A walk-in, daylight basement with its own two entrances, a beautiful kitchen with Mexican tiles, and all the small and large appliances you could desire. There are six windows so the apartment is sunny and bright. The shaded patio overlooks a professionally landscaped garden with flowers and fruit trees. There is a separate bedroom with a queen-sized bed and its own entrance. Part of the living room can be closed off to create a second bedroom. This has a love seat that makes into a bed and a day bed, both of which my adults guests have found to be comfortable. The bathroom has a walk in shower with no barrier. There are no stairs to climb either to enter or use the apartment. You have access to the main floor which has a deck with a stunning view of Puget Sound. Within an easy walk are tennis courts, a playground used by neighborhood families, and Richmond Beach Park with access to the Sound. Both parks have gorgeous views of the Sound. Seattle is an easy drive away. Some guests have used the buses and found them to be convenient. The bus stop is only a couple of blocks away. There are good restaurants within a walking distance as well as a library. Internet access, Hulu, Amazon Prime and Netflix are included. For children I have a high chair, a pack and play, soft toys, books, and many other toys.
Here are some quotes from my guests.
Laura's "beach house" - as my kids called it - was perfectly situated for us. While a bit of a drive from the freeway exits, Richmond Beach is so pretty and private. Laura's place is a lovely daylight basement apartment with a great view of Puget Sound and 4 minutes drive to the Beach. There is a great playground up the street at the library and another at the beach. Streetsaria Pizzaria nearby was a fun dinner out nearby but otherwise we happily prepared all our meals in the well equipped kitchen. Laura's collection of books, China, music boxes, and linens was interesting in every way. We appreciated the extras like having milk, bread and butter awaiting us and earl Grey tea! Thanks so much.
if you want to feel like at home and hotel as well, staying with Laura will satisfy both your goal. the house is delicate where you will have a great seaview. the location is convenient for the public transit and walkable distance to saltwater park which is the best thing i like to do with my kids. and there are lots of choices for food like pizza. thai food and mexican and Japanese sushi. for shopping, you will find fred mayer, QFC, mercy etc. Laura is a wonderful lady who is warm and generous and thoughtful. her house will be my home forever as i come to seattle again.
Had an absolutely wonderful stay! The apartment was beautiful and so cozy! From the gorgeous linens and decorative dishes, each room had such unique little touches! Beds were all so comfortable and perfect after a long day of exploring. The family members I was with haven't stopped talking about how great of a place this was to stay! Would highly recommend! Nice, quiet neighborhood and great views! Easy drive to Seattle as well! Enjoyed the calmness of being out of the city but still having easy access. Laura was very accommodating for our late arrival as well! Thanks again! Hope to be back sometime soon!
