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 Seattle

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.

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.

Comfortable and great location!

  • 5 of 5

This home was exactly what we were looking for. My parents stayed for two weeks and they were very comfortable. We were able to cook and hang out as well as enjoy the great deck and beautiful view. Would definitely have people stay there in the future. Rose was very responsive, informative and accessing the place was very easy, plus they had parking! And they welcomed us with a bottle of wine and chocolates!

Great Stay when visiting Seattle

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed a repeat stay here for 11 days while visiting my granddaughter in nearby Ballard. I enjoyed walking up and down the pretty neighborhood as well as the view of the Cascades from the living room and outdoor porch. The home is well appointed and comfortable.

More than you wish for...

  • 5 of 5

Once arrived we all felt like visiting a family friend's house. Everything was welcoming and there is no way to tell the place is for rent. House is bright, clean, offers lots of fresh air, addressing all traveler's needs and going extra mile. Five star location - close to... anything, at the same time - suburbia-like private. Have lots of options to bypass traffic when needed.

Good luck to all of you trying to rent out this piece of awesomeness on a dates I plan to visit Seattle next time.

I wish this small family business to prosper, great example of things done just right.

Enjoyable stay at Phinney Ridge (Seattle) Home

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed a week in this very comfortable and affordable home in North Seattle. The location was convenient for visiting with family in nearby Ballard and the views of the Cascade Mts., and Mt. Rainier were exceptional.
