The SpaceLocal. Suburban. Outdoorsy. Environmentally conscious. Safe, Secure, and Peaceful. Launch pad for Pacific Northwest adventures of all sorts. Home away from home.
Note that the accommodations are a multi-functional room, with sleeping either on a queen sized air mattress, twin sized air mattress, or a couch, depending on personal preference. If you are keen to explore, there are ample books and maps available, as well as an owner with a brain full of ideas and experiences. The key to this lodging opportunity is all the comforts of home with lots of ways to enjoy exploring the Pacific Northwest, at a rate at or below the nightly local hotel rate.
This space is tastefully remodeled, with numerous details and comforts. It stays warm in the winter, and cool in the summer, and buffers sounds from the rest of the house and surrounds. It's located in lovely Edmonds, Washington, just north of Seattle. Edmonds is "The Friendliest Town on Puget Sound."
Seattle metro area day trips, 3 hour radius epic day trips galore, smaller family vacations, road trips with a base camp, and even while transitioning homes locally or transplants moving into the area.

Prometric testing Center, Compass Courses maritime training, Swedish Edmonds Hospital, Rick Steves' Europe, Edmonds Arts Festival, Edmonds Community College, University of Washington, Edmonds ferry / train (Amtrak and Sounder), Edmonds Transit Center, Aurora Village Transit Center, Mountlake Terrace Transit Center and freeway stop. Guest AccessGuests have access to a mother-in-law studio suite with dedicated bathroom as well as shared laundry facilities. Interaction with GuestsGuests may come and go with little to no interaction if they like. Or, for those more social, family style meals or casual social interaction with me are possible, too. I am an extrovert, so just make it clear if you'd prefer alone time and privacy or social time and interaction.
It really depends on how much is mututally agreed. I've enjoyed meals and wine and evening social time in the backyard with some guests, and barely seen others, based on their level of comfort and interest in interacting. I am a working professional woman with a family, so I don't mind if you like your own space, though I am a huge extrovert and love to meet and get to know new people.
I do also list the upstairs space occasionally on Air BnB, so you may meet others, if desired. Please DO let me know right away if there are any issues with interactions with other guests or occupants. The NeighborhoodThe property is easily reached with just 3 turns off of either of 2 exits from Interstate 5. It is within walking distance of groceries, drug stores, banks, shops, restaurants, and even beaches and ferry and train travel as well as Interstate 5, but is down a quiet neighborhood street. The neighborhood never seems to lose power even in severe winter weather like ice and snow and wind storms.
Location has worked well for savvy travelers looking for affordable, safe, clean, comfortable, accommodations. Getting AroundLocal buses, transit center, train station, and ferry dock are all within a reasonably ambulatory and environmentally conscious person's walking distance. There are some pieces of information available for schedules, etc., in hard copy in the space and around the house, thanks to previous guests. :) Most can be found online. Other Things to NoteWalk Score 42: 6 min drive , 11 min bike, 37 min walk to Downtown Edmonds.
Grocery stores and other services within walking distance (PCC, QFC, Walgreens, Starbucks, Dry Cleaning, Pet store, Café Ladro, Harbor Square, YMCA, Bus Community Transit 416 to downtown Seattle, Rapid Ride 'E' Line along Hwy 99/Aurora Ave corridor into Seattle to near King Street Station. It's even possible to get to/from SeaTac Airport by mass transit, with a reasonably small amount of walking, though it's not very time efficient compared to a car, and I'd personally only try this with carry-on luggage and a backpack or purse.
