The space

My home is less than 12 minute drive to Seattle or Bellevue.

Easily accessible by car, its 2 minute drive to either directly into the I-90 freeway OR to the Mercer Island Park & Ride to take the bus.

It is a great retreat from a busy day, whether you are here to attend a Sporting Event, business meeting, convention, visiitng family or just vacationing.
Kick your shoes off, relax . Put your feet up. , pet the dog, see whats in the fridge. Most of all, make yourself at home.

Make yourself at home; My Nightly rate includes use of hall bathroom, washer/dryer, kitchen, hi-speed Wi-fi, internet, cable and tv.
Feel free to cook on the gas stove in my remodeled kitchen, bar b q outside, take a dip in my mini-spa on the patio or just take a walk, relax, read & unwind.

Interaction with guests

I interact as much or as little as my guests desire.
I am typically close by, or just a phone call away tutoring, dog sitting or involved in community activities.
When out of town I have a close friend substitute in to host and greet you and be available 24hrs a day to help as needed.

Other things to note

My dogs name is Jadey, he is 11+ years old & moving slowly these days with bad arthritis in his knees.
He will bark LOUDLY upon your arrival, you will be welcomed as his best friend within moments.

YOU determine how much interaction YOU prefer with him by either encouraging him with words and attenrion
Easily DISCOURAGE HIM with a firm "no", "leave it", ignoring him or a quick swish in the air with your hand and he will leave you alone.

Me and my brother had a great stay on Mercer Island. While sadly Lyne was out of town during our stay, Joel took great care of us. We could use the whole house, including the hot tub in the garden. All in all a great experience, would definitely book again.

Lyne and Michael were warm and welcoming hosts. Their home is beautifully furnished and the room was comfortable and peaceful. They were friendly and delightful company, and helped me feel completely at home. My experience as their guest was beyond my expectations, and helped make my trip more enjoyable and memorable

Lyne's place is amazing! The room and bed are really nice and so is the rest of the house. Clean, cosy and with everything you need. They really open up the house making you feel at home and Lyne, Michael and JD (the dog) create such a nice environment. My wife and I stayed in their house because we will move to the area in the near future. Lyne and Michael were really helpfull with all questions we had.
