Description

The space

Thomas Lodge "New York" is fresh off of a complete overhaul. It is located on the upper floor of a small building with just 4 homes.

You enter into the building and into your home with your own chosen code that will be programmed into the electronic locks... no cumbersome organizing for a key exchange! No concerns about arriving and departing at odd hours.

The condo opens to the kitchen and living area. The open concept living area/kitchen features a dining table for 6 (expands to accommodate more), wall-mounted television with robust DirecTV package and DVD player, queen size sleeper sofa (with highest end sofa bed mattress on the market) and a kitchen counter with three bar stools. The kitchen has brand new stainless steel appliances including dishwasher, oven, electric range and microwave. The living room has French doors leading to a large balcony (over 100 square feet) with a beautiful view of Madison Valley.

Off the kitchen is a hall. Here, you will find a full-size stackable washer and dryer. The smaller of two bedrooms is on your left. It is furnished with a queen size bed. This bedroom has direct access to the large balcony mentioned earlier.

There is a full bathroom just across the hall.

The master bedroom is at the end of the hall. It is furnished with a *king size bed* and nightstand, plus a dresser with mirror. There is a spacious closet. The master bedroom also features an en suite full bathroom.

All bedrooms and the living area offer plenty of natural light from the windows, but shades provide adequate darkness for lazy mornings sleeping in.

With this rental, you also get dedicated, secure off-street parking in the garage just below the building.

*****

This home is coming fresh out of a total renovation in November 2015. In additional to brand new kitchen appliances, there is new hardwood flooring throughout the living/dining space and the bathrooms are freshly tiled. The wood cabinets and granite counter tops have been newly installed. The doors have been replaced. All of the furniture has just been delivered.

Each unit in this building has been decorated to pay homage to a meaningful location from our past. This home has a New York theme, with tasteful and playful decor celebrating Andy's hometown and our shared affinity for the Big Apple.

Guest access

Access to the home is provided without a cumbersome lock box or key exchange. Instead, you will choose a 4 digit code, and and the electronic lock to the home will be programmed work your code for the duration of your stay.

You will have access to the entire condo, including garage parking for one car (and plentiful free street parking for additional vehicles). Additional garage parking may be available with prior arrangement.

Interaction with guests

Your hosts, Andy and Lynne, live right down the block. Unless we are out of town, we are here to welcome you and help you with any of your needs during your stay. We are happy to offer you advice for sightseeing, restaurant recommendations, and even some budget saving tips and coupons.

Guests will receive, in advance, our comprehensive homemade visitors' guide to Seattle, packed with our personal recommendations for dining, activities, and much more.

Do you plan to cook during your stay? By special advanced arrangement (depending on availability), we will fulfill your grocery list and have your home stocked for your arrival.

The neighbourhood

Your hosts made Madison Valley their home when settling in Seattle 6 years ago... and haven't looked back since.

We love walking the streets of this neighborhood, and we will gladly suggest fun walks depending on your interests. Stroll to the beach at Madison Park. Walk by multi-million dollar estates. Discover hidden neighborhood gems such as the farmhouse with horses in the yard and the home that doubles as an eclectic art studio and antique truck gallery. Take a walk through the fabled Arboretum to Lake Washington.

Once you have worked up your appetite, enjoy the countless restaurants that Madison Valley ("Little Paris") has to offer. In addition to French gems, try our favorite tapas restaurant or the best Japanese food east of Tokyo. Take your morning coffee in one of numerous bakeries. Or opt for Thai, pan-Asian, craft pizza, Tex-Mex or more.

Our home provides easy access to Downtown (Pikes Place Market, Seattle Art Museum, Seattle Great Wheel), Seattle Center (Space Needle, Chihuly Glass Museum), South Lake Union (MOHAI), University of Washington, and Capitol Hill. All are accessible by car, bus (numerous bus lines a few blocks from home), or for the adventurous, by foot.

If all of this touring (and eating) has you tired, pamper yourself with a visit to a day spa or nail salon. There are several of each within a few blocks of home, and we are happy to point you in the right direction.

Getting around

We live a few short blocks from bus lines that will take you to Seattle's numerous neighborhoods (Madison Park, Capitol Hill, Downtown, Belltown, Seattle Center, South Lake Union). Queen Anne, Ballard, and Fremont are more easily accessed by car. Our home offers garage parking for one car. Street parking for additional cars is plentiful and free.

Other things to note

Is your group larger than this home will accommodate? We can host up to *228* guests across our portfolio --- with all homes located within a few blocks!

We have 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 bedroom homes (and one 7 bedroom castle!) all in a very compact area... perfect for large groups, wedding guests, reunions, corporate retreats, etc.

Andy is a true professional with style and class! He got me and my group into the air BnB super quickly and checked in multiple times during our stay to make sure everything was going smoothly. Upon arrival, the place was clean and well equipped complete with complimentary wine and snacks! I will definitely come back and rent again when I visit Seattle. Thanks for everything, Andy!

Andy is a very gracious host. Very helpful. We were originally scheduled to stay in his Thomas Lodge: New York home but when I told him I had a electric vehicle, he was accommodating to upgrade us to his Great Wall home so that I could use the garage for charging; at no extra charge. The home was beautiful and well laid out. No major complaints. The garage was tough to get in/ out of - very tight fit.
Andy User ProfileAndy is a superhost.
Response from Andy:
Oh great... now everyone will know that the secret password for a major upgrade is "electric car" :) Seriously, though, thanks for the stay, and I am glad it worked out so well for your group. Thanks for being such great guests. [Just a note for shoppers for our "New York" listing - the garage comment here pertains to our "Great Wall" home, where we do indicate in the listing that it is for a small-ish car. We are always intent on managing expectations!]

Seattle Vacation Home provides professional quality furnished housing with a personal touch. We offer exceptional value to our visitors by providing high-end accommodations at a reasonable price. We treat our teammates with respect by working in a partnership model and offering above-market pay. We are thoughtful about our impact on our neighbors, our environment, and the city of Seattle.

From Andy: My wife Lynne and I are world travelers. We've traveled to ~60 countries around the world... on all 7 continents! While we enjoy a fancy hotel now and then, nothing beats the comforts of a real HOME away from home. Having rented countless vacation homes during our time, we have copious notes of what we do and don't like. This passion for travel has led us to build Seattle Vacation Home, a collection of 20 high-end homes in Seattle that are an example of all the best traits we have found in our vacation rentals. Whether you are coming to Seattle for vacation, business, relocation, medical treatment, a cruise, a wedding or any other reasons, we promise you a fantastic stay with Seattle Vacation Home.
