Charming cottage/studio apt/ in a wonderful neighborhood of beautiful homes. Close to Lake Washington, Downtown, Capitol Hill, U of W, Seattle University, and Chinatown. Sleeps one person only. Boutique shops, coffee, restaurants, convenient bus lines 1/2 block away.

The space

Chic apartment furnished with art and antiques in a great quiet neighborhood of classic older homes. Cozy space with classic clawfoot tub. Daybed sofa sleeps one person only. No cooking in room, but Illy coffee and organic teas are available.

Guest access

I have lived in the main house for 35 years, and in Seattle all my life. I can help advise and recommend places to go in Seattle and the surrounding area. Happy to help!
No cooking or open flame in Cottage.

Interaction with guests

The studio apartment is detached from the main house where I live. I'm around the property most of the time, doing yard clean-up and enjoying the Summer, but have great respect for tenant privacy.

I had my first airbnb staying here. It was incredibly pleasant. The host was very friendly and great at communicating. They messaged me the morning after my first night to ensure everything was alright and continued to check-in through out my stay but not in an overbearing way. I would absolutely stay here again.

Alan was so absolutely cool. I had to drive 9 hours to get to Seattle and by the time I arrived I was exhausted. Alan gave me a beer and we talked about our lives, and it made me feel so relaxed. I knew I was in the right place. The room was small but perfect. There were great restaurants close by, the neighborhood was wonderful and there were lavender bushes everywhere, which were my mother's favourite plant. If you are on your own and want to check out the city. This is a perfect place to stay.

Alan was a fantastic and generous host. He had lots of great recommendations for things to see and eat in Seattle and the area. The location was on a quiet residential area so it was very peaceful and private. There was a bus stop that was a minute walk and it took me very quickly to Capitol Hill and Downtown. Highly recommend a stay in Alan's backyard cabin.

I had such a wonderful stay in this cute little studio. Alan was a very gracious host and was more than happy to provide recommendations for food and coffee shops. The location is excellent - a short walk to many shops and restaurants and very close to the bus that can take you downtown. I highly recommend staying here if you are looking to take a little getaway for some "me-time." Thanks again, Alan! I'm sure I will be back! :)

Alan was a great host. The neighbourhood was convenient and very safe and pleasant. Great local restaurants and safe. He gave a great cafe recommendation which I enjoyed. I would definitively recommend this place if coming to Seattle.

Alan's place was truly a perfect residence for a single guest. The back-house is done in such a way that you have total privacy, without having to pay the price of renting an entire house. Its in a gorgeous neighborhood, literally a walk away from lake Washington, and a 5-10 minute drive from anything in the city. What really blew me away, however, was the way that Alan modeled the space. It's not large, but the use of space is perfect, everything was planed in such a way to maximize space and comfort. It feels like a very recent re-model, all the appliances are beautiful and new, you have your own bathroom, great bathtub/shower, sink, mini-fridge, and desk, he even sets you up with a coffee/tea bar, AND you have full use to his great backyard/patio. This is to say nothing of the fact that Alan was a gracious host, was great with communication, made everything easy and seamless from check in to check out. If your looking for a calm, relaxing stay in a gorgeous neighborhood, with all the amenities, your going to be a happy camper.

Alan was a very gracious host. He was available when I arrived and showed me the features of the unit. I was offered to participate in a long standing neighborhood movie tradition, and he even offered to help me transport my newly purchased bike to the train station on the last day. He was available if needed, but also respected my privacy which I appreciate about hosts.
