Interaction with Guests
Our apartment is half of our house, so we are close by. We like to give guests their privacy, but we are available any time for questions or needs.
Just around the corner from beautiful Green Lake Park, 10-minute drive to Downtown and University of Washington, and a short 2-block walk to city bus stops. One block to restaurants along the lake, and two blocks from a natural organic foods (website hidden) Lake is Seattle’s hub for recreation. Circling the lake is a walking/running/wheels trail 2.8 miles round trip. The park offers tennis and basketball courts, baseball and soccer fields, golf course, public swimming beaches, boat/kayak/paddle board rentals, and a theatre. The trail is also a great place for people watching and the best way to access many restaurants and shops lining the lake. Public transit stops within 2 blocks.
Other Things to Note
Kids: To be honest, our apartment is not very kid-friendly, especially for children under 8. We don't have a bathtub, our eating space is over carpet, and nothing is kid proofed. We don't have kids, so we have no kid accessories. We find that small children often run wherever they go, and heavy footsteps carry upstairs to our space, as well as other loud noises. Kids also typically bring a measure of extra cleaning. All that being said, we have been pleasantly surprised by several guests with small children who were quiet and clean! So we do welcome children and infants, and they do count as additional guests in our rate calculations.
To Fee or Not to Fee: We used to charge a cleaning fee for each stay. However, we found that 90% of guests automatically cleaned up before checking out and it was making our rates confusing. So instead, we have a Cleaning Checklist that guests are asked to complete before checking out. It allows us to quickly get the apartment ready for the next guests. For guests that choose not to follow the cleaning list, we charge a cleaning fee of up to $50.
Supplies: We provide you with enough toilet paper, tissues, paper towels, dish soap, dishwasher detergent, hand soap, coffee, tea and garbage bags for your stay. We do not provide shampoo, body soap or other toiletries, but there is a small collection left behind from other guests. We have had a few requests for bar soap, but we find that there is always a piece leftover that gets thrown away. If you like bar soap, pack one in your travel bag that you can take back home with you.

Sorry to write the review late. As my mum and I are traveling nonstop.. What I want to say is that Natalie's lovely home is very very comfortable and it is just as how she described. The neighborhood is fabulous! We loved Green Lake and it is a "must stay and see" for any of you who wants to enjoy the beautiful Seattle. Natalie is also a very nice host, helped us arrange the time to check out later due to our personal reasons. We really enjoyed it!
Natalie's house was just as she described on airbnb and perfect for a visit to Seattle! The house could not be any closer to Green Lake and within walking distance of a great grocery store, coffee shop, playground and restaurants. The living space is in excellent condition, the kitchen is well stocked with everything you would need to make a meal at home and both rooms were comfortable with great space. The private entrance to the home and spacious backyard give you a lot of privacy. We had issues with the lock (because we have never used a remote control lock before and didn't follow directions well) - Natalie was very patient with resetting it for us and also very friendly. We really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend her guest suite!
The neighborhood was great! Everything you need is in walking distance. The apartment was clean, cozy and cute!
We came to Seattle to visit our daughter who located here from the East Coast. We were looking for a nine day stay somewhere. This was our first airbnb experience and it was great. Natalie introduced herself upon our arrival and offered any help we might need. We enjoyed the apartment it was just what we needed. The Green lake area is lovely and we walked the lake almost every day. Saw a lot of places in Seattle. Looking forward to the next trip and hope to stay here again.
Natalie's guest suite was exactly as it was described. It was clean, cozy and convenient. The location is awesome! We really enjoyed our stay.
Natalie's lovely home near Green Lake was the perfect spot for us. We had family nearby which made it very easy and the central location between our favorite spots in Phinney Ridge, Ballard and downtown Seattle were very accessible. Loved being able to take a walk around Green Lake in the early morning before the hectic day started. Comfortable beds too! We definitely hope to stay there again.
We really enjoyed our stay. The beds were very comfortable and the apartment was very clean. The Green Lake location is great. We would stay there again and hopefully meet Natalie.

I'm a school psychologist serving two public elementary schools. Along with my husband, I have rented our home for the past three years. We have had such a wonderful experience with Airbnb guests from around the world and have made many new friendships. We love our house and our "Utopian" neighborhood of Green Lake, and we're so excited to share them with you. The house is comprised of upper and lower 2-bedroom complete units, and we are often occupying the main unit, so we are on hand to help with anything you may need. The "other pets" we own are adorable house rabbits that provide nonstop entertainment.
