Traveling is my passion. I believe feeling *at home* when you’re on the road is precious and invaluable. I not only provide a warm and spacious 3 bedroom house for your next visit to Seattle, I offer my commitment to do all I can to make your visit fabulous!

The space

This tudor-inspired home is perfect for your next vacation to Seattle. Close to the UW, Greenlake, and ideal for those who use public transportation. Enjoy a newly remodeled kitchen, and a cute patio dining area for summer days, and a warm fireplace in the living room for winter nights.

This house is spacious and perfect for family vacations! We can host 6 people comfortably, and we welcome the family pet.

Creating a feeling of "home" for travelers means the space is spotless, well-organized, and there is ample space to unpack and feel at home right away.

The house is a comfortable, with a large living room and dining room perfect for relaxing at home after a long day of sight-seeing. There are three bedrooms upstairs and a large bathroom.

Master bedroom: queen bed
Guest Room #1: queen bed
Guest Room #2: two twin beds

A small guest bathroom is on the main floor. The newly remodeled kitchen is perfect for cooking and comes stocked with the basics. Let us make your stay in Seattle wonderful!

The Ravenna/Roosevelt neighborhood scores a 93 in the walkabiity ratings because everything you need is right outside your door, including an express bus downtown. Right now, there is a lot of changes in the neighborhood, as we expect to gain a light rail station opening in 2021. There is entire blocks being transformed from single family homes into low rise condo buildings. There isn't any construction that directly impacts the house, but you can see the cranes building the train station only blocks away, and the empty lots down the street waiting for new construction.

While over 90% of guests have loved the house, there have been a couple concerns raised in reviews by guests. First, the house is not on a quiet residential street. It's located on a arterial and while there is only one lane in each direction, there are many more cars/busses than the adjoining residential streets, and a few guests find the street noise in the front rooms distracting. Second, during heat waves in summer the upstairs can get warm (as does most of Seattle, as most houses are not equipped with air conditioning). I have fans and one wall AC unit upstairs, and after 9pm the drop in outside temperatures quickly cool down the house. Most guests are happy with the house, finding it comfortable and quiet enough to enjoy their stay, but I want to make sure that the negative points raised in a few of the reviews are addressed before you book.

Guest access

There is a tenant/housekeeper in the basement apartment, and they use the driveway. There is ample parking on the street right in front of the house, and the house and yard are used exclusively by guests.

Interaction with guests

I'm often in San Diego or traveling abroad, but will be in Seattle most of the Spring and summer and I'm available by phone, text or email. I respond within minutes to questions, or concerns.

Other things to note

My housekeeper or myself stay in the separate
apartment downstairs, but the space is sound-proofed and no one has ever noticed or mentioned any inconvenience.

Goo place to stay with kids out of city centre but well connected on buses to town and an easy walk to green Lake. Terry was an excellent host as well.

Terry's house is very comfortable, well equipped and well located. She is a most responsive, helpful, generous host. We were four adults and two children, plenty of space for all. We plan to stay again, if possible.

I am so happy I found this place. It is convenient yet out of the crazy night life. The house is clean, comfortable and has everything you could want for a lovely stay. We spent quiet mornings on the back patio drinking coffee and enjoying the view of trees and flowers. If you're trying to make your mind up, I encourage you to choose Terry's place. I know I'll be back.

Terry's house was perfect for our family. Everything we could possibly need was available to us. The added amenities of snacks and toiletries were appreciated by all! We were there during a bit of a heat wave, yet the house stayed quite comfortable. There were fans in every room which was a big bonus :) Would love to stay there again if the chance arose.

Terry User Profile

I love to travel, and explore life off the grid.

I recently completed my Masters Degree in Theology, and I'm on the road a lot which is why I love to host. I've been bouncing between San Diego, Seattle and Detroit for the last six years.

I love homemaking, and making sure my guests feel comfortable. Hospitality has always been a passion of mine. I also love the outdoors,

I have two dogs, Jack and Milo and they are the loves of my life . I love to cook and have cupboards filled with healthy ingredients to share with my guests. My life motto "Life isn't about what we are doing, It is about how we are being." I bring joy, honesty, and health to everything I do.
