Seattle’s buzzing about what’s happening in South Seattle. Rightfully gaining the attention, Columbia City’s soulful vibrancy is a perfect example of what a Pacific Northwest community can be.
Just a couple blocks off Columbia City’s Rainier Ave (main street), the unit stays quiet, calm and protected by a grandfather Pine. The quiet street, at the edge of a bluff, overlooks Genesee Park, Playfields, Play Structures and Dog-park at Lake Washington.
Overlooking the front-yard garden, the unit has an open plan dining area and living room, a table for 4 (seating for 5) and couch that both sit in expansive ceilings and get plenty of light. Perfect for enjoying a cup of Seattle’s best coffee brands, and bird watching. Regular aviary visitors include anything from, chickadee’s and hummingbirds, to Stellar Jays and woodpeckers, to Bald Eagles and the famous Seward Park Parrots.
The cozy one bedroom with queen bed (and couch that unfolds to a second queen bed) and full bathroom (with tub/shower and plenty of hot water) can comfortably fit 4. (We only use unscented and hypo-allergenic laundry soap to wash the bed linens and the mattress is covered in a hypo-allergenic zip.) We provide all the bed dressings and bathroom essentials (soap and shampoo) you will need (iron and board at request, and laundry service, only in unique situations provided).
The full kitchen includes a refrigerator, oven/stove and dish washer, and all the cookware and dishware you’ll need to cook your own gourmet meal with the freshest of organic ingredients from the Columbia City’s Farmers Market and PCC Natural Food Market. Basic kitchen essentials include oils and seasonings (forget something or need snacks and drinks? Everything is available for purchase in Columbia City).
Being Business Ready, with wireless high speed internet and a 32-inch flat screen television with cable television (Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Firestick, etc. connectable) you are kept up-to-date. An easy stroll away is the business district of our Columbia City neighborhood. It’s a Free Public Wi-Fi Hotspot and free Xfinity Wi-Fi hotspot for Comcast customers.
Nestled among the branches, smells, textures and life of a hundred-year-old Eastern White Pine tree, the unit stays private and secluded with its own private entrance. The large deck has its own table and chairs that can expand to fit 8. During the summers, it stays cool and comfortable. Settle in by yourself or invite local friends and family to relax in the cool summer breeze coming up the hill from Lake Washington. We can host events (up to certain size) in the front yard with advanced notice and prior agreement (have bar-b-que and fire pit).
We are a small family of architects, volunteer coordinators, community activists and world travelers. Along with a friendly lick from our care-free (except for squirrels and postal workers) family member, Shepard-mix Gigi; we are serious about our city, community, friends, family and business of providing a home-away-from-home for you and yours. Whether you want a friendly chat or nothing but secluded privacy (has private entrance and check-in not required), we will provide what can. We look forward to hosting you (please contact us if you need any travel directions, visiting questions or arrival information).
