About this listing
You are welcome to use our kitchen for any meals - we provide breakfast fixings and coffee/tea.
We welcome you to stay in a modern townhouse on 15th Avenue right in the heart of Capitol Hill. There are dozens of restaurants and shops within walking distance, including multiple ice cream parlors and a local food co-op. Direct buses to downtown are a half-block away, although walking only takes about 20 minutes and is sometimes faster.
This bedroom has a queen bed and private bath (including tub) and is on the 1st floor of a 3-story townhouse. Your window looks out onto the patio and you will be right next to the patio access. The townhouse is set back from the main street, so it is remarkably quiet for the urban location.
The kitchen, dining and living rooms are on the second floor. Enjoy our gas fireplace and peek-a-boo view of the Space Needle. Our kitchen, including coffee/tea and simple breakfast fixings, is available for your use.
We have a reasonable collection of good board games that you can play either with or without us.
There is street parking available and you should be able to find a spot within a couple of blocks of our place. We can lend you a guest parking pass which will allow your car to stay in a 2-hour parking spot for up to 72 hours.
This space is not handicap-accessible, and there is a steep driveway which would be difficult for someone who requires a cane or other walking assistance.
Our neighborhood and our home are a queer-friendly and trans* safe space.
Please remove your shoes in the entry foyer and do not smoke inside. Please be respectful of our neighbors and keep noise outside to a minimum after 10pm.
This is your ground floor room with queen bed, private bath and easy access to the back patio.
We felt very welcomed by Meg and Saul, and the listing was perfectly described. It was a wonderful stay in a great part of Seattle, and was very walkable and private. We would happily stay here again.
We were early, but Mgan provided a code to get into the house. The room was as described, a full bedroom en suite bathroom. The neighborhood is perfect...a juice bar one block away for my husband and 7/11 for my coffee. We walked most of the time to Pikes Market, but the bus #10 stops right by the house and goes straight into town.
Our stay was extremely comfortable. The hosts were around occasionally, but we did not see them often. And when we did, they were very friendly. The location is prime! We were really close to great eating (ramen, coffee shops, and Molly Moon's ice cream - you gotta try the Balsamic Strawberry flavor). Also, the great plus about this place is that they provide free continental breakfast in the morning (hard-boiled eggs, organic cereal, bread and snacks). This saved us some $$ since we didn't have to buy breakfast. Thank you for a lovely stay!
This was the perfect location to see Seattle. It was very close to multiple bus lines and wonderful restaurants. The room was very comfortable and our hosts were extremely helpful.
Megan and Saul were both extremely welcoming and kind. The room and bathroom were both clean on arrival, exactly as described. The breakfast in the morning was a wonderful touch. I would definitely stay with them again.
Megan and Saul were great hosts - they were helpful and available and left us nice handwritten notes. The keyless entry system was super convenient, and the trip (our first airbnb!) went smoothly.
The neighborhood was a fun place to stay, with tons of restaurants and personality. We went downtown every day we were there - walking is totally doable and was a good way to see the city but we also took the bus from the convenient stop across the street.
The room was perfect, very comfortable and clean. It has a great view of the charming backyard!
Our experience in Seattle was spectacular. As first-time visitors, my wife and I were spent most of our time out and about exploring the city. Megan was super helpful when we arrived, made us feel welcomed, and was willing to accommodate our slightly early arrival. They left snacks on the counter for us and the room was clean and tidy. The room really did feel like we were at home. We were glad that we stayed in an eclectic neighborhood with friendly local residents instead of a corporate hotel. We were a bit surprised at how easy Seattle is to get around. Perhaps this is because the bus stop to take us directly downtown was about 1 minute away!!! So convenient!! Overall, this stay was PERFECT for our first experience in Seattle!
About the Host, Megan And Saul
[Megan] I've been traveling since I was young, with my NYC family and then to study abroad in Scotland, Russia, and Norway. Other recent trips have been in Africa (the Seychelles, Uganda, Namibia and South Africa), China, Italy/Corsica and Malaysia. Even though I'm a civil engineer who loves cities, I'm strangely drawn to remote islands - the Orkneys, the non-touristy Greek ones like Folegandros, or even just the little islands in Lake Bunyoni. This summer I've gotten to explore more of the Pacific Northwest - from Bellingham to down the Oregon Coast and the California redwoods.
My best travel experiences have been with great hosts, and to pay that back I would love to provide a comfortable home-like experience for our guests, including access to a fully-stocked kitchen, a private bathroom, and a bedside table.
[Saul] I never traveled far from Chicagoland as a kid but have gradually been opening up to it since I moved to Seattle in 1998. My first overseas trip was with Megan to Iceland when we first met, and last year we visited Europe (London, Amsterdam & Copenhagen). I would love to visit Japan someday.
I enjoy meeting new people and sharing life experiences. Megan and I stayed with friends in London on our last trip abroad and I realized that's the way I want to travel from now on. It's more personal and you can discover local hidden gems that you might otherwise miss.
