Find your own private, comfortable corner of Seattle to rest your head while you explore the city. Our block features a frequent bus line (every 10-15 minutes) that will whisk you to the heart of downtown Seattle, and we are a 20 minute walk to The Junction in West Seattle.

The building is a cozy converted garage, fully-finished and hand-built with a carpenter's touch. The unit is completely private and fenced off from our home, and we have furnished it so that you can have a hassle-free stay.

The space

Our converted, fully-remodeled "garage" is the perfect size for long and short stays. The garage was personally built by a contractor with his own unique flair, and is a no-nonsense, functional living space. An ample living space area has a TV and sectional couch. The kitchen is equipped to cook your own meals (there is a range, but no oven) and has a long table. The bathroom includes a stand-up shower and all the basics.

Guest access

The unit is accessed from the alleyway and is fully fenced off, so that you have privacy and seclusion. You'll need to park on the street and then walk to the unit, a distance of 200 feet. Or, do what we do, and take the bus. The #21 line drops off and picks up only 500 feet from the unit, and takes you directly to and from Downtown Seattle.

There is a washer and dryer located outside the unit in an enclosed space. During warmer months, we set out a cafe table and chairs for you to use while spending time outside.

If you need anything during your stay, we'll be happy to help you out as best we can.

Other things to note

As noted in the House Rules, we have a stair/ladder to get into the bedroom loft. This may prove challenging for those with limited mobility, so please be aware of the situation and please take extreme caution when in the loft so as to avoid injury. Keep the loft door closed when not actively in use.

Chris' space in West Seattle is amazing. The space itself is very comfortable and the location is only a 20 minute drive away from Downtown. Nearby you can take short drives to Alki beach or check out the beautiful Lincoln Park. There are also restaurants galore nearby as well (pretty much within a good walking distance). Great host, great space, great location one of the best airbnb experiences I've had.

Chris's place was beyond our expectations! He was very flexible with our check-in and in that moment we knew our stay was going to be amazing. The loft was cute, affordable and met our every needs. It was located in West Seattle which turned out to be less than 30 mins from anywhere we wanted to go. Though there wasn't a parking spot provided there is more than plenty of street parking close by and walking late at night around the neighborhood was no issue because everything was tranquil and nice. Would definitely stay here again next time I'm in Seattle!

Christopher and Joe’s space was really lovely, comfortable, cozy, with everything I needed for my three days to Seattle. It was close to good restaurants, walkable, safe. They were very quick to respond with any questions I had, and gave great tips about the neighborhood, we are to eat etc.I very much enjoyed my stay and will definitely come again if I am in Seattle.

This was THE CUTEST and most comfortable Airbnb! It was my first time ever using Airbnb and I booked with Chris because of all the fabulous reviews and they completely delivered. I felt so at home and welcome. The private entrance and the little touches through the space like complimentary soaps, granola bars, and restaurant suggestions only elevated the experience. They were very responsive to all the questions I had and made my trip lol the more enjoyable. Next time I visit Seattle I will certainly stay there again! It is only a 10-15 min uber ride into the city!!
