Об этом жилье
Centrally located in the heart of Seattle in the coveted Madrona neighborhood. Enjoy the City as a Seattle native! Walk four blocks to a wonderful selection of fine restaurants, shops, parks and views. Very easy downtown or Capitol Hill access from this comfortable, urban oasis with many great ammenities such as cable and FAST fiber optic WIFI for your business or trip planning needs.
One of our favorite things about the home is the view overlooking downtown, Madrona Valley and Capitol Hill from the master bedroom (city lights at night!). The front porch and sitting area next to the kitchen are both great for enjoying Stumptown coffee. Kitchen has stainless steel appliances and includes gas range, automatic ice-maker, filtered water, disposal, and dishwasher. Samsung high efficiency washer and dryer in the large unfinished basement. Cable TV on new 55" inch HD Samsung in main living room next to a newer high output gas fireplace that turns on and off with a handy remote control. High speed WiFi via fiber-optic cable.
Guests will have access to the entire home, grassy back yard (and new 4 burner BBQ) and patio, front porch, and basement complete with newer Samsung washer and dryer. Home has a convenient, electronic front door lock.
PARKING: Ample street parking in front of the house that is free of hourly parking limits! The local custom on 30th Ave is to park ONLY in front of your residence when possible - so please try to park only in front of the house. Also, please don't park directly across from any driveway because doing so makes it difficult for folks to back out. Please, see house manual for more important details. If you have questions about the parking please don't hesitate to ask. It is plentiful, free and quite secure.

Другие важные подробности
Like many garages in the Madrona neighborhood, ours is quite old and unimproved. Please do not park in the garage. There is ample street parking.
We want you to fully enjoy your stay!
Here are a few rules that help us keep the home available to all.
No parties: this is an urban residential neighborhood. In consideration of our neighbors, please no loud voices, music, etc. past 10:00 PM. Move it inside and use good judgement.
No parking in the driveway or garage at anytime.
Guests that request an early check in and/or late checkout, will be asked to pay a $30 fee. Late check out and early check in requests require considerable coordination with the housekeeper, calendar review and time to coordinate the details.
Again, please keep evening noise at a level that is respectful of the neighbors.
Please, rinse, load and run the dishwasher prior to your departure.
Those making the reservation must be at the home during their booking dates.

My wife, myself and our two boys (ages 5 and 2) love the Seattle neighborhood, Madrona! We can often been seen walking to one of our many of our favorite breakfast joints The Hi-Spot or heading to the Madrona Park Playground. We make the most of being minutes from downtown attractions like the Pike Place Market, Seattle Aquarium, The Big Wheel, theaters, shopping and sports venues like CenturyLink and Safeco Stadiums. Madrona is our base for easy freeway access in any direction - great for weekend trips to the San Juan Islands, Olympic Peninsula Beaches, the Cascades, Mount Rainier, Portland and Vancouver. In the winter, we ski as often as we can and enjoy coming home to family time, wine and cocktails by the cozy fireplace. We love going for walks around the quaint neighborhood and exploring the many infamous Madrona staircases while walking our yellow lab, Otis. We enjoy running and biking along lake Washington with friends and meeting at Seward Park. We also really enjoy being able to book a babysitter on short notice and head a few blocks over to the bustling neighborhood of Capitol Hill for dinner and shows at places like Neumos, Quinn's, Spinasse, Monsoon, etc. We also really like the many kid friendly places in the area as well like Madrona Arms, Chuck's Hop Shop, and Flying Squirrel Pizza.
One of our favorite activities in the summer is camping along the coast at places like Shi Shi Beach or taking in a concert like the Doe Bay Festival on Orcas Island.
When we can we love to travel to Paris. We lived in Paris for a year after we met and taught English both at the University level and privately. Great stories to tell here!
Favorite movies are Breaking Away, Death Proof and Donnie Darko.
A few of our many mottoes is "say yes to new adventures!" or "collect moments not things".
We are renting our first home (this home) for a short term while we remodel another home in Madrona about 8 blocks away. We wanted a slightly larger floor plan now that our two boys have grown. We will be staying at this home on and off during construction.
