A derelict purchase in 1979, we have lovingly restored our traditional 1907 home. Attention to detail and craftsmanship make our home unique, and we are excited to share it with guests from all over the world. Two private rooms and a bath on the upper story are yours to enjoy!
-No pets are permitted on the property.
-Absolutely no smoking of any substance is permitted in the house or on the property.
-This is a family home...we live here. No loud parties or noise. Quiet time is between 10:00 PM and 6:00 AM.
-Because of my severe sensitivities, this is a chemical fragrance free home. Essential oils and naturally scented products are acceptable, but no perfumes, colognes, chemically scented bath product and toiletries, etc.
-Seattle has a strict recycling ordinance. Containers are provided for garbage, recycling and compostable materials, as well as a mounted chart telling what is needs to go into which container. We expect guests to do their best in this regard. Collection day is on Monday, so if you are here over a weekend, we will need to empty the bins on Sunday evening. If anything gets to the point of overflowing, the city containers are located in the back of the house under the deck, or you can just let us know and we will take care of it.

My favorite things are family, spirituality, natural healthy living, yoga, movies and meeting new people and experiencing new things.
I come from a large family, and I have a large family. I love them all! I am a sister to three brothers and two sisters. I have five children along with their five spouses, who have blessed me with nine grand children. I guess that means that I identify primarily as a mother and a grandmother.
I am also a Licensed Massage Therapist currently with a small practice in my home.
I love to learn about and put into practice natural and healthy food and dietary choices, sustainable living choices, natural healing methods, etc.
I also love to watch movies, but not so much the big box movies as the smaller independent and foreign films. I have quite a collection of them.
I attend yoga classes three times a week and find it a very rewarding system of exercise for my body.
I'm married to a wonderful man, Kirk Jolley. We have been together for about 18 years. He is a very talented builder and contractor. He delights in making older homes beautiful again and he is very good at what he does.
We often travel to Hawaii, since one son lives there with his family. We also like to go to Mexico and Canada. I like staying in homes, apartments or condos because I like having my own kitchen or kitchenette. An unfortunate natural gas exposure has left me with extreme sensitivity to petroleum products, and consequently many scented products and foods. This requires me to ask about heating and cooking fuels in homes, as well as cleaning products or strongly scented products used therein.
My father was a Scout Master and took us camping a lot. He taught us to always leave a place cleaner than we found it. I still do that! My husband often tells me that I am doing the maids job when I clean up a place before I leave it, but I can't help it...it is ingrained in me. My kids thought I was a bit of a neat freak, but I've noticed that they learned well, and they all know how to clean and they keep their homes tidy...even the boys. Needless to say, I would take good care of anyone's place that I stayed in.
