Sweet self-contained studio located in the basement of a vintage home in one of Bellingham's most popular neighborhoods, right across the street from a gorgeous park! Studio features its own fully equipped kitchen & bath. Queen Sized Bed (comfy!) and full sized sofa-bed too. Walk or Bike (several available to borrow!) to explore all around town!
This is a unique basement studio suite that has been updated with newer kitchen & bath, redwood trim, and custom details. Separate entrance and fully self-contained, so you have your privacy. It is a basement suite under the main house kitchen area and the ceilings are low, but there are multiple windows on 3 sides for daylight & fresh air if you like a breeze and it stays nice and cool in the summer!
There is a Queen size bed, a desk & chair, additional seating for TV watching, a large, well organized closet for storage, and a fully equipped kitchen & 3/4 bath. There is also a sleeper sofa (hide-a-bed) with a full size mattress. Great for kids!
There's a 40" Roku TV in the studio. The Roku TV has lots of available "channels". (Netflix, Amazon Prime (more free videos), Pandora, Ted Talks, Weather Underground, etc). We have put our credentials in for Netflix, Amazon and Pandora amongst others, so you have on demand movies and music... Tivo too - for live and on demand content from Comcast. 80+ HD Channels including HBO, ESPN, etc.
The ceiling is well insulated, so noise is minimized. Unfortunately, you will likely hear upstairs guests as they go about their day upstairs (muffled chugachug of the washing machine, coffee grinder in the morning, back door closing etc). If a silent space is a priority for you, the Hideaway is probably not a great fit for you.
Zugang für Gäste
Guests will have use of the entire suite. Entry is through a gate to the back patio passing by the back steps of the main house, but other than that, the studio space is quite private. If you are interested in biking, please let us know! We have a couple of bikes just for Hideaway guests to borrow.
Weitere wichtige Infos
This is a basement apartment in an historic home. The main house above the Hideaway is also available on airbnb: Columbia Classic. Both units can be booked together to sleep 14 if you need space for a really large group. We may be hosting other guests in the house above you during your stay. This is a basement unit, and you will hear folks upstairs in the kitchen above the studio. Feel free to introduce yourselves, and do please communicate if the upstairs guests are unruly or disrespectful. So far we have had zero issues; our airbnb guests tend to be pretty considerate or each other!
No smoking anywhere on the property, including the yard and grilling area. No pets please.
We will welcome you upon arrival and are here if you need us. We are happy to provide information about the area and make suggestions about restaurants & nearby activities, but we are happy to leave you in peace if that's your preference!
