Beacon Hill cottage description

A lovingly built 200 sq. ft. Cottage with a deck overlooking a peaceful garden.
A gravel driveway leads you to a hidden urban oasis in the middle of a pleasant city block set back from the street.
Our SMALL ABODE is ideal for a SINGLE visitor or a COZY COUPLE. I make no false claims and many a cozy couple have enjoyed regardless. As one guest recently described, 'very European'
KEEP IN MIND, The Cottage is a BED WITH A BATHROOM. The DECK offers you a place to sit and enjoy the garden.
WE DO NOT OFFER A KITCHEN as our Cottage is intended for short stays but we do offer A HOT WATER KETTLE (we provide Starbucks instant coffee), SMALL FRIDGE and T.V.
We also provide WIRELESS INTERNET and PRIVATE PARKING in our driveway.
SMALL and COZY is what we offer and if you simply want a good night's sleep overlooking a pleasant garden, this is the place.
NO SMOKING/ NO SMOKERS, CHILDREN or PETS.
We are GAY, RACE and AGE FRIENDLY and expect that you are too!
I believe there is an unspoken language among respectful travelers that you treat someone's home as if it was your own...
There are vibrant neighborhoods surrounding us offering a great variety of food and entertainment: THE INTERNATIONAL DISTRICT, SODO, DOWNTOWN, GEORGETOWN, COLUMBIA CITY and CAPITAL HILL... All of these 'south of downtown' neighborhoods are great representations of Seattle and easy to access from BEACON HILL.
Please refer to the VIDEO link to give you a clear picture of the Cottage.
We sit in a prime location with transit and freeways in close reach. You can access I-90/I-5 easily from the Cottage.
The #36 bus is a walk across the street and will take you downtown in 20 min.
If you are familiar with South Seattle, we are a few blocks south of the V.A. Hospital.
If you are on FOOT and coming from the AIRPORT, jump on the LIGHT RAIL and get off at the BEACON HILL stop. From there, the Cottage is a short bus ride.
RENTING A CAR: 15-20 minute drive (depending on traffic) from the airport to the Cottage.
Driving Downtown from the Cottage is no more than 10 minutes but it depends on where you plan to go. Like any big city, you have to consider high volume traffic and parking.
ARRIVING ON AMTRAK: A simple walk up to JACKSON ST. and hopping on the #36 going south. It'll drop you within steps of the cottage.
Keywords: Cottage with bed and bathroom.

                  Owner info

                  About the owner: I love gardening and the cottage is surrounded by my efforts of creating a nest of greenery that puts the city at bay while you nestle in for a pleasant urban experience.

                  Why the Owner Chose Beacon Hill:
                  Seattle is a great City and I'm happy to show it off from the perspective of a proud home owner and a seasoned traveler. Seeing the interior of a place through a cozy neighborhood makes a more relaxing and memorable trip.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  We live near Jefferson Park which is an easy walk (1.5 miles) from the cottage. It has gone through an incredible renovation and expansion! We are proud to showcase a basketball court, 4 tennis courts, skateboard park and a children's play area. There are incredible views of the city and parts of the Olympic mountain range. As of 1/14, Jefferson Park Golf Course/Driving range has been torn down and a new facility is in the making.
