Using Airbnb for the first time, we were very excited to see how it would work for us. When we arrived at Sheldon’s place, he met us with open arms. His hospitality and kindness made us feel at home right away. The room we stayed in had the facilities we needed for our stay and it was clean and spacious. To have access to a clean bathroom with a shower after our long city walks in the hot summer in Seattle, was greatly appreciated.
Sheldon and I share an appetite for tomatoes, but tasting his own home-grown tomatoes of different sorts was just an amazing experience.
Sheldon shared his knowledge about Seattle and Washington and thereby helped us plan exciting trips in the area. Especially the trip to Mt. Rainier and the national park, recommended by Sheldon, will be remembered. Walking amongst the thousand years old and very large trees in the Grove of the Patriarchs, made a huge impression on both my wife and I. We are very pleased with our stay at Sheldon’s house and we want to recommend others to visit his place, located as it is in quiet surroundings. We hope to come back here again next time we visit Seattle.
My wife and I had a great experience at Sheldon's place. The space was very clean and comfortable, and had more than enough room for the both of us. The neighborhood was very quiet and we sat on the very private patio several times. Yet we were within a couple of blocks of great coffee shops and restaurants , even an ice cream shop. Bus stop one block away makes it easy to get almost anywhere. Sheldon was a super host and was available for any information if needed, also provided us with several of his fresh tomatoes ! Would surely return here for future visits. Rick and Marylou
Sheldon is very accommodating and a great host! The space was ideal and felt like home - very comfortable, quiet, and peaceful. I slept like I was on vacation. We could not ask for a better experience.
This was our second AirBnb experience which did not start with Sheldon but fortunately for us lead to his listing. What a delightful stay!
The suite was exactly like photographed only better. ..immaculately clean, tastefully decorated and extremely comfortable. We both loved the private patio and it's lovely plants...just like home.
The private entrance was also very convenient as was the in room bath,mini kitchen items and tv. All was perfect...and then there was Sheldon who could not be more inviting. He shared the fruits of his garden and it was delicious. If Seattle is on our list again, we will definitely go back to Phinney Ridge. BTW...what a great area...block from coffee shops,restaurants and a Tibetian temple I visited everyday just because of the prayer wheels.
This was a lovely memory of Seattle.
This was a great place to stay. Check in was a breeze and I loved the key code lock feature on the door. The room was immaculate and nicely decorated. We had everything we could have possibly needed. Our host took time one of our mornings to give us a tour of his beautiful garden and show us the many varieties of heirloom tomatoes he has. Although we were well familiar with the area we were staying in as we'd grown up there, it was very clear that if we'd needed suggestions or help figuring out what to do or where to go our host would be a great resource.
This was our first airbnb experience and it was a great one. We would definitely stay again.
This is a delightful room with a private entrance and very pleasant tiny patio in a great neighborhood. It is one block from a frequent bus to downtown. There are 2 good grocery stores nearby, several restaurants including a great Thai one. A good coffee shop. Sheldon had anticipated most needs and was extremely responsive to our requests. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, walking the neighborhood was very pleasant. It gave us a good taste of what living in Seattle might be like. Public transportation works well and Uber provided a quick, cheaper lift to downtown than taking a taxi when we needed to catch an early ferry.
We had a great stay at Sheldon's these past 10 days. The studio was located in a prime area of the city. A beautiful neighborhood full of shops and eateries with extremely easy one bus access to downtown.
The room was of perfect size and with the necessary amenities one needs for an extended stay. The room was clean, bright and airy. Sheldon was a text away always and he always had an answer to any question we had. He was also very helpful with the fact that he knew of all the activities and festivals going on, in and around the city and surrounding area during the time we were there.
We highly recommend Sheldon's as a top pick to anyone looking for a perfect place to stay while visiting Seattle and it's surrounding attractions.

About the Host, Sheldon
Hello, I have been hosting on Airbnb for 36 months and have had wonderful guests from all across the U.S. and world: Canada, China, Malaysia, Singapore, Australia and Germany. I have truly enjoyed these wonderful people and look forward to meeting more of the Airbnb community and hosting you in my beautiful private studio. I recently added an additional option for guests. I now have a private bed and bath available on the 3rd floor!
Should you choose to stay in my home, you will find a private area for your use. I live above the ground floor studio that is listed
I am very well travelled- 21 National Parks in the US, several in other countries. I love hiking, backpacking, and generally being outdoors. I have river rafted the Grand Canyon and also in Alaska. If you are coming to Seattle and hope to visit Olympic, Mt Rainier, or North Cascades National parks, I can provide a little local insight.
I love living in a vibrant urban village. My area has all amenities within walking distance, and this is important to me. I try to drive as little as possible, and for the past 5 years, I have driven less than 5,000 miles per year!
I am an avid tomato grower, so in the summer months, you will see dozens of varieties growing in my very small urban farm. I also grow garlic, onions, potatoes, and some years I grow peppers.
I am a good cook (using all my great organic veggies) but I will not be providing breakfast except in very special circumstances.
As your host, I want to provide a good quality night of sleep in comfortable surroundings.
