Unwind and enjoy the city in our cozy and clean guest suite located in the heart of Columbia City, one of Seattle's most charming, walkable, and diverse neighborhoods.
We live in the main, separable part of the property and are excited for you to use our space as a home base.
Our lower level guest suite has 2 queen-sized bedrooms, bathroom, and living space with a double-size futon. Kitchen amenities include a microwave, refrigerator, dishes, tea kettle, and complimentary coffee/tea. You are welcome to use the attached laundry room.
Please note, noise transfers very easily between the guest suite downstairs and our home above. You will hear us, we will hear you. If you are coming to town to party with friends (or like to be loud in general) or would prefer to be in a place where you don't hear others above you, our place is not your best option.
Columbia city is a vibrant, eclectic neighborhood with great restaurants, fun shops, theater, coffee shops, a great bakery, a natural foods grocery store, and an active night life, all within a few walking blocks. Seward Park and Lake Washington are a little over a mile away.
We are 4 miles to downtown and a half mile from the Columbia City light rail station. Several bus routes with frequent schedules are a block or so away. The Columbia City light rail station is about a half mile walk away and provides service to downtown Seattle in less than 20 minutes or the airport in about 30 minutes.
The guest suite has a private entrance in the back of the house with a keypad entry lock, which makes check in/check out easy. You are welcome to check yourself in. I'm also happy to meet you to take a few minutes to get oriented if you prefer.
Please note that access to the unit requires walking down a small staircase and along a short stone pathway.
You have exclusive access to the entire lower unit. The laundry room is shared with the upstairs and you are welcome to use it. There is ample street parking and one parking space available in the driveway. You are welcome to enjoy the backyard and patio.
We'll be around off and on during the day most days. We'll respect your privacy during your stay, but are available to answer questions and more than happy to provide tips for eating in the neighborhood, exploring Seattle, and adventuring outside the city!
Note that if you're looking for a place to party, this is not the right place for you. We live upstairs and noise travels pretty easily between the guest suite and our home. On that note, you should expect to hear some noise from above (we walk around sometimes, play music, have a dog, etc).
Other things to note
We live upstairs with our sweet, fun-loving, super smart pooch, Wiley. It's possible upon arrival that he'll make his presence known with some barking, but fear not! He is only announcing arrivals and fulfilling his duty of protecting his domain. He quickly warms up and becomes his wiggling, wagging self.
No smoking in the unit or on the property.
