                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About the owner: My husband and I love entertaining and showing people around the Northwest. Seattle has so much to offer and we can share local knowledge with you. For a nominal fee join us for a sail onboard our Nordic 44 sailboats, also available for skippered charter. We look forward to helping you have a wonderful Northwest experience.

                  Why the Owner Chose West Seattle:
                  We fell in love with this property the minute we saw it and immediately thought what a wonderful vacation rental our downstairs unit would be. West Seattle is a hidden gem with sweeping westerly views, close to all Seattle activities yet the feel of being close to nature.
