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 three levels.
The entry level has two bedrooms. The first is "USA" and pays homage to Olympics games hosted in the US. It has a *king size bed* with two nightstands, a large closet, and direct access to the front patio, where you will find a dining table, barbecue, chaise lounge, and lots of room to entertain.
The second bedroom is a small room with big potential. It features a twin over full sized bunk bed that helps accommodate groups of all sorts of different configurations (families, couples, adults, kids, etc.)
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 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 dual master bedrooms, each with an en suite bathroom. The largest suite is "European Summer" (honoring European cities that hosted the Summer Olympics) and has a *king size bed* with two nightstands and large closet. From this master suite, you will enjoy French doors open to a small balcony overlooking the valley. On a clear day, enjoy the Cascade Mountain Range in the distance. The second master suite is "European Winter" and it has a queen bed and en suite bathroom.
The home also features a washer/dryer for use by our guests.
Each of our homes has been decorated to pay homage to a meaningful facet of our lives. This home ("Olympics") commemorates the Olympic Games, with tasteful and playful decor celebrating the quadrennial event that draws the world's attention.
This home is equipped with window air conditioners in the living room and upstairs king bedroom

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.Get the full listing »
