Built in the mid-century for the 1960 World's Fair, this apartment provides an authentic Seattle experience at an affordable price!
This is private apartment. You will have the entire space to yourself and your guest(s).
There is a full kitchen, full bath, and laundry facilities available on-site (detergent provided). There is a comfortable queen size mattress fitted for two people. The apartment is probably better suited for only two people, but there is a couch in the living room should another person choose to stay. I do not charge for additional guests.
I provide towels and clean sheets.There is a kitchen stocked with dishes and pans for any guests that wish to cook during their stay. Basic cooking oils and condiments are available. A small selection of tea and coffee is also provided for guest use, free of charge.
There is also a television with a Roku box that has Netflix, Pandora and a variety of other streaming channels.
Interaction with Guests
Check-in and check-out is done through a lock-box, instructions are privately messaged 48-72 hours before check in. There is someone that lives on the property to attend to guest needs, so there will be someone available for questions or concerns you may have during your stay.
*EARLY CHECK-IN REQUEST: Early check-ins are difficult to arrange as we use a cleaning services. I can only request an early cleaning. We do have a storage unit on site and I can notify guests when the cleaners have finished, but I am unable to confirm an early check-in.
The apartment is located at the end of Seattle's vibrant Capitol Hill, which makes it at 5-10min walk to Broadway (Capitol Hill's main street) and a 5-10min walk to Downtown. We are located walking distance to the Convention Center and is an ideal place for anyone attending a conference.
Supermarkets, restaurants, gyms, yoga studios, coffee shops and lounges are all located nearby. Capitol Hill is known as one of the more interesting neighborhoods of Seattle and has plenty of character! You're sure to find something interesting just walking around the block.
We are located within walking distance to all major bus lines, including the Convention Center Tunnel Station, which takes you anywhere inside and outside of Seattle. Pike Place Market is about a 10min walk downtown and I have tour maps and traveler guides available to help you enjoy your visit!

Parking is a bit tricky because I live in a very dense area of the city. There is free two-hour parking around the area that go between 7am-6pm (unrestricted after 6pm), and it can be easy or difficult depending on what day and time you arrive. Much of the parking can be found on Melrose, past Olive Way until Denny Street. I've also been told there is parking north of Thomas street. Parking enforcement does patrol the area so I would recommend moving the car every two hours during the restricted timeframe. Otherwise, there are pay parking sites nearby, that charge a daily rate of about $13. On Sundays, parking is free throughout Seattle.
Other Things to Note
NOTE ABOUT 3 GUEST STAYS
There are two sleeping areas in the apartment: 1 queen sized mattress, and a comfortable pull out sofa that is the equivalent to a full size mattress. I've been told in the past by other guests that it is a bit cramped for 3 people. Other guests found the space to be enough. The square footage is 440, so please take that into consideration if booking for 3 people. I do not charge for an extra guest.
There is no elevator in the building and this unit is located on the 3rd floor. Guests with disabilities or trouble climbing stairs should take this into consideration.
There are not any pets inside the room, nor have there been any pets since the place opened, but some other tenants in the building do have cats. The animals are typically confined to their own units, but it is something to note.
This location is fitted for travelers who are a laid back and would like to experience what it is like to actually live in Seattle. If that sounds like you, please do not hesitate to book!
Prices reflect a 9.5% sales tax for WA state. In the event where a refund is issued, both AirBnB charges and 9.5% sales tax will NOT be included in the refund.
We have just hired professional cleaners to turn our units and are here to address the concerns we've heard from past guests. The cleaning fee goes entirely to the service to ensure guests have a clean room ready for them when they arrive. And always, please let us know how we're doing!
Please take off shoes upon entering. While we encourage the use of kitchen and dining area for guests, we discourage large social gatherings or activities involving a lot of noise. Leave the hair catcher in the tub. It prevents the pipes from being clogged.
