Overview

Wallingford House Rental Photos and Description

King bedroom PLUS queen pull out couch, fully equipped kitchen! Sleeps up to 4

Sleeps 4! YOU CAN BOOK ONLINE WITH YOUR CREDIT CARD - you can book your stay via your credit card on this VRBO site! Why stay at a hotel when you can rent a cozy house for less than most hotel rooms?

Our rental home is located on Aurora Ave N (Rt 99!) between 46th Ave N and 47th Ave N. We are walking distance to the Woodland Park Zoo and are located in Fremont.

This is the lower area of a house and is 1 bedroom with a King bed, 1 bathroom, living room (has pull out Queen size sleeper couch), kitchen (seats 4), backyard & free parking (rates below). Our home is located in the Fremont neighborhood in Seattle and is located on one of the two main roads in Seattle - Route 99.

Living Room: flat screen TV, Cable TV, pull-out queen couch-bed, coffee table

Bedroom: small bath - king bed, closet

Bathroom: 1 tub/shower bathroom with toilet and sink

Kitchen: Equipped for self-catering with fridge, oven/stove, microwave, dish washer and utensils/cooking pans, dishes, etc and 4 person round table with 4 chairs

Parking: home has driveway and there is easy/close/free parking on both 46th Ave N and 47th Ave N.

LIVING AREA IS ABOUT 500SQFT. EXCELLENT FOR A COUPLE OR A COUPLE AND CHILD. BUT SLEEPS UP TO 4 PEOPLE!

The neighborhood of Fremont district boasts of over 50 eateries: 17 bakeries and cafes, and 17 listed bars and pubs! Whether it's The Flying Apron, a gluten-free bakery), or Simply Desserts (possibly the best cake shop in the world!), or an authentic pizzeria at Via Tribunali, you'll find it's all in your neighborhood. So is the Puget Consumer Co-op, a wonderful natural foods grocery that is amply stocked with everything from wine to ice-cream.

And then there is the shopping: bookstores, boutiques galore, music and flower shops, and the farmers market. The Burke Gilman Trail (42 miles in unbroken length!), wonderful for biking or walking, is a short walk away and borders the scenic water-way between Lake Union and the Puget Sound. This provides a wonderful in-city spot for picnicking, outside reading, or people and boat watching. In addition, minutes from your door is the famous Fremont Troll, the quaint Fremont Public Library. And the Nectar Lounge is close by, as one of the many nightlife spots

If you want to explore outside of Fremont, just step outside and a bus stop will take you where you need to go

About Gea

Gea is originally from Ohio and moved to Seattle in 2004. This is Gea's only rental property in Seattle. Gea lives just outside of the city proper with her two cats, four chickens and pretty darn big organic garden.

Gea purchased this house in 2011

Why Gea chose Wallingford

Location, location, location!

What makes this house unique

Many of the lovely families that stay with us email us (after their stay) with great things to say! - especially because of the location (only 5 blocks from the Seattle Zoo) and food across the street/coffee shops only 5 blocks West of the house (all walking distance). The home is on Aurora Ave N - which is a main road in Seattle (and one of the perks of the location). This is an urban environment, not a rural location, however, so keep that in mind! Our home is 1.5 miles from Pike Place Market (and downtown Seattle). The home also has free private driveway parking and double pane windows. The studio area of the home - which is 450sqft - has been fully remodeled with brand new floors, paint - and all new furniture (in January of 2013). All of our furniture is Crate and Barrel furniture; we focus on 'clean, simple, and comfortable' for the feel of our home. We have opted toward a contemporary (rather than thrift store decorated) decorating style.

We had a nice stay at this rental. It was centrally located and easy to access. The only issue we had was the wifi would not connect. A perfect place for three. Close to QFC, Safeway and whole foods. Plenty of kitchen stuff for cooking.

Good

  • 4 of 5
for the price it offered, there is nothing to complain about, probably the only thing is parking is little tricky. Have to back enter the drive way on a busy road, otherwise, difficult to back out.

Thank you for a nice stay

  • 5 of 5
Rented this home for a short stay for my moms 90th birthday. Close to a lot of attractions and easy to get around - we just used a ride-share for all of our comings and goings. Clean and had everything we needed. Had no problems, only good things to say about this place. Thank you

Adequate but not fantastic

  • 3 of 5
There were some things we liked: Convenience to bus stop, clean, night lights, grab bar in bathroom. Enough towels, kitchen supplies (didn't find a corkscrew, though), outlets, apparently safe neighborhood.

And some that weren't so positive:
*Posted list of rules (1)no shoes in house-would have liked to know this so we would have brought slippers (2)fine of $150 if keys not returned--although we had no keys, just a keypad, so we wondered if the other items on the list were up to date
*Wi-Fi kept requiring that we log in again, annoying
*No doorknob on bedroom door

And some things that many vacation rentals provide, and this one did not:
*Map showing where "walkable" resources are located, things like restaurants, convenience stores, Laundromat
*How-to-do list--we never did figure out the thermostat, didn't call owner because we could live with the temperature as set

My second time here

  • 5 of 5
This is my second time staying at the unit. This is a great place for a single person, a couple's weekend vacation or a couple and small child. Very affordable and though not a large unit, it is big enough. My purpose of here on work suits this unit as it has everything you need to be comfortable. I also appreciate that the kitchen is fully stocked and that I am able to make all of my food at the unit with ease rather than having to get take-out each day - which is the normal situation when I end up staying in hotels. The owner is also doing some interesting things, which there is information about in the unit - the rain garden and the cistern (to purify and conserve rainwater) within the backyard. The home also has solar panels. I will be back again if the unit is available on my next work trip into Seattle.

Seattle unit

  • 3 of 5
We found the accomations comfortable and generally spacious. The well equipped kitchen was nice (we couldn't find a cork screw but other than that it had everything we needed). We also like the simple, modern decor.

The bathroom is quite small and we would have liked better lighting as this was the only mirror in the suite ( a full length mirror in the bedroom would have been nice :)

The wifii kept dropping us so we had to keep signing in which was a slight glitch for our enjoyment.

The house is off a main,busy (yes kind of noisy) street and you need to either back up into a relatively steep drive to park or back out unto the busy street- just FYI.

If you want to explore outside of Fremont, a short walk takes you to bus stops that will easily connect you to downtown and to anywhere else you may need to go in the Seattle area.

Unless walking is a problem, your car can stay parked; all of the above is with-in EASY walking distance.

Our home is ON Aurora Ave N, which is Route 99. This is one of the two main roads in Seattle.
