Despite living in the middle of the city, we live in a very quiet neighborhood. Seattle's diverse Mt. Baker Neighborhood is north of Columbia City, 25 minute bus ride close to downtown Seattle and has its own light rail station Mt. Baker. The house is two blocks to a major street, where buses run every few minute to downtown ( Rainier ave), There is a big grocery store near by.

Although I did not get to spend much time talking with Beth, she was very accommodating and welcoming. She made sure I had everything that I needed and offered hot tea when she found out I lost my voice. It is exactly as described; the room was a perfect space to rest and refresh while in Seattle!
Beth was an incredibly warm host. She makes you feel like an honored guest! House is an easy walk to Light rail and quiet at the same time. The fresh roasted coffee was amazing, thanks so much!
This was very nice place to stay. It was enjoyable chatting with Beth. She is very generous and helpful. Very convenient location- easy walk to Columbia City and public transportation.
I really enjoyed my stay at Beth's place. It's very well connected to the public transport system and it's easy to get into downtown without a car. The neighbourhood is quiet and I felt safe all the time. Beth and her aunt are the perfect hosts, I was even given a tour around the neighbourhood by Beth's aunt! Thank you! And there is always fresh coffee in the morning and stuff for breakfast.
Loved staying here. Super warm and kind people that caring for the house, and very great location. Used the bus system a lot. Will try to book again if I stay in the area again.
Although I did not get to interact with Beth after our initial meeting, I very much enjoyed my short stay. The place was generally quiet and clean. There was tea/coffee and some food on the dining room table; however, I did not get any. I did appreciate the two bottles of water and peppermints that were waiting for me in my room. The wifi worked great since I had to do some schoolwork during my stay. The neighborhood seemed safe. I walked around in the evening to get dinner only a few minutes from the house. If taking the public transportation, it's only a short walk away. I definitely recommend Beth as a host and her house as a place to stay during your visit to Seattle.
I only was at Beth's place for the night, and because I showed up so late, didn't get to meet her. The room and house were very clean and quiet. The place is perfect for one person.
