About this listing
Ive owned this great condo for 4+ years now...and love every day I spend here. You will too! It is now home to me and my extraordinarily charming boyfriend Len. I am originally from Vermont and have worked at 3 of the major Shoe brands doing Apparel sportswear design since graduating from RISD in 2001. He is a California bay area transplant and bicycle fanatic , glad to have made it through his first Boston winter. He may well be a better cook even than I so youll be in GREAT hands!
The layout has an open living space with a roche bobois mahjong sofa (great for lounging around on over morning coffee ....or drinking wine and watching a movie and a noguchi coffee table as well as a few other fun pieces and great antiques...and lots and lots of really lovely plants!
youll feel right at home with a newly renovated bathroom w/rainshower head and a washer and dryer in the unit in case you need a quick load of laundry done. The kitchen is also newly renovated and is all stainless w/great fossilized granite counters...and We have plenty of cooking supplies if youd like to take advantage and whip yourself up a meal.
If you come during the warmer months you can take advantage of a treehouse feel off the back deck....or privacy on the gigantic roofdeck w/a chimnea to make a fun fire. or practice your hula hooping skills.
The apartment is a 12 min walk from both the Stonybrook and Jackson sq T stops on the boston metro orange line. And an 8 min walk from the last stop on the green line (E) Heath st stop. Its also a few minute walk from some of the most Raved about restaurants in Boston (Ten Tables and Tres Gatos) as well as quaint local spots , .pubs and coffee shops....There is a Whole Foods market a block away if you want to cook your own meals.
Designers Haven is on a dead end st in a part of town that does NOT require permitted street parking...so if you are driving into town you can easily park in the area for free!
Youll be staying in the private guestroom which has a very comfy queen size tempurpedic memory foam mattress with and down pillows.
We have two very sweet cats...Turtle and Froggy......they are extremly affectionate and will snuggle up with you at night if you want them to! They are indoor outdoor cats and so will most likely come and go as they please throughout your stay.
The price includes a tasty continental style breakfast with an assortment of fruit and possibly fresh baked scones and snacks for your breakfast/stay (i take requests). as well as hard boiled eggs, yogurt and granola and assorted nuts. I love to cook and am extremly open to any special requests. All other food you will have to arrange for yourself.
Price is for one person...or single occupancy. for double occupancy add $25. If you are looking for more space I rent the entire apartment out under the title Designers Haven II and youd have both my personal bedroom and the guest room as well as the Ligne Roset sofa in the living room to sleep up to 6 people!!!!
**Please be aware that my apartment is on the 3rd floor of the building and is a walk up. This is how I am able to have a private roofdeck...but it does mean that there are two flights of stairs to walk up**
Im pretty low key...so here are just a few:
• If you are a smoker I ask that you use either the back porch/back patio/or roofdeck.
• If you break/damage anything I will expect to be compensated to replace/fix the accident.
• Please let me know when youd like to host dinner parties...just an FYI will do!
About the Host, Becky

We live together in domestic harmony in a tiny adorable fishermans style bungalow here in Ballard, WA.
We just arrived in Seattle in January of 2015 so were still getting to know the city.
I travel quite a bit for work and for fun....so you may not catch me in Seattle on your stay....but if you do Ill gladly invite you out to any events/happenings that I know of going on. I do this because I love it... not for the money....and so you can be certain that If you are my guest I will treat you well. I only open my home to folks that I am truly excited to host.
I LOVE food....so you can bet that my restaurant recommendations may be your new favs....Seattle is a total foodie city!
Cant wait to meet you!
