Interaction with guests

Depending on your check-in time and my availability, I will either greet you in person or provide detailed instructions for access. I am always available over Airbnb messaging app, text messaging or phone.

Other things to note

- Happyhouse is in a gentrified and ethnically-diverse neighborhood of Dunlap/Rainier Beach ~ 8 miles to both downtown and the airport. Most of my guests like how convenient it is to walk (walkscore 75/100) and use public transit without paying a high price to stay at a more central place. No neighborhood in Seattle is absolutely safe. If you use light rail and walk home, do so before dark. If you will be late and alone, take Uber.
- My mom Suoi, from Vietnam is living with me. She speaks a little English but is very lovely and hospitable.
- I want to be sure it's going to meet your needs before you choose to book it. Please send me a message (when you book) with the secret code word "HAPPY" which is the feeling I want my guests to have when staying at Happyhouse - this will let me know you hung in there and read the whole thing.

Great place really near the Link Light Rail. Clean, comfy and quiet, it was perfect for our stay before an early flight. Would definitely recommend if you need to get to the airport but it was also still very easy to get into Seattle downtown.

Thaos house was very nice and clean and she was a friendly host. It had everything you need to make good meals in the kitchen and was perfect distance to the trains which take you into town. Bed a touch on the small side - wouldn't recommended for anyone over 6ft, but it was fine for us. Thanks for having us!

Thao's home is very neat, comfortable, and homey. It felt like I was sharing a space with a friend instead of a host/visitor situation. She offered suggestions and ideas for our stay in Seattle that my husband and I greatly appreciated. She had coffee/tea, and some small snacks available to us in her kitchen which while we didn't use we did appreciate.

I love how Thao decorated her place!! Amazing style and I had a wonderful stay for two nights. Didn't meet Thao in person since I arrived pretty late and checked out at 12PM. Her mom was very nice and friendly. I slept very well and the bed was so comfortable and the room was very quite. Entire place was extremely clean and organized. I also love Thao's collection of bookish and artwork. Definitely recommend!
