Surrounded by views on one side and a garden oasis on the other, this is truly a unique property close to the hustle and bustle of Capitol Hill. Enjoy a private bed & bath on the lower floor of our hillside single family home with shared kitchen.

The space
Enjoy a private bedroom and bathroom in our home, nestled between the Howe and Blaine stairs on the north end of Capitol Hill. While we're both well-traveled, we take great pride in our beloved native state and are happy to help you find the best spots and experiences in the city and surrounding mountains and Puget Sound. We're in a great location for public transit (served by Link light rail, Metro 49 & 70-series) from Sea-Tac airport and Washington State Ferries, and offer a reserved parking spot (upon request) and plenty of free on-street parking. There is easy access to and from I-5 and a Car2Go or bike-share is almost always within walking distance. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Your private room and bathroom are on the ground level of our early 20th century house, which is perched on the northwest slope of Capitol Hill, with sweeping views to the west. The bedroom includes a queen bed, plus an additional queen hide-a-bed couch and has private entry through the basement or shared kitchen. Linens are provided, and we have most necessities on hand in case you forget anything. Our older hillside home does have it's quirks including creaky floors and original single-pane windows, but we try to keep noise to a minimum between 11pm & 7am.

The back door off our sunny shared kitchen and breakfast nook opens up to a private garden, sitting area, and patio, but you'll likely want to spend your time on the front deck overlooking Lake Union, the downtown skyline, Puget Sound, and the Olympic Mountains. In addition, we're right next to one of the best kept secrets of Seattle's park system, Streissguth Gardens, which is a woodland hillside garden with walking paths, specimen plants and striking views. ----- Read more about the surrounding area in the neighborhood overview below. ------ While respecting your privacy, we're happy to share tips about our beautiful city over a cup of true Seattle coffee and are happy to be your home away from home. Come enjoy a retreat in the city. This is a smoke-free household. We are child friendly and have a 6-yo that loves guests!

Guest access
If we are not going to be home we allow access via lockbox 24/7 and have some home automation to change heat, etc. Please let us know if you'd like to drop off luggage early or if you'll need a later checkout and we'll try to accommodate you!

Seattle, Washington, United States

We're right next to one of the best kept secrets of Seattle's park system, Streissguth Gardens, which is a woodland, hillside garden with walking paths, specimen plants and striking views. When you're ready to venture out from the garden retreat, we're an easy walk to the cultural heart of Capitol Hill, with some of the best dining, nightlife, and- of course- coffee in the city. Just up the hill is historic Volunteer Park, designed by the Olmsted Brothers, which includes a botanical conservatory, Seattle Asian Art Museum, 1906 brick water tower with 360 degree views, and Lake View Cemetery, where Chief Sealth, many of Seattle's founders, and Bruce Lee are all buried. The Eastlake neighborhood, home to Seattle's famous house boat community, is a short walk down the Howe or Blaine stairs, and downtown, South Lake Union, Wallingford, Fremont, University District, Montlake, Madison Park, and Central District are all within minutes by car or public transport.

We are Washington natives and love to share our local knowledge of the northwest. We travel both for work and pleasure; not as much of the latter these days as our young son keeps us home during the school year. Dog lovers, cyclists, hikers, and devoted conservationists despite being urban dwellers, we try to get into the mountains as much as we can.

During your stay
We often get a chance to chat in the shared kitchen and breakfast nook. If you prefer privacy, we do keep the sliding door to the stairs closed most of the time.
