Seattle's most desirable neighborhood, direct train from airport for $3, free parking, comfortable 2 BR+2 Bath, with full kitchen. Close to everything - parks, entertainment, restaurants, nightlife, museums -- all in walking distance. The Walk Score value is 96, which makes it a "Walker's paradise."
The apartment is on the upper floor of a duplex building. Bedroom 1 is a spacious (240 square feet; 22 square meters) quiet bedroom with private bath. It is in the back of the house, away from street noise. It has a TV (but no cable TV), VCR, stereo, and broadband Wi-Fi. The King-size bed is 76 inches wide (a regular double bed is only 54"), so it is suitable for two adults with a child, for example. There is room under the bed to store suitcases. The bedroom has a walk-in closet with lots of storage options and clothes hangers. The en-suite bathroom has a toilet, sink, and bathtub with shower.
Bedroom 2 is a 100 SF small bedroom with a single bed and a trundle bed (pulls out from under the single bed). So the two beds are not at the same height. This works great for a parent and child, for example, but not so much for a couple. This bedroom is comfortable for one person, and can feel crowded for two adults.
The living room has a 2-person sofa bed. It's quite comfortable for two children or one adult and a child. Two adults will find it quite narrow.
Floor mattresses can be added to accommodate additional persons. I do not recommend them, as they take away floor space and will make the place feel more crowded. However, I make them available in case a larger family or group would like to stay together, and don't mind compromised comfort.
There is a second bathroom with toilet, shower, and sink.
The kitchen is fully equipped with microwave, stove/oven, fridge, coffee maker, dishwasher, espresso maker, toaster, pots and pans, utensils, coffee, tea.
The apartment is on the second floor, accessed by an outside staircase, 22 steps up. There are outdoor patios around the house, which are nice places to hang out in the summer, or for a smoke/drink. There is a shared washer/dryer in the basement. Please indicate during your booking if you need parking. The parking space will work fine for a sedan, minivan, or SUV, but it is not large enough for oversized trucks or vans.
You will enter the unit by using a code - no key is needed.
Check-in: 3 pm
Check-out: 11 am
You may store your luggage before/after check-out in the basement storage room. Access to the storage room is by the same access code as to your unit.
Capitol Hill is centrally located, with everything a central city has to offer, including an incredible variety of restaurants, night life, shopping, supermarkets, liquor and pot stores. Volunteer Park with the Seattle Asian Art Museum is 2 blocks away. Behind the park is Lakeview Cemetery, where the city's founders are buried, as well as Bruce Lee and his son. Capitol Hill nightlife in the Pine/Pike corridor is about a 10-minute walk. There are six supermarkets within walking distance. The nearest and largest one is a 4-minute walk away, and is open 24-hours a day, all year.
To get to the apartment from the airport, take the Link Light Rail (subway) to the Capitol Hill Station (13 stops, $3 for adults). Take the Broadway E/E John St exit. Then walk 2 blocks east on E John St, and 4 blocks north on 11th Ave E (7 minutes). Capitol Hill is a walker's paradise, with everything nearby. You can take the subway downtown and the Pike Place Market (one stop) or the University of Washington (one stop in the other direction). Bus stops are nearby, including the number 8 to the Space Needle. You can also take the streetcar or subway to the stadiums or Pioneer Square (old town).+ More
