A Charming Architectural Masterpiece!

  • 5 of 5
What a delightful experience to stay in this charming garden "cottage" in such a lovely neighborhood! We enjoyed every minute of our stay, and hostess Peggy was extremely helpful and accommodating. Though attached to the main house, the "cottage" gives the feel of a very private space with its own spacious patio, sheltered by the most magnificent tree. Everything was perfect - even our own off-street parking - in Seattle! Because I am fascinated by architecture, I was truly impressed by the great use of space! Everything you could possibly need is there: an office nook, a laundry, complete kitchen, spacious bedroom with plenty of storage, over-the-top bath with jacuzzi, and a living/dining area with a truly magnificent view. We highly recommend this great Seattle stay.

This rental is just gorgeous. It is even more beautiful than the photos show, if that's possible. It is so well stocked and equipped with everything you could ever need. We rent VRBO often and I always try to leave something to improve the kitchen equipment...not this time. I couldn't think of thing that wasn't there.

The location is perfect. Peggy and David allow pets and a mile down the road is the BEST dog park ...ever. It was a terrific way to start a day. It is also convenient to the freeway north and south. Also, I found it fun to follow 45th Street, which changes to Market, all the way to Ballard. Lot to see there! Lunch @ Anthony's..yum

The property is not wheelchair accessible, inside or is easy access for limited mobility.

Peace and Quiet with Charm, Seattle

We certainly appreciated all of the attention to detail to make your cottage feel like home. I appreciated the gorgeous bathroom and bathtub, the perfectly stocked kitchen, bedding, laundry, patio. The fresh flowers were over the top! And the milk, muffins and blueberries. Bill and were so inspired by your cottage, we came home and are updating our guest house. We hope to stay in your cottage again soon.

Adorable, Cozy, Brilliant Use of Space

  • 5 of 5
First, let me admit that as travelers go, we are pretty spoiled by years of business travel on the company's dime. (Oh, I won't lie - I'm like the Princess who Slept on the Pea when it comes to comfort.) So when I booked through homeaway for a family vacation, my hopes were high but expectations were low. We could not have been more delighted. This cottage is absolutely engineered to maximize comfort and space, and provides a lush, otherworldly setting where no detail has been overlooked. One's first sight upon arrival is the ancient tree that guards the patio, and it does indeed give the cottage a treehouse feel. Stepping inside and discarding one's wet boots, it's a delight to find that the floor is heated and the space is quite cozy. The pillowtop bed and the air mattress on the fold-out couch were both really comfy and the sheets were soft. The bathroom has a spa-like quality with the pebble floor, the Jacuzzi tub, gleaming white fixtures, and wonderful, full-sized shampoo & bath gel (those little bottles are so wasteful!). We didn't use the kitchen much but it was fully functional and well-stocked (and cute!). The bedroom walls are all closets & cabinets on one side, book shelves on the other, so there's a ton of storage space. Other features include a washer-dryer and a cute little office with a printer - you could really just move in here with a toothbrush and be fine. They even provide reusable shopping bags and recycling bins - you won't get that in any hotel! My only reservation in writing this review is that I want to stay here again and hope the cottage won't get too booked up, but I had to let people know what a great place this is. We only met the owner once but she was super-sweet and accommodating. If you are headed to Seattle, this is the place to stay.

Great visit April 2012 for 3 full weeks

  • 5 of 5
Booking now for a full month this April. Realized that we forgot to leave feedback last year. Last April's 3 week stay was perfect! Try and meet the owners as they are wonderful host. Cute place, quiet, and close to stores, parks, and walking & bike trials. They have it packed for your arrival and will help with any information, suggestions or items needed. So looking forward to next month in Seattle and staying here again.

Quiet and Secluded Bungalow

  • 3 of 5
My Wife and I had the pleasure of meeting both the owners and we really appreciated Peggy's attention to our needs and preparing the cottage prior to our arrival. A lot of very special touches, breakfast treats, coffee, she made It very quaint and nice. Location is excellent

This was our very first attempt with and I must say we were pleasantly pleased. Although I did have some complaints that garnished the rating from 5-3.5. We also had an ant issue but Peggy was very understanding in helping us through it. A little bit of work and these changes would easily score a five in future visits.Thank you.

1) W-ifi - The Wi-fi is a pet-peeve of mine. I am in the IT business and we used the Wi-Fi everyday. Most days I could not get on the network, connection issues were either dropping connection, and at time times no connection at all along with a weak signal. The best signal is against the wall in the bedroom.
2) The sound of the television through the walls of the owners residence was loud enough to be heard all the way across the apartment.
3) The sofa/futon was hard and uncomfortable. The throw pillows had an oily body odor smell.
4) The bed was hard and has an indention in the middle so everything rolls to the center.
