This newly furnished and remodeled home has modern amenities, a quiet location, and proximity to all that Seattle has to offer.
The living areas are spread over three levels.
The entry level has a bedroom with a twin over queen bunk bed. Beneath the queen bed is another twin trundle bed. This bedroom also has a crib. There is also a full bathroom with bathtub en suite. This bedroom provides direct access outdoors.
Up one level is the main living area. This open concept space has a chef's kitchen with modern counter tops and stainless steel appliances. This flows directly to the dining area with seating for 8 (expands to accommodate more), plus stools at the breakfast counter. Continuing from the dining area is the living room, furnished with a queen sleeper sofa (very comfortable mattress!), DVD, and cable TV. Enjoy our collection of games (Scrabble, cards, etc.) in front of the gas fireplace.
Continuing up to the top floor, you arrive at dual master bedrooms, each with an en suite bathroom. Each of these two bedrooms has a *king size bed* with two nightstands and large closet.
The home also features a washer/dryer for use by our guests.
Each of our homes has been decorated to pay homage to a meaningful facet of our lives. This home ("Life's a Beach") has a theme commemorating the great beaches of the world.
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 off street parking for one car (and plentiful free street parking for additional vehicles).
Interaction with guests
Your hosts, Andy and Lynne, live just down the block. We are here to welcome you and help you with any of your needs during your stay. We are happy to offer you advice for sightseeing and restaurant recommendations.
Guests will receive, in advance, our comprehensive homemade visitors' guide to Seattle, packed with our personal recommendations for dining, activities, and much more.
Do you plan to cook during your stay? By special advanced arrangement (depending on availability), we will fulfill your grocery list and have your home stocked for your arrival.
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 5 years ago... 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.
