About this listing
* We're currently not taking new guests from October 2015 to late-January 2016. If you are a returning guest interested in staying here during that time, please contact us for availability. *
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.
[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.
