Small Private room for 1 person on the 2nd floor of our apartment. We are an apartment within a house on Capitol Hill. A trio of long term roommates excited to welcome the world to our home for short stays! We are a good fit for budget travelers who are looking forward to interacting with locals and other travelers and who enjoy shared living environments.
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. 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 has a lofted full sized bed that can accommodate one person. Best to check out the pictures to make sure it is a good fit for you! The ceiling is only a couple feet above the bed so it is a bit tight and will not suit everyone. We recommend the bed for those under 6 ft in height! We lofted the room to make use of the space in the small room as much as possible! There is a desk, chair and free standing closet in the room. The room faces west and is next to our kitchen. The room is just long wide enough to fit a full sized bed and frame, and long enough to fit the width of a full sized bed and the free standing closet in the photos. It is a small room! The wireless signal isn't the best in the room, so we encourage guests to use our living room for their lounging internet surfing needs! Please note if you fall asleep to netflix this room may not be a good fit!
As we have multiple listings in this house as well as roommates and one bathroom we limit the overall number of guests in the house to 5 at one time.
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 after a vigorous cleaning. 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 three 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!
Andrew, 31: Andrew is new to the apartment as of Jan 2017. Andrew hails from Florida and has previously worked with homeless youth and young adults in Seattle area. Andrew works with International students in a dorm setting in the neighborhood. He also drives with Lyft and is aiming to head back to school to study nursing in spring 2017. He has a place in his heart for a well crafted computer game (including story line, coding and graphics) and has a series of mods for his favorite games he has created. Andrew also likes to lift weights to stay fit and gets really pumped when he gets new personal best when doing squats.
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!
Room Check in/out times are firm. Room check in is 3pm and check out is noon. 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. This can be arranged during booking.
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!
Другие важные подробности
This room has a lock on the bedroom door. The key will be in the room upon arrival. While we strive to have a house where there is trust established so there is no need to have valuable items locked up (we have never had an issue with this), we recognize that travelers may feel safer with locks on bedroom doors.
Follow the Golden Rule - Treat others (and our house!) as you want to be treated!
Leave our space a bit better than you found it.
Everyone in the house is responsible for the safety, tidiness and welcoming spirit of the house!
