The rental is a spacious, well-lit mother-in-law apartment located in the basement of a 1920’s “Seattle box” style single family house. The house is located in the middle of the charming Wallingford neighborhood and is within easy walking distance of a grocery store, myriad restaurants, cafes and other services, and is also near Gas Works Park, the Burke-Gilman Trail, Green Lake, the Woodland Park Zoo, and the University of Washington. Downtown Seattle is 20 minutes away by bike or bus, with the bus stop being one block away. Free on-street parking is also available.
The apartment has a separate entrance along the side of the house, a well equipped kitchen, washer and dryer, wifi and AppleTV. The bedroom has a queen sized bed and the living room has a sofa bed. Note that although the ceiling has good soundproofing, you may hear an occasional low rumble from the three boys above! The property is kid-friendly, has chickens and a grey cat named “Cloud,” a basketball hoop, and a great deck with views of Lake Union and downtown Seattle.
No smoking in the unit or on the property; no pets.
We enjoyed staying at David's place in Wallingford.
The pictures offered are quite accurate as representations of what the space looks like.
David himself was very punctual in responding to emails and letting us know where things were, how to access the apartment, and what materials would be inside.
Great host, great apartment, and terrific neighborhood!
Great apartment, perfect location in Wallingford. Walking distance to a million restaurants, bars, etc in Wallingford, Fremont, and near UW. David was a great host and very helpful. Apt was spacious for two, but you could do four using the fold out bed. Lots of books, plenty of cooking equipment.
Super cute and clean little hide away. Very close UofW and downtown. We would totally stay here again.
The basement apartment was clean, comfortable, roomy and had everything we needed. The towels were particularly fluffy. I would stay again. It would be a great place to stay for a longer time.
David and Nancy were very nice. I met them outside while they were playing with their boys- were super accommodating getting me set up with a bike for the morning! The apartment was very comfy and exactly what I needed for the weekend! Neighborhood is perfect, safe, and so convenient to UW, Wallingford shops and restaurants, and the Burke Gilman trail.
This Wallingford suite is charming! We had a fantastic stay in this lovely neighbourhood. The suite is accurately described by David. It is really clean, furnished nicely, fully equipped kitchen, washer/dryer and lots of great books to read. This would be a fantastic place for short or long term stay. Also walking distance to some great restaurants, shops both in Wallingford and Freemont. No problem parking on the street and it’s free, instead of $30-$60 a night in downtown Seattle. Check in was efficient and David was attentive to any questions we had. You can even borrow some bikes to take advantage of the trail that runs along the water with fantastic views of the city and to some tasty breweries! I would definitely stay here again.
David was very attentive, and quick to communicate (both prior to arrival, and during). He anticipated needs prior to my arrival (which was very helpful, including arrival time).
He was always polite and respectful.
The flat was also wonderful and as advertised, clean, very close to metro to get to downtown. Wallingford had many restaurants and shops worth seeing, and Fremont and University City nearby.
Cozy during the rain, too.
I am an overwhelmed father, going gray raising three boys with my partner Nancy! Our family enjoys camping, skiing, and cycling. When not parenting or coaching my sons' soccer, basketball and baseball teams, I am a landscape architect and urban designer with a focus on making streets more walkable and bikeable. I am also a hardcore and self-righteous but law abiding bike commuter.
