SERENE GET-AWAY IN THE HEART OF THE CITY

Seattle House Rental Photos and Description

House, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

This charming 'mother-in-law' studio is the perfect get-away! It is cozy and comfortable, and the Murphy bed makes efficient use of the space. The backyard is so peaceful and serene, it's hard to believe you're merely blocks away from 4-star restaurants.

The parking around my place is zoned. There's generally street parking available and you can borrow my zoned parking pass for free, but if you'd like, off-street parking is also available for an extra $5/night.

The studio is in the basement of my 1909 Craftsman bungalow, with its own separate entrance. It's newly renovated. The kitchenette has a small stove top, microwave, refrigerator, pans, dishes, spices, everything you need to do as much or as little cooking as you'd like!

The front of the Murphy bed folds down into a desk, so you can work or write. You will have access to my WiFi network and printer. There's also a TV with basic cable, a DVD player and some DVDs.

Public transportation is readily available. I'm close to the #43, 8, 12, 10 and 11 buses. Great restaurants, coffee shops, and boutiques are also in walking distance.

I have lived and traveled all over the world. Seattle is my home now. I've been here the longest I've ever lived anywhere (5 years.) I love this place, and I love sharing it with other people. I try to eat at a different restaurant every week, so I'm pretty knowledgeable about the local food scene.

For my day job I write computer manuals for a California software company. I telecommute, which means I will be sharing the backyard with you on those beautiful Seattle days!

The Owner purchased this house in 2011

I love Seattle, and I think you will too.

It's such a short walk to everything here. If you like walking, you can easily go to Interlaken, which is a couple of square miles of wilderness in the heart of the city. Or you can walk downtown. The restaurants in the area are fabulous, and many of the specialize in local and organic food.

very cozy and comfortable!

This serene getaway in the heart of the city was very cozy, comfortable, clean and private. I was not at all disappointed and the listing was accurate. The bed and pillows were very comfortable which is important to me. The bathroom was clean and I loved the shower head. Though I did not have the time or opportunity to do any cooking, it was very nice to have that possibility with a private kitchen. Leah provided some great local coffee and tea selections, along with everything you would need to cook a meal. Leah was clear and prompt in her communications. Capitol Hill is a great neighborhood to be in. I would definitely return to this serene get-away!

February visit

I think Leah did a great job of creating a nice basement apartment, everything was accurate about the listing, it was clean and efficient, we stayed for 4 nights, the location was great. Our main comment would be that there is no where to sit and relax in the apartment, nothing to lean against when sitting in the bed, and no lamp by the bed to making reading in bed easy. Rained each day so we couldn't sit outside on the patio, which I'm sure is nice when the weather is better. Even if you're gone most of the time seeing the sights it would be nice to have a place to sit in more comfort. We also found the bed uncomfortable, in general probably a much better place to stay if you're just one person.

Capital Hill Convenience

This was clean efficient studio apartment, well appointed and maintained. The owner was helpful but not hovering. Perfect spot for a few nights while we visited family close by. Very convenient to shops, restaurants, bars, and groceries. Very close (1 block) to buses for downtown Seattle and Seattle Center (Space Needle). Parking permit was a blessing and no added cleaning few an added bonus!

We'll definitely be going back!

Leah was great. The place is clean roomy and just a good place to stay. The backyard is fantastic. This was a special vacation for us and Leah came out to the backyard and took some pictures for us. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone. The bed is comfy, bathroom roomy and a great shower. You are close enough to walk to a grocery store or we walked down to the pikes market. We stayed for two nights before an Alaskan cruise.

High praise goes to the "Serene Get Away in the Heart of the City" vrbo, which is aptly described. Many thanks to the owner, who has put together a fantastic spot that is perfect for one to two people. This is a basement set up that is well appointed - placement of items are well-considered, exellent storage, all kitchen items are there (even a food processor), and who can resist a murphy bed (very comfortable) and lovely smelling soap in the bathroom (yes, we purchased some of it at the Co-Op nearby)!. Perfect location for taking the bus and doubly great too for being able to have access to a Zipcar and even to a myriad of Car-2-gos. Outdoor space in the backyard was lovely as well (sorry we didn't get to grill). We most definitely will want to stay here again the next time we are in Seattle.
