Barry and Carrie were the best hosts you could ask for. They are not only welcoming and genuinely kind but they are extraordinarily helpful and knowledgable about what you may or may not need for their space. We used this space for our film production and it was the perfect choice. They have a uniquely gorgeous home that comes with a first class experience. We will certainly be back!
Barry was extremely helpful and pleasant to work with! We were able to scout the house (twice) and the shoot went seamlessly. Their home is beautiful with unique details and a lot of room for production. The outside parking lot is ample space for vehicles, or a motorhome.
First off, we were coming from NYC and Barry and Carrie were so helpful in the pre-production phase and answered so many of our questions. They were professional and prompt with their communication, which I find invaluable when it comes to working with a location. Secondly, the location was PRISTINE! The entire crew and client was in love with the home and its intricate details. They have been champions in restoring this mid-century gem and are proud to share the space. One production note, bring floor protection, it would be a-shame to ruin what they've restored.
The Seattle Mid Century Modern is an incredible location for photoshoots and events. The hosts were responsive, gracious, and accommodating despite a few last minute schedule changes on our part. The house is spacious and the interior design is impeccable. Seattle is lucky to have such a versitle & top-notch location. Highly recommend and will book again.
We rented this house for a commercial shoot and it was perfect! House was well decorated, super clean, had good natural light and the owners were great to work with. I highly recommend renting this house for a shoot.
This was the best rental space experience I've ever had. I searched the internet for hours looking for a unique space to rent for a work party. I had almost given up when I found Carrie and Barry's spectacular home. The pool caught my eye first, but the perfectly, and thoughtfully, restored home was what sealed the deal. The party was in six days so I inquired instantly and within the hour I was on the phone with them, on a Sunday evening! They were so friendly, answered all my questions, and were incredibly accommodating and flexible. They were patient while I ran the idea of a pool party by my fellow party planners, and even let us tour the space with a few hours notice. They hired a "chaperone" as part of the deal (since this is their house!) and she was lovely. She was there to help set up, was ready to help with anything we needed, and made sure everything went smoothly. She even cut up our watermelon for us. Above and beyond, in my opinion. The space is as special as it looks. Mid century everything. Wide open rooms with a perfect flow and the decor you dream about. At first I was worried it was too nice, but they've done a great job making it welcoming and relaxing. The party was perfect and everyone loved being together for an old fashioned pool party. There was something for everyone. Some people played basketball, lawn games, swam, lounged, grilled...they even allowed us to bring a DJ. I have nothing negative to say. It was simply the best. We're already planning to hold next years summer work party there and I know that it'll be just as magical.
I rented this house for a 2-day photo shoot. My crew and I were so pleased with our experience. The hosts were gracious and accommodating, as well as very responsive. The property is amazing ... great interior decor and furnishings. I would love to go back if I can!
Carrie and Barry were wonderful hosts! Communication and coordination was a breeze. The home was absolutely beautiful and perfect for our filming needs. I look forward to booking their unique and perfectly styled home for future projects.
