The Nest is a charming apartment located in the Elektra Condominiums, right on the cusp of Downtown, Capitol Hill, and First Hill. Up on the eleventh floor, It looks westward over the city, and down on the convention center. Nestled at the top of the trees, the afternoon light fills it with a bright warmth as the sun traverses the sky.
The Elektra was built in 1947, and the apartment has recently undergone a green "eco" remodel. The original oak parquet floors were refurbished, and wood trim was installed using recycled old growth Douglas fir, lovingly sanded down. Both were refinished with all-natural Tung oil. The paint has no VOCs (volatile organic compounds), and compliments the newly tiled kitchen and bathroom. The total effect is stunning.
The Nest is the perfect place for anyone who craves a healthy, green living environment. No chemicals are used during cleaning, and there are plants all around. Rest assured that you can breathe easily if you are chemically sensitive or just desire a healthy place to lay your head.
Just steps from the Washington State Convention Center and a few blocks from the heart of downtown, the Nest is situated near Seattle's many cultural amenities. Just a stroll away, you will find The Paramount Theater, Act Theater, Town Hall, and countless cafes and eateries. Enjoy the Capitol Hill nightlife and all that Broadway has to offer. Even without a car, every part of the city and metropolitan area is easily accessible. Link Light Rail is a couple of blocks away, as is the extensive Metro bus lines. The apartment comes with a parking spot, so no need to worry about downtown parking, but once you arrive, you can leave it there for the duration of your stay!
All of the comforts of home are here to make your stay relaxing - and even romantic! After a soak in the beautifully tiled tub, step out onto the warm, heated tile floor. The master bedroom has a king-sized bed, which can separate into two twins if desired. There is a memory foam topper that makes the line between the mattresses disappear, so it is quite comfortable. Gaze out across the city to Lake Union from the bed, and you might never want to get up! The second bedroom has a queen sized bed, and visitors love the opening in the wall that connects the living space with the bedroom. The opening allows for panoramic views of the city and trees; close the wooden shutters to create privacy if desired. All the cozy beds have soft sheets with high thread-counts, and luxurious down comforters.
Come stay for pleasure or business. Either way, you will be equipped with a lovely antique desk, wireless internet service, cable TV, and a brand new 40" flat screen HDTV.
Make yourself at home at The Nest, and experience its natural beauty and exquisite location... in the heart of the city! I look forward to hosting you soon...

This was my first Air B n B experience and - wow! The apartment was perfect, very cozy and warm. Suzanne left a lovely basket with a bottle of wine and snacks, and there was a very generous coffee and tea supply. The apartment is right next to the convention center, which was ideal for us. I can't say enough good things about the experience.
Great space, great host, and an even better location. Its close to everything.
The Nest was the perfect apartment for my friends and I. It slept 4 people comfortably and was very cozy. The location could not be more perfect. It's a ten min walk to Pike's Market and an even shorter walk to tons of shopping and restaurants. The key pick up and drop off was also super easy. I would definitely recommend this place!
Staying at the Nest was PERFECT. Apartment had everything we needed, location for the convention center was a dream, check in/out was easy peasy and it was a tremendous value for 3 people. Hard to overstate how nice it is having 2 bedrooms.
Suzanne's place was perfect. Check in/out was simple and painless. All accommodations were just as explained and pictured. The condo is located in a quiet location, but very close to lots of local attractions. I would definitely stay here again when visiting Seattle.
Great location, cozy apartment and very accommodating host! Would recommend to anyone visiting the area!
Very clean place in a wonderful location. Within walking distance to many attractions.
Location was great, apartment was cozy and had everything we needed. Suzanne was very respnsive to messages during stay and very accommodating. Thanks.
Great place to stay in Seattle. Very central, well equipped, wifi excellent and excellent welcome basket.
My stay at The Nest was very nice. Easy access to Capitol Hill and Downtown. Perfect location! The apartment is exactly as described. Clean and tidy. It was well stocked with kitchen and bathroom items, and was decorated with comfortable furnishings. The gift basket with wine was a very nice touch and welcomed after a long travel day. I wish I would have had a chance to enjoy the rooftop courtyard... maybe next time. The bar around the corner Rumba has excellent food and drinks.
