About William

I'm William, I've enjoyed living in Seattle's Capitol Hill for over 20 years and know the neighborhood inside and out. I have renovated each apartment in the Turret House to create 3 unique and comfortable urban retreats. I love to travel and I speak both English and French.

William purchased this apartment in 2006

Why William chose Central District

Seattle’s most vibrant neighborhood, full of gorgeous original homes, historic architecture, beautiful parks, all set on the hillside providing stunning views of the city skyline, water and mountains. Vibrant and eclectic shopping districts with wonderful restaurants, cafes, bars and nightclubs. A rare urban oasis that is quiet and peaceful yet super convenient to all the city attractions!

What makes this apartment unique

Apartments are charming, spacious and unique, set on a large corner lot with mature trees and flower gardens, making for a peaceful retreat in the heart of the city. . . a great base for exploring the best of Seattle and the Pacific Northwest!

The perfect place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Coming in at night to a home instead of a hotel makes such a difference!! The Turret House is in a lovely, quiet residential neighborhood. The apartment was clean and comfortable and cozy and had everything we needed to feel right at home; the space was just right for 2 couples. The experience was worth so much more than what we payed! (I walked to my appointments at Swedish Medical Center. Anyone in Seattle for medical reasons, please don't stay anywhere else!)

Great place to stay in Capitol Hill!

  • 5 of 5

My colleagues and I needed a place to stay and found the Turret House. It was the perfect place for us because our meetings were in the Capitol Hill area and we were able to walk to meetings and to great eateries, the Coop and other local attractions. The house was very comfortable and cozy. We enjoyed having coffee and breakfast there in the morning and walking around the neighborhoods. I highly recommend this place if you are visiting Seattle. Just a short cab ride to downtown or a 20 minute walk. Charming!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

I had the opportunity to stay in apartments 3 and 5 on consecutive weekends and both times the stay was perfect. I hate to admit it, but I am almost never satisfied when I stay somewhere, usually because of cleanliness. The Turret House is by far the cleanest, prettiest, most comfortable place I have ever stayed--I can't recommend it enough. I agree wholeheartedly with the other positive reviews, but wanted to emphasize the clean and comfortable atmosphere as that is the most important factor for me when traveling. Looking forward to my next visit.

Absolutely Superb !!!!

  • 5 of 5

The perfect location for a holiday in Seattle. Booking on-line was straightforward. The apartment is delightful and well appointed spacious, comfortable and clean. The location is quite quiet, secure and relatively dark at night time. The beds and bedding are comfortable, we all slept extremely well. There are two large mini-supermarkets within easy walking distance. We loved the owners choice of decor, the furniture in the apartment had obviously been chosen with great taste. During our stay nothing was lacking as everything we could possibly want was there We highly recommend this apartment and we very much hope to return again someday..

Eclectic Area and a Good Value, but Also a True Urban Neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

This is a nicely furnished and provisioned apartment with a great little balcony on which we enjoyed afternoon wine and morning coffee. But you must also be prepared for urban noises here, too, including large jet planes overhead, emergency vehicle sirens, neighbors with loud music on the weekends, and the occasional loud car or truck passing by out front. Also, we had upstairs renters who were very heavy-footed with children who scampered back and forth in the evenings until about 10:00 p.m. for their bedtime. But if you can deal with those sorts of issues as well as a passing parade of some rooming house tenants diagonally across the street, this is a well-appointed, well cared for, comfortable unit and is very convenient to great coffee shops, micro-breweries, grocery stores (Trader Joes and a great local food co-op), cafes, restaurants, bakeries...and even a local distillery. Great area to explore and, walkable distance to the waterfront, or connected by bus transportation if you aren't much of a walker.

First time VRBO user delighted!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two adult children, and I stayed here the three nights before our daughter's wedding. It was the perfect location for us. We loved the walkability in a beautiful and safe neighborhood and the proximity to Trader Joe's and our daughter's apt. The apt. #4, (middle level) was beautiful, spacious and very clean. We found everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. Loved the porch for morning coffee. Appreciated the tasteful furnishings and decor. The extra $10.00 per night for parking was well worth it for the convenience. Never met the owner, but he was very available and helpful by phone in the months and days before our stay. We would definitely stay here again!
