This modern home has all the amenities, a quiet location, and proximity to all that Seattle has to offer.Each of our homes has been decorated to pay homage to a fun and meaningful theme.

The master suite also has a balcony from which guests can enjoy a morning coffee while enjoying views of Lake Washington and the Cascade Mountains in the distance.Just down the the hall is a second bedroom, which has a queen bed, walk in closet, and its own and en suite bathroom. The laundry room sits between the two bedrooms, with side-by-side washer and dryer.The third bedroom is on the lowest level of the home, and it offers great flexibility. It is furnished with a twin over double sized bunk bed (solid and sturdy --- not just for kids!). This room has an en suite bathroom as well. This third bedroom offers direct access to the spacious yard beside the house, which is equipped with a BBQ and table for al fresco dining.Between the two sleeping floors is the main living area.

Stroll to the beach at Madison Park. Walk by multi-million dollar estates. Discover hidden neighborhood gems such as the farmhouse with horses in the yard and the home that doubles as an eclectic art studio and antique truck gallery. Take a walk through the fabled Arboretum to Lake Washington.Once you have worked up your appetite, enjoy the countless restaurants that Madison Valley ( and Little Paris and ) has to offer. In addition to French gems, try our favorite tapas restaurant or the best Japanese food east of Tokyo. Take your morning coffee in one of numerous bakeries.

All are accessible by car, bus (numerous bus lines a few blocks from home), or for the adventurous, by foot.If all of this touring (and eating) has you tired, pamper yourself with a visit to a day spa or nail salon. There are several of each within a few blocks of home, and we are happy to point you in the right direction.

HOPING TO RETURN!

June 2017

Daniel L. A terrific house in a terrific location. We felt much more like we were at home than at a rental house. Andy and Lynne were a pleasure to deal with and were very quick to supply a couple of items we discovered missing. Very much hoping to return!

MY SEATTLE STAY WAS THE BEST

June 2017

Rosario N. I booked for a place to stay in Seattle but the host to that place canceled to the last minute. I have to book for another one, luckily Andy and Lynne accepted my request. It was 7pm at night and was raining in Seattle. They had a very quick response and before 9 pm, we got into this beautiful townhouse overlooking the lake and good neighborhood. What more could I ask for? My Seattle stay was the best. If You are going to Seattle, look for this place.

CLEAN, WELL ACCOMMODATED AND GREAT LOCATION

June 2017

Tom O. The house was clean, well accommodated, and it has a great location just down the block from Madrona Playfield and the shops and restaurants on 34th Street. It was the perfect size for my wife, daughter, and I, with a nice open floor plan on the second floor including the kitchen, living room, and dining area. Andy and Lynne were great hosts--they were very helpful and accommodating. Due to water damage in our home, we needed a place to stay on short notice for the week, and the hosts could not have been nicer or more understanding!

PERFECT HOME, GREAT HOSTS!

July 2017

Henry D. The place provided the perfect sanctuary for our family when we really needed to rest and relax in Seattle. Close to shops and multiple restaurants. Our kids loved the proximity to the playground and also the lake to swim. The house was clean, well presented with plenty of character too. The hosts were great at communicating details about the house. Would have no hesitation in recommending this house and their services.
