This apartment is in the basement of our family home in the Maple Leaf neighborhood of North Seattle. We are close to public transit, 15 minutes from downtown and walking distance to shops and restaurants. Sleep comfortably in the quiet queen bedroom, relax in the living area while you watch your favorite Netflix or Amazon shows or cook in the small but efficient kitchen.

The space

The space is in the basement of our family home. We have two boys, ages 7 and 3. We use the space when we do not have guests, so there are toys available for children to use during the stay. They can also be put away if you would prefer to not see toys. There is a second, small bedroom across from the main bedroom which has a double bed. The door to this room is a sliding door with a window, so other guests can see through.

Guest access

The basement is yours during your stay and has a private entrance. We do use the laundry downstairs, but only will during your stay if you are here for 5 nights or longer and will make arrangements to make it convenient for you. You are, of course, welcome to use the laundry as well. The living area, bathroom and bedrooms are private. The backyard is available for you to use during your stay. We have plenty of street parking and one private parking space available for your use.

Interaction with guests

We are more than happy to help you with anything you may need during your stay. We can give you directions, tell you about the best take-out restaurants, lend you spices or condiments for cooking, or help you figure out where to go for a night out on the town. We have lived in this house for 4 1/2 years and in Seattle for 14 years.

Other things to note

Our children go to bed between 8 and 9 but have sound machines in their rooms so do not hear other sounds unless they are really loud. They wake up in the mornings between 7:30 and 8:30, but are usually not too loud, and in the bedroom downstairs they are hard to hear, though you may hear the sound of feet above you from time to time, and from the living area in the apartment you may hear their voices. The most noise can be heard from the living room downstairs, but much less from the bedrooms.

Megan's Seattle basement airbnb was just what my husband and I wanted for our last 2 days in the U.S. It was nice to have access to the kitchen, laundry and have the living space to enjoy. We did use the laundry facilities and enjoyed the use of the backyard to sit out with a drink on a beautiful afternoon. The 2 things that would have made our stay more enjoyable were -- having a toaster in the kitchen and for Megan to respond to the airbnb message that my husband sent on day 1 requesting help with how to use the ROKU TV remote to access Netflix and if there were replacement light bulbs for the back porch entry, fridge, etc. We felt unsafe returning home after dark one evening... we startled a raccoon in the backyard returning thru the private back entrance. It should be noted that there is no air conditioning or fans in this airbnb for hotter days.

This was the first stop on our visit from Europe, and what we needed the most was a quiet place to relax and work off jet lag. Megan's place was the perfect match! Quiet neighborhood, large living room, and lots of space for our young daughter to play, including a large back yard with a trampoline and other activities. There is a bus station 15 minutes away with connections to all other neighborhoods in Seattle.

Megan's place is very charming and in a nice North Seattle neighborhood. The apartment was clean and cute. This place is great for families with young children.

Megan's place is a great location, walking distance from the Northgate mall and just a 20-25 minute drive to downtown Seattle. She has 2 bedrooms with a kitchen for a steal of a price! If you have kids, this basement apartment comes with lots of toys to help entertain kids during the downtime hours. The basement apartment has a private entrance and is very private from the rest of the home. We loved our stay and would recommend anyone to stay as well.

Megan's place was amazing! It was pleasant and homey and was so easy to get to. She was great at communicating and you felt safe and secure around the area. It's right next a bus stop and a quick walk to a mall. You won't be disappointed staying here.
