Description

Our home is in a quiet neighborhood 1 block from Lake Washington where you can find beaches, parks, paths for walking, jogging and biking. Cafes, restaurants and bus transportation are within 2 blocks and we are about a mile from the Columbia City light-rail train station. The home was built in 1938 and has plenty of old school charm. A large, fully-fenced backyard includes a covered patio (the best room in the house...) to ensure outdoor living in unpredictable Seattle weather.

2,100 SF home; 1 story with a basement. Top floor includes 2 bedrooms (one with a queen bed and the other with 2 twin beds), 1 bathroom with tub and shower, living room, dining room and kitchen. The basement has a large family room (TV-room and kids' play room), plus one more bedroom with a full-size bed.

You'll have access to the whole house. There is an unfinished storage room in the basement with a washer/dryer that you can use plus a free standing toilet (odd, of course, but fully functional nonetheless). There is a driveway with space for 1 car, plus plenty of free, safe street parking.

We will be around for check-in and check out. We'd be happy to give advice or answer any questions you have. Just ask!

Our quiet, residential neighborhood is about 10-15 minutes driving from downtown Seattle. There are cafes and restaurants within a few blocks' walk and historic Columbia City is about 1.25 miles away (easily accessible by bike, foot or car) where there are several restaurant options, bars, live music, shops, galleries, yoga and grocery stores. The lake is steps away and a 3-mile-long public waterfront park stretches from Mt. Baker to Seward Park. There are plenty of beaches, walking/jogging paths, parks, etc, right outside your door. This is a wonderful place for swimming, kayaking, canoeing or paddle boarding and there are also a number of motorized boat launches within a few blocks. On Sundays, the city closes down Lake Washington Blvd to car traffic and the entire stretch is open for biking. This neighborhood is very family-friendly.

The house and hosts are lovely. It's a nice, very comfortable home that feels easy to live in, quaint with character and is convenient to a family friendly neighborhood, the lake is a block away and the outdoor deck is a great evening option.

The property is a lovely old house on a quiet residential street close to Lake Washington. It is very spacious and well-equipped. Not only were detergents, coffee and tea, etc., provided, but there were lost of cooking spices and other items that we were encouraged to use, which made cooking some meals there easier. The back yard has a wonderful deck, very well equipped for outdoor eating, complete with a high-end propane BBQ, as well as a fire pit and all the wood, kindling and fire starters needed to use it. We had two lovely suppers there and made S'mores over the fire pit. Our hosts were very welcoming, and communicated promptly when we had questions or concerns. They even brought over a spare propane tank when I asked where I could fill up the one attached to the BBQ in case it ran low. We had an awesome time there and would have no hesitation in returning.

The hosts were very responsive to all questions and when we encountered a problem, they responded right away. The house was just a block or two away from Lake Washington. It was great to be able to just walk down to the lake.

Response from Briana:
Thanks for the recommendations Sandra! Recycling instructions and extra towels for larger groups were things I hadn't thought about. I'm glad you were able to find the beach towels and use them. Yep, our basement has a distinctive 'Seattle damp' smell. We are planning a basement remodel this fall to remedy the situation... (and others - it's an old house always in need of something...). Take care!

Brianas place was just as described. The outside patio was beautiful, there was a fully equipped kitchen, beds were clean and more than enough towels were provided. The area around the house was beautiful, especially around the lake. I would definitely stay again! In addition we left something in the apartment and they were kind enough to send it back to us! A+++!

This home is in a lovely area, nice neighborhood. The space was very welcoming and easy to stay in. The backyard was especially inviting. This was only an overnight stay for us, but I can imagine spending a week here simply to enjoy the yard.

Briana was beyond accomodating. The home was lovely, comfortable, and wonderfully equipped. The location was convenient and scenic. We couldn't have had a more enjoyable stay!
