Slanted Ivy Vacation Rental

House - Private room · E John St, Seattle, WA 98112, United States

The Space

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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • The place was so clean and nice. It's very private and comfortable. The public transportation is also very convenient.

    March 2014
  • We had another great Airbnb stay. Leah's place is clean, quiet, and within walking distance to all of Capitol Hill. We would definitely stay here again.

    March 2014
  • Leah's place is in a great neighborhood and the apartment was perfect. We stayed for 5 days and it felt like home. What a great deal for a kitchenette, private bathroom and private entrance. Also, the backyard was a huge perk! We feel like we got really lucky to find Leah. She was accommodating and super friendly. I highly recommend staying here, you'll feel like a local!

    March 2014
  • 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.

  • Frictionless stay. All amenities were clean and well kept. Leah made herself available to us and was very helpful and welcoming. A wonderful experience!

    July 2013
  • 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.

    August 2012
  • 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.

    August 2012
  • 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.

I have lived and traveled all over the world. Seattle is my home now. I've been here the longest I've ever lived anywhere (5 years.) I love this place, and would love to share it with everyone. I try to eat at a different restaurant every week, so I'm pretty knowledgeable about the local food scene. For my day job I write computer manuals for a California software company. I telecommute, which means I will be sharing the backyard with you on those beautiful Seattle days! I'm also a fiction writer, with many novels and short stories professionally published.
