Property Details

Updated: Sep 25, 2014
2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath (Sleeps 4-6)

Book your next Seattle stay in a 1930's classic family home that has been loved and cared for by 4 generations! This charming house is fully furnished, has a lot of personality and artistic charm; an elegant and relaxing family room, two comfortable and tastefully decorated bedrooms, a classic breakfast nook, a fully equipped kitchen and a gorgeous and large outdoor stone patio, with a built-in fire pit, BBQ gas grill and outdoor lounge and dinner seating.

This amazing house is ready to be your home away from home. The cottage feel and the art deco style of this cozy house would be the perfect place to retreat during your visit to the bustling Seattle metropolitan area.

Location: The house is also conveniently located close to many Seattle favorites. All while being off the main circuit, in the quiet and private neighborhood of North Matthews Beach, which is just blocks from the beaches of Lake Washington and only a 10-15 minute drive to the UW campus, University Village shopping, Children’s Hospital and Downtown Seattle.

The house is also just minutes from the popular Burke Gilman Trail. This paved bike and jogging trail is detached from most roads and winds its way from the north end of Lake Washington to just north of Lake Union; connecting you to other parts of North Seattle such as the U-district, Wallingford, Fremont and Ballard.

Extra Sleeping Accommodations: We would also like to accommodate larger families, so we provide an extra bed to be used in the living room (a very comfortable, adjustable air mattress) and extra linens for the air mattress and couch, which can also be used as a bed. Upon request, we will have a pack-n-play available for little ones as well as a basket of toys for their stay.

Nearby Attractions: Minutes away; public beach access at Matthews Beach Park.-Lake Swimming with a floating dock and diving boards.

10 min. walk to “Beaver Pond”, a local water conservation estuary.

15 min. walk to Meadowbrook community center with adjoining children’s play park and athletic track at Nathan Hale High

About the Owner

My husband, Rob and I grew up for the most part in the greater Seattle area. Rob actually spent much of his childhood in this home as it was his grandparent's house when he was a child. I grew up a Navy brat traveling around the world all the way from Italy to Texas until we landed in Port Orchard, WA when I was 13 and I haven't left since! Our paths crossed after college and we eventually were married and moved into our Matthew's Beach house. It is our great pleasure to be able to share this house with you, as it has been in our family since the 1930s. This home has brought us so much joy and we hope that it brings you much of the same joy, but also rest, relaxation and a home away from home.

We had a wonderful stay this home while we visited Seattle. It's a great location yet easy to get to downtown, and in a wonderfully quite neighborhood; large enough to accomodate our family easily - the single bathroom was more than sufficient. The host was fantastic and very accomodating and overall it was a great stay. We would definately stay again.

Great location, great house, great time in Seattle

This was an excellent house for my family. We optimized the property with six of us in there, which was a little tight, especially with just one bathroom, but on vacation it didn't really impact us negatively. The appliances are great, well stocked with dishes, outdoor space excellent, a little north of downtown, but still close to just about everything we wanted to do.

No regrets. Absolutely charming!

We had a wonderful stay. House was true to the listing info and pictures. It's very cozy, furniture is very comfortable. Very easy to just put your feet up and relax. Very clean and nicely decorated. Owners are easy to work with and they made sure the house was well stocked. Lots of extra linens, blankets, etc. Very close to anything you'd want to do in Seattle. We shopped at nearby University Village which is always fun. We like easy access to activity but also like coming back to a quiet neighborhood. This totally fit the bill. We would have liked a separate dining room area but made do. We would stay again and would recommend to friends.

Great location and charm

There was a strong odor when we arrived of possibly some previous animal stay which seemed to dissipate with several days and burning of several Glade candles. We had hoped to have one person stay in the back bedroom but the heat vent had a significant rattle and we were there on cold days so the furnace was doing a good job. The tight bathroom was a challenge for us who use contacts with no place to set things down. Since we have done some renovations we observed that some re-doing of the flooring and some paint in the kitchen would make a huge difference. Wi-fi and TV worked well. I wished for a better can opener and a soup ladle. In spite of all, I liked the place.

Lovely stay

This well-maintained cottage provided a pleasant, comfortable base in North Seattle. It is located in a quiet residential neighborhood yet minutes by car to shopping and restaurants and easy access to roads that lead into the city. Although not huge, the layout makes the cottage feel roomy and would be perfect for a family of 3 or 4. Would definitely recommend!

Comfortable, cozy and quiet home

We were having our floors refinished about 2 miles from this vacation rental, which is, at best, a very trying experience. The absolute saving grace for the hectic week was this wonderful "home away from home" where we stayed. Liz and Rob were very accommodating and direct with us, and we felt like we were staying in a well-equipped, very charming home. It is in a nice neighborhood in North Seattle on an incredibly quiet street. It is convenient to many places in Seattle, especially if you are interested in the University of Washington area. There are ample linens, bed covers, quilts, pillows and the kitchen is fully equipped with all necessary dishes, pots and pans, and utensils. There is also very strong wifi in the house for accessing the internet on a smartphone or pad. They also provide an ipod with a large selection of music (I appreciated the Radiohead and Okerville River). All in all, an almost perfect place to spend time in a true "home away from home."

From the Owner

We chose to purchase our Matthews Beach home because we loved the quiet neighborhood but also loved being only 10 minutes away from the city. It is the perfect mix of town and city! It was also an easy decision for us because we wanted to continue our families traditions in this home by keeping it in our family. We knew this location would be ideal for our family and hope that it is also for you and yours.
