traveler reviews for this seattle house rental

Comfortable and gracious Magnolia home

Review submitted: April 6, 2014   Date of arrival: March 27, 2014

SeaEscape is a lovely mid-century home in one of Seattle's nicest neighborhoods. The house is attractively and sufficiently furnished to suit a family or two or three couples. The listing and photos accurately describe the property. The house is spacious and well equipped with linens, family games etc. The kitchen is a little dated but was very nice to work in and met our needs well. The bathrooms are beautifully updated and all furnishings were quite elegant. Several members of my family stayed at the house over a long weekend while attending my daughter's wedding at nearby Shilshole Marina. The location is great for spending time in Ballard and Magnolia has a great small village center. Beautiful views of Elliot Bay and Puget Sound are all around and there is a wonderful small park very close by. The owner and caretaker were very responsive and pleasant to work with. The property is well maintained and very clean. All in all a terrific experience and I highly recommend the property.

Owners response: Dear Yvonne,
Thank you for the eloquent review! We are so glad you enjoyed SeaEscape, the furnishings & views. I never tire of the mountain & marine view, it changes daily with light, weather, boat traffic. True Puget Sound! Hope you can visit again! Cheers, Lynn

Great family rendez-vous for spring break

Review submitted: April 1, 2014   Date of arrival: March 23, 2014

Grand-parents, parents, and grand-kids all enjoyed our stay in SeaEscape. The listing description is bang on with great location, wonderful amenities, and lovely views of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains. The nesting bald eagles were a bonus! The property was spotless and well appointed. The owner even purchased a lovely roasting pan to accommodate my request! We caught the bus downtown which is quick and easy to do from SeaEscape. The kids in particular enjoyed our visit to the Space Needle, our ride on the Duck, and our tour of the Theo Chocolate Factory.

Owners response: We are so glad that you had a wonderful birthday celebration! As well, enjoyrd the house & watching our resident eagles. Hope you can visit again. Thank you for taking the time to write! Lynn

Cute, large, clean home with great views.

Review submitted: March 23, 2014   Date of arrival: March 13, 2014

The house was a perfect meeting spot for our family. Lots of space for gathering including a very large living room where we watched movies and played games. We also found ourselves sitting at the kitchen dining table a lot as we cooked, chatted, and enjoyed the bay and Olympic Mountain views. Magnolia is a lovely, quiet and safe neighborhood that is quite walkable. The house is also an easy drive to downtown Seattle. Even though the house is older it was very clean and nicely decorated.

Owners response: So glad your family had a nice time & enjoyrd the views. As well, the decor.
We have attempted to creat a 5 star atmosphere with a lovely remodeled & grand home with character. Is there anything that could have have been done to have made your stay a 5 star experience? Wishing you safe & happy travels, Lynn
