This house is centrally located to everything!! Ten minutes from the heart of Seattle! Walk to waterfront, restaurants, or just stay in and enjoy the views and incredible amenities this house has to offer!
We had three generations of our family stay here for a weekend get together, including four kids aged 8 - 13. We were all very impressed by the house. It was luxurious, spacious, well laid out, comfortable, and had an amazing view. The kitchen had high end appliances and was fully stocked with everything we needed. We enjoyed the extras like popcorn for the home theatre and the wine room! We went for lovely runs and walks in the neighbourhood including the beach area just past the ferry terminal. Amy was really prompt in answering questions, and great to deal with. We had a fantastic time and would consider this house again, and recommend it to others.
My family of six traveled here for a wedding. None of us had been to Seattle before and little did we know we were in for a HUGE treat. Amy and Steve do an amazing job keeping this house absolutely perfect. We loved everything about it!! It was clean, picturesque and wonderful for large groups. The view was even more beautiful in person and the location was ideal.
We loved being near the city, but enjoyed being in an outer neighborhood. Just a short walk away was an amazing walking trail along the beach and a bakery with tasty lattes and doughnuts. After long days of touring in the city we had no trouble finding fine dining.
I would highly recommend this home to all. We didn't want to leave!! It was easy and fast to book, speedy check-in and out, and we had complete privacy the entire long weekend. This was overall the best experience.
Nine members of my family stayed in this fantastic home. Each family had their own room and there are four bathrooms so we didn't have the battle of which group got the bathroom. Amy was just great to work with and our view of Puget Sound was just breath taking. Breakfast on the deck looking at the view was really a treat for us. We didn't have a car but certainly could have had one if we wanted. We used Rapid Ride which was just about a block and a half away, and family dining was just a block away. We will recommend this home to anyone who is interested. The interesting thing is that on Rapid Ride we met a individual that had also stayed at the same house and highly recommended it to us.
Thanks to Amy and Steve for a great time with our family for our 50th anniversary.
I rented this property for my family to stay in while in town for my wedding. The house was perfect for my large family. It was open and airy with a great view. The house was perfect because the 3 bedrooms were upstairs one on the main level and another on the lower all with plenty of bathrooms which allowed my family room so they would not be on top of each other. Working with the owners was no problem, we had 1 day where the hot water needed to be reset and they came over immediately and instantly fixed the issue. I would definitely rent this house again!
It was time for our family annual holiday get-together and my grown children wanted to try a new location, Seattle. I found a few home rentals that I preferred but was not excited about. My children found this property but I was reluctant to spend a little more. I was outvoted. Boy, am I glad. This was the perfect house in a great location for everyone to spend a few days together, entertain friends in the area, and was centrally located for all of our outside activities. I must say that I lost some weight over Thanksgiving carrying so many loads of clothing, food, wine, and liquor up and down all of those stairs. The house is spacious enough for everyone to have all the privacy they wanted. My 9 year old grand-daughter loved the tiny computer room with the single bed. My wife and I loved the enormous master bedroom suite that included a memorable bathroom with a multi-headed shower, great views and a private deck to help enjoy the beautiful sunsets above the Sound. The kitchen met and exceeded all of our needs for our daily feasts. There was ample parking using the garage and passes to park on the street. There was also easy street parking for our guests. There is a very popular restaurant a few steps away that we did not use because we were constantly stuffed. I could go on and on but the bottom line is that everyone had our best Thanksgiving ever and this wonderful property was the perfect place to enable it.
I am a bit reluctant to write this review because we would love to return for another Thanksgiving and this property is pretty unique.
This home is absolutely gorgeous with a breathtaking view. My husband & I needed a home that would accommodate us & 6 of our friends. We listed this home amongst 2 others for our group to pick from. Everyone was sold once they saw the pictures and read about all the available amenities.
There are 2 balconies to watch the beautiful sunset over Elliot Bay & Olympic Mountains. One balcony is just off the living room area and the other is off the master bedroom. The balcony off the living room is quite sizable & has a glass patio table with plenty of chairs. The view was slightly obstructed by some power lines, but we quickly got over the distraction. The balcony off the master bedroom provides a better vantage point & allows you to wave to friends sitting on the lower balcony.
The kitchen is a cook's dream. We cooked enough bacon, eggs, & sausages each morning to feed an army easily. The house also has spices readily available that were left behind by other tenants. However, if you need more spices, there is a 7-Eleven on SW Barton & 35th Ave. There is also a Safeway a little further up the road for more serious cooking needs. Endolyne Joes across the street provided decent lunch/dinner meals. The bakery next door to had some fantastic pastries! The cinnamon roll & the pizza bread type thingy were a big hit. The backyard grill cooked 12 burgers & 6 sausages in one go.
There's a fire pit in the backyard & the house is stocked w/ duraflame logs. We spent each and every night around the fire pit, sipped wine while chatting and watching the stars twinkle away. The master suite is amazing. Has a wonderful view and the master bath is luxurious. The soaking bath tub is deep & has a window about 6 in. tall that spanned along the wall (just under the main picture window) that allows you to open to let in the nice & fresh PacNW air & provides a wonderful view as you soak away. The shower has a main shower head & several in-wall shower jets to get you at every angle. All the beds were super comfortable and the house had plenty of space for everyone to meander and to get away from everyone if needed. WiFi was easily accessible and the house is equipped with a central sound system that runs off a docked smartphone. Both items were a big hit with the bunch of geeks on this trip.
The drive into downtown usually took about 15-30 minutes.
Amy was amazing & very communicative. Answered every question that we had & was very patient. We look forward to staying here again!
