Interaction with Guests
I don't interact too much with guests, once I have greeted you and shown you the ropes. So you can expect quiet time if you need it. I work, volunteer so am pretty busy. I am always available by phone, should you have a need or concern. I live on the premises also.
From I-5 heading west on Highway 16, take exit #4 Jackson Ave .Turn right and continue on the light at intersection. My house in on a corner lot,with a huge hemlock tree at the very corner of my property behind a wood fence.
Entrance to The Secret Garden : Make a very sharp left from North Narrows Drive and turn onto Harmon Street. The first driveway on your right is where you park, or on the side of the street. The entrance is located here on this level from the driveway .Additional parking on the street.For those that are directionally challenged like I am, please print out the map and directions! :)
Taxis and buses are the main mode of public transportation.
Other Things to Note
Love my home, I am in the process of restoring it after years of neglect. So not in prime condition, but will be soon I hope. So please be patient, Progress is happening. :)
With respect and courtesy towards one another. Outside smoking only! No pets.
This was our first experience and it couldn't have been better. Patti and Jerry were the best and most gracious hosts. We felt like we had new friends when we left. Patti's strawberry pancakes were delicious. The bed was the most comfortable we had in our month long trip up the West coast. Their house and secret garden were a sight to behold. We rate them an A++.

The host canceled this reservation 28 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Room was all ready booked, but not updated to reflect on booking calendar. I have offered her and her friend another room with no charge for the additional guest. Guest is still able to come and attend her function, but will have to share a room with her friend. My bad
Patty was great. Very friendly and accommodating. Lovely house in a quiet neighborhood. The listing description was accurate. It was a hot night and Patty had a couple of fans going which made it comfortable for us.
Couple of things that were very minor and really non-issues for us, but not sure if future guests may care about them so putting them in the review for them just in case. If you are sensitive to light in the morning: window blinds are light colored and there is no blackout curtain that closes all the way, but that's pretty typical of any airbnb listing. Private bathroom is separated from bedroom by a curtain. None issue for us since we were a couple. If you are very private: Bathroom has a window with no curtain, but it is a very suburban and sparse neighborhood.
Thanks for your review Payam. We do provide blackout sleep masks with ear plugs upon request. We have listed it on the welcome card along with information on the wifi. We decided not to put a door on the bathroom, it would take up too much room. No curtain on the very small window, because no one can see inside the bathroom.
We absolutely loved it! Those strawberry stuffed pancakes are to die for!
Perfect stay! And one of the most yamie breakfast so far. Thanks guys for hosting us so warmly.
Patty and Jerry are wonderful hosters and their house are very very cute and clean. Patty is very patient for my late check-in and give me a ride when I left Seattle. She is a wonderful cooker too:) Jerry is a good thinker, we talk a lot about cultural (website hidden) is my first airbnb experience and impressed me so much. So I choose airbnb at my second stop in U.S--San Francisco. I hope I will have chance to go back to Patty 's lovely house in the future, maybe with my parents^_^
Amazing home with an Amazing host Patty. I highly recommend this house an Patty. Coffee on the deck in the morning was a pleasure.
