The space

Beautiful charming 1906 home in Seattle, 1 1/2 blocks from Green Lake park. One small room upstairs (gabled roof with skylight): Full/double mattress on futon frame; curtained windows overlooking the landscaped backyard plus skylight that brings in great natural light; TV/DVD with videos galore to watch at your leisure; Nintendo 64 with games for playing. Share semi-private first-floor bathroom with other guests (if any) (owner uses separate toilet and sink, but shares shower with guests). Kitchen facilities available, also hot tub in backyard oasis with hammock and heritage-status English Walnut tree.

The room is at the top of a "steep and very narrow stairway". (And if you don't know what a "gabled" ceiling means, please look it up! :)

Close to the #26 and #45 buses (bus stop one block away).

Conveniently located near I-5 and near the Aurora Highway (Route 99).

1 1/2 blocks from the north end of Green Lake, with Greenlake Ale House, Zeek's Pizza, Urban Bakery, Cioccholati Coffee, Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream, and Duke's Chowderhouse.

Green Lake is a state park with a 2.8 mile inner track circling the lake and green grass for playing and running and a kiddie pool in summer right across the street!

*** Exit #172 off the freeway = Very close to I-5, Rte. 99, and bus stop a block away. Near Ballard, Fremont, Lake City, Northgate, and University District. Seven miles from downtown and Capitol Hill, Queen Anne, Magnolia and Cascade. ***

Note: I have very affectionate and well-behaved cat, Pollux, and a sweet dog, Flipper.

Guest access

Hot tub is always on and ready for guests to soak!

There is free Wi-Fi 24/7.

Interaction with guests

I'm a gregarious guy and like to hang out with visitors, but I also respect their privacy and interact only on a level at which they're comfortable. (There's no way to undo having pushed a button.)

The neighborhood

Green Lake is a beautiful neighborhood. I'm just a stone's throw from the park (with a 2.8 mile walking/biking/roller blading path). Getting around is easy with I-5 and 99 close by, yet my backyard is a quiet oasis from the hustle-bustle of city life.

Getting around

I'm close to the #26 and #48 buses (bus stop one block away). Conveniently located near I-5 and near the Aurora Highway (Route 99), 1 1/2 blocks from the north end of Green Lake..

House Rules

Consideration for others is the name of the game! :)

(1) If you use something, put it back when you're done.
(2) Clean up after yourself (for example, pots and pans and kitchen messes; your hair in the bathroom :).
(3) The cats are indoor only so just be careful when entering/exiting.
(4) Mark any food on shelves or in fridge with your initials.
(5) If you have a question about anything, ask away!

There will be a detailed info sheet in the room upon check-in.

Seattle, Washington, United States · Joined in September 2009

Easy-going guy with great pets (a dog and a cat). Performer who stays pretty busy in and about the Seattle area. Gregarious sort of fellow who enjoys meeting new people from various destinations!

I like good food (you'll often smell my soups cooking on the stovetop), good conversation and good company. I occasionally host a game night that guests are invited to, if they are so inclined.
