About Samantha Pearson Clark

I have lived in Seattle for 14 years. I live downstairs, work from home, and am happy to answer any questions you may have or suggest fun activities in Seattle and the Puget Sound.

My family and I enjoy our free time exploring the city, attending cultural events, making and appreciating art, and roaming the Puget Sound region in our Westfalia and our sailboat.

Samantha Pearson Clark purchased this house in 2010

Why Samantha Pearson Clark chose Wallingford

I knew this was a great property when I first saw it from the street, and I saw it as home instantly when I walked inside. We feel fortunate to have a private and lovely apartment upstairs for visiting family and friends, and we are honored to share it with you so that more families make happy memories here.

What makes this house unique

The kitchen, dining and living areas open up to a balcony with French doors and a gorgeous view of downtown from across Lake Union. Also, we have outfitted this rental with all the comforts of home. We have made Thanksgiving dinner in the kitchen and have outfitted it accordingly.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wallingford getaway

  • 5 of 5

We’ve used this VRBO for two visits due to its location just a few blocks from family now living in Seattle. The view from the deck of downtown Seattle is great, a nice open layout of kitchen living/dining, there’s a well equipped kitchen, washer/drier, and the location close to coffee, restaurants and grocery, and it’s very quiet. Samantha is attentive to your needs and responsive to any issues or needs that can arise.

We Stay Here on a Regular Basis

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in the top floor apartment multiple times. When we plan a trip to Seattle this is the first place I look to see if it is available. Close to major sites, yet out of the hustle and bustle. We discovered a great ice cream place near by this time. (do not remember name)

Samantha has figured out how to stock this apartment to take care of all your needs. I highly recommend this place.

Perfect for comfort, location and views of Seattle

  • 5 of 5

The Wallingford Terrace turned out to be perfect for our visit to Seattle. We needed to be close to the university and in the neighborhood where my daughter is living. We were able to walk to several charming restaurants. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony drinking our coffee and enjoying the afternoon sun- with views of the city skyline! The home contained everything we needed to enjoy a comfortable stay.
