A contemporary home in a quiet friendly neighborhood.
The house is centrally located just four miles from Microsoft, four miles from Chateau St Michelle/ Woodinville Wineries. It is only 20 minutes from downtown Seattle. Most nearby cities have weekly farmers markets. There are outdoor movies and several outdoor concert venues as well. Mount Rainier is a 2 hour drive away. There are many islands and salt water beaches that can be reached by car or ferry for day trips.

The space

A nice, quiet neighborhood

The inside is open concept so it's easy to have a conversation with family and friends while cooking dinner.

The kitchen windows can be used as a pass through for dining outside.

Lots of dimmer switches to customize your lighting needs! Double click 2 times quickly to go to full power or one time to go to a pre-set. One gentle hit turns off the lights all the way.

Guest access

You will have full use of the house and yard.

The house keys work in every door. Make sure to lower the front lock on the side of the door so you don't lock yourself out when you are home!

All bathroom towels are new and a variety of colors so they can be color coded for each family member to keep track of them.

Water plants/mow the lawn if you have time and enjoy doing so!

Interaction with guests

My Mom, Jane, will be your local host and available by cell. She lives nearby if you need to reach her for any reason.

We have friendly neighbors who might share their garden bounty!

Other things to note

There are many books available in the master bedroom. In the family room there are games, playing cards and children's books. We have a few tennis racquets and balls, one bike, badminton racquets and a few golf clubs with foam balls for fun in the backyard. Just ask Jane if you are nterested!

There is no tv except for a DVD player and a nearby Redbox at a very close Walgreens/Safeway grocery store. You can always watch online!

Please be careful of the granite counters and natural stone in the bathrooms. If cleaning products are left for long periods of time damage can be done even to the granite! The gas cooktop is also easily prone to get scratched so use extra clean paper towels if necessary but not scrubber parts of sponges!

House does not have air conditioning but it does have a whole house fan that can be used during the day with all the skylights and windows closed. In the early evening when the temperature in the house is almost the same as outside it's better to open all windows and skylights to allow the wind to cool down the house! We usually leave most windows and skylights especially with the master bedroom window open all night which cools the house down a lot! Drop the thermostat bottom pad to make sure setting is on "cool" and fan from auto to "on" and you should hear the fan start. There is an electrostatic dust particle "zapper" so you
might hear snapping sounds but everything is ok!!
*small parties are allowed if not too loud or late into the evening so our neighbors are not disturbed!

Kristy's home was a fantastic place to stay. My daughter and I were there for several nights. It's in a very quiet and very safe neighborhood. There was a bike to borrow but instead I walked the neighborhood each night and met nice neighbors and friendly people. Some Airbnb options feel like a total vacation place where you end up searching for a bottle opener and drinking out of coffee cups or juice glasses because that's all there is. Others feel like your last college apartment, if not worse. This experience was like being in our own home but better. My home never gets the great morning sunlight that Kristy's does. Her home had everything one could ask for, including a big beautiful yard. The beds were comfortable and the house was very clean. All the appliances are new or in perfect condition and the kitchen had absolutely everything one could ask for. She even had baking supplies if we had made the time to bake. My daughter and I had a long summer of traveling away from home and Kristy's home was the perfect repose. Our check in/out was simple and there wasn't anything more we could have hoped for.

The house was perfect for my vacation plans. The location was also convenient for me to enjoy Downtown Seattle (approximately 20-45 minute drive, depending on traffic) and a reasonable drive to Mt. Rainier (approximately 2.5 hours away). Mostly everything I wanted to do on my vacation was all reasonably located. The neighborhood was quiet, away from hustle and bustle of the city. About a few miles away were plenty of restaurants in a nearby town called Bellevue. Groceries and convenient stores are located near the house also. What I love most about the house was how welcoming the hosts were. They made sure that the house met my expectations. Needless to say it exceeded those expectations. The house itself features 2 bathrooms and 2 bedrooms. Having two showers expedited the time to get ready for my guests and I, which meant more time to enjoy Seattle. The only regret I have was that I didn't spend enough time at the house to relax which has two living room areas and a patio room deck. There were a great selection of books available to read, most of which were classic or New York Times bestsellers . Great
