The Space

Private bedroom and bathroom in updated 1914 craftsman house with modern furnishings. The house is 1500 sq ft with beautiful box beam ceilings and leaded glass windows. The room is on the main floor of the house with private bathroom nearby. There is central heat and air conditioning, so you will keep cool in the summer.

Guest Access

The main floor kitchen, living areas and TV room (50" TV) are shared with me. You are also welcome to relax on the front porch or back deck.

My bed and bath are located on the second level, so no guests upstairs, please.

Interaction with Guests

My interaction with guests depends on the guest and my schedule during that time. I may be home making breakfast or cooking pies, hosting a Sangria party on the deck (you're welcome to join) or I may be out of the house busy with activities. I usually try to make myself available to guests on their first day to show them around, answer questions and suggest activities. Please let me know if you are looking to share meals, need an itinerary or prefer to be left alone and I'll do my best to accommodate.

The Neighborhood

Wallingford is one of Seattle's great neighborhoods. The area is centrally located, but is relatively quiet with mostly single family housing (making parking easier than other areas). The neighborhood is very walkable with access to grocery store, bars, restaurants, movies, parks and anything else you could possibly want.

Getting around

As mentioned above, there is plenty to walk to in the neighborhood. The house is also walking to U-district & Greenlake, easy bus access to Downtown #16 & Ballard #44 & Fremont.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Private bath with good hot and cold water pressure and a good shower head. Private bedroom with adequate space for hanging clothes in closet and lots of drawers in a chest plus bedside stand. Some street noise but didn't bother me at all. Owner allowed shared access to all rooms downstairs which included kitchen, dining area, living room, another sitting area and a tv room. TV uses Rokur which includes Netflix. If have sunny weather there is a very nice large deck in the backyard. Guests with limited mobility, there are ten steps or so up from the sidewalk without a handrail to the front door. Very pleasant and considerate host. Location is within walking distance of the Wallingford shopping area on 45th st. which has a grocery, drug store, coffee houses and selection of ethnic restaurants. The cat is friendly but not pushy. I would definitely stay here again.

  • Joanna's house is a charming Craftsman. The bedroom and bathroom was spacious and well appointed. The location was handy - just a short walk to shops and groceries - and a bus that took me to the University and a shopping mall. Joanna was gracious and friendly and her cat, Pepi, was sweet. I can highly recommend her as a host. I love Seattle!

  • Staying in Joanna's home was heaven! I relocated to WA and was a guest for almost a month while I started work and figured out where I was going to live. Joanna could not have been more gracious and friendly. Her home is beautiful, comfortable and in a great location. Pepi the kitty is wonderful too! I loved staying there and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for terrific accommodations in the Seattle area.

  • Joanna is a gracious host who made me feel welcome in her home. The bedroom and bathroom are attractive, clean, and well-appointed (fantastic Egyptian cotton towels and linens). Great neighborhood location within walking distance of a grocery store and coffee shops. Highly recommended!

  • Joanna is a wonderfully bright and aware host. She has good information, and her home is lovely and functional. It was a respite for me, and I appreciated the relaxed atmosphere and private bath next to the bedroom. There's a lovely back patio too! Pepi is a really good cat, SO sweet. Thank you, Joanna!

  • Our stay with Joanna was just perfect for us. Location was great and near our family in Seattle. The accommodations were more than adequate and comfortable. Enjoyed it very much. I'd recommend staying there again and again. Thank you Joanna.

  • We had a wonderful time when we stayed with Joanna. To busy with our son, daughter-in-law and grandson, Tommy, to spend any amount of time at the house.. We're able to share some wine and relaxed in Joanna" s great backyard/deck one night' which was lovely. Will definitely stay here again!

  • Our first AirBnb experience was with Joanna and Pepinot in Seattle. The room we rented was lovely including own private bath room with soft towels and toiletries. She offered us coffee & tea, some fresh fruit and eggs. Everything was spotless and Joanna gave us good tips for Seattle. Joanna treated us on amazing homemade peanut butter cookies (I'd love the recipe) our second evening in. We enjoyed her Netflix while recovering from our jet lag. We also noticed she also had some board games in the living room, also ones we packed with us :) Conclusion: clean house & room, good location, free parking, lovely host. We can recommend this room to anyone who is planning to visit Seattle.

  • My girlfriend Frances and I stayed for 1 week. Joanna was a great host, and Pepinot was very sweet too! The house was more beautiful in person than in the photos here and so comfortable, with plenty of room for eating, cooking or working. We did not experience noise problems, though the floorboards were creaky. The closet was a bit small, but there was a big chest of drawers available. Proximity to Tangletown and Wallingford stores, easy street parking around the corner, and the hot tub were plusses!
