This small cottage is situated with a park on 2 sides and a city pea patch across the street. Towering trees provide beauty and shade in the front yard. Minutes from golf courses, creek trails and protected land, and Seattle's best sandy beach!
This small, quaint 1940s cottage is fully furnished with a brand new queen size bed and brand new sofa. Although larger, the space is similar to a studio with the couch and bed in the largest room of the house, and dining and kitchen area in a separate room. The sofa folds out to accommodate two more guests for a total of 4!
Wake up in your own private space and cook your own breakfast in a kitchen fully stocked with an electric stove, microwave, coffee pot, flatware, cooking utensils, and glasses for beverages of any type.
Free wifi is provided for you to stay connected, along with a collection of board games if you want to stay put. A stacked washer/dryer with all natural laundry soap allows you to keep everything fresh during your trip and on the return home. Although small with a shower stall, the bathroom is stocked with natural, sulfite free shampoo, conditioner, and body wash and hair dryer at no extra charge. The bathroom sink is also tiny, but a larger mirror in the living space is provided. The nearly 3000sf front yard is shaded by trees on both sides for privacy and shade, where you can sit on the lawn furniture and enjoy the fresh NW sea breeze, sip wine outside, or walk from the yard into the adjacent park to watch the sunset behind the treeline to the west. The house is walking distance from an 18 hole golf course with views of downtown and Mount Rainier, access to wildlife trails and creek trails, and short drive from Seattle's best beach! Let the Cottage on the Park provide comfort for you on your next trip to Seattle!
Guests have full 24/7 access to the house on the property from check-in to check-out.
As hosts, we want to provide you with whatever level of support you're comfortable with. If you'd prefer to be left alone, that's great. We'll be a phone call or text away in the event of an emergency or if you need advice about the region. If you'd prefer to meet at the start of your stay for recommendations on dining, nightlife, the music scene, transportation or recreation and tourism, we're happy to oblige. Our level of interaction is entirely up to you!
The house is in a neighborhood, so while it is one of the more secluded houses on the block, use common sense and be considerate as you get to know the area and see locals. As hosts, we live in the same area, so we communicate with our neighbors pretty regularly.
The Cottage on the Park is intended for a range of guests. Traveling solo? Couples on a weekend trip? Family of four? No problem. We'll handle the cleaning of the sheets, towels, floors, bathroom, and garbage cans. Don't trash the place, treat the furniture with respect, and we'll do everything we can to make sure you feel comfortable.
Cancel up to 5 days before your trip and get a full refund. Cancel within 5 days of your trip and the first night is non-refundable, but 50% of the cost for the remaining nights will be refunded.
I've lived in Seattle for 14 years now. I am a middle school teacher and musician in Seattle, and I love doing landscaping and building projects on the side. I couldn't do any of the great things I've done in my life without my family, especially my wife, Jenny, or my 2 year old daughter, Hazel. We are a family who thrives on good times with family and friends, experiencing the outdoors, immersing ourselves in culturally diverse experiences, and learning about where we live. We love to share what we learn with others, for that is what creates fond memories!
As Airbnb hosts, we want to ensure that our guest have the most enjoyable and seamless experience possible. Thus, we pride ourselves in responding to immediate feedback from guests so that we can continually improve upon our service as hosts.
We like to leave it up to guests as to how much they want us involved in their stay. Ultimately the best adventures are through exploration and discovery, but if you want advice or tips from locals, we're happy to guide you in the best direction for nightlife, outdoors experiences, and things to do outside the city if you so choose. It's all about making the time you spend in Seattle the best time possible!
