The space This spacious house is a single family home with 7 bedrooms. The front door of the home opens to the living and dining area. The living room has a 50" tv (cable and DVD) and queen sleeper sofa that is actually comfortable to sleep on (we use the best mattress available so no one gets a sore back!). There is also a decorative fireplace. Open to the living room is a dining area that has a large table with 14 seats. The table can expand, with folding chairs for additional guests. This floor features a full bathroom and three bedrooms. Two of the bedrooms have king beds, and the third has a twin over queen bunk bed, along with a twin trundle beneath the bed. Make your way downstairs to the lower level of the home. Here, you will find a bonus kitchen --- perfect for those preparing a large feast. There is also a second living room with 50" tv (cable and DVD) and another comfy queen sleeper sofa. There are two bedrooms on this level. One has a king bed, and the other has two queen over queen bunk beds. The two bedrooms share a full bathroom. The lower level is also home to the laundry facilities. One level above the main (entry) floor are two additional bedrooms. One has a king bed. The other has two queen beds. These two bedrooms share a nearby bathroom. The backyard of the home is set up with a BBQ and seating for outdoor meals! The home is equipped with window air conditioners in the two bedrooms on the main floor.

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 This 7 bedroom home is central to everything Montlake, Madison Valley, Capitol Hill and Central Seattle have to offer: great restaurants, parks, hiking, supermarkets, day spas, and more. Your hosts made this neighborhood their home they first settled in Seattle ... and haven't looked back since. We love walking the streets of this neighborhood, looking at beautiful old houses and wandering through the fabled Arboretum to Lake Washington. Once you have worked up your appetite, enjoy the countless restaurants that Madison Valley ("Little Paris"), Madrona and Capitol Hill have 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 nearby and we are happy to point you in the right direction.
