Capitol Hill Apartment of Awesome!

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Boylston Avenue, Seattle, WA 98122, United States

Welcome to Capitol Hill!
This super rad 1 bedroom apt is right in the middle of Seattle's hippest neighborhood with fantastic nightlife, culture, hipsters, art, coffee, food & the country's best music scene.

The Space

DECEMBER 2013 UPDATE: I've just installed brand new hard wood floors in the kitchen & living room. Check out the new photos.

Hipster Haven...

Hi! Come stay in my awesome, centrally-located, Cap Hill apartment!

The 700 square foot, quiet apartment with lots of windows is on the second floor of a small 10-unit building with a gated entry & private entrance. It boasts a full bath & full kitchen (coffee & tea provided) with a dishwasher. There is a giant, comfy KING SIZED BED, an arm chair, couch, a kitchen table, lots of light & even a porch area to sit outside. I'm on the west side of Cap Hill, which is slightly more residential & quiet, so light sleepers will be happy here.

I own an integrated marketing company and represent video game and pop culture brands. I fell in love with Capitol Hill when I moved here 5+ years ago. I'm happy to give recommendations for my guests before and/or during your trip. I love this city!

While you're here, enjoy my art collection featuring works by famed regional artists (many of which are dear friends) including Justin Hampton, Jeff "weirdo" Jacobson & Jeremiah "dear earthling" Hammer as well as Tara McPherson, Glen Barr, Andrew Bawidamann, Ben Templesmith, Khang Le, Camilla d'Errico, Joel Siegel, Scott Blair & more.

Questions? Ask!

I hope to meet you soon & assist in your enjoyment of Capitol Hill.

- Danielle

Guest Access

Guests will have access to the entire apartment: kitchen, living room, bedroom, bathroom. While I often host guests at the apartment, it is also my home. So my clothes and personal effects are in the dressers, drawers and closets. I ask that you please respect this. Thanks in advance!

Interaction with Guests

I generally stay out of the guest's way during the stay. However, I'm always available if anything comes up. And I've definitely been known to hang out & have some fun with guests if they'd like!

The Neighborhood

I am located right in the middle of Capitol Hill.
Beware of other similar postings who "claim" to be on Capitol Hill! A locals definition of "The Hill" is east of Melrose, west of 19th, south of Aloha, north of Union.

Getting around

I'm within walking distance to EVERYTHING. Really!
Walk Score: 95
How long of a walk to...
-The happenin' Broadway Ave - 1 block east
- The famous Pike/Pine Corridor - 2 blocks south - home of the Capitol Hill Block Party
- Downtown Seattle - 10 minutes
- Pike Place Market - 15 minutes
- Washington State Convention Center - 10 minutes
- Bus stops to downtown/Pioneer Square or University District - 2 blocks north

Getting here from SEA-TAC airport...
It's roughly a 20 minute drive, a $45 taxi ride or a $2.50 ride on the Link Light Rail Train, which leaves right from the terminal. If you take the train, take it to the last stop: Westlake Center, which is 5th & Pike St. in downtown Seattle. From there, you can:
- walk 10/15 minutes up the hill to the apartment or
- grab a taxi the rest of the 1 mile journey or
- take a bus from 4th & Pike ($2.50/person). There are lots of options all dropping off 2 blocks away:
#43 bus to Olive & Summit,
#10 or #11 or #49 to Pine & Summit,
#47 bus to Summit & Olive.
I'm happy to help with any questions.

Parking:
On-street parking is available nearby (although it can be difficult to find), as well as a paid lot right behind the apartment on Harvard between Denny & Howell. However, you definitely don't need a car in this neighborhood. Unless you need one for something specific, I actually don't recommend the hassle of a car. When on Cap Hill, do as the Cap Hill-ers do - and enjoy the neighborhood on foot. :)

Other Things to Note

Check in/Check Out...
Check in: after 3PM
Check out: before noon

Extra guests:
I have a 6-inch foam double mattress that can be set up in the living room to comfortably accommodate a 3rd guest. Just let me know in advance so I can have it set up for you.

