About this listing
Beautiful charming 1906 home in Seattle. One 10' x 14' private bedroom on first floor with queen bed. Share semi-private new bathroom with other guests (if any) (owner uses separate toilet and sink, but shares shower with guests). House has lots of light, landscaped backyard oasis with hot tub and hammock and heritage-status English Walnut tree. Kitchen facilities available, use of common areas and hot tub on backyard deck.
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 Districs. 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.
It's possible to accommodate up to two additional people with an upstairs back room with double futon. There's a skylight and the double back windows give a lovely view of the magnificent English Walnut and backyard.
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.
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 (including, for example, 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!

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.
