Eclectic, large, one-of-a-kind guest room with door into backyard. Futon bed sleeps 2; plenty of space to relax, read, play. The yard offers privacy from neighbor's view and is home to birds, squirrels and plants. We just added a little pond with waterfall and sitting area.
Kitchen, bathroom, meditation room and living room are shared. 15 minutes to downtown by car; several bus lines stop 1 block away.
Ideal for anyone looking for a tranquil retreat a short drive away from the city.
Our guest room is the biggest room in our small house in North City, Shoreline. A sliding door opens into the backyard with flowers, squirrels, birds and daytime sun (when around). It isn't a huge yard, but it offers privacy from neighbor's view.
The room has an Ikea futon couch, that converts into a very comfortable queen size bed. There is also a dresser with hangers for your clothes, 2 small couches, tables and chairs. We provide clean bedding, towels (and toiletries if needed).
It's home to many plants, books and musical toys from around the world.

We try to minimize our carbon foot print, compost, recycle and consume ethically.
We strive to be mindful of our guests' need for privacy, but are also happy to share stories and a home cooked meal if we are home all together.

We are Yasha and Peter,
we met in India while exploring the world on a shoe string. Instead of pursuing careers like our friends we spent years backpacking and trekking across the Himalayas and throughout Central and South East Asia.
People have opened their homes to us from Hunza to Borneo; we have slept in long houses, monasteries, caves, temples, train stations, bamboo huts, nomad camps, check posts and the middle of nowhere. We made friends all over the world.
Yasha is German, and spent much time in Heidelberg, Southern France, India, upstate NY and Hawaii; und spricht natuerlich Deutsch.
Peter grew up on the East Coast, studied in New York, and fished in Alaska for years.
Not long ago we settled down in Seattle and finally have a home that is big enough to share.
We are Buddhists, but respect all religions and traditions.
We try to go hiking, camping and kayaking as often as our schedule allows.
We both have full-time jobs, so you will have the place to yourself a lot.
