Welcome to our home! Staying with us is a mix of visiting with locals and meeting travelers. This room is a good budget option for those wanting to stay in a walkable area. This is also a good option for people new to the area.

The space
Hello! Our house is a couple blocks off broadway in the northern section of the Capitol Hill neighborhood. The room is one of five bedrooms in our house. You will be staying with roommates as well as other airbnb guests. We have a cozy kitchen, bathroom and living room with lots of light! You can do laundry downstairs ($1 wash / $1 dry), and hang out in our lovely living room.

Our house is the tall, dark and handsome type, height / weight proportionate, with a red brick exterior (if you're into that sort of thing). Good to know we are an older home, not a hotel so the aesthetics come with the territory. We're two blocks from Broadway, with a stupid amount of cool shit and buses within walking distance. You can get to the Pike/Pine nightlife in a short 10-minute walk.

Broadway has transformed from its grungy gutter-punk needles-and-heroin 90s roots. Maklemore filmed a music video here last night. Sir Mix-A-Lot wrote "My Posse's on Broadway" about it. Pearl Jam came up with their name at B&O Espresso just down the block (RIP B&O – now moved to Ballard).

We also live right by the library, and we've even been there a few times.

The room is best suited for 1 person. As we have multiple listings in this house as well as roommates and one bathroom we limit the overall number of guests in the house to 5 at one time. Due to this, this room is able to accommodate one person.

Be aware that our house is older, and feels very lived-in. The paint and furniture have blemishes, our carpets have stains that won't quit and our tile floor looks like it needs a mopping even after a vigorous cleaning. We deep clean the house a couple times a week and do daily light cleaning. While our house shows it age, it will always be cleaned up and ready for guests! We appreciate our house for the location and the people.

Our neighborhood can be challenging to park in and only street parking is available.

You'll be staying with two of us and a few other airbnb guests:

Leah, 34: Leah has lived in the house for 4 years. Leah is a Midwest transplant who grew up in Michigan and spent a few years in Chicago before relocating to Seattle. Living with Leah is like summer camp. Her favorite moments in life are (1) when the power goes out (camping time!), (2) summer barbecues, and (3) when everyone wants to have a dance party. She's really good at people. Leah has several part time jobs that range from working as an ABA therapy assistant (therapy for youth with Autism), staff in a young adult shelter, Residential Advisor for High School International students in a dorm setting and driving with Lyft. Leah likes to keep busy and is often out of the house. You are most likely to see her around if you are at the house during late morning/early afternoon or get a ride from her! Guests can contact her directly via text to schedule rides depending on her availability.

Andrew, 32: Andrew is new to the apartment as of Jan 2017. Andrew hails from Florida and has previously worked with homeless youth and young adults in Seattle area. Andrew works with International students in a dorm setting in the neighborhood. He also drives with Lyft and is aiming to head back to school to study nursing in spring 2017. He has a place in his heart for a well crafted computer game (including story line, coding and graphics) and has a series of mods for his favorite games he has created. Andrew also likes to lift weights to stay fit and gets really pumped when he gets new personal best when doing squats.

Come stay with us awhile and enjoy the area!

We do have the capacity for guests to arrive before 3pm and store items in our living room before their room is ready and/or store items after check out in the living room till final departure. This can be arranged during booking.

Other things to note
The room has a key lock on the bedroom door. While we strive to have a trusting environment where people and things are safe without locking up items, we recognize that travelers may feel more comfortable being able to lock their items while out of the room.

My roommate and I host guests at our house in seattle and have second house that I am the manager of. The bookings are all through my roommates profile so the reviews aren't visible here. Our listings are a series of "Capitol Hill Excursion" and "Crayola Home" in the Seattle Capitol Hill neighborhood. I am excited to travel with airbnb and meet hosts from around the world! I am using airbnb currently to find places to stay on my first international trip! I'm a recovering social worker and have been taking time away from that line of work to enjoy the brighter things in life!

During your stay
Mostly text and phone. Leah, who communicates with all guests works multiple part time jobs but is available to respond to questions via text/phone within 30 mins.

Good to know we don't meet our guests in person upon arrival. We aim to provide a flexible check in process so we have it set up to be done all on your own without us present. We love to hear from guests via text/airbnb message once they arrive if all is well or if any questions come up! We are available via text/airbnb message for any troubleshooting, questions that come up!

Upon a confirmed reservation you will be able to access your trip itinerary on airbnb. This will contain information on essentials in the area, our address, directions to the house, our house manual and roommate recommendations of what to check out in the area.
