About This Home
"The Dawg Pound" is great for travelers on a budget who want a clean, well furnished home. This is a basement unit with separate entry from the house above. The house above ("Hawks' Nest") has 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms and can sleep up to 16. The homes may be rented in combinations, but note that there is no internal access between the homes.
The Dawg Pound has a small bedroom (without door) with full over full size bunk bed. There is a set of drawers in the bedroom, with a wardrobe for hanging clothes located off the living room.
The living area has a large TV with cable service (a robust program package is offered). High speed Internet is included.
There is a small, clean bathroom with shower.
This is a basement home with low ceilings and some windows offering daylight.
Each of our homes has been decorated to pay homage to a meaningful facet of our lives. This home ("The Dawg Pound") will soon have a theme celebrating the local University of Washington athletic programs.
Guest accessAccess to the home is provided without a cumbersome lock box or key exchange. Instead, you will choose a 4 digit code, and the electronic lock to the home will be programmed with your code for the duration of your stay.
Interaction with guestsYour hosts, Andy and Lynne, live in the neighborhood. We are here to welcome you and help you with any of your needs during your stay. We are happy to offer you advice for sightseeing, and restaurant recommendations.
Guests will receive, in advance, our comprehensive homemade visitors' guide to Seattle, packed with our personal recommendations for dining, activities, and much more.
Do you plan to cook during your stay? By special advanced arrangement (depending on availability), we will fulfill your grocery list and have your home stocked for your arrival.
This home is central to everything Madison Valley, Capitol Hill and Central Seattle have to offer: great restaurants, parks, hiking, supermarkets, day spas, and more.
Your hosts made this neighborhood their home in 2011 and haven't looked back since. We love walking the streets of this neighborhood, and we will gladly suggest fun walks depending on your interests. Stroll to the beach at Madison Park. Walk by multi-million dollar estates. Discover hidden neighborhood gems such as the farmhouse with horses in the yard and the home that doubles as an eclectic art studio and antique truck gallery. Take a walk through the fabled Arboretum to Lake Washington.
Once you have worked up your appetite, enjoy the countless restaurants that Madison Valley ("Little Paris"), Madrona and Capitol Hill have to offer. In addition to French gems, try our favorite tapas restaurant or the best Japanese food east of Tokyo. Take your morning coffee in one of numerous bakeries. Or opt for Thai, pan-Asian, craft pizza, Tex-Mex or more.
Our home provides easy access to Downtown (Pikes Place Market, Seattle Art Museum, Seattle Great Wheel), Seattle Center (Space Needle, Chihuly Glass Museum), South Lake Union (MOHAI), University of Washington, and Capitol Hill. All are accessible by car, bus (numerous bus lines a few blocks from home), or for the adventurous, by foot.
If all of this touring (and eating) has you tired, pamper yourself with a visit to a day spa or nail salon. There are several of each within a few blocks of home, and we are happy to point you in the right direction.
Getting aroundThis home is located close to a bus line that offers direct access downtown and easy connections to South Lake Union and the University of Washington. Queen Anne, Ballard, and Fremont are more easily accessed by car. Street parking is plentiful and free.
