Double bed in a pet and smoke free house with a shared bath is warm, cozy, quiet and one block to the bus line to downtown. In Fremont, a hip and interesting neighborhood to explore. Wi-fi, access to kitchen, laundry, computer and living room.
Small, windowless, dark, warm, quiet room with a fairly new Sealy mattress double bed, nothing fancy, but perfect for the traveler on the go. Roomy closet. Radiant heat floors. Pet-free. Wi-fi available. Smoke-free. Parking on the street never a problem. Ten-minute walk to downtown Fremont, one block to the bus. No private bath, but an additional bathroom upstairs, so never a line. The room, as described earlier, is very warm -- most sleep with the fan on especially in the summer. Towels, robes, water glasses provided. My husband and myself will make your stay comfortable.
We do require check-in by 10:00 p.m.
My husband needs the shared bathroom on weekday mornings from 7:00 a.m. to 7:15 a.m.
Feel free to use the laundry facilities, kitchen and dining area and a downstairs "library" has a laptop and desk you are welcome to use. Wifi is "Dennis McCabe's guest network" and requires no password.
Interaction with Guests
One or both of us will be staying in the house while you are here, and we enjoy meeting guests. I operate a business next door (Crow's Wing Spa) and work there Tuesdays through Saturdays, and my husband's day job repairing lab equipment at medical facilities is Monday through Friday. On weekends Dennis makes KILLER expresso drinks if you happen to be ready for one when he's at the machine. We are minimally invasive, curious about you but definitely not nosy. Easy going would be a fair evaluation of our style as hosts.
Some don't-miss aspects of Fremont: Theo's, the nation's only bean-to-bar organic, free trade chocolate factory, call to reserve spots on an unforgettable tour. Lots of options for food including, Mexican, Thai, Indian, Japanese and more. Coffee shops of course, this is Seattle! We are one block from the ship canal with picnic benches. A new distillery with a tasting room just opened up, and a very happening place with 32 hard ciders on tap. Very pedestrian friendly, Fremont will surprise the casual walker with a rocket, a statue of Lenin, a larger-than-life troll under the bridge, ivy dinosaurs and cement people waiting for a bus. And clowns dancing.
The bus stop with routes to downtown (about a 25 minute ride depending on the time of day) is one long block down the hill. If you have a specific destination and are wondering, check out (website hidden)
To get here from the airport you take a light rail (about 35 minutes) to downtown, then transfer to a bus.
Other Things to Note
Just so you won't be surprised or offended, I'm a Nichiren Buddhist and I chant out loud (at a conversational volume) in the living room in the morning and evening, but you are of course not required to restrict your activities or noise level in the least. The guest room is downstairs and the chanting is upstairs and won't generally be audible from there except possibly Tuesday through Friday from 7:00 to 9:00 a.m., when friends occasionally join me to chant. Again, you can ignore me (or us) completely on terms of using the kitchen/dining area.
Please shower before soaking in the tub
Please enjoy your meals in the kitchen/dining area
Need to respect the recycle bins
Shoes off at the door
No smoking indoors or out
Check-in by 10:00 p.m. (no curfew once you've dropped off your stuff)
We really enjoy the days in Seattle, and Kay did a great job. They are nice and jovial, and always willing to help. The room is not big but it has everything we need. The location is quiet and beautiful, love it so much!
Kay was extremely welcoming and helpful. Everything was easy and their home was great. They also gave me some great recommendations on places in the area. The location could not have been better. Thanks again for everything!
It was such a pleasure to stay at Kay's place. They are a adorable wonderful couple and their house is just super clean, fitted with state of the art amenities. Kay is just always there to help with anything. Extremely warm and comfortable stay.
We really enjoyed our time with Kay in Fremont, we felt very welcome in their beautiful home. The room was quite small as you can see in the pictures but it was perfect for us, it can get a little warm but the ceiling fan kept us cool. Dark and quiet for some deep sleep! The bathroom was amazing, soak tub and a great shower. The location is perfect for Fremont, only a short walk to all the awesome bars and shops. This is our first time using air bnb and we loved it.
We totally enjoyed staying at Kay and Dennis' house. We're Airbnb hosts too and had rented out our house and needed a place to stay nearby. Their house and location were perfect: in Fremont, with a nice bed to sleep in and an awesome bathroom to use. Kay and Dennis are very generous and warm people and it's nice to know they're neighbors! We had a great time.
Such a lovely home in a beautiful and convenient neighborhood. Kay and Dennis were delightful hosts and very accommodating of our rather irregular schedule. I have to say the soaking tub and rain shower are definite perks. Would happily stay here again!
