Seattle, Washington

The space
"American Wonders" sleeps up to 25 guests!

This home has modern amenities, a quiet location with private outdoor space and tons of parking, and proximity to all that Seattle has to offer.

Enter the home on the entertaining floor. Here you will find a large, light filled living room with decorative fireplace, queen size sleeper sofa and loveseat, and plenty of room for games, reading, sipping wine, and enjoying the sweeping views of the lake and mountains. A wraparound porch is outside the living room. On the other side of the foyer is the dining area. We have put in a dining table with 14 seats. 3 bar stools are nearby, and folding chairs are provided to accommodate even larger groups. Just outside the French doors from the dining area is your urban oasis: an outdoor patio with BBQ, lots of dining space, and a small water feature. The kitchen is modern, with stainless steel appliances and gas stove. There is plenty of room to work and create fabulous family meals.

Ascend the stairs to the top floor, passing stained glass windows on the way. The master suite is furnished with a king bed. It has a walk in closet and en suite bathroom. The master suite features sweeping views of the lake and mountains.

Two additional bedrooms are upstairs, and share a full bathroom. One has a king bed. The other has a twin over twin bunk bed as well as a twin over full bunk bed.

One level below the entertaining floor is a floor with a second large social space. Here you will find another queen size sleeper sofa and loveseat. There is a second kitchen, as well as laundry facilities. This floor also has a bedroom with queen bed and twin over twin bunk, and a full bathroom.

One more flight down is a floor with full bathroom and 3 bedrooms. Two of the lowest level bedrooms have king beds. The third bedroom has a twin over full bunk bed and twin bed.

Note that the bathrooms of this home are "80s era" and subject for renovation in the upcoming winter.

Guest access
Access to the home is provided without a cumbersome lock box or key exchange. Instead, you will choose a 4 digit code, and the electronic lock to the home will be programmed work your code for the duration of your stay.

You will have access to the entire home, including garage parking for one car (and plentiful free street parking for additional vehicles). The garage is attached, and from the garage you enter the home below the "entry level" noted above.

Interaction with guests
Your hosts, Andy and Lynne, live a few blocks away. Unless we are out of town, we are here to welcome you and help you with any of your needs during your stay. We are happy to offer you advice for sightseeing, restaurant recommendations, and even some budget saving tips and coupons.
Guests will receive, in advance, our comprehensive homemade visitors' guide to Seattle, packed with our personal recommendations for dining, activities, and much more.

Do you plan to cook during your stay? By special advanced arrangement (depending on availability), we will fulfill your grocery list and have your home stocked for your arrival.

The neighborhood
Your hosts made Madison Valley their home in 2011… and haven't looked back since.

We love walking the streets of this neighborhood, and we will gladly suggest fun walks depending on your interests. 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 (“Little Paris”) 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. Or opt for Thai, pan-Asian, craft pizza, Tex-Mex or more.

Our home provides easy access to Downtown (Pikes Place Market, Seattle Art Museum, Seattle Great Wheel), Seattle Center (Space Needle, Chihuly Glass Museum), South Lake Union (MOHAI), University of Washington, and Capitol Hill. 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.

Getting around
We live a few short blocks from bus lines that will take you to Seattle's numerous neighborhoods (Madison Park, Capitol Hill, Downtown, Belltown, Seattle Center, South Lake Union). Queen Anne, Ballard, and Fremont are more easily accessed by car. Our home offers garage parking for one car. Street parking for additional cars is plentiful and free.

    The space and location for our event was fantastic and just as listed. It accommidated our extended family and everyone had a great time. The listing indicated there were 2 kitchens and for our Thanksgiving meal we had planned on using both ovens. However, the basement stove would not light and when I contacted the owner I was told that the lower kitchen was not operational. This caused an issue as our cooking for the family dinner began. If I would have been informed earlier we would have made different cooking arrangements. The house in general has great potential for big family gatherings. It could have used a better cleaning before our checkin.

    The house had awesome beds and plenty of them for our group of friends. The location was good, but the house does back onto a busy road that is loud. We also found some rooms could use solid window treatments. The towels were lovely, plenty of hot water, well equipped home. Overall it was great and we had a perfect weekend.

    Bathroom intrans&basement lots of loose sharp nails needs extreme attn. attn.

    We had plenty of room for early risers and late nighters. Rooms and floors made it easy for all to have a little privacy and gathering spaces. Lynne was excellent to work with and super responsive to any requests. I would not hesitate to rent from Seattle vacation homes again!

    This house was awesome! It was located in a really nice, quiet area that was close to everything. Downtown was only a few minutes away. The house was able to accommodate our large family with no problems. The views from the master bedroom cannot be beat. Great communication from the host and easy access instructions.

    Would stay here again

    Worked very well for our large group of families with kids. Furnishing is basic (as they say in the post, not as pictured), which did allow for lots of open play space. Nice large dining table. Lots of bedrooms. Very engaged and responsive hosts. Would stay here again with a similar group.

    Lynne and Andy were very thoughtful and responsive.

    The house is very well located, is big, has very good heater, easy to maintain, confortable for a large group.It has two separated living areas, that allow for different activities at the same time. The beds are confortable, the bathrooms big. the stairs that communicates the inferior levels are narrow and requieres some improvements. We were a large group, with many kids, and we ate at home a lot. The kitchen equipment for real cooking is very limited. Actually we borrow a mixer from a neighbor.

    Wonderful home
