About this listing

Our home is surrounded by trees for privacy and relaxation, with an interior that is restored to its classic 1908 period. It is warm and welcoming with the decor and feeling of a lived-in home. There's a cozy fireplace, high ceilings, a well-equipped kitchen, with cooking basics; spices, condiments, etc., a great deck and garden. Close to Alki beach and Lincoln Park. Great restaurants and bars are close by, and downtown is 12 minutes away. My place is perfect for adults and kids.

The space

I am an avid gardener, and have made tranquil spaces throughout my residence for relaxing, outdoor dining, and visiting with friends. The interior is decorated with my personal collections from traveling, comfortable furniture, cozy beds, and a remodeled kitchen for cooking. Many of my guests enjoy cooking and having dinners with local friends and family.

Guest access

I provide a lock-box on the front porch so guests can arrive at any time that is convenient for them. If it is a work day for me, I am flexible with early in and late check-out during the day.

Interaction with guests

During your stay you will be able to reach me by phone or email if you encounter any problems or have questions. I am generally close by and very convenient to run over if you have any needs. If I am traveling, my good friends can help with anything you need, they live just a couple of minutes away.

Other things to note

There is parking in the driveway as well as ample street parking.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house was absolutely gorgeous! Once you step across the threshold into the house you can't help but feel the stress slowly wash away. Whether it's breakfast through the beautiful French doors onto the patio overlooking the lush gardens or relaxing and reading a book, you'll never want to leave!

This house is so great! I was there with my family which included an infant. Tamara made a pack and play available for them to use which was really nice. The beds were really comfortable and the house is so well-stocked with everything you might need. We loved the porches/decks! There were a big front porch, a back deck where we ate breakfast and a second story porch off the back bedroom. They were all lovely. We recommend this house to anyone who is visiting in or near West Seattle.

We are on a 4 week road trip, from New Zealand and Tamara's was our second stop. We didn't need to be in downtown Seattle, and were glad we had chosen not to be, when we saw her cottage. It was a very comfortable homelike environment with lovely spaces to catch the sun and a beautiful garden. We visited the local spots Tamara had recommended. The highlight of the trip was the Chihuly Garden and Glass museum.. just a drive into and out of the city.

Such a beautiful house. Great kitchen for cooking and even better garden for relaxing. It was a great home base for exploring Seattle area. Kid friendly.

Tamara User ProfileTamara is a superhost.

Hi, I love gardening and working on my house. Over the past 15 years, I've restored just about everything in my 1908 home. I also love to travel, and decided to try hosting on Airbnb after some great experiences of my own. I'm a teacher in a Developmental Preschool program, and love what I do. I also love my summer vacations and choosing an exciting travel destination with my daughter...this summer Ecuador.
