Debbie and Theo have got it right, down to the smallest detail - they even offered to come round with more fuel for the barbecue or firepit if needed. Nothing would have been too much trouble, we only had to ask. We were welcomed with a bottle of Prosecco and vases of camellias, a great start to a wonderful couple of weeks. Our party was a mixture of ages and there was something in the home for all of them to enjoy. No one wanted to leave! The Bellevue Home is in a great location, surrounded by a lovely garden and within walking distance of a variety of restaurants, stores, gyms and parks. It is within easy access of SeaTac Airport and all the sights of Seattle. This visit we went to the Space Needle then took the Monorail to Pike Place Market. My son and his family live close by so we were able to see their home and local area. We visited their Church and my younger grandsons' schools. We were all able to go trampolining, ice skating and bowling only a short distance away. Our time at the Bellevue Home sped past and we are all hoping to return! Thank you Debbie and Theo for providing such a perfect place for us to stay!
