About this listing

The space

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.

Bob was a great host and we didn't have any problems. We didn't know what to expect because this was our first time using Airbnb, but he left a good impression and we'll probably use the service again.

Bob did a great job making me and my pet feel welcome and really helped us out on short notice while I was in town interviewing for jobs and looking for a place of my own!

Bob was everything you could ask for in a host. He was very accommodating and understanding when our train got delayed by 2 hrs due to an accident, leading to a midnight arrival. The house was immaculate and clean. The location was 2 mins from the closest bus station and next to the Green Lake. The experience would really be hard to top.

Bob did a great job making sure we got our key, and was wonderfully flexible with allowing us to check-in at an early time. The location was perfect for the events we were in town for, and if we would have had more time, we would have enjoyed walking around Green Lake (so close!) and going out for breakfast in the area. There was lots of street parking, and the neighborhood was quiet and peaceful. The house is from 1906, which was pretty cool for me, since I was raised in old homes. Just a note for light sleepers or for romantic couples, though, the walls are thin... just an FYI. Great spot to get some basic shut-eye though if you're needing a comfortable bed for a great price in the Green Lake area.

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.
