This charming, mother-in-law studio is the perfect get-away! Cozy and comfortable, while the Murphy bed make efficient use of the space. The backyard is so peaceful and serene, it's hard to believe you're merely blocks away from 4-star restaurants. There's always parking available, but if you'd like, off-street parking is also available for an extra $5/night.
The studio is in the basement of my 1909 Craftsman bungalow, with its own separate entrance. It's newly renovated. The kitchenette has a small stove top, microwave, refrigerator, pans, dishes, spices, everything you need to do as much or as little cooking as you'd like! The front of the Murphy bed folds down into a desk, so you can work or write if you'd like. You will have access to my WiFi network and printer. There's also a TV with basic cable, DVD player and some DVDs.
Public transportation is readily available. Great restaurants, coffee shops, and boutiques are also in walking distance.
One or two Sundays a month I have Sunday dinner at my house. If you're staying here when people are coming, you are welcome to join in the good food, laughter and companionship. I will let you know ahead of time. Price is one bottle of good red wine.

Had a blast! Leah is really cool and gave us some direction on what to check out in the area. The place was great, super convenient.
Great location and a very nice place to stay!
Frictionless stay. All amenities were clean and well kept. Leah made herself available to us and was very helpful and welcoming. A wonderful experience!
Leah really helped us out. We live in Seattle and weren't planning a vacation, but a malfunctioning sewer at our house forced one on us for a couple evenings. We were able to book Slanted Ivy and move in within an hour. Leah was very friendly and helpful and the accommodations very tidy and comfortable. She even provided coffee beans and a grinder! We didn't have much time to relax in the beautifully landscaped backyard and patio, but very much enjoyed coming and going through it. It is in a great neighborhood, quiet and residential yet walking distance to great restaurants and night life. We will definitely be recommending it to out of town family and friends when they come to visit. Thanks again Leah!
I had a great stay at the Slanted Ivy Vacation Rental. It was very clean and the location was perfect. I would definitely stay there again.
Everything at Slanted Ivy was great. Everything is nice, clean, and new. It is a little too far from downtown to walk but the bus is just around the corner. The sheets were a little itchy but thats a pretty small complaint. I would recommend the rental.
Leah has a host's perfect balance of warm and friendly, while sensitive to giving guests' their privacy. Even the space reflects this with a strategically placed plant in her beautiful garden that gives her guests privacy as they come and go. The basement space is fitted out beautifully with an especially nice bathroom and a useful kitchenette. I loved having the ability to compost and recycle our garbage.
This is a basement space with a single window in the main area and a low ceiling, but Leah has done everything possible to make it pleasant and welcoming.
We spent a week at Leah's and it was great. Leah is a great host, available if needed but not intrusive. The. apartment is compact but she has everything you need in the kitchen. The Murphy bed is quite easy to use, the drop down desk is great and the bathroom spacious. There is even a washer and dryer for use. An added bonus is the private garden, which is beautiful, filled with birds, and has chairs for enjoying it. The location in Capital Hill places you within walking distance great restaurants, shops and the bus. it is a perfect setting to enjoy Seattle.
We had a fantastic experience at this location! The host was super friendly, helpful, and yet very attentive to our needs while being sensitive to our own privacy. The separate entrance to the unit is a big plus so as not to disturb the owner, for example,when coming back late at night. The wifi connection was very strong and the location superb. We walked to downtown Seattle and back numerous times and it only took about 30 minutes each way on foot (a very leisurely stroll in the glorious July-August weather in Seattle). This location is ideally located in the wonderful Capitol Hill district and within a few minutes walk from two excellent grocery stores, Trader Joe's and Madison Market Central Co-Op. There is also a convenient bus stop just a few minutes walk from the unit. And the fabulous restaurants that Leah suggested couldn't have been better and they were all within walking distance! Oh, and the delectable local coffee beans (complete with our own coffee grinder!) and tea options Leah provided were an added bonus. The access to Leah's laundry and drying machines was another great perk!
All in all, we were extremely satisfied with our Seattle vacation due in large part to the hospitality, convenience and comfort of this brilliant place and its lovely host! I will highly recommend it to friends coming to Seattle.
Our stay with Leah was fantastic. The private suite is clean and airy and had everything we needed. We didn't make use of the beautiful backyard, if only because there were too many other great things in the neighbourhood we wanted to check out. It's close to lots of great restos and shops in Capitol Hill, and it was also very easy to get everywhere else by bus. Leah was a very friendly host and a great source of information on the city. Highly recommended!
