Commonly Asked Questions:
The home is very close to the freeway, is noise an issue?
Answer: This home is located very close to I-5 which gives renters convenient access to anywhere they want to go. Noise from the freeway has never been an issue. The freeway has a sound barrier running between it and the street on the west side. The home is located facing the lake (west) away from the freeway and there is a row of houses between the freeway and the house. I am a light sleeper and lived there for 5 yrs and it has never been an issue.
Do you have suggestions for where to go, what to see and where to eat?
Answer: When you book our property we will provide you with tons of information about Seattle and the Eastlake Neighborhood. There is also a binder located at the home that contains tons of information (including restaurants that deliver!) and renters are welcome to add their own recommendations to this book. We will help you make the most of your visit to the area and we are on call to answer any questions that may come up!!!
About the neighborhood: Eastlake
Today, Eastlake is the product of its history along with hard work by its citizens to establish street end parks, the latest of which is the Fairview/Olmsted Park, to plant street trees, and bring public art to the neighborhood. In 1998, the Seattle City Council adopted the Eastlake Neighborhood Plan, prepared by a committee of local residents, business, and property owners with lots of input from the neighborhood. In the future, local citizens hope the plan will guide them in their neighborhood improvements and guide the city in its decisions.
Eastlake is one of Seattle's oldest and best-defined neighborhoods. It is east of Lake Union (hence the name 'Eastlake'), south of University bridge, west of Interstate 5, and north of Mercer Street. With about 5,000 residents, Eastlake is a pleasant jumble of houseboats, single family homes, apartments, condos and small businesses. Over the past twenty years residents of Eastlake have worked hard to conserve the character of the neighborhood, plant street trees, to develop shoreline parks and points of interest along the shores of Lake Union, to install public art and to plan for transportation and future development through its neighborhood plan.
History of Eastlake: Eastlake became identifiable as a neighborhood in the 1890's. With the opening of the University Bridge in 1919, travel through Eastlake was encouraged. Residentially, Eastlake became a streetcar neighborhood of small apartments. Along the Lake, industrial uses grew up. Boeing's first factory was located at the foot of Roanoke Street. Houseboats began to move in and factories move out in the 40's and 50's. In 1962 the I-5 freeway came roaring through the neighborhood, defining Eastlake's eastern edge and changing the neighborhood forever. In the early 1970's, Eastlake was rediscovered and residents set about conserving it and added parks, trees, and public art in the 1980's.

The reason for the amazing view is because this home is located on top of a hill overlooking the wonderful Eastlake neighborhood. Closest cross streets are Boylston Ave E & E Lynn Street. Eastlake is on the east side of Lake Union which is located directly north of downtown.
The location is perfect for exploring Seattle and the surronding areas! It is very close to on and off ramps for I-5 North and South. The neighborhood itself doesn't have much traffic but has all kinds of transportation options. When you book this rental I include insider information into what to do and see while you are in Seattle!
Other Activities: Tourist Activities (tours), Shopping, Boating,
Year Purchased: 2001
About the owner: My Name is Anne and I am the manager and owner of Seattle View Property. As owner, I'm proud to extend my home to my guests. I manage the booking/scheduling, customer service and accounts receivables.
I always have time for my renters!!!
My family and I love to take quick trips to Seatte and stay at Seattle View Property. We love visiting all the parks and attractions that Seattle has to offer. I lived in the Seattle area up until a few years ago so I know the area very well and I can answer most questions you can come up with about the area.
Why the Owner Chose South Lake Union: The home was purchased as my primary residence and then later converted to a vacation rental. The view was the reason I bought the house... instantly it made me feel like I was on vacation and I had to have it.
The location is great! The EastLake Neighborhood has many wonderful Restaurants and shops. There are always events going on close by. I love how the on and off ramp for I-5 is so close but you don't hear the freeway noise. It's close to downtown but you aren't kept up all night by the noise of downtown.
Eastlake is a community in Seattle, Washington that lies between the eastern shore of Lake Union and the western side of I-5. Eastlake Avenue bisects the neighborhood running one and a half miles, from the length of the University Bridge at the north end to the Fairview Eastlake intersection at the south end.
The Unique Benefits at this Townhome: Personally I like visiting the small park at the end of the street where you can sit and enjoy Lake Union, The houseboats and the beautiful artwork. I love all the small lesser known parks in the Seattle area, ask me about them.
The Woodland Park Zoo is not far away and this is always a favorite spot for the kids! I like to walk around Pike Place Market and go play at Gas Works Park. Seattle has many amazing Theatres including The Paramount, The Showbox and many others.
