There is a queen bed and a new couch that converts to a full sized bed. The house has a huge yard and deck you are welcome to enjoy. There are two friendly cats but they stay upstairs.
We live two blocks from Delancy's, a pizza spot that has been nationally recognized, Honore, a great bakery whose crossiants were recently (April 2011) voted the best in Seattle region and the Fat Hen, a new French bistro that is getting wonderful reviews. The Ballard neighborhood has an incredible amount of restaurants and small, independent shops and Downtown Seattle is 5 miles away and a quick, easy bus ride. We live less than a mile from Greenlake and there are great neighborhoods to explore on all sides. There is plenty of street parking in our neighborhood and a driveway you 're welcome to park in.
1. We are vegetarians but you don't need to be (Though steak cooking in the microwave would be frowned upon)..
2. I'm a teacher and we tend to be early to bed people. A floor seperates us though so just relative peace is fine.
3. No smoking please.
Our stay at Amanda's was great! Everything was clean and cozy. The space was large and comfortable enough for our family of 4 adults and 1 baby. Amanda was gracious to let us make a last minute reservation.
I saw reviews that said "stop looking, book now." That's solid advice.
Amanda is a dream to communicate with -- helpful, and gives great clear instructions. Because of our arrival and departure times we weren't able to meet, but it definitely felt like we had our autonomy while also being warmly welcomed. Pretty incredible. Superhost indeed!
The room was spotlessly clean and so cozy and nice. Parking was so easy. The neighborhood has nice places in walking distance but is quiet and peaceful at night.
All in all, I highly suggest that you book this place!
Amazing place to stay! Amanda was the best host. She was very helpful with any questions we had. I loved the brownies she had made for us and even had milk in the fridge to go with it. The space was spacious and it was everything you needed for a weekend getaway. I would definitely be staying here if I make another trip out to Seattle.
Amanda's communication prior to our arrival was fantastic. When we arrived we found a charming, perfectly clean room with a plate of brownies for us! The room had every amenity we could want and the location was quiet and there was parking! Staying there was a great experience and I would stay there again.
Our stay with Amanda couldn’t have been any better. The unit was clean, cozy, and very well-appointed—they’ve thought of everything. There was food to greet us when we arrived, and we were tickled to find that everything we needed, and more, was there. Amanda had everything a hotel would—soap, shampoo, hairdryer, etc., but also a number of other toiletries you might need, from toothpaste to hair gel. In addition to the fridge and microwave, a Brita pitcher was waiting with water, and a selection of teas was available. The place was warm, even in the middle of winter, and it sits in the middle of a fantastic Seattle neighborhood. Amanda was friendly, easy-going, and available with plenty of suggestions for exploring the area. We hope to be able to visit again!
The place was clean, bright, and cozy, and the host was friendly and wonderful. I would definitely stay here again.
I am an elementary ESL teacher in Seattle.
We love to travel and are happy to have the space in our house to have created a private apartment for out of town guests. We are happy to help you navigate Seattle and discover its charm!
