Views! Location! Stunning, separate top floor of our lovingly cared for home is like no other place in Eastlake: beautiful, quiet, with warm wood paneling, 13 ft. ceilings, and views you will never forget. One block from Lake Union, perfect for watching the sea planes, boats, and sunsets over the Olympic Mts. Away from the freeway, peaceful, and one-of-a-kind. Our village-like neighborhood, in between the University and Downtown, is a well kept secret with cafes and restaurants nearby. Welcome!
Come and enjoy this beautiful, peaceful, and happy home-away-from-home with amazing views in the heart of Seattle! Our light and airy "Sky Cabin" is one block from Lake Union (where the film Sleepless in Seattle was made). If you would like to stay in a quiet, one-of-a-kind apartment, then the "Sky Cabin" is for you. It is a completely separate unit on the top floor of our lovingly cared for three story house and has cork floors and warm, birch wood paneling that make it feel like a cabin in the sky. The tall windows faces West with views onto Lake Union, the Olympic Mountains, and even a small view of the Space Needle. You'll have a master bedroom, a large bathroom with three shower heads and a heated tile floor, an open living space/kitchen with 13 ft. tall cathedral ceilings, and another small room for doing yoga, playing music, working (there is a desk and a printer), or just meditating while looking out to the lake. It is quiet and peaceful, with skylights that let in plenty of light. The deck is perfect for watching the kayaks, sailboats, paddle boards, sea planes, tug boats, and floating homes that make Eastlake such a unique and special neighborhood. The Sky Cabin is decorated in a mid century style with comfortable furniture and feels cozy and cheerful. The kitchen is stocked with everything you need for cooking, and there are two televisions and one dvd player. Wi-Fi is included. There are plenty of restaurants and cafes within walking distance as well as easy bus access to either downtown or the university. We are 5-10 minutes by car to both downtown and the university and 10-20 minutes by bus, depending on traffic. In the Sky Cabin I have Seattle and Washington state guide books and maps for people to use while they are here, as well as various board games for those nights you just want to stay in.
No pets, no drugs, must be at least 21 years of age, no smoking inside or out, and no extra guests.
Access is to the apartment only.
Interaction with guests
We respect peoples' privacy, so unless you have questions or need help, we leave you to enjoy the apartment on your own.
Other things to note
There are 15 steps up to the Sky Cabin, so sound hearts and legs are recommended! The apartment is not child proofed, has baseboard heaters, and the 15 stairs are inside the apartment with no gate at the top of the stairs.
No pets, must be at least 21 years of age, no drugs and no smoking, even outside on the deck, and no illegal activity. Since there are other people living in the apartments below, we also ask that you please respect the peaceful nature of this house and neighborhood. No loud music or talking on cell phones outside (we will hear everything you say!). The apartment has cork floors, so our preference is that you remove shoes, especially high heels. There are electric baseboard heaters as well as one portable heater, so please be careful about not placing anything in front or on top of these as it could be a fire hazard. Close and lock all windows and doors whenever leaving the apartment, please. Thank you!

I love to travel! I like to meet new people and am friendly and helpful. I enjoy being on the water, yoga, skiing, reading, movies, and food.
