A lovely and sophisticated 1 BR apartment in the lower part of our University District/ Ravenna Area Craftsman style home, surrounded by a green and lush garden. It is in an ideal neighborhood, with easy access to a lively community, but it's off the street so it is sheltered and generally very quiet. The apartment is in a bright, daylight basement with windows all around; features a private entrance, carpets and hardwood floors, a fully-equipped kitchen with plenty of cookware, dishes, glassware, and utensils. There's a nice, quiet bedroom with a quality queen-size bed and good linens, closet, robes, antique armoire, & dresser.
Guests are welcome to enjoy the back yard and garden patio, barbecue, and deck. For guests staying over a week there is laundry area (shared by the owner) adjacent to the apartment, with newer, high-efficiency appliances, iron and ironing board for your convenience.
We love to travel, have hosted many guests and students, and enjoy interacting with guests to the extent that they would like. We can be available to answer questions and make suggestions, or you can enjoy your privacy, whatever you prefer. Longtime Seattle residents, it is our goal to make your stay as pleasurable and as easy as possible.
This is a perfect retreat for one or two people.
*Each guest must be registered in advance, with full name and contact numbers. When requesting your reservation, please be very clear about who will be staying.
The sofa is also a *pull-out sleeper* that can accommodate the second person if needed.
Also, *PLEASE NOTE* that there is a low ceiling beam so if you are much taller than 6' (1.8m), this may not be a good fit for you.
A portable crib and feeding chair can be available upon request.
We're looking for respectful guests who will enjoy the space and treat our home as their own.
We don't allow parties, pets, or smoking (of any kind), and ask that our guests be over 25.
Please review ALL the listing information before booking to clarify the details of the apartment. Feel free to contact me with any other questions.
We love walking and exploring, enjoying nature and following history. When traveling, we really appreciate beauty, attention to detail, and enjoy cozy out of the way places, unique finds, and special romantic accommodations. We are quiet, clean and respectful, yet friendly and curious about the world around us. We have a lot of experience hosting and visiting others around the world, so have just recently signed up to host with Airbnb. When you stay with us, we hope you'll be as comfortable and happy here as we have been in our travels.
