Why John and Trish chose Eastlake and Portage Bay

It was perfect
This is the place to come for a beautiful Seattle trip. The houseboat is amazing.
Terrific house and host
The boathouse is truly magical, and John, the host, is very helpful and provided ample provisions for our 4 night stay. (coffee, milk, beer, wine, soda, snacks) Highly recommend!
Amazing getaway right in the city.
This house is amazing!!! I stayed here with friends for the weekend and it was such a peaceful retreat, while located right in the city. The house is decorated so nicely with everything you need (and more) and it is spotless which is important to me because I am a clean freak. We enjoyed the beautiful views looking out onto the water and soaking in the hot tub on the deck. The fire kept us cozy and we had a wonderful relaxing time.
Perfect Seattle Houseboat
I rented this houseboat when my Mom and Aunt came for a visit, and we were all thrilled with it. Even though it was a rainy Seattle weekend in January, we loved sitting in the living room and looking out at the water - we could have stayed there all day. The interior is gorgeous and the hosts were accommodating and thoughtful. It had everything we needed for a perfect Seattle weekend away, and we will definitely be back.
Floating Paradise with Unobstructed Water Views
As frequent VRBO patrons we can enthusiastically recommend this property! This houseboat is by far the most unique and exclusive vacation rental we've stayed in. If you're looking for the perfect place for a romantic get away or simply want a quiet retreat away from the noise of the city - this is the place! While close enough to restaurants, shopping, and all downtown Seattle has to offer, this gem makes you feel like you're away from it all. It's impeccably maintained and appointed with everything you could possibly need; even a two person hot tub. We stayed on a cold rainy Seattle weekend and it couldn't have been more perfect. With a warm fire going , we were cozy and curled up inside while we watched movies and the rowing crews pass by. Thank you, John and Trish, for sharing your piece of heaven! We can't wait to return.
Stunning, Immaculately Clean, Peaceful
I have stayed at the property a number of times over each season and John and Trish are just the most caring hosts. I am a total SNOB for cleanliness and I can guarantee that this is THE CLEANEST property I have every stayed at. The houseboat is always in pristine condition and John and Trish go out of their way to make it perfect. Summer is a blast here! Love just jumping right off the dock and floating with a drink in hand and watching the boats pass by at a leisurely pace. Winters are wonderful, too. I love bundling up - coffee in hand! - and watching the morning mist slowly lift off the water throughout the day. Also, very fun to see the crew boats go by. If I could, I would give this property 10 stars. Stay here! There is a cute cafe right up the hill within walking distance, and It's a quick uber ride to downtown. Couldn't be better!
You are in the quiet portion of Portage Bay, yet within MINUTES of all the action of the U. District, Lake Union, or Downtown.
