The Space

Welcome to Seattle!


You will find a cozy and quiet private room and bath with a separate basement entrance just steps from Lake Union. A comfortable queen bed, WIFI, TV/Movies, washer-dryer access, microwave, mini-fridge and coffee maker make this a small home away from home. Relax in a serene setting, opening into a beautiful back garden with a BBQ, outdoor fireplace, dining area, and plenty of nooks to read and restore.


We are one block from Lake Union in the Eastlake neighborhood; close to UW, Capitol Hill, Amazon, and downtown Seattle. Buses here run about every 15 minutes and will take you to all major city attractions. Street parking is also available with our guest pass. A short 3 block stroll will bring you to restaurants ranging from pizza to local organic, coffee shops, specialty grocery stores, Yoga, massage, and hair/nail salons.


The neighborhood is an urban mix of old craftsman homes, houseboats, and modern architecture with a handful of water-front pocket parks - friendly and safe in a convenient location. Walk/run/bike the Cheshiahud Loop Trail - a 6-mile loop around Lake Union, passing Gasworks Park and the eclectic Fremont neighborhood. Also close is the Burke Gilman Trail - a lovely paved pedestrian/bike trail winding around Lake Washington 27 miles, ending at Marymoor Park. You will also be within walking distance to kayak rentals, boat tours, and float planes to the San Juan Islands.


Our home and rental are dog friendly - we have a great rescue dog who enjoys her cat buddies, but looks forward to dog visitors. The back yard is completely fenced, and dog bed, leash, and bowls are provided. We can also direct you to several local off-leash dog parks. If you have a swimming dog, lake access is right around the corner.


We live upstairs and are generally quiet folks, (except during soccer matches!!) but you will hear the hardwood floors as well as normal house sounds. We do enjoy meeting new people, and a bit o' socializing, but will leave you to yourselves if you prefer. If you have booked 7 or more days, we will need access to the washer/dryer once a week at your convenience.

This residence welcomes ALL - PFLAG spoken here.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • We had a great time staying at Dee and Adam's place! The accommodations were wonderful, with the privacy of a hotel but the comforts of home. The guestroom is downstairs and there is a lovely garden right outside - great for relaxing and enjoying a meal outdoors.

    Dee and Adam were so very nice - we enjoyed meeting them along with their dog, Hershey!

  • Oh my goodness - our stay at Dee and Adam's was truly fabulous. We couldn't have asked for a better home base in Seattle. :)

    Unlike other Airbnb stays, this room was made with a guests needs in mind. At each turn there was a pleasant, thoughtful surprise that made out trip easier. The little things, like makeup remover (email hidden), laundry soap, and outdoor recliners, made me feel like I was at home, or at least at the home of a whimsical, warm aunt.

    Eastlake is quieter - a hilly, safe refuge outside of the city center. It was nice to come back to after a long day of touring. We would definitely stay again - no doubt!

  • This was my first experience with AirBNB... And it was wonderful!! Dee & Adam were great! They were always available if I had any questions & so helpful with ideas of things to do. The room was just what I expected. It was clean & cozy . I loved the private garden right outside my door. It was great to come "home" after a day of fishing on the Sound, get cleaned up & relax in the garden. I would highly recommend this home!!!

  • Dee and Adam had such a cute spot. The private room was clean and tidy, and our hosts were super warm and welcoming. Location was literally just a short few steps to Lake Union, where we got amazing views of the lake.

  • Dee and Adam were very accommodating with my stay. They communicated with me before we arrived and the room was in top-top shape despite a guest being in there the day before us.

  • I had a wonderful stay with Dee & Adam. They responded quickly to my last-minute inquiry and communicated throughout the next day. Dee & Adam are a lovely couple who were very accommodating and made sure I had everything I needed. They also had excellent recommendations for restaurants to try in the Eastlake and South of Lake Union neighborhoods. The room is very cozy and clean with private access through their beautiful backyard. I really enjoyed being able to just throw on my running shoes and be just steps away from stunning lake and skyline views. I would highly recommend staying at this relaxing place and would certainly stay here again when I one day return to Seattle.

  • It's a cozy house located in a lovely neighbourhood. It's well equipped with high privacy as you have your own entrance. Dee and Adam are nice and helpful. I would definitely recommend it to the others.

    April 2014
  • Dee and Adam offer a lovely, clean, cozy and private little getaway! I totally enjoyed my stay with them. Dee is a gracious host and thinks of the little things that make a difference. She was extremely helpful with any questions I had regarding transportation and local restaurants and sites. Travelers have their very own entrance and garden hideaway at Dee's and Adams.

We are Adam & Doreen and Hershey the dog. A native Seattleite and a Geordie from Newcastle, England, we welcome you to our fabulous city and humble abode. We both love to travel, exploring the "back roads", farmers markets, places we've never been, hikes with our (best ever) dog, sailing, snow-shoeing, and all manner of adventure. Some of our favorite travels have been to Yorkshire, London, Paris, the Dingle Peninsula, Oahu, Santibel Island, and most recently, a fantastic road trip through the California Redwoods. Adam is a computer whiz, working in CAD design and nuts for soccer, baseball & sailing. I'm in the mental health sector and have a serious attachment to my camera, shooting pictures as much as possible. In between work and travel, we also tend our city garden of flowers, vegetables and for the first time this year, grapes. We're both easy-going, like to meet new people, non-smokers. Loving the Northwest, we can supply you with all manner of information on tourist sites including museums, parks, tours, day trips, kayak rentals, restaurants and pubs. I'm also a non-drinker, friend of Bill W, but Adam likes a Newcastle Brown Ale now and again, and of course talking soccer. We look forward to having you share our little piece of city oasis. Cheers!
