We are a family who live and teach abroad. We love coming home to the Lake each summer to enjoy family and the area.
Irene purchased this House in 2014
Why Irene chose Seahurst
This property is near the airport, which we use alot. We also spend most of our time in Seattle, at the beaches, and we are enjoying our local businesses just got recognized in an article by the NY Times-
What makes this House unique
This bungalow/cabin is an original Lake Burien 1930 of the first on the Lake. It was once used as a fishermen's cabin. Although it is updated to reflect a cozy atmosphere for today's traveler, it still holds some original features from yesteryear.

Great location and lake view
Great location. Close to downtown Burien and to Seattle. Loved the lake front location and waking up to that view each day. No cable TV, just internet TV, so we had to use alternatives (Phones, local restaurant) to watch playoff hockey’s games during our stay.
Beds were comfortable and we enjoyed our stay.
Wonderful lakeside getaway!
The house was great with plenty of room and amazing view! It was clean and had plenty of towels and bedding. The only thing we couldn't find were coffee filters but we improvised with a paper towel :) This place was great for my coworkers and I while we were at a conference in Seattle. Far enough away to not be in the mess of Seattle but close enough for a decent priced Uber to downtown. I would recommend this place for anyone needing to be close to the city with the comforts of a little quiet getaway!
Like being home, but on a lake!
This place was the perfect home away from home. We were out of our house for a while due to some damage, and it was such a breath of fresh air to get to stay here- great location, everything we needed to just go in living, and an absolutely beautiful lake to wake up to. Previous comments about heating and lack of necessary items to use in the house were either way off base, or Irene addressed every singe comment and made this place perfect. My pup was happy here too- fenced yard! And the lake!!! We’re for sure coming back in the summer just to experience a summer day at Lake Burien.
Wonderful location...home is rustic and needs some love
Such a rare find in the Seahurst area for BnB so to that end I would say, it was a great location. The lake is beautiful and even in December it was nice enough to play in the yard and enjoy the view. We didn't use it but it has an outdoor area with a fireplace - could be great in the summer.
What we liked:
- the location was perfect (so close to the airport and shopping if needed)
- the lake access was a treat as the weather was mild and we enjoyed playing in the yard
- the house has lots of room to gather and have family time
- nice to have a W/D available (BYO detergent)
What to keep in mind:
- home is rustic at best and needs some TLC
- bring your own towels, bedding to be warm, blow dryer, foil and such, and ANYthing you need to be comfortable (cleaning supplies, detergent, paper towels and so on)
- master bedroom has a double bed rather than a queen so it is a challenge to accommodate two people.
Overall, we enjoyed a nice visit with our family for the holidays but would likely choose another (not many to choose from in the area) home unless something changes with the care of this great location.
This is our first few months getting started, and we appreciate your feedback.
We are so sorry you didn't have what you needed. We have placed many more towels into our home, and there is plenty of bedding, thanks to your suggestion.
There is laundry detergent and dishwasher liquid. We will be placing a queen size bed into the master bedroom for your comfort. Your feedback is important to us, and we will continue to improve based on your help...Thank you!
Great view and spacious common areas
Peaceful setting with lake views in front room. Plenty of common space for family to gather. Home is clean and convenient to Olde Burien. Only suggest more blankets and a hair dryer.
This property we perfect for our family!
The property was beautifully decorated and it's location was ideal due to the proximity to the airport!!!
