About This Listing
Comfortable and complete mother-in-law apartment easy walking distance from the UW, short bus ride to downtown. Well-equipped kitchen, and enjoy fresh, raw honey from our backyard bee hives. Lovely neighborhood, great for kids.
Full, separate apartment with side entrance in our beautiful, garden-wrapped Wallingford home. Easy 7 minute walk to the University of Washington, bus stops to downtown / South Lake Union etc., shopping, movie theater, restaurants and bars.
We'll welcome you with fresh eggs from our chickens (when they're laying) and organic honey from backyard bee hives (safely removed from your apartment, but available for impromptu tours in season).
The studio apartment features a full kitchen with gas stove, quality cookware, breakfast bar to the living area. The kitchen comes with coffee, cream, and basic condiments. There's a hair dryer and iron included for your use.
For sleeptime, there's a very comfortable queen-size bed and sofa that can convert to a second full-size bed. You're welcome to use the back deck and barbecue, weather permitting.
Wifi Internet access is provided, but no television, sorry! Seriously, you don't need it.
The apartment is attached to our family home, so there is an early-rising, life loving cherubic six-year-old in the equation. We do our best, but walking and talking noise does come through. On the other hand, you don't have to worry about making noise!
Parking on the street is free and generally abundant. Because we are near the university, it tends to fill up during the school day, which may mean if you're looking for a new space between 9 am and 4 pm weekdays during the school year, you may have to go a block or so.
There are several bus routes (510/511, 26, 71/72/73) that stop a few blocks from the house and then head downtown. The trip takes 10 - 20 minutes, depending on destination / time of day.
We've programmed in daily, weekly and monthly rates into AirBnB, so if you request a 7+ day stay, it will automatically quote you the weekly rate, and if you enter 28+ day stay, it will automatically quote you the monthly rate.
Note: we generally have a 3-night minimum. In high season, we may make exceptions to fill in holes.
Bus lines run all around us, less than 10 min by express bus to downtown and the convention center.
You'll have your key and entrance, and the sound doesn't really travel up from the apartment to the rest of the house, so come and go as you please.
No smoking inside, please apply fragrances outside, no pets.
Please leave the apartment in the condition you found it.
Jordan is a great host. Even though he was travelling during our stay, he was quick to respond to our questions and made sure everything went smoothly. The space felt larger than the photos, which was great for us and our two boys (ages 2 and 4). Plus we could take them to play at the elementary school playground across the street. Parking was a little tricky during school hours,
but the location was very convenient to several bus routes.
We didn't meet Jordan as he was out of town. The place was clean and comfortable and suited our needs quite well. It was also surprisingly convenient for our Seattle excursions.
A really well kept apartment and in a great location; sometimes if you peek out the back window you can even see the chickens wandering in the yard.
Jordan was accommodating and has put up helpful little notes all around the apartment letting you know how things work.
I very much enjoyed my stay here.
I'd highly recommend this place to anyone. The bed was super comfy, the kitchen had everything we could possibly need. The location was super convenient to Fremont where we spent the most time. Jordan was super personable and gave great recommendations. I don't have a bad thing to say
Jordan and Michelle were wonderful hosts with a great place to stay while in Seattle. Their basement apartment is plenty big and has everything you need. They go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable and have everything you need. Jordan was incredibly helpful in helping us navigate the neighborhood and find great places to eat. The posting is 100% accurate and their homemade honey from their backyard bees is delicious. The beds are comfortable and the place is clean and in great condition. I highly recommend staying with Jordan and Michelle when in Seattle.
The rave reviews everyone else has posted pretty much speak for themselves, but I'll add my three cents: Great location, welcoming hosts, comfortable accommodations. Excellent place to stay.
