Hello! Our house is a couple blocks off broadway in the northern section of the Capitol Hill neighborhood. The room is 1 of 5 bedrooms in our house. This is a great place for guests on a budget who enjoy sharing common space with locals and other travelers.
Hello! Our house is a couple blocks off broadway in the northern section of the Capitol Hill neighborhood. The room is one of five bedrooms in our house. We have a mix of roommates and other airbnb guests staying in our home! We have a cozy kitchen, bathroom and living room with lots of light! You can do laundry downstairs ($1 wash / $1 dry), and hang out in our lovely living room.
Our house is the tall, dark and handsome type, height / weight proportionate, with a red brick exterior (if you're into that sort of thing). Good to know we are an older home, not a hotel so the aesthetics come with the territory. We're two blocks from Broadway, with a stupid amount of cool shit and buses within walking distance. You can get to the Pike/Pine nightlife in a short 10-minute walk.
Broadway has transformed from its grungy gutter-punk needles-and-heroin 90s roots. Maklemore filmed a music video here last night. Sir Mix-A-Lot wrote "My Posse's on Broadway" about it. Pearl Jam came up with their name at B&O Espresso just down the block (RIP B&O – now moved to Ballard).
We also live right by the library, and we've even been there a few times.
The room can hold one person. As we have multiple listings in this house as well as roommates and one bathroom we limit the overall number of guests in the house to 5 at one time.
Be aware that our house is older, and feels very lived-in. The paint and furniture have blemishes, our carpets have stains that won't quit and our tile floor looks like it needs a mopping even after a vigorous cleaning. We deep clean the house a couple times a week and do daily light cleaning. While our house shows it age, it will always be cleaned up and ready for guests! We appreciate our house for the location and the people.
Our neighborhood can be challenging to park in and only street parking is available. We recommend that guests with cars find a spot they can park in for the duration of their stay (or at least a few days) and enjoy our walkable neighborhood, close proximity to downtown, public transit and lyft/uber services!
You'll be staying with three of us and a few other airbnb guests:
Leah, 31: Leah has lived in the house for 4 years. Leah is a Midwest transplant who grew up in Michigan and spent a few years in Chicago before relocating to Seattle. Living with Leah is like summer camp. Her favorite moments in life are (1) when the power goes out (camping time!), (2) summer barbecues, and (3) when everyone wants to have a dance party. She's really good at people. Leah has several part time jobs that range from working as an ABA therapy assistant (therapy for youth with Autism), staff in a young adult shelter, Residential Advisor for High School International students in a dorm setting and driving with Lyft. Leah likes to keep busy and is often out of the house. You are most likely to see her around if you are at the house during late morning/early afternoon or get a ride from her!
Andrew, 31: Andrew is new to the apartment as of Jan 2017. Andrew hails from Florida and has previously worked with homeless youth and young adults in Seattle area. Andrew works with International students in a dorm setting in the neighborhood. He also drives with Lyft and is aiming to head back to school to study nursing in spring 2017. He has a place in his heart for a well crafted computer game (including story line, coding and graphics) and has a series of mods for his favorite games he has created. Andrew also likes to lift weights to stay fit and gets really pumped when he gets new personal best when doing squats.
Mike, 35: Mike has lived in the house for 10 years! A cali native and Berkeley Co-op resident 10 years ago, he is now a scientist and businessman in human-computer systems. He enjoys having long intellectual discussions about changing the world and happiness and all that meaningful stuff. When he's not doing that, however, he's fun and playful and borderline stupid, like a puppy. All the musical instruments in the living room are Mike’s. Mike has a sweet motorcycle and motor scooter. Mike travels often for any of the 4 businesses he is running! When he is around he loves to meet and chat with guests!
We open up this space for special occasions, like when a roommate has gone out of town, or we're just in the mood for some fun out-of-town company. So take advantage when it's here!
Room Check in/out times are firm yet our house check in/out times are flexible!. Room check in is any time AFTER 3pm and check out BEFORE noon. We do have guests store items in our living room before their room is ready and/or store items after check out in the living room till final departure. This can be arranged during booking.

Mostly via text/phone. Leah does all the guest communications. She works multiple part time jobs and is available via text/phone to answer questions during your stay.
Depending on her schedule, Leah may be available to provide rides to/from the airport for a flat fee of $25 each way. To see if she is available to provide rides during your stay please inquire about this at least a day before check in. Best to check just after booking!
Good to know we typically do not meet our guests in person upon arrival. We aim to have a very flexible check in process that works for our guests schedule so we have set up a self check in process based on detailed instructions sent the week before arrival. We ask all guests to make sure to have these instructions accessible for reference upon arrival. Leah is available via text/airbnb messaging if any questions come up. We appreciate hearing from guests via text once they are in if all is well or if questions have come up!
Provided in the bedroom is a welcome binder with a copy of the house manual (also received via email after booking), list of essential places in our area and roommate recommendations of things to do while in Seattle. This is a great place to look first when questions come up after arrival!
This room has a lock on the bedroom door. The key will be in the room upon arrival. While we strive to have a house where there is trust established so there is no need to have valuable items locked up (we have never had an issue with this), we recognize that travelers may feel safer with locks on bedroom doors.
Follow the golden rule: treat others (and our house!) like you want to be treated.
Keep in mind: We are a home, not a hotel! We have our rooms open to guests because of the wonderful experiences we have had with guests being very respect of our house, communicative about issues that come up during their stay and give us great feedback that helps us continually improve! Please continue the legacy by bringing respect, kindness and safety into our home!
