About the property

2bdrm, 1bath. Great ambiance & central location. Near retail stores and parks.

In the heart of Wallingford, one of the most wonderful & convenient locations in Seattle. Near 2 lakes (Lake Union, Green Lake), 4 parks (Wallingford, Meridian, Gas Works, Green Lake), and a retail area with ice cream shops, movie theater, restaurants, coffee shops, grocery & drug stores, weekly farmer’s market and more. Very walkable, with good transit and easy access to I-5 and Aurora (99). It is a very easy place from which to sightsee the rest of Seattle. You’ll love it . Our place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and families with kids.

The house is comfortable, rich in details and a wonderful place to enjoy Seattle's glorious summer. One of the house gems is its yard. As you can see in the photos, it a magical place to be. It has 2 patios, a deck, and a charming garden building. You can use the garden building as an office, yoga or meditation space or all three. There is even a BBQ on the upper patio.

Inside, the flat enjoys 10 ft high ceilings & hardwood floors. The 2 bedrooms are spacious. One bedroom has a very comfortable queen size bed, built in bookcases, and is simply beautiful. The other bedroom is light and cheery with 2 double beds (one is a canopy bed). The living room is rich in textures including exposed chimneys. The kitchen flows onto a deck and the fabulous yard that we described above.

About Betsy

We have lived in Seattle for almost 30 years. We both moved here to go to graduate school at UW. We have 2 children. We live part-time here in wonderful Seattle, and part-time in a small charming beach town in Panama, Puerto Armuelles.

Betsy purchased this house in 1989

Why Betsy chose Wallingford

This house is the original farmhouse from when this area was farms. It is hard to believe that now. The general store is just down the street. It is still there, but now it is a coffee shop. This property simply has a good feel to it. We love living here.

What makes this house unique

We love the yard. It is a bit bigger than most yards in the neighborhood, mostly because the farmer subdivided it himself, and this was his home.

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay in this charming house. The thing that was the greatest delight is the time we spent together. There was no blare of the TV common with kids, but rather a wonderful selection of board games to choose from a library that was out of this world perfect for curling up on a chilly morning with a cup of coffee. The accommodations were clean and comfortable with a generous amount of supplies such as coffee, olive oil and spices all the things you need to get a little warm breakfast on the table. If we get to return to Seattle we'll definitely be looking for this house again. Oh - and I didn't even mention the lovely oasis in the backyard. We couldn't have asked for a better place to park ourselves for a long stay.

One thing about this owner - she was incredibly responsive and helpful. She left a binder of really wonderful info. Also, as a long time user of VRBO I can't tell you how great it was to work with someone who has straightforward fees. More and more I'm finding people charge random "processing fees" and "management fees." This really drives me crazy when you're trying to work within a budget of a set price per night - only to find out that with all the fees it's actually double. Betsy offered fair, transparent, straightforward pricing and that was really wonderfully refreshing.

Very Comfortable Wallingford Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed here for a month in August while our house was being remodeled. The house was very quiet and the beds were comfortable. There were lots of games to keep entertained and the location is super walkable/busable. The yard is really something special--we loved everything about our stay here and Betsy was very accommodating and responsive. Highly recommend!

Nice, quiet, peaceful place

  • 5 of 5

This place was just what I was looking for. A quiet neighborhood, comfy bed, and a peaceful backyard served as an awesome home base for my Seattle getaway. Minor, non deal breakers were that I wish more of the windows had drapes or blinds, the microwave was in an odd place (living room bookshelf), and it would have been nice to have a TV. Again, we still had a great time without those things! Would stay again!

Clean and well-appointed space with charm, convenience and unique personality.

  • 5 of 5

The space was clean and organized, from a kitchen with plenty of gadgets to a bathroom with lots of storage space. The bedrooms were quiet and chairs were quite comfortable. We especially enjoyed the serenity of the backyard and being able to use the barbecue. Also there is a tiny shed in the yard which helped me concentrate while doing homework. The internet was fast and I hardly missed having a TV (besides, everyone watches TV off of their laptops anyway).

Upstairs neighbors were quiet and respectful. An overall pleasant experience.
