Hope to be back!
Our accommodations met our every need. The rental was very clean with a kitchen well prepared for cooking & dining. The sleeping & bathing accommodations were comfortable & restful. The rental was easy to access & private. The neighborhood was quiet with nice restaurants & shops within walking or driving distance. Green Lake is a perfect place for walking, running, or biking. We did not access the public transportation but it was available. The rental owner was kind & helpful. We hope this rental is available on our next visit to Seattle.
Marian and Peter were great to deal with. Property was perfect for us. Couldn’t have asked for anything more. Very nice inside. Easy walk to Greenlake and easy access to freeway for short drive downtown. Highly recommend.
clean, comfortable, and very well stocked. Marian and Peter are wonderful. Loved being able to park in the driveway.
Nice place in charming neighborhood
My wife and I were pleased with our first VRBO experience. The interior was very nicely furnished and the kitchen was modern and had everything we needed. The small back yard was pleasant as well. Being able to park off street and not having go up any stairs was also a big plus for us.
The Green Lake area is very charming. It was only a 1/2 mile walk to the lake but we could also drive as parking was not hard to find.
Everything you want when your away from home...comfort, cleanliness, Location!
Perfect in every way....and I am a Vrbo pro......
This rental was EXACTLY what I needed. This trip I traveled alone but a couple or small family would be as comfortable here as I was. I travel an average of five months a year. I use VRBO all over and am somewhat of a spoiled traveler and I was pleased. Happy. Safe. Comfy.
This spot is designed very well to utilize the small space without feeling SMALL. The kitchen had everything needed to cook a good meal. The king bed was comfy, the bathroom spacious, the small landscaping was pleasing and the owners were as nice and down to earth as you could hope for.
Even though I would classify this as a casual rental I whole heartedly give it 10 out of 5 stars. I will travel to Seattle for 4 nights once a month, two more times this summer and regret this unit is not open for my other my dates. They have repeat travelers and I know why.
Book while you can, you won’t be disappointed. You will be comfortable, in a great location, an eclectic authentic Seattle neighborhood with easy access to everything. Oh yeah, tell them Peggy sent you. Grin
Peggy, we're looking forward to seeing you again, perhaps next year. Thank you for writing such a sweet review. Have a great summer and enjoy your visits to Seattle!
***green lake / wallingford*** is the best neighborhood in seattle! Green lake is seattle’s most beloved park. Its expanse of water and green space in the center of a dense urban neighborhood draws thousands of people daily from all over the city. The park serves as a natural preserve for hundreds of species of trees and plants, as well as numerous birds and waterfowl. The newly reconstructed 2.8-mile path around the lake provides a perfect recreational spot for runners, bikers, skaters and walkers. Many others use the athletic fields or visit the park for boating, picnics and swimming. Green lake boat rental offers paddle boards, kayaks, canoes, pedal & row boats and sailboats. Your children can enjoy the several playgrounds near the cottage, one of which is just 2 blocks away. On a hot day, head over to the wading pool or beach at green lake. The cottage is a ten-minute walk to several restaurants: * tangletown zoka coffee shop -- a great spot for hanging out * hiroki specialty desserts -- yum! * elysian brewing -- an intimate brewery-bistro * burgundian bar -- a large selection of beers, a full-service bar, and seasonal food menu * himalayan sherpa house restaurant -- authentic dishes of nepal, india, and tibet * kisaku -- a neighborhood sushi restaurant * mkt -- contemporary american fare with a dedication to northwest products * diggity dog hot dog & sausage co. -- fun! * mighty-o donuts -- homemade from scratch * latona pub -- big selection of beers on tap, delicious food and sometimes live music * krittika’s -- great thai cuisine and noodle shop * the dish café -- simple, wholesome food for breakfast and lunch * the butcher and the baker -- very popular for brunch of baked goods and meat * tsui sushi bar -- a new sushi bar in the neighborhood We're a 20-minute walk to the Wallingford neighborhood and 45th st with 30 more eateries.
