University District house description

Instead of staying in a hotel, consider staying as our guests in our spacious daylight basement apartment. You'll feel right at home! Close to major bus lines and the University of Washington. Our luscious backyard is an urban oasis!

The Space
Our home has a lovely daylight basement apartment with a nice bedroom, kitchenette, 3/4 bathroom, and separate entrance that opens onto an Italian-style piazza. There is a large living room with a sleeper sofa and comfy reading chair. Laundry room is shared. Kitchenette has everything you'll need for cooking away from home. If not, we're just upstairs and happy to share. Plus Trader Joe's and Safeway are within walking distance, and Whole Foods is 3/4 of a mile away.

Located in a great Seattle neighborhood, this unique offering from a University of Washington professor and family is a great opportunity for visiting scholars or graduate students, folks visiting Seattle for a short-term stay, and is ideal for families as the living room has many toys they could use.

The home location is only 5 minute walk from the 45th entrance of U of W, 5 minute drive from Children's Hospital or University Village, 10 minute drive from downtown Seattle and near many major bus lines.

Restaurant options are plentiful! Some of our favorites are Cedar's Mediterranean Restaurant, Delfino's Chicago Style Pizzeria, Tempero do Brasil, Pair, Agua Verde, and Portage Bay Cafe.

Room includes:

- Queen-sized bed with clean linens

- Living room couch has hide-a-bed

- Refrigerator (Freezer has some items from family)

- 3/4 size stove and oven

- Microwave

- Gas BBQ (shared)

- Clean dishes

- WiFi

- Desk & chair

- Large closet and dresser

- Use of washer/dryer

- Hair dryer

- High chair, portable crib, stroller, booster seat, baby monitor, even a swing set available!

- Please note: a tax rate of 9.5% will be added in your quote. This tax rate is comprised of WA sales tax and a series of King County and Seattle taxes.

Use of owner's guest parking pass is available for an additional $5/day or up to $50.

Guest Access
We have a lock box that you will use to gain access upon arrival.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2006

              About the owner: Currently a stay-at-home mom to three young ones (9, 7, and 4 years old). By trade I'm a high school Spanish teacher. My husband works jointly at the UW in the School of Public Health and at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. He does HIV/AIDS vaccine research as a Bio-Statistician. We've done vacation rentals in the past through craigslist when we've gone on longer vacations/sabbaticals, so thought we'd give this new web site a try as a way to help us pay for piano and ballet lessons and still save something for their college education! My favorite destinations: Buenos Aires! Sevilla, España Books: To Kill a Mockingbird Jane Eyre Little Women Count of Monte Cristo Les Miserables Blueberries for Sal Bodas de Sangre by Lorca Taming of the Shrew The Catcher and the Rye Of Mice and Men Movies: Currently going through a Bollywood craze. 3 Idiots, Lagaan, almost anything with Amir Khan or Shahrukh Khan Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Breakfast at Tiffany's, Cool Hand Luke, Street Car Named Desire, Gilda. Princess Bride Pedro Almodovar films

              Why the Owner Chose University District:
              We weren't even in the market to buy a house, but the Estate Sale drew me in, then the lush walkway and spectacular backyard design and flora impressed me but the daylight basement that filled with light made me ask to see the rest of the house. Then I drove home and brought my husband to see the house. It's an eclectic neighborhood with young professional families, many that work at the University of Washington, Microsoft, Amazon, or for themselves, plus students, and senior citizens. There is a great sense of community in our neighborhood which is called University Park. Cowan and Ravenna Park provide great play spaces and a great running path through the luscious ravine complete with a babbling brook. A little known treasure that rivals Green Lake in it's charm, but with less people!

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Urban Oasis
