About Angela Medina

I have lived in Seattle most of my life with a 4 year stint in Mexico which had the most positive impact on my life besides my 3 month tour of Europe. It opened up my world in ways no other medium can. I have seen many many changes to my city, most for the good and even though I complain about the gray, damp, cold, windy, rainy, dark months between November and May, there is so much natural beauty all around us from the Cascades, Mt. Rainier, Olympic mountains and the national parks they reside in that I constantly have to remind myself would not exist without the aforementioned weather pattern that ALL OF US like to complain about! If you've never been to the San Juans, make the trip, you won't regret it! Then there's the city life with all of the farmer's markets, music scene, amazing restaurants, parks, trails and beaches within minutes from here. I also love the diversity of people, language, culture and the fact that Seattle ranks #2 for most literate city in the United States!

Angela Medina purchased this apartment in 2000

Why Angela Medina chose Capitol Hill

In 2000 I sold my downtown salon and bought this building in order to build a one chair salon that I work in Sunday-Tuesday and rent out to another hairdresser Wednesday-Saturday. I live in one unit and have another 3-BD unit that I also rent furnished short term. Although this unit has been rented short term for 11 years, I've had 4 guests extend their stays for up to 2 years each! If you need 6 bedrooms you can rent both units.

What makes this apartment unique

One of the things I love about this property is it's proximity to everything. We are minutes away from I-5, 520, I-90 and downtown, yet we are surrounded by lush landscaping that is maintained year round and can enjoy beautiful sunsets beyond Lake Union, Downtown and Olympic mountain views.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Angela-I would like to take a minute before we leave to thank you for letting us share this wonderful place. It's everything we expected......and much more!! Our son has been in Seattle for 5 years but is leaving in December. I'm just sad we didn't know about your place before. But if we ever come back to Seattle (and I sure hope so), we'll be sure to contact you again. Thank you so much. You have a wonderful place in a beautiful city!

Stay in Seattle!

  • 5 of 5

What can I say........absolutely fantastic place to stay! Incredible views of Lake Union, the surrounding mountains, downtown Seattle......this joint as it all! Also very comfortable and enjoyable place just to hang out, relax, and enjoy all that the great city of Seattle has to offer. I started out with a 5 month lease, and ended up extending for the rest of the year. Was sad to go, but will come back without a doubt should my future schedule all for it. Also the landlord was wonderful as well, very friendly and helpful.

Owner's Response: Hey buddy-it was great having you as a neighbor this past year-who knew?! Thanks for being SO low-maintenance, easy-going and NEAT. I took advantage of the vacancy and am having the whole apartment painted, carpet removed, hardwood floors installed and will have you over for dinner to see what you think. I would love to have you back anytime! Good luck with your business venture and stay in touch!

Pre-holiday getaway

  • 5 of 5

The view of Lake Union, Queen Anne hill, and the Space Needle was fabulous. The apartment is comfortable and conveniently located whether you have a car or plan to travel by bus and taxi. The kitchen had everything we needed to enjoy a glass of wine and snack or to prepare a meal, and we REALLY appreciated the coffee and French press! Street parking was never an issue - we could always find something within a block of the unit and usually right in front of it. There are a number of buses to choose from to get you downtown, and if you are a walker, there is a lot within 2 miles of the location (and up a few hills :-).

The I-5 traffic is smooth and steady enough it served as white noise. Footsteps and activity in the apartment above, which I believe is also a VRBO and was not occupied the entire time we were there, are noticeable. Our biggest challenges were the steps to get up to the unit - they are brick and numerous, but there are railings on both sides - and finding a good place to curb our small dog. There is a park just under a half mile away, and there is an off-leash dog exercising area about the same distance away under I-5, but there are few grassy areas closer for a quick jaunt.

This stated, I would return and stay in this unit if it's available when I return to Seattle. It was romantic and warm, and Angela was friendly and helpful!

Lovely condo in a beautiful city

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place! It was everything we hoped for and more. The listing photos were very accurate. The place was clean and well-maintained, and the owner answered our questions promptly. There was always available parking when we needed it. We would recommend this place anytime and hope we can go back ourselves one day.

Wonderful place---better than the photos!

  • 5 of 5

This place was the perfect place to stay. I was in Seattle to visit with a friend and we ended up hanging out in the apartment a lot enjoying the views. Lots of extras in the kitchen pantry were nice. Lots of candles and a burn log for the fire place made it very homey. Angela was wonderful and very open and communicative. If I come back to Seattle, I will surely stay hear again.

Beautiful Scenic View of Seattle From The Living Room

  • 5 of 5

Angela was absolutely wonderful to us. She went above and beyond what we expected as she picked us up from the airport when she learned that we wouldn't have a vehicle until the next day. She offered to take us to the car rental the next day and picked up some groceries for us the night we arrived. Angela is very friendly, knowledgeable of the Seattle and surrounding area sites, and willing to help in any way she can. The property is clean, very well maintained and is ideally located. The view is breathtaking especially at night. The bus stop is just a few blocks away and is easy to get to. I'd recommend this property to anyone wanting a fun getaway to Seattle.

Owner's Response: Well, in full disclosure....they did not have smart phones or even texting and I was too stressed out at the thought of them taking public transportation from the airport (which is great btw), and wandering around with their luggage on Capitol Hill which lives up to it's name and is very hilly! So I thought it would be much easier to just pick them up. Luckily I wasn't wearing my salon hat that day. What I have started doing lately is picking guests up at the Westlake Station if they take the Link and then either dropping them off at the car rental or bringing them here. I don't mind picking up some grocery items especially when guests are arriving late. It's sort of nice to at least have some coffee, milk and juice in the fridge(:)

WOW

  • 5 of 5

This is a great property. If you are looking for a beautiful view and comfortable residence, this is for you. Great price for an excellent stay. The property is VERY clean and well maintained. Angela is on site if you need anything - very responsive. Great bed! beautiful artwork everywhere, just a wonderful place to stay. Fully equipped kitchen, lovely garden and patio, lots of room...and the view! It is more beautiful than the pictures can even display. gorgeous sunsets over the water, sit and watch the sea planes land and take off. Even though I-5 is right there, I never noticed freeway noise. It is exceptionally quiet, the building very solid! I wanted a quiet relaxing getaway and I got it and more. you'll love working with Angela, she is wonderful as a person and owner. I'll be back!
