This comfy, queen sized bed is located off the living room behind a big ikea shelving unit that works great as a room divider. There is a big picture window, a couple of outlets, a dresser, a hanging lamp, and a night stand table with a reading lamp.
The Cherry Hill House is a duplex located in the Cherry Hill/ Capitol Hill/ Central District neighborhood of Seattle. Some people even call it Pill Hill because of its proximity to the hospitals (one of which is right across the street). But it is technically not Pill Hill, it is just south of Capitol Hill, by about a five minute bike ride or a 20 minute walk.
The kitchen has a big fridge, electric stove, toaster oven, microwave, coffee maker, cookware, dishes and flatware, an island with a sink and stools for bar seating, and a deck out back (with landscaping that is in progress this summer).
In the main house, there are two bedrooms. One is off to the left of the kitchen and is listed on airbnb. The other is occupied by a woman named Erinn, who lives in the bedroom across from the bathroom, which is down the hall off to the right of the kitchen. Erinn is a 30 something sweetheart, very laid back, and works at the University of Washington. She has one cat - Aza, who is friendly, fat and happy, and goes in and out through the cat door in the back. This is why we say that there are cats here - they are not in the cabin, but Aza does roam in the main house and outside.
There is also a cabin in the back that is listed on airbnb occasionally. This is who you will share the kitchen and bathroom with, so if any questions or issues come up and I am not around, Erinn is super friendly and happy to help.
There is also an area of the living room that has a bed behind a large shelving unit that is listed on airbnb. There is a little cabin in the front yard that is also listed on airbnb.
Of course, the kitchen and bathroom are used by these folks and the number of people who are around varies quite dramatically, since Erinn's work schedule has her out of the house as early as 5am some days.
We have wifi throughout the premises and we are right on the bus lines to Pioneer Square, Downtown, the University District, and the Eastside. Laundry available on site for $2 per load. You won't find a better deal for a comfortable, queen sized bed and a place to lay your head on for the night!

My stay here was perfect for one night. Clean bed sheets and towels were provided in addition to access to kitchen amenities. The wifi was acting up as mentioned, but it wasn't a big deal. For those interested in doing laundry at the house, you may want to note that it's $2 per load. Location was great for having access to downtown Seattle by bus.
A very last minute business trip to Seattle came up and Monika's place was available. I only needed one night but had literally a few hours notice and Monika accommodated perfectly. It was just what I needed. Also the cat was adorable.
Great and cheap place to stay in. All descriptions written clearly and in details.
Be very careful which room you book! My wife and I had the living room "room" and it was very public. The bookshelf was cubical and see through and the curtain was shear. If you do not need privacy and lights on at night do not bother you then this place would work. The hostel-type atmosphere was not appealing to my wife and I. There were a LOT of people (10) crammed into the house/cabins all sharing 1 shower and kitchen.
It is close to downtown and good restaurants and the kitty is super nice. The other guests were respectful and we talked with some amazing people who had great suggestions of what to do in the city (guests, not host). We never saw Monika.
Just read all of the fine print very carefully to avoid any issues or mishaps. We were unhappy mostly because it wasn't the "like-home" or "comfiness" that airbnb usually provides.
Great location that is close to down town. Worked a treat!
Monika's space was great! I got to meet her and the other girl living there right before I was leaving. I stayed for 2 nights in the room behind the curtain. I'm a heavy sleeper so I had no problem sleeping, however if you are a light sleeper you should probably opt for one of the bedrooms
My girlfriend and I stayed for one night in the space in the corner of the living room, which was separated by a bookshelf and curtains. It was exactly what we expected, and the bed was very comfortable, and the shower was hot with very good water pressure. The living spaces were very clean and tidy, which was much appreciated. When the light in the kitchen was on, the sleeping space got very bright, and could be a problem for light sleepers. Also, two people came home late and were extremely loud (putting things away and talking loudly) after the posted quiet hours. Because the sleeping space was not separated by a wall, this made it impossible to sleep.
Other: The front yard has a wood burning stove, which seems nice for hanging out at night time. There is ample street parking (but this may only be true on the weekends)
Great communication when I arrived and the other guest hadnt checked out. The house is in a great location to where you need to go. The room is spacious and the bed is comfortable. It's not noisy in my opinion like others have stated.
Everything is detailed in the house manual.
I would recommend staying here anytime.
Monika's house manual was awesomely detailed and I had no problem finding the place or getting in. The lady there to greet me was super friendly and good with recommendations for places to go nearby. I do spend quite a bit of time in Seattle and I would say the location is decent. The walk from the train station is a bit dodgy, and I wouldn't recommend doing it at night, but I really didn't have a problem.
I stayed on the bed in the living room which was comfortable and cheap -- exactly what I was looking for for the night. However, if I were to stay longer, I'd definitely want a room to lock my stuff in as there's no real way to secure your bags.
Overall, the house is clean and cute and I believe sees quite a bit of travelers. More of a European guest house, which is a big thumbs up for me!
