Seattle House Rental Photos and Description
House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-6)
My guest home is set up as a private, main floor unit, 2 bedrooms and 2 baths, private backyard and carport. The unit itself is about 1000 SF, plus guests get exclusive use of the backyard with a nice hot tub (children under 5 not allowed in hot tub), propane BBQ and romantic fire table. I now have an AC unit for the entire upstairs, the home stays nice and cool even on the hottest days. Float planes pass by daily, salmon fight their way up the Ballard Locks fish ladder nearby, reasonably priced restaurants that are amazing all around. The zoo is 5 blocks away, a great family beach a couple of miles, easy back road to downtown and the ferries. It is a quiet, low-density neighborhood, very safe, with easy access to bus routes.
Wine tasting room now 5 blocks from the house (Domanico Cellars). Sweeping views of Ballard and the Olympics, great sunset and evening views....the suns sets in the perfect location for viewing from the living room during the spring and fall. Watch the float planes fly towards the coast at 8:05 every morning. 20 minute walk to the Ballard and Fremont districts. Easy off-street parking, but even on the street there is plenty of parking. There is a TV with expanded cable in each bedroom and the living room, all with DVD. Perfect for a small family or friends looking to explore Seattle's famous neighborhood coffee shops. 2 bedrooms with a queen bed in each room, upstairs bathroom has a full bath tub with old-style deep tub and shower, second bathroom downstairs has a large shower and also is the laundry room. Full size, comfortable futon in the living room area, for the 5th or 6th guests. Fully equipped kitchen, tastefully decorated throughout. The bedrooms have comfortable beds, one a little firmer with a memory foam topper, the other on the softer side with a pillow-top type mattress. The backyard is set up as a private oasis, hot tub with a tent canopy for privacy, and an outdoor hot shower for before and after you get in the tub. There is a propane fire pit and table also. Guests have exclusive use of the backyard and entire main floor and downstairs bathroom. It is a street level unit, easy access for people with limited mobility. The home is on a steep street, although there are bus stops nearby it can be difficult for people with mobility issues, renting a car is probably better if that is the case. The home is completely private, bird baths and feeders everywhere, hummingbirds and a variety of song birds are regular visitors.

About Tom Dooley
I have owned the home since 2003, and I live in a unit with separate entrance below. Guests have the entire upstairs unit to themselves and downstairs bathroom. The entire backyard is for guests only as well. In addition to the home, I also a Fair-Trade company selling items from Ghana. You will see many items from my Ghana company in the home. I have lived in Seattle for close to 20 years, and have settled into this area, which I really love. I have a nice catalog put together of my favorite restaurants, grocery stores, kayak rental places, and everything else you can think of.
Tom Dooley purchased this house in 2003
Why Tom Dooley chose Seattle
This home is located in my favorite area of Seattle. It has great views, is walking distance to Fremont, Ballard and the Woodland Park Zoo which are great places to visit. It is just a very nice neighborhood to live in.
What makes this house unique
The home is set up to feel like you are on vacation. The canopy and hot tub space in the backyard is surrounded by a well-manicured garden, it feels like you are in nature but you are in the middle of the city. The home is all about convenience and relaxation.
Guestbook comments from the owner
From my guestbook: Tom, Thank you so much for the most amazing stay! The added touches you threw in really made our stay very memorable. When we walked in and say organic coffee, cheese, cream, eggs and fruit, I knew this was a perfect match! It's like you knew me. (-: Also thanks you for the baby friendliness (pack n play, high chair, dishes). That made our trip so easy! We loved spending the evenings in your backyard. The little oasis was awesome after the baby crashed. I will definitely be recommending this place to anyone coming to Seattle and will hopefully have the pleasure of staying here again. Cheers!
