Suite+Office in Gorgeous View Home

House - Private room · 58th Ave, Seattle, WA 98116, United States

The Space

Note: Please write me first before you make a reservation request! I really appreciate it because it gives the best chance for all of us to find out what we need to know.

Your own private suite: bedroom, bathroom, separate office area with wi-fi, bookshelves, desk. On main floor of gorgeous 3400 s.f. home overlooking Puget Sound. Unobstructed forever views of the Olympic Mountains, Bainbridge and Vashon Islands and the Kitsap Peninsula.

The well-stocked kitchen is shared, and you are welcome to enjoy the spacious common areas, the large west-facing deck – and the aforementioned unobstructed views.

This is a beautiful, quiet setting up a lane in the big trees, yet minutes' walk to the vibrant beachfront neighborhood of Alki Beach (Seattle's version of Venice Beach). We neighbors talk about how we feel like we're on vacation here, but we're right in the city!

It's 20 minutes from the airport and 20 minutes to downtown Seattle or SoDo or Beacon Hill and First Hill (if you're associated with the medical centers or VA). It's 25 minutes to the University of Washington (and I can tell you the best routes, I work there).

There is a water taxi straight to downtown Seattle, served by a shuttle.
Not to discourage you from staying here, but "truth in advertising," if you're not driving you have to like walking hills! Public transportation is three or five blocks away. You may be happier with a car if you'll be here awhile.

If your party is more than 2 people, go ahead and ask me about the availability of the whole main house, which would sleep 5. That still assumes some of you would be sleeping together, I do not have five separate beds or bedrooms. If you have up to 9 people, you could rent the whole house as well as the separate Apartment-in-the-Trees, which is also listed here. I wish I were retired and/or traveling all the time so you could have my house to yourselves. Usually I live here too. But, as I said, go ahead and ask!

  • Staying at Judith's was the highlight of our winter travels.

    The atmosphere breathes rest and comfort, and the many chambers seem full of welcomes.

  • Judith is an absolute doll! She has a wonderfully beautiful home overlooking the Sound from above the Alki Beach area. She is an easy drive to the shops and restaurants on California and we found staying here absolutely magical.

    The room and attached bath are on the main floor, everything was very clean and comfortable. Judith also has a great selection of tea to accompany the coffee.

    I would highly recommend her home for a great place to get away and relax!

  • I was about to arrive to Seattle.
    I wanted a nice place with Wifi and an ocean's view.
    And I shared much more !
    Judith was nice, very helpful before my arrival. I had some last moment issues but she was very accommodating. She invited me to go to a very interesting event with her, she helped me for grocery shopping,... And we had very pleasant moments together. We had long talks and funny times. I really enjoyed staying with her. Judith was part of my great meetings of my trip.
    Plus, she has many leaflets or other helpful documents to make your way to Seattle.

    Response from Judith:

    Merci tres bien. I was beginning to be worried about you, so glad to hear from you. How is the rest of your trip going and especially with G?

  • WOW! What a wonderful and beautiful home! The view, the location, the view, the host, the view, the deck... did I mention the view?! :-) We had such a great time at Judith's home for 3 days; so relaxing. Alki beach area in west Seattle was great. The area felt like you were in a lil' island community. You are out of the city, but only a quick water taxi ride or car ride away. Next time we are in the area we will definitely stay with Judith!!

  • Judith says she can be cantankerous. I'm not so sure. We found oursleves drawn closely to judith, loved the room, the house, the views and the area. It really was quite a problem realising that we had to go back to England after our final couple of days with Judith. Our final dinner in USA was on Judith's balcony overlooking Puget Sound as the sun came down.
    Thanks Judith

  • Judith's home is a treasure. Looking out from her deck is one of the most beautiful views I have ever enjoyed. She is a charming hostess who made us feel like close friends, while allowing us all the privacy we wanted.

  • A stay in the house of Judith Cederblom is like a stay with your favorite cousin. She is warm, friendly, intelligent and funny. Her house is immaculate and beautifully located overlooking Puget Sound. We took breakfast on the deck, as well as wine and cheese, watching various boats passing by.. Our room had a comfortable bed and chair and a spacious private bath. We spent several evenings together, sharing stories and conversations in her living room, overlooking her large stone fireplace. When you visit with Judith, you are visiting with your new best friend.

    Response from Judith:

    Melt my heart! Watch out or your new cousin will show up in Salisbury or DC.
    Though if Romney is elected the reason I'd be headed to DC is "to the barricades!"

  • This was a great place to stay, beautiful view, and a very welcoming hostess. We were in the area for a family wedding, Judith was very gracious, allowing my son and stay in the afternoon between the wedding and the reception. My Mom spent the night, and enjoyed the whole experience. I would not hesitate to suggest this location to friends and family, and would love to stay there myself sometime.

    Response from Judith:

    Call when you're coming to town!
    Say hi to your mom too.

  • Judith was a very friendly, generous, and accommodating host. She has a beautiful place with an absolutely fantastic view :) Thanks to her for a great stay!

Airbnb is a way to have a houseful, which is what I like. Ever since I was a kid doing sleepovers and overnighters to my first job out of college as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Turkey all through my long and longer life, I've loved every place I've ever visited. So maybe that's why I want to return all the great hospitality I've received. These days I'm a realtime captioner for hard of hearing. Which means I go to classes, meetings, conferences with students (or staff or faculty) primarily at the University of Washington and write live everything being said so the student can read it on my computer screen as it's happening. You've seen closed captioning on TV? It's like that, only I'm there live on site. Love my job. It's challenging (that is to say, hard) and can be stressful, but I am glad to be a vehicle for access to education and the workplace that people wouldn't have without that service. The service is provided under auspices of the Americans with Disabilities Act. There are so many things to do in Seattle, and I am happy to give you information and ideas for your stay -- or just get out of your way and let you have at it!
