About this listing
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 or 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 f 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.
One thing to mention about the apt is that there is a dividing beam between the living and dining space that is lower than the rest of the celling. You can clear it if you are 5'11" or shorter. Otherwise you will have to duck under it. I have placed reflective caution stickers on the beam but just wanted to warn the extra tall folks!
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!
Please do all dishes before leaving and treat the rental with respect.
Maija was very helpful. She met us late at night when we arrived and showed us to the apartment. Thanks for a lovely visit!
The good: Good location, comfortable space, comfortable bed, washer and dryer
The bad: It smelled musty (it's an exposed basement), street noise is loud, there were many cobwebs, the only bar soap was soap used by previous tenants (I did bring our own just in case), very few towels, found bathroom floor mats in laundry room which seemed clean, found coffee maker in laundry room (after we bought one).
We had a lovely stay. The apartment is cute, clean and private. It was a nice oasis in the city and an easy place to hang out. We came with our 3 yr old and she enjoyed it too. We didn't get to meet Maija, but she was available to answer questions and help us find it. We would stay here again.
Very nicely decorated and laid out. Comfortable, gardeny feeling to the whole place. Great location for getting around Seattle. We had a problem with a door closure, which was fixed very quickly and efficiently. As advertised, it is pretty easy to hear the upstairs neighbors, so if you are very sensitive to noise, that might be an issue for you. Otherwise - I strongly recommend this place and Maija, the host.
Cute little place in a perfect location for getting around Seattle. Had plenty of room and everything we needed for a long stay.
Great place! So spacious and beautifully furnished! The place is so breezy and comfortable! And AC- what a treat!

About the Host, Maija
I am an artist, interior designer, and run a small landscape business. My life revolves around beauty wherever I find it or create it. I grew up in Seattle and love this city for the people, it's natural beauty and don't know anywhere else I would rather call home. I love to travel and try to do so as much as possible and am excited to be a part of the airbnb community!
