We have a beautiful bungalow directly on Sunset Avenue, with a direct unobstructed view of the the Edmonds/Kingston ferry, Puget Sound, and the Olympic Mountains. The house is directly in front of the Edmonds Marine Walkway park. The ferry and downtown Edmonds shops are just steps away (literally less than 2 blocks)! Sit in the fully enclosed sun porch and watch the ferries and Alaska cruise ships going by!
The first bedroom has 2 twin beds, and the second bedroom has a queen bed. An extra foldable mattress available upon request. We have a TV, DVD player, and couch in the living room. There is a kitchen with utensils, microwave, and refrigerator. We also have a washer and dryer. Parking is available in our back driveway for 2 cars.
Edmonds is located about 25 minutes north of Seattle. Enjoy the shops, art galleries, dining, and entertainment of downtown Edmonds. Also, enjoy the beautiful waterfront views, and then walk on the Edmonds/Kingston ferry to explore Kingston and the Olympic Peninsula!
Note that we do NOT have a barbecue grill. We do have wifi and basic cable TV offered by Comcast; unfortunately, that does not include ESPN and premium channels such as HBO, Cinemax, and Showtime.

My husband and I moved to the Edmonds area 10 years ago and fell in love with it. We still live here and plan to move this house to retire in when our kids move out!
The Owner purchased this cottage in 2010
This quaint cottage was very comfortable and had more supplies (i.e. shampoo, toiletries, cleaning products) than any VRBO that we've ever stayed in. The owner was excellent to work with and very quick to respond to e-mails/phone calls. We received our deposit back at the time of departure. The location is perfect for viewing the ferries, walking to downtown or hopping a train for a day trip to Seattle. We loved Edmonds & definitely plan to return.
Sunset Drive is a popular viewpoint for evening sunsets over the Puget Sound viewing towards the Olympic Peninsula. The location is walking distance to the Sounder and Amtrak Train, Edmonds/Kinston Ferry Terminal, and the multitude of restaurants and shops in downtown Edmonds and about a 15 minute walk from the Edmonds off-leash dog park. The access to transportation is also the downside of this property with trains running 24/7 making it difficult to achieve a good night sleep.
We are locals who stayed here while some construction was done at our home. This charming 1912 bungalow changed that annoying inconvenience into a wonderful vacation. The bungalow is perfectly situated to explore the best of our Northwest. Right by Puget Sound, it provides panoramic views of the water, ferries, ships and sunsets as well as quick walking access to the Edmonds Ferry dock (gateway to the Kitsap and Olympic peninsulas) and Brackett's Landing beach with its underwater scuba marine park. A block further brings you to the pleasant downtown Edmonds with its many excellent restaurants and shops. Exploring Seattle's sights only requires a half hour car ride or hopping on the train at the Edmonds Station. A few hours in any direction gets you someplace interesting--from the Olympic Mountains to the Cascades or Mt Rainier. All from this relaxing, beautiful spot!
The house had everything we needed. Our hosts were very gracious and flexible. The view is incredible and an easy walk to everything in Edmonds. We had an awesome stay and will definitely come back. Thank you all!
We needed a place to stay for a week near my son and wife and easy access for walking around a town with arts, shops, and easy walking to a marina. This absolutely fit the bill! The owner was gracious and helpful, the beds were comfortable, and the kitchen allowed us eat in when we wanted and do laundry throughout our stay. The negatives: heat was not on and we were cold in the mornings- there are a couple of space heaters and extra blankets, but heat would have been preferred. There is a train that runs right along the water and the horns blow at night, we did have some trouble getting used to this- this is noted in the owner's description. Overall we were very happy with our choice to stay here, the town of Edmonds is so much fun and has many cute restaurants to try as well as a wonderful farmers market on saturdays. We would definitely recommend a stay her and feel it was well priced.
Lovely owners! Great location! Beautiful view! That is where it ends. Family of four, two kids, one tv channel, all adult DVD's provided, no games, no books, no cards, one couch to sit on, freezing kitchen and bathroom, enough hot water for one shower one in am and one in pm, only one appliance at a time can be used, minimal house ware items for cooking and serving. Complained to owner and they responded immediately with a few things to try to make the Christmas visit with family a little easier. During the summer some of these things might not be an issue but when it is cold and raining and it gets dark at 4:00pm you need tv to watch and to be warm. We will not stay there again until I know many, many things have changed. There is a reason there are limited pictures.
