Queen Bed in the Cherry Hill House

House - Shared room · E Jefferson St, Seattle, WA 98122, United States

The Space

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!

  • Cheap room, except other tenant was up all night doing laundry past quiet hours

  • The reservation was canceled 3 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.

  • 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!

    September 2013
  • 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.

About
I laugh at myself more than pretty much anything. I used to own a bar on Capitol Hill in Seattle. Now I manage my duplex in Seattle and I I also run an artist residency program in New Mexico called Starry Night Retreat, which is where The Blue Room is. Doing that takes me away from Seattle periodically, and it is a lifelong dream to have created a place that values artists and creatives by providing them a place to make new work in an inspiring setting. When I am in Seattle I periodically consult with small business owners to help them with their operations and books. Boring as it sounds, it is actually pretty fun, and I love my clients. I have owned my duplex in Seattle for 6 years, and my four plex in Truth or Consequences for 12 years. At both of them, I have literally had my hands on every piece of the place. I have learned a lot about renovation and property management in the process, which has been interesting and has been really useful with the artist residency program in New Mexico. In New Mexico, I have one unit that is for vacation rentals and the others are for artists, so if you are looking to spend some time with artists form all over the world, this is your opportunity! I also really love to travel. Some of my family is from Argentina, and I have been there as well as Mexico, the UK, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, Morocco, Turkey, Greece, Belgium, the Netherlands, France, Norway, and of course, it being so close, Canada. I have also traveled to 40-odd of the 50 states. I love road trips, train trips, airplane trips... you get the point. Experiencing other cultures is a great adventure for me, as is learning phrases in other languages. As a global citizen I want to be able to thank a person in their own language when I am visiting their country, so I always try to learn to say please and thank you in the local language wherever I visit. My goal is to provide a comfy and affordable place to stay, no matter how long you stay for. That means a safe, secure, and clean place to make my home away from home - even if it is only for a night or two. I'm not one to need 5 star amenities in fancy hotels where I just end up with hidden fees for things like a candy bar or wifi or whatever. I'm much happier if I can spend my money on things around town and experiences in a place I've never been before. This summer I have big garden plans for the front yard in Seattle, and in New Mexico. I have friends who have already started seedlings in anticipation of our summer season. (!) I totally believe that Seattle has the best summer in the entire US, and the summer in New Mexico, hot as it is, is one of the most beautiful place I've ever seen a summer sunset. My long term dream is to bring these two facets of my life together - AirBNB and artist retreats - and run artist residencies and retreats in several cities that also have space for vacationers so that the two groups have more opportunities to overlap, swap ideas, and hang out like, say, over a good campfire or a cold beer. I think everyone is a creative in some way or another, and I like to encourage that in people whenever I get the chance. But like I said, that's a long term dream. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy your stay!
