Our downstairs bedroom/bathroom is spacious and private, with faux wood-paneling and a bit of sunlight, and a sitting area. We're about 3/4 to 1 mile to Alki Beach and half a mile to the California/Admiral intersection of W. Seattle. Short-term stays best.

The space

Welcome to West Seattle! We've got a great guest room/shower bathroom combo with private patio entrance and street parking to share. While you are in our home, we stay upstairs and leave the daylight downstairs to you, more like you have an accessory unit than a room in the midst of the space we're using. The large room has 70s-style wood paneling, a comfy queen bed and sofa, flat-screen TV/DVD player, and a faux fire crackling in the (real) fireplace. People report sleeping well in our cool quarters.

We've been offline for the first part of 2013 while completing a re-landscaping project to install a new patio, outdoor lighting, walkways, and other hard-scaping at the house, with outdoor bench seating and a bar counter outside for a great outdoor room/picnic experience.

You'll find a coffee maker in the room and a fridge in the adjoining garage where you can chill snacks and drinks as you wish, but no real cooking facilities. We'll provide breakfast and some snacks -- if/when you book I'll discuss any special diets etc. re: breakfast. Full disclosure: The bedroom and bathroom are fully remodeled, but to go between them you do pass through a space which is less aesthetically pleasing (exposed joists etc.), i.e. laundry room/basement.

Travelers, I generally can't accept reservations less than 24 hours before you plan to arrive. Because I am away from home frequently myself and want guests to experience a properly prepped space, same-day and night-before requests are hard to accommodate. Also, no pets. Thanks!

Location: We're in the Admiral area of W. Seattle. Street parking is easily available, but if car-free we're near buses to downtown (M56/57, a 15 minute ride) and the shuttle to the West Seattle water taxi. We're a little over a half mile from Alki Beach, and a pleasant half-mile walk to the California/Admiral intersection where you'll find several restaurants, a wine bar and pubs, 2nd run movie theater, yoga studio, day spa, bagel shop, pizza takeout, two grocers, nice viewpoints and parks, Schmitz Park nature preserve, and a community center with an outdoor track.

No pets, no indoor smoking (outdoors OK). The room does have a (non-pull out) sofa if a third person wanted to sleep on it, but it's really best suited for a single or a couple sharing the bed. For longer stays (a week or so), help yourself to the washer/dryer.

Nice private room and basement floor. Felt like an own apartment. Quite area with walking distance to beach and water taxi down town. Easy to get instructions from Jane about the key and everything when arriving as she was not at home. We are happy and our stay all worked out perfect.

The place is located in a very quiet neighborhood, the room itself is very decent, clean and organized. Lovely snacks and food we're prepared. Communication was smooth, definitely will book again

Jane's home is quaint & quiet. At times you can hear the happy squeals of the neighbor kids, but that to us is a pleasant sound. Lots of books & games if that's what you enjoy. Basic amenities. Bathroom is small but adequate. It is separated from the bedroom by a family room & short hallway. Jane welcomed us warmly, & asked about the wedding when we returned. Nice to have met you,Jane!

Jane's place is very spacious -- we appreciated being able to have a place to sit on the couch, read and stretch in the mornings. It was perfect weather and we also read in the back yard, and managed to take a long walk down to Alki Beach -- and, to enjoy the beautiful sunset from the end of her block overlooking the beach.

Jane is a lovely host. After check in she even offered me a ride to the water taxi. I was very busy on this trip and really just needed a cozy get away at night. The room has a delicious couch if you like to cozy up in front of the tv. I'm very particular about beds and was pleasantly surprised to sleep quite well in this one. This was my first visit to Seattle and I'm glad I chose West Seattle as a home base for the week. Jane's place is walking distance to coffee shops and a few restaurants. After that I relied mostly on uber. Great trip, great stay! Thank you Jane!

Comfortable space to stay in for our first stay in Seattle. Communication with Jane was very quick in terms of response time which was very helpful and we had a great time.
