There is ample parking or easy walkable access from the airport lightrail, and easy access to grab your keys for your stay. We have a 3 year old and a 16 year old and are often entertaining so the home is ready for a range of guests. This house is great for a family stay, or couples, but please do not inquire if you are hosting a party. Please no drugs or smoking in the home.
Although we will not be around during your stay, we are happy to provide help with directions, transport options, great food in the hood, a list of which neighborhoods to hit, nice beach walks, and other helpful advice before your arrival to support an awesome stay in Seattle. Happy to communicate via text, email, phone if any questions arise during your stay. Please note that we do actively live in this house when we are not hosting Airbnb guests, so it is not a "hotel" like rental it is a home that we love and means a lot to us.
We are LGBTQ friendly! I work for a wonderful organization that serves youth in LGBT families and so we are a safe host for all families.
This is our home, not a full year rental so we ask that guests treat it like you are staying with a friend. We welcome couples, families, friends to stay, but please don't inquire if you are looking for a rental to throw a party (small gatherings, guests for dinner, are of course welcome).
No smoking at all please, anywhere on the property. No pets please. Please tidy up after yourself. No drugs allowed at all and please limit alcohol. When we are not renting we are an alcohol-free house so we appreciate you disposing of any alcohol you bring into the home before the end of your stay. Thanks so much for respecting our home!
I am the Executive Director for a wonderful non profit social justice org that supports youth in LGBTQ families. My favorite US cities are Brooklyn and Minneapolis where I grew up. I have a partner who enjoys musicals (I hate them) and we have a 16 year old and a 4-year old. When we travel we like to walk, experience neighborhoods, and drink coffee.We love sharing our home and staying in unique and well loved homes of others versus a sterile hotel experience. We are always respectful (golden rule followers) and like to leave behind our thanks and a tidy home. We LOVE our home too and expect to grow old here. Welcome!
