Your guest suite is your home away from home, secluded feeling but minutes away from all the amenities and activities you could want. You will find easy street parking in the uncrowded neighborhood. You are steps away from public transportation, taking the Metro bus to the University District, Seattle Center, Northgate, Ballard or downtown in minutes.

About the Owner

Your host, Ron, has decades of experience in hospitality, as the owner of one of Seattle's most beloved restaurants. I expanded into home renovation during 2010 as general contractor as my wife and I brought our 1967 home into the 21st century. We updated every inch of the home and are comfortable on the first and second floors of this three story home. We especially love the location, the feeling of being in the forest as we gaze out on the wooded garden and watch the birds.

Outstanding rental!

  • 5 of 5
This unit was the last stop on our 3-week trip and we were happy to land in such a wonderful spot for our few days in Seattle. Everything you could possibly want or need has been thought of in this rental. It is clean, modern, comfortable, and has many wonderful amenities to make your stay relaxing and perfect. The photos portray the unit exactly as it is, though they don't do a good job of conveying just how quiet and comfortable the unit is. We enjoyed talking with Ron and were glad to have a local contact for questions, but he and his wife were never intrusive while we were there.

The unit is down two levels from the street level so you must be able to navigate stairs to stay here. The covered parking was a nice perk on the one morning it rained. The backyard is like a park and is wonderful for morning coffee or evening meals.

The property is an easy drive into downtown Seattle and it looked to be convenient to the bus line as well, though we did not try the bus system since we had a full agenda each of the days of our stay.

We loved this place!! Great location and beautifully decorated with a wonderful attention to details. The host was very helpful with recommendations for places to eat and it even came equipped with a deck of cards for spectacular places to walk/hike. We would definitely stay there again. Thanks Ron (Paul ;-)

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful place to stay while spending a week in Seattle. The apartment was clean and very comfortable. We loved watching the birds and squirrels in the back yard and enjoyed the fire pit at night. We did not have a car and we were able to walk or take a bus everywhere. The Burke Gillman trail access was just around the corner and was great for walking, running or biking. Ron was a wonderful host, always available to answer any questions. We will definitely be returning.

Just What The Doctor Ordered

  • 5 of 5
We recently found ouselves in need of a place to stay in the University District that was near to UW Medical Center. This cozy, very well appointed and immaculate apartment fit the bill perfectly. We originally booked for four nights but due to some complications we needed an extra night. Ron, the owner who lives upstairs, was very gracious to let us extend our stay by one night leaving him only one day to ready this unit for the next renters. This property is perfectly situated in the north end for virtually anything in the Seattle area. Ron, the owner, was availbale if needed but otherwise left us to ourselves. I would recommend this property to anyone needing something in this area with easy access to just about anything, in our case, the UW Hospital. The only caveat is that you do need to descend two flights of stairs to get to the apartment. This was not a problem in the slightest for us but, if stairs are an issue, might not be the right property for you.

The property has everything one could think of. The location on the Burke-Gilman trail is outstanding and the Metropolitan Market is only minutes away. The owners are most accommodating. Five stars!
