Near SEA-TAC airport (in a good way, no noise or air traffic; you'd never know it). 20 minutes to the city. We only came back to Burien each night to sleep, eat, and enjoy the view - as our sight seeing destinations were always North. Charming, quiet and tucked away with gorgeous views. King bed super comfy. We're breakfast people and it was a big bonus that breakfast items were already stocked (and replenished!). Annie was very accommodating, even mailing an item we left behind. She definitely went above and beyond.
Our stay at Soundview Cottage was relaxing and delightful. Our host, Annie, was attentive and thought of everything to make our stay in Seattle most comfortable, including fresh flowers, delicious breakfast items, and beautiful bathroom. I hope to return to this retreat soon!! Thank you, Annie!
What all of the other reviews have said is true...this place is fantastic! Gorgeous setting, cozy cottage, and the best hostess ever. This adorable little spot was perfect for our Seattle getaway. It's a short drive to the city, and it's surrounded by nature so you'll get the best of city and secluded. Plus, Annie (who lives in the house in front of this cottage) was wonderfully helpful in making suggestions for things to do. What's more, she stocked the kitchen with plenty of tasty treats for us to enjoy during our stay. I hope to get to stay here again soon!
The cottage had everything you could need for a relaxing way to unwind after a days excursions. Comfy bed, lovely views from the deck and peace and quiet. Something we really have as a must on our vacations.
A plentiful supply of fresh breakfast goodies and beyond was an added bonus.
Great location for exploring around Seattle. One tip - do not drive in to Seattle itself - finding parking is not easy. The air museum near by is a must and if you like hiking you have to drive down to Mount Rainier.
Annie was the perfect host and if we were ever back in the area we would definitely stay again.
Nestled on a curve of a peninsula overlooking the sound, everything from Soundview Cottage including the serene view from the hot tub for two to the tempting treats filling the fridge prepared us for our day trips to Seattle and Tacoma. We were tempted to never leave, we hope to return soon!
