"This house was perfect for our multi-family week in Seattle. 6 adults and 3 children were quite comfortable in this gorgeous Magnolia home. The kitchen had everything we needed to make a family meal every night, including a gas grill outside. Monica (the manager) responded to all requests and concerns in a timely manner. The views...incredible! The laundry room was well stocked with clean towels, and fresh linens were available. We were worried about the house feeling too "small" for 3 families, but the house is so well situated and spacious, that we could have all lived there forever ;) And that's saying a lot for a person who likes privacy and space!
Some things to consider:
There are loft areas, and some windows don't have screens, so if you have small children this may be a concern.
You will need a car, as Seattle Center is a 10-15 minute drive away in traffic.
You are not really walking distance from anything because Magnolia is hilly (thus the wonderful views).
This house is absolutely worth every cent we paid!"

"What a wonderful stay. Perfect location for a wedding in Ballard; we walked across the locks to the venue and enjoyed every minute of our vacation. The unit is directly on the water with breathtaking views of the shipping traffic and the amazing Bascule-type railway bridge. Gina also has a nice waterfront sitting area that we used for a small get-together while grilling burgers and brats. The unit is freshly updated with new kitchen appliances, tiled bathroom, and even toys and cribs for kiddos. The Locks are a 5 minute walk and Discovery park is 10. Uber was our friend during our stay and our ride to the airport on Sunday only cost $35, about half of a taxi. With one bathroom and 3 females getting ready for the wedding, the men were relegated to the kitchen for shaving and prep (not that 4 bathrooms would have helped the timing much anyway...). Highly recommended and we will aim to stay here again. Thanks, Gina!"

"We spent 10 days in Seattle and absolutely loved it! The Portage Bay Guest Cottage was perfect. Pam was wonderful! The cottage is in a great location to catch a bus to downtown, or drive a car to explore. Pam had even found a portable air conditioner for the cottage because the temperatures in Seattle were higher than normal. We would love to go back and stay there again."
