My lush 1930's home is only 12 mins to downtown by bus! Surrounded by growing edibles & ornamentals, you can treat yourself this Pacific Rim-influenced room with en suite "stone waterfall" spa bathroom and lovely shared deck. Just blocks to parks, arts center, trails & restaurants. Alki Beach & the water taxi are also nearby.
I have tried to create a serene, verdant refuge from the hustle-bustle by nestling plantings on practically every inch of ground and incorporating unusual ethnic decor. Hummingbirds buzz around and two large dogs "patrol" the grounds.
Enjoy a large private suite with private entrance, lofted ceilings & en suite spa bathroom with shower, shared deck and front yard garden paths in a shared house. You'll have a mini-fridge stocked with fruit, granola bars and yogurt along with a pour-over coffee maker, microwave, hot water kettle and filtered water all in your suite. Fresh towels and linens are provided. The bed is queen-sized with a wonderful plush mattress. The bath is separated by traditional handmade Japanese sliding shoji screens and feels like a spa.
Your suite shares one wall with another guest room. If that room is occupied, you may hear them at times. However, all guests are requested to honor quiet hours from 11 PM to 7 AM.
PLEASE NOTE: The kitchen, utility room, backyard and back studio building are resident-only areas unless other arrangements have been made in advance. Note that the friendly resident dogs have access to the shared deck and will often be there to greet you at the end of each day. The separate Hummingbird Studio is available by special arrangement for individual/group gong meditation and sound healing, customized ceremonies, receptions and weddings. Sha'ari is a music therapist and minister and can officiate or facilitate your special event. Extra charges will apply. If you are interested, please ask so we can set something up for you.

Like many Airbnb hosts, I am not a full time innkeeper or hotelier. Therefore, please communicate with me about your arrival time. Please plan to check in between 5-6 pm although we can often work out another time with advance notice. I have a non-traditional work schedule so am often around on weekdays. I will always try to be available at check in. After that, I will respect your privacy and let you fly solo unless you initiate contact. I usually send short text messages just to check in see whether you need anything. When I'm not at work, it's not unusual to see me digging in the garden, maintaining the property or returning muddy from the dog park. Or you can often find me in the kitchen. Feel free to stop by for a chat! Please do not hesitate to ask if you have any questions or there is anything you need.
Want to get married here? Not only am I a WA State Minister, but I have a beautiful space available for you, The Hummingbird Studio, a freestanding building on the property. Weddings are $150 and up. Custom individual and group healing gong bath sessions are available on site. Private sound therapy sessions are also available for $95 per 50-minute hour. I have two friendly dogs - Sabu and Mikah - whom you will only encounter on the back deck or if you stop by to visit in the kitchen. If you are traveling with pets, I can recommend a local place to board them.
I am so glad you are staying with me. I want everyone to be comfortable so please read and follow all the House Rules. Please ask if you have any questions!

A little about me - I have many interests including cooking, gardening, music healing, dogs, hiking, decorating on a budget and travel. The Pacific Northwest is one of the most beautiful and interesting places in the world - especially during the Summer!
I believe that traveling expands both the mind and the heart. When I do travel, it is so gratifying to meet people who are open, gracious and generous. That is the kind of host I aspire to be. Without being too corny, I will admit that I feel that life is a gift and it is incumbent upon us not to waste it by negative thinking and creating false barriers. Rather, I aim celebrate it every day (I'm not always successful...). Working in the ER for 15 years has taught me that you never know when your journey will end so make the most of it NOW!
