About this listing
My safe, comfy, smoke-free and alcohol-free Craftsman home is conveniently located five minutes from downtown, five minutes from Gonzaga and one block away from the heart of Spokane's hip South Perry District, home to some of the city's best food and drinks, including:
South Perry Pizza
The Lantern Tap House

HiCo convenience store
Lorien Natural Foods
... and more!
You'll enjoy a super comfortable guest room upstairs on the second floor with a full size bed, four pillows, down comforter, flannel sheets in the spring, fall and winter and cool cotton linens in the summer. There is a closet, shelving and wall hooks for your belongings. It's a pretty quiet neighborhood but a small fan is also provided, mostly because I personally can't sleep without one and bring my own everywhere so I want to offer my guests the same white-noise option.
The bathroom is shared. Towels are provided but please bring your own shampoo, soap, etc. Being an independent traveler makes me a fairly hands-off host, meaning your independence and privacy are greatly respected and I hope you'll do the same. I'm a photographer and social media manager who primarily works with police K9 units and law enforcement. Criminals will probably want to stay elsewhere. :) I often work from home. I'm pretty quiet both day and night, and expect the same from those who stay here. You're welcome to use the kitchen's refrigerator to store food and the microwave, but no cooking allowed. A load of laundry may be done if you stay here more than a few days.
You should know right away that staying here means sharing space with a lovable, social, exuberant, nutball of a dog named Ramona. She LOVES having guests, humans and dogs alike, so if you're traveling with a friendly, well-behaved canine companion, s/he is most likely welcome here too. (Just please remember to pick up after him/her.)
Other amenities include wireless internet, easy street or driveway parking, a fenced backyard, 1/2 block from the bus stop and two minutes from I-90.
I absolutely love my house + neighborhood and bet you will too. Enjoy Spokane and happy travels!
My home is smoke-free and alcohol-free meaning no alcohol allowed in the house. Although I go out of my way to be quiet when I have guests, you are free to keep late hours. Have a good time by all means! If you have any special needs or requests just let me know and I'll do my best to accommodate.
Another perfect stay at this convenient location. Carla is so flexible and has it all set up for whenever you might arrive, even when you're later than anticipated. The location is easy to find and everything is laid out that you might need. Thanks again Carla!
Numerous guests have left reviews that the bed was great, but I found it to be terribly uncomfortable. I imagined a solid bed with a soft pillowtop. This bed folds around you. Carla and Ramona were both friendly.
Carla is wonderful, and her dog is a joy. The house is lovely, the room very comfortable, and the neighborhood is super cool. I'd love to stay with Carla again next time I'm in Spokane.
My stay at Carla's was lovely! I felt very safe, comfortable, and free to make myself at home. We had a little chat in the morning, and she is so sweet! I would definitely stay at this cute house again. It is in walking distance of some Spokane favorites!
This was a nice, simple space and arrangement. The neighborhood is very nice. My host was welcoming and helpful.
Carla made me feel welcome at her place. She is very sweet. The neighborhood was quiet. I had a great time staying at her place.
Carla and Ramona were very friendly and welcoming and they live in a great spot. We recommend Casper Fry for dinner, and it's only two blocks away. We went for a leisurely stroll through the neighborhood and walked through a beautiful park and a cute district on south Perry. We had space to set up our son's bed in our room, and appreciated the fan, as it was a very warm night. The pillows were nice, and the bed is super soft and just a wee bit squeaky. Carla gave great instructions and let us pull into her driveway overnight. Thanks so much.
