Come enjoy quintessential Seattle living in my carefully renovated craftsman style home. It comfortably fits two and is centrally located minutes from I-5, UW and downtown. Enjoy a spacious kitchen, lovely patio and a hubbub of daytime activities two blocks away at Greenlake Park.
The guest room is on the main floor and has a new queen sized bed, a walk in closet and it's own private bath. If you check out the photos, you'll notice the tub is the original 1903 claw foot tub, which I mention because it requires a bit of agility to get in and out of. The room is ideal for 1-2 people, but there's no need to stay confined in the bedroom, I have my own private space upstairs, so please make the main floor your own while you're here. Street parking is free and rarely a problem. For those concerned with stairs, there are about 6 steps from the curb to my yard, and another 6 steps up to my front porch, this is fairly typical of the neighborhood.
There are great places to eat close by, but one of the perks of Airbnb is having access to the kitchen, and mine won't disappoint. Please feel free to prep and eat at home while you're here. If it's sunny, eat out on the patio, or relax in the sun out back. The house is quite spacious and comfortable, you will feel right at home
Interaction with Guests
I own and work at the neighborhood coffee shop, which means I'm an early bird, and you'll have the house to yourself most mornings. This also means that I don't own a home coffee maker!! If you'd like your morning coffee in your jammies...you may be disappointed about that, but going out for coffee is a Seattle ritual, you may come to enjoy it and there are several options within an easy walk. I'm a great resource for great food and drink options around town, tell me your budgetM and I wont steer you wrong!
Karen is soooo nice and helpful that my parents had a wonderful time with her and green lake neighborhood.
It was a very pleasant first experience with airbnb and closer than any hotel to the work I needed to do in town. Thank you, Karen!
Karen was friendly and welcoming from the start. Communication was excellent before our trip. After we arrived, she gave us helpful information about the public transportation system, the neighborhood, and the city, including a great tip about the pub down the street (totally didn't expect a pub to have such good food). We were out and about a lot, but the guest room was clean, private, comfortable, and attractive, as was the entire first floor (including the kitchen), which we were welcomed/encouraged to use during our stay.
Not sure what I can add to all of the positive reviews of Karen's Green Lake home. I agree with all of the accolades. It is so pleasant, cozy and charming. I felt right at home. The bed is super comfortable. The bathroom is private. The clawfoot tub is a charm and the shower works great. There's am ample closet with lots of drawers and baskets so you can easily keep the room uncluttered. A bonus for me -- there is a piano and a guitar. You simply can't go wrong here.
This is a wonderful location is a small district near Green Lake. The home is a lovely Craftsman-style with a comfortable private room and bath and a shared living room area. The host was clear about instructions and getting in and out of the house is easy w/ her key pad system. A perfect first AirBnB experience!
This was our first Airbnb experience, and we couldn't be happier. The room/bathroom are exactly as described in the listing, very cozy with a comfortable bed and linens. The house has lots of great artwork and is located within easy walking distance of Green Lake and restaurants, or easy freeway access to anywhere else. The best part, though, was our hostess Karen. She is very easy to talk to and be around, available without being intrusive. She was quickly responsive to text requests for directions or recommendations. We would go back to Seattle again just to stay with her!
We appreciate the hospitality and warm welcome we received from Karen. Every thing was just as it was described in Her listing. She opened her home to us. We would love to stay there again when we go to visit our Granddaughter. Thank you again Karen for your ability to make us feel welcome

After 20 years of hosting friends, family and friends of family, I'm finally listing my house on Airbnb. Personally, I think it's a fantastic way to be a little smarter about where your travel dollars are going. It also allows you to get to know your destination from a local's point of view.
When I'm not traveling, I spend most of my time making coffee. Lots and lots of coffee! I own and work at a sweet little neighborhood coffee shop, it is my pride and joy! I adore my community and spend most of my time either connecting with friends over walks around Greenlake (just two blocks from my front door), sprucing up my yard, cooking a meal from scratch, or enjoying the outdoors.
