About Terry and Glen

I was born and raised in Seattle and have had the good fortune to travel to see other places and I always seem to come back to this beautiful place. I believe you will love it too and I will do my best to make sure you have a beautiful home away from home to enjoy your vacation.

Terry and Glen purchased this house in 2015

Why Terry and Glen chose West Seattle

We have three properties and this one we call City View for it's amazing views of the harbor and the city. It doesn't get much better than this.

Everyone that has stayed in these homes have been thrilled with the accommodations, the view and location to the city, beaches and mountains and everything. Scuba, kayak paddle board, cycle, skateboard, and other activities 5 minutes away

What makes this house unique

We are 8 minutes to the City of Seattle, the stadiums and 10 minutes to the Space Needle, 5 minutes to Alki beach. Take the wagon, chairs and towels and head down to the beach. Sit back at the local pub and have a cold one with the beach in front of you, the mountains to the left and a view of the city to your right. Absolutely stunning views from everywhere you go.

Lovely home

We had a wonderful stay and had the most beautiful weather. This house was roomy and very nice. The beds were so incredibly comfortable. We would definitely stay here again. There is a Starbucks about half a mile from house it is a beautiful walk.

Great Offsite Planning Location for Business Meetings

  • 4 of 5

We are a small tech company and used this VRBO for an offsite planning session. We had about 8+ people for a two-day session and this location worked great! Since we are local to the area, we really didn't need sleeping accommodations for 8, but this house offered a great informal meeting place with plenty of options for break-out sessions. The large screen TV worked well for presentations (remember to bring your own HDMI cord!). Food deliveries to the area were great and the house is well stocked with everything one would need. The accommodations were beautiful.

What could have been better? Since this was a business meeting, we made special arrangements to have it for two days (8am to 8pm) and paid accordingly. It wasn't great to receive a call at 7:30 a.m. saying someone else had spent the night there and were exiting as we speak. We had a full day's agenda and wanted to start right ontime. I probably would have preferred not to have someone cleaning upstairs while we were meeting downstairs, but we rallied. You should be aware that parking is a premium at this location. 8 cars would never have fit! The owner was accommodating letting us park one in the garage. However, this one car was somewhat stuck when they wanted to leave and couldn't exit. All-in-all, this worked great and we'd definitely book again... just a few things to be aware of. Thanks!

A Wonderful Home Away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

This is truly a beautiful home, our family had a wonderful vacation and reunion! The views are amazing, the home is convenient to everything - water taxi to downtown, food stores, restaurants, Alki etc. etc. The kitchen was just what we were looking for, we all love to cook and found everything we needed. Terry was always helpful, responsive, and a fountain of information about anything Seattle. Thanks for sharing your home, we had a great time!

Amazing views from an amazing house!!

  • 5 of 5

This house was just beautiful. The furnishings were beautiful and comfortable. We felt so at home here. The views of the city and mountains were even better than the photos we saw in the add. I would recommend this house to anyone going to Seattle. It was easy to get to everything we wanted to see and do. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes and cookware. The master bath was unbelievable, huge shower, 3 shower heads, huge soaking tub with amazing views out the wall of windows. I couldn't imagine staying anywhere else in Seattle.

Beautiful home for entertaining

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in West Seattle for our daughter's wedding. This home itself was perfect for what we needed. Loved the master suite. The wedding rehearsal party we hosted for family and friends was a huge success, everyone loved the deck and view. We never felt crowded and guests were able to find quite corners to chat. We had a gorgeous view of Mt Rainier, visible 4 of our 5 days. The location was convenient to both groceries and dining in West Seattle and handy for getting in and out of downtown Seattle. Parking is a bit challenging but we rented a small car and had no problems. Per Terry's suggestion, we had our party guests park a block away and there were no problems. No complaints, everything worked out great for us.

Incredible, Stunning. Made Our Family Reunion The Best

  • 5 of 5

As soon as you walk into this gorgeous property, you GASP at how beautiful everything is, especially the floor to ceiling panoramic view of the Seattle city skyline, water & mountains! We were blown away at how stunning it was. Pure perfection. It was so wonderful, we all remarked it wasn't necessary to go out & play tourist because hanging out together in the house was so great. Even the teens & twenty somethings in the group all agreed. Why was it so great? The neighborhood in West Seattle was nice, safe & convenient to services, excellent grocery stores, near the beautiful Alki beach and close to downtown. Traffic can be heavy so it was fun to take the water taxi which seemed to take only 5 minutes to get into town. For our group of 10, it was so spacious we easily could hang out together. But if you need to steal away for some 1-on-1 conversation or solitude there were many lovely spaces for that too. Terry the owner was responsive, flexible, warm & friendly & very easy to work with. We had a small problem w/getting the key but it got resolved quickly. One thing that would be nice is if there was a notebook left in the house w/all the necessary details: check in & check out time, instructions on how to operate the various appliances, how Seattle recycling/garbage works, emergency contact info, etc. I've found that helpful in the other VRBO properties I've rented but it all worked out, we figured things out on our own. Honestly staying at the house was one of the highlights of the trip. Thanks Terry, for making our family reunion a big success!

Owner's Response: I want to Thank you for your feedback. I am so glad that your family used the house as I believe it is intended, to bring people together. Regarding the information book: When we began this endeavor last year we had written copies in the house but they disappeared so I was hoping to avoid it and use the hospitality manager on Homeaway as that is it's intended use. Based on the feedback I am getting is the guests are finding it hard to access the information that we have provided online so I will be sure and get it in written form again. I also send each guest a "List of items information sheet" that is 3 to 4 pages long before check in that contains that information. I went back and looked and all of our guests this summer had been sent this so I will work on confirming that everyone has received it just in case it gets into someone's spam folder. Very Helpful.
