Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this rental for five days. It is in a good location and safe neighborhood. The apartment was clean and comfy. A plus was the on site parking because parking on the street was very limited. We didn't need to contact the manager for anything while we were there, but any emails I sent previously were answered right away. Since many of our days were spent away form the area we did not use the restaurants around the area. However, we drove past many that looked very interesting. We would recommend a trip to the Olympia National Park - it was one of our favorite things we did. Other attractions we loved were eating at the Needle, seaplane ride over Seattle, Chihuly, and whale watching (among many others).

Home Capitol Hill Home

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Bob's house during our summer jaunt to visit our son in Seattle. This was perfect as he was literally two blocks away - we were able to walk back and forth and leave the car parked. We were also able to walk to the grocery store (QFC on Broadway) as well as to restaurants in the Capitol Hill area. Parking in Seattle is not easy and so the off street parking is a big plus. The condo is quite comfortable and is a home away from home. Pictures are accurate and the place is very clean and modern. FYI, there was an issue with the washer not working. I called the handyman who said that it was in need of repair and he offered to take my laundry and do it for me. That was very kind but I just took it to my son's and then dried it at the apartment. We used the kitchen each morning for breakfast and cooked dinner one night. I like renting from VRBO instead of a hotel even if I don't use the kitchen. Just more room. The provided fans helped circulate the air on one particularly warm day but it never got really hot and later, with the windows open, the apartment cooled down quickly . It was quiet for the most part. No noisy neighbors. I appreciate the rules you have set for all three units being quiet in the evening. You can hear some traffic in the bedroom with the window over the bed open but we closed that and kept the back window open and it was perfect. We will definitely stay here again with our son so close by. Thank you for a really nice stay!

Very nice and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was exactly as advertised. It was clean, comfortable, well-located, the parking was a real plus, and it was nice having a kitchen and laundry facilities right in our apartment. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

A beautiful place in excellent condition in an outstanding neighborhood!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful week in this apartment! The location was perfect for us - near where our son lives and in a neighborhood full of great restaurants and shops in easy walking distance. We had a car, but the apartment is very close to the light rail too! We had a small glitch in that when our stay was just a few days away, we had to ask for the arrival information a couple times before we got a response, which was a little disconcerting, but once we received the information, everything was perfect!

Excellent Location, Off-Street Parking a Plus!

  • 5 of 5

This lower level 1BR was just perfect for our one week stay in Seattle. Nicely furnished, roomy and fully equipped we couldn't have asked for more. We always dined out for dinner, but this kitchen was fully capable of preparing a fine meal. All new appliances, even a full sized washer & dryer. The off street parking was a real plus, made it super easy to park our car and get in from the rain!

Great location in Cap Hill. Easy walking distance to everything or a short Lyft/Uber ride when raining (yes it does a lot of that!)

Would highly recommend and would stay there again.

Owner's Response: I'm glad people appreciate the large parking area. Parking is super important on Capitol Hill and many places not only charge extra for parking, but their parking spaces are tiny and very difficult to get in and out of. We went to great lengths when renovating the house to make parking a priority and it is nice to know guests appreciate the effort!

Location

Car: not necessary

This luxury Seattle rental, located on trendy Capitol Hill, enjoys the enviable location of being within walking distance to dozens of restaurants, coffee shops, boutique shops, and bars while being far enough away from all the noise and traffic associated with these establishments. Or, if you enjoy urban parks, two of the city's oldest and largest, Volunteer Park and Cal Andersen Park, are 4 blocks from your front door. You can hop on the complementary bikes and tool around either of these parks or Capitol Hill's mansion district.

If downtown shops, theatres or tourist or Pike Place Market are your destination you on can cover the 1 mile distance by walking, driving or hopping on one of the frequent buses only one block away.
