Interaction with Guests
We encourage interaction as much as you would like -- we are a very friendly and social household. If you are looking for privacy we can also accommodate.
We live in a gem of a neighborhood and on a really beautiful and safe street with lots of friendly neighbors. The views, even from the street are magnificent -- downtown, lakes, mountains -- really the best Seattle has to offer. There is plenty of street parking.
There are bus stops within a couple blocks that can take you downtown, to UW, Capitol Hill, etc. We are also one block from the very convenient Burke-Gilman bike path and one block from a public kayak/boat launch and yes, we have a two-person kayak and bicycles!

Michael made us feel welcome and we enjoyed our stay. The neighbourhood and view of the lake added to the enjoyment.
We felt totally welcome here. The house was as described, large,quiet bedroom and bed was comfy. The neighborhood was beautiful and a great location for needs.
It's pretty great location as well as has a well decorated & Clean the house.
When you wanna see the stars in the sky & the lake & the bridge when in the house, you can enjoy it.
I had amazing experience when in the party with him in Seattle.
I'll always remember the journey in Seattle
Michael was a gracious host & the property is very well kept.
The view from the back deck is outstanding and inviting, as you are able to look at the water, as well as boats. I also really liked the safe feel of the neighborhood.
You are located just a half-a-block away from a paved walking/biking path.
The house is also located close to UW, as well as rapid transit. Plus, it is only a few (10 to 15) minutes from downtown.
Michael was an excellent host, and his house was an outstanding place to choose as I explored Seattle neighborhoods as part of a move to the city. The room was good sized, with a big window looking out of the front of the house. It was also a 20 minute walk from UW, and 20 minute walks from restaurants on 45th street and around Wallingford. I didn't need to drive most of the week, but the house is well-placed for accessing different parts of the city. I highly recommend it!
I had a great 4-night stay in Michael's guest room. Michael and his housemates are all very friendly people. He even invited me to join them for dinner one night and to go dancing another. I was unable to take them up on either offer, but it was appreciated nevertheless. The place is clean, conveniently located and had everything I needed. One thing to note, the bed is in fact a waterbed which was a first for me and something I wasn't expecting but it was very comfortable and I rather enjoyed it.
About the Host, Michael
Hi, I'm Michael. I have been living in this wonderful house for the past five years and love sharing it with airbnb guests! I own two yoga studios and a large event hall that is just a couple minutes from the house. I mostly work from home though I go to my studios Yogalilfe and hall Omculture very regularly.
I'm quiet and clean and share the upper floor with one great housemate. We all are part of a dance community that dances at OmCulture regularly. We are mostly vegetarian but I still like some chicken or fish now and again.
We have no pets but are very kid friendly. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions!
