About the property

1 Bathroom; 2 Bedrooms with Queen bed in each, large unit, newly remodeled

Nestled in one of Seattle's famous greenbelts, our recently remodeled private unit is located minutes from downtown Seattle, the waterfront and the University of Washington. Only 2 blocks to catch the local bus and Northgate Mall is within walking distance (about 10 blocks)..

This is a bright daylight lower unit with owners living above. There is a large patio for your enjoyment. We have easy, fast access to the freeways.

Our Unit is a large fully furnished 2 bedroom, 1 Queen Bed, 1 Double Bed; with a full kitchen. Maximum 3 people.

We live in a quiet neighborhood, and ask that you respect our home and neighbors. No parties, loud music or noise please.

No pets are permitted in order to provide a healthy space for future guests who may be sensitive.

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, there are normal household noises, 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.

Beautiful, Spacious and Cozy

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Seattle and what made it even better was having this incredible home away to come home to every night. Every single area of this apartment was amazing from the moment we walked in. Everything was new and updated. The beds were so comfy. It was equipped with everything you would need and have at your own home. It was nice to have a cozy livingroom to come home to at the end of a long day to relax and unwind.

We rented a car for a couple of days and used uber the rest of the 3 days and it was easy to get around either way. It was about 15min from downtown on uber. The house is close to a major street so ubers were there in less than 5 min.

We were absolutely happy with this rental and we were glad we didn't stay at an overpriced hotel downtown that we would have been crowded and uncomfortable in.

Charming, clean, and spacious

This place was perfect! It had plenty of space and felt like home. There were charming little additions like books and games. John and Rachel were the best hosts. The entire place was super clean and very accommodating. Felt like our home away from home!

Very nice, clean, comfortable, and roomy!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was immaculate and met our needs for our week-long stay, including the location. It was in a nice, quiet location and close to our daily activities. The apartment was well decorated, and all rooms were a nice size, including the bathroom. It was very roomy for two adults and a teenager. The queen bed was very comfortable, and the couch was comfortable also. There is a lot of information in the apartment regarding sightseeing, restaurants, directions, etc. John and Rachel were very nice and accommodating. Rachel was super helpful prior to booking, after we booked our reservation and throughout our stay. She answered all questions promptly, was very informative and knowledgeable about the area. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would stay here again if we make it back to Seattle!

Well maintained, spotless, and very comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I drove to Seattle from Wisconsin to celebrate our retirement from long careers in Nursing. And Gail’s adult daughter joined us the second day. We stay at this lovely rental for 5 nights. We found that the apartment was very comfortable. The beds provide a good night sleep. The kitchen was fully stocked but we decided not to do any cooking. The location was great, my daughter lived about 5 minutes away. The apartment was spotless, John and Rachel were great hosts and provided us with several good suggestions on Seattle. We were glad to have met their precious dog. All of us are dog lovers! I hope to stay here with my husband on our next trip to this special city!
