About Rose

We are a recently retired professional couple who enjoy traveling. We want to share our home here in Seattle when we are not using it. We are both urban planners, and we love our neighborhood here in Seattle because you can walk to just about everything you need - 15 or 20 good restaurants, a grocery store, local pubs, beautiful Greenlake Park, the Zoo, and a hardware store! It's a friendly, very safe, family-oriented neighborhood with public transportation to downtown about 1/2 block away. We are cyclists and Seattle has many great cycle routes accessible from here.

Rose purchased this house in 2009

Why Rose chose Phinney Ridge

We bought the property for all the reasons mentioned above. It's a manageable size, has a lovely garden, and a stupendous view. We often eat meals on our front deck whenever weather allows - which is about 8 months out of the year! There's a swinging seat at the top of the front steps.

What makes this house unique

You'll like the view and the walkability of the neighborhood. Also, there is parking for two cars in the gravel driveway behind the house.

Beautiful home! Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Rose and Tim have a beautiful home and the location in Phinney Ridge is convenient for everything that is special about Seattle. The outside space is lovely and we look forward to being able to use it when we return for another visit to our son and his family. Rose and Tim made the entire experience smooth and easy. Thank you!

We Loved It Here

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our time in this home, and we really appreciated the off-street parking. The deck view was beautiful and would love to spend time out there on a warmer day :-). We will definitely stay again our next time in Seattle if it is available.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Richard and Nan. I think we are going to get new mattresses for both beds this spring - so next time, perhaps, greater comfort! Have a good year. Rose and Tim

Rose & Tim's house was perfect for our family weekend in Seattle. The house is very lovely! It was comfortable, conveniently located and well-equipped. Rose & Tim were easy to communicate with, and kindly welcomed us with chocolate and a bottle of wine. Highly recommend!

Absolutely perfect.

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this place. The location was great to local restaurants, grocery store and bus to Seattle. Do not try to drive in this city. Worst traffic ever. The buses have a bus lane and are the way to go.

The view was great. Only saw Rainer when we first arrived but loved the windows and the upstairs balcony. All the rooms were lovely and we had everything we needed.

Rose was very helpful when booking.

Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Fabulous home in a great neighborhood - walking distance to great restaurants!

  • 5 of 5

The home was very open and has lots of windows to appreciate the view. Everything was there to make your stay enjoyable. It had easy access from the street and alley. The furniture was comfortable and the fireplace was so nice especially with the cooler weather. The decor was welcoming and it was as if you were in your own home. Besides all the great restaurants within walking distance there were two coffee shops, an ice cream place, and a neighborhood supermarket with a deli. There was a bus stop just up the block which was super convenient. The house manual contained easy-to-follow and detailed information. It was a great location and overall a great value and an incredible place to stay.
