About Julie Arnevick

Having lived on Lake Kathleen for over 31 years, we (Rick & Julie) have built 2 homes on the lake. It is a very quiet and safe neighborhood. I (Julie) grew up on Mercer Island and Rick grew up in Seward Park - Seattle. We have been in the real estate business for over 15 years working for Windermere Real Estate. Our 23 year old son graduated from WSU this past spring. Julie has been active in the Bellevue Rotary Club and was President in 2013-2014. We believe in giving back to the community.

Julie Arnevick purchased this apartment in 1991

Why Julie Arnevick chose East Renton Highlands

It is peaceful, quiet and safe. You can enjoy nature at it's best. It's fun to watch all of the wildlife activity or take a walk around the lake. We are close to the airport, Issaquah, Renton, Bellevue & Seattle.

It was a delightful experience!

  • 5 of 5

From the first glance of the lake to the last soak in the hot tub, my stay couldn't have been better! Julie & Rick are excellent hosts. My family really enjoyed our cookout on the deck with the beautiful lake right there!

Absolutely superb

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't have asked for a better VRBO experience. From coordinating with us pre-stay, to the snacks the left for us upon arrival, to anticipating needs we would have with our 8-month old, Rick and Julie really made us feel welcome. The rental was spacious, nicely furnished with new carpeting, had an amazing, unobstructed lake view, and was decked out with everything needed for little ones. Communicating with them before the trip, they had mentioned having board games (we love board games), but I was truly impressed with the collection they had that was perfect for a family getaway. My only regret was that we couldn't stay on vacation longer! We will absolutely stay here again - thanks for the lovely experience!

Wonderful, comfortable place, and great hosts

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here during a remodel project at our own home for a week, and were very comfortable for the time we were here. The daylight basement apartment, that looks onto the lake, is updated, has great natural light throughout, and very clean. Julie and Rick are wonderful hosts. They accommodated some early check-in/late check-out times that REALLY helped with what we had going on at our own home, and even left breakfast treats in the morning daily (which our kids ended up looking forward to as if it was Christmas).

Wonderful location and property!

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our two month stay. The kitchen is well equipped, the beds and pillows extremely comfortable, and the towels softer than a big brand hotel! We watched the eclipse from the dock, went to mount Rainer,the Olympic national park and several other places in Bellevue, Seattle proper and of course visited with our son and family. The unit is well equipped for children and we had our grandson there several times. Julie and Rick are very gracious hosts. Thank you for a most pleasant stay...we will be back!

Julie and Rick are fantastic and gracious hosts! The best we have encountered in all of our VRBO/home away visits around the country. They were available for any needs we had. They were quick to respond with any questions prior to our trip and when we were there. They offered many recommendations on where to go and what to do. It was our anniversary and the were so kind and generous, they surprised us with some celebratory goodies. This was icing on the cake and so unexpected. The property is beautiful and the views of the lake were amazing. Everything was superb. We would give them six stars if we could because they far exceeded five gold stars. Dakota their dog even greeted us when we first arrived, he was very sweet! We hope to return with our family and new grandson in the near future. This rental property is definitely a gem!

Best place to stay in the Seattle Area!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing location and an amazing setting for a getaway to the Seattle Area. Julie and her husband brought us treats everyday and after we finished racing a marathon we came home to a bottle of champagne to celebrate! Really nice place to stay! It was clean and we took the powered dock out for a cruise around the lake. Very relaxing after our race with a soak in the hot tub. I would recommend this place to everyone! Julie messaged us everyday to make sure we had everything we needed. Lots of space for all 4 of us to stay! I would stay here again.
