About this listing

This is what awesome looks like! Price: $120 to $170/night.
"Dreampop Studio" is swanky... and it's big! It's almost 1000 square feet... that's a lot of swankiness!

Interaction with Guests
If you're new to the area and want some highlights, I'm all over it... I'll even give you a quick 10 minute walking tour of all the great places to dine and shop in the neighborhood. Or if you're exhausted and want to cozy in right away, tuck yourself in like a potato bug... the place is super comfy and quiet, with awesome heated fir floors on chilly days, and cool like a cucumber on Seattle's sweltering days (yes we have those).
We are just a block from dozens of quaint and wonderful local restaurants, bars, coffee & tea shops, and grocery stores... everything you want is around the corner, and then you get to come home to this quiet, amazing studio apartment, tucked into the lower level of our charming 1902 Craftsman bungalow.
All the cool kids hop a 2 minute Uber (or flat 15 min walk) to do the Pike/Pine corridor where you'll find approximately 3 million restaurants, shops, galleries, craft beer, and weirdos (and i mean that in a good way).
Volunteer Park, with the Asian Art Museum, The Conservatory, and the historic brick Water Tower (with observation deck) is just a 10 minute walk north.
The house itself is on a serene, tree-lined street full of classic Craftsman homes... this is truly the perfect walking, shopping, and dining neighborhood!
This is a highly walkable area to lots of wonderful restaurants, shopping, parks, and attractions. Walk Score is 95, Bike Score is 94. Capitol Hill also has a new light rail station (just 8 blocks west on Broadway) so now it's even easier and faster zooming around the city. And of course there's Uber & Lyft as an option to zip you around the city. Bus stops are just 1 block away.
If you have a car, I will issue you a guest permit for unlimited, free parking in our neighborhood.

You can bounce between Seattle Center & downtown on our super cool Monorail, built for the 1962 World's Fair for Elvis Presley. Not really.... although he was here making the movie "It Happened at The World's Fair". Elvis plays a crop duster. The more you know...

Other Things to Note
Queen-size bed sleeps two. Additional guests can be accommodated with comfy REI air mattresses (1 queen and 1 double). There are also two sofas you can easily doze off to dreamland on, while watching Sleepless In Seattle, which of course I saved on the DVR for you.
The kitchen has everything to get you started, plus coffee and tea. Four grocery stores (Super Safeway, QFC, Trader Joes, Central Co-op)) are within blocks.
The studio is not suited for children under 10 because of all the fancy schmancy doodads that make this place pop. Also, We do have a little Westie dog (Bart), but he does not have access to the studio.
I do not have a security deposit or cleaning fees, so please keep the place tidy. Thanks!
My name is Scooter, real name is Michael but there are way too many of those, so I go by my nickname Scooter. I am a photographer, shooting mostly portraiture and weddings, and some travel work. I love to BBQ, travel, and adore my city, Seattle.
I enjoy long walks on the beach. I also enjoy short walks, it all depends on how much time I have.
