About this listing

The space

Chic apartment furnished with art and antiques in a great quiet neighborhood of classic older homes. Cozy space with classic clawfoot tub. Daybed sofa sleeps one person only. No cooking in room, but Illy coffee and organic teas are available.

Guest access

I have lived in the main house for 35 years, and in Seattle all my life. I can help advise and recommend places to go in Seattle and the surrounding area. Happy to help!
No cooking or open flame in Cottage.

Interaction with guests

The studio apartment is detached from the main house where I live. I'm around the property most of the time, doing yard clean-up and enjoying the Summer, but have great respect for tenant privacy.

Allen was a great host and blew my expectations out of the water. He clued me in on local attractions and the bus routes that were close by to make my trip as simple and comfortable as possible. His place is located just east of Seattle and took no more than 15 mins to get downtown and was a short walk to the trails at Lake Washington. Thanks for your hospitality Allen, you're the man!

Alan's room was exactly what I was looking for when I came to Seattle.  The neighborhood was quite & safe, and the room was an efficiency with plenty of room.  Alan was also great! Very easy going during check-in after I was delayed, and he was readily available if I needed anything (ended up needing an iron last minute).  Will definitely be coming back next time!

Stop looking. This is it! I had pretty high hopes about Alan's place, and it exceeded them. It's a wonderful little oasis in a beautiful neighborhood, and so convenient. The bus that goes downtown stops at the end of the street, and the walk to Madison Park should not be missed. I was happy to have a place to myself, and it was equally as pleasant to sit in the perfect back yard and read or talk to Alan. The efficiency is beautifully decorated, well-appointed, the tub is heavenly, and the daybed very comfortable. The little cooler fridge was perfect to keep water, yogurt and fresh fruit in. Lastly, I loved Alan, who is not only a terrific host, but a very friendly, interesting and helpful host.

Alan is not only the perfect host, but he goes the extra mile to make sure that you have whatever you need during your stay. He's very easy-going, knowledgeable and his own person. I wish I'd had more time to chat with him. Next time!

The stay was wonderful! The studio was an absolute gem in the heart of Madrona. Chic is the perfect word to describe it, and it had everything I could need. Alan was also the perfect host and offered to get coffee and give me tips about the neighborhood.

Fantastic little hideaway in the city. Quiet place, very private being detached from the main house, and well furnished with a desk, couch, with its own bathtub and sink. Would highly recommend it and wish i could have stayed longer! Host was prompt, straight forward, and nothing was unexpected.

Alan was so absolutely cool. I had to drive 9 hours to get to Seattle and by the time I arrived I was exhausted. Alan gave me a beer and we talked about our lives, and it made me feel so relaxed. I knew I was in the right place. The room was small but perfect. There were great restaurants close by, the neighborhood was wonderful and there were lavender bushes everywhere, which were my mother's favourite plant. If you are on your own and want to check out the city. This is a perfect place to stay.
