About this listing
The rental is a spacious, well-lit mother-in-law apartment located in the basement of a 1920’s “Seattle box” style single family house. The house is located in the middle of the charming Wallingford neighborhood and is within easy walking distance of a grocery store, myriad restaurants, cafes and other services, and is also near Gas Works Park, the Burke-Gilman Trail, Green Lake, the Woodland Park Zoo, and the University of Washington. Downtown Seattle is 20 minutes away by bike or bus, with the bus stop being one block away. Free on-street parking is also available.
The apartment has a separate entrance along the side of the house, a well equipped kitchen, washer and dryer, wifi and AppleTV. The bedroom has a queen sized bed and the living room has a sofa bed. Note that although the ceiling has good soundproofing, you may hear an occasional low rumble from the three boys above! The property is kid-friendly, has chickens and a grey cat named “Cloud,” a basketball hoop, and a great deck with views of Lake Union and downtown Seattle.
No smoking in the unit or on the property; no pets.
From Jun 1 - Aug 31, 2015 the minimum stay is 5 nights.
the unit was just like described and great for a 4 or fewer people (2 on a sleepr sofa) who need a private bathroom and kitchen and washer/dryer units. Unit was stocked well fro all your needs. great location for visits to Fremont, Gasworks Park, or U District neighborhoods. Hosts David and Nancy were very friendly! Highly recommended!
David communicated all the details of the apartment before our arrival, the apartment is in a lovely quiet neighborhood which was a few minutes walk to the park, and shopping area. The Bus stop to downtown is also one block away.
We thoroughly enjoyed out stay at David's apartment. It was equipped with everything advertised and more, from kitchen equipment, spices, coffee supplies and recycling bins to a good Apple TV service. We liked a keypad system to lock the door. The neighborhood is also perfect: close to the Burke-Gilman trail, the Wallingford business area, freeway access, and easy to get beyond to Fremont or the U. of Washington, but still quiet. We've used Airbnb a number of times, and this was one of our better stays.
What a great area to stay in. Grocery shop and restaurants nearby and only a short bus ride into downtown Seattle. Gasworks park is only a short stroll away. The apartment was exactly as described and very well kitted out. I was told the sofa bed also was comfortable.
Wonderful neighbor. Great for walking. David (host) responded quickly to any questions I had.
The place was just as described. Very clean, nice kitchen and amenities in a great neighborhood.
The studio's kitchen is very well organized and well stocked with everything could need. The neighborhood is serene and within close proximity of awesome food, an easy bus ride DT and UW. Just be aware--you are in a family home with 3 boys--it will not be quiet. We didn't mind as we were out most of the day and it was fairly quiet at night. The bed is a little hard and the pillows flat, so I wouldn't recommend this for anyone with a bad back like myself (I had surgery 5 months ago.) Other than being a bit stiff, I was fine to walk around the next morning. Great location!
