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.
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.
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
Loved the cozy room, it was worth every penny! If we stay In Seattle I'd definitely try to get this place again!
It is a truly lovely apartment. We'd stay there again in a second if we find ourselves back in Seattle.
The apartment is really nice and clean. Perfect for a couple or one person. The backyard is beautiful and the chickens were cool. The place is walkable to the aquarium and the market. The bed was very comfortable
This place is perfect for a weekend getaway! The hosts have thought of absolutely everything to make your stay easy and comfortable. We came for a two-night stay to see Seattle and their place was a highlight of an awesome visit. Here's why
The neighborhood: Capitol Hill is easy to get to and central to everything we wanted to do in the city. We walked from the airport shuttle up through the neighborhood. It has a chill, cool vibe with amazing bars and restaurants. It was easy to get cabs too!
The house: truly exceeded my expectations in every way. The bed was super comfortable with hella plush bedding. The kitchen has everything we needed to eat in or cook. There was coffee, cream and fresh eggs from the chickens in the back. There was a noise machine and a sleeping kit which helped me a lot! And then there was the bathtub. That thing is my new definition of heaven on earth. A deep, dark Japanese soaking tub soothed my sore feet. The apartment is beautiful, clean, sleek and lovely. But the tub is why you should fight for this spot or change your plans so you can stay here.
I cannot recommend this place more. The host, Kt, was super helpful and kind. You will be so happy you stayed here.
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).
