The orange house is as listed... centrally located for ease of travel, in a sweet and quiet residential neighborhood. We traveled to Seattle to visit our son who just moved there for his job. It turns out, we hosted Thanksgiving dinner for him and friends who were also new to the Seattle community. It was wonderful to have a fully and well equipped kitchen to prepare our feast. The upstairs master bedroom is spacious and soothing. On the ground level are two bedrooms with quite comfortable beds. There are a variety of sitting areas throughout the home, with artistically eclectic decor that was a delight. There are books everywhere! I loved being able to look at some of them to gather titles that are going on my "want to read" list. There is a small apartment below ground level which also rents out, and a cute little cottage in the back yard that rents as well. I've already recommended the Orange House to friends in Central Wisconsin who may be visiting Seattle in Spring of 2014. I like that there are three different types of rentals, all owned by the same person who is a wonderfully kind and generous host.
Myself and 7 other friends stayed in the orange house over Labor Day weekend, while attending a gaming convention. We had a fantastic time - the house is spacious enough that we were able to get all 8 people accommodated without issue. There are several bus options nearby for getting into town, as well as a supermarket and commercial district with some bars and restaurants. Joyce was very hospitable and gave us tips for local destinations. The house looked just like it was portrayed online, and there were plenty of extra pillows and sheets for all the guests.
That being said, I would hesitate to recommend this to groups that might be a bit rowdy, or stay up late. We received two warnings about our noise levels while we were in the house: once when we were up playing board games until midnight, and the second when we had come home from bars late. As noted in the house rules, the basement and cottage (both on the same property) are separate from the house, so you may be in close quarters with others who may not have the same late hours.
All in all, we enjoyed our stay and Joyce has a beautiful, classic home - but for our group, personally, we will probably look for a home with more relaxed noise and late night rules when booking next year.
We had a great time at the Orange House. It is in a lovely central part of Seattle in walking distance of Gasworks Park, Wallingford Playfield, the Fremont Troll, and lots of wonderful shops and restaurants. Joyce had guests in the cottage in back of the house who we thoroughly enjoyed meeting. It was like staying at a quaint b and b without the b.
My girlfriends and I had a wonderful stay in Joyce's home. We had the main house and this down stairs apartment. Everyone enjoyed the lovely garden, neighborhood and of course the classic turn of the
Joyce was helpful and welcoming. She made us feel right at home.
We had a wonderful time in this beautiful home for our Uncles 80th Birthday Party. The front steps made for a beautiful Family Picture (Joyce, we will be sending you that picture soon) and the well stocked kitchen provided the tools I needed to cook and extensive Cuban Spread and leave Joyce some treats. We missed our dog so having Cleopatra (Joyce's dog) around brought us much Joy. Joyce was very helpful with anything we needed...and gave us a great contact to Bedrock Glass...an awesome glass recycling place bought some great tiles now installed in my bathroom which I was in the process of remodeling when I visited. The house is beautiful, near great restaurants and shops, and the view from the master bedroom is priceless, We enjoyed our stay very much.
We just returned from a wonderful week-long stay in The Orange House. Joyce was there to greet us when we arrived, and made us feel right at-home. I have a seven-month-old daughter, and Joyce e-mailed me before our arrival offering a portable crib and sheets which I gladly accepted! The less we had to bring on the airplane, the better. We found the knick-knacks around the house charming and fun. The wood burning fireplace was also a plus - we sat around the fire, glass of wine in-hand each evening before bed. Beds were comfy, and kitchen is very well stocked! I highly recommend this house to anyone needing a comfortable and quiet place to stay. We found Wallingford to be a great location - central to everything (downtown Seattle and East side attractions) with wonderful shops and restaurants within walking distance. A safe and charming neighborhood!
I had a wonderful stay in the Orange House over the Labour Day long weekend while we went to Bumbershoot. The location was fantastic - a close walk to the grocery store, and two bus routes, which took us directly to Seattle Center.
The house was just as pictured. Clean and well equipped, and beautifully decorated. We used all three bedrooms and the air mattress in the living room, and everyone was comfortable. My husband and I were lucky enough to have the top suite, which was such a treat!
The hot tub and yard were a huge bonus! We enjoyed a couple breakfasts in the sunny front patio.
Our only complaint, which was nothing to do with the house, or Joyce, was the barking dogs across the street, which woke us up for an hour or so each early morning.
We would definitely rent this house again, and absolutely recommend it to other travellers.
We had a great time at Joyce's fantastic orange house in Seattle. Would go back any time.
The house was in a great location and walking distance to grocery store and restaurants with an easy drive to Seattle.
It was quite obvious that the home was more someones resident and not a rental. It made us fill uncomfortable that we were in her home while she was out in the cottage in the backyard. Too many personal effects, clutter. Bedrooms, bedding older and used.
I would reccomend only if you planned on being gone most of the time and only needed some place to sleep and shower.
Joyce made our stay very comfortable. She was very responsive, helpful and extremely caring. The house is very neat, extremely welcoming and close to major highways. I definitely will recommend staying at the orange house if you are in Seattle.
