Description of the Seattle vacation home rental
Our location offers quick access to Safeco Field for Mariner's baseball!
This 1920's home is a classic gem. Two bedrooms, one with a queen bed and the other with two twin beds, allow Luna Park Lower to sleep up to four guests. There is a spacious living room which features a fireplace and soaring coved ceilings. A fully equipped kitchen with breakfast nook, dining room, and full bathroom complete the space. Towels and linens are provided, as well as basic kitchen gear, coffee, and tea, wireless high-speed internet, and cable tv. A portable crib is available upon request. Luna Park Lower is pet-friendly; your group may include one dog with a one-time fee.
Luna Park Lower occupies the main floor of this shared house. The second floor, Luna Park Upper, is a completely separate rental with its own entrance. There is a washer and dryer available in the basement that you may use during your stay, and a charcoal grill in the yard during summer months. The yard and basement are shared by all guests. We are happy to rent both the lower and upper units together for larger groups (up to 7 guests), inquire for pricing.
Within a few blocks of our house you will find a nice variety of restaurants and cafe/diners such as Luna Park Cafe, one of the best breakfast diners in Seattle. The Skylark features pub fare and live music on the weekends as does The Bridge, all within walking distance from our house. And you are a short drive to Alki Beach where you'll find a myriad of fine and casual dining choices.
This is the perfect jumping-off point for fantastic sightseeing, museums, the Pike Place Market, the Seattle Center (which houses the Pacific Science Center, Experience Music Project and Space Needle) Aquarium, Zoo, fine restaurants, ferries, and all of the hiking, skiing, and outdoor adventure that our surrounding mountains have to offer.

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.
close to beautiful Alki beach
May 4, 2013
We enjoyed our stay at this lovingly kept older home. We were happy to use the free shuttle and the water taxi from Alki Beach to downtown. Shopping was close and a great breakfast diner, 'the Chelan' is in walking distance. The only thing for me to get used to is the train wistle during the night. Thank you for a pleasant stay in Seattle.

The homeowners were really good to work with. We booked this house as well as one of their other rental properties (The Full Moon Cottage) because we had a large group that came into town from all over to celebrate a friend's wedding. The homeowners helped us nail down all of the details and worked with our schedules to help us figure out the most cost effective route for renting both places. All of the people that stayed at the house said they were really happy we did it and were really happy with the space that it provided everyone compared to getting rooms at a hotel. We loved the location of this house as the neighborhood was really easy to get in/out of. We ended up taking the water taxi from Alki Beach to downtown a couple days while we were there and that worked out great. It would be a bit of a walk to get to the water taxi. We had cars available to us so we drove to the water taxi and parked our car (free parking along the curbsides close to the water taxi area). We loved the access to the freeways as we did a lot of driving while we were in town and the local restaurants close by were really good too! I think you are definitely taking a risk when you book something off the internet based upon pictures, but the homeowners customer service was outstanding and I would completely recommend their homes because they are true to their word and advertisements!

Moonlight Guest House Review
October 13, 2011
The Moonlight Guest House is a well appointed, comfortable home in a residential neighborhood with ample street parking. The layout of the house with 2 bedrooms on the main floor to either side of the bath allows for privacy. The kitchen with eat-in table alcove, dining room and living room provides good traffic flow. Additional thoughtful touches include a household information binder, sight seeing info, and basic starter supplies in the kitchen and bath. The programmed heating cycle provided a comfortable indoor climate for this time of year. And perhaps the best part: location! The house is conveniently located to public transit, downtown Seattle, and commercial areas in West Seattle, yet is in a quiet and friendly neighborhood. It's a great place to stay!!!
Great Stay, Everything as Promised...
May 24, 2011
The house is in a great area and everything was as promised. Nothing was misleading or missing from the details of the ad. Our interactions with the owner over email were fast and pleasant. We had a great stay and this house was a perfect place for us.

