Family of 4. Single income. 2 kids, 6 and 3 yrs of age respectively. I am looking for a spacious place (preferably 1700 sqft plus) and a safe neighbourhood. Max budget for the rent is ~ $3k / month. Which areas would you suggest?
Also, which ones do you prefer, houses or apartments?
Work for Amazon in Seattle (SLU), I can manage with upto an hour of commute, if I can get a good place for the family.

    Eastside for kids. Especially Kirkland.

      Yes, can rent a house for that money. E.g. on Rose Hill.

      Had to look that up, Redmond makes sense.

      Sounds like a bad idea. Why pay a huge premium for kirkland/redmond/Bellevue if you don't even work there. Prices are very expensive due to everyone from Google and Microsoft wanting to live close to work. Other than proximity to Msft/Google campus I don't see any advantages to choosing those areas. There's a lot of nice neighborhood in Seattle. You'll save on commute + you will be living in a real city with fun stuff to do.
