The Nest in the Heart of the City

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Hubbell Pl, Seattle, WA 98101, United States

The Space

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...

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Our stay at the Nest was an absolute delight! The Nest is well-appointed in every way--kitchen is stocked up with cooking supplies, tea, coffee, spices and other kitchen basics; the bedrooms are spacious and the beds are so comfortable; the bathroom is renovated; the living room is perfect for hanging out and cozying up with a cup of tea. The location is excellent, just a couple of blocks from all the bustle of downtown, Pike Place Market, Link and bus lines, etc. We had a group of 4 adults and there was plenty of room for everyone. Suzanne is truly a pleasure to work with--accommodated our needs and made our stay incredibly easy and comfortable. I highly recommend this place and will absolutely try to stay here again in the future!

  • 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.

  • 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!

Hello fellow travelers and guests! I love to adventure, meet people, create beautiful spaces, and share my home with guests. I've been renting out my sweet cottage for the past few years, and I love to see how happy people are when they get to experience this special place. I used to live in the cottage myself, so much of me is still in there. I recently completed a renovation on a beautiful condo in Seattle that I just started renting out as well, so come stay at "The Nest in the Heart of the City!!"
