We (my husband, 17 y.o. son and I) live 30 minutes South of Seattle in a very typical and safe residential neighborhood. We are 30 minutes away from the SeaTac airport. The house is fairly large with a separate bedroom and bathroom for guests. Your bed is extremely comfortable! WiFi is available. No pets at home, though we have a cat who lives outside. No smoking in the house. Public transportation is not the best here, so you'd be better off having a car! Or we can give you a lift to the train station where you can take a train to Seattle. There is a bus system, but it is quite slow and not too frequent. Seattle is funky and wonderful with a ton of things to do and discover. We also live just an hour away from one of best American skiing resorts - Crystal Mt. We are kind people and welcome tired travelers! You are welcome to use our full kitchen, fridge, and laundry room. Hot organic coffee is always offered in the morning! If you want some breakfast, I will be happy to accommodate your request! We are also seriously into health and wellness, so our household equipment is available for you to use - VitaMix blender, juicers, treadmill, infra-red sauna and fresh greens from the outdoor garden! If you are into fitness, a great neighborhood gym is just 5 min away! We become friends with mostly every guest, so we are looking forward to meeting YOU!
We arrived much later than expected due to car issues, but Irina was very understanding and accommodating. Thank you so much! While our stay was short, we enjoyed getting up early with Irina and her husband and preparing for the day together. From the looks of it, they cook exquisite meals from scratch every day! Quite impressive.
Great place to stay! Wonderful family
Irina and her family will make you feel at home in their house house. The bed is as comfortable as I have slept in for years. I appreciate their hospitality.
Irina and her husband welcomed us into their home with graciousness. The home was very clean and welcoming. We booked fairly last minute, and only met with them for a few moments before heading off to our event, but it was painless. When we returned later that evening, towels were on the bed for us. Thank you Irina and family for being such great people on our first Air BnB experience.
Thank you Irina! Our stay was wonderful. We booked last minute and she was very flexible. All our needs were met and we had a perfect first stay with airbnb!
Clean, Warm and Welcoming! was truly an understatement. We enjoyed our stay so thoroughly that we were grateful to be able to stay an extra day. The accommodations were excellent, and the atmosphere was delightful. Irina was a most gracious hostess. We look forward to our next stay at this lovely airbnb! Thank you again, Irina!
Irina was very welcoming. My boyfriend and I stayed at her place shorter than expected as we were there for a family emergency, but she was very accommodating.
Her place is homey and the room is upstairs. You share the bathroom with her son however he was out of town that weekend.
We booked our trip very last minute and she was able to get us in so we are so thankful!
Irina and Ted are awesome. They were friendly and very accommodating. The place was clean and charming. Highly recommend them and will stay again. They are good humans and suspect we will become friends over the coming months and years as I visit the Seattle area for work.
Irina and Ted were very nice and welcoming people. They made very good waffles for breakfast. The place was bright and sunny and conveniently located. Perfect place to stay if you want to go skiing at Crystal Mountain.
We higly recommend it! :)
I stayed with Irina and Ted during a recent eight-week visit to the area for a school-related internship. The stay was just about perfect. Both Irina and Ted are some of the nicest, most hospitable people I've ever met. They opened up their home and welcomed me as if I were a family member. They have a wealth of knowledge, and were able to offer up great suggestions on where to workout, hiking trails, restaurants and what to do in Seattle. As a bonus, Irina's a fantastic cook! I was lucky enough to get a taste (or many tastes) of her homemade scones, muffins, and waffles!
The room was clean, spacious, and quiet. The bed was SO comfortable.....cannot remember sleeping so well in a long time! You're definitely guaranteed a peaceful night of rest here! The south King County location was convenient. That being said, even getting up to Seattle and Bellevue was relatively easy by car or by the Sound Transit. Although there really aren't any bus stops within walking distance, the Auburn Transit Terminal is an easy five minute drive away. There, you can park your car and take the Sound Transit right into downtown Seattle for $5 each way.
I can't really say enough about my experience. There's that saying, " there's no place like home." I can honestly say that staying with Irina and Ted was the closest thing to being at home!
