My husband and I wanted a short "staycation" close to Seattle. This little home in Sudden Valley was great, especially for the unbeatable price! We hadn't heard of the neighborhood and had no idea what to expect. Basically, it's like a master planned suburb in the forest. The house itself is eclectic with a mix of funky updates (paint), new construction (bathroom tile and kitchen island), and just old stuff (heaters). The space is perfect for two people with a comfy bed and a wood stove. The owner responded quickly to our emails once we were there. Our only concern was that we weren't sure if she was going to show up or be staying there. The upstairs is off limits b/c she lives there some of the time. We never saw her, but that may be something to confirm with her beforehand.
