About this listing

Completely renovated mother-in-law suite offers the best location to explore Seattle. Fantastic craft restaurants and bars just two blocks away. Want to hit the tourist sights? Take a 10-min bus ride to Ballard, Space Needle or Pike's Market.

The space

After a long day of exploring the city you can escape to your comfortable apartment, complete with private deck. Enjoy a nice glass of wine while listening to the zoo tunes. (In the summer months when the concerts at the zoo are going on you can hear them perfectly from our deck. In the winter you can hear the Russian Eagles and sometimes even the wolves)
Apartment Features: AC for the summer months (hint: most places in Seattle don't have AC so this is HUGE) and heated bathroom floors for the cold winter months. The efficiency kitchen offers the essential for cooking a meal at home: pots, pans, plates, forks, oil... you get the point. I want to point out that efficiency means that there is no oven, only a cook top and the fridge is counter height. But, really, with all the fantastic restaurants a block away, your only hardship may be storing all the leftovers.

*******Full disclosure**************. Unlike a soundproof hotel, this space is the bottom level of our home. The home was built in 1926 and even though we put the highest quality insulation in with the renovation, you can still hear footsteps from above - especially around dinner time (5:00-7:30 PM) and getting ready for work in the morning (6:00-7:30 AM). We do try to be very sensitive to our guests but our son is 19 months old so it's hard to keep a lid on that ball of energy.

Just a note: Kids are free and do not count as an extra charge.

Guest access

You will be provided a code to access to door. Arrive at your leisure.

Interaction with guests

We are here to help! We have been Airbnb hosts for 3 years and have enjoyed every minute of it. From hanging out together on our deck with a glass of wine or just advice on where to go in town. Just ask!

Maggie was great about communicating with us as we planned our trip. She met us upon our arrival and made sure we had everything we needed. The property is in a great location across from the zoo in a lovely neighborhood. The space is very cute and comfortable. The first morning there I made coffee using the coffee grinder and French press, then sat outside on the little deck and enjoyed the Seattle weather! Maggie gave us information about using the bus system and that came in really handy during our stay. The property is very comfortable and there are great places to eat within walking distance. I recommend Phinney Market a couple of bocks up the road! I would definitely recommend this property as a great place to stay when visiting the city.

This is a roomy and beautiful accommodation in a great neighborhood (Phinney Ridge) . It is within walking distance to restaurants, coffee shops and the zoo. We enjoyed meeting Maggie and little Arthur when they dropped in to leave some cream & sugar for our coffee and answer a question or two.

Really nice apartment right across the street from the zoo. A little from from the sites but fairly easy to access by bus - but do note to take the bus that goes along Phinney and not the express bus. We were warmly greeted upon arrival which was appreciated. Nice restaurant around the corner. As other reviews have noted, there is some noise from upstairs.

My girlfriend and I arrived at the location before our check in time, but Maggie was gracious enough to let us check in early. Because of the key code access, we didn't need her present to let us in. We loved the modern look of the place and it was very spacious for the two of us. The pictures accurately represented the advertised space and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Because the location was close to many great restaurants and within walking distance to a scenic lake, we had plenty to do in the area. Parking was not a problem and taking the bus into downtown was a piece of cake. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again!

Scott and I felt very welcomed by Maggie and Denis. they were very hospitable. The neighborhood was awesome and close to downtown as well as really close to a lot of local restaurants. The apartment had everything you needed so it was a definite win.

Maggie & Denis User ProfileMaggie & Denis is a superhost.

We are a young family who loves to travel. Our toddler has already been to 8 countries and that was just in the first year of his life.
We love being hosts! It is great to meet people from all over the world. I remember one Thanksgiving in Reston, when all the people around our dinner table were previous Airbnb guests.
When we can, we stay at Airbnb when traveling to get the local experience and a less expensive more efficient option.
