About the property

4 Bedroom, 3.5 Bathroom, Sleeps 9

4 Bedroom, 3.5 Bath With Chef's Kitchen Near Green Lake & 10 Mins To Downtown.

Beautiful designer home with chefs kitchen was completed in 2013. This house has lots of light and is located blocks from great restaurants, coffee shops, and bars. It is 15 minutes from downtown and near Wallingford, Fremont, Ballard, and the University District (UW).

Green Lake is one of Seattle's best local neighborhoods. It is full of shopping, restaurants, and is the city's recreational center. Fun activities for families and singles abound and you can walk to the Woodland Park Zoo.

The space

Guests have the entire property to themselves. The house is built on the foundation of a house built in the 1920s. Although the only thing left from that bungalow is the front door! The large number of windows give this house an open and light feeling. It is a completely modern house with wi-fi throughout the house, top of the line appliances, Nest thermostats on 3 floors, large walk-in closets in 3 of the bedrooms (for those who don't travel light), and 2 TVs with cable including HBO on one of the TVs.

There are a full size washer and dryer open for guests to use and the kitchen is fully equipped (friends make fun of me for my collection of gadgets) for you to make anything from breakfast to a formal dinner.

I know Seattle has a reputation for a little bit of rain, so for the nights that you just don't feel like going out, there are fun games under the main floor TV.

When you do feel like going out, you can stay in the neighborhood and walk to Tangletown (2 blocks away) which is a tiny little group of restaurants and bars including the Elysian brewery restaurant/bar, a great sushi place, one of the best donuts in America, a tiny restaurant from one of Seattle's leading chefs, a gastropub, a dive bar, a Japanese bakery, a Tibetan restaurant, and the original Zoka coffee which is considered by many to be one of the best coffee houses in Seattle. It is amazing how much is packed into 3 blocks! If you want to go just a little farther, you have easy access to some of the best neighborhoods in Seattle (Ballard, Fremont, the University District, Ravenna, and Wallingford)

The house is 3 stories up and a finished basement. It has a small backyard and one off street parking spot. Parking on the street is easy if there is more than one car. There are no time limits or parking regulations.

I hope you love my home and feel as comfortable in it as I do.

Key Things to Note:

Families with Infants - The house is not child-proofed, but we will make a high chair, a baby gate for the main floor, and a pack n play available upon request.

Lots of stairs - If you or someone in your group has mobility problems or issues with stairs, this house would not be suitable due to the number of stairs to get to the front door and to get to any bedrooms.

No Air Conditioning - Seattle has very mild summers and mostly cool nights, but we do get occasional hot days. The house does not include air conditioning, so during the summer you will probably sleep with the windows open and fans going. The only room that it can be an issue is the master bedroom on the top floor. The other 3 bedrooms are usually cool at night when the windows are open. (The street is a quiet street without much traffic.)

About owner/property manager

I work in travel, so I know what I want when I am on the road. I put a lot of those thoughts into my own house. Hopefully it shows! I love Seattle and am always happy to host people in my home that will love it as well. It is truly a great town.

owner/property manager purchased this house in 2013

Why owner/property manager chose Wallingford

This property has a great location just outside of the Seattle center. Close enough not to be bothered when you go in, far enough not to be hassled with the noise and traffic. It is a really comfortable community where you can relax and get away. It is my home and not just a vacation rental, so hopefully, you will feel at home here as well.

What makes this house unique

It was a house built with luxury in mind. It has radiant heat in the floors which is the best way to warm a house. You aren't getting warm air blown on you and in most of the house you will never step on a cold floor. The kitchen has high-end appliances and the master bathroom is amazing. Even the 2nd-floor bathroom has double sinks. I think that it is a house that won't disappoint.

Great location, comfortable beds, charming house!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the house on Green lake with our daughter and her family. It was a close walk to the lake which has a path to walk around, boat rentals, swimming, pickleball & tennis courts! Restaurants within walking distance and a great bakery (Sea Wolf) only a short drive away! The master bedroom had a room air conditioner which made it comfortable on warm nights. The beds are super comfortable! We would definitely love to come back!

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about our stay. The location was not far from our class site, a variety of restaurants and the lake. It was an easy walk to the lake and the neighborhoods were also calling for our exploration. Kevin has a beautiful home that is warm and welcoming, even more so with the added amenities of a huge bowl of yummy, colorful, fresh fruit and cookies on the long dining table. The kitchen is well outfitted to meet almost every cooking need. There was lots of space for the five of us to gather but also to have our separate spaces too. The home was spotless and comfortable. The beds were cozy after long days in class. It was quiet. You could not hear noise from one floor to the another. Hettie, our hostess was great - very warm and friendly. She was flexible in meeting our schedule. She gave thorough explanations about the workings of the home and tips about the surrounding area. The home is a real find for a family or group of people needing a relaxing place to stay. Each one of us would stay at the house again. Thank you.

Beautiful home. Great location. Awesome hospitality.

  • 5 of 5

There are so many positive things I could say about our stay. To start off, our host Kevin, was very prompt and helpful from initial inquiry to the end of our stay. Kevin replied to emails in a timely manner and even went out of his way to send us a word document full of recommendations for our girl's weekend. Our stay in Seattle was nothing but enjoyable.

Upon arrival to the house, we were greeted by Kevin's co-host, Hettie. Hettie gave us a few set of keys for the home, made us feel welcomed and quickly answered all of our questions and concerns throughout our stay.

The house was open, beautifully decorated, clean and modern. There was a spacious sectional to lounge on and dining room table for our entire party to gather around. The kitchen had up to date appliances, and provided us with everything we needed: cooking/eating utensils, pots/pans, baking pans, dish ware, spices, cooking oils, coffee and tea! The bedrooms were clean and each bed had the SOFTEST sheets and comforters we had every felt!! There were also plenty of bath and hand towels available. Our group of friends and I had nothing but great things to say about the house. We were able to make ourselves feel at home making our trip that much better. I would definitely stay at Kevin's home again the next time I visit.

Don't hesitate to book this home for your trip, you will not regret it.

Thank you Kevin & Hettie for everything!
