About This Listing
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.

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! Let us make your stay in Seattle wonderful!
There is a tenant/housekeeper in the basement apartment but the house and yard are used exclusively by guests.
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 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.
It's a really nice place for a family to stay. I was with other five family members. We enjoyed our stay a lot. It's really convenient to buy some food and cook at home. The host Terry was very helpful and she responded quickly. The only shortcoming was that there is only one shower even though there are two bathrooms, so people needed to wait a little bit to take shower. Overall, I recommended this place!
Although we just had 3 days/ 2 nights at Terry's house, staying there was great. The place is located within easy (bus) driving distance to Seattle downtown & near to Green Lake - perfect to get to know Seattle's diverse facets. The house itself is quite commodious - with a full equipped kitchen & 3 bed rooms. Terry was very kind, accommodating & flexible during the whole time of our stay; if you have any questions, she answers/ helps you immediately. I would like to stay there again, when I visit Seattle next time.
Terry was very welcoming - fresh eggs from the chickens next door was a really special touch. The house was adorable and perfect for our group. The neighborhood was great and had tons of awesome shops, restaurants, and bars within walking distance. I would definitely recommend this space to anyone looking to stay in Seattle.
We loved staying at Terry's house. The kitchen was wonderfully stocked with basics and beyond, the living room was both cozy and airy, the beds were all very comfortable with nice linens, and the bathrooms were spotless, with modern fixtures. Terry responded to every query within minutes, and went out of her way to make us comfortable, giving us access to her laundry machines (by appointment) and even bringing us flowers! Staying at Terry's was a 100% positive experience.
I stayed with my brother and dad here. The house is big and comfortable, at a very nice spot for university area. Highly recommended.
Terry was great: very responsive and genuinely wanted us to be comfortable and enjoy our stay. She made that easy with a few little extras and a home that felt, well, homey. It was a great place for us to gather family from across the US for the weekend. Good location, too, with easy access to town and to all things Seattle.
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!

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.
For a quintessential Seattle experience this spot is perfect. If you need a gift, some oil, or just a feeling of Zen, stop by
If you want a dive bar with a pool table and a good happy hour this is your place
You can walk!
There is a nice kid section in this bookstore and a great cafe. You can walk the 6 blocks to the place.
Great spot right here in the neighborhood for music.
This is the best spot for coffee and one of the nicest Starbucks in Seattle
So close, and so easy
There is an awesome playground, swim area and a 2.3 paved walk around the lake that everyone in the region enjoys.
Everything you could need is found here. An Apple store, H&M, Crate&Barrel, a huge grocery store, and lots of restaurants
