Step inside a lovely private garden retreat located 7 miles from downtown Seattle and 8 miles from SeaTac Airport. Your getaway is surrounded by lush foliage, fragrant flowers, and a whispering breeze off Puget Sound. During the Spring the private entrance is shaded with large fragrant wisteria blossoms. Sip your morning coffee at the outside cafe table and listen to bird songs welcoming the day.
We welcome you and would love to get to know you, but we also respect your privacy.
The suite includes front room with small kitchenette, a nice size bathroom with roomy shower, and a comfy bedroom with a drop-leaf table and chairs for eating meals. There is plenty of room to set up a port-a-crib or extra sleeping mat for an extra guest. Guests also have access to outside eating table and gardens. We also have a large chicken yard with 14 chickens. Fresh eggs!! No roosters :-)
The garden is a perfect venue for small outdoor weddings and events. This space is available to rent at an additional cost. Please contact me for more information.

I am originally from Albuquerque, New Mexico and now a longtime resident of the PNW. I absolutely love living in the PNW with all its natural beauty and opportunity to indulge my passions. Seattle has so much to offer with events and places to explore. However, I am a desert girl at heart and regularly visit the SW for my Rocky Mountain fix.
My passions include cooking, foraging, hiking, gardening, sailing, and knitting. I love tending my chickens and hiking with my dogs, Meg and Grady. But, most of all, I love meeting new people, getting to know them, and learning about all their adventures. As a former professional Personal and Executive assistant, I very much enjoy taking care of people and their needs. This is why I love being an Airbnb host. Nothing gives me greater pleasure than making a difference in peoples lives. I love cooking delicious meals for my guests and making sure they are comfortable and cozy in their suite. It is my goal as a host for my guests to leave here feeling more enriched by their experience.
For my own enrichment I listen to a lot of audio books. I don't have much time to sit and read, so I listen while I work. I enjoy almost all genres, but I particularly enjoy historical fiction (Sharon Kay Penman, Edward Rutherford, Herman Wouk, Ken Follett) fantasy (Diana Gabaldon, Orson Scott Card, Jonathan Renshaw, Neil Gaimon, Dean Koontz, Robert McCammon), mystery (John LeCarre, Rhys Bowen, Jacqueline Winspear) and many others. A couple of my favorite books are "East of Eden" by John Steinbeck and "The Good Earth" by Pearl S. Buck. If you haven't read them, DO!
I love to travel and a bike trip across France or Italy is in my bucket list. I'm not a "fancy" traveler and prefer the simple life. I love to camp and stay in rustic cabins. One of my favorite vacation spots is Iron Springs Resort. It is not rustic, but the cabins are nostalgic and comfortable. I have many good memories there. Another favorite spot is Lake Ozette in the Olympic National Forest. I had the best canoe camping trip there ever. Many of the campsites at Lake Ozette are only accessible by boat. It is a beautiful place and within hiking distance of ocean beaches. I love adventure and live by the motto "Life is an adventure! Live it!!". I hope you will come share some of your own adventures with me.
