Seattle is an Eco-Friendly city and has comprehensive sorting rules for recycling, food waste and garbage. There is a guide on the refrigerator for your convenience. We provide three separate containers for the different types of waste.

We have designed and furnished the unit with adults in mind. It is not safe or appropriate for babies or small children. Please let us know in advance if you have a pre-teen or teen you will be bringing along. Anyone under the age of 21 needs to be pre-approved for a stay. Also, free WiFi.

Again, owners live above, we are not noise, but you desire complete silence you may want to look elsewhere. : )

About John and Rachel

We have lived in beautiful Victory Heights (aka Maple Leaf) for 30+ years. We raised our daughter here, and love sharing our neighborhood with our granddaughters when they visit.

John and Rachel purchased this house in 1985

Why John and Rachel chose Victory Heights

Free WiFi. We are located in a green belt just above Thornton Creek. From the back of our home, which is the entrance to the Unit, you would never know you are in the middle of a busy city. If you are a birder, this is the place for you. From woodpeckers and owls to hummingbirds and finches, we have birds, birds, birds!

What makes this house unique

There is a patio outside the Unit. We are one block from public transportation and just minutes from the University of Washington. The unit is newly remodeled and beautiful.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for a great place to stay everything was great.

Look forward to staying with you again if we make back to your area.

Comfy,Clean,Thought of everything

  • 5 of 5

Rachel and John have created a wonderful place to stay! The two of us- were in Seattle for business and enjoyed this terrific VRBO. The apartment was perfectly clean,comfortable and so organized. Thoughtful details that were offered -free shampoos,lotions,coffee,and a book full of suggestions and directions. This charming 2-bedroom apartment had ample space and great to come to for relaxation after a long day of work! The extra high shower head was great too! The neighborhood is serene and makes you feel like you are in the country- greenery everywhere! We highly recommend it!

This property was fantastic!! Had everything we needed, it was clean, and modern.

  • 5 of 5

We throughly enjoyed our girls weekend away, the property was conveniently located near Nortgate Mall, was a short trip into downtown Seattle with great directions from owners that avoided the I5. And we even went to the outlet Mall. The kitchen had everything needed and although we only made one meal and breakfasts it was a delight to sit at the table in the bright kitchen. There were games to play and tv to watch. Two beautiful bedrooms that were very roomy. The 3 of us would highly recommend this property in a quaint residential area!!

Lovely, Quiet, Convenient

  • 5 of 5

We are so glad that we stayed in this spacious home with like-new kitchen, bath,and like-new living room and bedroom furniture. We were visiting Seattle relatives and it was possible to host them here for dinner! We could spread out, watch TV or sit on the shaded backyard deck with the big trees, bird feeders. We felt so smart to have found this lovely place!

Quiet and private

We we are in Seattle for a mother-daughter trip. The location is right off of the bus line and easy to get to the city or anywhere else we desired to go. Plenty of room inside and very, very clean. I have saved this VRBO for future reference when back in the city.
