URBAN OASIS- CHEF'S KITCHEN, HOT TUB, WI-FI- AND WALK DOWNTOWN

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Seattle - The Capitol Hill Oasis

With 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, this property will accommodate 10 guests

The Oasis is a spacious, Craftsman-style house situated in the heart of the lively Capitol Hill neighborhood! This property offers 2300 square feet of living space that spans two floors with accommodations for 10 people.

Capitol Hill is Seattle’s second most densely populated neighborhood, one of its most diverse and boasts a lively sidewalk culture (you won’t walk very far without encountering one of our many coffee houses) and energetic nightlife (from fringe theater to live music)! You’ll find no shortage of bars and restaurants to serve cravings of any nature within walking distance of the Oasis.

The arrangement and interior design of the Oasis is heavily influenced by the principles of Feng Shui and this application lends to the already inviting air created by the architectural elements of this property.

Upon entry into the functional foyer (set down your luggage, hang your jacket and slip out of your shoes!), you’ll be delighted by the easy flow of space that connects the dining and family rooms with the gourmet kitchen.

In the dining room, the custom-built, low-set table is situated in front of a picture window and is surrounded by an array of cushy chairs. Ten to twelve people can dine comfortably here and the feast that you create in the gourmet kitchen can be elegantly offered atop this table. If you visit Seattle during the chillier months, the wood-burning fireplace will provide warmth while you graze your plates.

About Christopher Rugh

I own multiple businesses and travel a lot. I sit on the board of a few non-profit organizations. I enjoy travel, rock climbing and generally live life to its fullest! I enjoy opening my home to friends and family for celebrations of all sorts!

Christopher Rugh purchased this house in 2004

Why Christopher Rugh chose Seattle

I've enjoyed living in my Capitol Hill Oasis since 2004 and wish to share its comfortable environment and desirable location with those planning to visit Seattle for business or pleasure. Capitol Hill is Seattle’s second most densely populated neighborhood, one of its most diverse and boasts a lively sidewalk culture (one mustn't walk very far without encountering one of our many coffee houses) and energetic nightlife (from fringe theater to live music)! And there's no shortage of bars and restaurants to serve cravings of any nature within walking distance of the Oasis.

Truly an oasis

  • 5 out of 5
Amazingly quiet and peaceful refuge amid a bustling, vibrant city neighborhood. Spotless, beautifully and eclectically decorated home worth visiting just for the cedar hot tub--perfect for us on a cool, clear winter evening. Have you ever soaked in a cedar hot tub? SO much different from the chemically plastic variety and a huge treat for me. Comfortable beds with nice sheets, comforters, and cozy living area. Gourmet kitchen. Truly hard to decide to leave this interesting and easy-to-settle-into retreat to explore the city--fortunately for me, I live in Seattle and can explore at my leisure--owner had great recommendations! Will definitely make this a repeat experience: was an amazing setting for getting away with friends while staying close to home. Thanks for providing the extremely comfortable and beautiful backdrop for a memorable retreat.

Escape in the middle of the city

  • 5 out of 5
Amazing house with inspiring decor and superb amenities. The hot tub is a glorious treat after a long day out, and the kitchen made it easy to cook for a large group with ease. All the beds were very comfortable, and the large trees in the backyard made it feel like you were truly in an Oasis. The location can't be beat, great brunch just around the corner and a super friendly and well stocked store a few blocks away. Transit it easily accessible and we all found it very easy to navigate the city easily from our cosy base. As a frequent visitor to Seattle I was very pleased to find such a lovely and inviting home in such a convenient area. We shall return!

Great house for relaxing and hanging out

  • 5 out of 5
We rented the Urban Oasis for four nights to accommodate our family (husband/wife/2adult sons/ a daughter in law/85 year old mother) while visiting Seattle. The 3 bedrooms and the loft provided comfortable beds for all of us. There was enough room in the well equipped gourmet kitchen for 6 cooks to prepare meals. The house provided plenty of areas to hang out including the living area, dining area and since the weather cooperated we also enjoyed the large deck. Equally as important the property manager was easily accessible before,during and even after our stay. Great rental experience.

Excellent for families and pets!

  • 5 out of 5
We were a group of 8 (plus a small dog) and had a wonderful time at the Oasis. It has a great location in Capitol Hill, just a few blocks away from some great restaurants, markets, and small shopping stores. It was also walking distance from downtown Seattle, and a few blocks away from major bus routes. The hot tub is great, especially when it's slightly chilly out. It was clean and well kept and you can soak in it while someone makes your dinner. Speaking of dinner, we really appreciated the modern gas stove tops and appliances. We got some great produce from Pike Place Market and were able to have them cooked right in the kitchen. Our party ranged from a small boy to the elderly so it's really great for everyone. It really felt like a home away from home.

This is afterall an Oasis in Seattle

  • 5 out of 5
An excellent location, situated in the city, in a great neighborhood, with a beautiful backyard you get the best of both worlds - city life and a lovely oasis to rest in after a busy day of activities. The house is well equipped and has a wonderful hot tub to rest and relax in after a busy schedule. You are so well situated in Capitol Hill, walking distance to great restaurants and shops, close to public transportation as well. If you are looking for a home for your next city vacation we highly recommend this Oasis for its location, well equipped kitchen, and backyard.

Oasis in Seattle

  • 4 out of 5
A lovely city center vacation location for Seattle, it truly is an Oasis. Nicely furnished in the heart of the city this 3 bedroom/ 2 bathroom with a spectacular back yard and deck is a gem of a find for your Seattle City vacation. It was the perfect backdrop for our vacation/ wedding planning location for our daughters wedding. We enjoyed every part of the location. Being in the heart of Capitol Hill made navigating to shopping, dining, and other key locations so easy. There is a dedicated parking space which is key in this parking encroached area. All of your needs are looked after in this amazing little piece of city heaven. We highly recommend this property for your next Seattle stay.

Location

Location

Car: not necessary

Draping over a hilly ridge just east of downtown, Capitol Hill is an eclectic enclave. Three colleges lie within blocks of each other (Seattle Central Community College, the Cornish College of the Arts, and Seattle University), providing plenty of customers for the area's museums, coffeehouses, and cool eclectic boutique shops.

The Seattle International Film Festival is based here, as is the city's annual Gay Pride Parade. In autumn, the Seattle Fringe Festival celebrates original plays coming out of the neighborhood's many small but notable theaters, including the Richard Hugo House and the Northwest Actors Studio. Galleries and cafés open their doors on the first Saturday of each month for Arts Orbit, Capitol Hill's art walk.

It's also home to the Frye Art Museum, where American and European paintings can be viewed for free, and the elegant Seattle Asian Art Museum, with its renowned collection of workshoused in a 1933 art modern structure in Volunteer Park.

Notes:
The Oasis is a spacious, Craftsman-style house situated in the heart of the lively Capitol Hill neighborhood! This property offers 2300 square feet of living space that spans two floors with accommodations for up to ten people. It is important to note that smoking is not permitted inside my home. My residence, with its peek-a-boo view of Lake Union and the flagship REI store, is unusual in that it’s one of the closest single family housing units to Seattle’s downtown core and it’s the only single family residence on the block. The Oasis offers a large fenced-in backyard that provides a safe place for children and dogs to play, a charcoal barbecue grill and an all-cedar hot tub in which you can relax after a full day of sightseeing. The huge front porch is equipped with a comfy sofa and offers an ideal place for reading and lounging outdoors, even on a rainy day.
