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.
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.
We stayed here for a quick overnight stop in Seattle on our way up the coast. The space is so adorable. I wanted her to come decorate our own house. We loved it. The bed was insanely comfy. It was a little difficult to find street parking at night but during the day was fine. I have no complaints, everything was easy and comfortable. Thanks!!
The home was cozy - it had a bed, pull-out couch, full kitchen, dining table, and a clean bathroom. The space does have low ceilings (maybe 6.5'?), but there is a beam in the middle that my husband almost hit his head on (he's 5'11"). Other than that, everything was clean and in working order. The garden area is beautiful and there is a nice view. You can hear traffic a bit, but only if the doors/windows are open. I did not actually meet Maija, but my husband and I were running around a lot so I'm not surprised. The neighborhood was nice, very residential area. It didn't seem like there was a whole lot within walking distance (a couple of restaurants and an Irish pub), but it was very close to public transit which was able to take us everywhere we needed to go.
Great communication!! Maija did a wonderful job of getting me all the info I needed to ensure a pleasant, trouble-free stay.
Great spot and a good value. Easy parking and access to a main road that will get you downtown quickly. Would definitely stay here again.
Maija was very helpful in communication before and throughout our stay. She was warm in her tone even when there was a leak of water. The description of the listing was accurate, The atmosphere and setting were great!
A night's stay in this apartment was perfect! It is minutes away from downtown, but still a great price. Everything was clean, and the bed was very comfortable!
It was so cute! My fiance and I wished we could have enjoyed the balcony and the yard but even with our quick trip in and out of Seattle, it really was a perfect little spot for us to retreat to at the end of some very long days. It was clean, coming and going was easy, her directions were perfect. We had no problems. If you have a car it's close enough to Ballard Ave -- Maija was kind enough to offer up some recommendations for food. One thing I didn't ask about was parking, there is only street parking, and the first night took us a few rounds on roads nearby to find a spot, but we did get to the house pretty late.

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!
