Wonderful place to stay in Seattle area

  • 5 of 5

Best VRBO we have ever stayed at. Extremely accommodating, helpful and friendly. This is the cutest place for a small family, just enough room for 2 adults and 2 kids. Loved all the extras the owners left for us, from a quick breakfast to wine and chocolate. Easy to talk to via email or text and never thought twice about most things. It is truly set up as your home away from home. Favorite part was the ease of getting in and out of Seattle, traffic was mostly a breeze due to the house location. I would book here every time we go to Seattle.

Peaceful get-a-way

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Bellevue Cottage very much. Our hosts were very accommodating with a lovely welcome basket, fluffy robes and even some breakfast food in the fridge. Karin has thought of everything. On the front porch were a couple of beach chairs & a cooler if we wanted to go to the beach, flash lights and umbrellas if needed and a very complete book of information. My husband and I wanted an easy casual get away and the cottage was so comfortable we just hung around and relaxed in the mornings , then off to see the area's beauty. After a long day of hiking we found a restaurant that delivered (from looking in the information Karin had" It was great italian food and enough for a second night. We wrote in the guest book that this was our first VRBO and the Bellevue Cottage set a very high bar. Loved it, and would book it again. thanks from Christi & Ron!!

beautiful cottage with an amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

My son and I stayed in this lovely cottage for 4 days while we toured some of Seattle's best attractions and I can't say enough positive things about this VRBO rental. We were able to cook dinner after a trip to Pike's market with the very well appointed kitchen and also breakfast when we decided to get a slow start to our day. The location was perfect for us as we ventured often to downtown and also to Redmond to visit a friend. Karin and Randy's attention to detail was very much appreciated!!

Pristine Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Despite an unusual heat wave in Seattle, I loved my stay at this cottage. It was incredibly clean with all the amenities you could ask for, and the view of Lake Washington is spellbinding. I hope to return. Would definitely recommend this spot.
