Large bedroom suite in daylight basement with small refrigerator/microwave/induction cooktop/electric kettle outside room and exclusive guest bathroom.
GUEST INFORMATION FOR BOOKING:
+ If you are considering booking and would like to check pricing for your specific dates, please enter the dates you are interested in and click "book it", the next screen will show you the final price (including taxes and fees) for your consideration before you process payment and confirm.
+ Please note that every person in your group must be included in the guest numbers, so I don’t exceed my maximum capacity of 3 people. The policy for my listing is that there is a flat fee for the first 2 guests, and a fee of $15 per night for a third guest, regardless of age. Therefore, Airbnb’s system will not calculate the correct guest numbers and accommodation fee when there are children under 2 years of age included. To manually override this, enter children who are under 2 years of age as though they were in the 2-12 category (this will ensure you know exactly what you’ll be charged BEFORE you book), and let us know in your booking request message when you have children who are under 2 years old in your party.
What you'll enjoy by staying here:
+ a large (17.5 x 10.5 feet), quiet, very private guest bedroom in our daylight basement.
+ exclusive access to a full bathroom on the same level as the guest bedroom. bathroom includes hair dryer, shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, lotion and towels for your convenience.
+ a very comfortable queen bed with pillow top mattress and quality down comforter.
+ a high-end, queen-size convertible bed (also very comfortable) in the media room for the privacy of additional guests in your party.
+ a full-size comfortable couch with down and foam cushions (with cushions removed, the couch makes a comfy bed for anyone 5'9" or shorter, or side sleepers. We will provide bedding if want to use this as a bed for a 3rd guest).
+ a media room with a couch and chairs, TV (with Apple TV and Netflix), and board games and puzzles.
+ reliable, high speed WiFi.
+ a large selection of magazines and books - both focused on Seattle travel and fiction/non-fiction - for your reading enjoyment.
+ plenty of accessible, free parking (both on street and in the driveway, if needed).
+ a chest of drawers and hanging rod in case you'd like to unpack your bags.
+ a small kitchenette area featuring a small refrigerator, microwave, electric kettle, induction cook top, and dishes that you may use if you want to easily prepare light snacks (complimentary coffee/tea and oatmeal are also provided). However, this is not a full kitchen, so there is no oven nor kitchen sink. (We ask that guests leave their dirty dishes in plastic tubs that we provide, so that we can get the dishes and wash them for you while they are out). If you would like to cook on our gas grill, please contact us to make arrangements.
+ Note - the basement suite is not suited for very tall people since the ceiling height is 6' 3" and there is one area where a beam drops a few inches lower.
Our house is occupied by a married couple and three dogs; however, the guest area is kept animal-free and the dogs are kept on the main floor of the house, away from guest amenities.
The basement level has a separate access and includes all of the necessities needed for a comfortable stay; however, guests are welcome to share any of the following features of our home with us:
+ Large, private, fenced back yard with outdoor dining, large back deck, lounge chairs, and two-person hammock in case you would like to relax outside.
+ Guests who stay 4 or more days are welcome to use laundry facilities for two free loads of laundry per week. Additional loads are available at a fee of $3 per load.

Interaction with Guests
Tom is a Seattle-area native, and Corinne has lived in Seattle for 21 years, so if you are looking for recommendations, we're happy to provide local tips and advice. We have lived in the Ballard neighborhood for 9 years and have compiled a list of our favorite local restaurants, music venues, outdoor activities - most of which are located within a mile of our home.
We both have traveled quite a bit and are also big fans of being AirBnB guests ourselves because we enjoy having the opportunity to chat with other travelers. However, if guests are too busy having fun to chat, or would prefer more privacy, our guest facilities will be a great choice since the guest bedroom, bathroom and kitchenette are on a separate floor from our main living space; furthermore, the stairs between the two floors are separated by a door, so if you're not a fan of dogs, you don't have to worry about one of our dogs intruding in your space. Guests also have a separate entry to enter the guest quarters from our back yard.
Guests who are staying 4 nights or more are invited to use our laundry facilities free of charge; however, we ask that you limit your laundry use to 2 loads per week. Short term guests (1-2 nights) who need to use the laundry facilities can do so at a charge of $3 per load. Please don't start any laundry before 10:30 p.m.
We are happy to share the back deck and back yard common areas with our guests. We also have a secured garage if you need to store a bike or two.
Guests who stay with us should be comfortable using stairs. There are 4 stairs up to the guest entrance, and 10 stairs down to the basement apartment.
We do not allow smoking indoors; however, there is a fenced yard and a covered front porch where people can smoke.
Check out time is set at noon to get ready for incoming guests. Most of the time we can work something out if you need a late check out, but check with us first to be sure we don't have anyone coming that afternoon.
- Be kind to the apartment - we charge a very low cleaning fee for your benefit, so please reciprocate :)
- Quiet time 11 pm - 7 am, but you can come and go as you please. We live above the apartment, but won't hear you as long as don't yell or don't blast the TV volume.
- All guests on the property must be registered with the Airbnb reservation. Any additional guests must be approved by host via email or text message.
- Be sure to close and lock the back gate behind you to ensure security and safety of the property and our dogs)
- Anyone on the property must abide by all local/state/federal laws (including alcohol, drug, and internet use).
- No firearms are allowed on the property.

We are avid Airbnb guests as well as hosts. We first stayed at an Airbnb location in Sydney, Australia, while honeymooning in January 2012, and were so impressed with our experience that we are now hooked! Not only are the Airbnb properties a good value, but more importantly, we have had amazing interactions with each of the hosts at locations where we've stayed, which now have expanded beyond Sydney, AU, to include a few locations in our home state of Washington as well as cities such as Paris, France, Vancouver, Canada, England: London, Cornwall and Bath, Oregon: Portland, Seaside, and Bend, California: San Francisco, Sebastopol, Petaluma, Willits, Palm Springs, and Sonora, New York: Williamsburg and Ithaca, Baltimore, Philadelphia, and Miami. We've been a guest in 33 different Airbnb locations over the past 5 years. In fact, I can't remember the last time we stayed at a conventional hotel!
Since we had such great experiences as guests, we decided to start hosting in the summer of 2012 and listed our guest room on Airbnb. Hosting has proven to be a fantastic experience since we are both seasoned travelers and enjoy chatting with others about their travels, etc.
In terms of demographics, we are both in our mid-forties, have traveled all around the country (and the world) and are also are very tidy and respectful. Beyond travelling, we like listening to live music, exploring neighborhoods, having fun with our dogs, gardening and cooking great food, spending time near the water/beach, and meeting new people.
