The Neighborhood

Beacon Hill, a beautiful and quiet neighborhood just a stone's throw from the city, is home to a small selection of restaurants, bars, and coffee shops which you can walk to. There is also a bowling alley, multiple supermarkets, and quaint shopping areas a little further. The nearby neighborhoods of Georgetown, Columbia City, and Capitol Hill are some of the best in Seattle - edgier and more diverse than the cookie cutter North side :)

The neighborhood is great for taking walks. A beautiful park with a 180 deg view over downtown, Puget sound, and the Olympic Mountains is a few blocks away.

Getting around

For drivers, our home is minutes from I-5 and I-90. Downtown and Capitol Hill are 5 minutes away. The home is perfectly situated to avoid the horrendous Seattle traffic but still far way enough to make parking easy. Century Link and Safeco field are a few minutes away.

Beacon Hill Light Rail station is just blocks away - walk there in minutes! Commute easily to the airport and downtown. We are also on 3 bus lines (36, 50 and 60) so it is very easy to get to most places.

Other Things to Note

We just added a beautiful gazebo with seating for 4. Check it out in our pictures! It really is a lovely private spot in our back garden, and is available from May-September

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • My husband and his business partner were well taken care of and enjoyed Jyoti's hospitality. They said the location was perfect, within easy driving distance of everywhere. Thanks.

    April 2014
  • My daughter and I really enjoyed our stay. Everything was clean and new, and we were very comfortable. I would definitely stay here again.

    November 2012
  • This is a really exceptional place in every way, and was the perfect temporary home during a stressful time as I began my new job in Seattle, before finding a place to live. They really did think of every last detail (the bottle of wine was especially appreciated! Oh, and the coffee. And the washer and dryer. And all the hangers in the closets. And the plush bed. And the DVDs ... I could go on and on). Jyoti was extremely helpful and welcoming, and just perfect to work with during this chaotic time. Parking on the street was easy, and the commute to both downtown Seattle and Bellevue on the Eastside was a breeze. Everything is brand-new and sparkling clean. All in all, exceptionally well thought-out, comfortable, welcoming and very nearly just like home. I recommend this VERY HIGHLY!!

    October 2012
  • The place was clean, and so convenient for traveling in and around the city. Would certainly stay here again.

    October 2012
  • My husband and I stayed in this LOVELY home while I visited Seattle for my belated honeymoon and brother's wedding. It was so homey and inviting, and I don't think we could have picked a better place for ourselves. The place is very clean, nicely decorated and has all the amenities you would find at any hotel (shampoo/conditioner, towels, hairdryer, etc.). Plus, we were welcomed with a bottle of red wine and sparkling water! From our communications and brief meeting with Tushar I could tell that this couple has really put their hearts into this home and into sharing their love of traveling with others. I honestly have no complaints whatsoever and plan on staying there for my next trip to Seattle! HIGHLY recommend.

    October 2012
  • We were very happy with our choice for Jyoti's appartment! It's easy to park the car and you're in Seattle in about a 10min drive. Even though parking isn't great in the city, we thought it worked out well.

    We stayed in the house with 4 people (2 couples) and really liked it. The apartment looks very new on the inside and has everything you'd want (fridge, dishwasher, microwave, everything for cooking, TV, comfy beds, clean towels).

    Communication went smooth with Jyoti and check-in was easy. We'd recommend this place to anyone looking for a relaxed stay in Seattle!

    September 2012
  • Awesome. We needed to find a place in a hurry after our other accommodations fell through, and Jyoti came through for us. It's a great place, super comfortable, and as clean as could be. This is the first place I've stayed on AirBNB that I'd seek out again when I was in the area.

    September 2012
  • We stayed with our small son for a week and enjoyed it! The apartment is great, nicely furnished, and having a washer and dryer is a plus. The location is very close to Jefferson Park & a lookout towards Downtown Seattle (walking distance). The neighborhood does not feel unsafe at all- we liked being there.

  • We had a wonderful time in Seattle. We like to have space and the freedom to move arround. Getting there and into town was great fun on the new light train. The Red Apple, walking distance, was a great place to shop for food and beverages.

  • Our trip was an unplanned visit with family. Jyoti has an immaculate space and windows that let in full light - sometimes quite necessary in Seattle! The walks to Mass, the light rail, grocery and park Let us visit in a homey environment. Essential for the needs of our trip.The entire experience was excellent. When I return to Seattle this would be my first choice for accomdations.

My husband Tushar and I have lived in Seattle for 8 years. I was born and raised in London, England, and Tushar was born in Gujarat, India. We love this earthy laid back city and take a lot of pride in this 1930 home we have owned for 4 years and renovated with love. We were inspired to rent out our 1st floor apartment after traveling the world and staying in Airbnb rentals. Now that we are done with the house we are working on the garden and growing some vegetables. In our free time we make all our favorite world cuisines, listen to records, ride our bikes, and work on our home. We consider ourselves future thinking world citizens who love good design and continuous learning. We take pride in all that we do and are happy to open up this amazing part of our home to people who will appreciate the love that goes into it. Bon Voyage!
