Convenient location near airport and a quick bus ride downtown. Make yourself at home is my motto, and guests' reviews seem to agree! This is a 3rd room available in my house (please see other listings for more details).
Welcome to my home!
I have private rooms to choose from. This listing is for a room with queen bed, as well as a day bed that can be used as couch or twin bed. It's upstairs, facing east, for morning sun.
Rest of house- I've built a new deck for outdoor dining and lounging during Seattle's sunny summer days. You'll also be staying in one of the most eco-conscious guesthouses- I've installed solar panels to provide our electricity. I sometimes cook breakfast/brunch, usually offered on the weekends, otherwise help yourself to cereal, tea and coffee, and fruit in the shared kitchen. Conveniently, I'm about 3 miles, 7 minutes drive from the airport; I can pick you up if arranged in advance. Buses and the Lightrail train heading downtown are within walking or biking (borrow one of mine) distance.
Accès des voyageurs
Kitchen fully stocked with cooking utensils and dishes, 2 bathrooms with plenty of towels and extra toothpaste, washer and dryer, outdoor spaces, including the fruit trees! Also, as I'm an avid outdoor recreation seeker, equipment rental is available (i.e. gear for camping and backpacking, rafting, climbing - if I don't have it, I'll know where to get it, if you're coming to the great Pacific Northwest to explore our recreational adventure opportunities. I have trail passes and maps and informational brochures you can borrow, as well as my local knowledge to give you tips on places you'd enjoy, whether good places for live music in the city or multi-day backpacking routes, scuba diving, and skiing.
Échanges avec les voyageurs
I'm living here too, so you'll most likely see me at check in, in the kitchen in the morning, or working on things around my house. I enjoy having conversations with all my guests! And, when I go out for music, a hike, or a Sounders game, you'll most likely be invited to come along.
The check-in/check-out times are preferred, but flexible. please indicate when you intend to arrive, as soon as you know.
I'll message you before you arrive with the current door code (electronic keypad). If you push the lock symbol in middle first, it will light up the numbers. Put in the 4-digit code and it will open automatically. When leaving, push the lock symbol and it will lock automatically.
I sometimes have an extra vehicle available for guests to rent, so you can let me know if interested.
Contact Greg and ask questions about anything you're unsure of. I can usually resolve any questions you have, usually with a quick message.
Quiet hours after 9pm to respect other guests staying in the house. This doesn't mean absolute silence, just considerate about volume.
Be alert about where you park. There's usually spots in the driveway or the gravel next to it. If those are full, the neighbors have been cool about letting guests park on the concrete in front of their fence (but of course don't block driveway), and across the street, the gravel areas are also an option. Don't park on any part of the street itself.
Please don't leave wet towels on the dresser, floor, or bed. Hanging in closet is the best place.
Please no smoking in or around the house, as some people are very sensitive to smoke. There are some spots in the far corners of the yard that may be suitable for smoking.
Please be Eco-conscious. Turn off lights when not in room, take efficient showers, unplug electronics when done charging, etc.
If you leave food in the fridge, please label with name and date, so it doesn't get forgotten in there.
People usually describe me as easy-going, friendly, and helpful. I'll suggest events and places to visit around town, and do all I can to make your stay comfortable.
I'm curious about many topics (especially traveling), so I'll probably ask you about your life! I like to visit with my guests, if they are so inclined to be social while here.
I enjoy outdoor recreation (join me on a hike or river rafting), dance and music (latin, blues), board games (I have a selection at home), reading (also a variety of books available for you to peruse)...and the list goes on.
