Everything we expected!
George's place is exactly as advertised and we had a great stay. As other reviewers have commented, George is extremely responsive and helpful before and during your stay offering advice on weather, activities, and restaurants. Having a code for the door instead of a key was really convenient and the parking space was adequate (we had a minivan so it was a little tight but definitely do-able). The location is awesome for getting to West Seattle (downtown, Pike Place, etc.) and the Space Needle, especially if you use the light rail. It is an older home and the second (hallway) bathroom has a small shower stall but the master bedroom and bath is exceptionally large and well appointed. There is no shortage of storage space and the kitchen had everything we needed. We were there with another couple and gave them the master suite while we slept on the foldout sofa. We are both close to 6' tall, average build, and found the sofa quite comfortable with plenty of room for us. I was surprised at how quiet it was at night in such a densely populated area; the noisiest things were the garbage and recycle trucks. There was a dog in the downstairs apartment but we only heard him bark at us on our initial arrival and then never again during our weeklong stay. There is also a very sweet cat outdoors that greeted us most mornings and evenings. It was great to have access to the washer and dryer; made it so much easier to pack as we had another week elsewhere after leaving Seattle. All in all, we can't say enough about how wonderful our stay with George was and that we will definitely stay with him again!
