Guests will enjoy a completely private separate-entrance studio apartment fully equipped with private restroom, microwave, mini-fridge, toaster, coffee maker, work space, and ample storage space. Guests have full access to the private back yard & laundry, free street parking ,and a mile walk to Puget Sound or 15min drive/taxi (35 min bus ride) to downtown Seattle.
Tucked above our garage, and with views primarily of the sky and treetops, you'll feel the stress melt away as you enter into your own private sanctuary. Recently remodeled, comfortably furnished, with a new 3/4 bath and washer/drier on the lower level, mini-fridge, microwave, coffee maker, and toaster you'll have everything you need for comfort and convenience.
The bed is a futon; we've slept on it, and think it's one of the more comfortable beds we've ever slept on (and our guests agree!). We can also accommodate your kids (10 and under at no extra charge), or up to 2 extra adults with sleeping bags on the carpeted floor.
You'll have access to the entire guest unit, which we don't use at all when guests are with us. You're also welcome to use the washer/drier in the garage, and have full access to the ample front & back yard.
If you'd like to use our coal bbq, you're welcome to! Grab a fresh salmon from Pikes Place, hop on the bus for the 30-40 min ride home, and eat fresh grilled salmon that night for dinner on our covered deck under the twinkle lights!

We love having guests, and are happy to give you tips on our favorite local spots. We are avid adventurers and outdoorsy folks, and have plenty of recommendations for those sorts of activities - with or without kids. We also love Seattle's incredible dining, and have loads of tips on amazing places to eat and drink in this beautiful city!
We have (we've been told and we agree) two fantastic and well-behaved kids aged 5 & 6. They'll want to say hello, but will absolutely respect your space and quiet.
We'll provide homemade granola for your first two breakfasts with us, and are happy to help you with anything we can - just ask!
No major cleaning needed upon departure, just a general tidy.
If you want to use our home as a base to explore some of the surrounding area (ie - go backpacking or camping in the Cascades or Olympics), you're welcome to store some of your things in our garage for only $10/night up to 3 weeks.
