About this listing

Charming cottage/studio apt/ in a wonderful neighborhood of beautiful homes. Close to Lake Washington, Downtown, Capitol Hill, U of W, Seattle University, and Chinatown. Sleeps one person only. Boutique shops, coffee, restaurants, convenient bus lines 1/2 block away.



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.

The neighbourhood

Some of the most beautiful homes in Seattle nearby, great walks in nearby Arboretum, Lake Wahington, and easy access to everything Seattle has to offer.

Getting around

Bus stop is 1/2 block away, and will take you to central downtown, near the Seattle Art Museum, Pike Place Public Market, and Pioneer Square in 20 minutes.

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.

Probably my best AirBnb experience. Everything in and around the room-studio is beautiful from the deco to Alan's garden, neighborhood and lake nearby. Perfect peace and quiet. Alan's taste and care as a host are flawless. The place is usefully connected to downtown by bus line#2 which stops right around the corner, comes often and gets you there in 20 minutes. Madrona is a lovely part of Seattle with enough nice eating and drinking spots to make you happy on a night you want to stay put. Highly recommended.

Alan was always communicative and welcoming. The place is a gem and better than the pictures suggest. Gorgeous neighborhood and garden and all the details are attended to in the studio. Perfect for a single person. Highly recommended!
