About this listing
Big, beautiful, comfy studio apartment in a sweet 1902 Craftsman house, w/ loads of amenities. This is flat out the coolest place in one of the coolest neighborhoods in Seattle. And no cleaning fee or deposit. This is what awesome looks like!
"Dreampop Studio" is swanky... and it's big! It's almost 1000 square feet... that's a lot of swankiness!
Includes a full kitchen, a full bath w/ a cozy claw foot tub and shower, a dining table + a sunlit bistro area, living room, and lots of sleep options for up to 4 guests with a comfy queen bed, two REI airbeds, and two sofas. Also includes a washer/dryer and speedy wi-fi, + a 40" flatscreen.
This is not an apartment building or condo building with people coming and going all day. Your entry and entire space is completely separate and private from the main house upstairs. Please check your Airbnb Itinerary after booking to receive your electronic door code.
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 my 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.
This is the quieter, classic Craftsman side of Capitol Hill, yet only a 10 minute flat walk to the noisy fun hipster bars. Play there, stay here.
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.
Broadway and the Pike/Pine area are both an easy 15 minutes walk. All the cool kids do the Pike/Pine corridor where you'll find approximately 3 million restaurants, shops, galleries, and weirdos (and i mean that in a good way).
The house itself is on a serene, tree-lined street full of turn-of-the-century homes... this is truly the perfect walking, shopping, and dining neighborhood!
This is a highly walkable area to a multitude of wonderful restaurants, shopping, parks, and attractions. Walk Score is 95, Bike Score is 94.
If you have a car, I will issue you a guest permit for unlimited, free parking in our neighborhood.
The bus #8 and #43 are just one block away:
The #8 bus takes you to The Space Needle and Science Center, The Chihuly Glass Museum, and The Experience Music Project (EMP) at Seattle Center.
The #43 bus takes you downtown shopping, The Pike Place Market, the Convention Center, and the Waterfront.
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 (one queen and one single). 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. Three grocery stores (Super Safeway, QFC, Trader Joes) are within blocks.
The studio is not suited for children under 10 because of all the fancy schmancy doodads that make this place pop.
- No pets, no smoking.
- No additional guests unless by prior arrangement with host. We ask to be notified if you are having any guest to the studio.
- I do not have a deposit or cleaning fees, so please keep the place tidy. Thanks!
