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!

The apartment is cozy and clean. I was attending a conference at the Sheraton and had to be there at 8:30 every morning, and it was just a quick walk. Nice café right around the corner, convenience store, etc. No reason not to stay here.
Owen, thanks so much for having me in your home! It was a great convenient location to get to downtown and still be stepping distance from all the fun restaurants/coffee shops on cap hill! Super cool view of the skyline and removed enough from the noise of the city. Also, Victrola and the Starbucks Roastery were right next door! :-)
Owen's apartment is just what we were hoping for. The location is perfect for exploring the whole of Seattle, and the views are amazing! The apartment itself is nice, comfortable, and well equipped for everything you would need to be able to cook, live and sleep. Would recommend to anyone.
Very satisfied with host and apartment. Everything is the same as on the pictures. Host is very flexible to work for late check-out to accommodate my travel schedule.
Funky vintage apartment building located in the perfect spot for checking out Capital Hill and downtown. Owen was totally on the ball and easy to work with.
Bad news first, good news second. Owen's place is in an older, but nice, building right in the heart of things. When I arrived I had to fiddle with the lockbox in an odd place, and the elevator was one of those clumsy push-the-door open deals from yestercentury. A bottle of wine greeted my arrival, which was quite nice. Unlike most Airbnb "whole apartments" I've stayed in previously, this one is clearly someone's primary residence. The closets have that someone's stuff in them, the fridge has that someone's food. It was a touch shabby, but maybe more "comfortable" would be a better way to put it. Still, the place was adequate for my needs. Great wifi speed too.
The location is where Owen's place is awesome. You wouldn't know it by looking at the map, but this place is smack dab in the middle of a great area. I kept opening Yelp to look for coffee, or lunch, or even dance clubs, and the best options were just a few blocks away. Lots of transit options within a block, though the waterfront and Pike's Place were walkable for me.
All in all, while I was a bit underwhelmed by the apartment itself, I would totally stay here again.
Neat apartment in a great location. Would repeat!
Everything was so fine, especially the location was the best. I was staying there for the Decibel Festival, and most venues were so close that I could walk all the time. Near restaurants and shops were also great experience.
We stayed at Owen's place for 4 nights, and it was great. He was very communicative and flexible with check-in/out times to accommodate our flights. It was our first time in Seattle, and Owen's place is in a convenient location. Within a 10-minute walk in any direction, you can get to Pike Place Market and Capitol Hill restaurants and bars. The convention center and retail core of downtown is only a few blocks away.
Photos are accurate to the apartment. Just one tip: The apartment is on the 6th floor, and the elevator is an old-timey one where you have to open the door and "cage" yourself vs. the doors opening automatically when you push the button. This was fine for us, as we didn't take it all the time (took the stairs), but a heads-up for less agile guests.
The picture of the view from this apartment does not do it justice, it really is spectacular. Owen was great, he accommodated my boyfriend and I last minute after our previous host had cancelled. Two hours after I initially requested to book the apartment, we were comfortably checked in with a bottle of wine waiting for us, which, after the last minute snafu with our other place was much appreciated. The apartment is exactly as pictured and the neighborhood is great, plenty of restaurants, bars and coffee shops within walking distance. We visited some of the national parks outside Seattle and loved coming back to watch the sunset over Seattle from the very comfortable living area. Would definitely stay here again!
Owen was a very good guest and can come back again. We had no problem understanding each other and it was a pleasure to receive him and friends in my apartment.
Owen and his family were a breeze to host. Very communicative and easy going and the house was spotless when we arrived home. We'd be happy to host Owen again anytime!
Super easy to work with, responsive and clean! I would recommend Owen to other hosts. Safe travels!
