About this listing
This daylight garden apartment has a bedroom with full real bed and lovely built-ins, a cozy living area with fold down couch, small but full kitchen, full bath with claw-foot tub, and light filled garden sitting room with sleeping futon couch. In a family friendly green neighborhood, you can walk a block or two here or there and find independent coffee houses, pubs, restaurants, shops, wine bars etc.
A few blocks walk puts you on the main bus line to downtown attractions such as Pikes' Place Market, the Seattle Center and Space Needle, the Seattle Art Museum, etc.
Our neighborhood is relatively quiet. You will hear occasional barking dogs, crows and even a chicken or two. It's a family friendly neighborhood if you are traveling with children--easy to walk in, close to the zoo, playgrounds and family welcoming restaurants.
Our yards are living spaces out of doors, you are welcome to sit and enjoy the garden or play on the playstructure (at your own risk). Please do not smoke inside or in the gardens. It is an older home with lots of charm, however it is not sound proof and occaisionally I have dogs upstairs (they are separated from the private entry by gates and the Mother-In-Law apartment is a pet free zone). There is no TV, but bring your laptop or ipad for Free WiFi streaming. Please no outside guests or gatherings at the apartment.
Our MIL is a cozy place from which to launch your Seattle explorations and a refuge when you return.
summer 2013 rates: $85 per night
**note: Currently I do not list on other sites, so my calendar is up to date. If you are making a reservation that starts or ends on the same day as an adjacent reservation, I may need a later check in time or may not be able to accommodate your request due to cleaning time
Our neighborhood is friendly and walkable. There are so many restaurants and shops nearby, yet it is a residential neighborhood where people love their houses and gardens and add artistic touches that make walking around pleasant and interesting. There are kids and animals, farmers markets, restaurants, bars, and coffeeshops. Parks and views of the cascades and the olympics right up the hill. Definitely down to earth you will see a lot of parking strip garden beds
Bus lines to downtown run regularly. #5 is closest to our house and it is up a steep hill 4 blocks, There is another bus #28 that runs along 8th avenue. Look up routes and times at seattle metro
