Elegant & Spacious Home with WiFi & Convenient Locale Near Volunteer Park

Whether it's business or pleasure that brings you and your group to the Emerald City, this house gives everyone something to love. Nearby parks, exciting sightseeing, and easy access to business hubs like downtown and nearby Redmond ensure a memorable Seattle getaway!

This home for 10 lies in the northern end of Seattle's Capitol Hill neighborhood and the peaceful surrounding area features the lush green paths of Volunteer Park. With modernist sculptures lining the pathways, top-notch tennis courts, and amazing views of the reservoir atop the Water Tower Observation Deck, you can easily wile away the days simply exploring the park. With a bus stop a few blocks away, however, you're only minutes from the busier part of the city. The shops and restaurants lining Broadway are yours to visit and the bus line will even take you as far as downtown, for visits to the Space Needle or Pike Place Market.

The quiet garden in the backyard is a great place to decompress at the end of the day. If it's raining too hard to appreciate the shoots of bamboo or the rustling of the trees, head inside and warm up by one of the many fireplaces. The downstairs living area lets you relax on stylish leather furnishings, while the upstairs family room features stuffed armchairs and a flatscreen cable TV.

There's free WiFi throughout the house, so it's easy to share your experiences with your loved ones back home. Give them a glimpse of the views from the upper-level windows and deck, or take a selfie on the porch's rocking bench. When it's time for dinner, the kitchen's stainless steel appliances and spacious countertops make whipping up a delicious meal almost as enjoyable as eating it. If you can, try to time your trip with the 4th of July or New Year's Eve. This home's view of the Space Needle fireworks is unbelievable!

Save your dates now and get a head start on your next Seattle getaway!

Large, beautiful home with plenty of space. However, there were a few hiccups in our stay. The entire third floor where the only tv was did not have heat. We notified Vacasa immediately, while we appreciated the two small space heaters they dropped off the following day, I was very disappointed that Vacasa only credited us $50.78 despite not having heat in a third of the house for half of our stay. In addition, I noticed a light on in the basement, there is a separate exterior door with a mail slot that faces the graveyard. When I asked vacasa they responded with “I don’t have any information indicating that there ought to be someone in the basement” and “I will inquire about that from the local staff”. I never got a clear answer back after asking several times. I understand that many of these old houses have multiple units, but I expect transparency in the listing as we were under the impression it was a single-family home.
Manager response:
Hi, Karen, thank you for your feedback. While we are happy you were able to enjoy the interior and the space at this property, we are deeply saddened to hear about the issues you experienced. Our sincerest apologies for the lack of heat on the third floor where the TV was located. To clarify, there was additional compensation offered for these issues and we hope that it has helped with some resolution. Regarding the basement, it is primarily for the owner's storage room and they installed the mail slot so that the mail would not be delivered to the home on the guest-facing side, due to privacy concerns. They, unfortunately, forgot to turn off the light in the basement during their last home visit and did not want to enter the home during a guest stay, we apologize for any inconvenience caused by this confusion. Again, we regret that we were not able to provide you with the exceptional service that we strive to provide all of our guests and look forward to another opportunity to host you for a superior experience!

Warm, comfortable home in a great location

My 5 friends and I had this for just a short gaming weekend, and it was absolutely perfect. The kitchen had everything we needed to make all our meals, the beds were comfortable and it was great having a separate room for everyone at night. But more than that it was just so homey, it felt like the exact kind of place that three generations would gather for a magical Christmas morning.

We loved the location - Close to everything yet tucked away in a quiet residential street. We love the size of house and number of bedrooms. That said, there are some housekeeping items that could use some attention: About 1/2 of all the light fixtures did not work or had burned out light bulbs. Many of the windows cannot be opened, and most of the operable windows do not have screens - opening the windows was necessary to cool the house down for the evening. The kitchen was well equipped and all the spaces were well furnished. This was a very nice family getaway and we would stay here again if the minor details listed above are taken care of.
Manager response:
We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We will be sure to pass your suggestions along to our local manager who will work with our homeowner to make necessary upgrades. We look forward to hosting you again!

