Description of the Seattle vacation home rental
Spacious high-end remodel offers both open areas and privacy to large families, intimate couples, and travelers who enjoy space and privacy. The house boasts three defined, generous spaces; city view master suite, main floor living and king suite, and garden level suites and living area. Japanese maples and towering stones grace the front courtyard boasting perhaps the largest pair of terra cotta pots outside of Italy. Through the front door, functional art lights a wide entry furnished with a camelback couch and fireplace. Custom inlaid stairs lead to the city view master suite and bath large enough for a couple and children, an additional sitting room is furnished with a sleeper couch. Dual sliders open onto a 750 square foot deck that views Elliot Bay, downtown Seattle and the Cascades south to Mount Rainier.

On the main level, a Lundgren-designed glass door leads to the restored 1929 bath and king size bedroom. Past the formal dining is a temperature controlled wine room and laundry services. The heart of the home, the main floor great room provides glimpses of Mt. Rainier from southern facing windows and HDTV, Bose surround sound, wireless internet and printing capacity. The granite and stainless kitchen have dual sinks, ovens, prep areas, a Thermador six-burner grill, a warming drawer, separate full size fridge and freezer, an Advantium microwave, and a multi-level island.

The garden level suite can be self-functioning. The great room has dual French doors that lead to the Japanese garden and provide a separate entry. A wide open entertaining room houses a fridge, sink, and business work space. Beauty and function combine in the luxury spa. A mirrored Kohler cabinet supplies wall-mounted water to a sink resting upon an architectural glass slab. A heated floor and marble-walled steam shower hosts aromatherapy oils and multiple showerheads. Just beyond are cal-king and king bedrooms with wall-to-wall closets. The cal-king bedroom is large is equiped with a futon couch, allowing the flexibility for younger children to be close to their parents.
**Please note that we charge $20 per person per day for any group over 8 people. Thank you.

Great House

Great house for a party of 8 people, we had more than enough beds/rooms to share. The house was fully equipped.

Gorgeous Home!

This home was, simply put, WOW. There were 10 of us staying for a wedding, and we all found the home to be spacious, accommodating, equipped, and has a great view. Lisa was very friendly and easy to work with during the check in process. While parking was limited, she made sure we knew this ahead of time to plan our transportation. The home was clean when we arrived, despite the fact that a group of 15 stayed there right before our arrival. The steam shower downstairs was a hit with our friends. The kitchen was pristine, and as a home chef, I wish we had a chance to make a meal there. We appreciate the spacious refrigerator to put all of our stuff. The balcony upstairs overlooks Seattle and provided a great gathering place in the summer evening. We even took our "first look" wedding photo on that balcony! Our only regret about staying here was we were too busy to really enjoy the home. But all the time we spent hanging out with our wedding party here was definitely memorable!

Want to move into this house permanently!

My mother and I rented this house for our extended family to stay the weekend during my wedding (I'm a transplant and had to import most of the guest list). Couldn't have loved it more! The pics provided paint a very accurate picture the place--looks very modern, recently redone, the deck view is wonderful. My mom also mentioned the landlords were extremely helpful in making sure they had everything they needed prior to their stay (we had several small children in tow). Overall, the house was spacious, beautifully decorated, and ten times better than a block of hotel rooms at the same price. Highly recommend!!

Amazing Wedding Weekend

Our weekend stay at this upscale yet affordable West Seattle home for my daughter's wedding was wonderful. It gave our farflung (Maryland, Texas, and Illinois) family a great space to reconnect for our short Seattle stay with a beautiful great room/kitchen; yet each of our four families had great private space as well. Owners Lisa and Alex went the extra mile arranging for appropriate sleeping spots for my little grandchildren...and helpfully provided gates to keep the kids from hurtling down the stairs. You certainly couldn't ask for a more chef-friendly kitchen, our guys served a great pancake, eggs and bacon breakfast on Sunday morning. Dishes, utensils, pans--everything imaginable was provided. And I should mention the wine closet...well, we raised a glass or two or three. I had been a little concerned that we were far away from the wedding venue near the UW campus, but traversing downtown to the venue, even around kickoff time for a Seahawks game, took only 20 min. I would definitely recommend others consider this very affordable alternative to cold and isolated hotel rooms.

