The Space

Cosy & clean one bedroom/one bathroom downstairs apartment in home. At 700 square feet, the apartment is spacious with a full kitchen, washer/dryer, gas fireplace, ample recessed lighting throughout, & a tankless/on-demand water heater (so that hot water does not run out mid-shower). Separate entrance & parking in quiet, beautiful & safe residential neighborhood, ideally situated for walking & biking, with dining, shopping & groceries nearby. Large sunny yard has organic fruit & vegetable gardens, mature trees, & a picnic table.

The apartment is very comfortably furnished with a king size Duxiana bed (this is an especially comfortable bed), two full size couches, a large desk, dining table, & reading library. Wireless internet service gives guests with laptops access to radio shows via Stitcher Radio, television shows via Hulu and movies via Netflix. There is also a television monitor for use with DVDs & Wii.

The apartment is ideal for both long & short term stays. Due to our close proximity to the UW, we have enjoyed hosting visiting professors & scholars for extended stays.

Close to: University of Washington Campus; Children's & University of Washington Hospitals; University Village Shopping Center; Magnuson Park; Lake Washington; easy walk to: PCC Natural Market, Metropolitan Market, Burke-Gilman Trail & multiple bus routes to downtown Seattle; easy 7 minute drive to I-5. The apartment is situated at the foot of View Ridge, & a 5-10 minute uphill walk leads to the top of the ridge where there are beautiful sunset views in the evening, as well as views of Mt. Rainer, Lake Washington, the Cascades, & Mt. Baker on clear days as you walk through lovely residential neighborhoods.

Activities: swimming & hiking at 350 acre Magnuson Park with its mile long stretch of Lake Washington shoreline; boating on 22 mile long Lake Washington (sail boat & kayak rentals available at Magnuson Park); walking & biking along 27 mile Burke Gilman Trail with biking/walking trail access to Magnuson Park, University Village Shopping Center; University of Washington campus & hospital; Children's Hospital; shopping & restaurants along nearby NE 55 Street; links to Sammamish River Trail & East Lake Sammamish Trail extend dedicated bike trail to 42 miles.

Interaction with Guests

Guests have their own private apartment. I welcome guests at check-in & show them around the apartment, explaining where to find things & how they work. If guests would like, I also make visit suggestions based on their interests. I am available by phone & email throughout their stay to answer any questions.

After the check-in welcome, I base interactions on guest preference: some guests enjoy more interaction, while others are more independent. My goal as a host is for guests to feel welcome & that they have a comfortable home-away-from-home during their stay in Seattle.

The Neighborhood

The apartment is located in one of Seattle's wonderful walkable, bike-able, & bus-able neighborhoods. Situated in a quiet, safe, & beautiful residential neighborhood, a short walk will bring guests to two excellent markets, bus routes to Downtown & all areas of Seattle, & the Burke-Gilman walking & riding trail. Abundant shopping & restaurant options are a short & easy drive to U Village & other local neighborhood businesses, including Ventoux Roasters, a great neighborhood coffee spot; Queen Mary Tea Room for those who love tea & cucumber sandwiches; Frank's Oyster House & Champagne Parlor for those who enjoy fine culinary pleasures; & Mioposto, a wonderful wood fired pizzeria--all 2 minutes by car or around 10 by foot.

Getting Around

I-5 is 7 minutes away, with exits to Capitol Hill, Queen Anne, & Downtown 1, 2, & 3 exits away.

There are bus stops at either end of our street with routes to Downtown & all areas of Seattle.

If you like to bike ride, the Burke-Gilman wends through the University, Fremont, & Ballard neighborhoods. If you prefer walking, it is a beautiful sheltered trail through mostly wooded & residential areas.

Other Things to Note

For guests with allergies or chemical sensitivities, the apartment is cleaned, & the laundry is washed, with natural cleaning solutions that are free & clear of fragrances & dyes. I also provide natural soap & shampoo that are scented with natural oils.
