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 the stadiums for Seahawks football and Mariner's baseball!
Luna Park Upper occupies the second floor in this shared 1920's home. One bedroom with a queen bed and a daybed allow Luna Park Upper to sleep up to three guests. The living, dining, and kitchen areas are set up with an open floor plan to maximize space. A bathroom completes the suite. Towels and linens are provided, as well as wireless high-speed internet and satellite TV. The simple kitchen includes a coffee and enough kitchen gear to prepare a simple meal. A portable crib is available upon request. Luna Park Upper is a pet-free rental.
The main floor of the house, Luna Park Lower, 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 the lower and upper floors together for larger groups (up to 7 guests), inquire for pricing.
Luna Park Upper 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.

Yes - it is easy to find a spot on our street near the house and parking is free.

It is possible to get around without a car. This house is about a block from a Rapid Ride bus stop and line C has frequent, fast service to downtown (about 6 miles away). From the airport, you can take a cab, or ride light rail to downtown and bus to the house. There are a variety of restaurants and shops within walking distance.
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
A great escape from the hectic pace in Seattle. Close to everything we needed. Clean and well stocked. Street parking was no problem! Very steep stairs presented a challenge with our heavy luggage, but well worth it to stay here!
I stayed here with my 3 year old son. He loved going up and down the stairs in the entryway. The kitchen had everything I needed and the whole place was clean and comfortable. I didn't have any problems with finding parking and location is great.
Great apartment. We would definitely stay there again.
Location had easy access to getting downtown or to water taxi if you chose to. Enjoyed our stay in Seattle.
Quiet, cozy, and comfortable upstairs apartment in West Seattle served us well. Served as perfect retreat from livelier parts of town. Getting around is possible without a car (thanks to Uber/Lyft, seataxi, and good old two feets). The owners were helpful and polite.
