About Seth Gordon

I've been a vacation home renter for about three years and think I've gotten quite good at creating a nice comfortable environment for travelers to come home to while you're in Seattle.

Seth Gordon purchased this house in 2010

Why Seth Gordon chose Wallingford

Being 5 blocks off lake union, and 10 blocks from Green lake, you'll be able to easily indulge all your favorite pastimes. running, cycling, learn to row classes on the lake, and fine dining and beer brewing, all walking distance from the front door. 5 blocks from Burke Gilman trail.

What makes this house unique

This is a stunning newer modern architectural with high end finishes. If you are looking for a unique place to call home during your visit to seattle, you'll love it here. Easy access to the hustle of downtown, without having to deal with the city full time.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks to Seth and his place in Seattle we had a great first Airbnb experience. He was very clear in all his details, forgiving of a rookie mistake of checking in too early, and the place was not only just a described but great. Plenty of room and bed. Good wireless coverage. A nice kitchen and bathrooms. Private parking. And convenient to some great spots in town. Right around the corner from some great restaurants that we were able to walk to. We had a great time!

Can we come live here all the time?

  • 5 of 5

Staying at this modern home was by far our best experience on HomeAway. Everything was 100%. We arrived late in the evening, but checked our selves in with the digital keypad. Everything in the home was fresh and neatly prepared, just like our favorite hotel! We curled up by the fireplace and watched a few shows on the included Netflix. We had a restful and quiet sleep in the top floor master while the kids rested in the 2 downstairs bedroom. This is a house, and not a condo or apartment - no noisy neighbors to worry about. We usually have a suggestion or two for the host, but Seattle Stays thought of everything. Looking forward to using our discount when we return this summer!

Great property - Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The property was set up perfectly for our family. It was big enough for everyone to have space yet small enough to be manageable. The location is great with many stores and restaurants in walking distance and close to Downtown. I drove to Redmond daily and it was very convenient with 520 highway being close. Seth was very responsive to all requests. We stayed for 2 months and the house helped make the visit successful and enjoyable.

Great Property!

  • 5 of 5

I Recently booked this house for a trip to Seattle. Property was nice, clean, and stocked with amenities that you need. Each bedroom is decorated so cute and with a comfortable bed. Bathrooms are beautiful, clean, and fully stocked with towels. Property didn't have air conditioning but it's understandable because it's supposedly rains in Seattle 9 months of the year. We went on a week where it was super hot, but has access to fans all around the house so that wasn't a problem for us. House TV had basic cable and Amazon TV which was good for us. Property even provided us wifi, Thumbs up! Location is near a lot of places to walk to: coffee shops, restaurants, and convenience stores. So overall we had a great stay in Seattle. Seth was good with the whole booking process, responded quick to my questions and messages. We were even able to drop off our luggages early but weren't about to check in early due to cleaners, but it worked out fine. I would definitely recommend to stay at this property if you planning on staying in Seattle. =)

Great house, great location, great host

  • 5 of 5

Seth was very fast to reply to all our messages, very flexible and the house itself was fantastic. We had a great time in the quiet neighbourhood in a modern, clean and well-laid-out place. We'll definitely use this again when we're next in Seattle!
