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.

The Space

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.

The Neighborhood

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.

Getting around

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.

Other Things to Note

The enclosed garage is a shared space with the owner's Vespa and bicycle. Cars larger than average will not fit. If renting a car, please choose the most compact in which you will be comfortable. No SUVs, vans, or wagons.

  • 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!

  • Tim was great. The home was lovely. Very comfortable. We felt very lucky to have ended up here. Capital Hill fantastic. Best donuts 2 blocks away. And a garage to make life easy! Tim has set the set pretty high! It was perfect. Kathy and Molly 6/4/2014

  • A friend and I were in Seattle for a conference and stayed at Tim's sweet duplex. Tim left the place well-stocked with treats and linens, etc. It couldn't have been cleaner or cuter! Great art, too. I would definitely recommend.

  • Timothy's apartment worked out perfectly for our family.
    We came to Seattle to spend time over the Holidays with our sons.
    Timothy greeted us at the apartment, gave us a quick tour and directions for appliances and then left us on our own. He was accessible if we needed him, but we had the place to ourselves. It was a perfect location at the bottom of Capitol Hill. It was an easy walk up to Volunteer Park or a nice walk down to Sculpture Park or Pike's Market. The apartment was clean and the bed was comfortable. We did some cooking and the appliances all worked. There were many restaurants nearby to enjoy all types of food.
    We definitely recommend this apartment!

  • Staying at Timothy's beautiful home in the Capitol Hill neighborhood was one of my best Airbnb experiences. Although we didn't get a chance to meet because he went out of town for the Thanksgiving holiday, he made sure that everything we needed was there, and was accessible by phone. I was traveling with my daughter and her husband and my 2 yr old grand-daughter, and it couldn't have been more perfect. The home is charming in every detail, and Timothy provided us with a beautiful welcome basket and an excellent guidebook for the city. We felt like we were in a 4 star hotel with the wonderful beds, the beautiful artwork in the apt., and all of the top notch kitchen furnishings. I also appreciated having access to the garage as finding street parking in Seattle can be difficult. I'd love to come again as we all felt so at home. Many thanks Timothy for making our holiday so memorable.

  • We had a wonderful stay at Timothy's apartment! I would highly recommend if you are going to Seattle! Timothy was very responsive and helpful. The place was very clean and comfortable.
    When I visit Seattle again I would def like to stay at Timothy's again!

  • My family had an amazing time staying at Timothy's property for a long weekend in Seattle. He was very prompt responding to my questions and welcomed us with delicious gifts from local producers which was a great way to start learning about the city. We were charmed by and extremely comfortable in his well-appointed property. We had everything we needed. Also, the location in Capitol Hill meant we could walk almost everywhere we needed to! Next time we are in Seattle, we'll definitely try to stay at Timothy's!

  • Thanks to Timothy for sharing his lovely Capitol Hill apartment with us! The thoughtful touches on arrival made our trip from the east coast much easier. Wine and chocolate! The location was perfect and we were able to walk to dinner. The beds were very comfy. It was so convenient to have the use of the garage. Sadly, Tim wasn't there to meet us but I hope to have that pleasure on my next trip to Seattle.

  • nice, spacious apartment. very clean and timothy was an awesome host. there was an entire book on the coffee table with local (great) recommendations that was very helpful. timothy was very conscientious, leaving milk and cold, filtered water in the fridge and checking in by email periodically to make sure we were doing okay. the location is PERFECT, right in the heart of everything. great restaurants and coffee shops within walking distance, and being in the center of the city made it easy to visit every neighborhood in seattle. would definitely recommend this apartment!

    September 2013
  • Tim is a great host! He left a welcome basket for us, information about Seattle, and accommodated our flight times. The condo is clean and comfortable and in a great location. I have recommended it to friends and family.

About
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 (email hidden) with restaurant menus and reviews.
