The space

Luxury and comfort is our goal. Both the queen & xl twin mattresses are high quality for maximum comfort. Soft towels are provided and little extras to make your stay special.
Our kitchen consists of an apartment sized refrigerator, sink, toaster, coffee pot, tea kettle, microwave and a commercial sized hot plate.

We have two adorable cats that you may see in the yard.

Although we welcome young children the apartment does not have childproofing items such as outlet covers, cabinet locks etc. We do supply games and have a play-n-pack available by request. Our backyard is available to run around in!

The apartment is private with its own entrance but it is attached to our home so you may hear/see us come and go.

We supply individual sized: shampoo, conditioner, lotion, soap & toothpaste.
We also provide as an option, large community-shared bottles of shampoo/conditioner, body wash, hand soap & shaving cream. We prefer natural products so that is what we usually provide in the bnb.

Interaction with guests

Spills happen so we are happy to launder a few items if needed. For larger laundry needs there is a small fee. No dry cleaning. An iron is provided in your apartment.

'Laura's Guidebook' on this page above 'The Neighborhood Map' suggests nearby attractions, grocery stores and restaurants. We are also happy to offer suggestions and answer your questions.

Other things to note

We provide a basket of snack items that will be in your kitchen such as ground coffee, tea, juice, organic fruit, organic hard boiled eggs, yogurt and granola. Please let us know if you have specific food allergies and we will try to accommodate. Do not hesitate to ask us for other items such as oil, butter etc.

Really enjoyed our stay in a delightful, beautifully decorated home. Highly recommend for a quiet retreat. It is well positioned for access to town. It was a 20 minute taxi ride from Seattle to the apartment but takes 45-60 mins by bus. A great place to relax.

Response from Laura:
Thanks, Kate! Yes, Uber/Lyft/taxi are great choices without a personal car. There are express buses to downtown shortening the trip but it does depend on time of day and where you catch the bus from. Puget Sound Trip Planner app is a great resource. Seattle is trying to improve mass transit but we have a ways to go ;)

The most well named of places, a beautiful, well designed and luxurious self-contained BnB in a lovely safe feeling part of Seattle, within walking distance of Puget sound through the park. Seattle is a huge and strung out city (distance wise), but public transport is easy to use, affordable and efficient. Uber and (URL HIDDEN) both operate in the area and provide reasonable prices to and from the airport. Try the Ballard area for restaurants away from the tourist crowds.

An absolute warm welcoming and well presented home; nice, clean, quiet and with an eye for all the little lovely extras. Home was spacious, parking available, public transport into Seattle city only few minutes walk away and in a really nice surrounded area.

I was blown away when I walked into Laura's place. The rooms are larger than I expected, it was tastefully decorated, and I'm a complete sucker for high ceilings. She has clearly paid attention to the little details, with everything a guest might need put in logical places. All communication was prompt and professional.

We had a very pleasant and quite stay at Laura's home. The neighborhood is friendly and very little of traffic, except for runners and walkers. Her home is secure and clean, with some nice extra touches. Bruce and Lisa

My family takes full advantage of living in the PNW! We hike, bike, enjoy the vast choice of restaurants and all of the great parks. When we do leave the PNW we prefer to stay in Airbnbs and we are excited to share our apartment with visitors traveling to Seattle. Rain or shin…
