The SpaceHello and thank you for considering staying in my home! I am providing a furnished room in the lower level of my 1963 house. The room is carpeted, clean, and spacious. Firm queen bed, 2 side tables and lamps, a table with 2 chairs, a dresser, and extra pillows and blankets are available for your use. A full bath is available across the hall. Toiletries and towels are provided.
The room is next to the laundry room, where you will find a microwave, coffee maker, hot water kettle, and simple drinks and snacks. This is a shared space for the whole house. There is another furnished bedroom next to this bedroom (see my other listings), and this may be booked together if needed.
We do have a little German Shepherd puppy in the house. She will not have access to your space downstairs. Guest AccessYou will have access to amenities in the laundry room. Wifi Internet. Ample parking outside of the home. Interaction with GuestsYou will likely meet me or my fiance at the house upon check in. We work from home often and are usually around if you need any help. We live upstairs and you probably won't see us much otherwise.
My fiance Brian and I live in the house. We are young professionals in our 30s. I'm in the real estate industry and Brian operates his own buy/sell business. Brian loves sports and I love dancing. We have pretty random schedules but during our free time, we enjoy watching shows together, playing board games with friends, or unwind doing puzzles.
We tend to be night owls. The NeighborhoodThe neighborhood of Mountlake Terrace is very convenient just north of Seattle. Shopping, public transit, and access to freeways and major arterial is a huge plus for this location. The home is located in a quiet cul-de-sac and the neighbors are very friendly and courteous.
This location is also a short drive to the Edmonds water front for gorgeous sunsets. The home is walkable ( 2 blocks) to Lake Ballinger, it offers trails, a beach, and fishing dock. Getting AroundPerhaps the best thing about this home is its location. There is the Mountlake terrace park n ride within 1 mile of the home. It is about a 10 mins walk or a 2 mins drive. This is a large transit center that has ample parking. You can take express buses that will take you south into downtown Seattle, or north into Everett. Buses usually run until 11pm. Whether you decide to travel with or without a car, you have quite a few convenient options. Other Things to NoteThis home is an updated 1963 house. There are insulated windows and efficient heating. The room is located in the lower level of the home (day light basement). The hardwood floors do creak when we walk upstairs and the ventilation ducts do travel sound. Therefore, you may hear us walk and talk upstairs, and we may hear you as well. However, the spaces you will have access to are very separated from the rest of the house, which will provide you privacy. There is a separate exterior access for your use. Unfortunately, our kitchen is upstairs and it will not be available for your use. Please reserve only if you are ok with no kitchen access. Thank you!
