About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath (Sleeps 4)

This cute little cottage has two bedrooms and 1 bath, with a living room and kitchen and is all on one level (no basement), with off-street parking. The neighborhood (about 3.5 miles north of downtown Seattle) is quiet (on a dead-end street) and within walking distance of buses and restaurants. The house is furnished with all new furniture (mostly Euro-styled), including a queen-size bed in the master bedroom and a double-size futon/coach in the 2nd bedroom/study. The kitchen is fully equipped, including an espresso machine. Most of the appliances (washer/dryer, gas range, microwave, refrigerator, dishwasher) are new and whole place has been renovated within the past couple of years. It has a gas fireplace, with forced air gas heating and A/C. There is high-speed internet with a wireless router with cable and phone outlets in both bedrooms and living room. The yard is fully fenced and landscaped (with a pond and water fountain), and has a great view (to the west) of Magnolia, Queen Anne, & Ballard with water and mountains. The living room and master bedroom have French doors to the back-yard (and view), with a covered patio off the bedroom, and includes a barbeque and fire-pit.

Our stay met all expectations. The owner was super responsive through out the entire process. We had everything we needed at the home and it was perfectly located in an awesome part of Seattle. We recommend it highly.

Nice house, great location and view

  • 5 of 5

We spent two nights at View Cottage. It's aptly named with a wonderful harbor view. The house is comfortable and nicely furnished. We cooked a wonderful dinner in the kitchen and also enjoyed eating out at some of the great restaurants in the area. I loved all the windows. Peter was very responsive when we had a question. In a town with a lot of vacation rentals run by big companies, we really appreciated a place that was managed by a responsible owner.

Cute, cozy quiet location on a hill with spectacular views

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for us, close to our daughter and family, able to walk to their house every morning and return in the evening. Very comfortable layout, clean and well maintained furnishings, plenty of towels, blankets etc. We only used the tea kettle in the kitchen and the only thing I would give a mediocre mark on would be the pots and pans, old, scratched Teflon type! Not what I like to use. We cooked at our daughters and went out! Walked to Rock fish grill? right near u needa burger, and Pecada Bueno, across the street? Not sure of the names but excellent food. Also Lighthouse coffee shop!!! We walked downtown Fremont and Ballard, all very accessible from the house, heart pumping hills and unique shopping.

We will certainly be back. We didn't get to meet Peter but very responsive to emails prior to our arrival and really no needs during our stay, easy instructions re doors, tv, fireplace.

Owner's Response: Susan: Glad you enjoyed your stay. We will look into upgrading the pots and pans, as they have been in use for a few years now. Peter
