Is Seattle to be your new or temporary home? Need a short-term home base for a life change? Looking for something local, authentic, warm and friendly instead of bland, corporate-managed housing?
Come live in a private room in a beautiful Ballard home, fully stocked and furnished to your needs, a kitchen of gourmet conveniences and space tailored to suit you. Occasional in-house social events including a variety of ages, races and interests, bring new friends directly to you.
Short-term, flexible furnished housing for those:
* stepping into a demanding new job,
* here as a traveling nurse or medical resident,
* trying a marital separation,
* not sure where they want to buy/lease housing yet,
* tired of inconsiderate roommates,
* want their internship to be more than a job
* needing a solid, supportive household to drop into, or
* who want new friends without the daunting "Seattle freeze."
This is a roommate situation! You will have one roommate, each person has their own bedroom. The kitchen, bath, on-site laundry, and living areas are shared. No pets live here.
Available after 8/16/2019. Phone interviews are available now for roommate screening and discussing details (yours and ours). More photos available on request. Property showings and tours begin 8/17 if we don't have a deposit and sublease agreement already signed beforehand from someone out-of-town (that's usually what happens, though). If this sounds perfect for you and you are planning 3-6 months in advance, SAY HELLO, we tend to have 2-3 month short term interns and contractors and you might be the next-next future resident.
