The Space

Two light filled rooms in a tastefully appointed Seward Park home. Rooms include a brand new 47-inch flat screen w/ DVD, new king and queen mattresses, luxury linens, desk and free WIFI. The home contains one beautifully remodeled bathroom spa. The rooms overlook a green belt with native forest. The home easily accommodates longer term stays and I've hosted several guests for 6 weeks or longer. The bathroom spa includes a steam room for eucalyptus infused rejuvenation. Luxurious towels, Italian sandstone tiles, and teak bench compliment your spa experience. Home includes dining and living rooms, kitchen with gas range, and laundry facilities. The deck has a gas grill and outdoor teak dining table.

House trained adult dogs are welcome inside the house. They have full access to a spacious enclosed dog run with dog house.

Home is situated between City of Seattle's Seward Park on Lake Washington and the retail and restaurant district of Columbia City. There is ample free street parking in front of the house. Home is minutes from light rail with travel time of 25 minutes to the airport or 15 minutes to downtown. Buses run two blocks away to downtown Seattle and Capitol Hill. The PCC gourmet natural foods market is two blocks away.

Guests have the entire home which includes two bedrooms, a steam/shower spa, living room, kitchen and dining room. Guests come and go as they wish. I am always available in person or by phone if guests have questions or need any assistance. The downstairs apartment is occupied by another tenant. All individuals and couples are welcome!

  • Matt had a great place to stay while visiting Seattle! He was easy to coordinate and communicate with throughout our entire stay. The home is clean, location is great, and had many amenities. He even provided treats, toys and bowls for our dog. Thanks for a great stay Matt, we'll definitely be back for future visits.

  • Matt was great to work with and the Zen Retreat is a fantastic place. Will definitely want to stay there again when I am back in Seattle.

  • We had an excellent stay. Home was everything as listed. Very private-- nice neighborhood. Everybody seems to walk in Seattle & evrything you need is walking distance ( 1 mile or less).. Thanks Matt for sharing the house.

  • Matt's house is very attractive and well equipped and in a lovely quiet neighbourhood not far from the centre of town. There was plenty of room for two couples to relax in a comfortable, calm setting. We appreciated the comprehensive info package and enjoyed our stay.

  • This is a very sweet little house in a quiet neighborhood not too far from the light rail. If you take the light rail from the airport, keep in mind, there is NO cab stand and it is a LONG walk to the house. You may want to keep a cab company phone number at hand. It cost us $10. The cabby said it would cost about $30 to the airport from the house. The house itself has absolutely gorgeous landscaping but the building is slightly shabby (mostly the deck and the very old torn up linoleum in the kitchen). The inside is small, but well appointed with everything you'd need. Nice bathroom with great shower (we didn't try the steam). There is only one bath for the two bedrooms. Beds are comfortable - low to the ground platforms. The artwork is a little edgy and some is R rated. Nice living room and dining room. Matt was very available and accommodating. We stayed one night on our way to the San Juan Islands with another couple and it was perfect for us.

  • We had a great week at Matts Seward Park Sen Retreat. House is perfect to stay. You can go from here to all sides of Seattle, wich we did. Most of the times by bus. With the warm and sunny weather we had, a taxi home is very pleasant. Quiet neighbourhood. And people are very friendly.
    Thanks Matt for having this place in the rental.

  • I stayed one night in the Seward Park Zen retreat. The house was immaculate and tastefully decorated and spacious. The steam shower was divine! We each had our own cozy bedroom, with comfortable mattresses and bedding. The neighborhood is quiet with tree-lined streets and well-tended homes. I felt very safe there. The highlight was walking around Seward Park and Lake Washington. If I would have stayed in a hotel, I would have been in the hustle and bustle and never would have experienced a beautiful part of Seattle . Coordinating our stay with Matt was easy - he is very friendly and prompt, with well organized instructions for entry into the home and suggestions for what to do nearby.
    We had a wonderful time and would return again!
    Thank you Matt!

  • We really enjoyed our stay here; a short drive to downtown and ample street parking. Also loved that there were restaurants within walking distance. The house was clean, spacious and beautifully decorated. The bathroom was as luxurious as described, a real treat after a long day of walking! Matt responded quickly to our questions, all in all, would definitely stay again!

  • This Place was great. Relaxing and calm. Outside of the downtown area but still accessible. Thanks Matt!

I am a biologist and enjoy outdoor recreation and exploring all the beauty the PNW has to offer. I also enjoy travel in the U.S. and abroad. I seek out great restaurants and cultural activities when I am exploring a new city. I am low-key, trustworthy, and generally most people like me.
