Overview

Fairmount Park Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Studio, 1 Bath, Sleeps 3

Welcome to Suite Shagalicious. Live for a time like you’re on the set of Mad Men in 800 square feet of authentic, midcentury modern style, all part of a 1958 custom-built home by Swedish-born designer, Martin Ollas. This spacious, open-concept studio apartment is set to sleep you, and up to 2 others, in total comfort and style.

Proud with pedigree, Suite Shagalicious is a jewel within the showcase home praised for its architectural style and interior design chops, appearing in a full-feature layout for Seattle Times’ Pacific NW Magazine.

Punctuated with original art, including impressionistic figure paintings, and furnished with a mix of modern and period designer pieces, The Shag is a skillful blend of the iconic past and all the modern upgrades one would expect in a contemporary boutique vacation rental setting. Well-appointed eat-in kitchen, defined living and sleeping areas, full-service laundry room, private bathroom and shower, and a luxurious, wrap-around, wood-burning fireplace all located on one floor, no stairs. The wonderful advantage of this layout is everything centers on the fireplace and the HD Satellite TV to enjoy from both the bed, and the sofa.

Speaking of comfort, we receive many accolades for our king size, memory foam, Bragada bed. Outfitted with 4 pillows; 2 Pacific Coast down (no goose feathers, here) and 2 memory-foam, this bed is one of luxury rarely available even at high-end hotels.

The additional traveler in your party will enjoy the suites’ American Leather Comfort Sleeper, a sofa that opens to a Double bed featuring an exclusive memory foam mattress on a platform foundation. This sleeper is the industry standard, guaranteed to provide a superb nights’ sleep without springs. No fear of losing coin flips, here!

Of particular value is the advantage of private outdoor living space that comes as a bonus with the suite rental. The outdoor areas live like that of a full-sized home thanks to the professional talents of landscape architect, Brooks Kolb and Tallar Landscaping & Construction. A gorgeous, well-lit, private entry and serene, modern water feature greet you at the front door. The water feature placement ensures it can be seen from the kitchen and heard through the open window to wonderful effect. The single-light back door opens to a private, all-season, covered cedar porch for magnificent sunset views over the Puget Sound and snow-capped Olympic peaks. The sea air here is remarkable. And beyond the porch lays a gated courtyard for BBQ’s and other private-use enjoyment. Past the gate is a fire bowl for campfire-style entertainment during summer-season…toasted marshmallows, anyone?

There’s no shortage of free, convenient street parking near this property managed by Sea to Sky Rentals. The corner bus provides a 10-minute ride to Downtown, leaving every 20 minutes. Alki Beach and Fauntleroy Ferry are both 7-minute rides. Our location is only blocks to the California Junction and Farmer’s Market. With a walk to Morgan Street Junction shopping, drug store, convenience store, library, golf course, parks and church.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Here on a work trip where the assumption was I'd stay in one of the big downtown hotels, but saw this place and am so pleased I booked it up instead. My only worry was that travel into the centre would be difficult, but getting in from The Shag is really easy. A bus stop about a 100m away and one simple trip gets you to the centre. Added to which at the Shag you get great views, a very comfortable, well equipped apartment (the Wi-Fi was also useful for keeping in touch) and a perfect base for hiring a car to explore the Seattle area. Highly recommended!

Reviewer Comments:

This 50's style studio was a little quirky In a good way as far as decor. It was in a convenient location and we went from Mt St Helen to Anacortes and all in between. We had everything we needed and the layout was well thought out. I highly recommend it.

Reviewer Comments:

The apartment was very clean and comfortable with lots of hooks and shelves in the bathroom! The laundry room was a welcome space - it served as my husband's reading room when he awoke earlier than I did! The outdoor sitting area is lovely, the view magnificent. And the apartment is only perhaps a block and a half from a bus stop to downtown. I hope the apartment will be available when I next travel to West Seattle.

Comfortable accommodations. Friendly owner -- thanks for the midnight check-in gift of milk for my morning coffee, good lady! I wish all communities, ours included, would use Seattle's household recycling methods.

This was a perfect home base for our trip to explore Seattle and the surrounding area. Clean, quiet, easy parking, and just a quick drive to downtown and the ferries to get away from the city too. The decor was so fun, and the kitchen provided all we needed to cook most of our own meals. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!

We loved Shagalicious. It was comfortable, has a great location, and West Seattle is an adorable city. There are all kinds of fun and tasty places to eat. We even went to the Farmer's Market! Shagalicious is an easy and close drive into downtown Seattle. The suite itself is a fun look back at the 50's and 60's. If we come back to Seattle, we are going to stay at Shagalicious!
