This is a 1957 El Rey, cousin of the Airstream. It has been completely refurbished with new everything. It's like a fort for grownups. Let your inner child finally have the vacation of his or her dreams... in my backyard!

The space

Now's your chance to get away from it all, right here in the heart of the city. This is a 27' 1957 El Rey. It has been completely renovated with modern amenities, a private bathroom, shower and kitchen. No TV (hallelujah!) but we do have wireless internet, hot water, a refrigerator and plenty of space for storage and comfort.

Guest access

The El Rey is secure and private in my backyard. Once I greet you and let you in, the place is yours and I'm not nosey. I'll be there if you need me but otherwise, relax, have fun and enjoy the quiet seclusion of urban camping in retro-style.

Interaction with guests

Generally, I work from home and can answer questions and offer dining, coffee and entertainment suggestions with many options within walking distance. For a small fee, I can also drive you around, give tours as well as pick you up and/or deliver you to the airport.

It may be worth noting that in a previous life, I was a cabdriver here in the City of Seattle, but that's another story.

Other things to note

Recently, we've had one of those recreational cannabis shops open a few blocks away. If'n you're into that, it is legal and totally available. Just please don't smoke inside the El Rey. Instead, enjoy your cannabis products in one of the comfortable chairs in the yard or the hammock.

Also, the wifi signal is hard to catch inside the El Rey due to the difficulty getting the signal through the metal and wood. The signal is much stronger in the backyard or just outside the door.

The El Rey is older than my parents and it might be older than your parents, too. So, all I ask is that you treat it with respect as you would any friend's guest house. Oh and no smoking inside the El Rey!

That was a fun place to stay. It has a lot of character. We walked around Fremont and found many good places for food and drinks. Shawn’s guide was helpful too. We left a couple of beers in the fridge for the next person. Thanks!

We had a lovely stay in the El Ray. The camper is exactly as listed and had everything we needed for our stay to be comfortable. The neighbourhood is a quiet, residential street and it is a quick 15 min walk to both Ballard and Fremont both offering amazing shops, restaurants and bars. Shawn was easy to get ahold of and quick to respond to any questions or concerns. Would stay again!

This was my first time to Seattle Washington and picking the El Ray for a place to stay was a great choice. It’s a character all it’s own, prime location and a gem of a travel experience for anyone. Shawn was easy to contact and helpful with some nice suggestions on what to see and do while there. Don’t hesitate, book it and have a blast.

Excellent stay in the El Rey! We had a rental car but Uber/walking to everything you'd like to do is very reasonable. Would recommend to anyone in the area.

Such a cute and private space! Shawn was very prompt at answering messages and the space itself was clean, stylish and had everything we needed!

I'm a struggling filmmaker and single dad. I like meeting new people, making new friends and hearing people's stories. Not to worry though, nothing that you do or say will ever end up in one of my films... or will it!?
