Originally built as an artist's studio in the mid-90s, this large one-bedroom loft houses 15' ceilings and a huge deck.
The top floor of this two unit craftsman is situated in a park-like setting. The Sky Loft has its own separate, gated access. It is located ten blocks from Greenlake and three blocks from Phinney Ridge. Close to the Woodland Park Zoo and Greenwood Library. Since the property is on a main thoroughfare, it is simple to get across town, downtown, I-5 and Aurora for easy access to the whole city and surrounding areas.
On a clear day there is a great view of Mt. Ranier from the bedroom, which has a full size bed, and a peek-a-boo view of downtown Seattle.
The living area has a single size futon as well as a full-size futon for additional guests.
Six miles to Seattle Center.
Free wireless internet.
Free parking spot for one vehicle.
Professionally cleaned after each guest.
Smoking allowed in outdoor areas only; using the ashtray is required.
No parties larger than five, including visitors.
We love to host and strive to make your stay as comfortable as possible.
Guests have access to the gated yard attached to the Sky Loft unit, the Loft itself, the attached deck. No shared areas except the front entrance.
Interaction with Guests
We live in the downstairs unit so we can respond to any of your inquiries very quickly. I prefer a phone call or text message. I generally am very hands-off after checking in guests so, unless you need something, we may not hear or see one another except perhaps in passing when entering or exiting the property.
The neighborhood is very walkable. Cafes, restaurants, pubs, Green Lake, bookstores and shopping are all within walking distance.
Buses galore. One parking spot included as well as plenty of street parking. From the airport, take I-5 North to 85th street exit. You can also take the Sky Train to downtown Seattle where you would get a bus. Taxi or shuttle. I'm happy to expand on details regarding airport transport.
Other Things to Note
The house is on a busier street so it's city living! Leash your pets if you take them for a walk off of the property.
Check in after 2pm. Check out at 10am. Don't hesitate to ask if you need or want early check-in or late check-out.
No smoking inside the apartment; smoking ok in outdoor areas.
No more than five (5) guests, including visitors.
No animals on the furniture. Please bring your pet bed. Add $20 tip to the cleaning fee if you bring your pets (leave a tip for the cleaner).
Great place to stay. Very spacious and nicely furnished. The gas fireplace/heater is great. Totally cat friendly. Very conveniently located; Greenlake is a lovely quiet neighborhood with an easy drive to everything in Seattle. Aexis is responsive and friendly, but also respected our privacy. We highly recommend this loft.
Cool space with a large deck, right near a bus stop that is about 20-25 minutes from downtown. Very easy to navigate from here.
Total eclipse of my heart! I truly loved the feel of the place. It was quiet, homey, and a super convenient walk to greenwood, a street with great coffee shops, breweries and tasty restaurants. I highly recommend The Yard Cafe. Aexis and Alexis where awesome..... If ya don't stay here your missing out!!!
Aexis and Alexis are terrific hosts. They were very flexible for us so my whole family felt welcome and were able to use the space as needed. Greenlake is wonderful and the skyloft is a sanctuary type space. Although it's a bit of a trek up to it, once there anything you could need is at your fingertips. I wish I hadn't been working so much during my stay as I didn't get to enjoy the deck or the artistic vibe as much as one could. The biggest drawbacks for me were the street noise at night and the temperature fluctuations. Aexis has fans strategically placed to combat (both?!) and the temp changes were partly due to the time of year I stayed here. Overall it was a wonderful little apartment! My dog and I truly didn't want to leave!!
This is an amazing space! Aexis was a great host and had everything we needed from the start. She was very accommodating and available to us without being the slightest bit hover-y. I would recommend this home to everyone. It's convenient to everything and super affordable. Gold stars all around
Lovely, clean, bright open space perfect for walking to the lake, for coffee or exploring Seattle. Very convenient to all parts of Seattle. Our host provided a very warm welcome, offered a ton of resources and was incredibly kind. It was a wonderful stay!
We had a wonderful stay in the Sky Loft and greatly appreciated all the welcoming touches Aex/Lex left for us. We've stayed in several Airbnbs and this was by far, the best stocked fridge and pantry that we've ever had! Our lovely hosts even found a high chair for our 13 month old to use. It was pretty warm while we were there, but with plenty of open windows and fans that were set up, the cross breezes and circulating air kept the temperature pleasant.
The Sky Loft is in a great location, walking distance from lots of cool neighborhoods and Greenlake. We used to live in Seattle and were excited to be visiting again and checking out all the different coffee places, parks, and trails that abound in this wonderful city. And, of course, we took advantage of the proximity to PCC!
If you are also traveling with little kids/babies and curious about how that worked out, read on! Aside from the steep flight of stairs (we had lots of gear to lug up!), it was great. The bedroom is small, but has plenty of room for a pack and play. The best part was that the bedroom is a little separated from the main living space, so when your kiddo goes to sleep early, you don't have to be totally quiet. There was also tons of great white noise for our little one because of the fan and traffic whooshing by. The floors are a bit hard, so we kept constant watch on our toddler, who just started walking a few weeks ago, but we pretty much have to do that all the time, anyway. =) She loved the ample floor space and the elevated kitchen. She kept going around and around in circles. It was also nice to be able to eat outside on the deck -- less clean up for our messy little one. And, of course, being able to do laundry in the unit itself is perfect! There were also plenty of extra linens and towels, which came in handy. No bathtub, but a pretty big kitchen sink where we were able to bathe our baby. Overall, and compared to other places we've stayed, a very family friendly home and location!
