Interaction with Guests

In the early 1900's Seattle had a thriving streetcar system that serviced the entire city. Tangletown was the major transfer point for the streetcar system with all roads leading to the area. Today those disjointed roads meet in a vibrant community that has a lake, great parks, excellent food, locally brewed beer, fantastic coffee, organic donuts and much more.
Just around the corner from our house is the #16 bus stop. From there you can go directly to downtown Seattle, Seattle Center or Northgate Mall. You don't need a car to get anywhere in the city if you are willing to take the bus.
Other Things to Note
If you drive to Seattle there is plenty of unrestricted parking on the street. We'll help you navigate the city if you have any questions.

Ralph met us at our arrival and was very helpful. The listing is accurate and the location is wonderful! The apartment was roomier than I imagined and had all the comforts of home! Traveling with small children, we really enjoyed the nearby lake, walking path, park, and zoo. Public transportation is close and accessible. A quick bus ride to downtown Seattle and you have plenty to do and see. I would definitely stay again!
Ralph was a great host. He made sure I had everything I needed and was communicative. The neighborhood was great. There were some shops and restaurants close by and walking distance from Green Lake which I took advantage of on my sunny weekend stay. As my first visit to Seattle, I am happy I chose to stay here as the place had ample space for myself, comfortable bed, super clean, and had everything I needed. It felt like my own little apartment. I would definitely stay here again.
Very agreeable place and host. Not only clean and neat but also Ralph's place has unique character in the good sense of the word. Distinctively decorated with all kinds of art and art books.
Basement apartment is spacious and has a washer and dryer which is great. Location is excellent and good restaurants and a mini mart within a block or two Apartment is a basement but has windows on three side which is nice
Very friendly and easygoing host. Apartment very well-situated (e.g.: Green Lake, a nice pub, a café, and a great sushi place as well as a Mini-Market are all a stone's throw away) and well-equipped. Enough really interesting art books to keep you in the apartment should the weather be less than enticing. Looking forward to our next stay!
Hello my name is Ralph. I specialize in community-based tropical agriculture. My job takes my all over the world. One of the benefits is that I get to meet all kinds of interesting people, something I enjoy. So I can help you find the best, reasonably price ethnic food in Seattle. In addition, I'm a sculpture. So you will see some of my pieces around the apartment along with some other art I've collected. I can definitely help you if you are interested in the Seattle Art scene.
I hope we get to meet during one of your stays.
