About This Listing
Ground floor of a sweet little 1-bedroom Craftsman home on North Beacon Hill in a safe, family-friendly, walkable neighborhood just south of Seattle. Great views of downtown Seattle, the Olympic mountains and the Puget Sound. Easy local driving, biking or public transit to downtown (less than 2 miles away), stadiums, museums, parks, Pike Place Market, the waterfront and the convention center. Conveniently located 2.5 blocks from the Beacon Hill Link Lightrail Station connecting the Sea-Tac airport to downtown Seattle, and easy walking distance (within 2-3 blocks) to a Red Apple grocery store, library, restaurants, bars, hair salon and multiple businesses. Just 1.5 blocks to an overlook park with sweeping views of the city, mountains and Puget Sound. Short walk to beautiful Jefferson Park with its wonderful new playground, water park, golf course and community center. Easy access to the I-5, West Seattle, Boeing Airfield and Sea-Tac airport (20 minute drive or short ride on Lightrail). House is very bright and cheery with large leaded-glass fir windows. Cook in our newly remodeled kitchen and have a long soak in the clawfoot tub. Home has cable TV, wireless internet, stereo and Blu-ray DVD player. This small, clean, smoke-free house was our first happy family home which we lovingly renovated and restored until recently when we relocated to Europe for a job transfer. It is fully furnished and the kitchen is well-stocked with all our kitchen gadgets, espresso machine and appliances. The bedroom has 1 queen-size bed which sleeps 2 adults and all linens, pillows and mattress are brand new. If you are traveling with children please let us know; we have a toddler mattress, children's bedding, a highchair and toys to make little ones feel welcome stored in the attic and we will arrange for them to be brought down for your visit. The attic is used as storage space for our own belongings and is closed off from the ground floor of the house with a locked door, so the stairs are inaccessible. The house is set well back and is elevated from the street, and has a large front yard. Free street parking with guest pass available. We care about the friends and neighbors who live in our great neighborhood, and are happy to share our space with considerate and respectful guests. No smoking or pets. Our time zone (CET) is 9 hours ahead of Seattle but we will respond as quickly as possible to booking inquiries. Our neighbourhood businesses recently received a nice review in Seattle Magazine, and you might enjoy reading the Beacon Hill blog to learn more about our area.
**4/5/14 UPDATE**: We have learned that we are responsible to collect and pay to the State the 9.5% lodging tax from our guests in Washington. This is not collected by Airbnb. This will be charged via PayPal and collected upon arrival. Thank you.

This accommodation is as nice as the pictures and description claim! Great location, cozy/comfortable accommodation, amazing views. It is clear that the hosts really care about the property and the experience of their guests. We had a few unexpected problems in the kitchen, but we did hear back from the hosts. As we expect the kitchen issues will be fully resolved, we highly recommend it!
What a great little house! We found it easily, slept deeply and enjoyed it completely!
I love the way its been renovated; modern and efficient without losing the charm of a little old cabin on top of a hill.
It was great experience! The house is good fit for two people, everything we need is included, and near downtown, 10~15 min drive. And I got quick response from Candace, they are so nice and kind! Highly recommended!
Thank you, Yang. It was a real pleasure having you as a guest. Thank you for being so helpful and for taking good care of your home. If you have any questions about your new home-city we'd be happy to help you out any way we can! My husband Martin Gehmacher is there for work for the next 2 weeks; maybe you'll run into each other :) Take care!
Candace's home is so comfy and bright! Had such a nice stay! The kitchen is perfect - equipped with all we could need! The location was great -within walking distance to breakfast places, grocery store, public transit and coffee shops. Candace is a fantastic host- very responsive and accommodating! Hope to be invited to stay again!
This our second stay - just as lovely as the first. Very well appointed and great location. Candice is responsive and the house has got great kid amenities.
Overall a great place to stay.Candace was super quick to resolve any problems we had and refunded us for the stay since the water wasn't working. The contact house keeper in the orange folder was super kind and helpful too.
Thank you, Pamela! You were an amazing guest. Not many people would handle an unfortunate surprise like that and be so polite and understanding. Thank you for your patience while waiting for the inspector to check for leaks. All is working now and if you are ever back in Seattle please let us know, we will give you the royal treatment as a guest :)
The house was lovely. It is set back from the street and very private. The area is quiet and mostly residential. There are a couple places to eat/drink in the area but mostly just a calm neighborhood not too far from downtown. The house was just as described and had everything we needed for our stay. The market nearby had anything else you could want. The proximity to the light rail made traveling around the city and to/from the airport very easy. We hope we can make it back to Seattle soon and will definitely try to stay here again.
About the Host, Candace
Hi there! I'm a Canadian healthcare provider and am married to Martin, an Austrian journalist who is currently working for Amazon. We love Seattle and our friendly, community-oriented neighbourhood of North Beacon Hill where this little house was our first family home. We enjoy travel, good food and music, gatherings with our friends and recently...kids. We've outgrown our cheery little house with the addition of two little ones and have recently moved to Luxembourg for Martin's new job and to be closer to his family. We hope you enjoy Seattle and the wonderful experiences it has to offer! Some of our favourites are: Silent-Movie Mondays at the Paramount, SIFF (Seattle International Film Festival), the Seattle Symphony, kayaking on Lake Union, mornings at the Market, ferry rides to the islands and and quick day-trips into the beautiful nature all around the Puget Sound.
