vacation rental description

The Space

'Le Bijou' of Queen Anne (The Jewel of Queen Anne) is a 1909 craftsman's cottage located on the western bluff facing Puget Sound in coveted Queen Anne . A true craftsman who developed his skills renovating vintage homes on the east coast was hired to recreate the fine details of craftsmanship present at the turn of the century. Crown molding, wainscoting, lathe and plaster ceilings and walls were lovingly and meticulously repaired and restored by this artist/craftsman using techniques and skills not used by craftsmen in these modern times.

traveler reviews for this seattle cottage rental

First visit to Seattle

Review submitted: August 13, 2014   Date of arrival: August 2, 2014

My husband and I were very happy with our stay at the beautifully refinished Queen Anne craftsman cottage. Debera made us feel welcome and was a great hostess/landlord for our week in Seattle. Outstanding garden, views of the sound and close to downtown. Perfect! This was our first visit to Seattle and we could not have found a better place to stay.

Recommended for: age 55+, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners response: Hi Janet,
It was a pleasure having you and your husband at Le Bijou. Thank you so much for your comments on my gardens. They were an effort of love as well as the renovating of the cottage. Perhaps next time you will be able to enjoy the fire pit in the front with the Sound view. You were definitely on the move while here. I should also have the barbecue up and running. Perhaps it will be an outdoor kitchen as well. I am still in the planning stages of how I can enhance the ambiance of Le Bijou. I think it is a very special little oasis within the city. Best wishes to you and I hope to see you again,
Debera Reiley

A wonderful stay!

Review submitted: July 26, 2014   Date of arrival: July 8, 2014

This cottage is as beautiful as it appears in the listing. Every detail, fixture, window shade, towel, linen is gorgeous. The bathroom and shower with stocked with nice soaps and shampoo/conditioner. It's like a luxurious hotel suite, but with charm. Debera was a very gracious host. This is the perfect place for a getaway for a couple. It's in a lovely part of Queen Anne where, at every turn, you get a view of Puget Sound. I would highly recommend this as a vacation rental.