Hosting History:
I'm an experienced host on Airbnb. I love meeting new people & helping them to experience the city I love from a local's perspective. I pride myself on being communicative, quick to respond & ready with suggestions & local tips. Please check out my positive reviews. I hosted in a previous apartment closeby last year, so I have more reviews you can see under the "Other Property Reviews" tab. That apartment was only 2 blocks away from the current one so reviews about the location are almost identical.

Laundry:
While there is a washer & drier on the premises, I'll need to know in advance if you'd like to use it as it requires an additional key. Loads are each $1.50 to wash and $1.00 to dry.

  • Danielle is an amazing host. Why? Because she makes you feel "at home". Her apartment is like a treasure chamber, there's so much to find and to explore. Everything is labeled so it's so easy to find all the necessary stuff, how the WiFi or the heating works. The apartment is very cosy, clean and comfortable for a party of two. If you ask Danielle, she'll instantly repeat and give you hints. It was our first time in Seattle and with Danielle's apartment, we couldn't have a better "first time". If you ever come to Seattle, even for just a few days, get inspired by her apartment and the groove of Capitol Hill.

  • Danielle was the perfect host. Great apartment in the perfect location. Clean, quiet, and cost effective. I will definitely be back.

    April 2014
  • Clean. Convenient. Comfy. What more could anyone want?
    Danielle's place on Capitol Hill made it easy to walk to almost all of Seattle's attractions. In spite of the short time we stayed there, two nights, we were able to hit all of our destinations on foot.
    Danielle's place is highly recommended!

  • Three of us (I and two friends) stayed at this apartment for the duration of a conference. Danielle was a wonderful host: friendly, responsive, highly professional and communicative. You can tell she has experience working with clients outside of AirBnB hosting, but that she is also passionate about the city and wants her guests to have a good experience.
    Every query received a prompt response, and everything in the apartment was thoughtfully labeled to orient us and make us feel at home. The apartment itself is sunny, clean, conveniently located in the Capitol Hill neighborhood, and creatively decorated with art prints. It is perfect for one guest or a couple. For the three of us, using the bedroom and a living room floor mattress, it was rather small -- if intending to stay with three people, you should be close and comfortable with one another.

  • You should stay here.

    March 2014
  • Super place to stay. Clean, cozy and in a great location!

    March 2014
  • Loved the place! It is so close to all kinds of bars and restaurants- super cozy and convenient. Just wished we had remembered to buy an umbrella- silly we didn't have one in SEATTLE- sheesh. The apartment is very clean and hip and Danielle was very accommodating!

    March 2014
  • Danielle was the perfect hostess. I felt very welcome and at home in her space. She made it very easy to navigate the particulars of her apartment, and gave some great pointers about the city. She was conscientious and checked in to make sure everything was okay. I really appreciate Danielle and her hospitality. She and her city are awesome.

    Next time I'm in Seattle, I'll check here first.

    Thank you for a great experience!

  • I rented this apartment because it is walking distance to a weekend training I had on Pike Street. My husband and 8 month old daughter tagged along. It was cozy and perfect for us. The pack 'n play fit perfectly next to the bed. The floor plan is open from the kitchen to the living room so our daughter had plenty of room to crawl around safely and we could watch her while preparing meals. The location is great, walking distance to coffee shops and eateries. Danielle was extremely communicative and accommodating. We would definitely stay here again.

  • Comfy apartment in Capitol Hill. Eclectic and visually entertaining. While parking is challenging there is a pay lot immediately behind the complex. Attractions and wonderful dining are within walking distance.

Owner of Ladykiller: providing integrated marketing solutions for the gaming industry
About
I'm a caffeine-loving, firecracker of a conversationalist who resides on Capitol Hill in Seattle. I run my own company providing integrated marketing solutions for the video game and entertainment industries. I enjoy travelling, reading, volun-tourism, connecting with others, animals, knee socks and hipster-watching. I laugh a lot and am admittedly a bit ridiculous.
