Breathtaking Views

  • 5 of 5

You can look at this home and say "Wow, look at those views" or "Nice looking place", but the photo's do not do it justice. This is a 5 star Retreat. Seriously the best view of Seattle. Myself and my 3 sisters along with my Mom and niece arrived to celebrate my sisters 50th birthday. It is Christmas Time and Ruta had the house decorated for the season. So warm and welcoming to enter this beautiful home with Christmas in the air and music playing throughout the home. The bedrooms are comfortable & the bathrooms are so beautiful...did I mention heated floors in the master bath? We used the Hot tub in the morning and again after a long day in the city. In the morning we heard seals barking thru the fog. At night we could look across at the city lights and marvel that we were really there. I have stayed at many VRBO (Home Away) and this one is at the top of my list. Very comfortable for us. My Mom (80) stayed in the theater room, it has a small bathroom and very comfortable couch, she doesn't do well on stairs. Her comments were she loved it in that room! The windows allowed her to look out "Over the World". We didn't rent a car but rather used Uber & Lyft with great ease. We enjoyed cooking and dining in this house. The kitchen had every pot & pan you could think of, and their serving dishes were gorgeous! We set beautiful tables every night. You will feel spoiled here for sure! It is truly an amazing home with wonderful history. Thanks so much for hosting us in this impressive home.

Perfect Family Gathering Spot in Gorgeous Alki

  • 5 of 5

We rented this lovely house to serve as home base for a family trip out to celebrate Thanksgiving. The house itself was perfect for our family of 6 with 4 bedrooms including a particularly fabulous master suite. Many spots in the house afforded spectacular views of the Seattle skyline as well as memorable views of Mt. Rainier (amazingly we had some clear sky mornings even in November!) We made good use of many cozy & inviting reading areas. And we all delighted daily sessions in the hot tub on the deck (loved the twinkling nighttime view of ferries crossing the water). Our boys enjoyed the comfortable screening room for movies & football games. The kitchen was well equipped to prepare & serve a full traditional Thanksgiving dinner. We also enjoyed long walks & runs around the beautiful Alki peninsula area. Easy 10-15 minute drive to downtown Seattle, 20-25 minutes to UW. Highly recommended.

Wonderful vacation getaway !

  • 5 of 5

I just spent 4 nights at this beautiful home. The views are stunning and they make you just want to sit and relax. There are many areas in the yard, on the two decks, as well as several sitting areas within the house to enjoy the view or curl up to read. I set up a family reunion with four adult couples and we were perfectly comfortable with each of the four beautifully decorated bedrooms. The Master bedroom and Master Bathroom are spectular! The house had everthing that you need for cooking in the kitchen with several places to sit and eat. We ate at all of them. The owners were very supportive and easy to contract when we had questions. We took Uber to see many different sites in downtown Seattle which work out beautifully. Highly recommended!!
