Overview

About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

You will be delighted as you descend from street level in a quiet family neighborhood to your garden-level suite opening onto a mature wooded greenbelt along the popular Burke-Gilman trail. You will open your private entrance to find a lovely,roomy apartment, providing two comfortable bedrooms. You'll have to decide whether to sink into the comfortable sofa to enjoy the big screen TV with cable, cozy up before the floor to ceiling windows to drink in the serene view of trees, birds and Lake Washington in the distance, or cook a gourmet meal in the well-equipped brand new kitchen. Your guests will relax and chat at the bar while you create, then you can share your bounty at the dining table, or al fresco on your private deck.

The first bedroom has a king size bed, huge closet and desk where you can log on via ethernet or wifi and work or surf in peace and tranquility. The second bedroom has an inviting queen size bed, convenient storage and a large window looking out on the wooded garden. This bedroom adjoins the full bathroom with tub and shower, separate vanity with plenty of storage.

You have your own laundry room, complete with front loader, high efficiency washer and dryer. Your suite will always be comfortable, with new natural gas heat and central air conditioning. You and your family will always feel safe with your own security system.

Your guest suite is your home away from home, secluded feeling but minutes away from all the amenities and activities you could want. You will find easy street parking in the uncrowded neighborhood. You are steps away from public transportation, taking the Metro bus to the University District, Seattle Center, Northgate, Ballard or downtown in minutes.

About Ron

Your host, Ron, has decades of experience in hospitality, as the owner of one of Seattle's most beloved restaurants. I expanded into home renovation during 2010 as general contractor as my wife and I brought our 1967 home into the 21st century. We updated every inch of the home and are comfortable on the first and second floors of this three story home. We especially love the location, the feeling of being in the forest as we gaze out on the wooded garden and watch the birds.

Ron purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Ron chose Northeast

We have lived in Northeast Seattle for years, but especially enjoy this home for its tranquil setting combined with easy access to everything we love. We can be in the Cascade or Olympic Mountains, on Puget Sound, or the San Juan Islands in no time. Our community is diverse, urban, literate and comfortable.

What makes this apartment unique

We adopted the Pacific Northwest as our home many years ago, have raised our children here, and are now ready to share our community with visitors. We trust you will leave Seattle as smitten as we are!

Our home away from home

  • 5 of 5

For the last 3 1/2 years our plan was to come 3 times a year & stay for 30 days - I lost count how many times & days. What could I add to all the great reviews-that Ron is always updating, improving. From new towels, new bar stools for kitchen, great beverages available. A wonderful rocking chair in 2nd bedroom to rock grandchildren who visit. A Keurig coffee machine with coffee, tea, cocoa. A beautiful backyard, great gas grill. We used the city bus and found it to be on time, friendly drivers & a bargain for seniors. I always felt like we were coming back home-sad our daughter & family moved -a wonderful place to stay. Ron makes you feel so comfortable-we will miss him & our Seattle home. Thank you Ron!

Just like being at home!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this place! Very comfortable and convenient to LRT to get downtown. Ron has supplied everything you could have in your home - down to ziploc bags! Beds were super comfortable and the house was quiet and cozy in a lovely neighbourhood. Would definitely stay here again. We usually stay downtown but found this more relaxing and just as convenient- once we spent a day downtown we didn't need to have another day there and this allowed us to explore other areas of the city. Next time we will bring bikes to explore the trails that are right outside the door. Thanks Ron for being a gracious host!

Nice place and wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Ron is really nice and spoke with him a few times over the phone. I

supposed to stay here with my family relatives from oversea, but I didnt able to make it. I saw a lot of nice pictures. Ron was helping them a lot with moving luggage. I would like to stay there myself next time
