About William

I'm William, I've enjoyed living in Capitol Hill for 20 years and know the neighborhood inside and out, and I’m happy to help you find your way around the city! I have renovated each of the apartments in the Seattle Turret House to create 3 unique and comfortable urban retreats.

William purchased this apartment in 2005

Why William chose Seattle

One of Seattle’s most charming neighborhoods, full of gorgeous original homes, tree-lined streets and mature flower gardens, as well as 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. One of rare urban places that is quiet and peaceful yet super convenient to all the city attractions!

What makes this apartment unique

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

Great Place to Stay in Seattle

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable stay at the Seattle Turret House (apt #5) over the Christmas Holiday 2016. The apartment was immaculately clean, just as pictured on the web with the night views of downtown Seattle from the Turrett room an extra bonus. The apartment and the neighborhood were very quiet, although commercial aircraft landing at SEATAC pass right over this building and can be heard especially at night. We would definitely stay here again. There are only 2 hooks and no towel bars in the bathroom so if you need more, pack some of those plastic “COMMAND” hooks that can be stuck on the wall in the bathroom or bedrooms and can be removed without damage. Worked great. Unfortunately we did not get to meet William, but then neither did we have a need to contact him.

Wonderful Experience

  • 4 of 5

My son and I came to Seattle for 5 days so that we could tour UW. We enjoyed staying at the Turret House and especially Capital Hill! It had everything we needed. Beds were very comfortable. We were gone all day most days and the house was a cozy home base. Walking distance to many quaint coffee shops and restaurants. We stayed in the Penthouse which is the top floor. (many outside steps) We would stay here again but might request one of the lower level apts. Very convenient to everything!

Great location in Seattle

  • 5 of 5

The Turret House, located on Capital Hill in Seattle, is centrally located to many attractions because of it wonderful proximity to public transportation. We did not rent a car and you don't need to if you stay at the Turret House. You can take the LINK from the airport to Capital Hill and walk about a mile to the house or take a bus one block from the house. You can walk to downtown or the University of Washington, if you don't mind some hill work otherwise, the public bus system is cheap and a great way to get around. We walked to the University which is a about a three mile walk down hill but rode the LINK back to the house. We took the bus to downtown, to Madison Park and to Madrone to eat and sightsee. The Underground tour is worth the money as is the locks cruise. Great accommodations and a comfortable place to come back to in the evening. Highly recommended.

Great location and apartment

  • 4 of 5

Location was awesome walking distance to Capitol Hill bars and restaurants. Also a 15 minute down hill walk to down town Seattle if you are for a stroll. Loved the penthouse suite lol. We were at the very top apt. Really liked it newer decor and bed was great. Full kitchen and washer and dryer. Only thing was the bathroom tub and shower was very small or else this would have gotten 5 stars. Other than that great apt and would rent again .
