About This Listing
Big, beautiful studio apartment in a 1902 Craftsman home, with a full kitchen & bath and gorgeous heated fir floors. 1 minute walk to dining, groceries, shops. You'll love this quiet, amazing space, and the fantastic surrounding neighborhood!
"Dreampop Studio" is 1000 sq ft of swankiness in an adorable 1902 Craftsman bungalow. Includes a full kitchen, bath w/ a cozy claw foot tub and shower, a big 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. A 40" flatscreen includes HBO & Showtime.
The space unfolds before you and you'll say "Oh wow, look at this place!" Everyone does, because this is flat out the coolest place in one of the coolest neighborhood in Seattle.
This is not an apartment or condo building with people coming and going all day. Your space is completely separate and private from the main house upstairs.
Interaction with Guests
If you're new to the area and want some highlights, I'll blabber on incessantly about my neighborhood, and even give you a quick 10 minute walking tour of all the great places to dine and shop. 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).
Capitol Hill is brimming with fantastic restaurants, shopping, and nightlife!
The house is on a serene, tree-lined street full of turn-of-the-century homes. This is truly the perfect walking, shopping, and dining neighborhood!
If you have a vehicle, I will issue you a permit for unlimited, free parking in the neighborhood.
Buses: Bus stops are just 1 block away, and most of the popular attractions are only a 10 or 15 minute trip. The #43 or #10 to downtown, Pike Place Market, Seattle Art Museum, and The Convention Center, and the University of Washington.
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.
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...
A fun day trip to the town of Winslow on Bainbridge Island is a snap from here. Walk 3 blocks west to the bus #12. It drops you near the walkway that brings you to the Bainbridge Island Ferry Terminal. Stop for treats at Top Pot Doughnuts, then pay $8 roundtrip and board the ferry. Crazy right? $8, that's it. After a 35 minute ferry ride (and maybe a glass of Pinot), you're in Winslow. Enjoy.
Back at home in Seattle...
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 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).
For a real time bus schedule download One Bus Away on your smart phone and there'll be no waiting at all! Hello 2015.
A convenient Orca Card is good on all buses, Link Light Rail, and ferries. No need to have the correct amount of cash. On request I will have a starter card here for you when you arrive, and will save you the $5 cost of buying the card itself. Average bus/rail trips cost $2.75, fyi.
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 staples to get you started + coffee, tea. Two grocery stores (Super Safeway and QFC) are within blocks.
The studio is not suited for children under 10 because of all the fancy schmancy doodads that make this place pop (snapping my fingers).
- No pets
- No smoking or overly aromatic cooking please.
- I do not have a deposit or cleaning fees. So please keep the place tidy, thanks!
We had a wonderful & unique stay at Scooter's fabulous studio. Scooter is probably the friendliest, most helpful, personable airbnb host we've ever
met, and I'm sure you'll feel the same way.
Aside from the brilliantly decorated and spacious suite, you will find information on everything there is to do in the area. Put away your tripadvisor app and take advantage of all the great suggestions, literature that are in the suite.
Perfect place in an amazing city.
The Dreampop Studio was a dream. Scooter is a great host and he quickly made me feel right at home.
The private studio is great with everything you would need for a short or long stay. I found the bed very comfortable and the living room area was very comfortable with a great TV.
Scooter gave me a quick tour of the neighborhood and gave me restaurant reviews as we checked out the area. Liberty is a great local tavern with some tasty sushi. I also enjoyed a nice cup of coffee at Victrola.
The studio is located in the beautiful Capital Hill area. Do yourself a favor and check out the beautiful homes as you stroll to Volunteer Park.
There are bus stops within a couple of blocks of the house and I found getting around Seattle very simple. The bus drivers I encountered were kind and helpful. You can easily get to many of the Seattle highlights, the Space Needle and the Public Market. You should also check out the EMP Museum. I had a blast there.
I had a great stay and I highly recommend the Dreampop Studio.
Scooter was there when we arrived, early, he allowed us entry to the apartment and gave us suggestions as where to grab a bite to eat while he finished preparing our home away from home.
His apartment is lovingly anointed, warm, cozy and inviting. Alan had just arrived from Austalia and together we found Scooter and his home inviting and restorative.
There was yogurt, milk, coffee, oats, etc. In the bathroom amongst all the lovely toiletries there was even a toothbrush should you find you've forgotten yours.
We loved the neighborhood!! Super location for playing tourist and resting up for our continued journey.
Thank you Scooter and Tim for making our stay feel more like visiting an old friends, we hadn't yet met.
Everything about this stay was wonderful starting with the initial contact, few days prior reach out to the continual communication while visiting the area with just lovely check-ins regarding our needs to fast responses when we had questions.
The studio is so much more than just a studio. It is rather large and well appointed with all needed amenities; very tastefully decorated yet with a flare to artistic.
The area is one of the best areas in Seattle. The place is located one street down on a tree lined street from a vibrant and eclectic neighborhood community that you can get everything from excellent coffee and pastries to delicious meals plus a great Safeway or QFC if you are wanting to cook in a night or two.
Scooter is in the right professional as an airbnb host; Next on the list is nominating him for a key to the city since he is knowledge, positive, uplifting and fun....he does Seattle proud.
This was my first experience with AirBnB and the bar has been set very high! Scooter was warm and welcoming. He offered wonderful suggestions on what to do and where to eat. We hope to stay with Scooter on our next trip to Seattle!
Scooter was so friendly. He went out of his way to make you feel welcome and comfortable, from the fresh lilies in the window to the refreshments he placed in the fridge for us. He also gave us recommendations on the best places to eat in the area from breakfast to lunch. We tried several and all were delicious! The studio was clean, spacious and we were extremely comfortable! Dreampop studio is in the perfect location in Capital Hill. We would definitely stay again in the future.
Scooter was an amazing host! He took the time to go over the area and gave recommendations of what to see and where to eat during our stay. He made himself available if we needed anything, and solicited feedback from the first day on. We loved the studio and felt it was spacious and had everything we needed. It's also in such a prime location-you can't lose :)
