About this listing
This updated top floor duplex is located in one of Wallingford's charming turn-of-the-century homes. It sits on a quiet street with a private entrance, tall ceilings, hardwood floors, and a gorgeous views of Downtown across Lake Union.
The living area has seating for 4, dining for 4, French doors leading to a balcony, a large flat-panel TV set with cable and Roku, and a lovely view of the Seattle skyline across Lake Union. The balcony has an electric smoker, grill and small table with seating for 2. The large kitchen is fully stocked. A hallway leads to a laundry room, full bathroom, and private bedroom.
The bedroom features a comfortable queen-sized bed, a walk-in closet, and a desk. The living room has an uncommonly comfortable queen-size sleeper sofa with a thick foam mattress. This unit sleeps 4 adults comfortably.
If you are not already familiar with Wallingford, you are in for a treat. The house is located within 6 blocks of some of the best restaurants, coffee shops, storefronts, parks, and sights that Seattle has to offer. Walk to Lake Union, Gasworks Park, the Burke-Gilman Trail, Fremont, the University of Washington and more.
We are a 2-minute drive to 99 (Aurora), 5 minutes to I-5, and 5-10 minutes to the 520 bridge. This provides the perfect commute to locations throughout Seattle and the East side. Street parking is available, and a dedicated driveway is available upon request.
Interaction with guests
The unit is entirely private and you should feel free to interact with us as much or as little as you desire. We enjoy having guests and meeting people from every region and walk of life, but we also respect your privacy. My family splits our time between the downstairs (Garden) unit, our South Seattle home, and a sailboat in Ballard. I am always available to answer any questions you may have or suggest fun activities in Seattle and the Puget Sound.
Other things to note
We offer a very well-stocked kitchen. You would be hard-pressed to find it lacking anything, even if cooking a Thanksgiving dinner. We also offer child-friendly plastic eating utensils and toys/books for a wide range of ages. A crib and high chair are available upon prior request.
Also, please note that the air conditioner is a portable a/c unit installed in the bedroom. Seattle homes do not have central air conditioning.
This is a non-smoking, family friendly property. Smokers absolutely must smoke outside, not near open doors or windows, and must immediately dispose of their cigarette butts rather than bringing them inside to place in a trash can. Failure to adhere to the smoking, event, and party rules will constitute forfeiture of your entire damage deposit.
Please refer to our rental agreement for anything else you may want to know, or feel free to contact us.
Cancel up to 5 days before your trip and get a full refund. Cancel within 5 days of your trip and the first night is non-refundable, but 50% of the cost for the remaining nights will be refunded.

I have been in Seattle for almost 20 years, and my husband grew up in Portland. Together, we can answer any questions you may have or suggest fun activities in Seattle, Portland, and the Puget Sound.
We live on a vintage sailboat and we spend time at each of our listings: Portland is our second home, the Hideaway is home to our art studio, and Wallingford is our stomping ground.
We spend our spare time raising an amazing family, making and appreciating arts and crafts, and roaming the Puget Sound region with our kiddos.
