About the property

4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleep 14

This contemporary, creek-side vacation retreat, just 10 miles north of downtown Seattle, features stunning architecture and a setting to match. Victoria Creek babbles right underneath the outdoor living area!

Ideal for a group of friends who want to explore Seattle, then return to the tree-lined residential neighborhood of Northgate. Multiple Seattle bus lines stop just outside. And two bedrooms and 3 ultra-comfy sofa beds means our apartment can accommodate up to 8 guests!

This home has two separate apartment rentals, with one on each floor, separate entrances connected together (lockable doors in between). This listing is for the whole house, both units rented together (fits 8 people in the upper unit and 6 below) at an unbeatable nightly rate.


Inside, an open-concept, minimalist retreat awaits. Perfect for those who want to stay in a simple, beautiful space with lots of room for your luggage…not one that's full of someone else's stuff!

We don't even have a TV in this uncluttered space. However, our free WiFi is blazing fast and great for streaming your favorite Netflix shows to your devices. Pile into the ultra-comfy Jaxx modular sofas in the living area to read, relax, cuddle, and chat about your day's adventures.

At bedtime, these sofas easily become two queen-sized beds. There is a 3rd Jaxx sofa bed in the 2nd bedroom (instead of a bed) and the other bedroom has a queen bed. All told, 8 people can sleep here.

Right next to the living area sofas is a glass-top dining table for 4—the perfect space for savoring leftovers from one of Seattle's delicious restaurants. Or whip something up in the fully equipped, fully stocked kitchen. We even have a Vitamix Blender and a juicer! Stock up on fresh fruits and veggies and enjoy healthy, on-the-go drink.

Create an indoor/outdoor living space by sliding opening the patio doors to the balcony. Furnished as an outdoor living area with plush furnishings, this balcony is perfect for catching up over a bottle of wine. Trellis cover (and shade trees) keep you dry in a drizzle, and the creek runs just underneath the balcony!

Everyone shares the one bathroom, which has a tub/shower combo and a spacious vanity with plenty of room for all your products. Laundry room with new washer and dryer is shared between both levels of the house and can be accessed without going outside.


We designed this 2-bedroom apartment for guests who are here to spend time in our city. It’s a simple, minimalist (and gorgeously modern) space with plenty of room for your group of 6. Drop your bags, discover the city, then collapse in to a comfy bed at the end of the day!

The two bedrooms each have a queen-sized bed. The first has a large walk-in closet for your luggage and the other has a view of Victoria Creek. These bedrooms share a bathroom, which has a tub/shower combination.

The open-concept common area includes a super-comfortable sectional sofa that can become a bed and a contemporary dining table for 4. The minimalist, Euro-style kitchen, which is open to this space, has 2 electric burners (no oven, microwave/convection oven). Though small, our functional kitchen has everything you need to make a snack, brew a pot of coffee, or heat up your leftovers from your dinner out at one of Seattle’s many, many dining options. Laundry room with new washer and dryer is shared between both levels of the house.

Just beyond the living area is our covered patio beside the creek. With seats for 5, you can gather out here to read, nap, or discuss tomorrow’s plans. Victoria Creek serves as your light, soothing soundtrack!


Our location is made for exploring Seattle without battling downtown traffic (and city noise at night). Hop on one of the many bus lines that stop just outside and be downtown in a half-hour!

After you've wined, dined and discovered the center of Seattle, come back to Northgate. This residential area north of downtown is safe, walk-friendly, and boasts its own collection of attractions, including Northgate Mall (just a few blocks away form the rental). Or take a food tour of the world: nearby options includes Thai, Mexican, Ethiopian, Italian, upscale Mediterranean, and American comfort food, among many others!

About Galina

Project manager, dance instructor and a life coach, I moved to Seattle in 2006 from Russia. I love the city, and travel often.

Galina purchased this house in 2015

Why Galina chose Pinehurst

I bought the house in 2015. It was an old house with a pretty bad floor layout and not well maintained. I saw a potential in making it into a perfect place for me to live and rent. I did a full remodel top to bottom: upgraded the roof, the deck, replaced everything inside (plumbing, electrical, flooring, added a bathoom and kitchen downstairs, even moved some walls to make it into perfect two unit house) and voila! Everything during remodeling and furnishings was hand picked by me making sure it brings happiness!

What makes this house unique

The house has been fully remodeled top to bottom in 2015 in a modern style, so it's like brand new. Beautiful covered deck with outdoor sectional and bubbly creek underneath is perfect for outdoor relaxation. Modern stairway railing, lots of natural light, wood burning fireplace, minimalistic furniture that provides high flexibility in room configuration makes this a perfect place for your visit!

