Roomy basement suite in a recently renovated craftsman home. The suite includes a private bathroom and bedroom, as well as a separate kitchen. I also have small art studio downstairs, and a laundry room. Internet access and parking are included.
Our home is within walking distance of Greenlake (10 min.), and several wonderful restaurants and cafes. By car, the University of Washington and downtown are within 5 to 10 minutes.
Greenlake is wonderful recreational area. Excellent for walking, cycling, or running. There is also a rental area for small water crafts and a playground and pool nearby. Woodland Zoo is a short walk from Greenlake. Over the summer Woodland Zoo hosts outdoor concerts.
There are three fantastic restaurants within three blocks from our home. They include Eva's Restaurant and Wine Bar, Kisaku Sushi, and the Elysian-Tangletown... fine dinning to pub fare. Cafes close by include Zoka Coffee Roaster, Mighty O Donuts, and Hiroki Specialty Deserts.
Transportation - there are two buses that stop near the house, number 16 and 26. Both of them go downtown. Parking downtown can be challenging, so the bus is a great option. The Online Trip planner is a good site to use, when navigating Seattle by public transportation. For special trips that require a car, there are great car share options - like Car2Go.
We love our neighborhood and it's close proximity to all the things we enjoy... good food, entertainment, and recreation. We also love hosting company.
Very spacious and in such a convenient, trendy area! The price was spot on. It was so nice having a kitchen to cook a few simple meals in instead of going out all the time. Chantel and Zack were very nice and made me feel right at home. I will certainly stay there again on another visit.
We had lovely stay at Chantel's place! The space is great and very warm in these cold months which was lovely. There was a nice living room area and great little bedroom. Perfect size and close to the city by car. Great value for a great space!
Although I got delayed in arriving, Chantel had already advised me how to let myself in, so it was a breeze checking in. Since it was late, I did not get a chance to introduce myself until the next day.
Easy parking on the street in a nice, quiet neighborhood. The entrance was well lit with a motion detector light. The place has a separate living room with a large couch and easy chair. The kitchen was clean and convenient with a full-sized refrigerator and gas stove. Coffee and tea were available. The bedroom was cosy and the queen bed was very comfortable.
Overall feel was very cute, clean and comfortable. The only negative I could think of was that the ceilings were low, so if you are a really tall person, you may not like it. But I had no trouble.
Chantel and Zak are delightful people and I enjoyed talking to them. I would highly recommend their home and would definitely stay there again if I could.
Chantel's big basement was nice and cozy. My girlfriend and I really enjoyed the location as well. We were not too far from many places to make the stay even more accommodating. The hard part was getting used to the figure out what was trash and recycling, but after a few days, we got it down thanks to the helpful guide given to us. I really enjoyed my time visiting Seattle and her home away from home basement was great!
Chantel's rental is great and even nicer than described on Airbnb. I have stayed at a few different places is the NE Seattle area as I visit every year and this is by far my favorite and the best value. I only wish I had more time to relax there but I was on the go most of my trip. Thanks to Chantel and Zach. Great place. Great hosts!!
Chantel's place was a wonderful, cozy and warm stay for me during a very cold winter spell in Seattle. She offers tremendous value in a very walkable neighborhood. Like others have mentioned, it's a bit noisy, but lots of privacy and space.
Staying at Chantel's was great. Wonderful, welcoming hosts, convienent location, walking distant to green lake. The unit is comfortable, clean, private, and has everything you need! Highly recommended!!
This private guest suite was a perfect quiet get-away from lively grand children. Bed was very comfortable. Spotlessly clean. Enough equipment in the kitchen to cook a simple meal. Parking easy. Overall experience - wonderful. Hope it's available the next time we're in Seattle.
It is not in my best interest to give this space a good review as that will only increase the competition for bookings! That said, my only disappointment related to my stay is that this spot is already booked for my next trip!
I would recommend Chantel's place to anyone.
This is a well-kept, cozy yet spacious, private basement studio with a very comfortable bed, well-appointed private bathroom, and separate entry. The neighborhood is lovely with restaurants, bars and coffee shops within walking distance. It was perfect for my stay and I will be (trying) to book again for future visits.
The house was in a beautiful neighborhood and the fall foliage was amazing. The furnished basement had a nice size living room, full kitchen, separate bedroom and full bathroom. It was more than I was expecting :) Chantel was very nice. You can hear normal house noises from upstairs, but I didn't mind at all. (There was a great punk-ish/hipster-ish bar near by, The Burgundian. They serve breakfast all day and they have the best bacon I've ever tasted! There were a good mix of regular folks there too.) The house is in a great central location for all of the places I traveled to on my visit. I would definitely stay there again. Thanks!
