About the Owner

I have lived in Seattle for 14 years. I live downstairs, work from home, and am happy to answer any questions you may have or suggest fun activities in Seattle and the Puget Sound.

My family and I enjoy our free time exploring the city, attending cultural events, making and appreciating art, and roaming the Puget Sound region in our Westfalia and our sailboat.

This was a great place to stay. Loved sitting on the balcony and gazing at downtown Seattle, loved being able to walk to Freemont and Gas Works Park, and was able to take the bus to the light rail to get myself back to the airport. The apartment had everything we needed... even cooked dinner in one night. My daughter lives in Wallingford, so I am sure that we will be back!

the most cozy place!

  • 5 of 5
The perfect stay for our girls weekend! The location is so close to everything so it made zipping around and sightseeing a breeze. There is wifi, hulu, netflix, all the cooking and baking necessities, full bathroom and toiletry accommodations and it's off main streets in a quiet neighborhood with a fantastic view of the city lights at night. Pictures are very accurate and Samantha did an excellent job communicating and setting the place up. it's a must :)

This apartment is wonderful. Great location, clean, and sunny. We really appreciated the full sized kitchen and made some great family meals there. Easy walk to Wallingford shops, Irwin's, Essential Bakery and Gaswork Park. The owner was very accommodating. We will definitely be back.

Fall Getaway 2014

  • 5 of 5
I was traveling to Seattle from MN. Wow, what a fantastic place and the owners were very hospitable, especially because I got there so late in the night because of plane delays. I would highly recommend coming to Wallingford Terrace! I was able to go on runs and the neighborhood is great for going into the city with cabs and close to UW. Perfect place for 2 or small family because of the pullout couch. Nice, clean, and quiet place! I would definitely stay here again.
