The Treehouse is located in the Columbia City neighborhood - an historic and amazingly active neighborhood in SE Seattle. We sit halfway between Columbia City and Lake Washington - above a large urban park. Thus the Treehouse is a quiet yet accessible place to stay in Seattle.
The Treehouse is near light-rail (Columbia City Station), bus service (Columbia City/Rainier Boulevard) and bike trails. We have both on and off street parking available.
Check-in: 3:00 PM - exceptions can be made with prior 48 hour notice
Check-out: 12:00 Noon
We have stayed at the Columbia City Treehouse Apartment at least 3 times and will definitely be back. It is always clean, the kitchen is well stocked, the internet is dependable, and the cable has a variety of choices for relaxing in the evening. We can walk to restaurants, a movie theater, and some shopping. The bus and light rail are within walking distance to travel into downtown Seattle. The price is very reasonable and Jay is very responsive to your needs. This is an excellent find in a quiet neighborhood. I highly recommend this great apartment.
Our stay at Jay's Tree house Apartment exceeded our expectations! The apartment was as described and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay for three adults. The location in Columbia City was absolutely perfect and we enjoyed long walks through the beautiful neighborhood and eating at several of the great restaurants in the charming downtown. The location was perfect for catching the light rail to all the major Seattle attractions. Would definitely stay here again and would recommend to friends and family!
We had a wonderful stay at the tree house! Jay was very accommodating with our odd arrival and departure times. The apartment is located in a gorgeous, quiet neighborhood with the perfect amount of privacy. Neighbors were very pleasant and always offered a smile and "hello" while walking about.
The unit was fully equipped with a bedroom, full bath, kitchen, and living area. We highly suggest making use of the kitchen! One night we made steamed mussels from Pikes Place Market (taking precautions to not stink up the place too much). Delicious!
There are also a number of lovely shops and restaurants along Rainier Avenue within a short walk, and downtown Seattle is about 40-50 minutes away via transit. While it was a short hike (~1 mile) from the light rail (and a little less to bus lines), the walk was pleasant and helped to justify the extra latte (or three)! Having a car would probably be helpful, but it's not completely necessary if you don't mind a little walking.
