I love love love living here. This is my Dream House where I want to spend the next 5-10 years, but while I'm traveling I'm happy to let other enjoy it.
The crown jewel of this place is the rooftop hot tub, with views of the Space Needle, downtown Seattle, Puget Sound and the Olympic mountains. The tub sits on a private rooftop deck that is only accessible via this townhouse.
The townhouse is located smack dab in the middle of everything awesome about Capitol. Pike/Pine is 4 blocks away, Broadway is 3 blocks away and 15th Ave E is 2 blocks away. There is a big Safeway 2 blocks from here, buses to downtown are a 1/2 block away, or you can walk downtown in 10-15 minutes.
Capitol Hill is the liveliest neighborhood in Seattle, with plenty of coffee shops, bars, restaurants and stores with a bit of character.
You'll be getting the master bedroom & master bathroom, on the third floor of the townhouse. You will have one roommate, Aaron, whose room is on the first floor. The townhouse is roughly 1475 finished square feet plus the 350 Sq Ft rooftop deck. The townhouse has 2 bedrooms and 2.25 bathrooms (full, 3/4 and half). The full is off the master.
A covered/secure parking space is possible if we plan ahead and I move my car before your trip - let me know if you're interested. Parking during the day here is easy but on weekend nights we can get a small amount of spillover from the commercial areas.
Hot tub not working when we were there, and had told that it would be upon booking. Other than that, good location, very nice to have a parking spot in that neighborhood in Seattle, and very nice views from the roof. Good bed and very nice bathroom.
Had an awesome stay at Chris's place for a business trip! Chris was super responsive and easy to get ahold of when I needed anything.
I brought a rental car with me that I was able to street park with his permit. It takes a round or two around the block to find a spot, but I found didn't take more than 10 minutes on average.
The hot tub with a view was also really nice.
We were able to meet Chris momentarily before he left for the weekend. His space had everything we needed and the rooftop amenities were sweet. Great spot for relaxing and just enjoying the view. Also, his flat-mate was super chill, friendly and up for providing recommendations for restaurants, bars and just about anything you'd be looking for in the surrounding area. Comfortable, clean space complemented by hosts w/ pleasant personalities. Would definitely book again.
Chris's room is in a great location and we were given heaps of help and recommendations for getting the best out of our brief stay in Seattle.
A friendly and relaxed couple of guys who couldn't do enough to make sure all was satisfactory.
Very impressed with the great bathroom.
Not only was Chris super nice and accommodating, but his flatmate, Aaron, who we shared the apartment with, was also great company! Chris was very flexible with our check in/ check out time, we enjoyed sleeping in a very comfortable bed, we made use of the rooftop hot tub twice, wifi worked great, he has a really nice shower, and the neighborhood is really ideal with shops and restaurants very nearby.
I'd recommend Chris's place to all Airbnb guests looking for a perfect stay in Seattle's Capitol Hill district!
If you're looking for a place to stay in Seattle, you can pretty much stop looking and just decide to stay with Chris. You can't go wrong! The apt is well designed, spacious, and immaculate; it's also in the middle of everything in capitol hill.
Chris is great talk to about exercise and the Paleo diet, and his roommate Aaron, is the to go-to-guy for post-work conversations and hang-outs in the apt. I couldn't of asked for a better air bnb experience.
Chris' place was amazing! Beautiful, clean and well placed to everything Capitol Hill has to offer. Check-in was easy and Chris was immediately available for any questions or concerns we had. Would definitely stay again.
Chris' place was lovely. Our stay was smooth and easy. Highly recommend.
It was such a pleasure meeting Chris that we were actually a bit sad he was leaving town for the week! Interesting host with great local tips. And if you're into paleo living, cycling, welding, or fitness, be sure to pick his brain.
Awesome features of this condo:
-Rooftop deck with hot tub and fancy schmancy smoker grill! We used it daily and enjoyed the view of Seattle and the stars over the mountains.
-Big huge spa-like shower
-2 short blocks to the Safeway for groceries and microbrews.
-Great location in eclectic Capitol Hill, a 5-6 block walk to Pike/Pine, the 15th street area, and lower John St. Very close to several bus lines (buy an ORCA card and your transfers are free or cheap. Pays for the $5 card fee very quickly!)
-4 floors in this condo. Not a good choice for young children or those fearful of quad exercises
-No A/C. We were there on very rare 90 degree days, so this will not usually apply. But they do have cool radiant heating for more typical Seattle weather.
Chris' place is in a great location. We had a great time walking to restaurants and bars in the area. The view from the roof was another plus. There were some hiccups with the check-in process, but it seemed like a one-time occurrence. Chris was apologetic, understanding, and gracious.
