Description from the manager
This classic 1904 Seattle home, set far back from the street has seen upgrades but still retains its original charm. When you are ready to rest after a day of work or sightseeing you will enjoy a seat on the new porch looking out past the large birch tree and front lawn as well as hanging out on the new back deck. And if the air is crisp, sit yourself in front of the full size gas fireplace in the living room and put your feet up, grab a book or flip through the channels.
The cozy living space offers comfortable seating, a large, flat panel television with expanded cable, internet access, dining set for four and a spacious kitchen stock...Read more

Great Tangletown/Wallingford Stay
Spotless house in one of Seattle's great neighborhoods. Walking distance to what may be Seattle's best ice cream, donuts, coffee, and playgrounds, good sushi, and by car only 10 min from downtown. The one drawback is a single small bathroom with a claw foot tub: great for baths, but with a low ceiling and the height of the tub, a challenge for showers. However, worth putting up with considering everything else is first rate!

Great Tangle Town Stay
Place was very nice. Loved everything. Only things were there were no curtains upstairs in the loft with the futon so that was a bit difficult and the floor wasn't cleaned when we arrived....I ended up vacuuming it myself. But we don't wear shoes inside so that was something that bugged see bits of outside bits and pieces inside.... Otherwise it was cozy, tidy overall, everything we need including all the bedding. Positioned perfect and parking was never an issue.

This is a sweet cottage and Erika at the rental agency is one of the best rental agents we've ever dealt with on a vacation home.
The house is cute and comfortable, with the one possible exception of the very tiny bathroom. I am tall, (5'10") and the bathroom is a converted attic. I could not stand up straight while brushing my teeth, and the shower is almost impossible for anyone over 5 feet tall. It's in a claw foot tub, so is somewhat high off the ground;you have to climb up and step down into the tub. The ceiling is sloped on both ends and the tub is surrounded with an odd system of shower curtains on a wire. I would worry about young children or anyone with any mobility issues using this as it's a bit rough even for the agile! It was very clean however as was the rest of the house.
Other than the odd bathroom, I recommend the house as it has a very comfortable bed, nice living room and the neighborhood is wonderful. The kitchen is adequate, and there is a nice flat screen tv with a dvd player and strong wifi.
It is within walking distance Tanglewood, home of the Mighty O donut shop which won the Food Network competition for best donut. (and they are vegan to boot.)
Add the ease of doing business with Sea to Sky rentals and you have a winning combination. We will rent from them again and recommend that you do also. They are very responsive and eager to help. (Thanks again Erika!)

Hello Lynn! What a wonderful review. Thank you so much for sharing your experience, not only of your stay at Greenlake Cottage but your interaction with Erika as well. I have passed along your very nice compliments to Erika! You're right; like a lot of early 1900's Seattle homes, the bathroom has a lot of charm but is on the small side. Like you pointed out, the rest of the house offers all the modern conveniences you could hope for in a vacation home! The neighborhood is wonderful and offers a lot to explore. We would love to have you stay with us again. Please keep an eye on our Facebook page for exclusive promotions and guest discounts!
Jupiter, FL, United States
We stayed in the Greenlake Cottage for a week in January. The property was exactly what we were looking for. It was perfect for our family of five (ages 5, 3 and 10 months). I only wish it were a little larger for future visits, as we will most likely outgrow this quaint and exceedingly charming home.

Great taste of Seattle neighborhood living
We loved our cool, rainy late fall stay in the cottage, snug and cozy. It's beautifully furnished, and the kitchen is outfitted with great tools. In Seattle, you hope for two kinds of coffee devices - we appreciated the French press. The bed is luxurious; the bathroom is small and the shower a wee bit awkward, but all in all, we loved the cottage.
I walked Greenlake several times with friends, and Zoka, one of the best coffee roasters in the city, is just blocks away. I had work to do downtown, too, and was well served by two robust bus lines. You can leave the car at home here, and enjoy all that Seattle Center and downtown have to offer. As a former Seattleite, I highly recommend the Greenlake cottage for an authentic taste of daily life in my beloved city.

Fairfax, VA, United States
Cottage is nearly perfect: barely enough hot water for one quick shower and anyone approximating 6' couldn't stand in the iron claw foot tub. More than adequate if you are visiting in the neighborhood or have access to a car for groceries, a quick trip downtown-15 min. (otherwise can take an hour by bus).
Response from Sea to Sky Rentals - 10/08/2012
Hello Roberta! Thank you so much for the review. While a "nearly perfect" stay is nice, I'm sorry that your stay wasn't perfectly perfect! Please keep in mind that we are only a phone call away if there is anything we can do to make your stay more enjoyable, which of course includes checking the hot water heater! Part of the charm of the Greenlake Cottage is the bathroom; however, it is a bit on the small side. Please keep in mind that we offer all return guests a 5% discount. We would love to have you stay with us again!

