The space

This is a detached, completely private apartment. It has a full private bathroom with shower and tub, a private keyless entrance, and a kitchenette with a small refrigerator.

Check-in is easy, because the door is secured with an entrance code that is not reused. No keys to get or return! We send you your code and you can enter at any time day or night without arranging a time for us to give you keys.

This is a 100% private, detached unit.

Parking and Driving:
There is free parking available on 30th Avenue or on Dewey behind the unit.

520 is about 5 minutes away, giving you very quick access to either I5 or the East Side.

There is a ZipCar at 24th and Madison. There are usually Car2Go cars on Madison near by.

The bus stop is at E Madison St & 28th Ave E, less than a five minute walk away. Downtown is about ten minutes on the 11 bus. The 8 bus provides quick access to Seattle Center, Capitol Hill, Rainier Valley, and the Mount Baker Link station.

Free internet of course. We *don't* currently have a TV in the unit.

Fine Dining:
Madison Valley has some of Seattle's best dining. Our favorite reastaurants within a five minute walk are: Luc, Voila, La Cote, and Belle Epicurean (all French), The Harvest Vine (Basque), Cafe Flora (vegetarian), and Jae's (Asian bistro).

Fast Food:
Pagliacci Pizza is located one block North East on Lake Washington Blvd and Madison. There is also a Pizza Hut (carryout or delivery only) and a Terriaki place on Madison and 28th.

For groceries Trader Joe's (Madison and 17th) and Safeway (Madison and 22nd) are within walking distance, but be aware they are uphill!

Convenience Store:
Madison Valley Market (Madison and 29th) is less than five minutes away and has lots of groceries, snacks, beer and wine.

The Essential Baking Company (Madison and 29th) is a great place to grab a cup of coffee and a snack, or a full meal. Belle Epicurean is also a good place for a quick cup of coffee.

This is an Ikea Hemnes king-sized bed with mattress and boxsprings.

You get a full private bathroom with a soaker tub, shower, and plenty of towels.

You have a half-sized refridgerator with freezer in the unit that you can use. There is also a kitchen sink, a microwave and a small (two person) coffeemaker. We also provide a tea kettle, a hot-plate and a small sauce pan. (Although we don't recommend this kitchen for lots of cooking as there is no kitchen exhaust fan.)

This is one of Seattle's safest neighborhoods. Since you're in our backyard, we're around in case you need any assistance.

Health & Fitness:
Lila Yoga (29th and Madison) is a fantastic yoga studio. Kate's Day Spa (2713 E. Madison Street) is an excellent place to relax, and is open on weekends. Seattle Shambhala Center is a Buddhist Temple and is located two blocks down. It has an Open House (good for beginners) every Thursday evening.

The best thing about this neighborhood is the Arboretum. You're less than five minutes away -- just cross Madison. Arboretum highlights include hiking, canoeing and kayaking, picnics, a full soccer court, and enjoying the year-round collection of magnificent flowers, plants and trees. The Arboretum also houses the Seattle Japanese Garden, open from February to November, a 3 1/2 acre formal garden. It features a lake with koi and turtles, community room rentals, tea ceremonies and special events all year round. At the north end of the park is Foster Island, which is an amazing and peaceful place to visit, with pedestrian trails that connect the island to the mainland.

Madison Park:
Madison Park is within walking distance, although a longer walk than some may want to take. In the summer this park becomes Seattle's access to swim in Lake Washington.

Easy check-in process, quick street parking, very cute space, and a very pretty back yard that was perfect for our puppy.

There was a miscommunication about the place being cleaned before our arrival but it was resolved within a few hours and he quickly responded to our messages about it. The bed was super comfortable and the off street parking is nice.

This studio is thoughtfully furnished and decorated. The towels feel luxe, and the mattress is so comfortable ( my husband and I are usually mattress snobs and can't wait to sleep in our own bed, but this mattress was comparably comfortable). There's a ton of thoughtful touches: …

Place was great! Just enough for two on a getaway. Very close to great restaurants. Also, not at all far from Seattle Downtown. Great place to stay, highly recommend. J, was very helpful and accommodating.

Very nice, peaceful surroundings and easy in and out private parking area. WiFi connections included but no radio or TV available. Many great books to peruse on local information and NW surroundings as well as other varied reading material.

Nice clean place with some excellent literature located throughout the room. Quiet location with decent nearby food options and just a short uber ride to wherever you want to be.
