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

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!

6 High School Friends Met in Seattle

  • 5 of 5

6 High School Girl Friends took over the entire house for four days for a fabulous reunion adventure. We all enjoyed the location, cleanliness, comfort, and serenity of the Seattle Turret House. A real gem. William, the owner and Shawn, the housekeeper were terrific in handling any issues we had and in giving great advice for wonderful restaurants in the area. We would all come back to Seattle and stay here again. Thanks for a memorable trip...

Gorgeous home in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Five of us stayed at this rental for four nights and we all absolutely loved it. My four friends had to work remotely and they found the living room to be a perfect office with its big table, couch and natural lighting. We loved that we could walk to Trader Joe's and Central Co-Op for groceries, and it was so easy to walk to all of the bars and restaurants on Pike and Pine. The kitchen is well-stocked and great for cooking - literally the only downside the entire time was that the stove's lighter has a problem and keeps clicking when you're using it. The beds are very firm but only half of us found that a bit uncomfortable, it's really just preference. It was amazing to have keyless entry, a washer and dryer, a dishwasher, and a beautiful balcony. We would absolutely stay here again.

Charming, close in, quiet and comfortable apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed at Seattle Turret House, both times when visiting our daughter who lives nearby. We rent frequently through VRBO, and this is among one of our favorite places to stay. It is a wonderful, bright, quiet and clean apartment in a lovely neighborhood within walking distance of many fine restaurants. The views of the twinkly city lights at night are really nice. Its proximity to Seattle University would make this a perfect place for visiting parents to stay. William is a wonderful host. It is smooth and seamless to work with him. He responds quickly to both email and texts and is very helpful and accommodating. We highly recommend the Turret House.

Great place

  • 4 of 5

Great base for a visit to Seattle! The apartment is spacious, very clean and well-maintained. Lovely partial view of downtown Seattle at night. Trader Joe's is three blocks away and Elliott Bay Book Company about a five-minute walk away. Don't miss the Oddfellows Cafe next door! Communication with William was great. He was very accommodating and replied to our emails in a very timely manner! Thank you, William! We loved our stay at the turret house!
