Super convenient to UW, large space. Reminded me of college days! Lots of places to eat nearby with wifi. Little hot for summer (we live on A/C) but Sheldon put a window unit in bedroom. That was very comfortable for sleeping!

Sheldon was very prompt and helpful host. Thanks! Place was up a few flight of stairs, was clean. The location is very close to restaurants and the University. We walked to gas works park but was not prepared for the crowd for 4th July fireworks.

Sheldon's place is as described! Right in the middle of Ave, it's close to a bunch of restaurants and shops. There are tons of extra blankets stored in the closet.

Very clean one bedroomed apartment in the very heart of the UW commercial district. Super quick two block walk right onto campus. It is located just north of the dorms and a stones throw away from Wallingford and Fremont (great eats). The subway is for now across campus (at the Stadium), which will take you to Capital Hill or downtown Seattle. The next train station on the line will be at Brooklyn and 45th a few blocks away from the apartment (Northgate extension), but looks like this is still a year away. No matter. For coffee lovers like me Starbucks is lets say- three doors away. Parking is slightly tight, but it available. Coming from Chicago the meters are cheep as is local daily parking. All in all, for me on my own a very central place to stay.

Hi there! My name is Shel and I am in the beautiful Pacific Northwest I heard about Airbnb through many of my friends and all of there experiences have been positive, so I figured I would jump on the band wagon.

I will be travelling to different parts of the world (Italy, Ireland, New York City and Hawaii) with my job over the next year and our beautiful apartment, one block from UW in Seattle, will be empty. We felt like it was such a shame to see it empty and none of our friends and family were available to use our space, so we figured we would try Airbnb!

I absolutely love what Seattle has to offer. I love the hikes, consistent fresh air and unbelievable scenery.

I play softball, and do so competitively nationwide, I am very active and love exploring new places in the city and surroundings.

Personally, 5 things I can't live without... sunshine, friends, community, great food and sports. I actually hold activities for the #2 food group (Seattle True Foodies) in the nation. I am also the secretary of the Seahawks Tailgate Crew. Rent my place and you will be my guest at our party. Help up save for a place of our own. I absolutely love life!

Well, that's me!
