The space

Queen bed in private, fully equipped and furnished room with full closet. One bus stop from the Seattle Art Museum, 3 miles from the stadiums, 3 miles from Alki Beach. Easy access to airport or train, hospitals, ferries, universities. On bike trail to downtown and Alki Beach. Walking distance to an Uptown coffee, small music venue/bar, great gym that offers day passes. Fun view of Harbor. Wi-Fi. Parking on the street is easily accessible.

Bathroom for this room is shared with host. I am not a power user and often go to my friend's townhouse 2 doors down if needs overlap. You'll have access to kitchen living room and dining room. The kitchen is stocked for do-it-yourself simple snacks and continental breakfast. Refrigerator, oven, dishwasher and shelf space. There’s also a library with comfy reading chair, elliptical trainer, printer and document shredder.

The neighborhood is in the northwest corner of West Seattle, right by the West Seattle Bridge, so very close to SODO --

CARS: We're one block from elevated roadway, so you'll access downtown, I-5, I-99 and 99 without any traffic lights.

BUSES: because the neighborhood hosts the first stop after/before elevated roads to Downtown Seattle, you are one stop away from Seattle Art Museum, the downtown bus tunnel, Pike Place Market and the WAMU building. We walk two blocks to stops for any of six different buses headed to Downtown, the stadiums, West Seattle Junction, hospitals, Alki Beach, Seattle Center, Train station, etc. The bus costs about $2.25 -- much cheaper than downtown or stadium parking costs.

BICYCLES: We are right on the bike trails to Downtown and Alki beach, each about a three mile ride. Two blocks of our hill are steep, but I can show you short cuts that limit your hill climbing -- and on some occasions I will offer you a ride up the hill. Many neighbors bike to work downtown. Our drive to the airport is on the lesser used 509, so it tends to be 15 minutes any time of day.

Things to always bring to Seattle, regardless of season: raincoat, comfortable shoes for any hills you encounter and sunglasses. Feel free to ask for advice on climbing, hiking, parks, scuba diving spots OR Seattle's definition of business casual.

As a host I do my best to be affirmative, resourceful and helpful, if there's something you want or need that hasn't occurred to me, let us know. If we can offer it, we will!

To meet my condo association rules, we must have guests complete the condo association's roommate forms and we are required to run a criminal background check at our expense. It is not a lot of work, but we have to do it before we can allow you to stay. Feel free to ask questions about this.

We do not allow smoking, drugs or weapons in the house. Moderate drinking is allowed. While marijuana is legal in the state, to assure the comfort of all, we don't allow its use it in the house.

For everyone's safety, we do not have or allow weapons in the home.

At the request of the condo association, guest privileges do not include use of the driveway for motor vehicles. There is ample free on-street parking. If you have something heavy you need to take in or out of the house, make sure the host is with you.

The condo association expects all households to allow the quiet enjoyment of our neighbors. Please observe quiet time between 10 pm and 10 am, and when you are aware that housemates or the immediate neighbors may be sleeping.

Finally, there are plenty of neighbor kids around. Please make sure a parent is present before introducing yourself to a child and if approached by a child whose parent doesn't know you, ask if his or her parent is around.

If you want to get to know the neighbors, feel free to introduce yourself as "Anni's housemate" to adult neighbors, but you need not feel obliged to do so.

Great host, very friendly and very accomodating to everything. The house was comfortable and quiet, and my room was very clean and well kept on arrival!

What do I miss most about Seattle? Living with Anni. She's real, and funny, and just wait until you get her talking! She's one of the smartest people I have ever met. Living with Anni was a great joy. She will give you your space when you need and is there to grab wine or dinner with too. Live with Anni! It's an awesome experience. ;)

Anni was the epitome of a wonderful host. She was extremely welcoming and kind, truly making us feel like her home was our home during our stay. Everything was clean as well as inviting, and we never had an issue during our 6 months with Anni. It truly felt like a home away from home, and we are lucky to have Anni as one of our friends.

This was my first AirBnB experience and I might be a bit spoiled now. Annie was an exceptionally gracious host and her home was comfortable and conveniently located. She made certain I was very well taken care of and gave me lots of insight on everything in the city from restaurants to driving routes to avoid traffic. I'm staying in Seattle, so it's been great making a new friendship that will last for a long time.

I can completely recommend Anni's house. She was a great host and would really go out of her way to make her guest feel welcome. As described, the house is a couple of blocks away from the bus stop and commuting to downtown is fast and easy. Anni has had guest for some time now so she knows how to organize things with them. There were no issues during the summer and things ran smoothly. Very recommended!

I lived in Anni's townhouse for 3 month and I enjoyed every minute of it. From the beginning, when she picked me up from the airport, we got along great and she didn’t spare any effort to make my stay magnificent: We made city tours, she provided all kinds of information about Seattle and surroundings as well as activities, helped me with assignments for my study and to improve my English skills, hosted a thanksgiving dinner and even went whale watching with me. I can highly recommend to pick Anni’s House because you will not only get a clean and tidy place to live, you will also find a new friend! Furthermore, I want to mention that the room is perfect for any duration of stay as it is light and has everything you need. The bus station, that takes you downtown directly, is just a 5-minute walk down the street and the overall location is nice and quiet. All in all, choosing to stay here was the best decision I could have made, because Anni mad my time in Seattle more amazing than I could have expected.

Anni User Profile

I enjoy welcoming people into my home in an unpressured way. I want them to have a place to relax, to focus on the things that have brought them to Seattle and to know I am present as a resource. I have some ability to communicate in French, Italian, and Spanish, though not fluent.

Interests include hiking and backpacking, the Fine Arts, anthropology, native plants, vegetable gardening, great food, adventure travel, international development, theology and organizational development.

5 things I would rather not live without: coffee, fruit, family and friends, intellectual stimulation, time outdoors.

Favorite films Serious: Bleu, the Red Violin, Frida. Lighter fare: The IT Crowd (very goofy british comedy).
