Cutest picture I could find. I'm new to hosting but have been a guest many times and have always had memorable experiences all over the world. Since I haven't traveled as much as I want to, by hosting I'm bringing the travelers to me. It's a win, win. I'm the mother of three adult children, graphic designer, athletic and learn something new most days. Design creeps into everything I do whether it's cooking, baking, gardening or designing this little jewel you see in front of you. I've also lived in Seattle most of my life and have seen this town grow into a vibrant and cultural city with endless places to explore. Since I live upstairs I'm usually available for recommendations or questions but I also understand the need for your privacy. No hovering although my kids may beg to differ.
Sabina purchased this Apartment in 1983
Why Sabina chose Ravenna
The living/dining/kitchen area with it's open floor plan feels spacious with plenty of room for travelers to maneuver themselves and their bags. The living room couch folds out to accommodate 1-2 guests. Light filters though from a southern exposure reflecting on the buttery warm Eucalyptus floors. The decor is a blend of old and new with contrasting colors and textures though out the apartment. You have a private entrance through french door that can open fully for easy patio access. The kitchen is modern and efficient with enough room for two or three cooks . It has a full size gas cooktop, oven, refrigerator (stocked with condiments), dishwasher, toaster, microwave and electric kettle, freshly ground coffee and often a little tasty surprise. The bathroom is smallish with a retro blue sink and Mondrian inspired tile work. NOTE: ENSUITE BATHROOM. The bedrooms are cozy with views to the garden. The first bedroom which I call the yellow room has a queen bed with down comforter and pillows. The second bedroom with attached bathroom has a full size futon with a 4 "memory foam topper. There's Wifi, a TV (no cable), DVD player, movies and a selection of interesting reads. Guests have access to the laundry room by request. The entire stone patio is for guests use but please ask before entering the rest of the garden. I'm usually available for giving a tour and will happily share my fresh berries when in season. The Keyless lock makes check-in smooth and easy.
What makes this Apartment unique
I love meeting new people and hearing their stories. Since I live upstairs I'm usually available to answer questions or recommend the best coffee shops close by or tips about what to do on a sunny day in Seattle or what to do on a rainy day in Seattle. Hint: its the same. People know each other in this neighborhood. They care about each other and they talk to each other. Most of us have been here for many years and it shows. We welcome newcomers and guests. Neighbor looks out for Neighbor here....

We just stayed a short night. The only issue we had was that there was only one bathroom to Access through the first bedroom.
Everything about this stay was easy and simple - just how it should be!
This place is a gem of serenity. Besides just being a great space, the yard outside is so nicely maintained - my only regret is that I couldn't stay longer! We had everything we needed there and Sabina was just a phone call away for anything. If I ever make it back to Seattle, I'd definitely try to stay here again.
Sight seers in Seattle
The property was very clean. It was a lovely hide away. The patio was great! I sat out there mornings and evenings.
One night stay after flying into Seattle
Convenient access, clean and comfortable accommodations for 3 travelers just arriving into the Seattle area. Sharing the bathroom off of the one bathroom was unusual but not a problem for us. Cute apartment, big kitchen. Thanks for hosting us!
Comfort and convenience in Seattle
Sabina is a very accommodating host with a lovely home. The apartment is clean and functional and a very short drive from downtown Seattle. A great home away from home.
