We enjoy meeting guests and providing tips for their stay --but err on the side of providing privacy. We are available 24/7 for questions. The Neighborhood The neighborhood is a quiet and residential situated above the water and town. This means it is a downhill walk to the small downtown and waterfront.

Other Things to Note "The Studio" is located in the town of Edmonds, Washington about 15 miles north of Seattle. ...
