1. Your guest suite is spacious (580 sq. ft.) and beautiful and includes private sleeping room with queen-size bed; full bath with jacuzzi tub and shower; convenient laundry; light eating space (microwave, small fridge, electric kettle); and large private sitting room with Franklin fireplace, TV with cable --all secluded in the trees overlooking Little Brook. A small garden is available for visiting and contemplation. And yes, we have wireless internet connection!
Although our home has a secluded cul-de-sac feel to it, we are one minute from bus stop; 15 minutes to University of Washington or downtown Seattle, a 25-minute drive to Puget Sound ferries. Shopping, restaurants (and Starbucks!) are all close by. You'll have off-street (cul-de-sac) parking right in front, and so many great sites and adventures, all easy drives from our north end location.
You will have your choice of entries: the front door involves steps up and down, or you may enter through the garage (not as beautiful but direct and just one step.)
3. House rules include NO smoking or smokers and (regretfully!) no pets, and we try to avoid obvious fragrances and allergens, including fresh flowers.
We generally enter our garage (quietly and respectfully) through the end of the large central room you see. Additionally we prefer guests who plan to be out and about most days so we can on occasion access the art studio (no fumes, only water media.)
You will always have complete privacy from evening through morning and we will never intrude on your private sleep and sitting areas.
4. A quiet child may be welcome, with supervision; we charge $10 per person per day for all guests beyond two (four guests max.) Our minimum stay is 2 nights, maximum one week unless we negotiate a longer stay.
We can be unobtrusive but engaging and gracious hosts, and we are looking forward to helping you make your Seattle stay wonderful and productive!
No pets, no smokers please. Prefer no heavy fragrance.
We prefer normal hours (You're out & active most days, quiet at night).
We'll do our best to support your happy time here.
We enjoyed our stay, the rooms were as advertised, very clean and comfortable. Marilyn's house is in an excellent location as many stores and restaurants are within a 5 minute drive. Our host was very friendly and informative. I will likely stay here again when we visit our daughter and family.
The apartment was even better than we had imagined from the listing. Marilyn greeted us warmly when we arrived late at night and brought us muffins for breakfast.
It is quite a spacious set up with everything one would need: refrigerator, plates, silverware, kitchen sink, coffee-maker, microwave, washer/dryer etc. Everything is clean and new. There was plenty of room for our son to lounge in the sitting room and watch tv or read. The apartment is sunny and beautifully decorated with Marilyn and Cynthia's colorful art. It was a great place to wake up to seeing the tops of the trees out the windows.
We had privacy even though the hosts were upstairs. By our own choosing, we had some lovely chats about art and love and life with both our hosts. The location worked well and was easily accessible to wherever we wanted to go. We were glad we did not stay downtown.
Their house is in a cul de sac with two other houses and feels very safe and is beautifully landscaped with flowering trees and shrubs. We would definitely stay there again since it was very convenient, warm and welcoming.
We were greeted upon arrival at Marilyn's house and shown our space for the weekend. She was a wonderful host. We were given just the perfect amount of information about the neighborhood and places to go. We tried a coffee place that was recommended by her. It was a nice walk in the morning through the neighborhood. The space is very clean,quiet and perfect for our trip. Even the cot was comfortable to sleep on! Access and location was ideal for our stay.
We had a wonderful visit and thoroughly enjoyed Marilyn's hospitality. The accomodations were great and the location was wonderful. Marilyn made sure we had information on the area which is appreciated.
Marilyn was a wonderful host and we really enjoyed seeing so much of her art. The accommodations were just as described - very comfortable and convenient. She offered first rate hospitality from a lovely lady who provided everything we needed and more.
Marilyn and Cynthia were charming hosts, and our living quarters were light, clean, quiet, and very comfortable. I really liked the forested setting with the little brook running below our window. We found the space very conveniently laid out and stocked, and they were very responsive to anything we needed. We were very sorry to leave and would definitely come back! We would absolutely recommend this place!!
The hosts are friendly and accommodating. The neighborhood is quiet both day and night. The lodging is very suitable for a guy or gal who needs a comfortable place to sleep and who intends to eat out for meals. Everything was clean and (website hidden) and wifi as advertised.
Retired, both artists, writers, and Cynthia messes with investments. She used
to have a cabin on Orcas, which she and her husband built themselves.,We want
to ferry over to San Juan one day while we're there too. It will be great to catch
up with all the changes since we've been there three years ago.
Also, we are airbnb hosts too!
