This cozy home is in the Ravenna neighborhood near the University of Washington with easy transportation downtown. A private room with twin beds, vanity and bureau are next to a full bath. Need two rooms? See "Sunny in Seattle" for the second room.

The space

Share a living and dining room with your hosts, Sharon and Jim, two English professors. Four steps up to the front door, seven steps up to the shared area, parking on the street. We have two cats but they don't go in the bedrooms. Ravenna is a charming neighborhood north of the University of Washington with easy access to the bus, Interstate 5 and downtown.

Guest access

We have a backyard and a front deck for your relaxation. Our neighborhood is good for walking and close to 65th Street NE, which has restaurants, a yoga studio, the Herbalist, and coffee shops. We are also walking distance from the public library, post office, and grocery stores. Buses to the UW are on our corner, and we are close to the Burke Gilman trail for walking and biking.

Interaction with guests

Jim and Sharon are English professors--Jim is retired and Sharon is still teaching. We are in and out and will be more than happy to help you get oriented to Seattle. We have books, maps, and lots of information about how to get where you're going, or suggestions on great things to do in this area. Please Note: We do not provide office space other than what you can see in the photos of the bedrooms. If you need to work at home all day or set up electronics or a writing space, you should look for accommodation that provides office space. We've learned from experience that we are unable to support guests who wish to stay in the house all day and work as if they were at an office. This is a space for tourists who want to see the city, people here for special events, interns who go to work, or students who have offices elsewhere or use the facilities at the university. There are many nearby libraries, Starbucks, and other public places that Seattleites use as daytime offices--we're glad to direct you to those spaces.

Other things to note

We provide a simple breakfast--coffee, tea, toast, yogurt, cereal, milk, fruit. Feel free to let us know if you have special needs we can accommodate. Sorry but no smoking in our house, though you can smoke in the yard. We have no pets and--sorry--don't have accommodation for pets.

Sharon is very friendly, welcoming and accommodating. Our short but sweet stay was a great experience overall. Bathroom was clean but hower head water pressure could be better. Really liked the breakfast options provided and beds were comfortable. Thank you!

Sharon was a terrific host! Her house was very clean and comfortable to stay in. She's very personable and will gladly talk to you about your trip, or just let you have your peace and quite if that's what you'd like

My daughter and I lived here for three nights, so separate beds made us sleep sound. Every day we came back late, Sharon always waited. She also gave us lots of useful suggestions. thanks for comfortable beds, various choices of breakfast and kind recommendations. The house is about 3-6minutes from public transportation, it's quiet but also convenient. Will come back again, highly recommended.
