About this listing
Sunny bedroom with a downtown view in a 2,000 square foot house with decks, balconies, and porches. The house is on a corner lot in the heart of Seattle's charming Wallingford neighborhood and features an airy floorplan and an eclectic decor.
Public transportation is excellent and you don't need a car to enjoy this part of town, but if you have one, parking is free. I have a separate apartment so chances are good you'll have the house to yourself most of the time.
This listing rents out a sunny bedroom in my house is on a corner lot in the heart of Seattle's charming Wallingford neighborhood. Right now I'm doing a minimum stay of 5 days and looking for folks who are in town for work or a longer stay.
The house is south facing with an open floor plan that allows for a lot of light- a huge bonus in Seattle. Enjoy commanding views of downtown, Mt. Rainer (on sunny days), the Cascades, and the gorgeous Aurora Bridge. Enjoy the outdoors on the rocking chairs while sitting on the covered front porch, grill out on the back deck, or drink in the views from the bedroom balcony.
Great option for folks visiting the UW or exploring Seattle's many neighborhoods.
I am offering a special rate while I try out the airbnb experience. I've used the service on the road but am new to renting out my home. Come be my first guests!
Take a long relaxing bath in the vintage cast-iron tub or a refreshing shower in the modern, newly remodeled... um, shower.
Spacious, fully equipped kitchen with all you'd ever need to cook a gourmet meal.
About the 'hood: Take a quick walk the Wallingford and Fremont main drags with out-of-this-world dining and drinking options. Check out Lake Union, gasworks park, the burke-gillman trail, the Fremont Troll... all within walking distance. Very centrally located and easy bus access to UW, downtown, Ballard, capitol hill, etc.
I have a friendly dog and the bathroom upstairs is shared. There is a half bath on the first floor and a full bath in the basement for use as well.
Free and easy parking, free wifi. Come over to Wallingford and stay a while.
A 2,000 square foot living space, plus porches, decks, and patios!
Interaction with Guests
I travel a lot for work, but when I am in town I have a studio apartment on the property that I stay in when guests are in town. So I'm here if you need me, mostly out of the way besides that. For the most part you'll have the run of the house.
It's a quiet block but a short walk away are more amazing bars, restaurants, music venues, and parks than you can shake a stick at!
Public transit is abundant and easy from Wallingford, a central hub of the city.
Other Things to Note
There are 3 bedrooms upstairs, and occasionally I will rent out a second bedroom, so you may sharing the house with another guest or a couple, but no more than one.
-No smoking inside please. Feel free to smoke on one of the decks or balconies. Dispose of butts appropriately.
-No pets, no exceptions. I love pets but it's better this way. Sorry!
-No excessive loudness or parties.
-Please leave things pretty much as you found them and abide by the golden rule :)
-You must be a fun person!
Other than that, just hope you enjoy the house. Cheers!
I stayed at Cam's place for five weeks while visiting Seattle for work. Cam is really easy-going, friendly and welcoming, and he made me feel at home straightaway. He was always able to suggest things to do and see. You couldn't ask for a better host. Cam was kind enough to introduce me to 'American' football, just in time for the Superbowl final - what a time to be in Seattle!
Cam's house is fantastic. Honestly, I could not have been happier with my choice to stay here. I knew I was going to enjoy my stay as soon as I stepped out of the taxi! Comfortable, stylish (the pictures really can't hope to do it justice!), spotlessly clean, well-equipped (I wish I had Cam's kitchen back in the UK), and overall a great place to relax and make your Seattle 'home'.
I was working at the University of Washington, and the location couldn't have been better - just a short walk along the waterfront, with views of downtown Seattle. There's plenty to see in Wallingford, but it's quiet and safe. It also has a 24hr supermarket. Fremont is also just a short walk away, with great coffee (of course). Plus, good bus services to downtown make this the ideal location.
I'd definitely stay again, to hang out with Stella (Cam's ace dog) if nothing else! Highly, highly, highly recommended.
Thanks again, Cam.
Cam was a perfect host! I spent five weeks in Seattle and was really happy to be in such a nice place. He always had nice tips about what to do around and in Seattle. He has a really nice dog (Stella) and she is also great. The kitchen is big and nice and I used it almost every day. The living room is also great and cozy. I was really happy to have the room with the balcony, which offers a great view of the Seattle skyline. I hope to come back to Seattle again and I would really like to stay at Cam´s place again!
I reserved the sunny bedroom at Cam’s place for a new team member who was in Seattle for two weeks of intense training because I wanted her to have a comfortable place to relax at the end of a long day. The woman I booked for could not have been happier and was thrilled to be able to come home from work and unwind in comfort. I visited her one evening and was so impressed with how beautiful and comfortable everything was. Not to mention spotlessly clean! Having access to Cam’s wonderful kitchen was a huge bonus as well.
I highly recommend booking one of Cam’s rooms for anyone coming to Seattle. He’s a great host, the neighborhood is wonderful and close to everything. I’ll definitely book with here again. Thanks, Cam!
Gorgeous, gorgeous place. This man has impeccable taste. I stayed at Cam's for 5 weeks when I first arrived in Seattle. He was super easygoing and put me at ease, sometimes difficult when you're in a new country. It wasn't hard to make his home in Wallingford feel like home. Lots of space in the living room to hang out when you want and the bathroom was very clean (always important to me). There are even speakers in the kitchen and the back porch that you can use to stream your music over. There was also room in the garage to keep my newly purchased bicycle. Happiness. Great stay.
I stayed in Seattle for a month at Cam's place and I don't think I could have found a better place to stay. Cam is a super welcoming person and I immediately felt at home. The house is very comfortable and in a great location in the Walingford neighborhood with easy access to University of Washington campus and medical center. Everything you need is nearby and it is very easy to get to pretty much any interesting part of Seattle. Additionally, you have access to a full kitchen, refrigerator space, and a laundry machine and dryer which is all really useful if you are in Seattle for an extended stay.
Cam has a dog, but she is very sweet and warms up to visitors quickly. For me the dog was no problem at all.
I wouldn't hesitate to stay at Cam's again and if any of my friends travel to Seattle in the future, I would absolutely recommend this as a great place to stay.
Cam is a very friendly, honest person and a great host. If you are planning on staying in Seattle for a while, especially if you need to be near the University district, I highly recommend staying here.
My stay at Cam's house was perfect. The room and the home we spacious and beautiful. The location was unbeatable with views of the Seattle skyline. Cam was a great host. Super nice, really cool guy. I also became best friends with his incredibly sweet dog Stella. If you are looking for a great, classic, Seattle home, this would be the place.
