About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

Soundview is a self-contained, absolutely private guest cottage with a spectacular view. With king sized bed, complete kitchen, dining area, living room with stereo, WiFi, DVD player, iPod dock with CD player, cable TV, washer and dryer, and an outdoor deck and private hot tub overlooking Puget Sound, you will be assured of a pleasant and convenient visit--just like a second home right here in Seattle.

Located just minutes from Seatac International Airport, downtown Seattle and Highline Hospital, Soundview is among the nearest vacation rentals to the airport - yet it is totally quiet and peaceful. A wide array of breakfast foods is provided for you to prepare as you wish, any time you wish. The kitchen is stocked with such items as eggs, cereal, milk, pancake mix, frozen individual quiches, muffins, fruit, juice, and gourmet coffee, for when you want to create your own morning feast.

Annie, your innkeeper, wants you to enjoy everything Seattle and the surrounding areas have to offer. Take in the drama of Mount Rainier, cruise the harbor in Elliott Bay for great views of the city and water wildlife, rent a kayak, visit some world class museums, enjoy some of the best theater and music on the west coast, or cheer on your favorites at one of the local sporting venues. If you have any special interests, let Annie know - she's glad to help you make the most of your visit here at the Soundview!

About Annie Phillips

Annie never considered becoming an innkeeper before she found Soundview in 2005. It 'came with the territory' and she thought she'd honor the existing reservations to see how she liked it. Yes! It's a fit.

Soundview is a separate guest house about 40 feet away from her own home. Both have the same spectacular view of mountains, islands and Puget Sound. In this quiet, peaceful setting, eagles glide through the tall trees and sailboats and cargo ships parade through the channel below.

Annie Phillips purchased this cottage in 2005

What makes this cottage unique

Soundview can be romantic, inspiring, or restorative. It's a home away from home for travelers, honeymooners, birthday or anniversary celebrants, and parents coming to meet the new bride or baby. Soak in the private hot tub, laze in the famously comfy kingsize bed, cook a feast in the complete kitchen or visit one of several excellent local restaurants. It's convenient to the airport and to downtown Seattle - yet amazingly quiet and intimate.

Lovely inside and out.

We spent a month at the cottage and it was perfect. We loved the location, the views and our host. The sunsets from the deck and hot tub were breathtaking night after night.

Our Stay at Soundview

  • 5 of 5

This lovely cottage is in an excellent location. It is far enough away for peace and privacy, and only a short car trip away from Seattle. Annie is a super kind and gracious hostess and was very accommodating, making sure every detail was taken care of from stocking the fridge with some basic food items to placing fresh flowers in the kitchen. We would not hesitate to recommend a stay in the Soundview Cottage. If you are looking to get away from it all, this is a great spot.

Honeymoon dream rental

  • 5 of 5

We booked this cottage based on pictures and description of rental property. They do not come near the shear beauty and location of this cottage. From moment we drove up to house till moment we left we didn't want to leave. We did but came back early to enjoy it. Annie has the best place in Seattle to rent hands down. Do not think twice about if you should or shouldn't just book it now. Too many pluses to mention. Just know you will regret it if you don't pick this rental. Best hostess, best cottage--period

Peaceful cottage

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Soundview cottage was simply lovely. Annie was a terrific hostess and very attentive to our needs. We loved that there was awesome breakfast food stocked when we got there and the supply was replenished as needed by our very kind hostess! The cottage is cozy, private and perfect for two.The best part was probably the view of the Sound! Amazing!

A very comfortable and peaceful place!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I fell in love with this place. It was beautiful and relaxing. We loved the location - it was close enough to drive to Seattle and explore but it also felt like we were in our own little secluded space. We would definitely recommend staying with Annie. She was a great host who went above and beyond to make our stay and enjoyable one.
