Located in the heart of Capitol Hill, Seattle, this completely private, petite studio apartment is perfect for a single traveler or couple.
A separate entrance off of a lush and green back yard garden leads you to a petite space with full amenities. The apartment is an oasis of quiet just a minutes’ walk from some of the best restaurants and bars and cutting edge art in the city. The location is a perfect mix of serene and bustling, urban and sanctuary.
The studio is outfitted with a full, galley kitchen and a spa-like bathroom with a separate w/c, shower and custom, 3x4x4 concrete Japanese soaking tub. There is an extremely comfortable pull out sofa bed in the main room. (really!) We are world travelers and have spent many a night on an uncomfortable bed - you will sleep peacefully on this smartly engineered sofa bed.
Guests have access to their private apartment and their own off-street parking spot. (detailed information provided at time of booking). The back yard / garden is also available to sip morning coffee or hang out with the chickens.
We respectfully request guests don't pick the vegetables in the garden without asking first.
Your privacy is our main concern. Expect a peaceful stay. Minimal to no interaction.
Capitol is a foodies’ heaven. Choose to eat in one of the dozens of world-class restaurants in the neighborhood – Lark, Marjorie, Restaurant Zoe, Anchovies and Olives, Spinasse, Bario, Sitka and Spruce – the list goes on. If you decide to use the full kitchen and eat in, you can shop in our local, organic co-op or at Melrose Market, where will find purveyors such as the local butcher Rain Shadow Meats, Taylor’s Shellfish, and the cheese shop Calf and Kid.
Art wise, Capitol Hill is the “Greenwich Village” of Seattle. Urban and cutting edge, new visual art, film, theater and dance performances are within walking distance. Witness the flavor of Seattle’s local art scene at Northwest Film Forum, Velocity Dance Center, Washington Ensemble Theater and Annex Theater. Tour new visual art galleries such as Vermillion, Ghost Gallery and Ltd. Art Gallery. Or take a five-minute cab ride to larger art institutions such as Seattle Art Musuem, The Frye Art Muesum, 5th Avenue Theater, ACT Theater, The Symphony, The Paramount, Seattle Theater Group and many more.
The best of Seattle’s bars and coffee houses are also here including iconic coffee shops such as Stumptown, Café Vita, Kaladi, Victrola, Café Ladro, The Oddfellows Café and Bauhaus Books and Coffee. For famous spirits you can walk to Oola Distillery for a tour of the facility or enjoy finely crafted cocktail from bars such as Canon, Tavern Law, Liberty, Artusi and Sun Liquor.
If social dancing is your thing, The Tin Table and Century Ballroom are a five-minute walk away, where you can eat an excellent meal with a fantastic cocktail or glass of champagne and dance the night away any night of the week featuring classes and social dances in West Coast Swing, Salsa and Tango.
The location is an ideal home base for exploring the city: Bus Stop ½ block away, a 15 minute walk to downtown and the Pike Street Market and easy to hail a cab off of Pike or Pine Street to downtown as well.
This small apartment is suitable for a single traveler or a couple. It is too small for traveling friends.
We ask you to be respectful of the space and quiet between 10pm and 9am. No parties, extra people, smoking, pets or children.
Kitchen must be cleaned when leaving.
Excellent room for my wife and I to sleep, shower and prepare breakfast in. Speaking of breakfast, Marks' eggs were delicious!
Even though the apartment is attached to KT and Kirby's home, there is still plenty of privacy.
Location was very central with great restaurants and shops nearby. It was also easy for us to park our rental car in the designated spot.
We were a bit nervous about sleeping on a sofa bed, but it was very comfortable as described. Would love to stay here again.
What a lovely place this is! A little haven in the city. We had a great time staying at the apartment. It was full of character and had excellent facilities (the soaking tub is fantastic! The bed is also very comfortable...). Kt was very helpful too. It's also in a great location for transport to Downtown or any other part of the city. We would recommend staying here to anyone heading on a trip to Seattle.
This place is awesome! My boyfriend and I stayed here for 3 days. In that time, KT was a great host & provided all basic essentials. She even checked in with me during the stay to see if we needed more towels, so that was nice. The place was very clean and had a lovely smell resonating throughout the unit which made us feel right at home. Unfortunately, the bed was a tad uncomfortable for my liking, but that wasn't a big deal. Soaking tub and location were also a plus.
Kt was a wonderful host. Everything was in order when we arrived, and there were even chocolates waiting for us!
The soaking tub was amazing, especially after walking all over the city. This airbnb gave us the luxury of a hotel coupled with the convince of home.
The neighborhood was nice, and everything was in walking distance.
Although a medical emergency prevented my girlfriend and I from staying at Kt's Garden Apartment, I was pleased with the pre-stay experience she provided.
About a month before our scheduled stay, Kt sent a thoughtfully composed and impressively thorough message that provided all of the information concerning our visit that we would expect to need. She and her husband seem like notably gracious hosts.
We were disappointed that our change of plans prevented us from staying here. When we do visit Seattle, we would eagerly stay here.
We really enjoyed our stay in this cozy space located in a really great neighborhood.
This was my first Airbnb and WOW. This stay was so incredibly awesome I could barely believe that I paid less than most hotels have cost me in the past.
First off, I would say that the best word to describe Kt's Airbnb is FUNCTIONALITY. Literally everything you could possibly need on your stay is here and placed so perfectly. I think I counted at least 30 outlets in the front room which was neat. There was a sleep kit, white noise machine (YES!), sugar for the coffee, free coffee. I took notice of how everything was situated in this unit to be exactly where it ought to be for easy use. It's a small space but designed so well that it doesn't feel crowded with plenty of room to put your things. The wall ledge that goes around the whole perimeter of the front room was just so great, literally gave the room so much more space to place our things without getting in the way.
The location was absolutely perfect. We loved how close we were to EVERYTHING. Buses were easy to use and walks to the bus stops were less than 5 minutes and the walk to pike place was maybe 20 minutes. It is quiet here too, peaceful sleep the whole night though. and the bed IS comfy. very comfy. And large enough I'm 6'2" and was very comfortable.
Okay, the soaking tub? Forget about it, best thing about the unit by far. AMAZING.
Also, I informed Kt of our dietary restrictions and was so happy to find vegan peanut butter cups left for us. YUM.
We were blown away by this whole experience, we really didn't want to leave.
DO NOT pass up the opportunity to stay here, just book it, now. GO
My husband, Kirby and I live in Seattle WA and have been active in the Capitol Hill arts/food/cocktail revolution for the last 20 years. I am a nationally respected director/choreographer and run an art + event space here called 10 degrees. Kirby is the owner/master distiller of a craft distillery called Oola Distillery. We have both traveled the world for our work and know first hand how a unique, comfortable and private space can make or break a journey to a new place.
Kirby and I are into contemporary visual and performance art, fine food, cocktails, wine and architecture / building.
We are consummate hosts that value attention to detail, a clean and uncluttered atmosphere, privacy and an insiders "road map" to the heart of a city that can only be accessed by those who know it well.
We have a love for personal craftsmanship and architecture and look for accommodations that are unique to each city that we travel to - (we are not fans of ye old Hampton Inn!). We like to stay in places that are well appointed and satisfyingly comfortable but also feel like a "find" - a place that has its own distinctive character.
Our favorite cities aside from Seattle are Amsterdam, San Francisco, NYC (where we had an apartment for 15 years), Brussels, Paris and San Diego. We also love rural areas such as the San Juan's and Eastern Washington (Waitsburg).
