Garden apt, fresh eggs n honey

Apartment - Entire home/apt · 4th Ave, Seattle, WA 98105, United States

The Space

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 toddler in the equation. We do our best to keep things quiet, but can't promise sound-proofed solitude. 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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • This is a lovely place and a good escape from the city. Roomy and spacious--there were two adults and two kids and we were very cozy and comfortable. Well equipped, clean, and enjoyable!

  • Jordan is very accommodating. My son and I arrived in Seattle when there was a cold snap. Since I'm new to the whole Air BandB gig, we were cold for a couple of days (Jordan was out of town). I finally thought that I should email to see if he has an extra space heater. He told me that the furnace must not have been working and told me how to turn it on and where to get an extra space heater.

    Then the carbon monoxide monitor went off. I realized it was probably due to old batteries because of the beeping pattern. Jordan had his neighbors bring me batteries and check in on me. When alerted to our problems, Jordan was very responsive and worked to solve our issues promptly. And the honey was delicious!

  • I had a very pleasant stay at Jordan & Michelle's place. Everything was as advertised. They were very hospitable people. The location was very convenient being close to many bus stops and the university way. I would recommend their place for anyone visiting Seattle.

  • We had a good time. Everything was fine and clean. The bed is comfy and the kitchen a dream (you can cook a really dinner. There is everything you need incl. basics e.g. herbs, salt, pepper, oil etc.)

    It's also in a safe area and very close to a couple of bus stops.

  • This in-law studio was perfect for our family of three. It was very large, clean and comfortable and had a huge, fully equipped kitchen. It is very centrally located and right off I-5 and had easy street parking. The hosts were lovely and even helped us out of a pinch by lending us a power cord for our laptop. Our six year old really enjoyed the company of the four year old that lived upstairs. Will definitely stay here again!

  • We only booked Jordan and Michelle's place for the first four nights of our trip, figuring we'd wing the rest. Boy, did we make a mistake when we learned it was booked for the rest of our trip and we wanted to stay put. Our family of 3 was so comfortable in this basement suite. We had plenty of space, loved the dressing room area where we could unpack and hang all our damp clothes after a wet day outside, etc. We also liked having the fold-open bed in the same room as the queen bed.
    Something nice, and that we haven't seen with typical (website hidden) condo-like bookings is that they are willing to leave basic condiments in the fridge and cupboard from other guests (and some they provide, like fresh-ground coffee, tea, honey from their bees, etc.). It made cooking a meal at home so much easier, and cheaper -- greatly appreciated.
    There were times during our trip that I wished we could go home and sit in front of a fire and look out the window (neither possible in this suite), but the location was so convenient, the Schwartz' so friendly and last, but not least, our daughter loved playing with their son. Built-in playmates make vacations even better.

  • Eggs 'n honey were great! The place was clean, cozy, and well located. Jordan and family were welcoming and helpful. I highly recommend staying here.

    September 2013
  • The space was very clean and comfortable. The honey was amazing! Thank you ! As noted in earlier posts don't plan on sleeping in - as the pitter patter of big and little feet do get going early! Everything you need is there for your use. The location was great for the Om Center - easy walk. Great gratitude for fresh eggs and amazing honey.

  • Great location, awesome space (everything you need and very clean), but you will not sleep in. Plan on waking up by 7am.

  • Jordan and Michelle were gracious and very thoughtful hosts. Their son was adorable and my dog loved him. The gift of honey and eggs was a lovely personal touch...and delicious. The apartment was private, comfortable, immaculate and stocked with many convenient items, including ear plugs in case the happy child sounds were early and you wanted to sleep in (very thoughtful). Location was quiet, easy access to I-5 and convenient to Wallingford and U District local spots. Wi-Fi was reliable for work and catching up on Netflix viewing. I would definitely recommend for a comfortable home away from home.
