Interaction with Guests
Interaction with guests is easy and breezy. If they want to sit and chat & have a beer, that works, but if they want to come and go as they please, I am cool with that, too.
We have access to a large grocery store, any kind of cuisine you could desire, delicious coffee and easy public transit all within blocks of the apartment.
I am a great concierge, as well, so I can help you find anything in the neighborhood, & in many other neighborhoods around Seattle.
There are 4 bus lines that run 1 block from the house, the 43, the 49, the 60 & the 9. Within 3 blocks, runs the number 47 and within 6 blocks run the 10, 11 and other busses serving Downtown Seattle.
It is also very easy to hail a taxi on Broadway (one block east of the apartment).
I expect that the guests not have any unannounced overnight guests. Visitors are welcome up until a reasonable hour, & I expect my guests to be quiet and respectful, especially on weeknights.
No pets are allowed, due to the pre-existing, live-in cat.
No smoking or drug use will be tolerated.
Lillian was very nice and welcoming. She let me know quickly the details about the house and tips about getting around the neighborhood. Everything was accurate to the description in the listing. She was very accommodating and let me do my own thing. This is a nice, clean private room in a very good location in Seattle's capitol hill neighborhood.
Lily welcomed me on a day of arrival and gave a tour of the house. She is attentive and helpful host. Room was exactly as described in listing, the location is great - close to park, restaurants and PRONTO station (bike-share).
Lily was a great host who makes you feel like home from the first minute of your arrival.
The listing is as described, room is basic and location could not be any better. The room gets some street noise and with the lack of an AC, it may get a bit uncomfortable if it is too hot out there. Fortunately that does not really happen that often in Seattle.
Lillian made me feel very welcome and was most accommodating. The neighborhood is excellent with easy access to a bus that goes downtown and restaurants just steps away. There's a reading light and a fan in the room, and the bed is very comfortable. There's a closet for hanging clothes.
The place is exactly as pictured, and is clean and neat. Lillian provided directions from the airport to her place by public transportation, and was waiting to greet me when I arrived. Her place is only one block from Broadway, which is the fun and lively heart of Capitol Hill. There's a great used bookstore down the street. It was only a 20 minute walk (downhill) into downtown and on the way you can meander past the Starbuck's Tasting Room and Serious Pie. I'd be happy to stay here again.
Lily is really nice and accommodating to your schedule. Great location within walking distance of downtown. However it could use a deep clean across the board.
Lillian was a great host. She made sure my late-night arrival was easy. She was very welcoming and answered all of my touristy questions.
The apartment is in a great neighborhood... short walking distance to so much good food and coffee. Some of my favorites within walking distance - Glo's (amazing eggs benedict), Analog Coffee, Vivace Coffee, Cafe Solstice (cheap/yummy breakfast sandwiches) and Melrose Market (delicious wine + cheese counter).
I even walked to the Space Needle one day! (It's about 1.5 miles - a good distance but worth it.)
You are truly in the heart of Capitol Hill when you stay with Lillian.
I can't wait to visit Seattle again!
About the Host, Lillian
I am an independent contractor and have a spare bedroom. I would like to continue to share this space with same ilk of respectful and fantastic people that I have had the pleasure to meet via Airbnb.
I love my cat & hanging out. I gather that my guests' activities would be independent of my own, but sharing a beer & a chat would be cool, too. Either way.
I expect my guests to be respectful of my space & to respect that, after certain hours, there are to be no unexpected guests and limited noise.
The apartment is pretty small, & I am up for sharing my living room, kitchen & bathroom, but I prefer quiet and respectful guests.
No drug use/smoking in the house is allowed.
If you would like to have someone share the room with you, that can be arranged, but with an added fee. We can negotiate prices once we get to talking about arranging your stay.
