Make your self at home in this charming one-bedroom apartment, centrally-located on the west side of Queen Anne hill.
This elegantly-decorated, completely private apartment (bottom unit of a duplex) has an open floor plan, bamboo floors, a fully equipped kitchen, a TV, DVD player, basic cable, and a very cozy bedroom with a queen-size bed. The unit sleeps up to four (two in the bedroom and two on the very comfortable fold out couch, linens included) and includes free WiFi and laundry. The apartment opens onto a private deck, complete with it’s own BBQ, overlooking a garden and a forest of black bamboo.
The Apartment is perfectly-located just one block from the bus lines where you can catch a bus and be downtown Seattle in fifteen minutes or historic Ballard in ten. A quick five-minute walk will bring you to Whole Foods and Peet's Coffee or take a fifteen minute walk to the top of Queen Anne Hill where you will find a variety of eclectic shops, bars, and restaurants. There is no private parking but street parking is never a problem.
Three friendly folks live on the top floor of this is very clean, stylish property. It has a mid-century modern feel and a lovely well-kept garden surrounding it. You might find us enjoying dinner and drinks on our deck and you are more then welcomed to join us! Also, do be aware that although we are fairly quiet, you might hear our footsteps.
If you need any information or suggestions for fun and interesting things to do during your visit, we're all Seattle natives and will be happy to help you!
We loved our stay at this apartment! Maija was friendly, quick to get back to us, clear with directions and information and very accommodating. The apartment itself was stylish, a great size for two people, clean and adorable overall. The neighborhood is cute and tucked away from loud city life but within walking distance of stores and cafes. We also loved the bamboo surrounding the patio and enjoyed eating breakfast among it. We will definitely stay again when we are in the Seattle area!
My wife and I really enjoyed our time at Maija's place. Super comfortable place to relax. In terms of location, if you come by car, you can't beat it. Five to ten minute drive to downtown, five minutes to Ballard, absolutely a convenient place. Great restaurants very nearby in Ballard. Saved a bit of money by taking out and eating at home which was awesome. Maija was super friendly and knowledgeable about the neighbour. Thank you Maija! We will be back again!
I highly recommend Maija's place. It was quiet and private. I was surprise with her attention to detail. She has little things in the apartment that just makes you feel at home. I stayed for a week and was able to run to the gym in the morning and walk to the grocery store. The neighborhood is safe and quiet. I would definitely stay there again on my next trip to Seattle.
Maija's apartment was such a treat to stay in. Not only did it have all the comforts of home, but it also had the most delightful details that really made me want to stay in rather than go out! Queen Anne is such a great neighbourhood, and Maija is located perfectly for strolls around the hill. I would recommend you stay here if you want to enjoy the neighbourhood and have a cosy, private and beautiful space to stay in during your stay in Seattle. Thanks Maija!
Maija was a great host, answered questions promptly and the accommodations were very comfortable.
Maija's space is lovely, clean, peaceful and private. We particularly enjoyed the sense of calmness permeating the space. The bed was comfortable, as were the pillows, and we liked the spaciousness of the apartment. We hope to return in warmer weather! Only quirk we encountered was a somewhat temperamental toilet, but it was no big deal. And, although the address is on Gilman, the door seems to be on14th, which took some getting used to. We enjoyed walking up the hill (take the stairs whenever possible!) to Macrina Bakery at the top of Queen Anne.
A delightful little place. Cute and quirky but everything you need. Careful if you are a very tall person as the ceiling is low in some places.
This place was fantastic for me and 3 friends who went to Seattle for vacation (me to see Pearl Jam close out their tour). We had absolutely no complaints and communication with Maija was wonderful. Location is Perfect for getting around Seattle. We took advantage of the BBQ grill even though it was cold out. A top notch vacation rental experience.
This was a really lovely apartment to stay in while in Seattle!
We recently moved to Seattle and stayed in Maija's apartment while we searched for a perm place to live. From start to finish our stay couldn't have been better. The apartment was very comfortable for the two of us. It was beautifully decorated and nicely appointed. Internet was super fast and reliable, cleaning supplies/linens were always stocked, and the laundry room was very convenient. Also parking was no problem at all - on the rare days when we couldn't find a spot right in front of the house, we didn't have to go far for another.
The neighborhood was perfectly positioned - close the the D bus, which will get you to many neighborhoods: Downtown, Lower Queen Anne, Fremont, Ballard...You can also hike up the hill to the boutiques, restaurants and coffee shops of Upper Queen Anne, taking in the beautiful houses and gardens along the way. Maija was super nice, laid back and responsive throughout our stay. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it!
