The dining room is is the ideal setting for wonderful meals and gatherings; the table expands to seat 8+. Our recently remodeled kitchen was designed and built by Seattle's published artist/designer Lynne White (all stainless chef's kitchen with nearly every amenity you need for your gourmet meal). Upstairs you will find our huge spa bath with heated marble floors (think toasty warm feet), a deluxe double shower and luxurious soaking tub complete with a chandelier. Sleep in our luxury linens on comfy memory foam beds.

And don't forget to watch the sunsets and the ferry boats crossing Puget Sound...


~the upstairs has 3 generously sized bedrooms (one ensuite with a huge master bath) plus another full bath and an area with a desk

~the main floor has a very large living room, a generous dining room, kitchen with eating nook, ½ bath and grand entryway

~ the lower level has a large, comfortable day bed, another flat screen TV along with hundreds of movies and an additional comfy couch. PLUS children’s toys, games, and books, and in a separate area, laundry facilities.

We promise you will love staying at our home (as the 56 reviews attest to) and as they say, you will want to return again and again.

Keywords: Luxurious 3 story home with wonderful water views and fantastic South Slope location. Ideal and easy walking to award winning restaurants and upscale markets. Walk to the monorail and take the ride down town… the perfect Seattle location.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What an amazing job you have done on the home. You have truly anticipated your guests every need!! The beds were amazingly comfortable, the towels were luxurious and the master spa bathroom is out of this world. I spent a lot of time dancing around the magnificent spa bathroom. The acoustics are great and the radiant heating is such a treat!

We used the WI-FI a lot to suss out different neighbourhoods and pull up maps. We also got very excited when we discovered that the stereo in the living room had an iPod docking station! I'm sure your neighbours will have a few tales of the shadows through the blinds. 7 stressed women, 15 bottles of luscious wine and great music - I don't think I need to elaborate!

The house is truly a jewel in the stunning area of Queen Anne. Staying here puts you in the centre of everything great about Seattle. You are litterally 5-10 minutes from downtown, Ballard, Magnolia, Capital Hill and the University Area but don't forget to take a stroll through the neighbourhood as it is truly a stunning area. My only regret is that we didn't book your home for longer.

Everything was tremendous. I kept pinching myself to keep present and as a reminder that it was real and not some wonderful daydream I was having. Everyone felt the same way. We would love to rebook for next year.

I am extremely particular about accommodation away from home and Holly's house did not disappoint. Everything was spotlessly clean and in good repair. We walked to the Seattle Center, Pike Place Market, restaurants, grocery stores, i.e. great location. The house is well equipped in regard to kitchen supplies, just like home. The linens and towels are all high quality. Holly promptly replied to all inquiries from first to last contact. I highly recommend this lovely vacation home to all and look forward to a return visit. Did I mention the views? SPECTACULAR! It is obvious that Holly takes great pride in and care of this lovely property.

Fabulous house in a great area!

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here for 6 weeks while working in Seattle. My husband and two young boys (3 and 5) joined me for the last 3 weeks and had a fantastic time. I do short-term rentals fairly often, and this house is the nicest I've stayed in - it was so well-equipped! Everything we needed, from scissors, to spare batteries, to spices in the cupboard - it was all there. The boys loved the finished basement, and we played just about every board game at least once. It helped that everything was in bloom in Seattle - there was a bush in the back garden that smelled amazing - Daphne, maybe? I slept in every bed in the house, and they were all extremely comfortable. High end linens and towels, and a gorgeous master bath. The area in Lower Queen Anne is awesome - about a 10-15 minute walk from the Seattle Center, which has amazing museums for kids, as well as theaters, ballet, and the opera house. And the buses run downtown frequently, although we walked a couple of times with strollers. At the top of Queen Anne are some great restaurants and shops, including a Trader Joe's. There is a high-end market at the bottom of the hill (10 minutes) that's more like a Whole Foods. We didn't have a car while we were there, and it wasn't a hardship at all. The hills are steep in that area, but not unmanageable, even for my little boys. I have another short job in Seattle in 2017, and plan to stay here again!

The perfect vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5
From the start of our booking process, Holly was fantastic to deal with, answering all of our question quickly and making the process as easy as possible. When we arrived we found the house to be even better than described. It was in a lovely area, easy walking distance to many shops, so well equipped with everything we could want (including items for our baby) and was very clean and well looked after. It was the perfect size for our group of 5 adults plus baby (and the friends/family that joined us for Christmas dinner!) and we would be very happy to stay in this beautiful home again when next in Seattle.
