Garden apartment in the daylight lower level of our house. Separate entry through our large garden. Lake Washington views with comfortable living space for up to 6 people and short walk to lake and parks. 3 bedrooms (multiple bed arrangements) and two baths with large living room containing many books, 60" TV, cable and DVD. with coffee bar and small appliances but no formal kitchen or cooking. Computer/WiFi. Near Transit w/ off-street parking for 1 car & on-street parking.

The space

Three bedrooms and two bathrooms (one with two sinks and a tub/shower and one with a shower) opening out to our big vegetable, flower and perennial garden make this a great place for families or business colleagues traveling together to congregate with views of Lake Washington and Mt Rainier. Just a half block to a great small local lakefront park and a half mile walk to Seward Park, an astounding peninsula park jutting out into the lake with old growth trees. Comfortable living room with large TV to hang out in if the weather isn't perfect (that can happen). Close to the bus and light rail which will take you pretty much anywhere in Seattle, this is a quiet residential neighborhood within walking distance to five synagogues (and within the eruv).

The small coffee bar has a small refrigerator/freezer and some small appliances including a microwave, toaster oven, Keurig coffee maker and electric tea kettle. It is suitable for cold breakfasts and lunch and is ideal for bringing in food from our local restaurants. There is no kitchen sink or fan so it is not appropriate for cooking or hot meal preparation.

There is absolutely no smoking of any kind in the unit and absolutely no tobacco use of any kind around the house.

Guest access

You have a separate entrance to our entire lower level where our 3 children grew up. You are to free walk the garden and access our covered front porch and swing seat with views of Mt. Rainier.

This unit is not handicap accessible. The path is not appropriate for a wheelchair.

Interaction with guests

We will leave you alone but will be around to ensure that your stay is successful, that you know how to get around and supply suggestions on where to go.

Other things to note

By car it is 17 minutes both to SeaTac Airport and the downtown (exclusive of traffic). The light rail station at Othello is just one mile from our home. The light rail will take you both to and from the airport (south of us) and north to many stops including the stadiums, downtown, Capital Hill and the University of Washington.

This place is great! Mark was a good host, very responsive and friendly. The accommodations were spacious, spotless and comfortable, with a nice outdoor patio overlooking lush gardens and views of the lake. The bathrooms were very nice, clean, good showers. Good value.

This was my first time using Airbnb and Mark's place was perfect for my family of eight (my parents, parents-in-law, sister, my two young boys and myself). There were plenty of rooms for everyone where we weren't in each other's personal space all of the time. My main concern was the loudness of my family as there were eight of us. (Mark later told me he and his wife didn't hear anything.) My 5 yr. old and almost 2 yr. old enjoyed watching cartoons on the big screen TV. We had just came off of a 7-day cruise and wanted to wash our clothes. Mark was nice to offer us use of his washing machine. We later declined since we there for two days and we had enough clothes to make it home. Their was great communication from Mark - he would let us know when he would be around or if he was out and asked if we needed anything. I believe we were his third guests from Airbnb and since we had such a large party using the electronics (microwave, water boiler, hot plate, etc.), the power went out just in the area we were using but Mark was able to fix that right away. He made us feel at ease in his home and provided us with extra towels for our use and blankets for the cool Seattle nights.
