Beautiful, spacious, top floor premium apartment in Capitol Hill (Cap Hill) with a penthouse view, right off Broadway and John Street. Includes private bathroom and parking. NOTE: This listing is for a private room and not the entire apartment.
Modern, serene, airy, and light filled, the apartment has handsome Brazilian hardwood floors and deep burgundy walls house artwork from my travels through Europe. Fully stocked kitchen for your use. Washer/Dryer for use as well.
The crown jewel of this unit is the panoramic view of Seattle, not only from the balcony but from the living room as well. Very rare combination of sky scrapers, Space Needle, water (Puget Sound), and the Olympic mountains, all in one view. You can sit on the balcony and watch seaplanes fly past the Space Needle and land on Lake Union. Facing west, you will witness amazing cloud formations and epic sunsets. Pictures do not serve it justice, it is awe inspiring, and you feel literally "in the city".
The private bedroom has a high level of privacy with a private in-unit bathroom -- fresh sheets and towels are provided. Very comfortable Queen Bed. Bedroom and bathroom are kept very clean. The entrance to the bedroom is next to the front door so you can come and go as you wish. Just to top it off --parking included too (parking is tough on Cap Hill).
For music lovers, there is a high end audiophile stereo system (Martin Logan electrostatics for the audio nerds) -- it is like listening to awesome headphones, but without the headphones. iPhones and Macbooks can stream to the stereo system. Wi-Fi is included.
The host is an experienced Airbnber, having used it exclusively for a 3 week trip to Europe. Your flatmate is an affable, fun, personable, technology professional. I am a respectful and thoughtful person, and will expect the same from any potential guest. On weekdays, this place will feel like it is truly yours since I will be gone most of the day. This unit is truly a special space and you will have the quintessential Seattle experience on Cap Hill.
Check in procedures: I live in this unit and have a day job, so on weekdays, I prefer to have check-in at 6:00pm or later. On weekends I am much more flexible on check in time. For people that arrive early, I know a department store downtown that will store your bags for free. Check out time will depend on the next guest but usually around 5pm works.
Complete access to the kitchen, living area, and balcony. The guest room is completely private with own bathroom.
As a long time Seattle resident I try to provide Guests with a locals perspective. I try to accommodate all Guests, and will provide them with as much privacy as they need. I have also taken Guests to concerts, dinner, and drinks.
Central location, 10 minute walk to downtown, and footsteps away from the amenities of vibrant Cap Hill. A wealth of coffee shops, restaurants, bars, cocktail lounges, grocery, pharmacy are within a 5 minute walk (close to Broadway and Pike/Pine corridor). As you may know Cap Hill is the
foodie / drink / coffee / music / nightlife mecca of Seattle and is very walkable. 20 minute walk to Pike Place Market and downtown shopping district. 25 minute walk to Space Needle. Short bus ride to both and to other locations of interest in Seattle (such as University District, Queen Anne, Fremont and Ballard).
Cap Hill is very easy to walk around, and the walk to downtown is 10 minutes. There is a bus stop two blocks away that will take you to the Space Needle and Seattle Center in 10 minutes, and to downtown in 5 minutes.
Nam is a gracious host, opening his home fully to his guests and sharing in their joy at the AMAZING view—even dimming the lights to get the full experience of Seattle by night. That was one of the high points of my stay. The accommodations were clean, comfortable, nicely decorated, and private. I felt totally at ease there. Nam offered suggestions for places to eat and drink, and I took advantage of one of them and enjoyed it tremendously. The location is an easy walk to downtown—or a short cab ride. Also accessible by bus. I walked four out of six times (the unusually good weather was a factor in that decision). I would recommend this to anyone, especially to someone visiting Seattle for the first time who would love the stunning view.
Nam was a very good host and his place is just awesome. Very well located, his apt is a great stay in Seattle
My first time using Airbnb, which is AWESOME!
Nam was a very kind host, the apartment is perfect, with a great location and a breathtaking view. Surrounded by many great restaurants and cafes and close to everywhere in Seattle. Our plan changed since we were going to Bellevue for Chinese food, Nam also provides a parking spot.
A perfect experience. Really enjoyed the stay. Would like to stay here when I visit Seattle again.
Nam was a fantastic host! I needed a place to stay very last minute and he was amazing! It could not have been better!
My first Airbnb experience: Just wow!
Very welcoming host plus an excellent location with a breathtaking view: Great experience! I will definitely come back if I get a chance and can recommend Nam's offer to anyone seeking a special place in Seattle.
unbeatable view！ nice location and super handsome owner！
Nam is a great host with a really fantastic place in Capitol Hill. It is central to everything, and the view is as spectacular as everyone says.
The room is really perfect. A queen sized bed, with it's own bath, and separate enough to allow for everyone to feel like they have the space they need. The location is one of the best in Seattle for amenities nearby, and for exploring the city.
Really a top-notch experience.
View was even more amazing than expected! Very kind and generous! Very accommodating ! I would stay again for sure
It was a really great experience for us! We stayed there for three nights. As other reviewers said, the view was breath-taking, and the room/bathroom/closet were clean.
The place was quite convenient. It was close to I5 highway, pike market place, downtown, shopping streets, etc. By the way, there is a small coffee shop nearby that we really enjoyed: "Espresso Vivace Sidewalk Bar".
One word of caution is that parking is hard to find. It shouldn't be a problem if you have only one car, as Nam offers one parking space at the garage.
Nam was a great, accommodating host. I've enjoyed my stay.
