Interaction with Guests
I'm often in Michigan, but will be in Seattle most of the Spring and I'm available by phone, text or email. I respond within minutes to questions, or concerns.
I love that I can walk three blocks to the Ravenna Ravine, and hike through this gorgeous urban forest and on the other side of the ravine is U-village a great spot to shop. Head west and after eight blocks you're at Greenlake. Within a few blocks you're at Whole Foods, East/West books, Rain City Burgers, Bartells Drug Store, Starbucks.
Public transportation is ideal from this spot. For those travelers who use Car2go in their home town, it is available in Seattle now too.
Other Things to Note
My housekeeper stays in the apartment downstairs in the basement, but the space is sound-proofed and no one has ever noticed or mentioned any inconvenience.
We are pretty chill, there isn't many rules. We do not want the house used as a wedding/event prep/cooking location unless arranged beforehand. We don't allow parties: dinner parties, wedding events, family reunions in the house with people not staying at the house without prior approval.
We appreciate it if guests check-in after 5pm and check out by 11am unless prior arrangements are made.
If additional guests are sleeping at the house we appreciate notification.
From Dec 18 - 31, 2015 the minimum stay is 6 nights.
About the Host, Terry
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. Life is about who we are being." I bring love, honesty, and health to everything I do.
