Everything in our home is there for your enjoyment. We have toys for the kids and games for adults along with and a fully stocked kitchen fit for a chef. If you're a bookworm - we have plenty. We also have a large screen TV, craft projects for the kids and multiple musical instruments. There are so many ways to enjoy our expansive view deck, the French doors from our kitchen/dining area open fully onto this outdoor entertainment area. Stretch out with a book or magazine, invite friends over for sunny summer gatherings or relax in the hot tub while watching the sun set over the Olympics, Puget Sound and downtown Seattle.

Interaction with Guests

My husband and I split our time between our Downtown Seattle condo and our beautiful Leschi home. We both travel frequently with our businesses (I'm a sculptor and Billy is a musician). We may or may not see you during your stay but we have someone available 24 hours a day should anything come up. Our neighbors love us and we love them! Suffice it to say, you will have complete privacy while being taken care of simultaneously. Enjoy!

The Neighborhood

There are two beautiful Olmstead Parks (Frink and Coleman) a stones throw from the front door and you can easily wind your way down to the shores of Lake Washington. Super location close to downtown Seattle, just minutes from local restaurants, shops and transit. Catch a bus, drive run or bike to Seward park or over I-90 on a designated bike/jogging trail which takes you around Mercer island. You can go further and loop 50 miles around Lake Washington if you're up for something lengthier, then come home, cook dinner and relax.

Getting around

We have a bus stop 1 block from our doorstep which can take you or connect you to destinations all over Seattle and beyond quite easily. Easy connections to Light Rail, Amtrak, the Victoria Clipper and the entire Washington State Ferry system.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • We had a marvelous time in Cathy's home! The only drawback was that we lost one member to help unpack the car as soon as he saw the piano and guitars. 8) The house was very comfortable and conveniently located. It easily had enough room for the five of us - two couples and 1 singleton. The chairs in the TV room were easily the most comfortable I've ever been in, and both my husband and I loved the bed in the first bedroom - we even moved the mattress around to find the brand and model, it was sooooo comfortable!

    The kitchen was very well set up - we ate out only a few times for our entire stay, which saved a LOT of money - and very convenient for multiple people to help prepare meals. (A must for me - vacation should not mean I still do the same work, just in a different place.) Absolutely beautiful view as well.

    We had one minor glitch during our stay, which Cathy handled quickly and professionally. My husband was fairly skeptical of using this type of service (this was our first rental via AirBnB), and he absolutely raved about it after the first day.

    We definitely recommend this home to anyone else!

  • Beautiful house with stunning views of the lake and mountains. Cathy and Billy are delightful hosts and fascinating people to boot. Definitely recommend their place if your travels bring you to Seattle.

  • We stayed at Cathy's place for the holidays. It was a wonderful space and we had plenty of room.

    Cathy has first rate appliances in her kitchen, and the views are absolutely beautiful. In addition there was a great tv, access to movies and shows, and fast internet.

    We had a hassle free vacation and look forward to sharing her home again in the future.

  • I can only say great things about Cathy, Billy and their house! It was the perfect house in the perfect location to spend a week with the family to celebrate Thanksgiving. Cathy and Billy were very helpful and extremely accommodating. They truly cared about meeting all of our needs and made sure we had a relaxing and comfortable stay. Their kitchen is magnificent! It was fully stocked with every plate, cookware, steamer and roasting pan a cook could possibly need. The heated floors were an amazing bonus. Another incredible bonus was the hot tub. Not only was it the perfect way to relax after a long day, but the views were incredible. Mountains, more mountains, breathtaking sunsets and the Seattle skyline! It was definitely a positive experience and we'd love to go back.

  • Cathy's home was so much more than we expected. It had the most amazing views of both the city at sunset and the lake at sunrise. The kitchen was a dream kitchen fully stocked with views of the city from the window above the sink. It was such a joy to cook and spend time in the kitchen. The location of the home was also perfect! Took walks down by the lake and to the little downtown about .3 miles down the road. Cathy was also the best hostess, getting back to us right away with any questions we had. Thank you Cathy for making our stay in seattle so memorable! And thanks for the book! I was able to finish it on the plane and loved it!!

  • We stayed here for six weeks and felt totally at home. Cathy and Billy made sure we were set up with everything we needed and were helpful throughout. The house is beautiful and the views of lake Washington out the front were awesome, and the seattle skyline from the terraced area at the back was stunning.

    There's a small separate office space used in the basement and the guys down there were also super friendly, and didnt mind our four kids charging about upstairs.

    There are shops and parks nearby. We didnt have a car but this location was great, bus stop just round the corner, lots of things nearby.

    If we were in seattle again we'd stay here. Highly recommended

  • Beautiful, comfortable home full of character! There was plenty of room (and linens, towels, etc) for our family of 5. The space also worked great when our friends came over to "our house". The location provided easy access to downtown, I-5 and I-90. The walk down to Leschi is fun - though the walk back up is quite a bit more work :) Cathy is a wonderful host! She is friendly, was responsive to all of our questions and provides great detail on the neighborhood and house operations. We loved her bakery recommendation - Repast - yummy treats, friendly service and a walk so short you won't burn off the extra calories! Oh yeah, and the views are great too!

  • Cathy is the best, and so is her home! This was our second stay, and find it to be the perfect location (quiet neighborhood with the incredible sunrise/sunset views promised), easy access to family in Bellevue and friends in other parts of Seattle. Cathy was SUCH a good communicator leading up to and during our stay. Being quick to respond (and thorough in her responses) makes traveling/arranging details so much easier. I felt no stress. The house was perfect for our family, and it has super good energy. My only regret is not getting to meet Cathy in person.
