About this listing
Ground floor of a sweet little 1-bedroom Craftsman home on North Beacon Hill in a safe, family-friendly, walkable neighborhood just south of Seattle. Great views of downtown Seattle, the Olympic mountains and the Puget Sound. Easy local driving, biking or public transit to downtown (less than 2 miles away), stadiums, museums, parks, Pike Place Market, the waterfront and the convention center. Conveniently located 2.5 blocks from the Beacon Hill Link Lightrail Station connecting the Sea-Tac airport to downtown Seattle, and easy walking distance (within 2-3 blocks) to a Red Apple grocery store, library, restaurants, bars, hair salon and multiple businesses. Just 1.5 blocks to an overlook park with sweeping views of the city, mountains and Puget Sound. Short walk to beautiful Jefferson Park with its wonderful new playground, water park, golf course and community center. Easy access to the I-5, West Seattle, Boeing Airfield and Sea-Tac airport (20 minute drive or short ride on Lightrail). House is very bright and cheery with large leaded-glass fir windows. Cook in our newly remodeled kitchen and have a long soak in the clawfoot tub. Home has cable TV, wireless internet, stereo and Blu-ray DVD player. This small, clean, smoke-free house was our first happy family home which we lovingly renovated and restored until recently when we relocated to Europe for a job transfer. It is fully furnished and the kitchen is well-stocked with all our kitchen gadgets, espresso machine and appliances. The bedroom has 1 queen-size bed which sleeps 2 adults and all linens, pillows and mattress are brand new. If you are traveling with children please let us know; we have a toddler mattress, children's bedding, a highchair and toys to make little ones feel welcome stored in the attic and we will arrange for them to be brought down for your visit. The attic is used as storage space for our own belongings and is closed off from the ground floor of the house with a locked door, so the stairs are inaccessible. The house is set well back and is elevated from the street, and has a large front yard. Free street parking with guest pass available. We care about the friends and neighbors who live in our great neighborhood, and are happy to share our space with considerate and respectful guests. No smoking or pets. Our time zone (CET) is 9 hours ahead of Seattle but we will respond as quickly as possible to booking inquiries. Our neighbourhood businesses recently received a nice review in Seattle Magazine, and you might enjoy reading the Beacon Hill blog to learn more about our area.

We have great time at Candance place. The cottage is charming, bright and cozy, in a very quiet neighborhood and only three blocks from the train station, ten minutes to downtown area. Good location and easy to come back and rest after an intense day.
Candance was very nice and responsive to our questions and gave quick solutions to small inconveniences. The cleaning lady was extremely helpful as well.
Overall, we recommend the cottage as a very good quality/price alternative to visit Seattle.
Great little, cozy place. Enjoyed the experience, and if the next time I'm out in Seattle and need a place in the area, I'll definitely see if this place is available! Finally, great communication and coordination with Candace, so thanks for everything.
Candice made sure we had plenty of information about the house, location, which was a very nice quiet neighborhood etc before our arrival.
Candace was a very nice host. The house was exactly as shown in the pictures and the location is great. It is located in a safe neighborhood The place is beautiful and very comfortable !
The host canceled this reservation the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
My boyfriend and I stayed at Candace's house for two days this past weekend. The photos are spot on! It's an adorable, cozy home in the quiet neighborhood of Beacon Hill. The house was well-stocked with extra bedding, toiletries, kitchen supplies and more. The location of the home is also great; just a 10-15 minute drive to downtown, and there are several restaurants and bars within walking distance.
Candace checked in on us to make sure everything was going okay, which was very thoughtful. Overall, we had a really wonderful stay!
This place was a cute little house and enjoy our stay. Wish there were curtains for the big windows in the living room though.
About the Host, Candace
Hi there! I'm a Canadian healthcare provider and am married to Martin, an Austrian journalist who is currently working for Amazon. We love Seattle and our friendly, community-oriented neighbourhood of North Beacon Hill where this little house was our first family home. We enjoy travel, good food and music, gatherings with our friends and recently...kids. We've outgrown our cheery little house with the addition of two little ones and have recently moved to Luxembourg for Martin's new job and to be closer to his family. We hope you enjoy Seattle and the wonderful experiences it has to offer! Some of our favourites are: Silent-Movie Mondays at the Paramount, SIFF (Seattle International Film Festival), the Seattle Symphony, kayaking on Lake Union, mornings at the Market, ferry rides to the islands and and quick day-trips into the beautiful nature all around the Puget Sound.
