The Space

We have a garden apartment in the lower floor of our house located in Madison Valley. We are 15 minutes to downtown on the 11 or 8 lines -2 blocks from the Arboretum and a super market, and close to Madison Beach and the University of Washington. The apartment is well furnished, has a full kitchen and deck, 2 bedrooms (one queen bed and one twin bed) and bathroom. It sleeps 3. WiFi is provided. There is ample on-street parking right in front.

For your privacy the unit has a separate entrance and address: 2707 E. Thomas Street (this address may be used for mail and package delivery). I have lived in the building for 22 years, and I would be happy to give you a local perspective on sightseeing or dining in the neighborhood during your stay. This ground floor unit has very easy access. It is a spacious, apartment (800 square feet) located in the heart of Madison Valley. The location is great.

Transportation:
The best way with public transport from the airport (SeaTac) is via Link light rail ($2.50) to Mount Baker station. From Mount Baker station, walk across the street (Rainer Ave) and catch the 8 bus ($2.25). Take the 8 bus to the East John Street stop and then walk up the hill one block to 27th Ave East and then one block north to East Thomas Street. The entire trip from plane to door takes about an hour
Seattle has Car2Go cars. This is a good addition to public transportation for those without a car or rental of their own. There is a registration process (license, etc.) and fee ($35). Once this is done (several days for the license check), the Car2Go cars are available. There is almost always one parked within 5 minutes walking of here. Car2Go has an internet site and smartphone apps used for locating (and reserving) cars.
Montlake Bicycle rents all types of bicycles for various periods. The average first day cost is around $40. Please see their internet site for rental details.

  • Ron was great and his apartment truly felt like a home away from home. The location is so perfect, it is a quick bus ride into the downtown area and an even quicker drive. Ron greeted my friend and I kindly and gave us some great tips on how to get around using the public transit system. I will definitely be on the lookout for his apartment during my next visit to Seattle!

  • Ron was a great host to my friends and I. I met him right when I was checking out and he was very kind to us. He is very easy to communicate with and friendly. I would book again with Ron if I ever come back to Seattle.

  • We were quite satisfied with the apartment - its quiet and interesting neighborhood,walking distance to the park, Japanese garden, cafes, and even a nursery. Convenient for attending our niece's graduation at the University of Washington as well as for going to downtown. This apartment has everything a traveler needs. Ron is a very responsible and responsive host.

  • House is in a very quiet neighborhood and was extremely convenient for going to Seattle Center, food stores, and a nice breakfast bakery 3 blocks away. If we ever are back in Seattle with just my immediate family (3 persons) we will absolutely use Ron's BnB again.
    This BnB is actually just the 1st B - host DOSE NOT PROVIDE BREAKFAST. There is a very complete kitchen provided. Also, please note that this really is only for THREE people. The host provides an air mattress for the 4th but there really is no space to put the mattress that gives that person any privacy - putting it in the living room turned out to be inconvenient for all since we had to walk past it on the way to the only bathroom.

  • Very nice unit in a great location with a gracious host. Highly recommended.

    May 2014
  • Ron´s garden apartment is a nice place in a safe neighborhood in beautiful Madison Valley. The apartment is well equipped with all the necessities you need. Downtown Seattle can easily be reached by public transport. The location is reasonable priced and I can recommend it anytime.
