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.
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.
We had a lovely stay at Megan and Saul's home in Capitol Hill. The keyless entry was a breeze and we were greeted by a hand-written note with information, instructions, and cell phone numbers of our hosts. The room was clean and inviting, and the location can't be beat--we were able to travel easily around the city by bus, Pronto and on foot. While we didn't get to interact with our hosts while in Seattle, Saul was extremely responsive and helpful via text. We highly recommend Megan and Saul's home!
An amazing room with the warmest and nicest hosts. Do yourself a favor and stay at this place!! You won't regret it!
Megan and Saul were amazing hosts! We had a great time visiting and chatting with them and they were kind enough to speak with us about our plans in Seattle and give us tips on great restaurants to check out in the neighborhood, which we did- they have great taste! They had maps available for our use, plenty of snacks, extra toiletries available, and everything was immaculate! We were very comfortable in the room downstairs, which was very quiet. We had a great first airbnb experience and highly recommend Megan and Saul to others!
Megan and Saul were great hosts. They were there to greet us and made sure we had everything we needed. The room itself is great! It has a private bathroom and shower which made our stay even better and more private. The room is situated on the 1st floor and our hosts were on the 3rd so we had plenty of privacy. The room was spacious and clean and they provided us with anything you could think of, they even had a container of disposable ear plugs. We would stay here again and if we return to Seattle we'll seek this place out for sure. It's a steal price wise because the room is great and the location can't be beat!! It's in Capitol Hill and you can walk to a ton of restaurants, pike place market, bars, a small movie theater, really anything. Love this place and loved Megan and Saul! So yourself a favor and stay here! Side note -- the bed in this room is the most comfortable mattress you'll ever sleep on! Guaranteed!
We had a great experience staying at Megan and Saul's. They were very welcoming and accomodating, they made logistics a breeze, and our room was private and comfortable with a great bed. We look forward to staying there again!
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.
Poco Wine Room is just around the corner (for those moments when it's raining too hard for a long stroll). It has a full bar, great wine, and a cozy non-bar-like menu.
The closest and easiest Chinese food around. For take-out or eat-in. We find ourselves here quite often on rainy (or lazy) days. There's a bakery too, but that part is best avoided!
Our nearest fine dining restaurant, with small and large flavorful dishes and full bar.
Just one block away is the local food co-op! All the usual things you'd find at a natural food store, plus a coffee bar and a deli with lots of healthy prepared food.
The closest and coziest pizza joint - for eat-in or take-out.
Trader Joe's grocery and liquor store
Several guests have really enjoyed dinner at Marjorie. It has a really varied menu, but so nicely done we've had guests go two days in a row!
The Elysian is an airy and open pub with better-than-usual pub food (with good veggie options, especially the black bean burger) and (since it's a brewery) tons of beers on tap. Cocktail menu as well.
Skillet is an upscale diner. They take the basic dinner food and make it rather sinful. Great brunch, dinners, and desserts (though less of an option if you're watching calories or not eating meat).
Higher-end mexican food in a nice setting. There's sometimes a long wait here on weekend nights. Really good sangria!
If you want a treat, Molly Moon's ice cream is just delicious.
Popular brunch spot (for good reason) that's good for all meals. There's a great base menu but always an additional special cuisine on offer.
A 15-minute walk, Liberty has superb cocktails (for gin drinkers, the 'Point of No Return' is highly recommended). They also have a good sushi menu (though it doesn't look at all like a sushi place).
Volunteer Park has outdoor events in the summer, and the Asian Art Museum all year. The Water Tower accessible from 14th Avenue has 360 degree views. Free (except for the Art Museum)
Open until 4pm most days, the conservatory has five different plant environments including a cactus room. Free.
