About this listing
In-city gardeny retreat -- hens peck outside your kitchen window, downtown minutes away! Enjoy the best of in-city and residential neighborhoods, in a sweet, spacious studio with kitchen, private entrance, and all the amenities.
In this welcoming space, you'll be across the street (plenty of on-street parking!) from a great little park, and just up the hill from a walkable storefront neighborhood with boutiques, bakeries, restaurants, and a day spa. Some of the best restaurants in Seattle are within a five-minute walk...Crush, Tallulah's, Harvest Vine, Cafe Flora...or dine in -- the kitchen is fully stocked with the basics for home cooking. When you've eaten your fill, hit the YMCA just 5 blocks over, where a day membership gets you access to all of their equipment, yoga classes, and swimming pool. Those of you who like consistency with your travel will find a Starbucks and a Safeway three blocks away :-)
The unit has a queen bed (extra firm with built-in pillow top) with box spring. In addition, a twin-size futon (fold-out) can accommodate a third person.
Your own private entrance means you can come and go at any time, with no worries of disturbing anyone. Flying in late? No problem! Just let us know, and we will happily stash a key for you.
We can't wait to help you love your time in Seattle!
For those with accessibility issues: There are 12 stairs leading up to the front yard, then seven leading down to the unit.
NOTE: We love being able to offer a high-quality place in central Seattle with more amenities than a hotel (full kitchen! free parking!) at less than half the price. In order to avoid charging a cleaning fee, we ask that guests do a few move-out tasks -- strip the bed, start a load of laundry, sweep the floor, empty the trash. If you'd prefer to just pay a fee, let us know and we can add a $30 one-time fee to your stay.
Also - please note that the bathroom has a shower with good water pressure, but no tub.
Get downtown or to the easily -- 7 minutes by car, 12 by bus, or 30 on your feet.
We're also just over a block from the bus that takes you to the Seattle Center. The airport is easily accessible through public transpo as well -- short bus ride, then light rail.
Or stay home -- chill in the fenced back yard or pick raspberries in the front (they ripen in July)
Quiet time: 10:30 pm to 7:30 am.
This is a completely nonsmoking apartment.
This is a family house in a residential neighborhood -- so, you know, behave accordingly :-)
Please leave things in good shape - no dirty dishes or counters. We also ask that, before you leave, you strip beds, start a load of wash, and remove food from the fridge.
Pets are okay but have to follow the same rules as people - no scratching up the furniture, peeing on the carpet, or howling in the middle if the night. If they absolutely must smoke, they need to do so outside.
