The space at Jean's home exceeded my expectations. Jean and her family are gracious and helpful hosts.
The space has one bedroom, a lovely bathroom, and a reading and relaxation area. There is no television; a plus for me as I thoroughly enjoyed the quiet during what proved to be a hectic visit with family. There are outlets and connections for your computer use to view online programs.
Jean's home is in a beautiful neighborhood and she maintains a beautiful garden. Her home is very close to Lake Washington and Stanton Park. This area is a "must-see" for bird-watchers and nature lovers. There is a wonderful coffee house and small restaurant nearby. The specialty pizzas in the restaurant are delicious and reasonably priced. If you're a jogger, the neighborhood and park trails are the best.
Regarding using your cell phone: the guest space is a fully furnished basement/ lower level area. My Verizon LG 4G-LTE had poor reception in the guest rooms. I am told other cell phones have fared better.
This space, and Jean and her family, was an oasis for me. I highly recommend this guest home and living space located in a wonderful part of Seattle.
This is a lovely home in a great location. We didn't have time to explore as we were busy with other things but there were a few great neighborhoods to browse and the lake within a few blocks.
The space is very nice - and very quiet! A bedroom, a sitting room and a big, walk-in shower in the bath room. The bath was stocked with lotions, soaps and shampoo if you didn't bring your own.
No wireless wifi so bring a laptop you plug into if you want to be connected.
I visit Columbia City regularly and will definitely give Jean a call when I need a place to stay.
We had a great experience in Seattle. It was a very cute neighborhood that was close to public transportation and the lake. Jean was super sweet and gave us great tips about places to go and buses to take. They provided a fridge, tea kettle and a variety of tea (brownie points for honey ginger tea!).
It's stated in the amenities but the internet is connected via ethernet so make sure your laptop has the port. If you're running on a Macbook Pro or Air, you'll need an adapter.
Jean was very welcoming and accommodations were very nice. The room and bathroom were in a very nicely furnished basement that felt very private.
The neighborhood is very nice. Parking was very easy, and it is a nice walk to Columbia City.
We only stayed one night, as our visit to Seattle was very short, but we would definitely stay again if we visit Seattle.
