About Julia Creighton

My husband and I are long time Washingtonians. I have lived here since I was nine. We have raised our family here and love the natural beauty of our area. We recently bought and remodeled our beautiful Mid Century Modern 1964 home and decided to list it as a furnished executive rental. However, you do not need to be an executive to stay here! We live just next door to our rental home so it's convenient for you as well as us. We are a family of artists and my husband John and I both have Etsy shops. I like to ride my horse and John likes to fish. A little more about me; in my past working life, I worked higher end retail and was assistant manager to a luxury retail brand. I also worked in a small Luxury hotel on First Avenue in downtown Seattle, and bring to my small business a professional customer service oriented view point. I love hosting folks from all over the world and I hope you will book a stay with us as well. I know you will enjoy visiting the Seattle area!

Julia Creighton purchased this house in 2014

Why Julia Creighton chose Sammamish

If you are contemplating staying in Sammamish, we highly recommend you do so. We are close to so many attractions, yet away from the hustle and bustle of the City. We are very close to Washington wineries, hiking, fishing, golfing, scenic drives, water sports, shopping, dining and of course a 30 minute drive to Seattle, or hop on a bus from the near by Park and Ride lot. The Seattle area is known for it's beauty and natural surroundings with all sorts of outdoor activities. There is a lot to see and do in the Pacific North West. Allow us to provide a sparkling clean, comfortable and beautiful home base for your adventures.

What makes this house unique

Do you love the open bright floor plans of Mid Century homes from the 50s and 60s? Do you love a warm fireplace to cozy up to with a mug of coffee and a good book? Do you like a quiet space to unwind after a long day of sightseeing? Would you enjoy a view onto green trees with a quiet seasonal stream and wildlife visiting? Would jogging the lake trail or relaxing on your private natural lake front beach, just three minutes walk away suit your fancy? How about period Mid Century furniture pieces and decor from the Mad Men era? If this all sounds enticing, we invite you to book a stay at our Mid Century Modern Furnished Vacation Rental House. We will be delighted to welcome you!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Summer renters please be aware our home has no air conditioning. We have many fans, and the house backs to a protected green belt, so cool air does travel down through the back of the house and cool it at night. We also installed a new metal roof which seems to keep temperatures cooler than in previous years during a 90 degree heat wave. Please keep this in mind if you are sensitive to heat.

Excellent home!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Julia & John’s home to attend our daughters wedding. They are very accommodating & hospitable! Their home is BEAUTIFUL and EXTREMELY clean with MANY extra touches that made our stay not only very comfortable but also luxurious! The house was supplied with everything we needed and then some!! They were very easy to work & communicate with which helped reduce any added stress that comes with weddings! They were fantastic hosts!! Our family appreciated the location being near many restaurants and shopping as well as their quiet serene private beach where we watched the sunset! We highly recommend staying in this beautiful home:)

Cool, stylish retro 60's home.

  • 5 of 5

Warm, clean and comfortable reto 60's home with all the modern conveniences needed. Close to Seattle downtown, but far enough to enjoy some quiet. Wonderfully renovated, with a great gas fireplace as the centerpiece to the open concept design. And having a separate office space was perfect to do a little work. The owners are close by and we're very attentive to all our needs. A great place for a getaway.

All the comforts of home!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Julia & John's home. Their home is very comfortable and welcoming. There was attention paid to every detail and Julia was a wonderful hostess. She was very responsive and very accommodating regarding a payment matter, and stayed up extra late to meet us when our plane was delayed an hour.

The house location was perfect for visiting Rainier, Cascades, and Olympic National Parks, as well as Snoqualmie Falls and downtown Seattle. It is just far enough away from Seattle to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, but close enough to get there in a fair amount of time.

We would definitely stay here again on a return trip to Seattle!

Owner's Response: It was so nice to meet you and host your lovely family for your tour of the Pacific NW. You were perfect guests! I did feel sorry about the smoke from all the fires in Canada, but you were such good sports about all of that. We would love to have you stay with us again in the future should your travels head our way. Julia and John
