Newly-weds! Melissa is a private chef, costumer and guesthouse-keeper. Abil is a tour guide and professional beer-appreciator for a local Micro-brewery and has a masters degree in nutrition. We love to travel, so we wanted to share our home with like-minded guests. We enjoy tea every morning and use tea pots from our collection. We have a massive cookbook library. We are both from western states: Nevada and Texas but we LOVE Seattle. What's not to love? Fabulous food, art, music, theatre, burlesque, and natural beauty everywhere. We have lived here for decades, so we know how to be great hosts.
