Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Capitol Hill - 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.

Why Christopher Rugh chose Central

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 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.

Unacceptable and unlivable.

  • 1 of 5

Staying at this property was the most disgusting and miserable experience in my whole life. It was basically like a ghost or a haunted house and you wonder how anyone could put such a property for rent. It should have been demolished years ago.

The upholstery on the sofa and its cushions as well as the curtains were so worn that they was splitting. It was also located next to the freeway so we heard the traffic all night. The window wouldn't stay open. It was so dirty that I and my guest slept with our clothes. We even got bit by bugs during our stay. I paid handsomely for the property, but it was so bad that we left first think in the next morning and even forfeited our money. You get the picture.

A wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

Several colleagues and I spent a wonderful week in this house while at a conference in Seattle. The house has character, it is wonderfully equipped, with great kitchen appliances, cookware, and has a terrific deck/patio with a hot tub and a grill. The house is on a quiet street and is an easy 15 min walk from the convention center and another 10 min from the downtown market at the waterfront. Be sure to book the parking space if you have a car as the street is always full. The owners were professional and with excellent communication, and the whole process went very smoothly. Highly recommended; would definitely stay there again.

Repeat Guests, Perfect Home!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at the Oasis twice . We really love the location, the hot tub and the kitchen . The property is describe as what it is. One of the best rentals that we rented so far. Variety of restaurants and coffee shops nearby . Feels like you are in a city within a city. I personally love the interior of the house. We were able to bring our lovely dog during the trip with a reasonable additinal charge of 150. Looking forward for another family trip!

If you are over 30 you will not like this place. It is for young college kids. There is no landscaping in front of house, weeds and over grown bushes. Inside of house was ok,not as nice as pictures showed. We had to clean all dishes for they were not clean. We also cleaned all linen for they all smell mildew. We found the washer had Mildew in around door and other places. We cleaned washer and re-cleaned linens. For the back patio, it is a rotter old deck. All patio furniture was bad. Back yard is weeds and over trees.

I would not recommend this place.

Escape in the middle of the city

  • 5 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!

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.
