This home has it all: modern amenities, a quiet location, and proximity to all that Seattle has to offer. All furnishings, appliances and housewares are new and up to date.
Each of our homes has been decorated to pay homage to a meaningful facet of our lives. This home has an "art gallery" theme, with works of art by up-and-coming Seattle artists on display throughout.
There are 3 bedrooms in this home, and each bedroom has an en suite bathroom!
On the top floor of the home is the master suite, with king bed, walk in closet, and 5 piece spa bathroom. Across the hall is a second bedroom, which also has a king bed and en suite bathroom. The third bedroom is on the lowest level of the home, and it offers great flexibility. It is furnished with a twin over double sized bunk bed (solid and sturdy --- not just for kids!). This room has an en suite bathroom as well.
Between the two sleeping floors is the main living area. This open concept space has a chef's kitchen with hard wood floors, new cabinets, new quartz countertops, and stainless steel appliances. This flows directly to the dining area which includes 3 stools at the breakfast counter, and a dining table that seats 8 and expands to accommodate more.
Continuing from the dining room is the sunken living room, furnished with plenty of seating, a nicely loaded cable TV package (HBO, Showtime, Starz, etc.), and a DVD player. There is a queen size sleeper sofa (with highest end sofa bed mattress on the market) for larger groups. Enjoy our collection of games (Scrabble, cards, etc.) in front of the gas fireplace.
The living room opens to a large patio. Here, you will find a gas barbecue, a large table for outdoor dining, and a chaise lounge chair.
The main living floor also features a powder room.
Also in the home is a full-size washer dryer, an attached one-car parking garage, and plenty of storage space.
This home is equipped with window air conditioners in the living room and master bedroom.
Access to the home is provided without a cumbersome lock box or key exchange. Instead, you will choose a 4 digit code, and and the electronic lock to the home will be programmed work your code for the duration of your stay.
You will have access to the entire home, including garage parking for one car (and plentiful free street parking for additional vehicles). You also have a dedicated storage unit, as well as bicycle storage (both available with prior arrangement).

This home is central to everything Madison Valley has to offer: great restaurants, parks, hiking, supermarkets, day spas, and more.
Your hosts made Madison Valley their home when settling in Seattle in 2011... and haven't looked back since.
We love walking the streets of this neighborhood, and we will gladly suggest fun walks depending on your interests. Stroll to the beach at Madison Park. Walk by multi-million dollar estates. Discover hidden neighborhood gems such as the farmhouse with horses in the yard and the home that doubles as an eclectic art studio and antique truck gallery. Take a walk through the fabled Arboretum to Lake Washington.
Once you have worked up your appetite, enjoy the countless restaurants that Madison Valley ("Little Paris") has to offer. In addition to French gems, try our favorite tapas restaurant or the best Japanese food east of Tokyo. Take your morning coffee in one of numerous bakeries. Or opt for Thai, pan-Asian, craft pizza, Tex-Mex or more.
Our home provides easy access to Downtown (Pikes Place Market, Seattle Art Museum, Seattle Great Wheel), Seattle Center (Space Needle, Chihuly Glass Museum), South Lake Union (MOHAI), University of Washington, and Capitol Hill. All are accessible by car, bus (numerous bus lines a few blocks from home), or for the adventurous, by foot.
If all of this touring (and eating) has you tired, pamper yourself with a visit to a day spa or nail salon. There are several of each within a few blocks of home, and we are happy to point you in the right direction.
