About This Listing
SPRING SPECIAL: DISCOUNTS IN APRIL
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 best music scene.
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 (no elevator) 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 still be happy - even though it's in the middle of the city.
I own a transmedia 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.
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, personal effects and food are in the dressers, drawers, closets and cabinets. 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!
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.
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.
On-street parking is available nearby (although it can be difficult to find), as well as a paid lot right behind the apartment - and others nearby. However, it can be expensive and 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. :)

Have a great time!
We had a great time at Danielle's place. It's the perfect size for two people and is equipped with everything you might need. We never met Danielle but she left a lot of useful information in the apartment and was very fast of replying to our questions while away. We stayed for three nights and this spot in Capitol Hill was the perfect location for exploring Seattle. Her apartment had really cool art on the walls which inspired us to visit the EMP museum. Big thanks to Danielle for always answering our questions extremely fast!
Danielle was an AMAZING host. She is super organized and made the arrival process so smooth and easy. She has a killer guidebook, which I relied on heavily for my entire 12 day stay. Her recommendations are spot on. Danielle was also super quick to respond to any questions I had during my stay. The location cannot be beat, the apartment is in a nice residential area, but literally steps from all the action. The apartment itself is very nice and super comfy. Has all the amenities you could need, including dishwasher and laundry. The only thing to note is there are 2 sets of stairs to walk up to the apartment itself, and then another set into the apartment. I had a most fantastic time in Seattle, and Danielle was a huge part of making it a great stay. Thank you!!!!
This was the perfect spot for my three classmates and I. The location was near many restaurants and bars which made it easy to walk or bike around the neighborhood. The apartment was awesome; it really lived up to its name! We had a blast enjoying the apartment. It was very motivating to finish college and have our own place like this! We loved the place :)
Danielle's apartments just as she described. I had everything I needed. Checking in and out was painless. The location is in the heart of a college village with lots of great places to eat and music.
Danielle's apartment was perfect! It was cute, had a comfy bed, and centrally located to all kinds of amazing stuff. I was able to walk almost everywhere I wanted to go. Danielle was quick to respond and help with any questions that I had. I would definitely stay here again!
Danielle's apartment has lots of cool art work and books. The location couldn't be better! Capitol Hill has so many great shops and restaurants, with lots of character, and close to many other places of interest. Her apartment was clean and comfortable. We really appreciated all of the maps, Seattle magazines, and helpful suggestions offered by Danielle. We would definitely stay there again!
Danielle was excellent at providing detailed information to help us get settled in and acquainted with the place. It was more than enough room, at a very reasonable rate. Everything was clean, tidy, and ready for our arrival. Although we did not see Danielle, we did not need to because of her detailed directions. The neighborhood had great food and bar options. Every meal we had in the area was great. Although it was more residential than downtown Seattle, it was also more quiet and still walking distance. We walked everywhere and had no problems at all. Thanks for the great time and hospitality!

About the Host, Danielle
I'm a caffeine-loving, firecracker of a conversationalist who resides on Capitol Hill in Seattle. I run my own company providing transmedia marketing 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.
