SERENE WOODLAND GETAWAY IN THE CITY

Seattle House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps (6-8)

Nestled on a quiet lane, deep in the West Seattle greenbelt, this grand old house is only a seven minute drive from downtown and walking distance to shopping, restaurants and services. Over recent years, this 1915 home has been lovingly updated while maintaining its homey “lived-in” feel. With three bedrooms, two full baths, living room, formal dining room, gourmet kitchen, breakfast nook, reading room, knotty pine paneled study, and game-room, there is enough space to get lost in, yet feel comfortably wrapped in its cozy warmth. You’ll love how it rambles, offering views onto the surrounding forest and beautifully landscaped grounds, highlighted by a large babbling waterfall into a goldfish pond filled with exotic water-plants. Terraced into the hillside are a number of “quiet places” and patios to sit and enjoy a moment of solitude or gather for conversation.

French doors off the kitchen open onto a large deck with seating and gas grill. Another set of doors off the rear breakfast nook opens onto the backyard patio garden, letting the outside in, allowing full enjoyment of summer in Seattle or views for contemplation on a rainy day.

Guestbook comments from the owner
This place is very comfortable for large groups and we loved the serene back yard. We would love to stay here again if we make it back to this city.

We love the richness of our lives and it is reflected in our family values and independent ideas. Max is a native of Seattle while I am from San Francisco but came to Seattle twenty five years ago, where the two of us met and joined forces to raise a wonderful extended family of four children. Max is an artist and master lease- holder of two buildings in historic Pioneer Square while I am a committed corporate director. With the children grown and three beautiful granddaughters to enjoy on weekends, we decided to “simplify” our lives so we could pursue other pursuits - like a tin mine in Congo! Never a dull moment! We look forward to meeting you.

Max or Janelle purchased this house in 2000

We purchased this property because of its serene and private qualities and its potential to one day reflect our true lifestyle and character. After many years of loving toil, today it is everything we dreamed of and more. Its close, convenient proximity to downtown, while hidden in the trees overlooking Elliott Bay, this in-city retreat exudes the true ambiance of Seattle. There isn’t a friend or stranger who has stayed here, who doesn’t feel relaxed and rejuvenated by its warmth and natural style.

After a long day of upscale shopping, boating, taking in the many Seattle attractions, or attending a professional sports event, you can return to the serenity of your private oasis. Cook dinner in your gourmet kitchen and dine on the patio or formal dining room. Enjoy the lights of the city skyline as you reflect on the day from the cozy sitting porch before retiring for the night to the sound of your own waterfall. Wrap yourself in the morning sights and sounds of the birds and outdoor wildlife alongside the natural-style water feature before you start your day all over again. There is a lot of space for everyone including a reading room, a game room and a large living room with stone fireplace for those rainy Seattle nights.

WEDDING RESIDENCE

  • 5 of 5
We needed a large home for a place my extended family to stay that came to Seattle for a wedding. The house was clean and had all the amenities a family would need. The owners were courteous and answered all questions in a timely manner. The backyard was beautiful and made a great addition to the home. It was also ideal to get to the other parts of the city. I would recommend this residence for anyone needing a place to stay in Seattle.

A WONDERFUL RETREAT IN WEST SEATTLE

  • 4 of 5
This is a grand old house with lots of space both inside and out. We thoroughly enjoyed the sleeping porch, living room, kitchen, and outdoor space. If you have a group that wants to spread out and simply enjoy being in the area, this is a great deal.
We didn't use all the dining areas because we didn't need to, but a larger group would find them quite convenient. It would be a great place for a longer stay because of the amount of space, a study and dedicated dining area, etc. The kitchen was well finished with great appliances and cookery, but beware that it doesn't have any basic foodstuffs other than salt and sugar. If you want to cook with it, bring it!
Overall, a delightful stay, and we hope to return on future visits to the area.

GREAT FAMILY VACATION HOME

  • 4 of 5
Our family spent Christmas in Seattle and the property was great. The house is large, with ample room for 6 adults. We cooked dinner Xmas Eve and Xmas in the well equipped kitchen. They provided plenty of extras, including a large gas range, espresso maker, special glassware (martini, flutes...). The dining room table is large enough for a holiday dinner. The living room sectional was great for opening presents and watching TV.

Max was very responsive when we were concerned about heat in the upstairs and added a thermostat to one of the bedrooms. The house is drafty, but there are portable heaters in the colder rooms.

Janelle and Max were extremely flexible with arrival and departure times. They were away for our stay, but I do not think we would have known if they were on site.

The house is a quick drive to downtown and close to shopping and restaurants in West Seattle. We walked to town even though we had a car. We also walked down to the beach to see a beautiful sunset and view of the city.

I highly recommend this property as a great family vacation home. You can tell they take pride in their home with all the extra touches you rarely find in rental properties. I would love to return when the weather is warmer to enjoy the beautiful outdoors.

I am not giving it 5 stars due to very minor issues. I would like to rate this as 4 1/2 stars but am not able to add a 1/2 star.

Thank you for sharing your home with us!

PERFECT HOME AWAY FROM HOME. BAKER FAMILY

  • 5 of 5
spacious, quiet, yet close to anything you need.
our 3 year old granddaughter loved the bunk bed, stuffed elephant, hiding places, and enjoyed her time feeding the fish in the pond.

the girls planned the wedding details around the kitchen bar area, while the guys watched the hdtv. we cooked and served a large reception dinner in the modern kitchen, loved the large fridge, and grill.
max and janelle live in the basement, and they are helpful and courteous when asked-otherwise they respect your privacy.
you have to do a breakfast at the luna park cafe, a short walk down to the bottom of the hill. drive the two miles to take the water taxi to downtown, avoiding traffic and parking problems. take the bus tour-it is worth it.
this was our first trip to seattle, and this house provided us a sanctuary at the end of the day.
the house is decorated beautifully, clean, secure, private. i would recommend this house.

CAROLINA GIRLS

  • 4 of 5
A group of 6 women rented this house for a long weekend getaway. It was perfect for us.

There was plenty of room, lots of beds & a large dining room table for us to gather around. The living area had plenty of seating for all of us & the kitchen was arranged so that we could all move around in it at the same time. It was quiet but close enough to the airport and tourist areas downtown and the water taxi.

Looked just like the photos and was very clean. The owners were very helpful but made themselves scarce.

I would recommend a nearby restaurant; The Blackboard Bistro and a French bakery - Bakery Nouveau.

Would recommend this property.
