Interaction with Guests
Guests will have welcoming hosts, who will meet them upon arrival. Hosts lives are full, so guests who are occupied with their trip and self sufficient are happiest here, as hosting availability is limited. Hosts request to know in advance what brings guests to Seattle and how their time will be occupied while they stay at our home. Hosts will not accept a reservation until guest has shared Seattle plans.
Residential neighborhood with friendly people living in this neighborhood for many years. Age diversity from very old people to young families. Good community feeling. Quiet area of the city. Many people take daily walks and know their neighbors.
Bus is a four block walk. Easy access to University District, downtown, and the bicycle trails. Our neighborhood is 23 miles north of SeaTac airport , 8 miles northeast of downtown Seattle and 3 miles NE of UW campus.
Other Things to Note
Upon requesting a reservation, please tell us about yourselves, so we can determine whether you will be a good fit to stay in our home. Be sure to cover the basics such as where you live, your occupation, why you are coming to Seattle and what you plan to do with your time while you are here. Thank you!
We are a non-smoking home, thank you. Our room price includes a City of Seattle required 9.5% sales tax that we must pay. Please eat in the kitchen and dining rooms only, no food in the bedroom. We do not allow our guests to invite other people into our home. Your check-in time is flexible, according to the hosts availability. No need to make the bed when you leave. If you are compelled to do something, strip the bedding, although it is not necessary. If anything breaks or you need help with a spill, or any problem of this nature please inform us asap, as that is much easier than our being surprised later. Please respect the privacy of other rooms in our home. Please be sure to lock the door when you leave.
Paul and Terry are really nice and welcoming hosts. Fresh air and peaceful environment surrounds the house! It's convenient to take bus No.75 and transfer to downtown.
The Peaceful NE Seattle guest room is exactly that: peaceful. It is located on the lower level away from the rest of the house with exclusive use of the adjacent full bathroom (well appointed with a full tub and overhead shower). Paul and Terry are gracious hosts and we had use of the kitchen and a bit of the fridge so that we could take of our own breakfasts.
The two cats are friendly and no problem. I have a mild cat allergy but the room was free of cat hair and will remain that way if you remember to keep the bedroom door closed. The NE location was ideal for us, near friends in the same neighborhood and also 15-20 minuted from downtown along the 522 (which is strangely nearly empty even when the 5 is barely crawling...).
To top it off, we had a dedicated parking spot while we stayed there, off of the narrow lane-way.
Absolutely delightful! Paul and Terry are the kindest and most considerate of hosts. The room is charming and very comfortable, the neighborhood beautiful, with a "magical retreat in the mountains" feel.
Paul greeted us at the door and briefly showed us the room and a nice, concise info sheet in the room. It was very sweet and comfy and looked even better than the photos. The room and bathroom were very clean and everything we needed was there. Both he and his wife were very nice and helpful. The neighborhood was great and was very convenient to where we had a work project. Wish I had more time to take advantage of the closeby parks and hiking trails! "Peaceful" was the perfect ame for this place and we got great rest while there for three nights. We hope to stay again next year when in Seattle.
Paul and Terry were very gracious and welcoming hosts. The room was comfortable, and private. The neighborhood was quiet and peaceful. I also especially enjoyed the color of the changing leaves.
My arrival was late in the evening, I was greeted warmly & shown to the very nice accommodations. The house was beautiful & the neighborhood was quiet. Paul & Terry were there if I needed anything. I came & went as I pleased, and the lights were always left on for me. I would recommend them to anyone.
Thank you Terry and Paul, you are so kind and warm, make me feel wonderful at the start of my vacation,we can use kitchen and laundry，the house is so beautiful and comfortable, if you will come to China please let me know!
