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,

Sue and Emily

This cottage is perfect. The view of the Sound is amazing! Nancy and Tom did not miss a thing!

Everything you need is at your finger tips. It is very warm and welcoming. We had a wonderful breakfast waiting for us to re-heat

It was our first time visiting the Seattle area, which we loved. We wouldn't think of staying any place but this lovely cottage on our return.

Thanks for everything

Fantastic property

  • 5 of 5

I got the chance to stay in this lovely property for several weeks. It is in a great location, with downtown Seattle or Tocoma about 25 minutes away and very convient to see the sites. In a very quite location. But what really shines is the property and the view. The property is the absolute best. Lots of space and a million dollar view out onto the sound. The house has all you need with a well stocked kitche, a nice bath and confrontable bed. Sitting in the living room you have the most fantastic view out onto the sound. I could not have had a better stay and highly recommend it.

Perfect cottage

  • 5 of 5

The view, especially with the garden, is unbelievable. Really close to the airport (but no airport noise) and convenient to Seattle. Coming back from our excursions each evening was so great...peaceful as well as beautiful. The cottage has every little amenity and a comfy bed.

great place to stay ! ! !

  • 5 of 5

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.
