About the property

1 Bedroom Cottage Overlooking Puget Sound And Olympic Mountains!

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, complete kitchen and cozy living room. Part of historic Seahurst neighborhood and within ten minutes of Sea-Tac airport (SEA). Enjoy the shops and restaurants of downtown Burien, or drive 20 minutes to downtown Seattle.

This darling cottage is your perfect home away from home. The space feels rustic and quiet while being part of a wonderful neighborhood and very close to the city. The view of the Sound and Olympic mountains is at times uplifting and magnificent. The bedroom has a brand new very comfortable queen bed. The kitchen is well equipped and has a new dishwasher. This is indeed a very special place!

I dare you to not jump barefoot through the garden and yard while screaming - 'Oh my god, this is amazing!' while taking pictures of the ferry boats and tug boats. I've seen it happen.

Our house, an older updated and restored log home, is on the property. We would love to say hello and hear about your travels. You will find first day breakfast in your refrigerator - probably a nourishing veggie and egg frittata topped with cheese for you to bake at your convenience. Our terrier Rowdy and large pointer mix Juneau can be seen playing and rough-housing together.

Our quiet neighborhood boasts a variety of mid-century home styles and our street in particular seems to be used by many for daily walks. We are right above the lovely Seahurst Park. Unfortunately it is closed this Winter 2013 for removal of the seawall that is there. Eagle Landing Park is just to the south of us if you like climbing stairs for exercise. Within walking distance ~ 152nd is the place to be. The small town atmosphere boasts several sweet choices for eating out.

A taxi is about twenty dollars from the airport. It would be a several block walk from the bus . The Burien transit center is on 148th near the Safeway shopping center.

Burien is well located for everything Seattle has to offer. Southcenter Shopping is ten minutes to the east.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for sharing such a darling piece of cottage life with us. The grounds are beautiful, view could not be proved, nor

could the privacy, coziness, or cleanliness have been one bit better! All was perfect.



Thank you,

great place to stay ! ! !

The setting of the cottage is beautiful with an awesome view of Puget sound.

The cottage has a lot of windows making it very bright and cheerful. The hosts are wonderful and go out of their way by supplying you with coffee, breakfast items and other amenities. I would definitely recommend their cottage to anyone visiting the Seattle area.

This place is the bomb

  • 5 of 5

We spent the summer months here in 2015 and were fortunate enough to be able to secure it for 2016. It's a charming corner of paradise. There's no place like it in Seattle...especially sitting in the bluff-side chairs at sunset. Owners are great people and the dogs friendly. We spoiled Rowdy, the small one, with daily treats so don't be surprised if you have a visitor on your doorstep.

This place is a corner of paradise. Incredible place to view sunsets.

  • 5 of 5

We didn't realize how comfortable you can get in 2 rooms....adequately equipped. But the setting is the big plus. Having access to a huge front yard , under gigantic trees, overlooking Puget Sound has been such a plus. We're here for 2 months and will really miss the place. Close to both of our children it's location has been ideal for us. Owners are pleasant, accommodating people. Two dogs are friendly and fun.

Relax in Burien

  • 5 of 5

This VRBO is exactly as described by the hosts. There is a great view of the sound from the yard and from the living room of the cottage. The cottage came with everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The hosts even brought over their grill for us to use for grilling some of that fresh salmon the area is famous for. They provided a breakfast of quiche and pastries, orange juice,and coffee from a local bakery for our first night. So those arriving late with no time to stop and pick up provisions, you will be good to go. This is a great home base to the Seattle but I would not say it is a place that I would come to stay for a 24/7 type of vacation. It's a nice quiet neighborhood. I highly recommend this place.
