About this listing

Our warm and sunny house, mere blocks from Greenlake, has picture-perfect views of Mt. Rainier from the master bedroom loft, as well as the two decks. Enjoy the open floor plan on the main level as well as a walk-in lower level with another bedroom.

The space

Our house is a remodeled craftsman-style house at the bottom of Phinney Ridge, surrounded by a lush garden. We are within a few minutes walking distance of Green Lake and the tennis courts, pool, and jogging paths on its shores. We are also within a few blocks of the shops and restaurants on Greenwood Ave. While convenient to SR-99/Aurora for a fast commute downtown (10-15 min), the house is on a quiet and peaceful street, full of charming old houses and friendly neighbors. The bus stop for RapidRide into downtown is around the corner.

The house is a beautiful craftsman on the outside, but has been renovated on the inside to expose the original beams and to allow in tons of light. The main floor includes an open living/dining room space (table seats 6), the kitchen, a bathroom, a home office room, and access to the main deck and garden. The master bedroom fills the enclosed loft space, and includes a jacuzzi tub in the second bathroom. The bedroom also has amazing views of Mt. Rainier. If you can't get enough of the view from bed, a ladder inside the bedroom leads to the enclosed roof deck, from which you can see more of the mountain, as well as the lake and downtown Seattle. Finally, a completed basement features a second bedroom and access to the driveway.

If you have more than 4 guests, we can set up more beds. The home office on the main level has a futon chair and can be set up as a bedroom for one. There is also a full air mattress in the basement for an additional two guests.

Note: the spiral staircase and roof ladder are not small child-friendly, though adults seem to love them! The house does not include a TV, just a movie projector, so bring your own laptop.

Guests will have access to the entire house while we are gone, though closets and other storage spaces will be full. Help yourself to parsley and other herbs growing in the yard. Sheets, towels, shampoo and conditioner are included.

Depending on your arrival and departure dates, we may or may not see you. If we are not present, we will leave clear instructions on picking up and returning keys.


The neighborhood has easy access to Green Lake, a bike-friendly commute to Wallingford and Fremont, and local restaurants and bars on both Greenwood and Aurora. We're also very close to the PCC for all your organic and local grocery needs.

Our house is a block from Aurora/99, which is one of the fastest ways to get downtown, either by car or bus (there's a bus stop at the intersection). If you have a car, there is a driveway behind the house for a single car (behind our car), as well as plenty of street parking.

Our garden is bursting with tomatoes, lettuce, blueberries, and dozens of other crops. If we're around when you arrive, we're happy to give you a tour and point out what's edible.

We had a wonderful time at Esther's place. Check-in was super easy, and the house is lovely, clean and spacious. We had all the amenities we needed. Communication with Esther was fast and easy, she was very flexible and went out of her way to ensure everything was smooth for us. Would highly recommend this place.

We had a great time at Esther's house! We were traveling with two teenagers, and particularly enjoyed the privacy that the layout of the house provided. The house as a whole was comfortable and well taken care of, but the main attraction is definitely the master bedroom/roof deck! So much light, even on cloudy days, and although it was cool and rainy most of the time we were there, the deck was a fun option for hanging out when it was dry. The jacuzzi tub was an added bonus. The neighborhood itself was great for walking, and we found it to be super convenient to jump on 99 to get from place to place in the car. I'd definitely stay here again. A great value!

Esther's house was beautiful-- exactly as airy and loft-like as it is in the photos. It's in a nice neighborhood, a short walk from the park at Green Lake and the cafes in Phinney Ridge. Esther was quick and responsive to questions, and she made the checking in and out process simple and intuitive. My family and I really enjoyed having the place as a home base.

This was my first experience with Airbnb and Esther made the whole process very simple for us starting with the initial email communication all the way until we arrived. Esther answered all our questions/emails and had everything ready for us by the time we stepped in the door. We had a wonderful time staying in Esther's lovely home. Everything matches the description and pictures plus we were able to cook with herbs from garden. Esther's home is located in a quiet neighborhood but restaurants and grocery store are within walking distance. We also enjoy the Greek restaurant that Esther recommended.

I'm both a host and frequent user of Airbnb. We moved into the house in fall of 2013 and have been working to finish decorating and furnishing it. My favorite parts of the house are the roof deck and the garden. I look forward to sharing both with you!
