Property Details

Updated: Nov 4, 2014
Bungalow, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Serene and comfortable, this large 1920’s Seattle bungalow will provide you with all the comforts and amenities of home. Our art-filled house is ideally located in one of Seattle’s most popular established residential areas and is close to all of the city's attractions.

We strive to provide a restful and healthy environment for your Seattle visit. We are ecology minded and as much as possible we provide Organic and Sustainable products. This is a smoke free house.

Amenities

We have a 40” LCD Cable TV, DVD, Wi-Fi Internet access, and a phone for local calls. We also provide a selection of games and puzzles and bookshelves full of fine arts books and novels. Our All-electric Heating and Air Conditioning system, equipped with an electrostatic air filtering system, keeps the house cozy and comfortable all year round. The laundry facilities are in the basement.

Features

Sleeping arrangements include 1 Queen Size Bed, 1 Double, and 2 Twin Beds and twin bundbeds. The beds have Organic Cotton linens and water- and allergen- barrier covers.

The main floor includes two well proportioned bedrooms: one with a double bed and the other with two single beds. Between the bedrooms there is a full bathroom with pedestal sink and tiled floors and bath surround. Also on the main floor is a spacious living room with tiled wood-burning fire place and a dining room that can seat eight. There are hardwood floors throughout. You’ll be able to cook your meals in our fully equipped kitchen, where you’ll find a ceramic cook-top, dishwasher, microwave, espresso maker, full size refrigerator and an under-the-sink triple water filtration system. Start your mornings around the breakfast nook with seating for four.

The upstairs is a Master Suite housing a large bedroom with a Queen Size Bed and inviting sitting area adjacent to a spacious bathroom with dressing room, pedestal sink, and full sized claw-foot tub with a separate, tiled, shower. Plenty of organic cotton towels, local organic soap, and hair dryer are provided. A fourth bedroom in the basement is furnished with twin bunk beds.

Catch some Seattle sunshine on the large Back Deck or sit and watch the raccoons pass by from the Covered Front Porch.

Location

Located within easy walking distance to The University of Washington, University Village Shopping Center, Ravenna Park and numerous neighborhood coffee shops; you can enjoy the area on foot, biking the city via the Burke-Gilman Trail or take an express bus for a quick trip to downtown Seattle. There are two 24-hour markets less than a mile away.

Great home, great location, great owners!

  • 5 of 5
This is a great house and accommodated our group of 8 very nicely. Andrew and Sarah are great hosts. Their home is very comfortable. It was great to have a full service kitchen, back porch for morning coffee, four bedrooms, and computer and printer to print boarding passes. It had everything we needed and then some.

Parking in the driveway is tight, but it was great to have parking.

The only thing that we all agreed upon was that the recycling was a hassle. We come from a place where we have single stream recycling so we found most of our stress came from trying to figure out where each item was supposed to go. Sarah stated they could be fined if anything recycled went into the trash so we had that stress hanging over us all week. The recycling drove us a little crazy, but we survived!

I would highly recommend this house to anyone visiting the Seattle area. It's within walking distance to University Village and a park so the location was great. A drive to downtown was 20-30 minutes depending on traffic. If you stay here, take exit 170 off the I5 North, not 168 as the GPS and directions will tell you. Exit 168 gets backed up often, but Exit 170 never had an issue. It was much faster and didn't have the traffic.

If I'm ever in the Seattle Area again, this will be the house I choose to rent.

College friends reunion!

  • 4 of 5
We were 7 girlfriends (in our early 60s) who gathered together for a reunion - we do this once a year and each year we choose a different city. The house was really great for us. First and foremost Sarah worked with us on our arrival time as we were coming from all over the country with tons of luggage. She explained everything about the house and then left us on our own which is just what we wanted. We had to use the couch as a bed which wasn't ideal but that was our own fault for having 7 of us. We loved that the house was personally decorated by the owners-- it really felt like home. There were great restaurants nearby and University Village was a short walk away. The convenience of the park was also great. It was really warm (90 degrees) in Seattle while we were there and the upstairs got kind of warm-- the rest of the house stayed cool. Also, one of the girls reported a few ants in the master bath but that didn't bother us either. The house was super clean and also very reasonably priced-- we would recommend it highly!! As mentioned by others, our car was too big for the garage but we had no trouble parking on the street.

Owner's Response: We are glad that Martha and her friends enjoyed their stay at our home. Our intention is to have each guest in our house sleep comfortably in one of our 6 beds. We offer one queen, one double, two twin beds and twin bunks beds. We never intend to have our guests sleep on the couch. We always want our guests to let us know if they wish to add more guests to their reservation. If we had known a 7th guest was going to be added we would have been happy to try to make some special sleeping accommodations. We appreciate being informed about the ants. We will now be contacting an exterminator. Thanks for letting us know.

Great for family entertaining!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Bloomsbury House for a family Thanksgiving in Seattle. My husband and I shared the house with son, daughter-in-law and two grandchildren. The large master bedroom and bathroom upstairs is nicely separated and private, which made it very comfortable for more-than-one-family. There are two bedrooms on the main level, one with a queen-sized bed and the other with twin beds -- very nice for a family with young children, which they want separate, yet close. On the ground level (garage and laundry), a fourth bedroom with bunk beds would serve well for older chidren. The house is delightfully furnished and decorated, with many treasures and books. Other family members who stopped by to visit said that it felt like visiting us in our own home. Our grandsons were delighted with a nearby park, complete with "zip-line." The property is conveniently located, an easy drive to Seattle and close to the University of Washington, Greenlake Park, and the zoo. The homeowners were very friendly and helpful.

Perfect spot for our trip!

  • 5 of 5
My family (3) was visiting our daughter for her senior Art Show at UW and was looking for a place close to the U-district that gave us a great home base/starting off point. Bloomsbury met our needs perfectly!

A couple of thoughts:

Andrew and Sarah are gracious hosts... took time to welcome us and show us around the house. It's apparent that they love the house and want others to enjoy it too.

Location was superb... it was easy to walk down for coffee or shopping in/around U-Village... minimal traffic nearby... and any time we needed to get onto I-5, it was just a short drive away.

Accommodations were superb. It's hard to believe that anyone would stay in a hotel when Bloomsbury is available. The upstairs suite was spacious... no issues at all with any of the appliances, faucets, etc... Overall, it was very cozy and my family felt very much at home reminiscing and spending time together.

I could not recommend the property more highly. Enjoy!

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5
Staying in this lovely home was a wonderful experience! The home is in a quiet, leafy residential neighborhood, yet close to restaurants, shops, café and groceries. The owners couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating, and it is clear they have lovingly cared for the home. It is well-maintained, clean, and comfortable. There were so many thoughtful touches throughout, including an unexpected starter breakfast pack with the most awesome homemade granola ever. Would highly recommend, and we would definitely return next time we're in Seattle.
