About this listing
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 budget and I wont steer you wrong!
About the Host, Karen
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.
