Guest access

We have a lock box and will send you the code approximately a day in advance.

Interaction with guests

I follow the lead of each guest. I really enjoy helping our guests get acclimated to Seattle and our eclectic neighborhood. We've housed guests just off the plane from Europe and Africa, and helped them launch them into their own homes, when possible driven some to the airport, had shared meals or a glass of wine, even let one borrow our car while others just come and go as they please.

Other things to note

It should be noted that the this is a mother-in-law basement apartment under the main house that we no longer rent via Airbnb. Both spaces are completely separate, except for the laundry room. Both spaces can be locked separately from one another.

Kristi's place was amazing! We have three kids and even in a small space this house had everything we needed for it to instantly feel like home. Kristi was always helpful whether I needed a cup of sugar or directions to the best parks. Her children were always so well-behaved and they were like sibling to my littles while we were there. This location is great. Super close to the grocery store, restaurants, the school, and the bus stop. We stayed here for three months during the summer and couldn't be happier with our choice.

Very convenient location (near campus, buses, I-5, restaurants and shops), and a comfortable space all to ourselves. We're sort of quiet introverts, and Kristi was great about letting us do our own thing.

The location of this place is amazing!! It was convenient access to most place in the city. You are basically on campus at UW. Parking can be a little tricky but not unlike any other near college neighborhood.

I stayed in this apt for one month. It is a very beautiful apt. So cozy. So homely and very well decorated ( paintings, books, special ceramic bowls etc) .i was schocked to see the very well equip house and kitchen ( it has everything- extra blankets , throw blankets, pillows bed sheet, extra bed, washing machine dryer fridge coffee machine utensils oven cutlery all kinds of glasses plates micowave oven mixer etc ) Kristi was very sweet to upgrade the TV channels. Wifi worked well . The soft early morning piono practise and steps made me feel a part of their house even if I was staying below. Kristi , her husband and kids are very friendly and hospitable. I spend couple of evenings with them in their backyard enjoying the beautiful flowers , bushes and tress. 10 min walk to my daughters dorm, 5 min walk to the bus stop and the grocery store was very convenient. My stay in Seattle was pleasurable thanks to her (she answered all my queries promptly) . IT WAS A HOME AWAY FROM HOME.

Everything was as Kristi described it. The lockbox was easy to figure out, the place was immaculate, with lots of airy space to call my own during a grad school program at UW. Just a 15 minute walk to the main campus gate, I was thrilled that I opted to stay here and not in the dorms. Comfy bed, clean hot shower (with shampoo/conditioner and Agraria luxury soap), fluffy towels, an equipped kitchen and desk for working, and lots of privacy in a Seattle garden setting. Easy walk to UDistrict or UVillage. The WiFi was fast and never went out, the laundry right outside the interior locked basement door was handy, and the sounds of the family upstairs going about their daily lives was a comfort as I was missing my own for 2 weeks. Would love to stay here again, and Kristi + her family are sweethearts. Thanks for a great stay, Kristi!
