If you're looking for a comfortable apartment right in the middle of Seattle, St. John's is a great choice. We're in a very central location and the building is loaded with character. We've kept the original 1910 woodwork and hardwood floors and decorated with good taste and comfort in mind. This apartment is a one bedroom with a large living room with queen sized sleeper. The sleeper is one of those new types that is all foam, quite comfortable even for adults, and it makes a queen sized bed. The bedroom has a queen bed. Both the living room and the bedroom have LCD TV's with DVD players. The living room also has a writing desk and a couple of very comfortable stuffed chairs. The bath has a five foot shower. The kitchen is stocked with all the essentials and includes a full sized gas range.
This is a great location to walk to all of Seattle's sights. And it's a great place to be when you want to come home and relax. A fun neighborhood. Come stay with us! You'll love it
Do you like browsing bookstores?: Seattle's oldest and most loved bookstore, Elliot Bay Books, is located about two and one half blocks from us! It's a wonderful bookstore with a great and large selection of books on any subject. Located right next to Elliot Bay is Everyday Music, offering one of Seattle's largest inventory of cd's and dvd's.
St. John's is owned by Oda Egeland and Mark Chambers. We've been married for 18 years and have owned St. John's for the last 7 and had short terms apartments since December of 2005. It's been a great experience for us. We love it! We completely went through the building during the first three years of ownership, updating everything. The short term apartments are our homes away from home and we stay in them regularly when they are available. We keep trying to improve them and make them more like a home, super comfy and with all the conveniences you could possible want.
St. John's is in the middle of Seattle, on Pike Street, right next to a large grocery store and surrounded by interesting shops and restaurants. It's in the middle of the most happening of all neighborhoods! There are three restaurants in the building, two more on our block, and dozens in the surrounding blocks. Plus there are lots of small stores and shops, lots of fun stuff. Two blocks away, for book lovers, is Seattle's oldest and best bookstore, Elliott Bay Books. It's a must see--a wonderful old building with a tremendous selection. And if you're into music, right next door to Elliot Bay Books is EveryDay Music, which is a huge music and video store. Got kids? Right across the street is Cal Anderson Park, jammed full of playing fields, sport courts and play areas with swings and such for the young ones. All in all ours is a great location!
