About this listing
Private room in small home with single Artist, in a great, central Seattle location.
It is a shoeless house. The bedroom is on the 2nd floor.
The bathroom is on the first floor and is shared with the host and other guests, if there are others.
Wi-Fi, street parking.
The listed room is most comfortable for 2 guests.
There is a foldout futon bed in this room for a third person, or as a second bed option, for $10/stay. The open futon does make the room a bit crowded. Please view photo!
If you have a third guest, and the room is available (there is the possibility that the other room is booked by another guest), I have a twin bed in the "sun room/laundry room" which is appropriate for a single guest. There is a $20/night charge for this extra room.
Wi-Fi, Kitchen access, Coffee and Teas
Interaction with Guests
I make myself available, and enjoy some conversation when it feels mutually appropriate. Guests are always free to come and go as they please.
There are several bus lines within 2 blocks of the house, making transportation to most parts of the city very easy. Easy access to downtown and anywhere in Seattle. Ten minute walk to 2 fun neighborhoods, Wallingford and Fremont, and an easy 1.5 mile walk to the University of Washington.
Near Woodland Park Zoo, Greenlake, Gas Works Park, Hiram Chittenden Locks, University of Washington and more!
I love showing off the city to guests when the opportunity lends itself, and offer a 2-4 hour driving tour that is great for learning your way around the city for future exploration or getting a broad overview of many of the wonderful spots that make Seattle so exciting and special.
Directions from SeaTac Airport:
Take the "Link," Light Rail to the last stop downtown - "Westlake." Exit to 3rd Ave and Pine St, and look for the #16 Bus going North (to Northgate).
Arrive Stone Way N & N 42nd St - 16 min (10 stops) (Previous stop is Stone Way N & N 40th St)
FYI - Though also convenient, the E-Line has only one less stop, and is a longer walk to the house.
Other Things to Note
Since I have two listings, the 2nd room could have another guest. We all share the single bathroom.
It's a shoeless house and you're welcome to use the refrigerator and kitchen.
Roger was a great Airbnb host and he enjoyed talking about Seattle and all the wonderful places to visit.
It was a pleasure staying at Roger's place. I was in Seattle for work and the location was ideal for me. I felt safe in the neighborhood throughout. The bed was comfortable and Roger stocked the bathroom with various amenities like towels, soap and shower gel. There's running warm water too! Apart from that, I didn't use much of the facilities available at the place, like the stove, fridge and laundry.
The only regret I have is that I didn't have much time to spend on sightseeing. Roger has prepared various maps and leaflets. He also even offered to provide a city tour. So when you have a chance, grab that opportunity! Thanks a lot for the hospitality, Roger!
Roger is the best airbnb host I've had to date. Was extremely friendly, helpful and inviting. Description was exactly as described, lots of good local advice. People like this make dealing with an absolute pleasure. 10/10
Roger is so considerate that he provides every detail before you ask. He cares about the feeling of guests. There is really nothing that I can complain.
Roger is a very friendly host and welcoming. He called me one day before and spent a lot of time to explain the house instructions very clearly. The house is in a quiet neighborhood and the neighbour is interesting. The room is a little bit small with an extra bed, but we didn't spend much time in the house, so it wasn't an issue.
Roger was there to greet us when we arrived - getting in contact with him before our stay was very easy. He showed us around the house and pointed out features for our use. And he made it clear that he was available if any questions arose during our stay. The house and our room were neat, clean and comfortable. He went out of his way to make the house cool during a Seattle heat wave. We are very pleased that we chose Roger's place and had the opportunity to meet and chat with him during our stay. It's a pleasure to recommend his house when visiting Seattle.
Roger made check-in easy and was available for all questions a guest might have in his two bedroom home in a very good location of Seattle where grocery shopping and restaurants are within easy walking distance and the connection to the interstate roads is not far either.
There are 2 bedrooms upstairs, one of which is often where the host sleeps. The one bathroom in the house is downstairs. The other upstairs bedroom is also very small and it can get very hot and stuffy during a summer heat wave which I experienced. Roger provides a fan and advises the door to be kept open, but at night that reduces the privacy. The low slanting roof does make it a bit of a challenge to use the desk without bumping your head in the bedroom I had.
Roger also allows guests access to the kitchen and living area. Sometimes he also has a guest in the small room just off the kitchen which only has a makeshift cover offering guests privacy in there but one has to be aware that working in the kitchen can disturb anyone in that space.
Overall, considering how expensive a Seattle visit can be, especially in the summer, I felt Roger offered good value for what I paid and would therefor recommend it to anyone else.
