Seattle House Rental Photos and Description
House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath (Sleeps 4)

You couldn't ask for a more convenient location! Our home is nestled in a quiet neighborhood at the north end of beautiful West Seattle. Walk 1/2-block up the street for a spectacular panoramic view of the moon over Elliot Bay, the Space Needle, and the downtown skyline.

Our location offers quick access to Safeco Field for Mariner's baseball!

This 1920's home is a classic gem. Two bedrooms, one with a queen bed and the other with two twin beds, allow Luna Park Lower to sleep up to four guests. There is a spacious living room which features a fireplace and soaring coved ceilings. A fully equipped kitchen with breakfast nook, dining room, and full bathroom complete the space. Towels and linens are provided, as well as basic kitchen gear, coffee, and tea, wireless high-speed internet, and cable tv. A portable crib is available upon request. Luna Park Lower is pet-friendly; your group may include one dog with a one-time fee.

Luna Park Lower occupies the main floor of this shared house. The second floor, Luna Park Upper, is a completely separate vacation rental with its own entrance. There is a washer and dryer available in the basement that you may use during your stay, and a charcoal grill in the yard during summer months. The yard and basement are shared by all guests. We are happy to rent both floors together for larger groups (up to 7 guests), inquire for pricing.

Luna Park Lower is located just 10 minutes from downtown Seattle. You will be just a few blocks away from the start of Harbor Ave, which is perfect for jogging, walking, biking and rollerblading to Alki Beach (Seattle's premiere beach). There is also a convenient water taxi (walk on ferry) to take you from the beach to downtown Seattle. The location also features easy bus access to downtown.

Within a few blocks of our house you will find a nice variety of restaurants and cafe/diners such as Luna Park Cafe, one of the best breakfast diners in Seattle. The Skylark features pub fare and live music on the weekends as does The Bridge, all within walking distance from our house. And you are a short drive to Alki Beach where you'll find a myriad of fine and casual dining choices.

This is the perfect jumping-off point for fantastic sightseeing, museums, the Pike Place Market, the Seattle Center (which houses the Pacific Science Center, Experience Music Project and Space Needle) Aquarium, Zoo, fine restaurants, ferries, and all of the hiking, skiing, and outdoor adventure that our surrounding mountains have to offer.

Having both owned houses before we married in February of 2009, we decided to try the vacation rental business rather than sell either. Our first guests were Laura's family, in town for the wedding. Since then, with Joe's work as an entertainer and our joint project of raising our two sons, we are plenty busy! However, we take pride in putting our visitors first and have really enjoyed meeting our guests and sharing the city we love with them.

Laura and Joe Ross purchased this house in 2008

Summer 2010, Great experience!!!

I rented this house for a week in July while we were looking at colleges for my twin sons. I chose this property over others listed here because of the price (which is a great value, especially when we considered what it would cost for 8 people in a hotel for a week) so I really wasn't concerned about any of the amenities or the size of the property. I figured as long as the home was in a nice, safe area that was good enough for me. Boy was I pleasently surprised!!! First of all the house is beautiful, full of character and charm and it is MUCH larger than it looks in the pictures! With spacious bedrooms that easily fit 4 teenagers and two nice sized bedrooms on the first floor. All the rooms were big enough to accomodate our large group comfortably and the bonus was the big basement with its own shower! We could send the kids down there when we wanted quiet and have the boys shower down there so they didn't hog the bathroom. It was great! There was a lovely backyard which my two youngest loved with an awesome view of the mountain. Loved it!! The area is great and after seeing all of seattle we prefered it to anywhere else. It is quiet, near everything you could want including an easy drive to the Water Taxi and the beaches. It is also a short walk to the busstop if you prefer and we used both means of transportation to get around. It was a piece of cake, even with 5 kids in tow. Laura and Joe are very nice people, and came to introduce themselves and offer any help after we arrived. Joe was helpful with a question I had to cal him with about some directions and Laura was very kind and returned my security deposit the same day we left the property which was great! All in all it was an awesome stay and I cannot wait to go back!

