About this listing
We are Jana and Nick and we'd love to have you stay in our guest room. It has it's own en suite bath and is far away from the rest of the house, so you can have complete privacy.
The room has a queen size bed (with an awesome mattress), small TV with cable and a big closet. Our house is only a few years old, so everything is clean and fresh.
We provide shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, and hair dryer, so you may be able to get away with packing a little lighter.
We live in a townhouse and the bedroom is on the bottom floor. It can get a little cool down there (great in the summer!) but if you ever get chilly, you have your own thermostat, so you can adjust it to your liking.
Our neighborhood of Beacon Hill is charming, friendly, and has some of the best views in the city. You can see the Cascade mountain range from our house and see downtown, the bay, and the Olympic mountains if you walk about a block.
We live 5 blocks away from the new lightrail station, so you can easily catch a ride downtown or to SeaTac airport. Stops just minutes away include the Seahawks and Mariners stadiums as well as historic Pioneer Square. A main bus line also runs about a block away. We do have free street parking and it's usually easy to find a spot very close by.
A little about us- We are married and don't have any children (except our fat orange tabby cat named BoBo). Jana is an MBA student at the University of Washington and Nick works in the tech world. We are transplanted Texans, but we LOVE Seattle and totally understand why you want to come visit! We won't bug you, but if you want the low down on a few cool places to go, just let us know. We'd love to chat and get to know you a bit.
We look forward to meeting you!
Our main goal is that you enjoy your stay and have a great time in Seattle. If you need anything please just ask!
We do ask that you follow our house rules when you stay with us.

Please refrain from going upstairs from the entryway. That is the private area of our home.
We enjoyed our time at Jana's in Seattle. We loved how close Beacon Hill was to the downtown area, and we felt secluded from the business of downtown at night. We did have to take a zytec allergy med because of our cat allergy, but we knew they had a cat coming into the experience so we were prepared. We had a great time and recommend this private room for a place to get good, comfortable rest. Thank you Jana!
The host welcomed me (and even loaned me a bottle opener!). There's on street parking that isn't metered; however, it's a 5-10 minute walk to the light rail station connecting to downtown and the airport. The neighborhood is a mixed income area and doesn't have the uniform gentrification present in destination Seattle areas.
My partner and I went to Seattle for a couple days to check out the city since he's considering transferring his job there. Jana and Nick's place was perfect for our stay-- very private, easy to access, clean, and walking distance to the light rail (a HUGE convenience)! We had an opportunity to chat with Nick who was very warm and welcoming and provided us great insight into what it's like to transition from living in the south to Seattle.
The room is quite small but has a large closet so your stuff doesn't have to limit your space. It was a great size for two people, particularly since we spent most of our days out and about. Jana and Nick were very prompt in responding to any questions we had via text. This was our first experience with airbnb and it was quite positive.
We sadly didn't meet Jana and Nick because we came late and left early and spent the whole day running around. The room was just as described and it had everything we needed! It was really handy that the stairs to our room downstairs left staight from the front door since we arrived late because of our flight. The location was just great, we loved the peacefull neighbourhood andit was a short walk to light rail and it was super easy and fast to get to downtown. If and when we come back to Seattle we would be more than happy to stay in here!
The host greeted us warmly on arrival and indicated that minimal interactions between the host and us should be expected. We appreciated the privacy and found the location to be convenient, as it was close to public transport and amenities. Unfortunately, although advised by the host that they did not have a chance to fully clean the room prior to our arrival and the previous guests departure, it was apparent that room had not been thoroughly cleaned for a period of time. As such it did not meet our standards of cleanliness and detracted from our experience.
It was a great location! It was a very private room in a nice neighborhood! We felt spoiled by that convenience. Just remember that the room is small but the bathroom is a decent size.
Nick was warm and cordial. Made us feel welcome. Your neighborhood is conveniently located for the light rail and bus. We did not use our car while staying in Seattle.
