We came for an event at Key Arena, and this place was perfect. Several good restaurants nearby, and the location was great for us. We'd definitely stay here again!

Great stay in Queen Anne!

  • 5 of 5

The house was exactly what we needed for our trip to Seattle! Perfect for kids! My 2.5 yr old loved all the toys, which kept him very busy. Jill was very easy to get a hold of and made sure we had everything we needed. The location was close to Trader Joe's, molly moon ice cream, and a great donut shop down the street! Also the house was only 10 min to downtown and a 5 min walk to Kerry park for gorgeous views! We would definitely stay here again!!

Beautiful, family-friendly home in Queen Anne

  • 5 of 5

My family had a fabulous stay at Jill's home. Her home is beautiful, had plenty of amenities for adults and kids alike, was a two block walk from a beautiful park, and located within the terrific Queen Anne neighborhood. We were within a short ride of Seattle Center and all other key sites. I would highly recommend this rental, particularly to families with kids. Thanks, Jill!
