Laura was very accommodating to our arrival schedule as since we were on a road-trip we were unsure of our arrival time. Also, being that we visited during the extreme heat wave and there was no AC, she kindly gave us a fan for the room. If you are just looking for a good place to sleep and don't spend on being in the house much this is a nice option.
The house was located in a good area for access downtown (quick drive or about a $10 uber ride). It was a little farther out from Queen Anne and Ballard.
While the listing does say private bathroom, I would point out that Laura also has another listing for a second room in this same home. If a guest is also staying in the second room then you end up sharing the bathroom. This was not clear to us and we ended up sharing the bathroom with a mother and her young son. So if you are looking for something more private this is not the spot.
Ho soggiornato da Laura per più di un mese ed è stata davvero una bella esperienza. La casa è carina e ben fornita; una cucina ben attrezzata, un giardino sul retro e la camera è carina, con un letto comodo ed un ampia scrivania per lavorare. l'accoglienza di Laura è al top. Lei è una persona molto socievole e generosa, ci tiene che non manchi nulla al tuo soggiorno. Il quartiere è tranquillo a pochi passi da supermarket, lavanderia, farmacia e altri servizi. Venti minuti a piedi per raggiungere downtown oppure il pratico bus a due passi.

I could not recommend a stay with Laura more. Laura is not only a wonderful host, highly concerned with your comfort and happiness, she is a remarkably kind person. Here home provided both wonderful accommodations and a sense of real relaxation at the end of the day.
Laura's place was great and exactly as advertised. The room was spacious and had a lot of natural light. A good place to lounge on a weekend. The house was well connected to the bus routes and a walk away from Seattle Uni (which came in good use for my football games). There were a bunch of nice places to eat and Laura was helpful and guided us in this regard.
Laura is well traveled and it shows across when you speak to her. She had so many books and movies in her room! And I added a bit to the list of movies she had on her watchlist. She gave us our space but was always there when needed. On weekends she is lounging on her hammock :P Loved her place and would have continued to stay if only it wasnt booked for the next 2 months!
Laura is a friendly and gracious hostess. Staying In Jimi Hendrix's Neighborhood quickly felt like home! The neighborhood has easy access to public transportation with a grocery, drugstore, and library nearby. It's a great place to start in Seattle!
This was my first experience with Airbnb and it was a success from start to finish. How nice to feel welcome in someones home. Laura Gonzalez was a wonderful Host. She made me feel so comfortable and answered all questions I had. Her home was perfectly located for my visit. My room was lovely and light and I will hopefully be able to stay there on my next visit to Seattle.
