Seahurst cottage description

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, complete kitchen and cozy living room. Part of historic Seahurst neighborhood and within ten minutes of Sea-Tac airport (SEA). Enjoy the shops and restaurants of downtown Burien, or drive 20 minutes to downtown Seattle.

This darling cottage is your perfect home away from home. The space feels rustic and quiet while being part of a wonderful neighborhood and very close to the city. The view of the Sound and Olympic mountains is at times uplifting and magnificent. The bedroom has a brand new very comfortable queen bed. The kitchen is well equipped and has a new dishwasher. This is indeed a very special place!

I dare you to not jump barefoot through the garden and yard while screaming - 'Oh my god, this is amazing!' while taking pictures of the ferry boats and tug boats. I've seen it happen.

Our house, an older updated and restored log home, is on the property. We would love to say hello and hear about your travels. You will find first day breakfast in your refrigerator - probably a nourishing veggie and egg frittata topped with cheese for you to bake at your convenience. Our terrier Rowdy and large pointer mix Juneau can be seen playing and rough-housing together.

Our quiet neighborhood boasts a variety of mid-century home styles and our street in particular seems to be used by many for daily walks. We are right above the lovely Seahurst Park. Unfortunately it is closed this Winter 2013 for removal of the seawall that is there. Eagle Landing Park is just to the south of us if you like climbing stairs for exercise. Within walking distance ~ 152nd is the place to be. The small town atmosphere boasts several sweet choices for eating out.

A taxi is about twenty dollars from the airport. It would be a several block walk from the bus . The Burien transit center is on 148th near the Safeway shopping center.

Burien is well located for everything Seattle has to offer. Southcenter Shopping is ten minutes to the east.