We throughly enjoyed our stay. Mitch was super responsive to our questions and the layout worked well with the family we had. Nice quiet neighborhood that was only a mile from some lovely little eateries. And we had a view of the space needle from the third floor! The only thing that we missed was a grill to take full advantage of the lovely backyard space.

Fantastic 3rd floor main room to fit 10 people easily, w a nice view of Gasworks park to the space needle. Couple issues we had though was a lack of toilet paper- there were no extras; no garbage bags to collect garbage from everywhere; and the light in the top floor bathroom does not work. Besides those things, great experience.
Manager response:
Our apologies that your experience in the home was not the pleasant and relaxing vacation we wish to facilitate for our guests. We are sorry for any miscommunications regarding the number of consumable products provided in the unit prior to your arrival. We do provide starter packs of paper products and detergents, and anything required beyond this is the responsibility of the guests. We appreciate you bringing the top floor bathroom light issue to our attention. We will work with our local team to ensure that item is corrected for future guests. We truly hope we can host you for a more comfortable stay in the future.

Stunning architectural detail, room to spread out, great neighborhood, spacious master suite, Seattle skyline views from top floor, well stocked kitchen.
Terri N. Oct 2019
Five co-ed professionals staying for business trip. The home provided plenty of space for privacy as well as connecting. Safe neighborhood; beautiful views. Very clean.
Nathan S. Sep 2019
Myself and my family stayed at the stunning home for my in-laws 50th anniversary. The home and neighborhood are very charming and unique. Downtown Seattle is 10 minutes away with traffic, 4 minutes without. The views from the third floor are amazing, and not reflected in the photos. I would happily stay here with my family again.
Marian P. Apr 2019
Beautiful home, perfect for our group of 10. Comfortable rooms, well appointed kitchen, good location. Bonus room on the third floor was perfect for getting the group together at the end of the day to share adventures.
Diana B. Feb 2019
Myself and 6 other family members stayed at this home for almost a week and it was perfect for us. This home is very spacious, clean, and full of charm. Great location with an amazing view of the water and space needle. The neighborhood was cute too!
Alaina F. Dec 2018
This house is huge! It was the perfect place for our team to stay while attending a conference at the Convention Center - only about a 10-minute drive from downtown. It has all the comforts and amenities you could possibly want. I would stay here again.
Megan D. Oct 2018
The view of the lake and the mountains in the distance from the top floor game room was to die for! The house had beautiful craftsmanship everywhere. The master bedroom had a beautiful porch and also a heated bathroom floor. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!
Lisa T. Jul 2018
We loved this classy 5-bedroom home just minutes from the heart of downtown! We easily took an Uber to the waterfront and to the Space Needle. This beautiful home was the perfect place for our group of friends to relax, enjoy a meal together, sleep, and plan our next day's fun. Highly recommended!
Catherine L. Jul 2018
The quality of the home construction, the multiple bedrooms/baths with privacy, the large kitchen. Everything.
Emily R. Jul 2018
Lovely old house with lots of character. Very nice of Vacasa to accommodate our need of a pack + play. The cleaning service was really sweet + allowed us to drop our bags early. Thanks for everything!
Priscilla T. Jun 2018
I recently traveled to Seattle with a small group, as a part of an outdoor education trip. The house was very clean, easy to access and beautifully appointed. We appreciated the quick access to various part of the city including Seattle Center, U. Washington, Pikes Place, and local eateries on 10th. Wonderful home and experience!
Patti C. May 2018
Large house with 5 bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths, kitchen very well stocked, great architecture...if you want to party & be loud please don’t come to this location as a very nice, quiet neighborhood... states 3 designated parking spaces but there are really no reserved places but we had no problem parking 3 cars...
John B. May 2018
If you're looking for home that feels like you're stepping back in time but with all the conveniences of today, this is it. Beautiful stained glassed windows, amazing pocket doors and plenty of room to accommodate a large group. We would definitely stay here again.
Melissa G. Feb 2018
Great house for entertaining lots of people. Large kitchen with all the tools you need to make great meals. Beautiful house and lovely neighborhood.
