This is a large, room in the finished half of my basement. You control heating in the space. The bed is a good quality convertible couch, but some people have preferred to sleep on my air bed and leave the couch set up. You have access to all the shared spaces: living room, dining room, kitchen, main floor bath and spare room with piano and small desk. I sleep in an upstairs bedroom and my son who visits from college occasionally also has a bedroom up there. There will often be another guest in the main floor bedroom.
I have a lively, clean little dog. Your dog would be welcome as long as he/she is peaceful and housebroken. There is a dog door with access to the fenced back yard.
The neighborhood is quiet, close to 2 really nice parks and several pubs and coffee shops and bus lines to downtown Seattle.
No smokers please. I'll provide clean bedding, towels, coffee/tea makings. You are welcome to store food in the fridge and use cookware/dishes as long as you clean up (dishwasher-yes). Doors and gates need to remain shut so my little dog doesn't get lost. I am out early most weekdays, so appreciate relative quietness in the living room after 10:30pm, but that said, I sleep upstairs and the guest rooms are on the main floor and in the basement, so you have relative privacy.
Lisa was great and really friendly, helping me with all my questions. Green Lake is a beautiful neighbourhood and good retreat from the city. So much so that I'm going to be staying there again soon!
Liked staying with Lisa. She is a warm and sharing hostess. Had lots of fun with her black Labrador dog who also acted like a warm host. The neighborhood is great to be in with its decorative and fragrant blooming trees while I was there. The lake and food and the Woodland Park Zoo was all whithin easy walking distance for me. Parked my vehicle in front of her home and did not need it again till the end of my visit when I left. I would gladly stay there again.
I really enjoyed my stay at Lisa's place. If you are looking to be close but not in the heart of the hustle and bustle of downtown it's a great location right next to the lake.
The place has everything to be comfortable and Lisa was very welcoming and helpful.
I stayed at Lisa's house for a week+ during apartment and car hunting because I just relocated to the Seattle area.
List was very quick to respond to my couple of inquiries. My arrival in Seattle was around 11 PM, but List was willing to stay up to check me in and I really appreciated that! Upon arriving at her house, she and her dog (Lexi) greeted me at the door and Lisa walked me through the house explaining everything in details. I already felt like I was home after a long trip.
The house is located in a very nice, quiet area, 1-2 min of walking distance from the Green Lake area yet it is also close to restaurant and stores (within 3-5 min of driving). I rented the basement room - which, indeed, was spacious. The bed was huge for 1 person and the room had a fridge, hangers, and a TV too.
A spacious living room area for hanging out, a nice kitchen with almost everything you need to cook...etc and another room with a piano in it. I had a chance to play the piano and it sounded great!
I truly enjoyed my stay at Lisa's house and she was a great host. Gave me valuable advice on apartments, furniture...etc. Lisa's willingness to help out in any way she can really impressed me! Ah, and Lexi - you gotta love her! She is a nice, fun dog who likes to play.
Thanks Lisa so much for your hospitality! :)
My experience staying with Lisa was fantastic! She was very communicative before arriving and willing to help in whatever way she could. Her tour of her home and expectations was welcoming and informative. The accommodation itself is as described. The neighborhood is residential but has close access to a variety of amenities, especially for walks/runs/bikes in a urban natural setting. I would definitely stay again looking for a comfortable place in a safe neighborhood with great access to all of Seattle.
Lisa graciously welcomed us into her home and the room was exactly as listed.
Lisa was great, very welcoming and easy to get along with. The space was perfect for my purpose in Seattle and accurate to it's description. The neighborhood was adorable, I loved in my free time to go walk around and explore the area and the Lake is just down the street. Overall I would highly recommend this location/rental I couldn't have asked for a better first experience with airbnb!

I am a somewhat hyperactive woman who spends lots of time working and playing with animals and bicycles. I'm pretty quiet but enjoy meeting people and sharing the treasures of the Seattle area with them.
