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 serve the traveler.
Wood burning fireplace and large entertaining area make this living room warm and inviting
This tudor-inspired home is perfect for your next family gathering. Close to the UW, Greenlake, and ideal for those who use public transportation. Enjoy a newly remodeled kitchen, and a cute patio dining area on warm days and a warm fireplace in winter.

This house is spacious and perfect for family gatherings! We can host 6 people comfortably, and 8 if you can all share 1 1/2 bathrooms.
Located near the University of Washington and Greenlake, a nice walk to U-Village and only few blocks to Whole Foods, this Ravenna Home is ideally located for your next visit to Seattle. It's only 6 blocks from I-5 which makes you only minutes from downtown.
Creating a feeling of "home" for travelers means the space is spotless, there is breakfast foods for your first couple mornings, and the house is well organized. 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 entertaining. There are three bedrooms upstairs and a large bathroom.
Master bedroom: queen bed
Guest Room #1: queen bed
Guest Room #2: two twin beds
Living room: Air mattress, and comfy couch
A small guest bath is on the main floor. The newly remodeled kitchen is perfect for cooking and comes stocked with the basics. There is a lovely urban oasis in the back for outdoor eating and entertaining in the summer.
There are four real beds total:
2 queen beds and
2 twin beds.
We also have a comfy down-filled couch, and of course, we have an air mattress. (its how airbnb got its name, did you know that?)
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.
This neighborhood is quintessential Seattle, with lovely grounds and garden beds, large trees and wonderful restaurants. The Scarlett Tree club down the street hosts some of the best music in town.
Ideal for families and for the family pooch! There is one off street parking spot. Let us make your stay in Seattle wonderful!
The main house and the driveway to park. Their is a tenant/housekeeper in the basement apartment.
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 which is a beautiful spot with my trifecta: Apple, Aveda, and Anthropologie!
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 well sound proofed and no one has ever noticed.
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 appreciate parties 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.
Terry was an excellent host and the house was beautiful! It's in a nice, walkable neighborhood near the University of Washington with great bus access to downtown. The best AirBnb I've ever stayed in!
This is a great house, in a great location. Next time we visit Seattle, we will stay here again! Thanks Terry for being a great host!
We felt like we were visiting an old friend who made sure we were welcome and comfortable. The house is really charming. There were five people in our party and we all enjoyed the house immensely. When we arrived there was a lovely bottle of wine and a special surprise in the centerpiece that made us feel welcome. The house appointments and decor are very nice. Cable, wi-fi AND a fireplace made us feel right at home. It was raining most of our visit, but we still enjoyed a sun break in the backyard. The dining room has a great table and we had the chance to sit and visit with some fine wine. We also loved the track at the beautiful high school across the street. Downtown was about 15 to 20 minutes and easy freeway access. made for great day trips. A few evenings we walked to some great restaurants in the area and loved Pies and Pints! There is a great fresh farmer's market and Whole Foods a few blocks away. Seattle is so much fin we will book again in the future and recommend it for anyone looking for a new way to experience the city.
My parents and in laws stayed here during the birth of our first baby. They raved about the place. They noted all of the extras on hand. We'd gladly recommend this spot to family and friends during future visits.
My family and I stayed at Terry's beautiful home in March. We had an absolutely wonderful time. The house is gorgeous and very clean. It slept two couples, one single and two kids very comfortably. Terry was great. Though we didn't have the opportunity to met her in person, she was very responsive and helpful. It was a great experience and I hope to stay there again.
This was one of my favorite AirBNB experiences! The home was beautiful and very welcoming. It felt just like my own home. There was every household item that you can think of and it was well taken care of. We got in late but it was great to come "home" to a well lit house that smelled amazing. Terry had all the information (WiFi password, map of the kitchen, etc.) in easy to read places and was very well organized. The house itself was in a good location, close to the freeway and bars/restaurants. The house was better than we could have expected and I would highly recommend it!
Our non-profit group, An Orphan Smiles, needed a comfortable meeting spot to hold our annual officers meeting (four of us). We were able to stay at "Home away from Home" in Seattle and it was perfect for our needs. We really appreciated and enjoyed the comfort of the home, as we pow-wow'd for hours each day. The kitchen was perfect for our needs, and Terry even provided muffins for us (so kind!). The beds were so comfortable, and the location of the home was excellent. We hope to be back again. Thank you very much, 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.
