Guestbook comments from the owner
What an amazing job you have done on the home. You have truly anticipated your guests every need!! The beds were amazingly comfortable, the towels were luxurious and the master spa bathroom is out of this world. I spent a lot of time dancing around the magnificent spa bathroom. The acoustics are great and the radiant heating is such a treat!



We used the WI-FI a lot to suss out different neighbourhoods and pull up maps. We also got very excited when we discovered that the stereo in the living room had an iPod docking station! I'm sure your neighbours will have a few tales of the shadows through the blinds. 7 stressed women, 15 bottles of luscious wine and great music - I don't think I need to elaborate!



The house is truly a jewel in the stunning area of Queen Anne. Staying here puts you in the centre of everything great about Seattle. You are litterally 5-10 minutes from downtown, Ballard, Magnolia, Capital Hill and the University Area but don't forget to take a stroll through the neighbourhood as it is truly a stunning area. My only regret is that we didn't book your home for longer.



Everything was tremendous. I kept pinching myself to keep present and as a reminder that it was real and not some wonderful daydream I was having. Everyone felt the same way. We would love to rebook for next year.

PERFECTION IN EVERY WAY!

  • 5 of 5
I can't say enough good things about this home! My partner and I shared the home with my Mother and Aunt for a week. All the furnishings are 1st class and I challenge anyone to identify something that hasn't been thought of. The linens were fresh, clean and abundant. The furniture is very nice quality and provides numerous areas to read a book, take a nap or watch tv.

Holly couldn't have been more welcoming and gracious. I genuinely felt as if she was as excited as we were to be in the house! She made great recommendations and offered to answer any questions we might have during our stay. She has set a very high bar in my mind for property owners.

In summary, a great house in an incredible location for a visit to Seattle. All the good things in the reviews are true. If you see your dates are available, I wouldn't waste any time, book it!

BEAUTIFUL HOME, GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
As advertised, the home is beautiful and comfortable. We parked the car in the driveway and didn't use it for the next three days. We walked or took buses everywhere. I would definitely recommend this place.

AMAZING STAY - BEYOND OUR EXPECTATIONS

  • 5 of 5
My wife, two daughters and myself, loved this amazing Queen Ann's home. The house is perfectly located in one of the classiest and quiet neighborhoods. We were in heaven! The master bathroom is fantastic. Beautiful Views and super close to a few awesome restaurants. Can't say enough nice things about the owner as well.

We will be back no doubt!

COZY RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
We knew the weather would be chilly and wet this time of year in Seattle, and we could not have found a better place to stay. This home is warm and inviting.

The basement/den was a great place to unwind and play board games, read, or watch TV. We loved the pasteries and bread from Macrina Bakery on McGraw St. If you want the best butter cream icing, this is the place to go! One night we ordered from Pagliacci Pizza and the service was fast, accurate, and the pizzas were delicious.

Having a driveway to park in is definitely a plus since street parking is difficult to find.

Our six year old grandaughter came on vacation with us and she now wants to live in this house! It is very child friendly and there were lots of games and books for her.
I would recommend this property to anyone who wants a comfortable and beautiful home to stay in while exploring Seattle.

A SEATTLE GEM

  • 5 of 5
We rent houses often, all over the world, and wish they could all be like the Macallen House. It is very comfortable, very spacious, very easy to live in, the view is outstanding, and the location is marvelous – we walked everywhere. Everything was as advertised and pictured here. We rented the week of Christmas, and were able to have family over for Christmas dinner – large modern kitchen, good equipment, plenty of cooking and serving utensils, dinnerware, and a lovely large dining room. The beds are comfortable, the bathrooms large and modern, the living room and basement den a great place for gathering – a lovely house in every way. Check in and out is very easy, and the owners are very accommodating. We are in Seattle often to visit family, and plan to rent it again next time.

ELEGANT, SPACIOUS HOME IN QUEEN ANNE.

  • 5 of 5
MacAllen House is an exceptionally handsome and comfortable home. It is beautifully furnished, superbly located, and impeccably maintained. The bathrooms are luxuriously appointed, the kitchen well-equipped, the garden charming. The owners of the property were gracious and accommodating, much like their home. We look forward to returning to MacAllen House soon, and in the meantime, we will enjoy happy memories of our September stay!
