Reviews for this vacation home rental in Seattle, Washington
Grand Rapids, MN
January 1, 2016
Our family gathered from all over the country to spend the holiday together, and it was just the right house for all of us! Plenty of room to gather in the living area, cook together and eat at a large dining table, plenty of beds, bedrooms, and bathrooms. Our experience renting through Vacation Home Rentals was very easy; our contact with the owner was also very good - she responded very quickly to our questions or concerns. She even got a Christmas tree for us to decorate! Her descriptions of local grocery stores, nearby parks and downtown attractions were accurate; the house was clean and well-equipped for anything we wanted to do (cook, movies, games). This was our first time using an online rental for a home, but will seriously consider it again for future family gatherings.

The owners were extremely welcoming and polite when we first arrived. We have been lucky to find such an amazing place to stay at during our trip to Seattle. If I was coming to Seattle again this would be my choice for my stay.

This home was a lovely place to stay while visiting Seattle! The owner, Jan, went out of her way to accommodate our party of six, including a baby and a toddler. The home is stunning and is located in a beautiful area with easy access to all the places we were interested in visiting. One difference we found from the previous rental by owner we had used was the fact that Jan lives in the home while you are there. This was not uncomfortable in the least, as she definitely gives you your "space", while being very gracious, friendly, and attentive to your needs. There are two dogs and a cat living in this home, but they are kept in a separate area, so no bother at all. (Just a "heads up" in case of allergies.). We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this home and would definitely stay here again! Thanks again for everything, Jan!!
Provides for an awesome Seattle/WA experience!

The property is spacious, comfortable, and convenient to get to all the Seattle hotspots. The owner is friendly, helpful, and extremely gracious! We were provided with lists of things to do and local places to go. The location has neighborhood look and beauty, but has a city feel with its city accessibility and proximity to stores. Water is visible from the property, and great sights of the city skyline and Puget Sound can be experienced from an extremely short drive or walk. We were able to make convenient day trips to Orcas Island and Olympia National Park. Mt St Helens and Rainier are accessible as well.
