Huge loft-like space (900+ sq ft) in a gorgeous 1902 Craftsman home. Full kitchen, gorgeous fir floors. 1 minute walk to restaurants, groceries, & shops. You'll love this quiet, amazing space, and the fantastic surrounding neighborhood!
"Dreampop Studio" is a super swanky and spacious (900 sq ft) space in a gorgeous 1902 Craftsman bungalow, on a beautiful tree-lined street.
Includes a big full kitchen, bath, dining area, living room, desk, and a comfy queen bed, and laundry.
There's room to dance if you want to. So much better than a hotel room, you'll love it!
This is not an apartment building with shared walls and 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.
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 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 Craftsman & Victorian homes. This is truly the perfect walking, shopping, and dining neighborhood!
If you have a car, I will issue you a permit for unlimited, free parking in our neighborhood.
Bus stops are just 1 block away, and most of the popular attractions are only a 10 or 15 minute trip. Check it out:
The #43 westbound goes to downtown, Pike Place Market, Seattle Art Museum, and The Convention Center. Same bus Eastbound to 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.
Bus #10 zips to downtown and back up to the QFC grocery store, just one block west of Dreampop Studio.
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 $2.50, 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.
Kitchen has staples to get you started + coffee, tea, etc. Grocery store (QFC) is just one block away. What? Really? It's true.
The studio is not suited for children under 12 because of all the fancy schmancy doodads that make this place pop (snapping my fingers).
- No smoking, no pets.
- I do not have a deposit or cleaning fees. So please keep the place tidy, thanks!
Scooter is great. Such a warm and friendly host. The studio exceeded all expectations. It had a fun, comfortable vibe and was clean and had all the amenities we wanted. Scooter took us on a 10 minute tour of the area. So many great restaurants and shops around the area. He's very accommodating. He gave us a map of the area and showed us all the public transit areas and major spots to visit. Such a great host. Definitely recommend the Dreampop Studio!
Scooter is a super nice host. He is thoughtful and warmly caring, not only in welcoming our arrivals but also very helpful in helping us to get to know Seattle. My wife Melody call the place Home Sweet Home because the decoration is warm and the place is spacious and clean. Everything we need is there and Scooter is available anytime if we have any questions. The location is quiet but super convenience to get to down town and other locations. Two Thumbs Up for our super host and the place. Oh, we will not forget the cute lovely Bart! Don't wanna say goodbye and surely highly recommend Scooter's place if you want to have a nice and pleasant stay in Seattle.
This is the most wunderbar Airbnb ever. The suite is a great mix of cozy and funky, it's well equipped, and the sofas are sooooo comfy. The neighborhood is great -- steps away from tons of great restaurants , coffee shops and grocery stores, and right near the transit line. And Scooter totally rocks as a host. He truly cares about making his guests stay as comfortable and memorable as possible. I've already rebooked for another stay. Thank you for creating such a great space, Scooter!
If you are heading to Seattle for the first time, or anytime, Scooter's Dreampop Studio is the place to stay. First off, the place is huge and incredibly welcoming. Literally everything you need in a home away from home is here, but this place comes with the friendliest host who will help you make the most of your Seattle visit. Even if you have a little jet lag, you must join Scooter as he shows you his part of the Capital Hill neighborhood. Arguably the best neighborhood in Seattle according to the locals we chatted with, Scooter's 15th street is filled with great restaurants, a delicious bakery, and a whiskey bar to finish off your night. Scooter will set you in the right direction to see the sites and neighborhoods of Seattle. The Dreampop Studio is a block or less from three different bus stops heading all over the city. If you're like us and enjoy walking, you can easily stroll downhill to Pike Place Market or explore Volunteer and Interlaken parks on your way to the University of Washington campus. You must visit Ballard Street during your stay, and if the weather is nice, take the ferry to Bainbridge Island for some wine tasting.
In the end we couldn't have asked for a better location with an incredible host! Thanks again. -Johnny and Adam
CANNOT BE BETTER is the only word I can say about our experience with Scooter. Scooter is the best host I have ever seen! We had an ENTIRE floor as our private space. Scooter is very very nice and supportive. I am sure I will be back here again with Scooter next time.
We had a fabulous stay at the Dreampop Studio. It was truly a dreamy stay! Capital Hill is a lively neighborhood with restaurants and coffee shops just a couple blocks away. The studio itself is visually stimulating as well as comfortable, quiet and well cared for. Scooter is an extremely gracious host that is attentive and helpful. He will bend over backwards to help you find the experience you are searching for while staying in the Seattle area. Hurry and book now! It is a popular place and having stayed there, we now know why! We would love to come back for a visit. Thank-you Scooter!
Scooter is the best. He is warm and welcoming with lots of great ideas for where to go and what to do in the area of his home and also downtown and other areas in Seattle. It was a very comfortable space and I felt right at home.
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 love exploring new surroundings, tech, coffee, and at the end of the day some quiet time.
