About the property

Centrally located 1 bedroom apartment

Stay in a historic 1916 Craftsman in the famous Green Lake neighborhood of Seattle. This unique one bedroom unit is a garden apartment, with plenty of windows that allow for lots of daylight even when it is raining. It offers a warm home away from home as you explore the Puget Sound area or visit family or friends in Seattle.

The garden is maintained for year round color and vibrancy. The two Adirondack chairs in the front yard can be enjoyed when Seattle's liquid sunshine takes a break. At the same time you are welcome to enjoy your dinner on the back patio.

Or take a picnic to Green Lake park. The house is located within blocks of the North Green Lake hub of businesses, restaurants, and cafes. And only a few walkable blocks from the Lake, one of Seattle's public libraries and the Seattle bathhouse theater.


The unit is amply supplied with things to make this your home away from home. A full sized kitchen with all the appliances and utensils you need to cook dinner or make breakfast. There is a burr grinder next to the coffee pot for you to bring your own coffee beans, or buy some local roast to brew during your stay.

One bedroom:

The bedroom sleeps two comfortably on a queen-sized mattress. Out in the living room there is room for a twin sized air mattress (supplied) if you have three in your party. More than that and the apartment will be too crowded.


Laundry facilities are available on site and easily accessed from the apartment.


A blue-ray DVD player, HDTV and cable channels are available for your entertainment, as well as some board games or if the owners are home we welcome a chance to get to know you over a beverage.


There is plenty of free and safe parking on the street if you have a car and the unit is only a few blocks from several bus routes.

Public transportation:

One block from the house is bus route 26 where the southbound bus will take you through the Wallingford neighborhood to Seattle Center (home of the famous Space Needle) then to downtown Seattle and ends at the ferry terminal - northbound to North Seattle College and Northgate mall. If you are here on business the 316 express bus gets you downtown during morning rush hours in 20 minutes!

Three blocks from the house you can catch the 45 to the University of Washington or to the new University Link light rail station. You can also catch the 62, which goes east to Magnuson park and the NOAA campus or south through the neighborhoods to downtown.

Seattle Pacific University at 4 miles from the unit is a short 10-minute drive away.


If you are missing something just knock on the door upstairs and I will see if I have it. Since the duplex is owner occupied, you have an instant neighbor to call on if you have any questions or needs.

This unit strives to be free of all synthetic fragrances and allergen free (although we do have cats upstairs). Candles, incense, air fresheners or any other synthetic fragrance are not welcome in the apartment at any time. A hepa-filter vacuum is located in the unit.

You are welcome to open the windows at any time. :)


MONTHLY RATE is $1875 (plus $100 security deposit and VRBO fee) - EMAIL OWNER FOR INFORMATION.

About Rebecca F Reuter

I grew up in Chicago, and studied to be a Marine Biologist. I value city living and I value nature. I love the amenities available in the city, but I also love the quite of nature. I have lived in Seattle for almost 20 years and love how it has grown into a city that serves as a model for recycling waste, growing or harvesting sustainable farmed or wild foods, neighborhood farmers markets, top-notch restaurants, diverse cafes and abundant public spaces. Within the same day you can experience the chaos of the city or the serenity of nature. Few places in the world can offer this diversity. This is why I call Seattle home.

Rebecca F Reuter purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Rebecca F Reuter chose Seattle

I bought this property because of it's location in the best Seattle neighborhood, Green Lake. It has a park-like setting, yet it has easy access to I5 and highway 99 to take advantage of the rest of the city or drive up to Vancouver B.C., down to Portland or across the mountains to Washington's wine country near Yakima.

The house sits on a cul-de-sac, where a staircase at the end of the road takes you down towards Green Lake park and many restaurants, cafes, bars, yoga studio and more.

The house is 100 years old (1916) and I have extensively remodeled and updated both units. The house is my home too. I live in the upstairs unit and am available to give recommendations on what to do and where to go.

What makes this apartment unique

There is a zen sitting area in the front yard with two Adirondack chairs and a lovely patio in the back with a BBQ. Great places to have your morning coffee or evening meal when the weather is just right.

Very comfortable and convenient !

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just completed our second stay at Rebecca's comfortable apartment. We enjoy the location in the fun Greenlake area that is very walkable. Restaurants, walking path around the lake, beautiful park space, library, grocery/deli, are all conveniently located.

The living space is very comfortable , clean, and well-appointed. We hope to return when we visit our Seattle family.

Very nice property and owners, and great location.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Rebecca's place. As was the case last year, everything was as advertised. The apartment is very nice, has a large living room and dining area. The kitchen is also a good size and is well stocked with utensils, silverware, etc. It is just a short walk (probably about 4 blocks) to Green Lake park and the Center which has a pool and gymnnasium for basketball. There are also outdoor courts for basketball. There is a well used paved trail around the lake which is about 3 miles long for walking, running and bicycling. The property is close to a variety of restaurants too. Thank you Rebecca and Jim!

Was such a great place to stay, much needed respite

  • 5 of 5

I was in Seattle to pack up my daughter as she moved out of the townhouse we own and prepare it for sale. Having this VRBO to come home to every day saved me. It is peaceful, spacious, well appointed, has anything that I would want and need. Rebecca the owner was kind and attentive when needed. I would highly recommend this property. I wasn't on vacation, so I can't say anything about the surroundings, however, the property was everything promised and more.

Quaint with easy access to I-5

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations were exactly as listed; full service kitchen, living/dining room combination, full bath with shower, queen bedroom and shared access to laundry. The property was very clean, well maintained and on a dead end street in a quiet and safe neighborhood. The owner was arriving as we did and they are great people. We would recommend breakfast at the Urban Bakery and the burgers at Blue Water (name was changing when we were there), both on Green Lake Drive at Wallingford, just 5-6 blocks from the property.

Green Lake Park
Car: recommended

Green lake is the most visited city park in Washington state. It is a recreation destination with a 2.8 mile paved loop, bathhouse theater, boat rentals including stand-up paddle boards, and community center that houses a beautiful indoor pool. There are many cafes featuring locally roasted coffees within walking distance from the rental. Plus, you are walking distance (3-5 blocks) to many restaurants as well as a few bars that have great happy hours and feature many NW brews.

Green lake is also a central location to get to many other activities. 15 minutes or less to downtown Seattle via I5 or highway 99, you can get to Seattle Center to visit the space needle or hop a ferry to explore the Olympic peninsula. If you are headed to the University of Washington, it is a short drive or hop a bus.
