Overview

Property Details

Updated: Dec 15, 2014
Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

This 1890’s remodeled 1st floor unit provides a conveniently located retreat half a block from the shores of Greenlake. Our family has lived in some capacity on this block for three generations enjoying over 60 years of community and laughter. Located near the bustling neighborhoods, this unit provides the perfect starting point for peaceful walks around the lake or gustatory adventures through Seattle's famous neighborhoods. The nearby bus stop offers a convenient option for getting into the heart of downtown Seattle!

Whether you use the driveway or ample street parking, a short path leads up to the covered, private entrance of the Green Lake ground level unit. Once inside you will find:

~Spacious living room with partial view of the lake

~Master bedroom with Queen size bed and flat screen TV

~Second bedroom with two twins and flat screen TV

~Well equipped kitchen

~Laundry Room with washer and dryer

~Full Bathroom with shower and bath

Whether you are looking for a quiet retreat where you can take in the calming views of Greenlake or wanting to explore the Northwest's diverse outdoor activities or Seattle's exceptional food scene, this Green Lake unit is here to welcome you.

The Wallingford/Tangletown area, just a short distance away, showcases over 60 unique places ranging from the restaurant of James Beard Award winner Maria Hines, Tilth, also voted one of the best new restaurants by the New York Times; to one of our favorite taco trucks in town, Rancho Bravo. Or explore the variations of the Pacific Northwest Microbrew community with a handcrafted pint at Elysian Brewery in Tangletown or the ranging selection of local and imported beers at Bottleworks in Wallingford. The near-by 2.8-mile walking path around Greenlake or the boat and bike rentals at the Greenlake boathouse and Greggs provide several modes to enjoy the nature and beauty of Green Lake. On a beautiful Seattle day the grassy slopes surrounding the lake are home to picnickers and sunbathers soaking up the sun and enjoying the beauty of this lake nestled in the heart of the city. If you wish to expand your adventure, the bus stop a very short walk away, can take you to the heart of downtown. Many guests fit in day trips to explore the beauty of the Cascades, Hoh Rainforest, or majestic Mt. Rainer.

Laughter and community live in the soil and we look forward to sharing this space with you!

About the Owner

John and I (JoAnna) have been married 34 years and have enjoyed traveling with our family throughout the United States and many places in the world. Our best experiences in travel have been through finding vrbo's in neighborhoods and doing house swaps. We love Seattle and are excited to have a place we believe offers a home-like place to recharge and that is perfectly located for exploring our strong neighborhoods and all that the Northwest has to offer.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5
My family stayed here for two months this summer and absolutely loved it. Our favorite things were being able to eat outside and having a view of the lake. We did not have a car for half of the time we were there, but did not really need it for most things anyways -- there is so much to do on foot or from the bus line that runs a block away. Also, there are so many options for grocery delivery and delivery of basically anything, we could order in if we wanted. It was the perfect life of leisure!

The house itself is charming and very convenient -- nicely decorated, clean and with a washer and dryer handy (key for me!). The owners were helpful and professional. They were readily available by email and phone and even stopped by when they were in the area to make sure we had what we needed.

I will stay here whenever I am in town and it is available!

Perfect location & Beautiful house!

Perfect location & Beautiful house!
  • 5 of 5
This rental house was just beautiful and the location was perfect! It was exactly what we needed and what we were looking for our visit to Seattle. We stayed for a week to visit our friends that lived just a quick 10 minute drive from the house. We purchased Seattle City Passes so we were out and about during the day so the house perfect to come home to and just be able to regroup and relax.

The beautiful Green Lake is less than a 1/2 block across the street, and during the summer months the sun doesn't set until 10pm so it was perfect to go and relax and people watch or take a nice walk after a busy day. So Perfect!

We met lovely Joanna when we first arrived as she was just putting the finishing touches in the house. There was a wonderful welcome basket full of goodies which we enjoyed very much and fresh cut flowers in the bathroom. We did not get to meet Jonathan during our stay but what a great experience we had with him in booking the house and answering all of our questions. Thank you so much for all your patience and kindness.

We can't wait to come back again next year! Thank you for the fun memories that we made with family & friends in your wonderful, beautiful rental home!

Perfect stay and lovely sunsets

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this awesome rental with our family of five (kids ages 1,4,6) and our dog for just over a month this past summer and loved it. The place is lovingly decorated, thoughtfully appointed, managed by super nice people, and is in a great location. We barely touched the car and spent most days walking to the coffee shops for breakfast, playing at the lake or park, and enjoying one of Seattle's best neighborhoods. We even recommended the place to friends of ours already since we enjoyed it so much. Just wish we had more time...maybe next summer if we're lucky!

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5
This vacation rental exceeded our expectations! From the time we walked through the door we were just blown away on how beautiful & how much care has been put into this rental. On the kitchen table there was a handwritten note welcoming us with a basket of goodies to eat. Being that this was our first time traveling to Washington all the way from Maui, we wanted a place that would be a home away from home...this was it. We were extremely Blessed! We would definitely recommend this place to anyone. Mahalo Nui Loa

Absolutely Amazing!!

  • 5 of 5
This adorable rental exceeded our expectations! The warm, welcoming ambiance envelopes you as soon as you walk through the front door. The atmosphere was earthy yet subtly sophisticated and, most importantly, very relaxing. The porch gives a clear view of bustling Greenlake and is a great place to sit and soak up the sun or have a glass of wine. The owners were extremely helpful and attentive in answering all of our questions before and during the trip. I couldn't have asked for a better experience!
