About the property

6 bedrooms, 9 Beds, 3 Baths, Back patio, Chef Kitchen, Sleeps 16

A 6-bedroom modern house with newly renovated bathrooms located in the lively neighborhood of Capitol Hill, Seattle. With a sleeping capacity for 16 guests, the house is definitely ideal for large groups. It is conveniently situated within walking distance to downtown and Seattle's most visited spots like Volunteer Park (about 5 minutes walk), Cal Anderson Park( 3 minutes distance), Pike Place, Space Needle and a lot more !

Capitol Hill area is an urban neighborhood with tons of night life and things to do for people old and young. Right in the heart of the action just steps from some of the best restaurants, local bars, coffee shops, entertainment and shopping places. The area is very safe so kids can go to the park, 20 somethings can head for the night life, while others can just enjoy the great Seattle feel of living in a one of the most popular areas of Seattle for your time in Seattle.

The Space is well designed and posh so you have plenty of places to sleep and plenty of space for mingling with friends or family. Feel free to bring your furry friend.. We are pet friendly.. Just because your family has fur doesn't mean we should discriminate. We also clean our homes thoroughly after each guest so we don't leave dander or things that make people who are allergic sneeze or sniffle. We do however, leave it up to you if you want to bring that one crazy relative with you though (don't worry we all have one at least ) .. That can be a personal decision ;-)

We are kid friendly as well in fact each house comes with a pack and play to make you stay easier. If you don't want to lug stuff across the airport or country we can help you find a rental agency that rents kids car seats, toys, and the like.

We also have a number of connections we can help set you up with. Florist, Restaurants etc.

Had a blast at the Fun House!

  • 5 of 5

Family and friends aging from 6 to 68 gathered from all over the country for my son's wedding and we stayed at the Fun House. It was an easy four block walk with luggage from the Light Rail's Capital Hill stop. I was especially pleased to find that the sleeping quarters at the Fun House were well separate from the living area, so that anyone who wanted to sleep could sleep while those who wanted to stay up and visit or play could do so. We enjoyed the hot tub and the back porch and the back yard table in the sun. The beds were in fact all "real" beds as described, some more comfortable than others. The two bathrooms and three showers were perfect and there was never a line. The "movie star" room as my grand-daughters aptly named it was a big hit and a big help for folks as they readied for the wedding. We are already looking forward to our next stay!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Fun House for a 3 generation family vacation. This unique house provided exactly what was described. We had 16 people and the sleeping situation was more than adequate. There was plenty of space and areas for main gathering, young children, young adults and grandparents. The only issue we had was issues with the internet and the house does not provide cable TV. I have rented numerous homes and have never experienced this. It would not have been an issue except the grandparents stayed at the house more than others and with the internet issues they had trouble watching internet TV. One TV did have local stations but it was upstairs in a bedroom. I would recommend they move that to the main living area. The owners were quick to respond to fix the internet issues. The best part of this house is the location. A big highlight is the dressing room. It was perfect for all the girls to get ready and not tie up a bathroom. We were within a quick cab ride or short drive to anything we wanted to do. Restaurants, coffee shops, yogurt, grocery store and bars all within walking distance. Our family thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to Seattle.

plenty of rooms, fast communication

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay. There are plenty of beds, just enough for all of us. The location is great. There are lot of paces to dine and hang out that are near the house, literally walking distance. The host is easy to communicate with . They are responsive to our needs. We recommend this house. One suggestion is to add more kitchen items like utensils, plates and bowls but other than that , everything was perfect.

Nice Place. Plenty of space. Good times had by all

  • 5 of 5

While sleeping 16 here would have involved a lot of small-ish bed sharing, I had 13 people and it was wonderful. The hot tub was wonderful, there is a spacious backyard, and the kitchen was perfect to cook while others watched and talked.

We had a ladies get away weekend so the getting ready room was also a lot of fun for us.

Thanks for a good weekend.

Great stay in the heart of Seattle!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a long weekend with a group of friends and had a great time! The house was fully stocked with towels, kitchenware, and even an impressive array of spices. The rooms were fun with lots of character, and the location was ideal, as it was walking distance to local tourist attractions. House staff was very prompt and responsive. Their attention to detail and dedication was much appreciated. Would definitely stay again if in the neighborhood!

We are just steps from the most active day and night life in Seattle. There are 100's or restaurants, upscale coffee shops,local bars, entertainment and shopping spots within the area that are literally blocks away. Within 1 block you have the Starbucks concept store where they try out new tactics to be deployed worldwide AND the best coffee in Seattle (not Starbucks) .

The house's closest park is the play ground for a school which is 1 block away. You can also go 4 or so blocks further to Volunteer Park and Cal Anderson Park which are much larger and great places to hang out and see the locals do their thing.

Capitol Hill is the most sought after neighborhood in Seattle and this house sits right in the middle of it all but is just enough on the edge so that it is not running over you and are able enjoy a good night's sleep. There is something for everyone in this area 5 years old to 90 years old.

Within 1 block you have a theater, 20 restaurants or bars, what some say is the best coffee in Seattle, and even a place that makes everything with chocolate, including the drinks.

You can't get more 'Real Seattle Living' than this place.

Capitol Hill is the the home of many well-renowned music venues and bars. Also known as the Eclectic and Energetic, the area represents a combination of the old and modern. The neighborhood also has abundant art galleries, trendy fashion shops and a lot more!