Great place, nice location, sleeps a lot of people!

  • 5 of 5

This place is .5 miles from Northgate mall and about 15 minutes from downtown Seattle. It's got 4 bedrooms with Queen sized beds, and couches that fold into beds, 2 kitchens, 2 baloncies, etc.

Overall it was a great place for you and a bunch of people to sleep. Has fast wifi for everyone, but no TV. There's a lot of bars/the Ram nearby to watch whatever game you'd want to catch however. Quiet area and you have no house on your left. Tons of towels and blankets provided as well.

Lots of space for family

  • 5 of 5

We booked this home to give our family a place to gather when tragedy pulled us together. We couldn't have asked for a better place. It was available on a moment's notice and Galina always got back to us quickly. The house was very clean and had lots of space for everyone to sleep. Design was pretty and simple and suited us well. There's plenty of parking space and the kitchen, though small, was all we needed. Thanks so much for giving our family a great place to stay!

Nice place, feels woodsy!

  • 5 of 5

A fun modern style house, 2 floors and lots of beds.

There's a nice stream running along the side and forested areas surrounding. Owner was responsive to our needs.

Misrepresented & inadequte

  • 1 of 5

You represented that the rental would accommodate the 14 people in our party. Wrong!

There were enough fitted sheets - but not top sheets and a woefully inadequate number of towels, blankets, and beds (and 2 of the so called "beds", were basically in the tiny kitchen/family room. There were only 4 chairs in this house, for 14 people! and the bedrooms were so small they couldn't accommodate a chair. The beds were very low to the floor and there was no place to sit, anywhere. It was 80 degrees F when we came in and the closed windows were difficult to open. The fan in the smaller 'bed' room was not working and that room condition prevented sleep. The adjacent bathroom (1 of 2 for 14 people, was filthy. You knew we had 14 in our party and that we planned on preparing meals. On arrival day you advised that the dishwasher was broken. Ridiculous! Further, you have black mold in the lower level (likely stachybotrys) and bugs, pretty much everywhere.

Your outrageous attempt to charge for a second cleaning demonstrates your opportunism at the expense of customers of HomeAway. We strongly recommend that you improve the conditions of the product offered or, accurately describe it and it's true capacity, in the offering.

We disagree in respect to your "cooperation". We make no response to your foolish financial expectation. You will not be rewarded for your misrepresentations.

Owner's Response: A lot of things in this review are untrue. I stated in house rules and pre-check in email that if guests need anything to contact me right away so I can take care of it in the timely manner. When guests checked in around midnight, they asked me about AC. I told them that I don't have it (and I didn't promise it), and my house doesn't really get hot, and simply opening windows should cool it down fast. I also notified them that dishwasher was not working as I was told about it by the guest who checked out that SAME day. I said I take care of it ASAP the next day if they need it, they didn't say anything. Next morning I got a very negative email saying that house doesn't work for them, having 2 baths is not enough and 4 people sleeping in the living room is ridiculous, they checked out and demand full refund, and if I don't do it they cancel with visa, fight to get the money back and write me the worst review ever, and that her husband is a lawyer. Tricia did not contact me about any of the issues listed in this review besides AC and didn't allow me to resolve them. Even when I got that ultimatum email, I stayed polite and professional: I fixed dishwasher that day, notified where to find sheets (I had more than enough), even offered to buy portable ACs, washed sheets and towels left on the floor, made the beds, sent an email addressing all their issues and offered to come back, and said I WILL NOT charge them anything extra for this additional cleaning/laundry. All I got is another aggressive email back with threats for negative review, and not acknowledging the resolutions. Statements in this review that are untrue: - I don't have only 4 chairs, I have 4 upstairs, 6 downstairs, plus couches and puffs for more seating. - bedrooms were so small they couldn't accommodate a chair is not true: downstairs master bedroom has a little table and two chairs. - I do not have mold and cleaning was professionally done that day, baths weren't filthy. - All my windows and a patio door have screens to keep bugs and mosquitos away. - I have more than plenty bedding, they just didn't find it nor asked me where to find them. I do not feel I misrepresented anything. AC was never promised. I have enough linens. Description has number of baths and sleeping situation layout. Pictures accurately describe the space. Whether or not the layout is comfortable is subjective and up the the guests to decide at the time of booking based on description and pictures.

Clean, simple, and nice location.

  • 4 of 5

House was well equipped, clean, and in a nice location. Some drafty cold spots in hallways, but rooms were fine. Very nice and responsive ownership. It served myself and my employees well for our business trip.
