This six bedroom shared house is in a quiet Jewish community just a 1.1mile walk to the Othello light rail station & a .8mile walk to Seward Park. It's a very peaceful area, and is convenient to the airport and also downtown Seattle, by light rail, car or Uber. Parking is available. Your private room is spacious, clean, and comfortable.
The host does not live on site and room keys are available by request.

The space

Your room is on the lower floor, down the stairs upon entering the house. Take a right through the doorway and your room is the first bedroom on the right.

It is furnished with a queen bed. It also has small fan, personal floorboard heaters, work desk w/lamps and closet space with hangers.
The shared bathroom is located on the same hallway as the bedroom for which you have booked. It will be the first door on the left when walking from the living area. The towels are either stacked on shelving or in cabinets within the corresponding bathroom.

Please limit time to 15-20min to respect the other house guests. Remember to turn off any lights you may turn on.

Guest access

Feel free to enjoy both levels in the home. Both kitchens, living and dining rooms, bathrooms, the backyard and upper deck. Basically you have access to the entire home as much as you would like. The deck off of the upper dining area is great to enjoy in nice weather, just be sure to lock the glass door when you come back inside. Our shared spaces are perfect for reading, or enjoying our fast internet and wifi, for both personal or business needs.

Interaction with guests

I am not permanently residing on the property. Once a day the housekeeper, Ricky, will be present. I am always reachable by messages or phone, and within a close distance should an emergency arise.

Other things to note

There is no air-conditioning in this home. Please be advised that it can be terribly hot in Seattle during the summer without AC.
If you are in need of a climate controlled accommodation, then you need to search elsewhere.
A room key is available by request for a $10 fee. It will be delivered to the room within a day.

If you don’t mind to spend some time on traffic to downtown, this is a nice place to stay. The neighborhood is quite, and the house is close to a bus stop. The room is not very big, but It’s fine for one guest. There is only public bathroom, but it’s also clean. Although you may not meet the host, he will provide you very detailed instruction.

Great house with very clean and comfy rooms! The location is amazing! A Lyft from downtown Seattle was only $15 (on a friday night). Very enjoyable stay. Tough to sleep in with the house having a lot of "squeaks and thumps" from other guests. Amazing value for location and very well kept house!

Quiet neighborhood. Easy access to the freeway with a lot of local places to eat. The room was nice and clean. Would for sure book this house again on my next trip to Seattle.

Great value, huge kitchen and bathroom. Downsides were our room smelled and the host wasn't particularly friendly when we entered. Very convenient bus stop can get you downtime very easily. For short trips this is a good place to stay but not for longer trips.