Cottage in Green Lake
The cottage was absolutely great for us. There were 2 downsides:
1) There was a bad cat-litter-type smell emanating from underneath the kitchen sink. It would sometimes emanate out into the kitchen and dining room.
2) Some of the living room blinds didn't work.
Other than that, beautiful!

A sweet cottage in a picturesque neighborhood
The cottage was sweet, very clean, and in a very desirable neighborhood - loved walking around there, viewing all the homes, mostly adorable bungalows, all different architecturally, and most with beautiful, colorful gardens. We could walk to Green Lake - one of my favorite parks in Seattle, and there were lots of wonderful cafes, plus the yummie Mighty O's Donuts - all organic - what a concept!
Response from Sea to Sky Rentals - 07/24/2012
Hello Barbara! Thank you so much for your review. Greenlake is a lovely area and one of the most popular walks in Seattle. In addition to supporting local Seattle business with your stay at Sea to Sky, you also support local business by treating yourself to Mighty-O Donuts! Would you mind if I passed your comments along to Mighty-O's owner? Don't forget we offer a 5% return guest discount. We would love to have you as a guest again!
Carlsbad, CA, United States
We really enjoyed our time in this Tangletown charmer. The location was great, with easy access to pretty much any part of the Seattle area (assuming you had a reason to leave the cute, Cute, CUTE neighborhood). We'd stay again, and again, and again.
Honolulu, HI, United States
Aloha and Mahalo from Hawaii!
We were very happy as soon as we walked in the door at the Greenlake Cottage! It was very cozy and clean! Loved the decor! It was absolutely perfect for my family because of it's close proximity to my mom's condo in Fremont and the University of Washington for my daughter's graduation! Mahalo so much!
Tallahassee, FL, United States
Experience was similar to camping due to the size and makeup on the bathroom.
One person only
Duck to use the sink or shave
Major effort/risk to get in/out tub/shower (no hand holds)
No mirrors other than small hand mirrow

A gem with a few imperfections
The Greenlake Cottage is a real gem of a property. The location and the well equiped house/kitchen make it an easy place to stay. The downside is that the internet wireless network is non-existent. I had to hard wire to the Quest DSL for every use which was a hassle. Ended up using the phone's hot spot when we were multiple using; which is a data eater and slow. The bathroom is a real challenge, especially if you are over 6 feet tall. The place would be perfect if they just would have done a proper bathroom when they remodeled the cottage.
Response from Sea to Sky Rentals - 04/30/2012
I am sorry to hear that you had problems with the wireless network but thank you for letting us know. We will be sure to have it checked out and improved as we offer this as a benefit to staying in the home.
Seattle, Wa, United States
I would have stayed longer if I could have! Loved it.
Our stay at the Greenlake Cottage was wonderful in every way. It's an extremely cozy house with all the necessary amenities. I stayed there w/ two young children who adored it and still ask to go back. Layout is great for entertaining, kids, etc. Loved the extra touch of sending over a box of kids toys and videos, made it more exciting for children. Loved sitting in front of the fireplace in the evenings. Showering in bathtub w/ all the curtains not ideal, but a minor item given all the pluses of the house. Neighbors all very friendly, neighborhood quiet and pleasant, parking easy, usually right in front of house. Staff at Sea To Sky were lovely and helpful in all interactions. Would strongly recommend.

Local Rental while floors were refinished
This was a terrific location - and I would recommend it highly to anyone visiting Seattle. It is in a great neighborhood and the public transport links are excellent.
The house is small and was perfect for two people with one sweet old lab. The furnishing are spare but sufficient and of excellent quality. We were there in the winter and the fireplace was a great 'central heating' unit - and cozy location for sitting for all of us - lab closest of course. And I have to say that the dog cookies available on first entry were a huge hit!
The kitchen is spacious and has very high quality if a little spare equipment/supplies. You'll need to bring in/buy some basics like oil and sugar and flour - unless this has been added. All appliances were great.
The bathroom is a little 'funky' in terms of a claw-foot tub with a shower located under a very sloped ceiling on the second floor. It all worked ok - is was just an 'adventure' gettin in and out.
The rental inquiry and exchange with the agency was excellent - professional and responsive to questions. We had no problems with the property while there. Street parking for our two cars was fine. It really is in a terrific location!
Wenatchee, WA, United States
Highly recommended with one reservation
The location is wonderful and the house is great except the bathroom, which is very small. The shower is awkward to access for anyone and extra difficult for a tall person to use. With the exception of showering, we had a marvelous time at the Greenlake Cottage.
