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.

  • I couldn't have asked for any better first time American experience. Judith was ever so generous at all levels. She introduced me to best people, best places and best events of Seattle. I gained friend for life besides high quality days in her magnificent home.

  • A really gorgeous house, a superb view and a perfect host!
    Could you ask something more?
    This is perfect if you stay in Seattle, a corner of peace, silence, culture and light.
    Judith is a special person, she will share with you not only the house, but also her culture, humor and tips.
    We really had a very pleasant time there, and Judith’s home has been determinant.

  • We had a great experience at Judith's place. Both my wife & I agreed that staying with Judith contributed significantly to our enjoyment of our time in Seattle. She was a warm, welcoming and humorous host. Great bedroom & bathroom. And the postcard-perfect views from her home were beyond expectations! Hope we have the opportunity to visit again...

  • My favorite thing about the house was the view, and what a view it has! absolutely gorgeous! Judith's house is very sweet and cute as well as full of light. The entire house is completely soaked with the most beautiful sunset in the evening, if you are lucky with the weather. Judith is a very engaging person and we had a lot of fun talking about a lot of things over wine and meals together. The area is very quiet and remote so you need a car to get around, but I would definitely stay here again instead of the busy downtown area.

  • Judtih was a fantastic host, and her home was even more amazing than the pictures online lead you to believe.

    She was very accommodating and extremely helpful in guiding us to our journey around the city. She knows all the cool spots, sights to see and events going on.

    When we go back to Seattle, we are going to see if Judith is available first, and plan our trip around her vacancies! That's how much we would want to stay with her again.

    If you get a chance to stay here and interact with Judith, don't miss it.

    September 2013
  • Judith is delightful, welcoming, her home is so beautiful and the view is to die for! The location is perfect for a lovely brunch and mid-day walk at Alki beach and an easy drive to downtown Seattle. We highly recommend Judith's lovely home...we look forward to visiting again soon!

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!
