The space

The Space
Your room is upstairs and the 1st door on the left. It is furnished with a queen bed, a chair, private access to the front porch, closet space with hangers, and a small fan.
The bathroom is downstairs on the basement level. Take the hallway to the right of the staircase. Follow the stairs to the left away from the kitchen. The bathroom is at the foot of the stairs. The light switch is on the outside of the door on the left-hand side.
There are 3 rooms that share this 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 use the kitchen, dining area, the large comfortable living room, and both of the bathrooms as much as you would like. There is a desk in the living room area, which is a great for laptop use, for both personal or business. We have nice fast internet and wifi. We also have a wonderful collection of books for you to enjoy.

Interaction with guests

I am not permanently residing on the property. Once a day, a housekeeper will be present. I am always reachable by message 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.

The house is old, and it has some scratches on the doors and the walls, but it's clean daily.

A room key is available by request for a $10 fee. It will be delivered to the room within a day.

Good place to stay. It has a strong student vibe, and good value. A bit excessive with the signed instructions in every room (not very homely), however overall great for a long weekend in Seattle.

Great room. Great location. Great value. Highly recommend! The only two things that concerned me were: - The house has creaky wooden floors and stairs. Not a problem in itself, but I was always concerned that I might be waking up some fellow guest whenever I walked around. - The bathtub is an old clawfoot one with a wraparound curtain. That doesn't leave a lot of elbow room when you're showering.

The seaside room was very nice and spacious. There were 2 larger windows for ventilation, lots of storage space, a nice queen sized bed, and easy access to the bathroom. The house itself is a little older, so the stairs creak and the floorboards make some noises when you walk on them. As the house is located very near to the University, there might be parties and loud noises on the weekend. It can take around 20 minutes by uber to get to Seattle City Center, but only around 15 minutes to get to the property from Uwajimaya (where the Bolt Bus stop from Portland or Vancouver is). Overall, the experience was pleasant and Dario was very good about fast communication.

Dario User Profile

Welcome, my name is Dario.

I was born in Sicily and I moved to Seattle eight years ago. I am an Italian teacher and the director of Boys Tribe Project, an after school program to help boys develop emotional intelligence, learn how to play rough without hurting each other, and be creative with imaginative play and storytelling.

I love to cook Italian homemade food, traveling, personal growth, psychology, jazz and blues, foreign movies, interior design, modern dance, storytelling, art, and culture in general. I love hosting people, I used to host couch surfers and I also was traveling for a few years. The thing I like the most is to hear and to share stories from people all over the world.
