The rental is a spacious, well-lit mother-in-law apartment located in the basement of a 1920’s “Seattle box” style single family house. The house is located in the middle of the charming Wallingford neighborhood and is within easy walking distance of a grocery store, myriad restaurants, cafes and other services, and is also near Gas Works Park, the Burke-Gilman Trail, Green Lake, the Woodland Park Zoo, and the University of Washington. Downtown Seattle is 20 minutes away by bike or bus, with the bus stop being one block away. Free on-street parking is also available.
The apartment has a separate entrance along the side of the house, a well equipped kitchen, washer and dryer, wifi and AppleTV. The bedroom has a queen sized bed and the living room has a sofa bed. Note that although the ceiling has good soundproofing, you may hear an occasional low rumble from the three boys above! The property is kid-friendly, has chickens and a grey cat named “Cloud,” a basketball hoop, and a great deck with views of Lake Union and downtown Seattle.
No smoking in the unit or on the property; no pets.

My husband and I came to Seattle for the first time to visit our son who was here for the summer.
This was also our first airbnb experience. The stay at Dave’s place was everything we had hoped it would be. Dave’s airbnb is exactly as it is represented in context and pictures. It was clean, well lit, comfortable and convenient. The kitchen was very well stocked with quality pans, dishes, sharp knives, spices, teas, and everything you would need to fix your own meals. A quaint and delicious neighborhood coffee shop (Irwins) was just around the corner. Dave’s place was one block from the bus route, 4-5 blocks from downtown Wallingford with a great grocery (QFC), gelato shop (Fainting Goat) and restaurants. We even discovered the best foreign auto mechanic (Pacific Rim Automotive) 4 blocks away to fix our son’s car. We could see downtown Seattle from the deck and walk to Gas Works Park for an even better view. Dave offered bikes, helmets and locks, but after seeing the hills we might have to ride up to get home, thought better of it. It was a short hop to Fremont, Ballard and UW. Some reviewers mentioned noise from Dave’s busy family upstairs. We never were bothered by footsteps, vocal noise, TV or music from above. The whole neighborhood was exceptionally quiet. We also never had to search for a place to park, however we could have gone almost anywhere from Dave’s without a car. I really felt at home here. One of my favorite parts of the stay was being able to take my scraps to a compost bin or to feed the beautiful chickens housed in the back yard instead of throwing it all in the garbage to be hauled off to some landfill. We will be back someday and we would be very disappointed if we couldn’t stay here.
had a wonderful experience. A cool garden-level apartment during a hot summer. Great hosts, very considerate. The use of a bike was a huge plus. Wonderful neighborhood. I would definitely stay here again.
the unit was just like described and great for a 4 or fewer people (2 on a sleepr sofa) who need a private bathroom and kitchen and washer/dryer units. Unit was stocked well fro all your needs. great location for visits to Fremont, Gasworks Park, or U District neighborhoods. Hosts David and Nancy were very friendly! Highly recommended!
David communicated all the details of the apartment before our arrival, the apartment is in a lovely quiet neighborhood which was a few minutes walk to the park, and shopping area. The Bus stop to downtown is also one block away.
We thoroughly enjoyed out stay at David's apartment. It was equipped with everything advertised and more, from kitchen equipment, spices, coffee supplies and recycling bins to a good Apple TV service. We liked a keypad system to lock the door. The neighborhood is also perfect: close to the Burke-Gilman trail, the Wallingford business area, freeway access, and easy to get beyond to Fremont or the U. of Washington, but still quiet. We've used Airbnb a number of times, and this was one of our better stays.
What a great area to stay in. Grocery shop and restaurants nearby and only a short bus ride into downtown Seattle. Gasworks park is only a short stroll away. The apartment was exactly as described and very well kitted out. I was told the sofa bed also was comfortable.
Wonderful neighbor. Great for walking. David (host) responded quickly to any questions I had.
