Beautiful home in the heart of a quiet Seattle neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for 10 days in amazing comfort and luxury. The property itself is beautiful and accommodating. If you want an opportunity to stay in a quintessential Seattle home, this is the place for you. The neighborhood is close to University District and avoids most of the main traffic of Seattle. The rental is the beautiful furnished basement suite of the hosts property. The entrance is in the backyard which should be featured in a magazine. Beautiful bonzai trees and a small garden of fresh vegetables fill the yard. My favorite part of the property is the wisteria canopied pergola with a gas fire table. Great way to enjoy the afternoon with a book and a glass of wine. The living room is comfortable with HDTV and smart remote. The kitchen is beautiful marble countertops and is very charming. Comfortable queen sleep number bed and access to washer/dryer. Couldn’t have asked for a better stay.

simply beautiful

  • 5 of 5

This is by far the nicest in-home rental I have ever enjoyed. The living room is exactly as cosy as pictured, and the kitchen is actually larger. We had friends over to dinner, and the table unfolded to accommodate all of us. It was a cold week in early spring, so we loved walking around the neighborhood to see all the flowering trees, and we also loved coming back to lounge by the fire. Our 6' tall family also appreciated the high ceilings! Will definitely stay there again next time we're in Seattle.
