Private room in tidy, cozy home five minutes from Seattle boundary line. We (my son and I) are in Shoreline and our home borders a green belt, which means no neighbors in the back, just space. As there are 2 gas fireplaces within 20 feet of each other, the house is always warm. We are two blocks from a huge, wooded park. baseball fields, and a track, and three blocks from tennis courts. The Burke-Gilman Trail, famous for runners and folks on bikes, is minutes away by car. Unfortunately, the bus access is not great (a 15-minute walk), so walking is a necessity without a car.
We have rented a room - and the entire house, when we have been on vacation - out a lot, always with incredible luck. Likewise, I have stayed at numerous Air B&B listings, with the same amount of luck. My son (17) and I are very easy-going, friendly, and helpful. My son, like most teens with a car, is also out a lot, but I am great company! I can help you with what to do and see in Seattle.
Tidiness and cleanliness are a must, as is the ability to share a bathroom. Noise levels should be what they are for us: reasonable. You are free to eat with us, of course, when we are home, as we like guests.
Toni and John Michael were the most gracious and friendly hosts imaginable! The house was so warm and welcoming along with the hosts! I would highly recommend that anyone stay with these two wonderful people! Everything was perfect..and MORE beautiful than pictured!
I really enjoyed my stay, especially as Toni was really helpful and accommodating. She invited me to join her and her son for dinner and a very pleasant conversation. The room was clean and the bed was really comfortable. I'd have no problem recommending this place, especially at that value.
Toni's place is cosy, a home away from home. My stay at Toni's place is really relaxing and thought-inspiring. We had breakfast together everyday, during which we talked about English literature, education, history, science and tech. I enjoyed our conversations a lot and these make me love Seattle more. Thank you very much for providing such a happy experience in Seattle.
Toni was very friendly and welcoming. If I wanted company, great. If I wanted to be left alone that was good too. I felt very comfortable and what I loved most about the house was that it was very quiet.
I am a tall (6'), educated, intelligent professional (high-school teacher) woman from Dutch heritage (100%). I am known to be quite outspoken, which is rare here in Seattle, so I welcome folks from elsewhere! But serious, I am very easy-going, friendly, and hospitable, as is my son, 17.
