About Eyal

We have lived in Bellevue for 20 years. It is a wonderful place that has gone through tremendous growth. It has finally become a true Northwest modern city with lively downtown.

Eyal purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Eyal chose Bellevue

We live in a beautiful forested area that feels like a true Northwest with large trees and partial view of lake Washington. The cottage is located on our property. It's located in the center of it all, yet it is tucked away to ensure complete privacy with everything right around it.

What makes this cottage unique

You are in downtown Bellevue, yet it feels like you are vacationing in some remote Northwest island cabin. You get to relax and walk around the nearby parks yet, if you want to walk 20 minutes you are in the heart of downtown Bellevue. By car, everything is right next to you. Downtown Bellevue is 5 minutes, downtown Seattle is 15 minutes.

Cozy, clean, and very charming! Had everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was very comfortable and my husband and I enjoyed the close proximity to a variety of things while also feeling like we had a very private home to stay in. The owners provided everything we needed. Thank you!

Convenient and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

I was traveling to Bellevue for a conference- the cottage was a pleasant 2 mile walk to the Hyatt and just down the street from a neighborhood park and nearby to the Park & Ride, allowing my family to take advantage of the activities this great area has to offer! The cottage is clean, the beds super-comfortable, and the kitchen well-stocked. I especially appreciated Eyal's thoughtful and prompt responses to our questions prior to and during our stay. We were thoroughly satisfied with this rental.

Perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved this charming spot for our recent trip to Seattle! We have two young children and it was the perfect fit for us. The kitchen was great for morning coffee and breakfast, we were grateful for the washer/dryer (with two kids we needed it after a day!), the shower was fantastic and had amazing water pressure, and the small heating units around the house kept us cozy. Galit was lovely and very responsive during our stay. We would absolutely stay here again!

Beautiful surroundings, safe and private getaway for our family of three.

  • 4 of 5

My husband, son and I stayed here while visiting family, perfect size for us. Eyal introduced himself and was very nice. We felt very comfortable and welcomed. The rooms upstairs have plenty of space to have suitcases laying out and not being in the way.

Only suggestion would be to provide some ice trays.

Thanks for sharing your place with my family!

Everything You Need

  • 5 of 5

My husband, daughter and I stayed at the Cottage while we were in Bellevue for a wedding weekend. Great place for a small family -- it has everything you need. We only wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy the nearby parks and trails.