St. Paddy's Day Weekend Staycation in Seattle

We decided on renting a vacation home when one of my husbands high school buddies announced he was coming to town with his wife and baby girl. That combined with me, my husband and son, and the third high school friend and his girlfriend had us worried about trying to find places to accommodate such a large group for meals and general hang out time. We opted for renting this AMAZING space in West Seattle. There was plenty of room, a fabulous kitchen, a stunning view, and ample parking. The downstairs was an apartment of it's own that made caring for my three month old son in the middle of the night without disturbing everyone else in the house super easy. The main floor was comfortable and large enough for all of us to hang out without being on top of one another, and the view from the upstairs master suite was glorious. The patio is seriously great, and we wish we had stayed during warmer weather so we could have truly utilized it. The neighborhood is fun and very accessible. There are many grocery stores, restaurants, and shopping areas nearby, including a Metropolitan Market and Trader Joes for the foodies out there. Speaking of foodies, the kitchen is crazy awesome. There is a 6 burner gas stove, a large food prep area on the island with a prep sink/extra disposal, there is a pot filler faucet located over the stove, and a HUMONGOUS refrigerator freezer...with an extra fridge downstairs in case you needed more room. I highly recommend this property. Some of the décor was a little odd, but the house was comfortable and well stocked. Lisa was also kind enough to call me and let me know that someone had left a t-shirt and toothbrush in the house, and that she could mail it wherever it needed to go. One last thing, there are little instruction papers throughout the house that made everything super easy. Everything from how to use the remote control to operating the steam shower in the downstairs bathroom. It was nice to have an answer to all those little things that are just slightly different when you're in someone else's home.

Wallingford house

Loved the place. Needed a place in Seattle for my daughter's wedding. Had plenty of space to sleep groups of guests arriving from out of town. Was close to freeway and a major street to get around the city. Lots of charm and allowed us to bring our German Shepherd. Plenty of places to walk. Killer view of part of downtown Seattle when looking down the street. Only drawback was parking was limited, especially for multi-guests arriving in their own vehicles.

Alex/ Lisa Barkley

Owner's reply:

We have parking in our driveway for up to 3 cars and maybe room for one car on the street. Minimize having a bunch of cars at the house. Remember that we don't favor a party or large gathering in our home.

Fabulous house!

We had a great time at this house! It accommodated all of us great and there was lots of room for everyone! Kids had a blast in the yard and with all the space in the house. The house is set up beautifully and was extremely clean. Great location close to downtown, safeco, zoo etc. Will be making this house an annual stay! Thanks to the owner, very helpful! Also, Thai food down the road was amazing!

Alex/ Lisa Barkley

Owner's reply:

Thank you for the kind words; pleasure to share in your vacation & yes, please do make this a regular visit!

Couldn't have been greater!

There were 10 family members who came into Seattle to celebrate my daughter's wedding. We all were very comfortable with plenty of space for sleeping, luggage, food preparation, etc. The real treat was the family room area which was spacious, had a nice TV, piano and plenty of couches. The outside porches and location near the park made this house a bonus! This house really fit our needs and created a very enjoyable stay. A number of our Seattle friends who visited couldn't believe how lucky we were to have rented such a great house. If I ever go back to Seattle with a group, I would definitely stay at this house again!

This West Seattle home was beyond my expectations. It was so spacious and beautiful with a gourmet kitchen that couldn't be beat. I would highly recommend this place for anyone who wants a great retreat!

Family in town for our wedding

We did not stay at this house. It was for out-of town family that were here for our wedding. The house exceeded expectation. The family thoroughly enjoyed both the accommodations and the million dollar, 190 degree (?) view. Absolutely spectacular in all ways!

Wonderful rental

We rented this home for a family reuion/wedding reception. The home has lots of space for large gatherings and plenty of rooms for quiet time as well.It is beautifully designed with a wonderful kitchen and a luxurious master suite and bath. The location is very convenient and the Magnolia neighborhood is filled with beautiful homes and gorgeous front yards. The owner was very helpful and wonderful to work with. I would highly recommend this home to anyone wanting to enjoy a great Seattle experience. It's a very special place.
