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 #50 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.

Guest Access

Full kitchen access and laundry if needed.

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.

The Neighborhood

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.

Getting around

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 stream Netflix or 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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • We loved staying in David's space in West Seattle! It's in a fabulous location, near PCC Natural Market, several good restaurants and hang-out spots, some great parks for the kids and fun boutique and consignment shops. The space is well-appointed and most importantly, the bed was very comfortable! Had the weather been warmer we'd have spent more time on the large terrace! If you're in the area, consider this spot, it's a real gem in the airbnb world! We'd most certainly stay again!

  • The apartment is very nice, clean and comfortable.
    Good location, easy to go to downtown. There are many shops, restaurants and supermarket in the area. We will ask to stay here if we have a chance visit Seattle again.

    It was our first time with Airbnb and would definitely use it again.

  • Davids apartment is beautiful and he is a very friendly host. The room is very spacious and I had a bathroom on my own, what I enjoyed alot. The place is very clean and comfortable. The neighborhood is ok, it was a little bit to far away from downtown for me though.

  • It was wonderful to spend three days at David's. The house was everything we asked for and more! Thank you for being a great host!

  • This was my first time with Airbnb and I would definitely use it again. David’s home was beautiful and clean. I was very pleased by the spaciousness of the room and the bathroom was right next door. The location was perfect for my needs and within walking distance to my sister’s place which was further down on California Avenue. We didn’t get to interact a whole lot, but he was a great host. Staying at his home was very pleasant and a contributor to my overall Seattle experience.

  • David has a beautiful space to share that is conveniently located near the water taxi line. For those who have never been to Seattle, West Seattle is not far from the downtown center and has a stunning view of the city skyline. This apartment is clean, comfortable and run with care. Great morning light in the bedroom on a sunny day. Thanks David for a great stay!

  • David's Apt was just as advertised.
    Great location, lots of privacy, and easy to park.
    Both of us were very busy, so we did not have much time to connect.
    Found out we were both Marylanders.
    Yes I recommend.

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!
