Because this apartment is in the city and is so close to the Seattle Center, you will naturally hear some street noise, mostly it if the window is open. I have lived here for almost ten years and I have renters that have lived in the building for many years so the city sounds hasn't made much of an impact however if you are sensitive to noise you may wish to look for a listing further out of the downtown area. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me, I am happy to answer any questions you might have.
Thank you for taking the time to read my listing.
free wifi, everything in the apartment including the washing machine / dryer, parking when arranged in advance.
Interaction with Guests
I live in the same building. I usually greet guests as they arrive at 4:00 pm to check in however with the keyless entry and if you have a late arrival you may not see me. I am always available by phone or text if you need anything.
We are located in the Lower Queen Anne neighborhood also known as the Uptown neighborhood. This is a vibrant neighborhood with the Seattle Center and lots of access to live theater, playhouses, dance, opera, the Seattle International Film Festival, Teatro Zanzanni (a marvelous restaurant and cabaret), and there is Bumbershoot and Folk Live festivals. There are many restaurants, coffee shops, lounges, stores and lots of entertainment, this is a busy neighborhood. On the top of Queen Anne hill you will find a charming few blocks of restaurants and stores on Queen Anne Avenue the rest of the hill is mostly residential homes and apartments. One of the best views of Seattle is from Kerry Park on Highland Drive heading up the hill on Queen Anne Avenue. The lower part of Queen Anne is about a 15-20 minute walk to downtown. One of the best parts about living in this neighborhood is how easy it is to walk to just about anything you are interested in or if you don't feel like walking, there are lots of busses.
It is easy to walk to most places you will want to visit, however if you wish to save your energy you can catch a bus on Queen Anne Avenue heading to downtown and get there in under 10 minutes. If you wish to head to upper Queen Anne you will need to catch the bus on 1st Avenue North.
I'm happy to give you more detailed instruction on how to get around.

Serina was a wonderful host! She was very welcoming, and her "housewarming" treat of cheese and crackers was the perfect snack after spending the day at the Folklife festival. The apartment was very clean and has everything needed for a comfortable stay, and it is conveniently located. Serina went the extra mile with a special treat for my anniversary, which my husband was unable to spend with me. Her place will definitely be my first choice the next time I need to be near Seattle center. A very, very pleasant experience!
This apartment was in a perfect location, close to the space needle, a Safeway for groceries, and not too far from major attractions.
The apartment was really nice and clean, spacious and comfortable.
We especially loved how upon arrival we had some local pastries just waiting for us, they were delicious.
Would definitely recommend it.
The location was very convenient and Serina checked in with us shortly after we arrived to make sure we were comfortable.
Great place to stay. Very spacious and walking distance to everything.
Great location Serina was communicative and the place was clean. I recommend staying here.
This apartment is only two minutes walk to Space Needle and thus very good location. The condition of this apartment is perfect and Serina is so nice to guest! Great staying indeed
We had a great time! The location is perfect and the apartment has what you need. You can easily walk to restaurants and some nightlife, and are close enough to the major attractions. Serina was a great host and responded with helpful information quickly. She even had a few pastries (which were amazing!) waiting for us when we arrived. We would definitely stay here again.

About the Host, Serina
I'm a busy mom of three, two are teens now. When I'm not keeping up with the kids and my husband I'm usually busy as a property manager for 20 units. My newest passion is Ingress, my son got started playing it first and then my husband started playing with him. I started playing just for an excuse to walk around with, but I got hooked but time playing it now. I love the mountains and hiking with the family as well as visiting our many wonderful parks and beaches. I also love to travel over seas, some of the places I've visited are Europe, Morocco, Singapore, Mexico and Taiwan. I enjoy cooking Chinese food for my family and friends and love to entertain. My hobbies include meditation, kung -fu, and metaphysical studies. I use to be a ballroom dance instructor and still love going out dancing although admittedly I don't get out as often as I would like. I also enjoy drawing and painting and playing the flute with my kids as they play their instruments.
I really want to present a clean and comfortable living space for people to come and stay and get to know the city. My goal was to not clutter the apartment with too many personal items so that you have plenty of space to spread out and make the space your own. I hope you decide to stay with us. Warm regards, Serina
