Glamour camping at its finest: A self-contained insulated/gas-log stove heated Yurt (w/kitchen & bathroom) nestled in a private fenced cottage garden. Take in the beautiful Seattle skyline by water taxi, then shuttle back up the hill to cozy up in the garden yurt under the stars. With its whimsical personality and vibrant canopy bed, this is the perfect all-season getaway for adventurous artists and romantics.

We are "natives" and live in the Admiral District on top of the hill above Alki in West Seattle. Both of us see life as a "great art project" and appreciate artistic expression in self and other. Ted is licensed massage therapist (LMP); Lisa is a hair-designer/skin-therapist/LMP. We have a 1918 craftsman cottage next door that we work from, the "Glamping" Airbnb Yurt nestled in the back yard and a bountiful lush garden surrounding us. Also residing with us are 2 cats (Septumus and Lilya), and 2 busy bee hives! We enjoy thinking outside the box and creating spaces to wonder and contemplate in. We hope to travel the Globe now that we are "empty-nesters"....meeting new peoples, experiencing different traditions, and celebrating being Alive! (Yes, the Glamping Yurt Airbnb was born out of a desire to support Higher Education in our family (Website hidden by Airbnb) has had many incarnations including our wedding ceremony, again many moons ago;-)) That's a quick bird's eye view of The Johnson's! (PS Profile pic is from our Honeymoon in Italy, now many moons ago;-)
