About This Listing
Nestled in a lush garden courtyard, this home is a quiet respite in the city. You are steps away from all that Capitol Hill has to offer--restaurants, bars, shopping, and entertainment are all within walking distance.
This quiet, bungalow-style condo sits in a residential section of Capitol Hill on a beautiful courtyard with mature gardens. Relax on the window seat and watch the sun set over the mountains. The 1950's architecture and terrific artwork give this rental a wonderful retro feel. Your own off-street entrance makes this place feel like a townhouse with total privacy. The convenient location is just minutes away from downtown and steps away from bustling Broadway.
Walk everywhere! This location gets a Walkscore of 91 making it a walker's paradise! Sensational theaters, shops, museums, parks, restaurants and coffee shops are all within easy walking distance. If you choose to drive, a garage is available free of charge.
This art-filled home has a queen-sized bed with a plush, pillowtop mattress in the main bedroom overlooking the courtyard. The second bedroom has a twin bed also with a new mattress. The bathroom has a jetted tub to sooth your muscles after walking the hills of Seattle. If hiking the city isn't enough exercise, there is a elliptical trainer in the extra bedroom.
The living room has a flat screen TV with an AppleTV for watching Netflix-on-Demand movies. Cable TV has all major premium channels including HBO, Cinemax, Starz, and Showtime. Wifi access and high-speed internet are included.
This property is not child-proofed; there are numerous hazards at toddler level. It is not recommended for children who are younger than school-aged.
Interaction with Guests
I respect the privacy of my guests. However, if there is a need, I am always willing to lend a hand.
Capitol Hill is a vibrant, close-to-downtown neighborhood. Grocery stores, boutiques, and restaurants are all a short walk away. The neighborhood is diverse: young, old, middle-aged, tattooed, pierced, urban, gay, straight, hippie, yuppie...they're all here.
There are several bus stops within a few blocks of the property. Bus and light rail service in Seattle is excellent and affordable. Most renters who get rental cars end up leaving them in the garage for most of their visit. I strongly encourage guests to take advantage of Seattle's public transportation.

Fantastic setup all around. Great accommodations and very accessible to everything that we needed to do
Tim and his apartment were fantastic! The apartment is very cozy with beautiful views when the sun is shining. It is in a quiet neighborhood that is close to great restaurants and coffee shops. We walked nearly everywhere including to Pikes Place Market and all over downtown Seattle. Tim was a very helpful and gracious host. Some things that made Tim stand apart from your average Airbnb host: 1) easy information on getting into the place before we arrived; 2) very helpful and informative book in the apartment with Tim's recommendations and tips for making the most of our stay in Seattle; 3) treats! yes, there were treats when we arrived. Tim really cared that we had a great stay.
My family stayed here on their recent visit to Seattle, since my apartment is just down the street. Our host made all of us feel extremely welcome, leaving all of the relevant information available and a nice welcome basket with local treats to enjoy. The space was beautiful and inviting, and very accurate to the listing. My brother appreciated having the privacy of a second bedroom, which is rare in the neighborhood.
We won't hesitate to have our guests stay here again! The neighborhood is walking-friendly, and my parents enjoyed being within 5 minutes of great coffee shops, grocery stores, and restaurants. Seattle's best doughnut shop Top Pot is right down the street, tucked in next to a very cool speakeasy-style cocktail bar called Sun Liquor. My family took advantage of the stay at this location and beautiful apartment, and really felt like locals in the Capitol Hill neighborhood.
Tim ensured that our stay was absolutely perfect. He was very responsive and hospitable in the weeks leading up to our visit: always answered questions promptly and had a great memory for our particular needs and preferences as tourists. Upon arrival, there was a gift basket full of delicious goodies waiting for us, as well as Tim's great insider's guide to neighborhood eateries & other attractions. We loved Tim's place -- it was very roomy and comfortable for three people -- and the neighborhood can't be beat. We hope to be back soon!!
Tim provided a great first Airbnb experience! The house was very clean, well prepped, and very comfortable. Tim was super friendly and made sure I knew my way around the house and also Seattle itself. I highly recommend Tim!
About the Host, Timothy
I love to travel! After working as a flight attendant for 16 years, I decided to put down roots in Seattle. I am a nurse now; but, I still travel whenever I can.
I moved to Seattle 20 years ago after falling in love with the city. I felt at home from the first moment I set foot in Seattle. This city has it all: The mountains, the ocean, museums, theater, culture, and world-class restaurants. There are plenty of indoor and outdoor activities to suit everyone. An added bonus: Seattle is one of the few cities in the U.S. where you don't have to own a car. I haven't owned a car since I moved here!
I moved to the Capitol Hill area of Seattle because of it's central location. You can walk to downtown in about 15 minutes. Shopping and restaurants on Capitol Hill's major thoroughfare are four blocks away.
After working in the restaurant industry in Seattle for 5 years, I have a unique knowledge of the best eateries in town. I'll be happy to make reservations for your night out. I have created a city guide with restaurant menus and reviews.
Walk-up Indonesian joint. Very popular and the wait can be long--but, it's worth it! You can take your food to the pocket park on Summit and enjoy your food in the p-patch.
Probably the best restaurant in Seattle right now. And...it's priced accordingly. In my opinion, it's worth every penny.
btw: they have the best wine-by-the-glass selection ever!
Fantastic Indian/Northwest cuisine fusion restaurant. Innovative and delicious.
