About this listing
. My home has a fabulous Puget Sound view and is within walking distance of the outstanding, waterfront, Lincoln Park and the Fauntleroy Ferry (10 min. walk or 2 min drive), as well as several wonderful restaurants and a bakery. By car, downtown Seattle is 15 minutes and by C bus 25 minutes direct. The bus stop is 1-½ blocks from my house and runs every 15 minutes. The airport is just 20 minutes away. There is a bus that runs from the airport to Westwood Village - 5 minutes from my house and I can pick you up there if you don't have a car.
Your roomy ground level suite has it's own private entrance. The L shaped suite includes a private bathroom with extra large shower, bed part of the L has 2 twin beds ( they can be pushed together), closet space and dresser, sitting room part of the L has comfy leather stuffed chair, table/desk, open storage unit and a microwave, toaster, coffee maker with included coffee and tea, French Press, auto hot water pot, blender, and small refrigerator. I provide coffee, teas, milk, fruit, yogurt, cereals, bread, jam, to get you started on breakfast. I also bring down filtered water as needed. The tap water is fine but chlorinated.
There's a hairdryer in the bathroom as well as fresh towels, extra toilet paper, shampoo etc in the bathroom cupboard.
There is also a TV hooked up with Comcast just for you in your room, wifi, and street parking with my permit.
The room does have low ceilings, 6 1/2', so keep that in mind but no one has had a problem to date. There are also 2 comfy stuffed lounge chairs outdoors on my common area deck which has a fabulous water view if you are inclined to spend a morning or afternoon at home relaxing with a good book. The covered entrance to your room has a comfy chair and small table for coffee outside in case of rain preventing the outside lounge chairs.
Nearby Lincoln Park is a wonderful recreational area. Excellent for walking, cycling, or running along the waterfront promenade There is an outstanding outdoor saltwater pool there open May 31-Labor Day, tennis courts, and walking trails through the woods.
You can also take the nearby ferry, to Vashon Island and the Olympic Peninsula or take the 1-hour round trip for stunning views and enjoyment.
West Seattle downtown, a 10 min drive, is charming as well and has many restaurants as does the famous Alki Beach area, a 15-minute drive along the waterfront.
One block away from my home is a local favorite restaurant, Endolyne Joe's, which is open for all meals, as well as the Original Bakery where coffee and baked treats await your morning pleasure. Across the street is a good Mexican Restaurant. There is also a shopping center - Westwood Village a 5 min drive, also on the C bus line where there are restaurants, grocery store and various shops.
I love my neighborhood and it's close proximity to all the things I enjoy... good food, beautiful nature and recreation. I also love traveling, hosting guests and hearing your travel stories.
There is free parking on the street but be sure to put the overnight parking permit I provide on your rear view mirror . Also, please park right in front of my house, not in front of my neighbors homes, they need their own parking spaces.
Interaction with Guests
I'm often outside on the deck working on the computer or reading and enjoy guests coming up and visiting. I love hearing about their daily adventures around Seattle.
The nature here is beautiful with all the trees, the sea and mountains beyond. I often see eagles fly overhead and seals and otters at Lincoln Park. The neighborhood is quiet and safe with friendly helpful people.
The C bus line is 1 -1/2 blocks from my house and comes every 15 minutes. It goes through downtown West Seattle and continues on to downtown Seattle, about 25 minutes. The other direction it goes to Westwood Village shopping center - 5 min. You can also transfer to a bus that takes you past the Mariners Stadium. Or another that goes to the airport.
The ferry, a 3 min drive, can take you quickly over to Vashon Island and the peninsula.
As much as I love children and pets I am asking that you bring no young children or pets to my home. No unregistered guests may stay as well. I'm also asking that there be no smoking inside and please no candle burning. No parties or loud noise please, this is a quiet neighborhood and I keep my home very clean for guests
