One bedroom private suite with full bathroom on the back of an adorable, well appointed 1949 house in north Seattle. Quiet residential street, only a couple blocks to Fred Meyer, bars, restaurants, parks and express bus lines to anywhere in the area.

The space

Very private, quiet master suite with a queen bed and a large full bathroom (including tub and shower) on the back of my Mid-Century Modern home. The space has three windows and gets natural light and fresh air that guests can control with curtains and shades. There are live plants, often fresh flowers and a desk with office supplies, a nightstand, lamps, a bench and ample closet space. The bed is very comfortable with a semi-firm memory foam mattress and appointed with fresh comfortable linens, pillows and extra blankets, if needed, are in the closet. The bedroom is carpeted. There is an electric kettle for hot water, coffee and selection of teas, as well as a few snacks, instant oatmeal and sometimes fresh fruit. I have recently added a small microwave and refrigerator to the room for storing and reheating leftovers, continental breakfast in your room or that cookies and milk treat at the end of the night. There are cloth napkins, two place settings of dishes and flatware as well as amenities to wash and dry them.

Guest access

The house is on a large corner lot with a big surrounding yard. During the warmer / drier months (May - October) the patio is semi-private with a table, chairs and umbrella - lovely for al fresco dining or drinks. There is a good-sized, semi-private backyard with a small table and chairs, as well as a nice hammock with a sun umbrella. It is quiet and pleasant back there.

Interaction with guests

I am around a lot, especially weekday evenings and weekends doing house work and out in the yard. I am practically a Seattle native and it is my very favorite place in the whole world. I love to offer suggestions on things to do and see and would be available to help guests plan and organize their visit. I love to meet new people and am often up for some drinks, food or conversation, if the occasion arises, but like the guests to make the call on how social they'd like to be.

I'm a single woman whose interests include music, travel, the outdoors, the arts, entertaining, cooking and socializing.

When requesting a reservation, please let me know a little about you, what brings you to Seattle and things you are interested in during your stay.

Other things to note

There are two indoor-only cats living at the house. PLEASE, no matter how cute they look - DO NOT let them outside or into the garage! They are really never in the guest suite, but have full access to the rest of the house. One is quite shy, but sometimes surprises everyone by making an appearance when strangers are around - Watts. Pollock is the older one and he is more welcoming and friendly and most people are able to see and interact with him if they choose. Both are very sweet and calm. Pollock, especially, may wish to wander in to the guest suite, please keep the door closed to prevent him from making himself at home on your luggage and / or getting locked in there! :)

This is an eco-conscious house and Seattle has very strict laws in terms of recycling, garbage and composting. Please dispose of everything properly and be conservative with your water and electricity usage.

The house has a security system that stays on when nobody is here.

**Due to my demanding work schedule, it is VERY rare that I can accommodate pre-5pm check-ins Sunday - Thursday. Fridays and Saturdays I am a little more flexible. Please let me know if you have extenuating circumstances.

Please note that if you have checked luggage, are renting a vehicle, taking public transportation or arriving during rush hour or the weekend or holiday, it will take at least an hour for you to get from Sea-Tac airport to my house. It is about 19 miles and takes 30 minutes with no traffic.

PLEASE leave me a review after your stay! Improvements to my guest suite are made often and come directly from feedback. More reviews means more guests, means more info, means more improvements! I ALWAYS review my guests.

This spot was amazing! Tucked away in a cute neighborhood also walking distance from some good restaurants, bars and grocery stores. The house is beautiful, clean and decorated oh so cute. There's a bus that takes you directly down town with maybe one stop in between. Heather went above and beyond accommodating us. This was my first air bnb experience and it was much above expectations. Heather is a warm person, you'll be pleased to stay in her home!

The place was great. Beautiful, sweet home and very clean, just like the photos showing on the listing. The 2 cats are so cute and very quite, thoguht I didn't see them most of the time. Heather was very nice, I had something scheduled during the time I supposed to check in, but she let me came to the house earlier to put my stuff first so I could leave and do my thing without carrying my luggage. It was very convenient to commute to downtown Seattle by bus, always one bus in 20 mins without traffic... with traffic probably just 30mins (I'm from LA so the traffic in Seattle seems very light to me :p) Highly recommend this place to whoever traveling on a buget and don't mind to commute a little bit. You'll be very satisfied.

It's obvious that Heather has put a lot of thought and energy into making this space comfortable for her guests. It's amazing how many amenities are here, while still having plenty of room and being just a sweet space. The bed was comfy, we appreciated the mini frig and kitchen supplies, and everything was spotless. It exceeded our expectations at a very reasonable price; we would definitely book it again!

Heather is the owner of a wonderful Seattle retreat! We had SUCH an excellent time! Both of us loved her interior design style and obvious sense of humor! We loved the little touches: the bar tools in the bathroom drawer, the plates and silverware in the bathroom closet. We both enjoyed her furniture and wall art. The house is in a pretty safe neighborhood in Lake City, and Lake City is an easy shot to Green Lake, Lake Union, and points north. We will happily stay at Heather's place next time we visit!

Heather's cozy, private master bedroom was perfect for my needs. I was visiting relatives nearby and was just looking for a clean and private spot to sleep when I returned late at night. Heather went far beyond my expectations. She transformed this simple space into a relaxing, spa-like environment, beautifully decorated, with high-end amenities. Luxurious bedding, mini-fridge, microwave, eating utensils, even Seattle guidebooks and tea and treats. I just hope it's available the next time I'm in town. Highly recommended.

Wonderful place to stay. Quiet. Close to downtown and the Lake City area is great just to walk around. Plenty of interesting restaurants to chose from.

Heather User ProfileHeather is a superhost.

I moved back to my house and home in Seattle in late spring of 2015 after three years in the Bay area of California. I've enjoyed (and still am) getting my yard back in shape and settling back into my wonderful home. I fixed up my guest suite, so I decided it would be fun to be an Airbnb host. I listed for a spring / summer season and it was great meeting new people and telling them about Seattle. After taking a break from hosting so a friend could live with me temporarily, I am ready to open my home to visitors once again. One of my cats, Pollock, has been especially excited about all the extra attention and is becoming quite the host himself!

I'm a longtime huge music fan and spend a lot of time (and money!) on shows and try to keep up with my 20 year old self. I enjoy traveling, film, art, gardening, entertaining and drooling over / collecting mid-century modern anything!

My home was built in 1949 and I like to maintain some of that era throughout it. I have eclectic taste and am constantly evoking and changing my space. I try to imagine a room where I would comfortable in while staying with a stranger and attempt to create a peaceful, welcoming, private suite for my guests. Small touches like open windows for fresh air, filtered cool water, fresh flowers and live plants, and things to read, look at and contemplate all add to the feeling and ambiance of the space.