Moonlight Guest House

We had such a wonderful time at the Moonlight Guest House. There were 7 of us staying here for our son's wedding. It couldn't have been more perfect. The location was fantastic since our son's wedding was in West Seattle. The house was very clean and so comfortable (including the beds). After the wedding both families converged here and enjoyed the house and yard (yes, even the weather cooperated). We will defnitely stay here again when the opportunity arises. Thank you to the Ross family for a very enjoyable and unforgetable weekend.

Lots of Room(s), Close In to the City

The Moonlight Guest House was perfect for our family of four plus a friend. Even though the location is very convenient to the heart of the city, it's in a very quiet and friendly neighborhood. The West Seattle community nightlife on California Ave is close by, and the Harbor Ave views of the city can't be beat. Take the Water Taxi to the Seattle waterfront without dealing with the downtown traffic. We also spent a lot of time at the large dining room table talking and playing games. When we were hungry late at night, the nearby Metropolitan Market is a gourmet delight and is open 24/7. And the owners, Joe and Laura, couldn't be more accommodating. Highly recommended!

AWESOME HOUSE! We were looking for a place where my husband &I & two young children, his mother, sister & brother-in-law could come together after a death in the family. This house was PERFECT! Because of the age of the house and reasonable price, I was a bit nervous to see what we would find when we opened the door. WE LOVED IT! The kids (and adults) ran through the house investigating every little hidden space. The house was immaculate, comfortable, had everything we needed including extra blankets, towels, shampoo, soap, an iron, even extra toothbrushes. We'll never stay in a hotel again when visiting family in West Seattle. Thank you Ross Family for your wonderful hospitality!

Our Thanksgiving spent here was great! A hotel never would have worked so we decided to give a weekend house rental a try. We worried about the size, which wasn’t a problem even though we had 3+ family households. Our two sons and their families made for a full house. But we cooked the turkey with all the trimmings and felt very comfortable. Our most difficult challenge was Seattle’s recycle program which became a laugh when it came to tossing something- “ok-foodwaste? or garbage?” So funny at times. We loved our experience there, easy to find and very close to downtown and the ferry terminals to the islands. We hope to do it again. Thanks Laura and Joe!

This place was perfect for the 5 of us. We are a family of gals who need privacy 'cause on occasion we have a guy around - and this place had a perfect layout for all of us to have that privacy. The home contained all that we needed and more and the location was really very good and very convenient to everything we wanted to do (Mariners game, downtown activities, etc)...We appreciate the accuracy of the website information and the ease of which to access the home. The owner's communcation was perfect and other than Seattle having so much to offer - meaning we were not "home" much so we did not get to explore the neighbourhood - we look forward to returning and doing just that, especially part of the Alki beach area which is very close. Thanks Laura and Joe.

A casual,comfortable home in a quiet and safe neighborhood for my 4 teenagers, my husband and myself to relax, work on our lap tops, watch cable TV, eat from the frig, or take a 6 minute walk to a Starbucs. Easy access to the bus line where my children took it to the University District to meet up with us at the Univ of Washington. Served our needs with a working washer and dryer,and even a basement cloths line. Plenty of room and beds. Mr. and Mrs. Ross responded quickly and informatively to our e-mails. We really enjoyed BEAUTIFUL Seattle. Sincerely, The Zomback's

We needed a space for family members to be together to support an adult son having cancer surgery at Swedish. The house was great - we had separate spaces if we wanted and great gathering places. Our grandsons could squeal and laugh and go for walks and that was wonderful! And Joe and Laura were like extended family in their willingness to make a stressful time as comfortable as possible. Thanks Joe & Laura!

We rented this home for our family that were coming in from out of town for our wedding. The location and size were perfect for our needs and the price was unbeatable! There was plenty of room for everyone to have their space and the back yard offered a beautiful area to sit and visit. Laura and Joe were wonderful, accomodating, easy to contact and work with,we couldn't have asked for a nicer couple. If you are looking for a nice, quiet, centrally located home away from home, this is the place. The neighbors are nice, the area is beautiful and everything is so close by. I would highly recommend this home, you will not be disappointed. Thank you Laura and Joe, it was definitely a pleasure!
