About the building: 3445 Studios is a mixed-use building with 4 dwelling units and 2 storefront retail spaces located on California Avenue SW (West Seattle's Main Street), midway between the Admiral shopping district and the Alaska Junction and uphill from Alki Beach.
Downtown Seattle is a 10-minute drive away by car over the West Seattle bridge. The bus to downtown stops a few doors away (20 min ride). The Water Taxi is also a nice option for getting downtown; it's cheap and super fun. Here in the 'hood there are many great restaurants, bars, shopping and recreation opportunities within walking distance.
Full kitchen access, and laundry if you need it.
Interaction with Guests
I am pretty quiet but I don't mind engaging in conversation when the opportunity presents itself. I do work at home but my office is separate from the rest of the apartment.
There are several restaurants within a block and a good number more within 5 blocks. Almost all needed services are within walking distance, including a grocery store, post office, nail salons, running track, two public parks, meat butcher, and coffee shops.
There is a metro bus stop a few doors away. The 55 Bus goes directly downtown, or take the 50 or the 128 and transfer at the Alaska Junction to the RapidRide C line going downtown.
Other Things to Note
I do not have cable TV. I won't mind if you use my TV to watch a DVD, but most guests prefer to watch movies privately in the room on their own laptop and I prefer that too. Also, access to the apartment involves climbing a flight of stairs. You may find this difficult if you are mobility-challenged.
Come and go as you please, but please enter quietly from 10 pm - 8 am.

Hi. I have lived happily in West Seattle for almost 10 years and in Seattle for 25 years. By day I practice architecture and manage various rental properties. Seattle is a great city for food, film, music and outdoor recreation, with glorious mountains and water nearby.
I have spent much time in Europe, lived in Frankfurt for 6 years, and speak fluent German.
Looking forward to meeting you!
