Hi I'm Owen. I work and live in Seattle and am on the road a lot these days.
I have a killer apartment that should not go unused!

We were in town for an event at the convention center, and we couldn't have found a better location than Owen's apartment. It was walking distance from everything we needed, and an easy transit ride from the airport. Owen was very helpful and accommodating, and made our first airbnb experience a breeze. We would definitely rent here again. Thanks Owen!!
Owen's apartment is perfectly situated between Pine and Pike, making it an ideal location if you're looking to check out the culture (bars, restaurants, bookstores, records shops, clothing boutiques, etc, etc, etc,) of Capitol Hill. And you can also stroll along Pike directly to the market and other downtown destinations — an easy 20-minute walk.
Owen's place is a studio apartment with a bed, a couch, a loveseat, and kitchen. It's cozy and has all the essentials you need. Owen has blankets, towels, soap, etc. laid out for us. There's a TV (no cable, though), wifi, and even a little desk if you want to get some work done. That said, if you're looking for a modern apartment to rent, this probably isn't your place — it's outdated, small, and feels a little like a studio apartment you'd rent in college. But a great place to lay your head and get easily out into the city.
Owen himself was remarkably helpful from start to finish. The keys were easy to retrieve; he offered great advice on places to grab a beer and rent a bike, etc.; he was quick to answer questions about the apartment; and while he was available, he also disappeared, letting us feel like the apartment was our own.
I'll definitely give Owen a call again next time I'm in Seattle.
This was our first time using airbnb and we were nervous. But Owen was kind and helpful and very generous, and his Capital Hill apt was beautiful, airy, and incredibly centrally located. We were just a few blocks from downtown and Pike Place Market, and his building was surrounded by awesome restaurants, bars, and coffeeshops (not to mention Elliott Bay Book Company). We had a great stay, and would definitely rent from Owen again.
Response from Owen:
Thanks Elizabeth! Glad you enjoyed the area.
A great easy place right where I needed to be. Thanks Owen!
Owens place was awesome and was in the perfect location. It was within walking distance to downtown and to all fun places for the drinking and dinner. I would book his place anytime.
Owens place was great! Centrally located in Capitol Hill, near great coffee shops and great restaurants. I'd certainly stay again :)
It was a great apartment in a very good location. It was a short walk to downtown and it had a neighborhood feel since it was in Capitol Hill. Best of both worlds. Owen was a great guest who laid out clear instructions on retrieval of keys and amenities, and he also always responded quickly to e-mails.
Oh, and a great view!
I wouldn't ask for any more from this place. It was clean, super comfortable, nicely furnished with great views in an unbeatable location. I recommend it.
Great location and Owen was really helpful with suggestions for paces to eat, where to get great coffee and running routes. Loved Seattle and the experience was so much better being in a cool little place that was easy walking distance to Pike Market, downtown, and all the other touristy spots.
Location. Location. Location. It was SUPER easy to get to the trains, buses and ferries from Owen's place. We easily found Car2Go in the area and they were usually available. It was great to stay in Capitol Hill, since there are no reasonable rate hotels in the area. Close to all the bars/restaurants/shops and walkable to Pike Place Market. Apartment is all you needed: bed, bathroom and a small kitchen. Worked perfectly.
Super easy to work with, responsive and clean! I would recommend Owen to other hosts. Safe travels!
