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.

Beautiful home. Very well maintained. It was everything we needed. Master bedroom was exceptional. Basement was very relaxing. Nothing better than a warm home atmosphere on vacation.

Hard to leave!

  • 5 of 5
All these other reviews are the honest truth! We are particular about how clean, organized and well equipped a VRBO home is, and MacAllen House is special! The location as in proximity to downtown is great. The street is relatively quiet and tucked out of the hustle and bustle a major arteries . The view just a few blocks away on Highland is a Kodak moment not to miss. We like to venture out and then come back and cook, relax, etc. Often times cooking is a chore because the kitchen may be equipped for the equivalent of "urban camping" - not to worry, they have thought of everything. My only caution is that if you are driving, please be advised that the drive way is typical of Seattle city lots being on the narrow side. A wide Dodge mini-van fits snug. I would not attempt to pull a full size SUV in.

PERFECT FOR A GIRLFRIENDS GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
This beautiful home was perfect for our group of 5 longtime girlfriends who travel to a different destination location every two years. Seattle was our destination choice for 2014 and we couldn't have made a better lodging choice. We have been renting homes for our "girlfriends getaway" trips for many years and this home was among the nicest we've stayed in. The home is clean, comfortable, spacious, and well-appointed. The furnishings are lovely, as is the landscaping. Located in the Queen Anne neighborhood, it offered all of the amenities we were looking for and was in a prime location for the sightseeing in the Seattle area we planned during our stay. It offers views of Puget Sound and is close to downtown and Seattle Center (but far enough away to avoid the hustle & bustle). The home's owner was responsive to all inquiries, very helpful in providing restaurant and sightseeing information, and clearly wanted to insure that we had a top-notch experience. We rented a car and appreciated having a driveway to park in (since on-street parking can be a challenge). It looked like public transportation could be easily accessed, but we didn't try that out. I highly recommend this home!

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5
Our extended family had an exceptional stay at this beautiful house that really was a home away from home. We like to cook and the kitchen was equipped with everything you might need including a professional Viking stove/oven as well as outdoor barbecue, kitchen aid, cuisinart, 3 sets of dishes and more-very unusual for a rental property. Beautiful views, gorgeous huge master bath with chandelier and marble, lovely beds and linens added to the comfortable stay. We love to walk and were able to walk everywhere especially up to the Queen Anne restaurant/coffee shop area, the premier sunset spots, the needle etc.Holly was wonderful and gracious to deal with. I can’t say enough great things about this premier property!!
