About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

Soundview is a self-contained, absolutely private guest cottage with a spectacular view. With king sized bed, complete kitchen, dining area, living room with stereo, WiFi, DVD player, iPod dock with CD player, cable TV, washer and dryer, and an outdoor deck and private hot tub overlooking Puget Sound, you will be assured of a pleasant and convenient visit--just like a second home right here in Seattle.

Located just minutes from Seatac International Airport, downtown Seattle and Highline Hospital, Soundview is among the nearest vacation rentals to the airport - yet it is totally quiet and peaceful. A wide array of breakfast foods is provided for you to prepare as you wish, any time you wish. The kitchen is stocked with such items as eggs, cereal, milk, pancake mix, frozen individual quiches, muffins, fruit, juice, and gourmet coffee, for when you want to create your own morning feast.

Annie, your innkeeper, wants you to enjoy everything Seattle and the surrounding areas have to offer. Take in the drama of Mount Rainier, cruise the harbor in Elliott Bay for great views of the city and water wildlife, rent a kayak, visit some world class museums, enjoy some of the best theater and music on the west coast, or cheer on your favorites at one of the local sporting venues. If you have any special interests, let Annie know - she's glad to help you make the most of your visit here at the Soundview!

About Annie Phillips

Annie never considered becoming an innkeeper before she found Soundview in 2005. It 'came with the territory' and she thought she'd honor the existing reservations to see how she liked it. Yes! It's a fit.

Soundview is a separate guest house about 40 feet away from her own home. Both have the same spectacular view of mountains, islands and Puget Sound. In this quiet, peaceful setting, eagles glide through the tall trees and sailboats and cargo ships parade through the channel below.

Annie Phillips purchased this cottage in 2005

What makes this cottage unique

Soundview can be romantic, inspiring, or restorative. It's a home away from home for travelers, honeymooners, birthday or anniversary celebrants, and parents coming to meet the new bride or baby. Soak in the private hot tub, laze in the famously comfy kingsize bed, cook a feast in the complete kitchen or visit one of several excellent local restaurants. It's convenient to the airport and to downtown Seattle - yet amazingly quiet and intimate.

Cozy get away

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to stay for a cozy escape from the world. The kitchen was stocked with healthy delicious foods. Loved the setup, bed was very comfortable! Jacuzzi was grest way to start and end the cold day looking over the remarkable view. Clean place to feel at home and a scrabble game with a board that spins to top it off lol Annie is very accommodating making sure we make ourselves at home and even offered any rides. Loved it plan to come back and recommend to anyone looking for a nice relaxing get away.

Breathtaking views and super private

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our family vacation at Soundview Cottage. Annie was very accommodating and had everything one could possible need or wish for in a vacation get-away. A wonderful selection of fresh fruits and veggies along with breakfast items were provided, along with all the accompaniments. The cottage is clean, comfortable, and we didn't want to leave! We will definitely book Soundview next time we are in the Seattle area.

Comfortable, peaceful location, good views.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Annie's cottage. It is a good size with all of the amenities you could need. Annie provided a very generous assortments of foods - more than enough for breakfast in the fridge, an enormous bowl of fruit which was refilled and goods in the cupboards. There are also organic grocery and wine stores close by.

It was a good base for Mount Rainier and Annie's recommendation to go to the Sunrise visitor centre was right. We enjoyed a wonderful 4 hour hike up to a lookout and had brilliant views of Mount Rainier and its glaciers.

I highly recommend this place and would definitely stay again.

This home made our vacation perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Annie's cottage had everything she promised; we've been raving about it since we got home. The property was beautiful with all the flowers and surrounding nature. The cottage was clean, everything worked, and it felt like home. The outside deck was spacious and we spent a decent amount of time out there looking at the beautiful view. We also loved the hot tub and used it to watch the sunrise as well as soaking after a long day of walking.

The cottage was an easy distance from Seattle and the local neighborhood was nice and quiet, with shopping nearby.

Annie was a perfect hostess and made our stay special.

We would highly recommend this place to anyone!
