Cook's kitchen, private patio with unobstructed lake view (including Adirondack chairs, Weber grill, etc), two bedrooms with closets, full bath, laundry room, and well-equipped for young families.

Feedback: please see our reviews -- all are 5-stars with the exception of 1 at 4-stars! We focus on creating comfortable, relaxing, and private accommodations for groups/familes of 2-4, definitely including children.

This 2 bedroom, 1 bath apartment will give you the experience of living in Seattle. Located right across the street from Green Lake Park, you can jog the 2.7 mile inner loop, walk to great restaurants or catch public transportation (bus #62 or #26) to downtown. Very family-friendly apartment!

The apartment is well equipped for cooking if you feel like taking in the view from the front porch. It's also set up well for kids. The front bedroom was designed for them with toys, books and a queen size bed. The rear bedroom was set up with relaxation in mind and also has a queen size bed.

Basic supplies (salt, pepper, coffee and filter, tea, laundry detergent and dryer sheets) come with your stay. If you need anything extra or would like to stock your fridge with other basics before you arrive, please let us know. We are here to help make your stay feel as close to home as possible.

Parking is always easily available beside the house along 65th.

About Paul

We bought the house a while ago and completely remodeled it with an above-ground basement apartment by design. The basement is completely new (the house was lifted, and a new foundation and floor put in). After several long term renters, we decided to try renting the space short term so that we could use it when family was in town. So here we are on VRBO sharing our space with visitors near and far to enjoy everything Seattle has to offer.

Paul and I (Susan) both work at the local aerospace company and have 2 wonderful children (13 and 11). We enjoy traveling, playing tennis, golf (Paul), running and biking (Susan), and just hanging out at the lake. Paul is a mezcal enthusiast and I love to cook and bake. We enjoy hanging out with friends, sharing good food and spirits.

As for interaction, our first priority is to respect your privacy. We absolutely stay as quiet as possible in the evening and early in the morning when we have guests (and we are typically out during the days). Above the apartment is our main floor (kitchen and living area), and then above that is the top story with our bedrooms. As such, noise has not been an issue with our guests. All that said, feel free to knock on our door if you need anything at all, and we are happy to have a chat anytime!

Paul purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Paul chose Green Lake

Compared to other Green Lake properties, this is as close to the park as you can get, is higher above the street, is as modern a space as any, is private (separate entrance, etc.), has two separate bedrooms (and many great amenities, including laundry, cook's kitchen), and is very well equipped for kids. It is decidedly different from the "rental hotels" that are sprouting up in Seattle neighborhoods to cheaply accommodate less-discerning tourists.

Within a 15 minute walking distance to great restaurants, coffee shops, grocery stores and entertainment.

Metro bus line #62 to downtown and Magnuson Park within 1 block. Bus line #26 to downtown and Northgate Mall within 3 blocks. Bus line #45 to University of Washington and light rail station within 4 blocks.

What makes this apartment unique

You have your own WiFi network available (free), as well as cable TV (including premium channels -- HBO, etc.). We also have many DVD movies available for kids and adults.

Very nice.

  • 4 of 5

This is a nice 2-bedroom apartment. The hosts were very helpful and replaced a coffee maker that wasn't working. There are some steps to manage, especially with larger suitcases like we had, but Paul helped. Parking is on a very steep hill but was always available. The view over Green Lake is beautiful, esp. at sunset.

We couldn’t have been more pleased with our stay. It was the perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

The house was super nice and was a thousand times better than staying at a hotel. I would recommend this property for anyone who is looking for the neighborhood feeling in a big city. We were able to be close to family and friends. If we had gotten a hotel we would have been miles away. And what should be better than staying across the street from Green Lake! Absolutely beautiful area!

Great location & wonderful accomodations

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful stay on Green Lake! Great location to walk, grab a bite to eat, & a short bus ride into town (much easier than trying to drive into town). Would definitely recommend this apartment!

Green Lake Charm!

  • 5 of 5

I couldn't give a higher recommendation for this place! Paul & Susan are the right combination of professional yet warm and they maintain their property and yard to the highest of standards. They checked in briefly after we arrived to make sure all our needs were met. This 2-BR is across the street from Green Lake with a lovely view of the park & water. There is an outdoor patio w/chairs overlooking the lake. It is convenient, clean, exceptionally well-maintained, well-stocked with not only the essentials but just about everything you would have at home. Each bedroom has a comfortable queen-size bed, and the bathroom is located right between the bedrooms, off the hallway.

Tasteful comfortable furnishings including a small activity desk with 2 chairs (for children). We would definitely stay there again! Thank you for sharing your beautiful space with us Paul & Susan!
