Great location, walkable neighborhood, comfortable
We had a great stay at the casetta! Marian and her husband were very helpful (but not at all instrusive) and the unit was very well appointed. We enjoyed walking into Tangletown for coffee and donuts and the small convenience store close by had what we needed for breakfasts in the room. We would definitely stay there again.
Nice place. Glad it had AC. Perfect for couples. Kitchen has basics.
Long weekend getaway
Perfect location for our needs. Close to the interstate and neighborhood restaurants and bars but in a private, quiet community
Clean and sunlit. The right size and location. Close proximity to U-Dub and downtown. Good pubic transportation access. Freeway close but quiet as can be. Terrific local neighborhood establishments. Beautifully lush and peaceful garden. Thoughtfully stocked supplies, directions, recommendations and information binder. Owners were terrific and helpful. This is a lovely place to stay. Best ever for us. Thank you.
We had a wonderful 2 week stay at La Casetta. It was clean and well stocked and we especially loved the large modern kitchen and bathroom. The area is beautiful and close to everything. We would highly recommend this rental!
Wonderful stay, beautiful neighborhood
We had an extremely enjoyable stay at La Casetta. The unit is new, very clean, well organized, private and fully stocked for convenience. On some brisk mornings, the supplemental heater in the bathroom made for wonderful showers! It is a short walk from two unique areas of stores and restaurants with a nice urban neighborhood feel. The homes in the area are lovely, and our daily walks featured a beautiful view of the Cascades from the top of our street.
***green lake / wallingford*** is the best neighborhood in seattle!
Green lake is seattle’s most beloved park. Its expanse of water and green space in the center of a dense urban neighborhood draws thousands of people daily from all over the city. The park serves as a natural preserve for hundreds of species of trees and plants, as well as numerous birds and waterfowl. The newly reconstructed 2.8-mile path around the lake provides a perfect recreational spot for runners, bikers, skaters and walkers. Many others use the athletic fields or visit the park for boating, picnics and swimming.
Green lake boat rental offers paddle boards, kayaks, canoes, pedal & row boats and sailboats.
Your children can enjoy the several playgrounds near the cottage, one of which is just 2 blocks away. On a hot day, head over to the wading pool or beach at green lake.
The cottage is a ten-minute walk to several restaurants:
* tangletown zoka coffee shop -- a great spot for hanging out
* hiroki specialty desserts -- yum!
* elysian brewing -- an intimate brewery-bistro
* burgundian bar -- a large selection of beers, a full-service bar, and seasonal food menu
* himalayan sherpa house restaurant -- authentic dishes of nepal, india, and tibet
* kisaku -- a neighborhood sushi restaurant
