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 had some good days in Seattle! Capitol hill is a perfect place to live when exploring the city. You do all the touristy things downtown at daytime. And explore the awesome capitol hill nightlife in the evening. Megan and Saul were exelent hosts. The room was private, nice and tidy. We felt very welcome in their home!
We had a great time visiting Seattle and staying at Megan and Saul's cozy home. Everything was exactly as described in the listing. Megan and Saul were very nice and friendly. The room was very clean, coffee and breakfast fixings were provided, and the bed was comfortable. The location was ideal; super close to restaurants, bus stops, and grocery. We would stay at Megan and Saul's home again. Thank you!
Cozy, comfortable and efficient. Very nice experience. Megan and Saul were great hosts, provided keyless entry, and generously offered coffee, tea, snacks and light breakfast fare. Megan left a detailed note and some maps for us when we arrived. The location is perfect, near buses and some grocery stores. And they provided some local insights about neighborhoods and the Seattle scene!
Megan and Saul were excellent hosts. Saul was helpful from the time I made the reservation, answering all of my questions. Megan and Saul were also very welcoming and friendly when my girlfriend and I arrived at their house, letting us know all of their favorite places to visit and eat.
Their house was very conveniently located in Capitol Hill and close to a lot of really cool places. The room was excellent, roomy, clean, and had all the amenities.
I highly recommend Megan and Saul for whenever you're in Seattle
It's just like they say 'a comfy private oasis on Capitol Hill'! Room, bath and the entire home were clean and spacious. The neighborhood is quiet and friendly but still near to numerous bars, clubs and restaurants in walking distance. Megan and Saul had lots of good insights for Seattle and Capitol Hill in particular. We can strongly recommend this place and its fun and sweet hosts.
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.