Please note that the cleaning fee only covers costs of washing linens and general cleaning supplies. Guests are still expected to wash the used dishes and leave the apartment in clean condition.
Please respect the other community members and common areas of the property. Do not hesitate to call manager should any concerns arise and please enjoy your stay!
Nick's apartment was a great place for a short stay in Seattle. It is perfectly located in Capitol Hill and makes a great base from which to explore the city.
The only real draw back is that if you need two beds, the pull-out couch can be a bit uncomfortable. The bed in the bedroom was perfectly comfortable, though.
Nicole's space (I never dealt with Nick during my stay) was great way to begin my first visit to Seattle. Location was right off the freeway entrance making it was to reach her space. My first impression of the area was the parking. Parking was very tricky around the location. Everything is metered and very compact. Make sure you come as a pro at parallel parking. Upon entering, I then noticed all the posters on the wall which was very motivational. It's always a good reminder that we can always become better than we were yesterday. Amenities were very limited; A TV with access to Netflix for entertainment, an empty fridge, comfortable bed, and a shower with less than spectacular shampoo & conditioner and body wash. Her instructions can feel very micromanaging but rules are rules.
But nevertheless, I was here specifically for the location. Capitol Hill is the center of the lively part of the city and I wanted to be apart of it. 24 hour fitness was a few blocks away, as well as all of the food and bars in the area. Capitol Hill has some of the best foodie joints and coffee IMO. But that's for all of you to find for yourselves ;)
All-in-all I had a positive experience. Would I come back? Well, that's for me to decide another day.
Clear and thorough directions. Easy stay. Everything was as pictured. Good location, close to downtown and walkable to Pike Place. Would stay here again!
Nick did a great job of insuring I knew how to find the apt and how to get in. The listing is accurate in terms of looks and what it provides. It's a pretty bare minimum unit, but great for those who are not looking for much during their stay. If you're focused on being out and about then this place will do the trick.
The location is PRIME in terms of getting around all over mayor parts of Seattle primarily by foot. Could not have picked a better location for that. If you visit here, be sure to walk around the neighborhood you're in, as there are some amazing small restaurants, bars, coffee houses.
The place is a lot older than you may think as it's in a pretty classic Seattle neighborhood. The place overall could use a few touch ups in the bathroom/shower to really make it "cozy".
Thanks Nick for a great stay!
The apartment was super cozy, and getting access to the room went without the a hitch. There was consistent communication from the time that I booked the place, and up until I got there which was extremely reassuring. The place is in such a great spot of Seattle, access to so many places (bars, food, and downtown). It was quiet in the evening, which was also really nice. I would definitely stay with Nick again should I ever find myself in Seattle.
Really kind and concerned host, he was always keeping an eye on the process. Everything was perfectly fine.
The apartment was a little old, but the location is great. The heating system is old too. There are one bad and one sofa bed. But because the sofa bed is broken, 3 of us had to squeeze in one bed. Also, the beaker tripped for several times. But the Host is really nice. She answered any question I had even if it's late night. She also gave us very detailed direction to get the apartment.

As an avid traveler, I have always felt the people along the way have been just as important as the place I visited. I traveled alone in Latin America for about two years, and spent a good part of that time working in multiple hostels. I always enjoyed learning about my guests, providing good accommodations, and showing them the best parts of a city.
The apartments are located in a 36-unit apartment in the heart of Seattle, and I have completely furnished an apartment for the purpose of providing affordable housing for visitors. Right now, I'm currently out of town, but my friend and business associate Nicole is handling all reservations and has proven to be responsive and responsible for all guests who have stayed thus far.
We provide simple but comfortable accommodations, and realize that this location is suited best depending on your travel plans and the type of things you are looking for during your stay. It does help, however, to be as detailed as you can in your request so we can best meet your needs. We try our very best to provide a pleasant stay, so please rest assured that we will do the most we can to resolve any issues during your stay. I hope we get the chance to show you the best parts of Seattle!
