About Lynn Van Vactor

We live, work and travel in the Pacific NW and Alaska. We often travel for work and appreciate a comfortable home to stay in. Our home respresents what we love. When we travel internationally we stay in vacation homes and get to know the community. Its a great way to see the world. Quiet, private, peaceful...No noise from hotel hallway, entertain clients or guests in a fine atmosphere!

Why Lynn Van Vactor chose Magnolia

We chose Magnolia due to its wonderful views and great family atmopshere. We enjoy the community, shops, bistros...views. We love that its so close (5 minutes from the office downtown) a very inviting community within walking distance and close to bus transportation downtown.

What makes this house unique

City Skyline views within walking distance, Panoramic Puget Sound Views, Olympic Mountains and Eliot Bay from the property. A pair of Eagles perched high on the tree located on the bluff almost every morning, they have been there for years! You can watch them from bed or the breakfast nook, hear them call around 6am-7am, and then around 8 am they go about their day.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hope you got my message after I arrived in Portland......didn't have time in Seattle to respond.



We ALL loved your beautiful home and it's location with the fabulous views and convenience to our younger son & his family who live on the upper section of Thorndyke. Everyone walked back and forth quite often. We sat out in your back yard a lot since the weather was perfect for that. Nice grill!



Plus the beds were super comfortable. Great situation as our older son & his wife could have the basement suite. They were impressed!



My 2 grandsons really enjoyed playing hide & seek in your house as they remembered from the last time how many good places to stay concealed!



The flowers and bushes in your neighborhood were spectacular this trip. So appreciated after our long hard winter.



Thanks again and we would love to stay there again next visit! So far our favorite vacation rental in Magnolia.



Best wishes,

Diane

More than Meets the Eye!

  • 5 of 5
The pictures in the listing just don't do this property justice! It is impeccably maintained, and it felt as if I had been living there for years as soon as I walked in the front door. The views from the kitchen and master bedroom are incredible and I lingered over breakfast many times just soaking in the view. I was there with a group of 4 other adults and we found the accommodations more than enough for our group. The neighborhood was great- we had pastries one morning from Finn's bakery (amazing) and it was less than 4 minutes by car to get to the grocery store to pick up some essentials for the weekend.

Lynn, the property owner, was great to work with as well. Being a first-timer in Seattle I had questions on hiking and other outdoor activities, where to go for dinner, etc. Lynn was quick to respond and gave extremely helpful information and recommendations. She even reached out to a friend of hers for additional thoughts on the best day hike to take from the house.

I'm not sure when I'll make it back to Seattle, but I know that whenever I am back, I'll know exactly where it is I want to stay!!

Wonderful stay at SeaEscape

  • 5 of 5
SeaEscape is an immaculate, well maintained home, even more charming than the photos. It is equipped with everything imaginable to prepare a family dinner or outdoor barbeque. Very comfortable furniture and beds. The location is lovely and peaceful. It's within a short two-block walk to the metro bus to take you to Seattle Center, Olympic Sculpture Park, Belltown, and Pike Place Market, with easy transfers to the bus to the Waterfront, Great Wheel, ferry terminal, Pioneer Square, etc. It even has a fireplace for those cold rainy Seattle days. The Owner and Caretaker provided contact information just in case we needed assistance, but everything worked perfectly and we did not need to call them. I would give it 10 stars if I could. We hope to return for future vacations.

A fabulous week

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week at the beginning of August in "Sea Espace". The house is located in Magnolia a beautiful residential suburb of Seattle. Clean, spacious,well equiped and decorated this house is close to the center of Magnolia where you can walk to shops and restaurants. The center of Seattle (Pike Market) is only at a10 minutes drive so it is a good depart point to discover the Seattle Area. There is a little park where we saw our first "american" eagle.
You can trust the pictures shown, i recommend "Sea Espace" and hope to come back.

Charming Comfortable Clean Convenient

  • 5 of 5
We loved our time at Sea Escape. The house was clean, comfortable, well decorated, and simply charming. The neighborhood is absolutely beautiful and peaceful. Do!wntown is just minutes away. We enjoyed the views - can't wait to come back! We were already looking at returning in November but already booked. :(
We brought my 85 year-old mom, she loved the house, she was able to stay upstairs and move around comfortably.
Thanks! Be back soon, Doreen

Priorities Met!!

  • 4 of 5
When deciding on a Seattle rental, the most important thing on my checklist was to find a home that allowed for opportunities to walk around a safe neighborhood, as well as be within walking distance to local shops and restaurants. This rental met this priority with flying colors! When time allowed, our party of 4 enjoyed our relaxing strolls through the neighborhood and taking in the beautiful landscapes of individual homes. (Not to mention the water view) In the mornings we often walked into the village for breakfast or for coffee.
The home is also relatively close to the major Seattle sites. As a yearly visitor to Seattle, I have begun using the "Uber" app (similar to a taxi service but much better and cheaper) to get me to all those sites without the hassle of parking fees and traffic. I highly recommend it! I used it numerous times while visiting.
It is also worth noting that any of my questions in regards to the rental were answered in a timely manner and handled professionally.
The highest recommendation I could give is to say that I would return, and that is just what I plan on doing for 2015!

The Magnolia Neighborhood is located on a peninsula west of Queen Anne Hill‚ south of the Ballard Locks and Fishermen's Terminal‚ and only minutes from downtown Seattle‚ Magnolia with its natural boundaries has a special feeling of being an island, although it is actually a peninsula. Accessible by three bridges‚ Magnolia is a special place to live and visit‚ it is close to the city but has a small town feel. Beautiful View Homes, nature trails, biking trails and sidewalks along the bluff provide for great walking and hiking.

The Magnolia neighborhood of Seattle has a remarkable and unique business district. The center is known as the “village” and is home to some of Seattle’s top award winning restaurants and coffee shops‚ well known specialty shops and professional services. The outer rim of this unique island like neighborhood is home to marine business and borders the Fisherman’s Terminal which homes docks for the fishing industry and cruise ship Industry.

Sea Escape of Seattle is located on the south end of Magnolia overlooking Elliot Bay and West Seattle.
