Could not have been better!

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful home was perfect for our family of four, including a 7-yr-old and 2 college-aged kids. It was exactly as described in words and pictures. The location is perfect! Close to everything! Driving into Seattle was a piece of cake! The local area was happening, fun, plenty to do and see. Golden Gardens is not to be missed! Taqueria Tequila was great too! We loved everything about the house: cozy, nicely decorated without being pretentious, clean, comfortable for everyone, all the amenities we wanted. We would definitely recommend this home to a friend! Tim was very accessible and his suggestions were always right on! After trying a couple of his ideas, our mantra became, "If Tim suggested it, we're doing it!" We hope we'll be able to return! Thank you, Tim and Pam!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five (three teenaged boys) found this house perfect for our week-long stay in Seattle. Between the two bedrooms upstairs, the foldout leather futon in the den and the couch in the living room, each son had his own place to sleep. It's a great area to stay, a very happening location. So many things to do very close by, from great restaurants (pizza, sushi, you name it -- you can walk to Bluebird Ice-cream, one of the best ice cream places in Seattle) to Univ. of Washington, the waterfront in Ballard (fish ladder, great night-time beach scene at Golden Gardens -- great tip, Tim! to beautiful views of the city just over the bridge in Queen Anne (Kerry Park -- we went there at night and during the day). It took us 15 minutes or less to get just about anywhere in the city, even West Seattle (kayaking) was a quick drive). And it's a great jumping off point for hiking in the cascades. Tim was very helpful with suggestions and insights (our boys wanted to go shopping for shoes, etc., and Tim had some great nearby ideas). We had a wonderful week and were very happy we picked your place to stay, Tim and Pam. Thanks for the hospitality!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words and thanks even more for staying with us. It's always way more fun to work with guests that are interested in seeing the area and doing things and your family certainly fit that description. To us, that is really what the VRBO community is all about. The communication was terrific and you guys left everything just as you found it and we truly appreciate that. Hope to see you on your next trip to Seattle! Tim and Pam

Excellent hospitality

  • 5 of 5

Me and a group of friends went to Seattle to watch some baseball games on the weekend. We chose this place to stay instead of booking a hotel room and it was the best decision we ever made. Amazing location and exceptionally clean residence. Would highly recommend this house for anyone staying in Seattle with a group.

great location....not well maintained

  • 2 of 5

It is a great location with regards to walking to zoo, bus stops and such. For the price, I expected a much better kept place. The lawn was at least knee high, the grill was pretty dirty, the TV stopped working and there were no instructions regarding the remotes, which if you are presumably from out of town wouldn't know what is what.

It worked and the inside was clean, I expected a nicer place for the amount.

Charming Phinney Ridge House

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family of 4 (2 young children). Bedrooms are on the second floor with a fairly steep set of stairs, but there is a safety/baby gate if you need it. If you're up for a hike up the hill (pushing a stroller it was a good workout!), it's walking distance to the zoo, and there are plenty of cute restaurants, shops & playgrounds in the area. A great option for visiting Seattle without the headache of the downtown area, but still an easy drive to Pike's place Market etc. It's in a residential area so you get a taste of living in Seattle without feeling like too much of a tourist. The owners were very helpful, and texted when we arrived to make sure we had everything we needed.

Owner's Response: Rebecca and her family spent a long weekend at our house and were terrific guests. Travelling with her husband and two young kids, it was clear they wanted to have fun in the area and by communicating their specific situation, we were able to point them in all the right directions so they'd have a blast! So glad they were able to take advantage of all our family friendly house/neighborhood have to offer and we'd welcome them back in a heartbeat.
