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!
This is a beautiful apartment in a cute part of town. It's close to the arty Fremont District (cool statues, Theo chocolate factory), has some of it's own fantastic restaurants, and even houses a wonderful distillery worth checking out (Sound Spirits). The bed is remarkably comfortable, plenty of space, and a gorgeous garden if you're there during the day. The one caveat is this is a part of town with twisty streets and limited parking, so be aware it may take a moment to find a place to leave your car. Definitely keeping this place in my back pocket for my next trip.
Staying in Maija's apartment was amazing. She had all of the amenities a person could dream of - laundry, a closet with hangers, towels, extra linens - you can tell she put a lot of thought in putting together the space. We ended up cooking a lot and this apartment had a wonderfully stocked kitchen. It's a bit far away from restaurants and downtown, but Seattle is a gorgeous place to walk around and we had a great time hunting around for places in nearby Ballard, Fremont, and Capitol Hill!
Maija has a great little apartment. We had all the comforts we were hoping for, including everything we needed to prepare light meals. We planned this as a really touristy trip, committing our budget to entrance fees, etc, so being able to make breakfast and dinner was perfect. There is a QFC grocery store close by. We really enjoyed sitting on the covered porch with a beer in hand after walking miles around the city. Although we didn't take advantage, you can catch public transit pretty easily from here. We really appreciated the location as being right between Ballard and downtown, making day trips in any direction really convenient. Also, she has fun stencils for drawing and a "Finding Nemo" dvd. Rad.
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.
