Overview

About the property

Bungalow, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Gorgeous, beautifully-appointed 1912 Craftsman bungalow in the premiere walking district of Seattle - theaters, restaurants, shopping and more shopping, parks and trails for walking and biking; close to bus lines to downtown Seattle, the Seattle Art Museum and Seattle Center and the Sound Transit trains; near the tulip fields and ferries to the San Juan Islands and historic areas north of Seattle; Mt. Rainier and Mount St. Helens are a day-trip; quiet, residential neighborhood with plenty of street parking. Relax in the sitting area out front for some quiet time under the weeping cherry, enjoy a short walk to one of the neighborhood theaters or restaurants (sushi, Italian, Japanese, Thai, vegetarian, fusion, pizza, etc., etc.). There's nothing you'll need that you can't find in Wallingford. The apartment is large and gracious with opening garden windows, which are visible to the right of the front door in the picture.

About Garnett Hundley

I live in the main part of this house - renting out the two separate apartments. I enjoy meeting new people and take great pleasure in being able to share this part of the country with others. There's so much to do here you'll have to come back time and time again to see it all.

Garnett Hundley purchased this apartment in 1987

Why Garnett Hundley chose Wallingford

I bought my house in 1987. Once I toured this neighborhood, I knew it was for me. The mother-in-law apartment was part of the house when I moved in - and has provided opportunity for 'sharing the wealth' all these years.

What makes this apartment unique

You'll be able to look out the back kitchen window at the lovely garden, close the curtains for a quiet and peaceful sleep in the bedroom, enjoy the bright sun and park-view from the living area. If the day is warm, open the divided-light porch windows and let the breeze blow in the scents of the flowers and trees that surround this charming property.

Delightful, charming, fun and cheerful

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful home. The apartment is clean and perfectly appointed. We felt so comfortable and at ease whether hanging out for awhile or coming and going in the neighborhood and downtown. The queen bed is incredibly comfortable and bed linens are high quality. Kitchen is well stocked and it was fun to find little ponchos provided in case of rain. Garnett has covered all the important bases to make this a great place to stay. Parking nearby is a breeze. This is a great place for two people. There were three of us for a few days. A small comfortable chair would be a welcome addition to the living room while others are sitting on the couch. Not a deal breaker at all. Heartily recommended, and I look forward to returning.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. AND, thank you for the suggestion of a "small, comfortable chair" - no one has asked for one before, but I'll definitely find the perfect, comfy chair to add to the living room. Thank you. Please come back whenever possible.

A peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our week in this lovely and historic home. As others have noted, the apartment is wonderfully quiet and artistically decorated. The kitchen has everything we needed to make basic meals at home. The bedroom is cozy and comfortable, and the sitting area bright and fairly large. The location was great for us, as first-time visitors to the city. We walked every day a couple blocks to the express bus downtown to see the sights, and we loved "coming home" to the beautiful garden and outdoor kitties. Thank you, Garnett!

A Thoroughly Pleasant Experience

  • 5 of 5

Garnett's place was as advertised: a charming bungalow in a walkable neighborhood. There are many restaurants and shops nearby, and bus stops are within 2 blocks of the house. The apartment was well-appointed and had everything we needed. We were able to cook a few meals using the fabulous produce we bought at the weekly Farmer's Market in the neighborhood. We wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.
