Metropolitan Market (a wonderful European 'experience'), PCC Market,Safeway, Starbucks, and the historic Admiral Theater are just a few of the great shops within walking distance. In addition there are also dozens of popular restaurants nearby to choose from.

Relaxing and quiet

  • 4 of 5

This home was just what we were looking for when we booked our vacation to Seattle. My husband and I surprised my mom with a vacation to see orcas and wanted something a little more private than a hotel room(s). This place helped my mom feel right at home as she does not travel much. The neighborhood was perfect. Taking the water taxi to downtown was ideal. The host of this house literally thought of everything. If you forget something, no worries. This home more than likely has it. We will definitely be back!

Wonderful little oasis!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was clean, cozy and very personable with lovely curated art and collectables from the owner. The kitchen was well stocked with all the items a cook likes to have on hand, including a BBQ grill. The back patio area was a great location to sit and read and enjoy the shade. The location was convenient to California Ave and to the West Seattle bridge. The neighborhood was very walk-able and we very much enjoyed exclaiming over which house in the neighborhood had the prettiest yard! Definitely a winner, we will be back!

Very Comfortable and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we've stayed and it is the perfect size and location for our family trips to Seattle/Tacoma. The neighborhood is quiet and located near groceries and restaurants, as well as easy access to West Seattle destination, the freeway or water taxi. The kitchen has everything our family needs for quick meals and the back yard is great for having family/friends over for visiting.

Beautiful, quiet, and perfectly located

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in this cottage, and loved every minute of it! The quiet neighborhood is convenient to all that Seattle (and W. Seattle) has to offer. Lori was incredibly thoughtful, and the cottage itself was comfy, cozy and the perfect “home base” on a rainy day.
