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.

Great stay in Wallingford

  • 5 of 5
Our stay in Wallingford was fantastic! Everything was clean and comfortable, and Samantha was easily reachable if we had any questions. The kitchen was well equipped with all essential cookware. It was the perfect amount of space for two adults and one child. We would definitely recommend staying here, and we will certainly be back the next time we are in Seattle.

This apartment was perfect for two adults and two children. It was very clean and even more spacious than it looks in the pictures. The pull out couch was actually comfortable. The kitchen was better equipped than our kitchen at home! Samantha was available to answer questions and very accommodating and flexible. The neighborhood is quaint with a great grocery store nearby. We were able to easily take a bus to downtown (bus stop was less than a block away). Driving to the airport was easy as well, just about a half and hour away. I would absolutely suggest this rental, might even return ourselves someday! Thank you Samantha, Casey and Mya!!

From the Owner

I knew this was a great property when I first saw it from the street, and I saw it as home instantly when I walked inside. We feel fortunate to have a private and lovely apartment upstairs for visiting family and friends, and we are honored to share it with you so that more families make happy memories here.

The kitchen, dining and living areas open up to a balcony with French doors and a gorgeous view of downtown from across Lake Union. Also, we have outfitted this rental with all the comforts of home. We have made Thanksgiving dinner in the kitchen and have outfitted it accordingly.
