About Gina

Of the places I have lived, this is by far the most facinating and enjoyable! The waterfront is very active, local sights and great restaurants are within walking distance. A quick drive and you are in the heart of Seattle visiting Pike Place Market. I think you will find this is the perfect location for your Seattle vacation.

Gina purchased this house in 2008

What makes this house unique

I am no scientist, but I have read that in environments with salt tinged sea air (like this Waterfront) an abundance of negative ions(electrically charged atoms) are found, which increases the brains seratonin levels, thereby giving an overall feeling of well being and energy! That's pretty great.

A Perfect Seattle Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

The home is in excellent condition, and is particularly well stocked. Views were exceptional, and the location provides convenient access to Seattle proper. We will return.

Excellent accomodation

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 adults stayed here for 4 nights to do the Seattle-tourist thing. The location is lovely, the pictures on the site accurately depict the home and views. The home is well-maintained. The major Seattle sites are 10 minutes away by car (use your phone GPS if you can). We would stay again anytime.

Gorgeous view

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous girls weekend at this great home. Lovely, well maintained, clean home with fabulous views. We spent houts watching the birds, sea lions and ships go through the locks on the porch. Only issue was the noisy trains that do run all night long, but we would still come back to this great location.

relaxing visit to Seattle

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful visit to Seattle, the weather was gorgeous and we enjoyed morning walks to the locks and botanical gardens. The house had everything we needed. We started playing a game, stump the house, but we never could win EVERYTHING was there. It was nice that there were toys, a booster seat and changing table as we were entertaining an 18 month old boy (or he was entertaining us). As mentioned by all the reviewers the views, boats and train watching was a highlight.

The only thing to mention is the stairs, I was with my parents 84 and 82 and they could manage just fine if they were quite careful. Of course once you are inside you do not want to leave. But we did do some local exploring and the little village of Magnolia is charming.

We loved it there and hated to leave. Make sure to visit the Fishermans Terminal (about 1.5 miles away)... We had the freshest, most delicious salmon anyone (including the Seattle residents) had ever tasted. ENJOY

Owner's Response: I have never heard of 'stump the house' but I'm pleased that the test was passed. I am happy that you enjoyed your stay, visit to Seattle and time with your family. Thank you for your very fun review!

A little slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I used to live in Bellevue and came back for a wedding. We decided to stay a few extra days as we had never really spent much time around the locks, Ballard, or Lake Union. Once we arrived, we knew we had picked out something special here. The views are amazing and it was so much fun watching the boat traffic, along with the numerous bridge lifts when trains weren't present. We saw a couple seals, lots of snow geese, ducks, and a blue heron.

The kitchen was spacious and has a dining area. The family room was light and bright and featured many windows. The master bedroom has a large closet and very comfy bed. The utility room and bathroom were adjacent. We would highly recommend this home as a base and plan on staying here again in the future.
