Starla grew up in the greater Seattle and knows the city well. Tom came from Pennsylvania. We have three grown children and like to being around them. We enjoy traveling the outdoors and people. We've hosted exchange students for over 30 years from Japan. China, Thailand, Spain, Italy and France. So VRBO would be a good fit for us. Whether you want total privacy or want to chat we are respectful of your desires.

Nice place for a few days

  • 4 of 5

Everyone enjoyed the daylight basement...lots of natural lighting. Starla and Tom were very welcoming and let us use their BBQ for our dinners. Practical type of place that has what you need, nothing fancy. Suited our group of six very well. The one bedroom has extra beds and a crib. Bellevue is a beautiful area to bike and we enjoyed the trails and lovely scenery on our adventures.

Great Place

  • 3 of 5

when you arrive there is no sign telling you where to go. Our friends actually walked into the main house. The walk down to the entry was not maintained properly, steep and not graveled. The ad says it allows for two cars parking off road and we were informed to park on the side of street. The living quarters were very nice. They need separate air conditioning control in the unit, it gets hot and stuffy in the evenings. It is nice and roomy and comfy

Wonderful experience at Newcastle VRBO

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this VRBO for four days while our floors were being refinished. We are actually Newcastle residents. We needed a place to accommodate our family of 5 and this could not have been more perfect! There was plenty of room for myself, my husband and our 3 kids. The VRBO has all of the amenities you need when staying away from home (fully stocked kitchen, comfortable and clean living spaces, a nice bathroom, easy access to the freeway, close to stores and parks, etc.). My 2 sons absolutely LOVED the giant back bedroom! The owners are very welcoming, warm and accommodating. I was very happy to have found this place and would definitely stay here again if needed!

A great place to stay with easy access to freeways for getting into Seattle.

  • 5 of 5

The home gave us plenty of room to be comfortable. We each had our own sleeping room. The kitchen was well equipped for our cooking needs. We felt we had plenty of privacy and could come and go without disturbing the owners.

Beautiful, spacious home!

  • 4 of 5

The house was very nice. In an awesome location, very clean and well stocked with essentials. Only two issues- the first two nights, the House was frigid. Even with the space heaters on full blast, we all froze. It was much warmer toward the end of our stay. We had a 4 year old and 1 year old with us and the space heaters get so hot that they are not very safe to have around younger kids.

Owner's Response: Oh, I feel horrible that you felt the cold.... I wish you would've said something about that as we control the heat to the downstairs and would've been happy to turn it up. It was during the freezing weather and that is why we have the radiator heaters also for your use. We have had many children stay, but maybe we need to look at an alternative space heat. Thanks for letting us know.
