you may have up to six (6) shows saved at any one time.
- 6. You agree to show us and allow us to copy a verified government-issued picture ID of every person who will be staying with and visiting you. We require 72 hour advance notice of any planned arrival of additional guests you are inviting to stay overnight (guests who are not part of the group you originally booked with us for your stay).
- 7. We do not allow our apartment to be used as a conference, party, or reception facility. Casual dinner gatherings are fine as long as all the other house rules are followed. Any gathering in the apartment of more than ten (10) persons needs to be cleared with hosts at least 48 hours in advance.
- 8. One parking space is available for you in the parking area behind the house. It is the spot behind the RV, and is in-between the yellow stripes.
- 9. We require that guests use the Wifi internet for legal purposes only and not engage in any illegal activity from the Wifi we supply.
- 10. We require our guests to inform us as immediately as possible when something in the apartment needs attention or if there is something about the apartment you find unsatisfactory.

This is a relaxed, spacious, clean, upper floor apartment in a modestly hip neighborhood within easy walking of a great diversity of restaurants and public transportation. Fussier renters should know that the house is truly victorian and the amenities like the bathrooms and some decor is "well loved" and dated. The beds are huge and comfortable, and the neighborhood quiet. If you want sleek and modern, this ain't for you; but if you want comfort and convenience this is it. (There are considerable stairs if you're hauling heavy bags.) The PCC grocery store next door is wonderful - akin to a Whole Foods. Parking in Seattle can be a pain so the provided spot is a bonus- however, it's tight so recommend only a compact or small car. It was warm when we were there and there's no AC but owners provide fans and windows can be opened. Overall a "plus" rental - not cheap - but location is ideal if you like to eat and explore!

Julie's house is fantastic. Very spacious with lots of room for a family. One block away from the darling downtown Columbia City. Great restaurants and shops on a very charming street! Would highly recommend staying here!

This place is very convenient to a variety of food establishments. And if you want to go downtown, public transportation is a very short walk away.

This home was very comfortable for our family if 4 plus a cousin. Our kids are 18 and 20. 2 bedrooms were very large with extremely comfortable beds. The 3rd was of a comfortable size with a firm bed. The kitchen was well appointed for any sort of food prep or snacks, and everything was very clean and fresh smelling. The garden was lovely and being next to the park was pleasant, too. We bought food for breakfast and so enjoyed being able to walk to great restaurants and snacks. While not right in the city, the neighborhood was good and had many convenient amenities.

Response from Julie:
Thanks, Jackie! Just to clear up any misconception from your review, Our home IS located right in Seattle; just not downtown Seattle. Seattle is made up of many different neighborhoods, and ours is called Columbia City, but it is definitely in Seattle, about 5 miles from the heart of downtown. We appreciate you staying with us, and would love to host you anytime.
