Wallingford house description

Charming bungalow in Wallingford - one of Seattle's best urban neighborhoods, nestled between Fremont and the University District. The house is in a safe and quiet but vibrant neighborhood and is only a 10-minute drive to downtown locations such as Pike's Place Market, the Space Needle, several museums, Capitol Hill, Key Arena, both Safeco and Qwest/Century Link fields, and to downtown ferries to Bainbridge Island or the Clipper to Victoria. It is only minutes away from the University of Washington, Seattle Pacific University, and the zoo. Bus service is within blocks. Easy on-street parking.

The house is in a great walking neighborhood (WALKING SCORE 97/100) - within walking distance of many restaurants and cafes, two movie theaters, a grocery store, banks, shops, and bars. Walk down the hill to the south to Gas Works Park on the northern shore of Lake Union with incredible views of downtown Seattle and the Space Needle. Or walk north to Green Lake, one of the most popular parks in the city with rental boats, tennis courts, baseball diamonds, a city 9-hole golf course, community swimming pool, and a 3-mile walking trail around the lake. There are two wonderful playgrounds less than six blocks away, and a smaller one a half block away. There are two wading pools for young children: one about 5 blocks to the south and one at Green Lake.

The house was built in 1916 - it has a very private fenced-in backyard patio, a nice front porch with room for two, a soaking tub in the master bath, and a large living room. All on one floor. Two bedrooms contain queen beds; a hide-a-bed in the living room can accommodate two additional guests. Hardwood floors throughout. An ideal home for two couples to share or a family in town for a wedding, birth, graduation, vacations, or reunions. For 'unrelated' friends, a third, very small bedroom with a double bed is available for $50 extra per night (on the same floor). Let me know if you want this option. The limit of guests for the house remains at 6 total.

WiFi internet and flat screen TV with comcast cable included.

A portable crib is available upon request.

The house has just about everything you'll need in kitchen supplies and dishware, linens, and I've just upgraded to 800 TC Egyptian cotton sheets in the three bedrooms.

The Skansonia, a popular wedding venue, is just down the street.

As I know plans change, I allow refunds up to 30 days before the occupancy period. For that reason, I have a waiting list for last minute cancellations. If the time period is listed on the calendar is 'unavailable,' you can request to be placed on the waiting list.

For more information, read what former guests have to say in the REVIEWS SECTION.

What I have to say about MY GUESTS: I started renting out my home on VRBO in 2009 and I have had hundreds of wonderful guests stay at the Bungalow. It has turned out to be so much fun being able to contribute to the special times in people's lives: graduations, weddings, new grandchildren, and reunions. I always enjoy meeting my guests whenever possible while remaining respectful of their privacy. They have consistently returned the favor by being respectful of the Bungalow. It continues to be a great partnership.

A NOTE ABOUT THE RATES:
I have two options: I can lock the third bedroom and charge less for smaller groups (two couples, small family, etc.) who don't need the 3rd bedroom. But many people want all 3 bedrooms. This website can't accommodate this '3-bedroom' option in the rates section if I use the 'pay online' method which people seem to want.

So the rates are as follows in the summer:
2-BEDROOMS - $285/night; $1850/wk
3-BEDROOMS - $335/night; $2150/wk

If this doesn't seem right when you're paying online, let me know and we'll figure it out.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 1992

          About the owner: Photo at left is just before snowmachine ride on Vatnajokul Glacier in Iceland, summer 2009. I started renting out my home that first summer, then moved to a condo downtown near the Space Needle and rent out the home full time. In 2010 we went to Buenos Aires, then to Turkey and Amsterdam (stayed on houseboat through VRBO) in 2011. We spent New Year's Eve 2012 in a VRBO apartment in the heart of Paris followed by a winter weekend in Iceland. Travel Update: In October 2013 we took my 91-year old mother-in-law on her first trip to Israel. We had a fabulous time. Now, August 2014, we've just returned from a trip up and down the coast of Maine. I lived in this house for about 18 years. It is a wonderful home in a fun and vibrant neighborhood. Even though we're just 10 minutes from the downtown core, the sought-after neighborhood of Wallingford feels like a small town. The home was built in 1916. I grew up in Rhode Island and the Bay Area, then spent 14 years in Alaska, finally landing here in Seattle, the perfect combination of city, salt water, and mountains.

          Why the Owner Chose Wallingford:
          Looked like a great neighborhood, close to everything, and easy to access from a variety of directions. A great place for families.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          The best part about this house is the neighborhood. There are two major roadways into downtown, plus numerous side streets (and three more bridges). But in the neighborhood, great restaurants are within walking distance: Tilth, Musashis, Eva's, Kisaku, Julias, Bizarros, Joule, Blue Star Pub, Tutta Bella, Murphy's Pub, Smash Wine Bar, Tangletown Pub, several Thai places and too many other restaurants and coffee houses to list. And you are close to other great neighborhoods like Fremont, Ballard, Phinney Ridge, Green Lake, University District and Eastlake.
