Property description

The Space
The private studio is cozy and comfortable in our NE Seattle home overlooking Lake Washington. Guests will have complete privacy in their room and access to their private bath. In addition the shared laundry and mini-kitchen area gives them access to a microwave, sink and fridge for light meals. I have listed the space as accommodating 3. If you are traveling with children and open to having them sleep on the floor with an airbed we can make some arrangements. I will not accept rental for more than 2 adults in the space.

Guest Access
The guests will have access to the private entrance of basement bedroom (step down a basement stairwell of 9 steps), shared laundry area, private bath next to the laundry area. During nice weather the guests can come up to the outdoor deck area and relax with the views of Lake Washington.

There is plenty of street parking for your car.

Interaction with Guests
We are parents of two active 9 year olds and depending on the time of arrival of the guests, we are happy to meet and greet as we live upstairs. The unit is self-catering and has a keyless entry so guests can come and go as they please during their stay.

The Neighborhood
Matthews Beach neighborhood is a super quiet and friendly neigbhorhood located in NE Seattle. We are minutes away from the largest and best hospitals like Children's Hospital and University of Washington. We are only 15 to 25 minutes away from the heart of the city as well as accessible to many local parks like Greenlake and Magnuson Parks.

Getting around
We are steps away from public transit with city bus #75 on Sandpoint Way which is less than a block away. #75 goes University District and Lake City area to give you access to other major bus lines in the city.

Other Things to Note
We are a family of 4 with 9 year old twins and a pet dog - Sigmund. They are happy and busy kids. The space for rent is away from their typical daily life and they are at school during the day or out and about during the weekends. On weeknights, they retreat to their bedrooms on the 2nd floor of the house by 7:30 p.m and on weekends by about 8:30 p.m. Since the room is in the basement and we live upstairs, please expect normal family activity. We will be respectful of your privacy.

The dog is not allowed in the rental space and if outside he is in the fenced front yard which is not accessible to the rental area or entrance.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Hi! Welcome to our home. I am Archana and originally from India and I live with my husband and twins who are 9 years old. We are an active family and super involved in our local community and public school. Our kids are scouts and we are routinely out hiking, biking and on the nearby soccer fields. I love to cook a bunch, travel a ton and take too many photos of both food and landscapes. Our kids have been to far off places like the Cook Islands and we think travel is sometimes more educational than just reading text books! My husband is a busy IT professional and is an avid biker and mathlete. While we enjoy traveling we consider Seattle the best place to live and raise our family. So come visit us and get to know our fantastic city.

Why the Owner Chose Lake City, Seattle, WA, USA:
Our property is a great in-city getaway. Close to Matthews Beach Park, biking trails and nearby University and Hospitals

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Private retreat with full laundry facility to use. Key-less entry to check in whenever you arrive.
