Descrizione

Cozy private downstairs basement room for the un-fussy solo traveler who just needs a simple place to park, sleep and shower in an updated mid-century private home with large yard under 4 miles away from downtown. Near light rail and bus stops. Free Wi-Fi. Small 3/4 bathroom is only shared if someone rents my other downstairs listing at same time as you do. Guest uses semi-private downstairs side entrance after check-in.

This listing is for a carpeted private downstairs bedroom with single bed and large built-in closet and lockable bedroom door. The bed has a 1" memory foam topper, 2 comforters, 2 pillows and an extra blanket. Includes one outdoor parking spot in driveway or along front of my house. The 3/4 bathroom (see photos) next to it is private unless another person books my other Rec Room listing. I do not charge an extra cleaning fee. My listings are convenient only if you have a car or are physically fit enough to not mind stairs or walking 8-10 blocks to use public transportation in a hilly neighborhood. My place is good for low-maintenance guests seeking an alternative to a hostel, people who would not feel safe staying in a house with no live-in owner shared with many strangers, or people who need a last-minute booking when they can't find anywhere else to stay, although I only accept people who can arrive on day of check-in between 3pm and 11pm and check-out by 11am.

Your room is your private space. You'll be using the semi-private downstairs side entrance after check-in (see photos). If you need to borrow my hairdryer, iron or ironing board, just ask. If the weather is good feel free to relax in the fenced backyard patio chairs under the oak gazebo surrounded by bamboo, apple, apricot, plum, and palm trees.

Shared use of upstairs kitchen dining table, microwave, toaster, fridge/freezer space, a drip coffee-maker, an electric tea-kettle, and a toaster. You can use my plates, bowls, glasses and utensils but no cooking with stove or oven permitted.

I am usually around to answer any questions since I live here full-time upstairs. I greet guests for check-in at the front door and show you to your room, give you the Wi-Fi password, explain house rules if you didn't read them, then you are free to be on your own. You can come upstairs for free coffee and tea in the mornings or to chat during the day or lounge in the living room which has a TV with limited basic cable and Roku. I usually have toast, fruit, or granola bars available for guests to snack on, but I do not provide any meals for lunch or dinner. If you are uncertain about anything please feel free to ask.

See map. I live in a residential, gentrified neighborhood close to but not IN downtown. I am about a 10-minute walk away from 2 link light rail stations (built in 2009) on Beacon Avenue South and Rainier Avenue South. For traffic-congested Seattle, it's one of the best affordable neighborhoods to commute to expensive downtown from. It takes an hour and 15 minutes walking to get from my house to Pike Place Market (under 4 miles away). I recommend walking down 12th Ave S and the Jose P Rizal Bridge with its panoramic view of the city to get there. Avoid walking around at night by yourself along Rainier Ave South.

Nearby places to eat are: the Oak Pub, Tippe & Drague Alehouse, Bar del Corso, Perihelion Brewery, and Cafe Bengodi. Other options are Thai Recipe Cafe, Mount Baker Deli, Traveler's Thali India House, Baja Bistro, Seattle's Best Pho & Deli. Philly's Cheesesteak, and local Philipino restaurants (Inay's, Kusina Philipina). Fast food places around here are Wendy's, Burger King, Taco Time and Subway. There is a 24-hour QFC supermarket on Rainier Ave and a Red Apple Market on Beacon Ave S. They are all about a 10 minute walk away from my house, up or down the hill. You can also go to Chinatown on the light rail and eat at the Asian food mall at Uwajimaya's if you're on a budget and of course the entire city is within a 10 mile range of here.

See local places on Yelp reviews under zip code 98144. Coffee places include: Compadre Coffee, Fresh Flours Bakery, Cafe Victrola, The Station.

Jefferson Park is a large park nearby featuring a view of the city, skateboard park, playground with zip line, tennis courts, and golf.

Guests often use Lyft, UberX or UberPool while here if they don't want to use the Sound Transit light rail, King County Metro buses, bicycle or walk.

