About this listing
This beautiful double room features a magical sleeping room and a second room that features a sitting area and breakfast /mini kitchen area. On two major bus lines, come enjoy the burgeoning arts district just minutes away from downtown
Our new Sunny space has a private room from the 1904 vintage era. This building has a VERY interesting history and features comfortable rooms with lovely wood floors and wainscotting down the hallways. Restored with antiques and your very own private room and an AMAZING large (think mexican tiled heaven with 6 showerheads)tiled bathroom that is shared only with the other air bandb room.. Our new space is surrounded by art and creative studios with our resident Jack Russell wandering around to say hello occasionally. Dog is kept out of the guest rooms but they probably are not allergy free. You will have full access to our kitchen and it's cooking facilities.Your room is your own private sunny space. Although your room is private you share the building with the owner and her own art studio and artists from diverse back grounds who are very respectful of all guests. This space is lovely and fairly quiet but don't expect crickets singing as this is NOT a suburban area, it is an industrial Arts district. This is a tidy but eclectic space and it is a creative oasis that is easily accessible to and from downtown Seattle., The neighborhood is the Industrial Arts District and lots of fun shops and coffee shops within feet of our door. Easy access to many tourist attractions via bus that goes in front of the house to downtown Seattle. The room is tidy and all amenities are available to you plus an amazing guest bathroom appropriately named the Barry white :-). Please feel free to purchase food and use kitchen at your leisure. Coffee/tea/ in the morning if you (website hidden) will provide all linens,towels,hair dryer,curling irons ect. If you have a special request please feel free to ask, we probably have it....we have everything. This building is lovely and is 112+ years old so please be respectful of her and she will provide you with a sweet oasis from the bustling city. We enjoy making your stay comfortable. Animal friendly Children are welcome to come with you with pre approval and $150 damage deposit. This building is easy access with bus across street/great neighborhood with 15 minute ride into downtown. You will have lots of fun but if you do not want a fun cultural experience then you probably want to stay in a vanilla flavored hotel. Many guests have enjoyed their stay in Georgetown with us ,as you can see from the reviews . We will try to help you get around and be comfortable in your stay. Easy access to downtown and points beyond,wifi and great shops within a rocks throw. You will be provided with an amazing map of Georgetown and a lonely planet guide to Seattle upon your arrival.

Interaction with Guests
I have a hands on warm approach to guests but also give them their own space to relax and enjoy our space
Lots of restaurants (see our guide book) bars,coffee shops and antique /eclectic stores. We also have a huge parking lot and busses right across the street. This neighborhood is still a tiny bit gritty but is honestly more sparkly than a few years ago. Come see it for yourself
Car 2 go is in this neigborhood
Bus is across the street to downtown (14 minutes) and two major freeways (exit 162 off of Interstate 5 and "car to go" service is right outside our door most days
Bus 124 and 106 are right across the street that goes right to downtown to light link rail and the airport. We also have an easily walkable neighborhood
Here are instructions from the airport if you are using mass transit
Yes you will get the link rail from the airport to the underground tunnel, get off in the international district, cross the tracks to go to bus number 106 going south to Georgetown. The bus will take about 15 minutes. You will get off in Georgtown at the Doris street stop. Call me from there , you will walk back towards city 1/2 block. Our building is located in the middle of the block. I am happy to answer any ?'s before and during your visit

I am a visual artist who is the director of a Non profit community Arts and Cultural Center. The guest rooms are located in the Centers lovely 1904 building and share the building with professional artist studios. The building is truly a vintage charmer and I have been doing the renovations myself. I think you will enjoy my handy work. I enjoy animals,art, gardening and people.. .
This is not a hotel and I do not have staff so it is appreciated that you let me know your arrival time (as close as possible) and communicate this BEFORE your arrival as I arrange my day around meeting you. Late arrivals are hard on me and I may not be able to accommodate late arrivals as I have three jobs and need my beauty sleep :)
I am an easy going person but don't let people get away with much if they are behaving badly.. NO SMOKING IN BUILDING / NO VAPING/ NO POT …you can do all these things in our Smoking area outside. I am easily accessible if you need anything, I am happy to oblige most requests and strive to make every visitor a friend but I also will give you your space. I try to take Sundays off to rest and have time with my dog.
I am also happy to help you plan a fun day here in Seattle. I even have a lonely planet guide to Seattle if you want to borrow it. Late arrivals (after work day 6pm) must be communicated at booking and should be managed before hand .
Also no arrivals after 10 pm unless it is an international flight that has gone horribly wrong. Ill try to accomodate you no matter what but again, lets communicate before your arrival.
