House of Suffrage: Luxury 5 bedroom, sleeps 16!
2700 Sqft Vacation Home hosted by Andy
16 Guests . 5 Bedrooms . 3 Bathrooms

Overview

The space

This newly furnished home has modern amenities, a quiet location with private backyard, and proximity to all that Seattle has to offer. We have decorated the "House of Suffrage" as a bipartisan celebration of electoral politics.

The first floor is your living area. This open concept space has a chef's kitchen with modern counter tops, gas stovetop and stainless steel appliances. There is tons of room to work and to enjoy the brand new kitchenware. This space flows directly to the dining area with seating for 10 (expands to accommodate more), plus stools at the long breakfast counter. Continuing from the dining area is the light-soaked living room, furnished with a queen sleeper sofa (with highest end sofa bed mattress on the market), love seat, accent chair, DVD, and cable TV with robust package (includes HBO, Cinemax, Starz, etc.). Enjoy our collection of games (Scrabble, cards, etc.) in front of the gas fireplace. Or walk out the back of the home onto the large deck with barbecue and dining table, from which you can also access the spacious, private fenced-in backyard.

This main floor also features a powder room, coat closet, and pantry. The attached, oversized 1-car garage also enters onto this floor.

Some have remarked that the home has a museum quality. The main floor is highlighted by "37 Covers" - a chronological display of the New York Times covers following the Bush vs. Gore election of 2000.
Up one flight from the living area is a floor with four bedrooms. At the top of the stairs is a bedroom with queen size bed and small closet. This room is dedicated to friends and family who have run for office. It is decorated with campaign paraphernalia of candidates we have personally known.

Two nearby bedrooms share a Jack-and-Jill bathroom with two sinks. The first of the two bedrooms is called "All Politics Is Local" and is a celebration of local Seattle races. It has a *king size* bed with dual nightstands. The adjoining bedroom is called the "Hall of Shame," because it displays campaign wares of scandal-plagued candidates. This room offers great flexibility for groups of all configurations. It has a "twin over full" bunk bed plus another twin bed. The 4th upstairs bedroom is the master suite, and it pays honor to female candidates. The master suite has a *king size bed* with two nightstands, a large walk in closet, and five-piece spa bath with soaking tub, his and her sinks, and a toilet separated by a door for privacy. This suite has a balcony overlooking Madison Valley, with a table and chairs to sip coffee while enjoying the view. Also on this floor is a full size washer dryer.

Below the main living area is an entire suite including bedroom with king sized bed, en suite bathroom, and a large second living room. This living room - adorned with campaign themed movie posters, also has cable TV, DVD and a queen size sleeper sofa with high-end mattress. Rounding out the lowest level is a small modern kitchen, a second dining table and second laundry. The downstairs living room lets out directly to the backyard.

This home is equipped with window air conditioners in the two bedrooms that share a bathroom ("All Politics is Local" and the "Hall of Shame")

Interaction with guests

Your hosts, Andy and Lynne, live in the neighborhood. We are here to welcome you and help you with any of your needs during your stay. We are happy to offer you advice for sightseeing and restaurant recommendations.

Guests will receive, in advance, our comprehensive homemade visitors' guide to Seattle, packed with our personal recommendations for dining, activities, and much more.

Do you plan to cook during your stay? By special advanced arrangement (depending on availability), we will fulfill your grocery list and have your home stocked for your arrival.

The neighborhood
This 5 bedroom home is central to everything Madison Valley, Capitol Hill and Central Seattle have to offer: great restaurants, parks, hiking, supermarkets, day spas, and more.
Your hosts made this neighborhood 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"), Madrona and Capitol Hill have 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.

Getting around
We live a few short blocks from bus lines that will take you to Seattle's numerous neighborhoods (Madison Park, Capitol Hill, Downtown, Belltown, Seattle Center, South Lake Union). Queen Anne, Ballard, and Fremont are more easily accessed by car. Our home offers garage parking for one car. Street parking for additional cars is plentiful and free.

While we enjoy a fancy hotel now and then, nothing beats the comforts of a real HOME away from home. Having rented countless vacation homes during our time, we have copious notes of what we do and don't like. This passion for travel has led us to build Seattle Vacation Home, a collection of 35 high-end homes in Seattle that are an example of all the best traits we have found in our vacation rentals. Whether you are coming to Seattle for vacation, business, relocation, medical treatment, a cruise, a wedding or any other reasons, we promise you a fantastic stay with Seattle Vacation Home.
