"A very well kept, clean, light and airy, well appointed property in a nice quiet neighbourhood, with thoughtful and welcoming little extras supplied to make it a very comfortable and relaxed place to stay. "A home from home". Good sized rooms accommodated our party of 4 very well. Our 2 teenage kids liked having their own bedrooms and own space in the light/airy basement, with their own living/tv room (with netflix), kitchenette and bathroom. The property is very close to the upmarket/fashionable and new"ish" "University Village" for designer gear, modern restaurants and a good quality supermarket. Next door to Ravenna Park, with it's shady wooded walks/trails over high wooden bridges, trickling stream, green open space, playground and tennis courts - a haven for joggers, walkers etc. and bohemian eco friendly cafe next to the park. There are plenty of amenities near by. The property is approx 20 mins from the city centre by car. A good tip to avoid the car parking fees is to travel to the centre of Seattle using the new underground train. Catch it from the Husky stadium - (a 20 min downhill walk or 5 min car journey from the house). The house is approx 5 mins to Lake Washington - (very beautiful- great for watersports) 20 mins to the stunning beaches of Shilshole Marina (Golden Gardens Park) or Discovery Beach. Northgate Mall is only 10 mins car drive away. Good access to all roads. We would recommend this home. The only suggestions we can think of are, perhaps full length mirrors in the bedrooms, some beach towels (as we didn't want to use the supplied beautiful white towels for the beach) and another tv located somewhere upstairs to watch while resting from a busy day of sight-seeing (there was only one tv in the house and it was downstairs in the basement). All in all, a great place to stay."
