Comfy Private Oasis on Capitol Hill

House - Private room · 15th Avenue, Seattle, WA 98122, United States

The Space

We welcome you to stay in a modern townhouse on 15th Avenue right in the heart of Capitol Hill. There are dozens of restaurants and shops within walking distance, including multiple ice cream parlors and a local food co-op. Direct buses to downtown are a half-block away, although walking only takes about 20 minutes and is sometimes faster.

This bedroom has a queen bed and private bath (including tub) and is on the 1st floor of a 3-story townhouse. Your window looks out onto the patio and you will be right next to the patio access. The townhouse is set back from the main street, so it is remarkably quiet for the urban location.

The kitchen, dining and living rooms are on the second floor. Enjoy our gas fireplace and peek-a-boo view of the Space Needle. Our kitchen, including coffee/tea and simple breakfast fixings, is available for your use.

We have a reasonable collection of good board games that you can play either with or without us.

There is street parking available and you should be able to find a spot within a couple of blocks of our place. We can lend you a guest parking pass which will allow your car to stay in a 2-hour parking spot for up to 72 hours.

This space is not handicap-accessible, and there is a steep driveway which would be difficult for someone who requires a cane or other walking assistance.

  • This was our first Airbnb experience and its hard to imagine a better one. Megan and Saul were gracious, welcoming and generous hosts. The room and apartment were pleasant and spotless and the fresh fruit cereal, coffee and tea in the morning an unexpected benefit, a great start to each day exploring Seattle. For our next trip to Seattle, we will definitely return to Megan and Saul's.

  • I had a lovely experience staying at Megan and Saul's oasis in the Capital Hill neighborhood of Seattle. There are many things to share--but the most noteworthy aspects all fall under the umbrella of "attention to detail". Staying here felt like staying with close friends--they are kind and thoughtful people and very easy to share space with. The place is clean and neatly divided--plenty of cozy common space but also plenty of privacy in guest quarters on a separate floor. There were yummy shareable food items like hard boiled eggs, fruit and cereal which helped me save money and time in my early morning rush. They lent me a parking permit so that I could essentially park my car for the duration of my trip without concern and I found street parking directly across the street. The space is very clean (and I can be on the picky side) and nicely decorated--I enjoyed sitting by the windows and soaking up the beginnings of spring outside as much as curling up on the couch by the fire later in the evening with a book. It was the perfect place to land after long conference days. My only regret is not having more time to spend here and to get to know them more! I highly recommend Megan and Saul's home for your next stay in Seattle!

  • We stayed for 2 nights at Megan and Saul's place. We recommend them highly as natural hosts. They are friendly and relaxed and we felt very comfortable. They have thought through all the details to help guests have a good experience. It was our first experience with Airbnb and we will probably use it again in other locations.
    Capitol Hill is a charming area of town. We were amazed at all the good restaurant choices close to their home. It is an easy walk to downtown Seattle and the direct bus route is very simple to negotiate.

  • Megan and Saul were the perfect hosts and lovely people. It was my first time at an Airbnb and I wasn't sure what to expect, but they truly welcomed me and helped me to navigate my way through Seattle. They put great thought and care into making me comfortable throughout my entire stay. The location is great, the house is clean, and the bed is comfy. There is even a bathtub for which they gave offered me candles for ultimate relaxation! If you're going to Seattle, you should really stay with Megan and Saul.

  • We stayed in Megan and Saul's cosy home in a fantastic part of Seattle for two weeks and were so glad we chose them. They were such warm and welcoming hosts and provided a really lovely and relaxed environment for us and our four year old daughter. We were there for two weeks which was longer than their usual visitors, however we all created a good balance between space when it was needed and friendly interaction, and they responded very warmly to our talkative little girl! The location is absolutely perfect and close walking distance to parks, cafes, organic stores and a beautiful bookshop...everything we wanted actually give we didn't have a car. The shared breakfast items were very appreciated and was a lovely addition to the wonderful hospitality. The room is small (perhaps this could be made clearer) however was enough space in the end and the other areas of the house available to us made up for the cosy bedroom. I would definitely wish to stay there again if we returned to (email hidden) felt sad to leave this very comfortable home and lovely people. thanks to you both!

