Interaction with guests
As a host I will be glad to interact, answer questions, and make your stay in my home as comfortable as possible. Also, my assistant host (Nick) is at your disposal. He is more than willing to help with transportation needs or baggage assistance. The bathroom and kitchen are a shared space. Even though we will be in and out of the house during your stay, we will always be available, either personally or via cell phone.
I love the diversity of my neighborhood, the proximity to downtown Seattle, Chinatown, Pioneer Square and the delicious Asian cuisine which I hope you will try. I feel safe during my daily walks, know most of my neighbors and have enjoyed their friendship over many years. Parking is not a problem and I can always find a spot to park right in front of the house. Really!! My diverse neighborhood allows many different ethnic groups and religious affiliations to flourish side by side: St. Mary's Catholic Church, St. Peter's Japanese Episcopal Church, Vietnamese Buddist Temple, African American Baptist Churches and many more, all co-exist in this wonderful urban setting and are only a few blocks away.
I'm a block from bus stops that will take you to downtown Seattle, University of WA, and within a 20 minute walk to Seattle University, very close to Union Station (light rail) and King Street Station (Amtrak), both within 20 - 30 min. from my home. The light rail connects to both downtown Seattle and to Seatac Airport, Amtrak takes you to Portland or Vancouver B.C. Historic Pioneer Square and Chinatown are 15 to 20 minutes away and downtown Seattle a 40 min. walk! Bus are everywhere and will take you where you want to go if walking if not your "thing".
Other things to note
There are 3 different patio locations in my garden area that are lovely and available in warmer weather. On nice days you'll frequently find me gardening or just sitting enjoying the chirping of the birds! The back yard is completely enclosed with fence and bordered with bamboo. Private and secluded right in the middle of Seattle! Urban living at its best!
My overall goal is to make my guests comfortable. Rules are simple: No smoking, no shoes, in house. Smoking is permitted in the garden. Kitchen should be left as you find it, please. No pets allowed. I do have a cat and dog...neither pet is allowed in the guest room. My cat (Mimi) and dog (Evy) are both well-mannered pets!

I'm an active, older, retired RN, who has a love of gardening, travel, and spending time with friends and family. I love reading, walking, and enjoy the authentic Asian cuisines in the neighborhood. I'm happy to live in a diverse neighborhood and have great neighbors. And weather permitting, you will find me happily working in the garden. I like all kinds of music, and have an eclectic taste in most things.
I take delight in connecting with people I can feel at ease around. That said, I also cherish my privacy and independence and respect the need that others may have for the same.
I love living in my older 1900's style home, but lately I find it to be rather too big and have decided to let out one of the bedrooms.
