The space

Spacious (1130 sq ft) 2 bedroom 1 bathroom house on quiet street, 3 blocks from bus stop to downtown. Walk to Wallingford shops/restaurants or to trendy Fremont.

Located a mere 4.5 miles from downtown Seattle, the highly coveted Wallingford neighborhood is bustling with restaurants, cafes, pubs, bookstores, boutique wine/beer shops, clothing shops, grocery stores (open 24/7 : a 15 minute walk), farmers' markets (summer only), and much more.

More than 50 eateries ranging from sandwich shops to white tablecloth fine dining are within a leisurely 15 minute stroll (half mile) from the house. You'll need two minutes to reach La Cantinetta, a hip Italian place with a lively bar; 8 minutes to The Essential Bakery for their fresh croissants, bread, and espresso; 15 minutes to the famous Molly Moon ice-cream shop.

Expand your walk to 25 minutes (one mile) to the funky Fremont neighborhood with its eclectic outdoor art, numerous restaurants, clothing shops, and music venues. The year round Sunday Flea Market is a local institution.

Super popular Green Lake and The Woodland Park Zoo are 2 miles away. Wallingford Park is an 8 minute walk, and offers tennis courts, soccer field, 1/2 court basketball, and jungle gyms. Gasworks Park is 7 minutes from the house, and offers fantastic views of downtown Seattle and the seaplanes on Lake Union.

The Burke-Gilman Trail (walk, run, bike) is also a 7 minute stroll, and can lead you west via Fremont (1 mile), Ballard (2.5 miles), to Shilshole Bay Marina/Golden Gardens (5 miles) and the salt water beaches. Head east to reach The University of Washington campus (1.2 miles), or keep on going until you reach Chateau Ste Michelle Winery (23 miles).

Our house is in a quiet residential neighborhood, but super close to activities which can keep you busy day or night. Although in a dense urban environment, it offers a quiet and private front porch and backyard, with free street parking.

We live in this house, so the kitchen is well equipped: gas stove, microwave, toaster, glasses, plates, salt/pepper/spices, etc. We have another Seattle property, and move there while you are renting the house.

The living room has a 32 inch LCD TV (no cable, but receive 20+ channels), DVD player, Apple TV w/Netflix, and stereo. Each bedroom offers 100% cotton sheets on queen sized beds and the tiled bathroom has a combo tub/shower. Wi-Fi reaches from front to back porch. The house has a nice open feeling, with lots of west facing windows.

Come for 2 days or 2 weeks, but be careful...this place grows on you!

Special note: although we don't own a cat (nor any other pets), every few months we foster a cat from the local animal shelter. Our house is quite clean, but cat dander is almost impossible to eradicate. If you are highly allergic to cat dander our home might not be for you.

Craig’s place is perfect for travelers wanting to stay near the city but in a quieter area, with shops and restaurants within walking distance. This Airbnb is fully stocked, a true home away from home and quiet and comfortable. The front porch and back patio are surrounded by bea…

Craig and Molly's house is darling, artfully appointed, in a super location and was everything we hoped for on our trip to Seattle. I can, without reservation, recommend their house as a solid place to stay. Many nice touches like bed heaters and willingness to meet us at a late …

This is the second time my mother and aunt have rented Craig's house when visiting me in Seattle. Once again they just loved staying there! The location is fantastic and the house is just adorable. I highly recommend it for visitors to the area.

Great place out of the downtown craziness but close to wonderful food, and shopping. We will stay here again when life brings us back to Seattle. The local neighborhood is classic old style Seattle updated with all the amenities you want. The craftsman style home was warm and …
