About this listing

We are located just a two blocks from Key Arena and the Seattle Center. It's about a twenty minute walk to downtown or to the water front. We are also right on a bus line so it's easy to get around. This is a one bedroom apartment located on the second floor, there are 23 steps to. The apartment will provide all the bedding, towels etc and basic cooking equipment. Let me know if you will need parking, I have limited parking available and if I can, I am happy to reserve it for you.

The space

At the bottom of Queen Anne's sought after West slope; is my charming Uptown apartment. The building was originally built in 1898, has been has been updated with a modern and fully equipped kitchen. The kitchen includes a dishwasher, garbage disposal, microwave and small oven and stove, full size refrigerator and freezer as well as a washer/dryer unit.

This apartment is located on the second floor, there are 23 steps to the second floor, and has a South facing front door and is bright with a lovely cross breeze when with open windows.

There is wireless internet, flat screen t.v and a Bluetooth radio in the Living room.

In the bedroom you will find a Queen sized bed, I-phone docking clock radio, two side tables with drawers, long closet with luggage rack and hanging organizer.

We have limited parking, for compact cars only. Please check availability with me when you are booking. Parking, when available, is $5 per day.

We are just one and half blocks to Key area, The Seattle Center. We're a perfect location for the Storm Games and The Key's concerts, Pacific NW Ballet and the Seattle Opera at McCaw Hall. And an easy walk to SAM Olympic Sculpture Park and many unique shops and restaurants. Just a 5 minute bus rid to the Pike Place Market and Down Town and five more minutes to the SODO neighborhood and the Mariner's Baseball , Sounders Soccer and Seahawk's football games as well as historic Pioneer Square and the Seattle Waterfront. We are right on several bus lines and just a short walk to the monorail West Lake Mall and a quick ride connecting to the new light rail to SeaTac airport.

Because this apartment is in the city and is so close to the Seattle Center, you will naturally hear some street noise. I have lived here for almost ten years and I have renters that have lived in the building for many years so the city sounds hasn't made much of an impact however if you are sensitive to noise you may wish to look for a listing further out of the downtown area. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me, I am happy to answer any questions you might have.
Thank you for taking the time to read my listing.

This area is unsafe. My car window was broken in the parking area where the host provided. Some work equipment was stolen. Although the place is clean, it's very old and the bed is terrible. I would not recommend this location. I put the light before the door and had my gun next to me at all times.

Response from Serina:
This is the first time in five years of hosting through Airbnb that any of my guests cars have been broken into and I am very sorry that this happened to you. It is important to remember that this is a big city and you can't leave anything of value in your car, especially if it can be seen from outside. I looked up the crime rate on and the Queen Anne neighborhood was rated a 'B' and is one of the better Seattle neighborhoods. It is understandable that if you are visiting from a small town that you may feel uncomfortable staying alone in a large city. As for the bed, this is the first time anyone has said it was uncomfortable and actually I usually get complements on how comfortable it is. I'm not sure what exactly you felt that was uncomfortable, maybe it was your gun you were sleeping with.

A very clean and well located apartment. Perfect for a quick weekend visit and close to everything. Serina was very easy to communicate with and a big help in getting us around.

It was the first time my husband and I visited Seattle and we had a blast! Serina's place is conveniently located walking distance from the space needle, pacific science center, museum of pop culture, chihuly garden and glass, many restaurants/cafes, and the bus stop if you don't feel like walking 20-30 mins to pike place market/great wheel area etc. Serina made our first experience with airbnb awesome! When we arrived, there were tasty pastries waiting for us at the place, which made us feel right at home. Her place is equipped with everything you would need for your stay in Seattle (even an umbrella, which I thought was very thoughtful of her). It's very peaceful/quiet day or night at Serina's place in spite of the proximity to the tourist spots. Her place is truly a great find! We would definitely stay here again when we go back to Seattle!

My husband and I came for a long weekend away. We enjoy saying downtown and have stayed at several locations downtown (hotels and Airbnb's). This was one of our favorites! The location is great. Only a 15 minute walk from downtown or pike's place or a $6 Uber. The bed is pretty comfortable and there were several pillows. The room is cute with 2 rooms-kitchen/open space and bedroom. There was enough space for everything we needed. This is a cute vintage kind of place and we'll be back!

This was a great place to stay for the few nights I was in a Seattle! Very close to everything. I was able to walk everywhere. The apartment was clean and quiet and I slept really well each night. Easy to find, in a great neighborhood. Just absolutely loved it and made my experience in Seattle that much more memorable! If I come back for another visit, I will be booking here again! Thanks Serina!!!

I'm a busy mom of three, two are teens now. When I'm not keeping up with the kids and my husband I'm usually busy as a property manager for 20 units. My newest passion is hot yoga. I love the mountains and hiking with the family as well as visiting our many wonderful parks and beaches. I also love to travel over seas, some of the places I've visited are Europe, Morocco, Singapore, Mexico and Taiwan. I enjoy cooking Chinese food for my family and friends and love to entertain. I use to be a ballroom dance instructor and still love going out dancing although admittedly I don't get out as often as I would like. I also enjoy drawing and painting and playing the flute with my kids as they play their instruments.

I really want to present a clean and comfortable living space for people to come and stay and get to know the city. My goal was to not clutter the apartment with too many personal items so that you have plenty of space to spread out and make the space your own. I hope you decide to stay with us. Warm regards, Serina
