Об этом жилье
Welcome! This is Michael's room. While he is traveling we post it! Come stay with the other roommates and other airbnb guests while you are in town! This is a great budget travel option for those who like meeting other travelers and roommates!
Hello! Our house is a couple blocks off broadway in the northern section of the Capitol Hill neighborhood. The room is one of five bedrooms in our house. You will be staying with roommates and other airbnb guests. We have a cozy kitchen, bathroom and living room with lots of light! You can do laundry downstairs ($1 wash / $1 dry), and hang out in our lovely living room.
Our house is the tall, dark and handsome type, height / weight proportionate, with a red brick exterior (if you're into that sort of thing). Good to know we are an older home, not a hotel so the aesthetics come with the territory. We're two blocks from Broadway, with a stupid amount of cool shit and buses within walking distance. You can get to the Pike/Pine nightlife in a short 10-minute walk.
Broadway has transformed from its grungy gutter-punk needles-and-heroin 90s roots. Maklemore filmed a music video here last night. Sir Mix-A-Lot wrote "My Posse's on Broadway" about it. Pearl Jam came up with their name at B&O Espresso just down the block (RIP B&O – now moved to Ballard).
We also live right by the library, and we've even been there a few times.
The room can hold one person. The room is a converted attic so its ceilings are slopped on the sides of the room. For folks over 6 ft this may feel like a squeeze. The room has closet space, desk and chair, lamps, 4 bath towels, bedding provided, shelving and drawer space, french press, hot water pot, tea and coffee, iron and ironing board, and locked 2 drawer file cabinet provided. The locked 2 drawer cabinet key will be on top of the file cabinet upon guest room check in. Guests should return the key to on top of the file cabinet when they check out from the room. The room door has a hook latch that can be secured when inside the room. The wifi signal is weak in this room. If you are someone who falls asleep to netflix this might not be the room for you. Guests in this room are welcome to use our living room anytime of the day where the wifi signal is strong. We supply a fan and air purifier in the room that also act as background noise. We find that in a house with several people these can be helpful tools to minimizing noise disturbances. We also provide ear plugs in this room.
**For the summer months this room has a window AC unit and box fan for use. As converted attics go ours is very good at holding heat. During the summer this means that during day time hours the room can be very warm even with the AC unit on. For days when the outside temp is above 80 degrees this room is best suited for guests who plan to use the room at night or who like daytime saunas. The living room is on the second floor and is much more comfortable temperature wise during the day. Guests in this room are more than welcome to hang out in the living room any time of day.
The room is on our third floor. The third floor has leah's room, a shared space where an airbnb guest may stay and this room. As we only have one bathroom we limit the overall number of guests in the house to 7 at one time. Due to this we limit the guests in this room to one guest.
The 2nd floor contains all of our common spaces. Guests are welcome to use all common spaces in our house. We ask that guests not enter private spaces or any door that is unlabeled. The bathroom is labeled and the kitchen and living room are open door ways. The laundry room is in the basement. Directions will be provided in the house manual after finalizing booking.
Be aware that our house is older, and feels very lived-in. The paint and furniture have blemishes, our carpets have stains that won't quit and our tile floor looks like it needs a mopping even after a vigorous cleaning. Our building has some elements that disrupt wifi signal (brick etc) so the signal can be weak in certain areas of the house. The living room has great signal and is available to all guests any time of day. We deep clean the house a couple times a week and do daily light cleaning. While our house shows it age, it will always be cleaned up and ready for guests! We appreciate our house for the location and the people.
Our neighborhood can be challenging to park in and only street parking is available.
You'll be staying with two of us and a few other airbnb guests:
Leah, 31: Leah has lived in the house for 4 years. Leah is a Midwest transplant who grew up in Michigan and spent a few years in Chicago before relocating to Seattle. Living with Leah is like summer camp. Her favorite moments in life are (1) when the power goes out (camping time!), (2) summer barbecues, and (3) when everyone wants to have a dance party. She's really good at people. Leah has several part time jobs that range from working as an ABA therapy assistant (therapy for youth with Autism), staff in a young adult shelter, Residential Advisor for High School International students in a dorm setting and driving with Lyft. Leah likes to keep busy and is often out of the house. You are most likely to see her around if you are at the house during late morning/early afternoon or get a ride from her!
