This small home is sparkling clean, but is furnished very sparsely. The biggest issue for us was the lack of window coverings in the living room. If you anticipate someone using the futon to sleep on (the house was described as sleeping four), window coverings are essential. Otherwise one feels exposed to the neighbors, traffic going by and the streetlights.
There is also a need for small mixing bowls/food prep bowls (we scrambled eggs in a coffee cup) more than one knife for cooking prep, and additional glassware, cooking spoons, etc. One evening, we had to go next door to borrow a can opener...something that should be in every rental home.
It would also be good to have additional dining chairs, more artwork, shelves in the bathroom for towels, additional hooks or rods in the bath, coat hooks in the entry, etc.
However, the things that are there are lovely...very comfortable bed, nice fixtures in the bathroom...this house definitely has potential!
It is close to highway access, making it easy to get around. Also close to Burien, which is a charming community. Grand Central Bakery has wonderful bread and good sandwiches, and a great Thursday Farmer's Market!
We enjoyed our stay and would stay again, once we were sure these additional items are supplied.
From the owner: "Christa, it was a pleasure hosting you! Thank you for the valuable feedback regarding some of the items that would make your stay more comfortable. Cheers!"
My son and I stayed in this beautiful cottage for the weekend so we could explore the surrounding Seattle area.
I was so impressed with this space from the moment I opened the front door. The kitchen is stocked with fine cooking oils and Cuisinart cooking pans, the tea kettle is by far the cutest one I’ve ever seen, the full size fridge and washer & dryer were a huge plus, the gorgeous shower was so relaxing, and the bed felt like heaven after a long day.
This is also a great place to stay if you have an early morning flight at Sea-Tac International airport. The hosts texted me upon my arrival, just to make sure we had everything we needed. Very thoughtful. I Will definitely be staying here again.