BY LINK LIGHT RAIL:
My house is located between the Mount Baker Station and Beacon Hill Station (see photo of map). Beacon Hill Station is a 10-minute walk uphill to the west. Mount Baker Station a 10-minute walk downhill east. Use the online Sound Transit Trip Planner and plan your travel routes from the Mount Baker Station or Beacon Hill Station. Mount Baker Station is 3 blocks closer to my house but if you arrive there you are forced to climb a long, steep hill to my home, so I try to warn guests it is easier to arrive at Beacon Hill and walk down the hill to my house. It is easier to get on the train by walking downhill to Mount Baker Station from my house, and to come back by arriving at the Beacon Hill station and walking downhill to my house. Beacon Hill station is 25 cents closer to downtown and Mount Baker station is one stop closer to the airport. The Sea-Tac Airport is 12.5 miles away and it takes about 33 minutes to get from there to my house on link light rail (this includes the 10 min walk from the station to my home).

Link light rail extends from the Sea-Tac International Airport all the way to the University of Washington area, making 14 stops along the way. Link trains run every 6, 10 or 15 minutes depending on the time of day. Service is available from 5 a.m. to 1 a.m. Monday through Saturday and from 6 a.m. to midnight on Sunday and holidays.

BY BUS:
King County Metro buses leave from Beacon Avenue South and Rainier Avenue South. They tend to be slower than the link light rail due to traffic and frequent stops, but they are always above-ground. For more information on how to ride the bus look up King County Metro.

BY CAR:
I am conveniently located near major freeway on-ramps and off-ramps to I-5 and I-90 and arterial roads through downtown. If you are driving on I-5 it takes about 15-20 minutes to drive here from the airport, but traffic congestion may delay you. Look up the Washington State Department of Transportation for more info.

PLEASE NOTE:
If arriving by light rail at night or if you are carrying a heavy suitcase I recommend using Lyft or Uber for a ride to my home.

Sheets, pillowcases and towels washed for every new guest. Small 3/4 basement bathroom next to this room may be shared with 1 other Airbnb guest (male or female) only if my other downstairs listing is booked. This is a pet and child-free environment.

Aside from basic amenities such as sheets, bedding, towels, toilet paper my guests are provided with toothpaste, shampoo and body wash, etc. Nothing fancy, just the type of stuff I buy at the local convenience store and they are not brand new for each guest, they are shared.

Your Airbnb profile should have 4+ verifications, a clear, identifiable photo of yourself with eyes uncovered, school or employment sections filled out, real first and last name (not initials/nickname) and a short intro including your purpose of visit, type of vehicle you're bringing if any, and how much luggage. Traveler's insurance is recommended for all Airbnb guests as I cannot be responsible for any lost or stolen items.

IF NEW TO AIRBNB: Please look up how Airbnb works or be sure to read the Airbnb Help section so there are no misunderstandings that may lead to regret later. Please use the Contact Host button if you have a situation that will not easily conform to my listing's rules and check-in/check-out times to be sure I'll be okay with it first BEFORE booking.

RECOMMENDED: Bring items to ensure your own comfort such as sim cards, phone charger, toothbrush, ear plugs, sleep aids, house slippers, shower sandals, robe, etc. Dress warmly in layers and bring sturdy walking shoes and umbrella.

Seattle, Washington, Stati Uniti · Membro dal Luglio 2014

Welcome to my Airbnb! My house was built in 1958 and updated in 2002. My home is a mix of old and new. It has air-conditioning, a filtered-air furnace, a kitchen skylight, updated stainless steel appliances, hardwood floors, vintage tile, old furniture, storm doors, a fenced and gated backyard patio with an oak gazebo, bamboo, palm trees and 50's garage doors The extra rooms in my home are perfect for short-term travelers who don't already have friends or family in town to crash with, so long as my home's location, check-in/check-out times, amenities and house rules meet your needs. I enjoy coffee, cigarettes and conversation. I try to be clear about what I offer in my listing description as I am not out to con anyone into thinking this is a hotel or more than what it is - a clean, safe, simple place to sleep in a city where housing is rapidly growing more and more expensive. I was born and raised here and have traveled to just under 30 countries and almost every state in the USA. I don't get around much these days as I live/work from home as a rental property manager so I enjoy hearing the tales of the travelers who stay here if they have the time to chat. I spend a lot of time reading or on my computer in a room I use as my office in the house.
