The Space

You will LOVE the Oasis Suite! Newly remodeled with beautiful wood floors and a soothing color, you will fall asleep in peace and comfort! Original art graces the wall. Feel free to book and stay as long as you need. Perhaps you are traveling in and need a quiet place to stay near the airport. Or perhaps you need a week getaway from the norm. You will feel at home, away from home. Whip up a tasty bite in the kitchen, or set your laptop up at the dining room table. This popular suite with a private bath and hallway is completely separate from the rest of the house. The Queen Bed is pillow-top with luxury sheets and pillows. You will have no trouble getting an excellent night sleep! There is a small closet to accomodate your things. The newly remolded bathroom is large with lots of natural light. Shower has a luxury mounted head that delivers variable water pressure. The rest of the house is open and spacious, so feel free to spread out and make your-self comfortable in the shared living spaces.
You are welcome to utilize the fully stocked kitchen for meals. Coffee and tea will always be provided as well as a few snacks if you get any late night cravings! Fridge space is also available if you need to pick up a few groceries. I provide fresh towels as well as any necessities you may have forgotten: toothpaste, deodorant, shampoo etc. Laundry service is available for $5 per load.
My home is situated in a quiet residential area of Burien, just 7 mn from the airport and 15mn from downtown Seattle. Bus stops to downtown Seattle are within walking distance and if you have your own car, you will have a reserved parking space in the back. You'll find lots to do in Burien. Great restaurants and shops are within walking distance, including one of the best Chinese restaurants just across the street!
You will love the back yard, which is fully fenced and completely private with two different patios to enjoy. I recently installed a hammock for guest use- perfect to read a good book.
I love having people in my home and sharing conversation and travel stories. I believe strangers are just friends you haven't met yet.
I only require that you are clean, non smoking, positive, open-minded, responsible, and gay-friendly. Look forward to meeting you and maybe making a new friend! Let me know if you have any questions:)

Guest Access

While you are a guest here, please consider this your home. The living room is large and spacious with plenty of room to hang out with your laptop and work on projects. The adjacent dining room table is a good spot to work as well. Downstairs there is another lounge if you want more privacy. Feel free to use the kitchen as long as you clean up after yourself. Im happy to provide coffee, and tea, spices, oil, and any other cooking essential you would like to use. Feel free to use the pots and pans and dishes etc. as well. The yard is a great place to be during the summer! You will often find me on the porch drinking coffee in the morning, but there is also a nice outdoor patio that you may enjoy or the hammock on a sunny day. The only areas off limits, is the back bedroom which is mine, but other then that, I hope you relax and enjoy your time here.

Interaction with Guests

I have had many, many wonderful guests stay at my place during the last three years. Its been a pleasure to share coffee moments, or even a sit down dinner with so many amazing travelers. I have a guest book that I encourage people to leave notes, and a large map that I hope to keep track of many of my worldwide visitors. If you want to chat, Im happy to share. If you are more private and like to keep to yourself, I respect that. You shouldn't feel pressure to interact- (although my dogs may think otherwise!) Just come and go as you please. You make this experience what you want it to be!

The Neighborhood

Burien is a great little town! Downtown proper is 1 mile South - so about a 15-20mn walk. There is a nice route through residential and along a few parks just a few blocks up on 4th ave. In downtown, you'll find a very nice library, coffee shops, bakeries, and some fantastic restaurants. There is also a small theatre that shows older releases and serves food.

Getting around

The transit center is 15mn walk away, although buses go by my house regularly. The light-rail is also a good option- with a station about 8mn drive away, you can leave your car and head into the city, vehicle free.

  • Great location near SeaTac international airport. Bethany is lovely! I recommend staying there.

    September 2013
  • Stayed in this room for the second time and must say - loved it as much (if not more than) the first time! Had driven from Boston to Seattle with a friend and was exhausted upon arrival - it was the perfect thing! Extremely comfortable bed and very peaceful room. Bethany was a delightful host as always - looked forward to running into her when getting home after a long day, always managed to strike up an interesting conversation! And everyone in the house was extremely friendly and welcoming. Had a spur of the moment community dinner here on one of the other Airbnb-er's last day and it was really great! Don't know how Bethany manages to pull in the nicest guests time after time, but they definitely made my stay here that much better! Would definitely recommend - great experience!!

  • We arrived late in the afternoon and were welcomed by two lovely dogs and we entered Bethany's wonderful house. Although we stayed just one night, we felt like home. Bethany is a totally kindly and hospitably person. The oasis was really charming and comfortable. We hope we'll come back one day!

  • Good, comfortable lodgings. Convenient for us as near Sea-tac airport

    September 2013
  • Nice little secluded house. The bedroom and bathroom are separated from the rest of the house by a single door, so you get a great private place. Highly recommended!

  • I had an absolutely fantastic time staying here - so great in fact, that I cane back a week later when I was back in town. Super convenient location - just down the street from a great Trader Joe's which was a huge plus for me :) The outside spaces are absolutely beautiful - I could (and did) sit on the porch and read for hours. The inside is even more beautiful than in the photos. Imagine living in a cozy museum - huge original paintings, beautiful sculptures and tasteful furniture - along with a crackling fireplace and homemade scones (courtesy of your lovely hostess). Along with the absolute friendliest animals and incredible roommates. Would definitely stay here again - and I am!

  • I loved staying with Bethany and her crazy animal family while visiting Seattle on business. I felt very at home and it was peaceful and quiet for me at night time so I could catch my much needed rest.

    You will be a welcome guest in Bethany's home and I will certainly chose to stay there again, if I am lucky enough to get back to Seattle.

    September 2013
  • The place is just as described! Great location, near the airport, and Bethany is a great hostess!

    November 2012
  • Nice large private bath, and a very comfortable bed. Quiet and restful. Bethany is a very gracious hostess and we enjoyed discussing her art and art collection. Our stay was very brief, but pleasant.

    November 2012
  • Bethany's house is really neat and interesting. You can tell she has done a lot to keep the 1960's look of the house, but at the same time has made nice improvements to the Oasis bathroom. The house is large and spacious. Bethany herself was very helpful in suggesting restaurants and local parks to visit. The weather was not conducive to using the beautiful outdoor patio, but would have enjoyed sitting out there if not for the rain.

About
Hello! What a great experience it has been opening my home to so many wonderful people out there. I hope you will be the next one. I love cooking, and sharing good food! I love it when I come home and guests have made themselves at home in my kitchen and are laughing together over stories. Now, because of all the wonderful people that find me through Airbnb, this actually happens quite often. My favorite commercial growing up was about a little boy bringing his friend home for dinner and the dad welcomes him, saying: "Pull up a chair!" The tagline that follows is: BEEF. IT'S WHAT'S FOR DINNER. I loved the idea of spontaneous guests always being welcome, and I wanted my home to embody that openness. I am accepting of all people and hope you will be too.
