All about Elizabeth’s place

This is a basement unit with shoji screened windows that allow for privacy plus light.
The bed is comfortable, the kitchen is well equipped, the bathroom has heated tile floors.
It has a separate entrance from the house. There is on street parking with a permit or you can share the driveway.

The High Speed WiFi is best in the sitting room.

The space
Enter a peaceful space in the lower unit of a private home with a garden on a quiet street. Located in the University District with access to public transportation to most areas in and around Seattle, especially downtown. Easy walking distance to the UW, bookstores, coffee shops, restaurants, movie theaters, upscale and downscale clothing stores, grocery stores, and pleasant green spaces.

Shoji screens are on all the windows of the apartment so it is light and private. The kitchen is equipped with a gas stove, a refrigerator and everything you need to cook with, eat off of and drink out of. Filtered water is in the refrigerator. Tea and coffee are provided along with some fresh fruit and cookies or a quick bread. There are a lot of grocery stores within walking distance. The Farmers Market, open on Saturday from 9AM-2PM year round is across the street from a Safeway. They are the closest.

Hair dryer equipped.

Bookings for a week or more may use the washer and dryer.

Stay here when you visit family and friends. Do you have business at the UW? Do you have a writing project you want to get done? Come see a music show at the Neptune or World Dance at Meany Hall. There is an improv theater not far away. Have a great time!

Please Note: There are times when spiders are many, mainly late summer, early fall. I do the best I can to rid the space of spiders but this is a hundred year old house and the apartment is in a cool basement. If you have a problem with spiders, you'll want to look further for a rental.

I am a transplant from Massachusetts. Gasworks Park is where I fell in love with Seattle over 30 years ago. I have frequent coffee dates and visits from friends. I volunteer time with teen groups, Seattle Children's Hospital and the Audubon Society. Personally, I like to take walks or stream movies and television shows on Netflix while knitting or doing needlepoint. Reading is a favorite pastime. "Where'd You Go, Bernadette" by Maria Semple is a good read. If you are curious about life in Seattle, this book gives a fair description. "The Boys in the Boat" is an excellent nonfiction read. You will learn a lot about the history of this area through the lives of the boys. My favorite destinations are anywhere family and friends can be found.
