The SpaceThis home is great because it is in a quiet neighborhood and it is very easy to get to it. It is 15 mins drive to Seattle, 15 min drive to Everett, 5 min drive to the Woodenville area, which is home to hundreds of wineries, breweries and distilleries. Kirkland is 10 and Bellevue is 20 minutes away. So you can really explore from here! Guest AccessThe guests have access to the whole house and common areas in the condo. You will have a key to the club house which houses the pool, hot tub and gym.
In the home, feel free to use kitchen, TVs, office area. This is my home and I live here, so some of my personal belongings are here, so please be respectful of those Interaction with GuestsIf I am on travel, then I will not have interaction with my guests. I have a friend that will help with handing over keys, inspection, cleaning and questions you may have. If I am in town, this is my home, so I will be there quite a bit, or very nearby, and can help you with tips on where to go, what to do, etc. The NeighborhoodThe immediate neighborhood is pretty quiet. There is supermarket nearby, Thriftway, Pagliaccis Pizza, Starbucks, a couple drive-thru coffee shops, McDonalds, Lake Forest Park bar and grill, a couple of shops, bars and restaurants if you go south on 15th Avenue, but to me the highlight in the neighborhood is Cinebarre: a movie theater with good meals and alcoholic drinks. Note: this is a 21+ establishment.
Not too far from there is the city of Edmonds with lots of small shops, bars and restaurants by the water. And of course there is Seattle an easy ride away! Getting AroundAlthough there is public transportation to get here, I strongly recommend a car.
To get there via bus from the airport you take light rail to the Westlake station, then transfer to the 41 bus to Northgate mall, then transfer to the 347 bus to the corner of Forest Park Dr NE and 15th avenue. Then walk two blocks along Forest Park DR NE to the condo. The complex will be on the left and it is called "The Balaton"
To get there via car from the airport take 518 east and go to I5 north. You will travel on I5 until The Lake Forest Park exit; stay on the right most lane on the off ramp. You will make a right at the very first light off the highway, that is 15 avenue North. Go one whole block south and then make a left on Forest Park DR NE and go in it for two blocks and the complex will be on the left.
