The Space

At the bottom of Queen Anne's sought after West slope; is my charming Uptown apartment. The building was originally built in 1898, has been has been updated with a modern and fully equipped kitchen. The kitchen includes a dishwasher, garbage disposal, microwave, oven and stove, full size refrigerator and freezer as well as a all in one washer/dryer unit.

This apartment is located on the first floor, there are 5 steps to the East facing front door. The apartment is bright with a lovely cross breeze when you open the windows. The apartment accommodation up to four people, there is a queen size bed and in the living room, the couch pull out to make a full size bed. There is wireless internet, flat screen t.v and a Bluetooth radio in the living room.

In the bedroom you will find a Queen sized bed, I-phone docking clock radio, two side tables with drawers, wall to wall long closet and luggage rack.

We have limited parking for compact cars only, please check availability with me when you are booking. Parking, when available is $5 per day for outside parking.

We are just two blocks to Key area, The Seattle Center. We're a perfect location for the Storm Games and The Key's concerts, Pacific NW Ballet and the Seattle Opera at McCaw Hall. We are an easy walk to SAM Olympic Sculpture Park and many unique shops and restaurants. Just a 5 minute bus rid to the Pike Place Market and Down Town and five more minutes to the SODO neighborhood and the Mariner's Baseball , Sounders Soccer and Seahawk's football games as well as historic Pioneer Square, The international district and the Seattle Waterfront. We are on several bus lines and just two blocks to the Seattle Center and the monorail which will take you to West Lake Mall and a quick ride connecting to the new light rail to SeaTac airport.

Check in time is at 4:00 pm and Check out time is at 11:00 am. If you need to arrange an earlier or later check in please let me know and I will do my best to accommodate your requests. If I am unable to accommodate your request, you can drop off your luggage while the room is being prepared or I can hold it until you are ready to pick it up.

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.

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.

The Neighborhood

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.

Getting around

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.

  • A very nice spot that was indeed just minutes away from Seattle Center. Not a bad walk and an easy bus ride to downtown. Checking in and out was a breeze. Clean and comfortable. Thanks very much, Serina!

    The apartment was awesome, very clean, and superb equipped (including a Keurig coffee maker, washing machine and dryer + detergent, dishwasher + soap, huge fridge w britax filtered water, ironing board and iron as well as all kitchen and bath basics one needs).
    The location was excellent, walking distance to all major sights. We would definitely stay here again. Highly recommended to everyone!

  • Serina was a lovely host. She was available to show us around. This apt was fantastic. Coffee pot, washer dryer, tv, bluray player. The beds were very comfortable. The apt is located 2 blocks from the space needle, IMAX theater, Chahuley museum and more. Up the block are a variety of wonderful restaurants and a grocery store with prepared foods. A wonderful place to stay.

  • Nice, clean apartment with (surprise) washer / drier. Great access to Seattle Center and Lower Queen Anne. Thin walls. Bring earplugs.

  • Wow, our first experience with airbnb and we picked a winner. The apartment fit our needs perfectly for a three day stay. The listing information on airbnb was exactly what we found upon arrival; a clean, comfortable, safe and central location right on the edge of downtown. As the listing clearly stated, there was ample public parking available including free overnight on street parking but it took some effort to figure out where the deals were for day time hours.
    High recommendations from us and we hope to return in the future.

    Response from Serina:

    Hi Kevin, I'm so glad that you enjoyed the apartment. I am sorry about the parking though, I should have been better at communicating with you about that.
    I hope that you can come back soon and I'll be sure to have parking for you, no charge.
    Best regards,

  • Serina's place was nice, clean and in a convenient location. There were several thoughtful touches -- a few DVDs to watch, a coffee maker in the apartment. And the pastries left for us were a pleasant surprise!

    June 2014
  • Serina was great! She was very thorough in her emails and had a guide book with a lot of information at the house. The place was clean and had all the shower necessities needed. I would wholeheartedly recommend staying here!

Property manager, Inn keeper
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