Clean, Convenient, with Character
February 7, 2011
This funky West Seattle bungalow fit our needs perfectly! We were three Moms and four teenaged daughters, up for a weekend in Seattle. The house is easy to get to from I-5, it's clean and very comfortable for a group. Plenty of sleeping options, with several beds, a fold out couch and a long leather sofa. It has easy access to The Seattle Center and Downtown (5 min. on Hwy. 99), a GREAT Thai restaurant within walking distance, and in just a few minutes drive you can be on Alki Beach and enjoy the walking path, fantastic views of the city, several choices for good coffee, and restaurants from fine dining at Salty's to a bakery, pizza, or fish & chips. The funky, old decor of this house gives it character, but the house has obviously been taken care of, and it was quaint and comfortable. The only thing that might make a difference for a group is, there is only one full bathroom, however, they have installed a funky stand-up shower in the basement, and for times sake, we used it! We'd definitely stay there again.
Like Being At Home
April 13, 2010
My friend and I, in our sixties, were visiting Seattle to see family and the sights. The house is comfortable and homey. The neighborhood is quiet. And we particularly wanted to be in West Seattle, so it was perfect. The Rosses were wonderful to deal with, responding promptly, furnishing all the necessary information, friendly and business-like at the same time.

Great place, great bargain
November 5, 2009
My family was in Washington for a wedding and afterwards we needed a base in Seattle to visit friends and tour the downtown. This house had the room we needed and the rate was a great deal compared other similarly-sized rentals. It is near a major artery that connects West Seattle to the rest of the city, so getting out and about is simple. Additionally, it is located closer to the airport than most other possibilities, making our getaway that much simpler. The house was spotless and there was plenty of room to spread out and to unpack. The weather was not cooperative (cold and rainy) so my kids didn't get to explore the garden in the back, but it certainly looks like a place they'd've loved to play in on a sunny day. The neighborhood is nice and quiet, and I had a pleasant chat with one of the next door neighbors. Street parking right in front of the house was always available. The furnishings are nice and practical, and the kitchen has everything one'd want. The decor throughout the house is kind of mixed and matched from various time periods, but that was a minor issue for us. Laura and Joe were friendly, very prompt with their communications, and the deposit check was also quickly returned. If you are looking for a solid, affordable place of this size, I'd definitely check it out.
Perfect for us...
September 5, 2009
This place was perfect for the 5 of us. We are a family of gals who need privacy 'cause on occasion we have a guy around - and this place had a perfect layout for all of us to have that privacy. The home contained all that we needed and more and the location was really very good and very convenient to everything we wanted to do (Mariners game, downtown activities, etc)...We appreciate the accuracy of the website information and the ease of which to access the home. The owner's communcation was perfect and other than Seattle having so much to offer - meaning we were not "home" much so we did not get to explore the neighbourhood - we look forward to returning and doing just that, especially part of the Alki beach area which is very close. Thanks Laura and Joe.

A casual,comfortable home in a quiet and safe neighborhood for my 4 teenagers, my husband and myself to relax, work on our lap tops, watch cable TV, eat from the frig, or take a 6 minute walk to a Starbucs. Easy access to the bus line where my children took it to the University District to meet up with us at the Univ of Washington. Served our needs with a working washer and dryer,and even a basement cloths line. Plenty of room and beds. Mr. and Mrs. Ross responded quickly and informatively to our e-mails. We really enjoyed BEAUTIFUL Seattle. Sincerely, The Zomback's
Just what we needed!
August 10, 2009
We needed a space for family members to be together to support an adult son having cancer surgery at Swedish. The house was great - we had separate spaces if we wanted and great gathering places. Our grandsons could squeal and laugh and go for walks and that was wonderful! And Joe and Laura were like extended family in their willingness to make a stressful time as comfortable as possible. Thanks Joe & Laura!

A Perfect Place!
June 30, 2009
We rented this home for our family that were coming in from out of town for our wedding. The location and size were perfect for our needs and the price was unbeatable! There was plenty of room for everyone to have their space and the back yard offered a beautiful area to sit and visit. Laura and Joe were wonderful, accomodating, easy to contact and work with,we couldn't have asked for a nicer couple. If you are looking for a nice, quiet, centrally located home away from home, this is the place. The neighbors are nice, the area is beautiful and everything is so close by. I would highly recommend this home, you will not be disappointed. Thank you Laura and Joe, it was definitely a pleasure!
Owner Supplied Testimonials
Thank you so much for having such a nice homey atmosphere. The Christmas tree and decorations were extremely appreciated. The kids had a great time - we brought Christmas presents for them and stuffed the stockings. Wow - too much to ask for, you guys are the best!
Interested in Renting this Property?
About:Having both owned houses before we married in February of 2009, Joe and I decided to try the vacation rental business rather than sell either. Our first guests were Laura's family, in town for the wedding. Since then, with Joe's work as an entertainer and our joint project of raising our two sons,...
