/**Please note this is a recent addition to the Seattle Vacation Home portfolio. Photos shown are of an identical unit next store. Furnishings are nearly identical.**/
This newly furnished and remodeled home has modern amenities, a quiet location, and proximity to all that Seattle has to offer.
The living areas are spread over four levels.
The entry level has two bedrooms. The first has a *king size bed* with two nightstands, a large closet, and direct access to the backyard patio, where you will find a dining table and barbecue.
The second bedroom offers great flexibility for groups of all configurations, with a twin over queen bunk bed, a twin trundle bed, and a large closet. French doors open to a small balcony overlooking the valley.
These two bedroom share a nearby full bathroom.
Up one level is the main living area. This open concept space has a chef's kitchen with modern counter tops and stainless steel appliances. This flows directly to the dining area with seating for 8, plus stools at the breakfast counter. Continuing from the dining area is the living room, furnished with a queen sleeper sofa futon (very comfortable mattress!), DVD, and cable TV. Enjoy our collection of games (Scrabble, cards, etc.) in front of the gas fireplace. This floor also features a powder room.
Continuing up to the top floor, you arrive at the stunning full-floor master suite. It has a *king size bed* with two nightstands. There is a dresser with mirror. From the master suite, you will enjoy the oversized patio with views overlooking Madison Valley. On a clear day, enjoy the Cascade Mountain Range in the distance. The master suite also has a huge walk-in closet. There is a 5-piece bathroom with soaking tub, his and her sinks, and a toilet separated by a door for privacy.
On the lowest level of the home (below the entry level, but still above ground) is the second master bedroom. It is furnished with a king size bed with two nightstands. This bedroom has en suite bathroom. French doors lead directly outside. The washer/dryer is also found on this floor.
This home is equipped with window air conditioners in the living room, master bedroom and bunk room.
Access to the home is provided without a cumbersome lock box or key exchange. Instead, you will choose a 4 digit code, and the electronic lock to the home will be programmed work your code for the duration of your stay.
You will have access to the entire home, including garage parking for one car (and plentiful free street parking for additional vehicles). You also have a dedicated storage unit, as well as bicycle storage (both available with prior arrangement).

This 4 bedroom home is central to everything Madison Valley has to offer: great restaurants, parks, hiking, supermarkets, day spas, and more.
Your hosts made Madison Valley their home when settling in Seattle 5 years ago... and haven't looked back since.
We love walking the streets of this neighborhood, and we will gladly suggest fun walks depending on your interests. Stroll to the beach at Madison Park. Walk by multi-million dollar estates. Discover hidden neighborhood gems such as the farmhouse with horses in the yard and the home that doubles as an eclectic art studio and antique truck gallery. Take a walk through the fabled Arboretum to Lake Washington.
Once you have worked up your appetite, enjoy the countless restaurants that Madison Valley ("Little Paris") has to offer. In addition to French gems, try our favorite tapas restaurant or the best Japanese food east of Tokyo. Take your morning coffee in one of numerous bakeries. Or opt for Thai, pan-Asian, craft pizza, Tex-Mex or more.
Our home provides easy access to Downtown (Pikes Place Market, Seattle Art Museum, Seattle Great Wheel), Seattle Center (Space Needle, Chihuly Glass Museum), South Lake Union (MOHAI), University of Washington, and Capitol Hill. All are accessible by car, bus (numerous bus lines a few blocks from home), or for the adventurous, by foot.
If all of this touring (and eating) has you tired, pamper yourself with a visit to a day spa or nail salon. There are several of each within a few blocks of home, and we are happy to point you in the right direction.
This home has a maximum sleeping capacity of 12. However, Seattle regulations state that no more than 8 *unrelated* guests are permitted per booking. Groups greater in size than 8 will need to affirm that there are no more than 8 unrelated individuals in the group.
