Space Age ... meet Airbnb.
Here's your chance to glamp (glamor camp) within a stone's throw (given a good arm) of Seattle Center and the Space Needle. A brand spanking new 25-foot Airstream is ready and waiting. Complete with a queen-size bed, full kitchen, and wonderful yard, it's not exactly roughing it. Add 2 wide-screen TVs and Bluetooth, and maybe we should rename it Urbamping. The shiny, riveted exterior is mirrored inside, with beautiful lighting and plush leather furniture.
The kitchen is stocked with coffee, tea, and treats, and features a latte-making coffee-maker. Soft, plush leather seating greets you in the front area. All fixtures are the highest grade in this Airstream "Serenity" 25.
The bedroom has a queen-sized, firm, pillow-top bed, and is very private. Wake up in the morning to the hummingbird couple that frequents the fuscia bush outside the bedroom.
You look out onto a wonderful, secluded patio, surrounded by flowers and gardens. Treat yourself to the hammock, or just laze about in the steamer chairs.
The home itself is a Seattle landmark, just a short walk to the Seattle Center, home to the Space Needle, the Chihuly Glass Museum, the Seattle Opera, Repertory Theater, and all the many festivals there.
Slightly further afield, but an easy stroll, are the walking bridge to the Sound, Olympic Sculpture Park, and points south. Up the hill a couple blocks is the famed Kerry Park Overlook, providing the iconic and mesmerizing view of glittering downtown Seattle by night, and Mount Rainier by day. Amble a few blocks further west and the Olympic Mountains greet you at Parsons Garden park, where you can picnic in solitude within a lush garden.
For your belly, there is the world-famous Toulouse Petite restaurant (Louisiana cajun, including its Bloody Marys) only 3 blocks away. Next door to that restaurant is another also boasting inlaid wood tables and fanciful ironwork: Pesos. Across the street is Tin Lizzy for a very private, very glamorous cocktail and treat. A dozen other fun restaurants grace the "Uptown" area. Try the Mecca for a breakfast diner replete with sassy waitresses, or Phucket for Thai cuisine. 10 Mercer is also a great favorite. The intimate Sitting Room is only 2 blocks from the house.
The Bus #1 runs downtown (a block away), as do the RapidRide and several other buses. Or, just board the monorail at the Space Needle and your next (and last) stop is downtown.
Parking must be approved in advance because it's tight. You'll need to sign a parking liability release and an agreement to be bothered by other guests if your car blocks theirs.
Absolutely no smoking without a plastic bag over your head.
We have 2 wonderful rescue dogs, one an American Bulldog (Bell) and the other a mix of everything on the planet (Stan). They're a little on the large side. Because Stan had a rough start with humans, he's very shy, so please do not engage him. Sorry, there's no room for more pets.
Nadine's Airstream was great! We stayed two nights and are great people to stay with....including their dogs. The trailer is in their backyard and is stocked with everything you'd need. The location is close enough to downtown but it's still very quiet for being in the city.
A nice, private space in the heart of the city! The trailer was as-advertised and provided a nice base-of-operations for exploring Seattle. My only concern would be the temperature of the trailer when it gets cold (it was a little chilly in the morning despite a small space heater), but that was not a problem for my trip in April!
I booked Nadine's airstream for my parents. They had a great stay and found the nieghborhood to be really convenient and walkable. Nadine even got my mother some decaf coffee and helped them to get on their way back to the airport. Thanks for being a great hostess and helping me with the sunrise trip! Highly recommend :)
Arriving at the home, Nadine came out to welcome me and was very friendly assisting with my luggage. She guided me into the beautifully landscaped back yard, and gave me a thorough rundown of how to use everything in the Air Stream trailer.
The accommodations were sparkling clean and exactly as listed in all the online pics. Very cozy and homey, this trailer truly has all the comforts of home. There is a nice list of restaurant recommendations and local Seattle tour guides if you are new to the city. The location was fantastic, walking distance to many wonderful eateries and the Seattle Center / Space Needle / EMP. The evenings were quiet and peaceful. If coming home after nightfall one finds the back yard very well lit and welcoming with lights strung overhead casting a warm soft glow.
The parking is very tight, this is Seattle after all... and to that point Nadine was very accommodating allowing use of the driveway and shuffling cars around when necessary.
I highly recommend booking this property, will definitely be back during my next stay in Seattle!
Nadine and her husband Mark were great hosts and the Airstream is awesome! I had a noon checkout time at my hotel which was several hours earlier than the specified check-in time for the Airstream, but Nadine was very gracious and responded quickly to my request for an earlier check-in. She met me at the home and showed me the ins and outs of how the Airstream works, then gave me some great tips on areas of interest to explore locally.
The Airstream is just a couple blocks down from Kerry Park, where you'll find the best views of the Seattle skyline, the waterfront, the Space Needle, and so on. Walk a little further across and you can admire the beautiful architecture of the homes on Highland. Walk back down the hill and you'll be at the Seattle Center in 10 or 15 minutes at most!
I thoroughly enjoyed my time in the Airstream and was able to make the best of a short 2-day trip because of its proximity to everything.
Thanks again, Nadine!
I could not have asked for a better Airbnb experience! The Airstream is exactly as it appears in photos, super clean and comfy. We arrived pretty late, but Mark was awake and kind enough to show us all the details of the Airstream. Towels and toiletries were provided, as was a bottle of wine and croissants, and the space heater in the kitchen really does warm up the entire place! Airstream should hire Nadine and Mark to their marketing team because after our trip I'm seriously considering buying one now!!
Nadine greeted us upon our arrival and explained the ins and outs of her wonderful Airstream accommodations.
Eric and I had a great stay! The bed is comfortable, the bathroom (toilet & sink) surprisingly room... lots of storage, and the sofa and table definitely large enough for two.
The location couldn't be better, with its walking distance to many Seattle landmarks, as well as the waterfront. The nearby public transportation (buses to downtown and Capitol Hill) is excellent, too!
Thank you to our friendly and helpful hosts Nadine & Mark!
