About this listing

Queen Anne Hill is a charming neighborhood with historic old homes, located just up the hill from The Seattle Center: close enough to be convenient to everything, yet just far enough away from the traffic, hubbub and commotion of downtown!

Our Victorian was built in 1904.

The Space

Be close to everything!

Queen Anne Hill is a charming neighborhood with historic old homes, located just up the hill from The Seattle Center: close enough to be convenient to everything, yet just far enough away from the traffic, hubbub and commotion of downtown!

Your basement apartment in our home on Queen Anne Hill is just minutes from The Seattle Center (The Space needle, Pacific Science Center, IMAX Theater, Experience Music Project, International Fountain, Seattle Repertory Theater, Pacific Northwest Ballet, Seattle Children's Theater, and the Gates Foundation complex next door.) Eileen walked home from work every evening right past the Seattle Center. Plus, Seattle Pacific University is on the other end of The Hill.

Your private basement apartment in our 1904 home has its own side entrance and is just a block from “The Ave" (Queen Anne Avenue) where all of your wishes can be satisfied, without ever venturing off the hill. In a six block stroll down The Ave, you'll find over twenty restaurants and cafes, coffee houses, numerous shops and boutiques, kids' store, four banks, exercise/fitness studios, two grocery stores (including Trader Joe's just 1 1/2 blocks away), and much more! Plus, our neighborhood has numerous parks and a community swimming pool (just two blocks from our house.)

Your home away from home is just a ten to fifteen minute bus ride to The Pike Place Market and downtown Seattle. A few blocks further and you're at The Seattle Art Museum and from there it's just a walk down the steps to the waterfront. (There's a bus stop two blocks from our house.) You are just 4 1/2 blocks from Kerry Park lookout, where more photos are taken of Seattle, the Space Needle and Mt. Rainier than from any other spot!

Your private suite includes a small kitchen (stocked with pots, pans, dishes, silverware, glasses, cups, bowls, etc.) with refrigerator, stove with oven, microwave, toaster and coffee maker; small bathroom with shower, soap, towels and hair dryer; bedroom with very comfortable double/full bed, including sheets, pillows and blankets; dining and living room; free fast Wireless Internet, cable TV, VCR (and 30+ movies), separate private entrance, and use of the elliptical cross-trainer and stationary bicycle, and the laundry room with washer & dryer. Your suite comes complete with an inflatable twin bed, pillow and linens, although most needing a second bed have slept on the couch. You'll find oodles of sightseeing information and local maps in the suite too. Street parking in front of our house is free (just ask for our guest parking pass.) Guests have described our suite as comfortable and cozy. If your tastes lean towards shiny and chic, then our suite may not be for you, as our house is over a hundred years old. We live in the house on the floors above the apartment. You won't hear an ice machine and banging pipes like you did at the last hotel you stayed at, but you may hear us above until 10:30pm. Please note: NO SMOKERS! Our house is smoke-free.

And at the end of the day, you can relax with a glass of wine or cup of tea in the afternoon sun on our west-facing brick terrace. You'll listen to the bubbling fountain while completely surrounded by shrubs and trees - our own little green oasis in the middle of the city!

If you are getting about without a rental car, light rail can take you from the airport to Westlake Plaza in downtown Seattle. Bus connection is on Third Avenue (a block from the Westlake light rail station) and deposits you within two blocks of our house.

We thank you for considering our private basement suite on Queen Anne Hill, and hope we have the opportunity to help make your Seattle visit a memorable one!
