The Space

Two well-furnished private rooms are available in a great location within walking distance of downtown Seattle and Capitol Hill. Anyone looking for clean, comfortable accommodation in a peaceful, friendly neighborhood yet within easy reach of all the action will feel instantly at home in this Shangri-La.

This well-maintained family home offers two rooms that are ideal for a single person or a couple wanting to rent space in a pleasant, safe neighborhood. The house is exceptionally light and bright with wood flooring and tasteful décor throughout. Each private room has a comfortable bed and everything you need to call this space home.

A work desk is provided, making this an ideal choice for students, tourists and anyone working in downtown Seattle or at the Sea-Tac Airport. Long or short-stay visitors are warmly welcomed and the home is very family-friendly.

Laura makes a warm and friendly hostess and provides a healthy breakfast daily in the very affordable room rate. There is a local grocery store just one block from the door and refrigerator space is available.

Additional amenities in this cozy home include the use of a private bathroom, a modern well-equipped kitchen and a washer and dryer. Wireless Internet access is provided free of charge, making this an excellent choice for both business and leisure guests.

Located in the Central District and conveniently close to almost everything, visitors soon realize they are following in the footsteps of some of Seattle’s most vibrant residents. Jimi Hendrix grew up playing on these very streets and went to school two blocks away at Garfield High School.

Century Link and Qwest Stadium are walking distance from the house – avoiding traffic and parking costs.

Also, the fascinating Chinatown is a short ten blocks away where you can find the Seattle Union Station.

The house is within easy reach of Seattle University, University of Washington, Seattle Central Community College, the public library, and a major medical center. If you feel the need to escape, there’s a bus stop conveniently close by and the airport is 25-30 minutes away.

Four major bus lines run a block away getting you all over the city in minutes.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • My stay in Seattle was to see an old friend. The location to him was perfect, just around the corner.
    The house was clean and tidy and the room had all I needed, especially a very comfortable bed.
    There was a little trouble with the plumbing in the shower but Laura was on to it as soon as it happened and there was another shower to use, so I wasn't put out at all.
    I loved Seattle and wouldn't hesitate to stay their again if my friend was in the same neighborhood, Thanks Lynn, Australia

  • I had a great time in Seattle thanks in part to Laura's easy and flexible check in. I only saw her on the second day but she was super friendly. The room was very cozy with a comfy bed, it is a bit far from DT but if you don't mind walking then its not that big of an issue. Plus its a great way to experience each little corner. If you're flying in take the light rail (2.50?), also rent a bike from Timbuk2 (free! with a deposit), get out n check all the usual Space Needle, Pike's Market, etc. I would def stay here again, however, consider its a good 30 min walk to DT. Thanks Laura

  • Laura was nice and she was very busy and tried to do as much as she could. i did not realize it was a african-american neighborhood, though close to international district. It was not up to my cleanness and comfort standard, but considering the room rate, her place was good for the traveller with a budget

  • I stayed in Laura's house for a little more than 3 wonderful months.
    Let me start with the house. It has everything you need and Laura allows you to use them. There is no TV, but for me it was no problem, because I worked most of the day. I felt absolutely at home there, if I didn't want to be disturbed, Laura respected that and I had my own space and time when I wanted.
    Now about Laura, she is a wonderful person, you can talk about a lot of different topics and the talk would keep going and going and had to stop so we could get some sleep for the next day. If you need anything, she will try to help whatever you need. She helped me so much, because this was a big change for me and she made this it went really smooth.
    I would recommend this house for all my friends coming to Seattle!

  • Laura is one of the most friendliest and open minded gung-ho grandmother I've met! She makes you feel so welcomed and comfortable just like living at home. Her place is clean, cozy and centrally located near downtown Seattle about 20 mins bus ride away. I will definitely stay here when I visit Seattle again! Thanks so much, Laura for a wonderful stay and experience in Seattle :-)

  • Both Laura and her home r awesome. My mom and I stayed there for 8 days. Everything is amazing. Super clean, quite convenient for going out to the attractions, or just (email hidden), washing clothes, do your work. My mother and I nearly cooked everyday, and Laura is quite nice and helpful, since my mother cannot speak English. One day Laura even baked a delicious quiche inviting us to try. After all, It's just a great time there.
