About this listing
Enjoy this cozy Ravenna suite! You will have private access to our entire lower level, which sleeps two and includes a bedroom, kitchenette, office, bathroom, and den with pull-out couch. Enjoy our spacious back yard as well!
You will follow the lighted pathway along the side of our house into our spacious back yard. Under the patio awning you will find your own private entrance with a convenient keypad controlled door.
The entryway has a well-stocked kitchenette, much as you'd find in a hotel room. There is a mini-fridge, stocked with bottled water and some local beers for our 21-and-over guests to enjoy; a microwave; a Keurig machine and complimentary pods; and all the dishes and utensils you will need to enjoy simple meals and snacks. Sadly there isn't a sink, oven, or cooktop.
A cozy den awaits you next, with a small dining table, a mounted flat-screen TV and a new plush couch that pulls into a queen-sized bed. Sorry, we aren't cable subscribers, but the antenna works great and we get all the local broadcast channels. We have also added an Amazon Fire TV stick, which will allow you to access free streaming Amazon Prime TV shows and movies as well as other online content from your private accounts (Netflix, Hulu, etc.). This room also has a laundry closet for you to use at your leisure.
Off the den is a bonus room with a small desk, a closet that you're welcome to use, and a shelf full of travel guides, games, and a lending library. This would be a great place to set up your laptop if you need a quiet spot to work.
The main bedroom has lots of natural light and plenty of space to move into. The bed is a full size with a down comforter and quite possibly the most dreamy mattress ever made. Unpack your things into the dresser to make it feel like home!
Finally, the bathroom is newly remodeled with a large shower (no bathtub) and is stocked with plenty of extra towels, toiletries/shampoo/conditioner, and a hair dryer so you don't have to pack one of your own.
We live upstairs, but your space is completely private and separated from ours by a locking door. Please, make yourself at home! Use our wireless internet, laundry facilities, move into the closet or dresser, and enjoy the garden, flowers and open grass in the shared back yard. You might see us there, too! Depending on the length of your stay, we may have to coordinate a time when we can come down to use the laundry facilities.
Interaction with guests
Since we live upstairs, we'll most likely be around during your stay and you may hear us padding about overhead (or the occasional cry of our baby boy, Leo). We will let you take the lead of how much interaction you'd like. If you have any questions or concerns, we'll be right upstairs or a phone call away. Otherwise we'll leave you alone to enjoy your vacation.

Hi! We are John and Allison, two Seattle-loving urbanites who have just bought a home of our own in our favorite neighborhood. The only problem is that it's a bit too big for us at the current stage, so we've set up a mini hotel suite in our bright and cozy lower level for visitors to Seattle to enjoy. When we travel (to places like New York, San Diego, Berlin, Lisbon, Tanzania...), we always try to see and do things as the locals do. Our goal as hosts is to help you get to know the unexpected joys that Seattle has to offer. Come stay with us!
