The house is three stories and has two bedrooms on the top flooor and one in the finished basement. There is an additional finished area in the basement in which temporary beds could be arranged and setup for extra accomodations. Also, there is a hide-a-bed couch located in the main entry room.
Our neighborhood (Maple Leaf) is only 5 miles to downtown Seattle. It is very quiet, safe and family oriented. There is easy freeway access and the busline is 2 minutes away. It is walking distance to coffee shops, neighborhood bistros and parks. Puget Sound beaches are a 10 minute drive away. It is also less than 10 minutes away from many other Seattle neighborhoods such as Greenlake, Ballard, Fremont, University District and Phinney Ridge.
Seattle is a beautiful and cosmpolitan city located in the equally beautiful Pacific Northwest area. In addition to the many sights and adventures within Seattle, there are limitless destinations and sights to see in the Pacific NW; Portland, British Columbia (Vancouver and Victoria), San Juan Islands, etc. It's a great place to be - especially in the summer!
Our family consists of Deb (mum), Mike (dad) and Oscar (son). However, we are traveling with relatives in July 2007 to England for a family wedding (my wife is originally from Scotland and her brother is getting married in London). Our full travel group will be 5 adults and 4 children. The children's ages range from 2-5.
