CRAZY DECEMBER BARGAIN! If you can use some lovely and economical lodging right about now, this is for you: For December only, book at $68/night (usual price is $89)-- and do the turnover yourself, leaving the place sparkling for whoever's next.
In-city gardeny retreat -- hens pecking outside your kitchen window, downtown just minutes away!
Let us offer you the best of in-city and residential neighborhoods. You'll be across the street from a great little park, and just up the hill from a walkable storefront neighborhood with boutiques, bakeries, restaurants, and a day spa. Some of the best restaurants in Seattle are within a five-minute walk...Crush, Kingfish, Harvest Vine, Cafe Flora...When you've eaten your fill, hit the YMCA just 5 blocks over, where a day membership gets you access to all of their equipment, yoga classes, and swimming pool. Those of you who like consistency with your travel will find a Starbucks and a Safeway three blocks away :-)
Get downtown easily -- 7 minutes by car, 12 by bus, or 30 on your feet. Or stay home -- chill in the fenced back yard or pick raspberries in the front (they ripen in July)
The unit has a queen bed (extra firm with built-in pillow top) with box spring. In addition, a twin-size futon (fold-out) can accommodate a third person.
We can't wait to help you love your time in Seattle!
For those with accessibility issues: There are 12 stairs leading up to the front yard, then seven leading down to the unit.
p.s. Please note that the bathroom has a shower with good water pressure, but no tub.
Quiet time: 10:30 pm to 7:30 am.
This is a completely nonsmoking apartment.
This is a family house in a residential neighborhood -- so, you know, behave accordingly :-)
Please leave things in good shape - no dirty dishes or counters. We also ask that, before you leave, you strip beds, start a load of wash, and remove food from the fridge.
Pets are okay but have to follow the same rules as people - no scratching up the furniture, peeing on the carpet, or howling in the middle if the night. If they absolutely must smoke, they need to do so outside.
The place is clear and welcoming. Very interesting nice hosts. Highly recommend.
Margot & Anthony were wonderful hosts. Communication back and forth was easy and speedy. They made sure we understood everything we needed to know about the studio and were very clear and thorough. Plenty of parking is available and the heater kept us nice and warm at night. Location was in a nice quiet neighborhood. We would stay here again and recommend to friends.
I rented this space for my folks when they came to visit and it was perfect. Margot was incredibly welcoming, helpful and available to answer questions. My folks got around easily, both on foot and taking the bus. The place is clean, cute and comfortable.
This was a great and quiet place to stay. Really enjoyed my time here and will try to stay againin thre future. Thanks for making me feel so welcome!
It was a lovely stay, comfortable and well appointed apartment in a fun neighborhood. We enjoyed walking to Luc for desert, and it was easy to get downtown and to the University District. We had everything we needed to be quite comfortable. Thank you!
The space is just as photographed but there are several minor maintenance issues that need to be addressed and it feels a bit like they are more concerned with filling the bed every night than looking after this property.

Margot is your basic decent person - mother, three kids, job in high tech, writer. She bites her nails, but does not cheat at Scrabble or break other people's things.
Anthony likes to exercise, watch movies, and do good works.
You'll see many of our reviews are of Margot & Ivy -- Margot and Anthony's youngest daughter. Margot & Ivy started being Airbnb hosts in 2012, as Ivy's first job. We had a great time, but Ivy is now spending 10th grade in Costa Rica, so Anthony has been pressed into service :) With our nest now (temporarily) empty, we're renting both our original Airbnb, the separate apartment "Lovely Garden Studio" as well as a bedroom in our own home.

p.s. If you want to know more about your hosts. . .Margot's memoir, "Paradise Imperfect: An American family moves to the Costa Rican mountains" was recently released by Yellow House Press -- you can find (email hidden) or at your local independent bookseller. In addition, Margot's take on Washington's Marriage Equality law was recently published in the New York Times - you can read it by searching on "margot page modern love".
