When deciding on a Seattle rental, the most important thing on my checklist was to find a home that allowed for opportunities to walk around a safe neighborhood, as well as be within walking distance to local shops and restaurants. This rental met this priority with flying colors! When time allowed, our party of 4 enjoyed our relaxing strolls through the neighborhood and taking in the beautiful landscapes of individual homes. (Not to mention the water view) In the mornings we often walked into the village for breakfast or for coffee.
The home is also relatively close to the major Seattle sites. As a yearly visitor to Seattle, I have begun using the "Uber" app (similar to a taxi service but much better and cheaper) to get me to all those sites without the hassle of parking fees and traffic. I highly recommend it! I used it numerous times while visiting.
It is also worth noting that any of my questions in regards to the rental were answered in a timely manner and handled professionally.
The highest recommendation I could give is to say that I would return, and that is just what I plan on doing for 2015!