  • Great stay at Megan and Saul's. Clean bedroom, organic breakfast foods, and many types of tea (our favorite drink!). Also close to one of our favorite Seattle diners--Skillet. We drove up to visit our daughter at her university, and found this place very convenient and walkable.

  • I stayed with Megan and Saul in early February. They are centrally located in Capitol Hill and can provide really useful information about places to go. The room is as advertised – clean, comfortable, and spacious. They are very flexible and accommodating. If your next destination is Seattle, this is a really nice place to stay.

  • Definitely clean, comfortable and private. Owners were very responsive. Wonderful location for exploring Capitol Hill and downtown Seattle by bus or on foot.. We had an exceptionally fine dinner at Anchovies and Olives, a restaurant only a few buildings away. We also appreciated the simple, organic, healthy food items the hosts made available to us. We would definitely enjoy staying with Megan and Saul again.

  • Saul and Megan are such warm, thoughtful hosts! I stayed here with my significant other for a business interview turned fun Seattle/Pacific Northwest trip and the set-up was perfect! Before coming, I had even asked if there was an ironing board (to which they said no, sorry) but then when I arrived the next day Saul had bought one!

    Other small thoughtful items: earplugs for sleeping (not needed because it was very quiet), water, first-aid band-aids, slippers, even an outlet with 2 USB jacks in the wall. The room itself has nice light and the bathroom was very clean (I am very picky when it comes to bathroom cleanliness). Upstairs there are puzzles and assorted games, as well as a coffee/tea table and milk/eggs in the fridge.

    We used a car to get around and take day trips while there (4-5 days total) and the free parking pass was all we needed. One night out of 4 we had to park a couple blocks away but it was Saturday so understandable.

    This was an all-around wonderful stay and very true to the airbnb style!

  • I stayed in Saul and Megan's beautiful home for six nights and would do so again in a heartbeat. Their home is spotless, has a view of the Space Needle from the living room, and best of all it's smack dab in the middle of Capitol Hill. The neighborhood was safe and full of so many things to see, eat and drink. The location of the townhouse made our trip even better because we had more time to actually DO stuff instead of wasting time getting from point A to point B. Yes, you will need to call Uber or a cab to get to Ballard or Fremont, but that's really just a 10 minute ride anyway ($5-15).

    Stay here with Saul and Megan. Not only is it a fantastic bargain, but they are great hosts that enabled us to have a great time in the Emerald City.

About
[Megan] I've been traveling since I was young, with my NYC family and then to study abroad in Scotland, Russia, and Norway. I just returned from a fun month in China. Other recent trips have been in Africa (the Seychelles, Uganda, Namibia and South Africa) and Malaysia. Even though I'm a civil engineer who loves cities, I'm strangely drawn to remote islands - the Orkneys, the non-touristy Greek ones like Folegandros, or even just the little islands in Lake Bunyoni. This summer I've gotten to explore more of the Pacific Northwest - from Bellingham to down the Oregon Coast and the California redwoods. My best travel experiences have been with great hosts, and to pay that back I would love to provide a comfortable home-like experience for our guests, including access to a fully-stocked kitchen, a private bathroom, and a bedside table. [Saul] I never traveled far from Chicagoland as a kid but have gradually been opening up to it since I moved to Seattle in 1998. My first overseas trip was with Megan to Iceland when we first met, and last year we visited Europe (London, Amsterdam & Copenhagen). I would love to visit Japan someday. I enjoy meeting new people and sharing life experiences. Megan and I stayed with friends in London on our last trip abroad and I realized that's the way I want to travel from now on. It's more personal and you can discover local hidden gems that you might otherwise miss.
