About this listing
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 has a 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.
