Overview

About the property

1-bedroom house close to downtown and many of the great neighborhoods of Seattle

Whether in Seattle for pleasure or for business, you will enjoy your stay on Phinney Ridge, one of Seattle’s loveliest, most convenient neighborhoods.

This fully renovated, charming one-bedroom bungalow is located in a quiet, residential neighborhood and feels like a home away from home.

Perfect for travelers seeking peace and tranquility, this cozy home is stylish and comfortable – everything you could want in an upscale hotel suite and more.

The house features hardwood floors, lots of light, new kitchen and bathroom, and sound-minimizing windows. The large flagstone patio and garden out front is perfect for morning coffee, lunch al fresco or a glass of wine and dinner in the evening.

We want you to have a good night’s sleep in an unfamiliar environment. The queen-sized mattress in the bedroom is as comfortable as they come. Down alternative comforter and pillows protect against allergic responses, and there is a selection of extra pillows and bedding so that you can find just the right combination for a good night's rest. Blackout shades throughout the house provide plenty of excuses for sleeping in if you are in the bedroom or on the sleeper sofa. All sheets are high thread count and 100% cotton. A large closet with a built-in dresser features full-length mirrors on the doors.

The high quality living room sleeper sofa pulls out to a comfy queen-sized bed. No hide-a-bed bars here; instead, you will sleep well on a solid sleeping surface with a super comfy mattress.

The fully-equipped kitchen and dining nook has stainless steel appliances, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, blender, hand mixer as well as all the dishes, pots, pans and utensils you will need. Coffee, tea and hot chocolate are provided.

The bathroom includes a new shower with shampoo, conditioner and body wash, as well as hand soap, lotion, hair dryer and plenty of plush towels. Terry cloth robes are also provided.

Lightning fast, fiber-optic WiFi will keep you connected. A high-definition 40” TV is loaded with all of the standard cable channels and Netflix. Enjoy music on a Sonos speaker streaming Pandora or download the App to play your own collection.

There is washer and dryer on-site and we provide laundry soap and stain remover. An ironing board and iron will help get rid of those travel wrinkles.

The bungalow’s central location is ideal for exploring all that Seattle has to offer and for business travels who need to get to the business hot spots of the city. Easy access to freeways also makes Bellevue, Redmond and the rest of the East Side accessible. There is plenty of on-street parking right out front, and several bus stops within blocks. Downtown, Seattle Center and South Lake Union are just 10 minutes away by bus or car. Walk three blocks and you’ll be at the Woodland Park Zoo. Depending upon which direction you walk, drive or take a rideshare service, you will find tourist destinations, business centers, restaurants of all styles, lovely parks, grocery stores, coffee shops and a wide variety of stores for fun shopping nearby.

Phinney Ridge has the zoo, wonderful restaurants, specialty stores and parks within walking distance. Ballard, one of the hippest neighborhoods in Seattle with shopping and some of the city’s finest restaurants, is just down the hill. From there, visit the Ballard Locks to watch the salmon jump up the fish ladders. Keep going and you will find Golden Gardens, one of the most popular beaches in town. Fremont is even closer with lots of shops and restaurants and its famous Bridge Troll. Green Lake, which features a beautiful 2.8 mile running/walking path, boat rentals and a community center, is a short drive or a longer walk through the lovely wooded Woodland Park. Wallingford is 1 mile away and you will only be 2 miles from the University District. Downtown, Seattle Center and South Lake Union are all a 10-minute car or bus ride away.

Your hosts live next door and will respect your privacy, but they’re also just a text or phone call away should you have any questions or need anything.

Charming cottage close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

Right from my inquiry our experience was a perfect 10. Our hosts were very welcoming and besides having an immaculately furnished & clean home, they were a wealth of information about Seattle. Parking can be difficult in Seattle but the neighborhood isn’t that crowded so we didn’t have any issues. We can’t wait to stay again.

An absolute delight!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was absolutely wonderful for many reasons! Phinney Ridge Bungalow is a lovely property - beautiful decor, high quality furniture and finishes, amazing sleep sofa in living room, new and clean, and so very well organized and appointed. An absolute delight to be in it! The location is superb. And the owners' welcome was very warm and professional. We felt very well taken care of and provided with personalized attention but also left to enjoy our privacy and stay. We very much appreciated the extra mile Alexa went to in providing us some extra things we requested, as well as speedily mailing some school work that our daughter left behind. Her communication was always prompt, courteous and very warm. Thank you, Alexa!!

Sweet cottage in the heart of Phinney Ridge

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this cottage for two months while househunting. I am from Seattle and was looking for a great place in my neighborhood for an interim stay and I found it here! Only steps to the fantasic Woodland Park Zoo, downtown via transit in 15 minutes easy street parking, and loads of eatteries and coffee shops within blocks. The cottage is well designed, fully updated, and beyond cozy. The host went above and beyond to make our stay 5 stars (fresh cookies at check in where top notch) and geneuinly cared about our stay, househunt, and making sure everything was just right with the cottage while we’re were there. Do yourselves the favor, stop looking elesewhere and book this place, you won’t regret it! I will be having all our out of town guests staying here from this point forward!

Awesome Place Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at the Bungalow at Phinney Ridge for Christmas 2017. The house was perfect for our needs and stay. It had cozy living room with a very nice couch, TV and even silky soft blankets. The kitchen had everything you could want including a very nice refrigerator and cookies upon arrival. The bedroom was very nice with a great closet space, drawers and shelves. The bathroom was huge with a extra large shower. The house has been newly renovated to a very high standard and decorated very nicely. Located within easy walking distance to the Zoo and restaurants it is a great alternative to any high end hotel. Parking was never an issue. This is an awesome property and I will stay here again.
