About this listing
We proudly offer our clean, stylish lower-level apartment, located right in the heart of U-District/Bryant neighborhood in NE Seattle. 2Bed/1Bath + full size kitchen + W/D. Walk to UVillage shopping area, UW campus, medical centers, and much more.
The apartment was built in 2010 with great attention to detail: Drawer-style F&P dishwasher, elegant glass shower and heated bathroom floors, and a 42” Plasma screen connected to Apple TV and Netflix. The outfitted galley kitchen is full-size with a gas range and microwave.
The apartment is quite spacious & tall: over 800sqft., with a full-height ceiling - so this doesn’t have the claustrophobic quality of many basement apartments. Right now it is set up for one couple in a queen bed. The bedroom is quiet, with a good mattress. The 2nd bedroom is set up as an office, including a futon-style sofa that opens flat, with bedding provided. It is worth noting that access to the bathroom is through the other bedroom.
The space includes everything you'll need for a short or longer stay, including a washer/dryer.
There is free wireless internet throughout.
The apartment is no smoking/no pets - so anyone with allergies should do well here.
This is the lower level of our home, and guests have a separate, private entrance. The door features a keypad bolt, and there is a short indoor staircase down to the apartment.
Interaction with guests
Independent check-in via the keypad lock is the norm, but we also make an effort to greet all of our guests at some point. We live right upstairs if you have any questions or concerns, and we are also available by phone and email during your stay. Beyond that, we base our interaction level on our guest's needs and wishes.
Both Amy and Riley have been to 40+ countries, 40+ states, and way more than 40 music festivals. We love meeting people from around the world, and hope that we’ll have some time to connect while you are in town!
You'll likely find yourself spending most of your Seattle time outside the house! Our home is within a 2min walk to the Burke Gilman Trail (Seattle’s bicycle thoroughfare), and a 5min walk to the nearest Bike Share hub - where you can rent a bike and helmet, or return a rented bike 24/7.
Zoka, one of Seattle’s best coffee roasters is a 2min walk away. Ravenna/Cowan park, a 58-acre gem with a playground, public tennis courts and walking trails, is only a 5-min walk away. You can rent a canoe or a kayak at the nearby UW Waterfront Center.
We’re also within a 5min drive of the University of Washington campus, Seattle Children's Hospital, UW Medical Center Hospital, Husky Stadium and much more.
7min drive to I-5.... where it's 3 exits to Downtown (a 15-20 minute drive).
Metro bus access is within 3 blocks.
There is street parking at our place for guests with a car. Parking here is by permit (we provide a pass with $100 security deposit) so if guests bring 2 cars, one car will have to park on another block over night.
Other things to note
PLEASE NOTE: The $100 security deposit is mostly for our parking pass (to ensure guests don't leave with it). Parking in the 'hood is generally fine. on Husky Football game days, a parking pass is required. The other 357 days a year, its 2 hour parking that is infrequently checked. but we do have a parking pass that you can hang from your mirror to ensure you don't get a ticket.

My husband Riley & I are seasoned travelers who also love films, books, cooking, baseball and the outdoors. Riley owns a film-television-video production company, and Amy is an interior designer. Being self-employed entrepreneurs has given us the freedom to pursue an array of personal interests, and to see the world. Although we've traveled to more than 40 countries, our hearts are in the glorious Pacific Northwest, which we feel lucky to call home. Hosting and being guests through Airbnb are among the ways we embrace creating community! We look forward to meeting you.
