Kathy is a great host and provides you with a home-away-from-home while you are in Seattle. We were welcomed with open arms and everything was planned to perfection. The apartment is fully stocked, cozy, and spacious. The yard is welcoming and relaxing, perfect for any time of day. The bed was so comfortable that it was hard to get out of it in the morning. The gas fireplace was great for the couple of nights the temperatures dropped and we just needed a bit more warmth (there is central air/heat, we just preferred the gas fireplace while watching the playoffs on the brand new TV!). The location is fairly central. We were just a quick drive away from the airport, downtown, the ferries, etc. Grocery stores and nice restaurants are plentiful within a mile or so. We brought our cat with us. It was her first traveling experience. Kathy made sure she would have a blanket and bowls. Our cat did not leave that blanket the whole time we were there. I would strongly recommend Kathy's place for your stay in Seattle. The only thing is that, at some point, you do have to go home... For our part, we will definitely stay there again the next time we are in town.

Linda, Thank you so much for staying in my AirBnb and for giving such an awesome review. I was happy to be your home away from home for your son's graduation. I enjoyed talking to your son and how committed he is to becoming a doctor. You left the apartment so spotless! Thank you for all the gifts also. I hope your family comes to Seattle again, and you know you are always welcome to stay at my AirBnb.

It's hard to say enough about Kathleen's beautiful place - it's got it all! Comfort, coziness, quiet, all the conveniences of home, a gorgeous back yard with patio/deck and firepit, easy drive to everything in Seattle. Kathleen is such an amazing hostess with top notch communication, and willingness to go out of the way to help with special requests, plus the nicest range of food supplies provided on our arrival, enhancing our entire 5-day stay. We can't wait to return!

Response from Kathleen:
Thank you Kimberly for the wonderful review. I really enjoyed you and your family. This is the first time I have used the AirBnb App for all the communication and it was really easy. I will remember that the next time I have guests from overseas. You were great guest in every way possible. You were very quiet and you left the apartment so clean. I really hope your return and that you stay in my AirBnb!!! Thank you for the candy. Thank you for checking about the good food that you left behind. I took everything to work and my co-workers were very happy.

Kathy was an amazing host and her beautiful air bnb was AMAZING! Cleanliness was a 10+, it was super well stocked with absolutely EVERYTHING you'd need, and her communication was superb! She even had treats and provisions for my daughter and I which made settling in the first night super easy. She was very available, friendly and resourceful- she even leant us a mixer and gave us flour to make cookies! Can't wait to stay again- my favorite air bnb!!!

Response from Kathleen:
Thank you so much Dana. You were great. You are the reason that AirBnb is such a fun way to meet new people. I know I will see you and your family again. Thanks for leaving the apartment so clean! Tell Grace that we loved her cookies.

Kathleen's space was wonderful. It was one of the cleanest airbnbs I've ever stayed in, and I've stayed in quite a few. The space is very nice- spacious and feels like a true home away from home. The kitchen is clean, spacious and equipped with anything you need. There is a keurig to make coffee in the morning. There were useful signs put up around the home indicating what light switches to use, how to turn on the cable, etc. The bathroom shower was great- double shower heads and Kathleen even provided shampoo and conditioner. Kathleen lives upstairs with her family, but the space is very private. The benefit to having her there is that she is always there to help or answer questions. The neighborhood is residential and is not too close to central Seattle, but not a far drive either. We rented it because my sister lives in the same neighborhood and we needed more space than what her own home allows for. Laurelhurst is a beautiful location, beautiful homes and a really beautiful neighborhood. Walking around the neighborhood is very nice, and you have a great view of the water! It is very close to University of Washington and close to restaurants and shops in the University village area. We enjoyed our stay so much. Kathleen greeted us warmly, and even provided breakfast items for us the first morning, which was much too kind of her. I will most definitely stay here again with my family and high recommend it to anyone looking for more of a "home" while visiting Seattle.

Response from Kathleen:
Yvonne, I enjoyed meeting your family. You were amazing guests, I hope you come back. It was especially nice for me to meet your sister and her family because they live in Laurelhurst and I will probably see them around the neighborhhood. When I started doing AirBnb I did not realize one of the benefits of AirBnb would be to meet my neighbors. I cannot wait to see your twin niece and nephew at the Beach Club and the park in the future. Thank you for leaving the apartment so nice and clean. I hope you come back!

Kathleen User ProfileKathleen is a superhost.

Hello! Thank you for reading my profile on AirBnb. My name is Kathy and I have lived in Seattle for over twenty five years. We raised our 2 kids in Seattle. I work in the travel industry.

I can't live without staying connected to my friends, speaking to people from different countries and backgrounds, a daily workout, Trader Joe's, and my family, which includes my hard working husband my son who works for Amazon, my daughter who is a full time student and is also a member of the Coast Guard.
We bought this house in 2000 with the goal of renting the bottom half of the house when we no longer needed a 5 bedroom house. We decided in 2014 to make the rental an AirBnb. It was an obvious choice because we travel a lot and we enjoy meeting people from all over the world. We have had our AirBnb for 2 years and the experience has been fantastic.

The space is a legal unit and is the lower half of our house. We live upstairs.
As an airbnb host, my number one priority is to make you feel completely at home. I will be available as much as you want or I will stay out of your way. The downstairs is completely separate. You will have your privacy. Our house is in the Laurelhurst part of Seattle. It is fitted with everything you could possibly need to have a cozy and warm time, including a gas fireplace with a remote, full bath with heated floors. The wifi works great. We have Apple TV.
We have had so many glorious memories in this house, we will do whatever we can to make your stay in Seattle delightful.
My favorite quote is from Helen Keller, "Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all", being a host for AirBnb has been a daring adventure.
