My kids cried when we left
July 16, 2013
7 of us fit so comfortably in the 4 bedrooms with varying bed sizes. The kitchen was well-equipped. LOVED having the washer and dryer and extra shower in the basement. I like the little things like trash cans and clocks in every room, the clothes line in the basement (since all things take days to dry in Seattle), plentiful towels and blankets, fans. We could've used writing paper, night lights, a cheese grater and more light in the living room. One bathroom posed a hurdle to jump over, but everyone learned to respect the needs of others when it came to using the loo. The kids enjoyed the fuzzy pillows, games, and secrets of an old home. Tedious recycling program, but I'm all for it. We parked one car in the tight driveway and didn't use it. The mini-van had no problems finding space on the street at any given time of day It was an easy 8-10 minute drive to downtown weekend and weekday. Wasn't really impressed with Luna Park Café. Go to the dock at the water taxi on any given day/evening to strike up a great conversation with the crabbers and fishermen. It's a learning experience for young and old. Kids loved Alki Beach despite the cold temps in the middle of July. It would've been nice to have beach chairs/umbrella to borrow from the house. Grocery store 5 minute drive. Aquarium, eh. Argosy Harbor Locks Cruise, yes! We found the LDS chapel 5 minutes away for Sunday church. The night before and morning of check-out our kids cried because they didn't want to leave. I appreciate that the owners would use and not throw away any food we left in the fridge. I don't like to waste perfectly good food when traveling. We would definitely stay in this house again and recommend it to any one who doesn't mind squeaky stairs in the middle of the night or in the wee hours of the morning. I think they add character to a charming house. Loved it.
