Best view, best place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed here, so you know we love it. Ron and Marcella are great hosts, and we had every amenity we could ask for. You can just sit on the deck, enjoy Puget Sound, the lovely sound of birds and the sea air (my personal favorite) - and you are close enough to Seattle, Tacoma and points further. I love the place, this wonderful retreat. We took a ferry to Vashon Island (wonderful - eat at the Hardware Store), visited Chihuly Museum in Seattle (fantastic), just really enjoyed being in Burien and the slow pace of life. Don't miss Grand Central Bakery in Burien. Thursday is a great day to be there, too, because there is a Farmer's Market in Downtown Burien. Sea and Sky restores my soul. You want to be here! It's less than 5 miles from West Seattle and less than 5 miles from the airport.

Exceeded Our Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

After viewing the photos of this beautiful apartment, our expectations were pretty high. Having never been to Seattle, we were nervous about staying so far from the city and hoping to avoid renting a car. But this place was so adorable we went for it. Oh my gosh are we glad we did. My husband and teen daughter absolutely loved this home away from home. Ron the owner could not have been more kind or helpful, although we only saw him once upon arrival and that was when he graciously offered a ride into town about 2 miles away, we knew he was available upstairs but I've a feeling Ron makes a point of letting you be while you're on his property. He's there if you need him, but lets you have your privacy which is really nice. We arrived at night but were hungry and planning to walk into town for a bite, it was dark and chilly and we were down the hill near the water in a quaint little neighborhood we'd never been to. Ron insisted upon driving us so he could familiarize us with our new surroundings. He's awesome!! But back to the apartment. The best description I can give is to just imagine your sweet aunt Mary has a quaint home on the water, cozy, comfortable, impeccably clean and stocked with just about everything you need, and she invites you to stay there while she's away. It was so much better than a hotel or even a condo in the city, they honestly don't even compare. After our days spent in the city doing all of the cool things one can do in Seattle, we looked forward to coming home to our "home" on the water in Burien, put on our jammies, make some popcorn, grab a blankie, enjoy the tranquility of being on the water, chat, read or watch a movie. My daughter and I also took full advantage of the claw foot tub. A hot bath on a chilly night in the Pacific Northwest is something every person should experience. Then up early for the most gorgeous view of the water and a fresh pot of coffee as we ease into the day, sipping from our mugs on the deck. It was incredible, truly incredible. I could go on an on but hopefully you get the point. And by the way, we never did rent a car. We ubered everywhere. It was easy and thanks to the great price of our apartment, we didn't mind spending a little dough on transportation. Not having to worry about parking in the city or directions was nice and definitely made for a more relaxing trip. If we ever go back to Seattle, there is no question we'll be staying at Ron's pad again. Thank you for your hospitality Ron!!!

Great view and very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

By all means go in daytime to find this place. At night would be difficult. Owner greeted me. Very nice man.

View is panoramic and stunning. Great facilities for a family getaway or a romantic few days. I would stay again.

Stunning View & Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely time we had while in Seattle. It was our first trip to Washington and our first time to ever use VRBO. We give both home and location five gold stars and hope to be back in the near future. The view from the deck alone is worth renting this home! If we weren't traveling on such a short time frame and needing/wanting to accomplish several things while there, I could have easily never left the house for several days and just soaked in the view of the water and the passing of the boats. Just lovely! We didn't meet Ron's wife, but Ron was an absolute delight and very helpful with any questions we had. On a side note, the drive in to Seattle is very doable. Traffic? Sure. But, depending on where you are coming from, it may not be any worse than what you are already accustomed to. We live in Nashville, TN so to be really honest, it wasn't a whole lot worse than what we experience during our rush hour. If you work your day around the times to avoid the bottle-neck, you'll be fine.

The absolute only thing I can say about our stay that wouldn't get five stars is the wifi signal. The farther you get from the kitchen, the weaker the signal becomes. As long as you're prepared to toggle between wifi and your personal data depending on your location in the home, you'll be fine.

Thanks, Ron! We hope to see you again real soon!
