Great accommodations for our family

  • 5 of 5

This was a great vacation home. The beds are comfortable. The home is clean. There are plenty of cool restaurants and coffee shops nearby. The beach is small block away. I loved taking the free bus to the water taxi which dropped us off right on the waterfront. Minutes walk from Pike's Place Market and the Aquarium. Seattle is a great place to visit. Wayne is super helpful.

One of the BEST!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 5th VRBO we've stayed in, and it proved to be one of the best. Wayne's cottage is simple, quiet, clean and comfortable. Wayne was typically right next door, or just a text away. He was knowledgeable of the area and helped with anything we needed. The location is incredible, you get the beauty of Seattle, without the hubbub of the busy city. The view of the Seattle skyline, or the mountains, is a beautiful view from the beach in the morning, or evening! A 10 minute ride across the bay via water taxi, links you to downtown Seattle and all it has to offer. Our morning started with a walk less than 2 blocks., straight down to the beach, local shops & eating establishments. Starbucks is only 160 steps from the front door, but I recommend taking a few more steps down to Top Pot doughnuts, what a treat! Bikes are abundantly available to rent along the beachfront, and a ride along the bike path is a must do!

UBER drivers are abundant and all of ours did a great job, prompt & courteous. Our UBER drivers took us into Seattle and to the airport, they navigated the traffic very well. Our family will stay again if we are ever back in the area! Thank you Wayne for a great start to our vacation!

Nice location, good price, plenty of room.

  • 3 of 5

Picture of premises seems to be from quite some time ago. Couches seemed pretty outdated and worn. TV's have little tricks that owner will tell you about to operate. No washer and dryer as stated. Hardwood floors need attention, no AC, no parking space. House was clean, however very obvious that house was a DIY fixer upper. House had adequate space and cheaper than a motel. You certainly had to get information from locals about getting to Seattle itself and where and when to catch the water taxi. House is about 2 blocks from the beach itself, and many places of business were not open. Maybe because of it being the first of the season. Feel that the extra room upstairs could be put to better use. Owner has many quirks that he will tell you about when you check in. :)

Owner's Response: There is a washer and dryer, so I'm not quite sure what the guest is talking about. There is a dedicated parking space also, so again I'm not sure why the quest says there is not a parking spot. Almost none the properties in Seattle have air conditioning, it is not listed in the listing that it has air conditioning. The review says it's two blocks from the beach, when in actuality it is one block from the beach. I almost think this guest has mistaken my house for a different property. As far as businesses not being open, there are close to 15 restuarants within 3 blocks of the house and they are almost always open. Again, it's like this person stayed in a different neighborhood at a different house. Please look at all of my other reviews.

An adorable, comfortable house, very convenient!

  • 5 of 5

This house is a very short walk to Alki beach in West Seattle, and many restaurants and shops. Also it is a short walk to the free water taxi shuttle; the water taxi is 10 minute ride right to downtown. Grocery is about 1 mile away.

The house has all you need-well-stocked kitchen, beds are quite comfortable, nice television set up. The back courtyard is spectacular-beautiful wisteria blooming, and the smell of the lilac bushes was heavenly.

And Wayne is very attentive. He knows what he is doing! Thank you so much, Wayne! We will remember this place if we come back!

Prime Location

  • 5 of 5

we came in from California and this was a great location for a vacation. just a block from the waterfront where there were plenty of restaurants and bars to try. we hit 4 in the same day as we wanted to try all of them. LOL

the house is very spacious and clean and had everything needed for your stay. we absolutely loved the master retreat downstairs.

this location is a short drive to the downtown Seattle area for Pike's Market, the Mariners or Seahawks games or even to attend a play. there is so much to do there.

Wayne was very friendly and quick to respond to any and all of our needs. would definitely stay here again
