About William

I've lived on Capitol Hill since 1990 and still it's my favorite Seattle neighborhood! I'm happy to help you find your way around the city or direct you to some of my favorite sites and restaurants, please feel free to call with any questions about booking

William purchased this apartment in 1995

Why William chose Squire Park

Capitol Hill is a gorgeous historic neighborhood, with beautiful homes and gardens, and super convenient to all the things I love about Seattle! It's quiet and peaceful yet everything you need is close and easy to get to--if you like to walk and see the real character and street life of a city this is a perfect place to stay. The building is charming, with unique architectural details and character, the apartments are super comfortable and a quiet retreat for relaxing at the end of your day. A great base for exploring the city of Seattle and the Pacific Northwest!

What makes this apartment unique

Ideal location in a great walkable neighborhood, close to excellent markets (e.g., Trader Joe's, Central Co-op), a great variety of restaurants, coffee shops, taverns & nightclubs, all surrounded by historic mansions, lovely gardens and unusual architecture. From here it's easy to get to most of the major tourist attractions (Pike Place Market, Space Needle, Houseboats, ferries, etc). Be sure to visit Volunteer Park, the Olmstead-designed crown jewel of Seattle Park System and home of the Seattle Asian Art Museum, a lovely Plant Conservatory, and at that top of the water tower the most amazing 180 degree view in the city!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We only wish we could have spent more time in the apartment! From the moment we walked in, everything was at our fingertips, every room was clean and comfortable. Location is great--away from all the commotion but still convenient to get all places. Will definitely recommend to friends & family! Thank you!

Cute house great location

  • 4 of 5

The house is comfortable and located in a great neighborhood. We hare overall very happy with our stay there. The beds are comfortable and the layout is great for two couples traveling. The owner was super responsive with all of the check in information and was gracious enough to let us check in early. I would certainly recommend this house based on its value and location!

Few things to note: 1) This is an old house so you can hear a lot of creaking from the floor boards upstairs and the rest of the apartment 2) The blinds are not the greatest so if you are visiting in the months where the sunrise is in the early hours you may get woken up 3) There are no full length mirrors in the apartment

Charming updated apartment

  • 5 of 5

This property has charm but the advantage of updated kitchen and bathroom. In a quiet neighborhood but easy access to freeway. Everything was very clean. Washer and dryer are in one of the bedrooms but look nearly new and worked well, without excessive noise. We will stay here again when we next visit Seattle.

Great location for Seattle U and if like a walking to the Market as much as we do!

  • 4 of 5

The main floor apartment was very nice -- bright, light, clean. It was a good value, and for our needs, perfectly located. We could walk to campus, to my workout studio (Barre 3), coffee shops. We love to walk, so we were not intimidated by the walk to/from Market. We will definitely try to stay here again, but may choose level 2 or 3 to see something different and not hear the people above.
