About Theresa Jacobs

Hi, from Jeff and Theresa! We love Seattle and live in the neighborhood with our English Springer Spaniel, named Dublin. We're originally from Michigan and moved to the Pacific Northwest in 2012. We spend our spare time camping, hiking, paddle boarding, and kayaking.

Theresa Jacobs purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Theresa Jacobs chose North Beach-Blue Ridge

We lived in the beach house for several years. We enjoyed that it felt very removed from the noise and excitement, but was still just a short drive from everything we wanted to do and see. We found the home and environment truly relaxing.

I loved this rental! Great location to access everything Seattle has to offer with wonderful views one would expect of the PNW. Perfect for couples or small families.

Lovely staycation while house was on the market!

  • 4 of 5

We decided to get out of our house while it was being staged and sold in south Seattle. Wanting an adventure and to spend some time in a different area of the city (plus needing pet friendly) lead us to this quirky and fun cottage. We spent over 2 weeks at this delightful location. It had all that we needed. It is amazing how quickly one gets used to the noise and vibration of the house as the trains roll by. I loved waking up to the sound of seals barking. My teenage sons and I definitely recommend this cozy cottage.

Lovely cottage with an amazing view

  • 5 of 5

We had a relaxing stay at the cottage. The deck was a great place to sit and watch the boats and seals. The house is lovely inside, and we enjoyed cooking in the nicely stocked kitchen. Our 1 year old loved watching the trains- and they weren’t load enough to wake us up at night. Check in was easy. We’d definitely come back!

Beautiful views, cozy cottage, great location!

  • 5 of 5

Stunning views are obviously the highlight but also loved the cozy feel of the home! Loved that it was on a nice quiet street away from the hustle bustle of downtown, but also not too far of a drive!

Adorable cottage with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

This cute little cottage was the perfect place for our stay as we took our daughter to UW. It was so close to everything, but when we were there, we felt far away from it all! The view is spectacular any time of the day. It was so relaxing and our kids loved the modern ammenities and the view and the trains! It had everything to make it feel like home. Thank you for the fantastic stay!