Mike, 35: Mike has lived in the house for 10 years! A cali native and Berkeley Co-op resident 10 years ago, he is now a scientist and businessman in human-computer systems. He enjoys having long intellectual discussions about changing the world and happiness and all that meaningful stuff. When he's not doing that, however, he's fun and playful and borderline stupid, like a puppy. All the musical instruments in the living room are Mike’s. Mike has a sweet motorcycle and motor scooter. Mike travels often for any of the 4 businesses he is running! When he is around he loves to meet and chat with guests!
We open up this space for special occasions, like when a roommate has gone out of town, or we're just in the mood for some fun out-of-town company. So take advantage when it's here!
Our house check in time is flexible while our Room Check in/out times are firm. Room check in time is any time AFTER 3pm and check out BEFORE noon. We aim to have a flexible guest check in processs the firm times are the earliest check in time possible and the latest check out time possible. No need to be here at exactly at 3pm or leave exactly at noon. Guests will receive very detailed check in instructions the week before arrival. As we aim to have a flexible check in/out process this means a roommate will not be present when a guests arrives. Guests should plan on printing out a copy of the check in instructions to view upon arrival. Guests are welcome to text Leah with questions the day of arrival.
We do have the capacity to set keys out early and folks store items in our living room before their room is ready and/or store items after check out in the living room till final departure. To access this option this must be arranged at least one day before check in.
Guests are welcome to use any of our common spaces. All our common spaces are on the 2nd floor. The bathroom is labeled and the kitchen and living room are through open doorways. We ask guests to not enter any other private rooms or unlabeled rooms.
Общение с гостями
Mostly via text/phone. Leah does all the guest communications. She works multiple part time jobs and is available via text/phone to answer questions during your stay.
Good to know we typically do not meet our guests in person upon arrival. We aim to have a very flexible check in process that works for our guests schedule so we have set up a self check in process based on detailed instructions sent the week before arrival. We ask all guests to make sure to have these instructions accessible for reference upon arrival. Leah is available via text/airbnb messaging if any questions come up. We appreciate hearing from guests via text once they are in if all is well or if questions have come up!
In the room is our welcome binder which has our house manual (also provided via email after finalizing booking), information on essentials and recommendations from roommates on what to check out in the area.
We find that most of our guests from different rooms enjoy getting to meet each other. This tends to happen because folks are in common spaces at the same time. Guests are welcome to hang out in common spaces and encouraged to get to know other guests who are staying here.
We have a sister airbnb hosting house that holds weekly bonfires for all airbnb guests at their house and ours. The other house is a 20 min walk from our house. More information about these events are provided in the house manual (received after bookings are finalized). The other house also hosts events around particular holidays. If such events happen during your stay, Leah will send you an invitation and more information. Past events have included: 4th of July Beach BBQ, Thanksgiving dinner, Halloween moviethon, etc.
Другие важные подробности
The room has a locked 2 drawer file cabinet in which guests in this room can store valuable items during their stay. The key for this cabinet will be on top of the cabinet upon guest check in to the room. Guests should keep the key with them during their stay and return it to the top of the file cabinet upon room check out.
The room has a door hook latch that can be secured when the guest is in the room. The room is not able to be locked when the guest is outside of the room.
We try to maintain an house environment infused with trust that it is unnecessary to lock up valuable items. While we have never had any issues with this in the past, we recognize that guests may feel more safe when able to lock their room while in it and lock up their belongings when not in the room. We ask that all guests contribute to the trustworthy environment in our home.
Follow the golden rule: Treat others (and our house!) the way you want to be treated!
Please keep in mind that our home is not a hotel! We offer our rooms to guests because of our great experiences with guests as respectful, trustworthy, warm and the great care they take of our home. Please contribute to the legacy of respect, safety, trust and warmth during your stay!
Если вы отменяете бронирование за 7 дней до поездки или раньше, то мы вернем 50% суммы бронирования. Если вы отменяете бронирование меньше чем за 7 дней до поездки, то деньги не возращаются.

We are a roommate duo (Leah and Mike!) who have lived together for a number of years! We make music, do science, design the internet, social work, and drink cheap beer.
