Wonderful place to stay in Seattle area

  • 5 of 5

Best VRBO we have ever stayed at. Extremely accommodating, helpful and friendly. This is the cutest place for a small family, just enough room for 2 adults and 2 kids. Loved all the extras the owners left for us, from a quick breakfast to wine and chocolate. Easy to talk to via email or text and never thought twice about most things. It is truly set up as your home away from home. Favorite part was the ease of getting in and out of Seattle, traffic was mostly a breeze due to the house location. I would book here every time we go to Seattle.

cozy and welcoming

The cottage has a lovely view and is very well appointed and comfortable. The hosts are incredibly helpful and friendly, and there were several welcoming treats in the kitchen to welcome us to this home. We have a wonderful time and hope to return someday.

Great stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We are VRBO owners ourselves, so we can be critical of how a rental is handled. Let me say that Karin and Randy know how to do it right! From the time you open the door you see what great care and preparation they have made for a guest arrival.

The view of Lake Washington is incredible and the neighborhood is very safe and convenient to everything.

Karin and Randy have done it RIGHT!!

Peaceful get-a-way

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Bellevue Cottage very much. Our hosts were very accommodating with a lovely welcome basket, fluffy robes and even some breakfast food in the fridge. Karin has thought of everything. On the front porch were a couple of beach chairs & a cooler if we wanted to go to the beach, flash lights and umbrellas if needed and a very complete book of information. My husband and I wanted an easy casual get away and the cottage was so comfortable we just hung around and relaxed in the mornings , then off to see the area's beauty. After a long day of hiking we found a restaurant that delivered (from looking in the information Karin had" It was great italian food and enough for a second night. We wrote in the guest book that this was our first VRBO and the Bellevue Cottage set a very high bar. Loved it, and would book it again. thanks from Christi & Ron!!

beautiful cottage with an amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

My son and I stayed in this lovely cottage for 4 days while we toured some of Seattle's best attractions and I can't say enough positive things about this VRBO rental. We were able to cook dinner after a trip to Pike's market with the very well appointed kitchen and also breakfast when we decided to get a slow start to our day. The location was perfect for us as we ventured often to downtown and also to Redmond to visit a friend. Karin and Randy's attention to detail was very much appreciated!!

About Karin Peterson

We are a family of 4. My husband grew up on the Eastside. We met in Seattle and have lived on the eastside since 1994.

Karin Peterson purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Karin Peterson chose West Bellevue

The view and the location---Simply the best!! A separate cottage in a beautiful setting with views of Lake Washington, and close to the Bellevue Square Mall, Factoria Mall, and many wonderful restaurants.

What makes this cottage unique

Location that's convenient to everything ....along with quiet & peaceful views of Lake Washington. Beautiful water view and private, in a beautiful area, forested yet so close to the big city! Waterfront beach & parks are 1/3-1/2 mile, kayaks and canoes can be rented at Enatai waterfront park (1/3 mile away)!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have traveled the world staying in many different accomodations and this rates up near the top of the list!! Thank you for making such an inviting, comfortable and well-equiped spot for weary travelers. We have our daughter and her family nearby and it was wonderful to have such a perfect retreat so close to them. We sure hope to be able to stay here again!
