Overview

About the property

studio apartment, 1 bathroom, sleeps 2 guests

The studio has a large living area that is light and airy. There is a view of the Puget Sound and Olympic Mountains. In the front alcove is a queen-sized bed. The studio is great for one couple or a family with one child young enough to sleep in our pack 'n' play, which we can provide upon request. There is a tv with 140+ satellite channels and DVD player, and a desk where you can set up your laptop to take advantage of our high-speed wireless internet.

In the kitchen, you will find a refrigerator, oven/stove, coffee maker, and microwave. The cabinets are filled with all the dishes and equipment you will need to prepare a snack or meal. We stock coffee and some pantry items to get you started.

The bathroom includes all the necessities. It has a shower only, no bathtub.

The studio occupies the second story of a rambling Craftsman-style home. The studio and main floor have separate entries and are completely closed off from one another inside. Your entry is up a flight of stairs in the backyard. Other guests us the main floor and a separate cottage on the property and share the yard space. The yard is a pleasant place to relax with an outdoor table and charcoal grill. Easy on-street parking on 42nd Ave SW (very quiet and almost always possible to find a spot right in front of the house, no permit or payment required).

Although you may feel like you’re worlds away from it all when tucked inside the quiet, peaceful studio, you will actually be just 2-1/2 blocks from the heart of our neighborhood. Walk up the street to the West Seattle Junction to find great restaurants, coffee shops, shopping, a pharmacy, grocery stores, and nightlife.

Our neighborhood, West Seattle is also home to Seattle’s finest waterfront areas: Alki Beach and Lincoln Park. Alki provides summer fun and excellent views of downtown; Lincoln Park is great for a hike in the woods or a dip in the saltwater swimming pool. We recommend riding the Elliot Bay Water Taxi from Seacrest Pier to downtown Seattle.

By car, downtown Seattle is just 10 minutes. Or, another great hassle-free option is to hop on a metro bus and ride just 15-20 minutes.

About Laura and Joe Ross

Having both owned houses before we married in February of 2009, we decided to try the vacation rental business rather than sell either. Our first guests were Laura's family, in town for the wedding. Since then, with Joe's work as an entertainer and our joint project of raising our three kids, we are plenty busy! However, we take pride in putting our visitors first and have really enjoyed meeting our guests and sharing the city we love with them.

Laura and Joe Ross purchased this studio in 1990
