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. Hosts have demanding professional lives, so check in time is variable, depending on hosts availability that day.

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 were gracious hosts, we visited the first night, they showed us where everything was. The room was comfortable, although. A clock would have been nice, and a bath mat also. the neighborhood was very quiet and secluded, but we didn't have trouble finding it.
Thank you for your suggestions, Sandra. We have a clock available had you asked. With high usage of cell phones and computers (which you had) I removed the clock thinking it unnecessary, and I will return it to the room. Just to clarify, there was a 100% cotton thick bathmat in the bathroom, and I realize you mean a nonslip mat for inside the tub, as you told us when you were leaving. I know I asked you and Dennis to let us know of anything you needed and I just repeat that asking for what you want is the most effective practice. You would have had a tub mat and clock to use for your stay, had you asked. Come stay with us again if you are interested! I hope Dennis recovered thoroughly from his bug. All best wishes.
I am so glad that i can be staying in this guesthouse for my five day journey in Seattle:) Terry and Paul are very friendly and kind :) the view around the house is fascinating :) I wish i can be staying there for a longer time :) I am gonna stay in the same place if i am going back anytime :)
This is our second time here, so obviously we liked it the first time. This is becoming our home-away-from-home in Seattle. Paul and Terry are great hosts and we really enjoy talking to them. Their place is quite and relaxed and the room and adjacent bathroom are very private.
Paul and Terry's home is incredibly comfortable. The neighborhood is charming and quiet, and is close to public transit. Both hosts are wel
Terry and Paul were super hosts! We really enjoyed our stay. They gave us ideas what to do in Seattle and they make us feel home. Thanks!
I felt welcome and enjoyed brief conversations with Terry and Paul. They were busy and so was I, so we made good use of our brief times together. They respected my privacy and provided a lovely and convenient place for me to stay at a very affordable price. This is my first experience with Airbnb and it was very positive. I'll definitely be using it again.
Everything was accurate on the listing. Paul and Terry were very gracious and kind hosts. Definitely made me feel at home and comfortable.
