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.
The purpose of my trip was to explore as Seattle as much as possible by foot, (or in our case, skateboards). The location of Saul and Megan's place was prime. We ran into Megan after the first night and was comforted by her kindness. She suggested some great places to check out around town and made us feel super welcome.
Although the location was a little bit frustrating to figure out after a long day (I arrived around midnight), I was very pleased with the room. It was completed separated from the main area and was quiet and private, very clean and had it own separate thermostat which i appreciated greatly. Megan and Saul, were very gracious and gave me space.
We had a great stay at Megan's & Saul's apartment.
The house is located perfectly close to Capitol Hill.
The hosts were super kind and we would love to pay them a visit soon again.
Megan and Saul were very communicative right from the start, and accommodated me and my friend starting on New Year's Day. Though Saul had told us ahead of time that they were hosting a party the night before, the place was ready and room spotless for us by the time we arrived (which was earlier than check-in time, and still they were completely gracious!)
We were a little modest with the heater at first (the room has its own thermostat so you can adjust to your liking), though Megan said we were welcome to crank it. We eventually did because it didn't feel like warm air until the dial turned past 80, so I guess the numbers are arbitrary? Once we figured that out, the room was warm and comfortable for the rest of our stay.
Major bonus points for the jar of vitamin C on the kitchen counter (in addition to the breakfast items)--really felt that saved us from coming down with something during our vacation after a hectic holiday season!
Our stay with Megan and Saul was excellent. They were friendly and inviting and made us feel at home during the three days we spent in Seattle. The place was clean and comfortable, just as advertised. We highly recommend them as hosts!
Me and my boyfriend payed a ten day visit to Seattle, to visit some folks there! Everything went super smooth when we arrived. There was always breakfast things that we could eat from. We run on very different hours, so we did'nt get to see each other very often. But that was cool, with our own little somewhat closed of part of the house! Cool neighborhood!
All in all, a very good stay! If you're thinking about booking, do!
I recommend this place.
Saul & Megan were amazing and gracious hosts. From the minute my girlfriend and I arrived, they went the extra mile to make our stay comfortable, and our trip to Seattle excellent; from helping us find parking in the rain at 12:30 in the morning, to the thoughtfully placed bottle of water in the room.
The room and house really are an oasis. The house is located near a number of restaurants, bars, and shops in Capitol Hill, yet the seclusion of the downstairs bedroom is a good counterpoint to the hustle and bustle just a few streets away.
Our trip as a whole was excellent, and where we stayed was a big part of that. Would definitely stay again!
[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.
