Our backyard studio is ready to welcome guests to the North Seattle neighborhood of Greenwood. We are just 6 miles from downtown and offer a quiet street, fun dining/shopping nearby and easy access to many of Seattle's great gems. The space is cozy at 200 square feet, a full size bed that sleeps two, private bathroom, located in our quiet well-maintained backyard.
We have a cute private studio (with bathroom) in our backyard ready to invite guests! Located in North Seattle this area has everything nearby. The studio has a keyless entry, a great house manual + guide book to look through, a TV, coffee, plentiful street parking and many nearby activities.
The Studio is 200 square feet of living space, best for 2 people traveling together (1 small child may stay as well if you let us know in advance, but note that the room is not childproofed).
The bed is a pillow top mattress that is *full size* (not queen size), it is very comfortable! Bed linens include cotton sheets and a down alternative comforter with duvets that get switched.
We provide a small fridge, water boiler, coffee (Starbucks via packs) and creamers provided.
Street parking is available and plentiful (we ask guests to park in front of our house).
We personally maintain our large garden which used to be maintained by an arborist and has beautiful trees and incredible spring flowers. All the neighbors on our street are friendly and may even say hello.
Our studio is best for guests staying 1-7 nights. This is not a "bed and breakfast", this is a bed and bath with amenities described on this profile page. Thank you for your interest!
-Private studio with bath in backyard (keyless entry with easy instructions).
-Street parking in front of our house.
We both work full-time and will likely not see guests during their stay during the weekdays. We love to do in person checkins so we can at least say hi and meet people we are hosting, however due to scheduling conflicts we have installed a keyless entry to make checkins as easy as possible. Guests will likely see us around our house on the weekends, probably working on a project in the backyard. We hope we can say hi while you're staying with us!
We try very hard to meet every guest in person. It helps us to know who we are hosting and also with the Airbnb review process. However, due to constant requests to check in early we have decided to install a keyless entry and allow checkin anytime after 3pm. We will try to say hi during your stay if possible when we are both around.
Let us know if you have any questions and please read our house rules to make sure those will work!

Hello people! Samantha and Peter here. We have lived in Seattle since 2007 and love it. We met at Seattle Pacific University in 2003 when we were just teenagers, hit it off the first day, and got married over spring break in CA (don't worry, it was planned and had parental approval). Our interests include volunteering at Aurora Commons nearby, art, design, puppets, comedy, adoption, hiking, baking cupcakes, running, reading, or watching our favorite baseball team win and lose (go A's). We are the proud parents of Rory and Rhys. We also have a lively Senegal parrot named McGyver. Peter shares his design expertise with businesses creating interesting work for organizations in Seattle and beyond. He also has an online comic called Metrofare Comic. Samantha works at a digital agency on a product called WordFly, helping organizations around the world. We're excited for your interest and look forward to helping you get the most out of staying in the Emerald City. We also look forward to being guests with other hosts as our lives permit those fun experiences.
