Our youngest daughter got married in Seattle and we stayed in Pia's and John's lovely home. Our group consisted of two sets of grandparents, my brother and sister-in-law and my husband and myself.
This home has wonderful views as well as access to Portage Bay. There are two levels with access in front from the street. The street access floor consists of kitchen (the most well supplied kitchen I've encountered - wonderful!), breakfast nook, formal dining room, a large front room with grand piano, and a large living room with floor to ceiling windows from which to view the bay, as well as a master bedroom and full bathroom.
The downstairs contains a garden level entertainment room complete with television, comfortable sofas and chairs as well as a library and access to the garden. The other three bedrooms are also on this level as well as laundry room, exercise room and two bathrooms.
My sister-in-law is unable to negotiate stairs and the street level master bedroom worked well to accommodate her and my brother. This is something to keep in mind for this property.
Our party loved sitting in the street level living room and enjoying the views and peace and quiet of Portage Bay. We would have loved to have spent more time doing so had we not had so many wedding activities going on. Perhaps another time!
Pia and John were very good communicating and keeping me well informed. Their home is set up with all information needed to know where and how to operate everything in the house as well as some local information as to shopping and restaurants.
We had a wonderful stay, thanks Pia and John!
