About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 3

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.

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.

About Laura and Joe Ross

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 three kids, 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

Great apartment in West Seattle

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Luna Park. The apartment was clean, welcoming and well set out. It was easy to jump on the bus to go downtown or walk a few blocks to grab groceries and get a coffee.

The apartment was perfect for my first time visit to Seattle.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was great. The location was perfect for so much of what I wanted to do. So close to downtown. Short ride to both stadiums, for baseball or football. Close to the market, ferries. It truly felt like my home away from home, lol. And, Laura was quick to respond to any questions I had during my stay. I definitely plan on going back to Seattle, and hope to be able to stay here again.

Calm upper house

  • 5 of 5

It is located in a residential neighborhood. Calm, even though there are 2 building sites close to it: to the side and behind the house's backyard. Walkable distance to public transportation, but I didn't use it. It had the essentials for my stay. It was clean, neat, and organized.

I would stay again.

Thanks Laura!

Fun times

  • 5 of 5

I did a lot of researching and found this perfect place to stay and visit Seattle. The house has all the comforts of a home, with a few extra perks. It was great to return from a full day of hustle and bustle to a quiet retreat. The neighborhood was quaint and safe. We used public transportation, the water taxi, and a lot of walking to get around. We used the reasonably priced city pass to make sure we visited places, went to a mariners game, and even rented a car at Enterprise to check out Mt. Rainier. We stayed in west seattle one day to hang out on Alki beach and really enjoyed it. Lincoln Park is worth going to. Grocery stores and restaurants were in walking distance or easily reached with the bus system. Laura was very helpful and responded quickly to any questions we had. After staying here, I would never even consider staying at a hotel. Thank you Laura for having such a welcoming house.
