Excellent Family Stay!
Joe's place was an incredible option for our family of 5 for a long weekend get-away to Seattle. The house was impeccably kept and well-equipped. All was clean and modern and we loved the set-up. Beds were comfortable and there were lots of pillows, which is important! Upper bathtub was our kids' favorite outlet over the weekend - large, jets, very spa-like. Lots of TLC into this home.
Each of our three children essentially had their own 'quarters' and we loved watching the sunset on the patio after a bbq dinner. We would ABSOLUTELY come back to this home as the neighborhood, the view, the lot, ALL OF IT, was a true home away from home. There were even Seatlle & area resources for our perusal. Great books too!
This is also a great home for kids - there were books, movies, and a 'playground', as my daughter called it - right outside! Lots of space for them to roam.
In hindsight, we would have invited our good family friends who have children as there would have been ample space for another family.
Recommendations: use Google maps to access the home because that will be easier than a paper road map. Once you navigate once, it's pretty intuitive after that. Remember - you're climbing a bit of a hill to get that view! Also, there is no espresso machine in the place, only a traditional coffee maker but excellent espresso over on California Drive.
The fireplaces were a little tricky to figure out. Although it would have been nice to have the gas fireplace on, we didn't need it in the end because the weather was so FANTASTIC - a truly warm Easter weekend.
Hottub was not set up for use, so don't rely on that. Might be a seasonal thing.
Bring cameras -the sunsets are MAGNIFICIENT. Loved sitting out on the deck drinking morning coffee, or evening wine. Was truly relaxing. Thanks Joe - we will definitely be back.
