Overview

About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

309 is a two-bedroom apartment with two baths. It's our largest apartment at almost 1000 sq. ft. and can sleep up to six.

All of our apartments are stocked with kitchen and bathroom essentials, blow dryers, irons, ironing boards, and free wifi access.

The master bedroom is large, with two double-hung windows looking out over E. Pike. The bed is a California king, extra long and very comfortable. The master bathroom is split into two areas--a shower and toilet in a small room by themselves, and a sink / vanity counter set back off the entry alcove.

The second bedroom is in the middle of the apartment, so it's shielded from street noise. It's the most quiet of all our bedrooms. The window looks out into a light well, letting in natural light but not street noise.

The bathroom in the hall has a claw-foot tub with shower.

In the kitchen there is a gas range, vented microwave, full size fridge and a complete selection of cookware, plates, glasses, even cooking oil and a few spices--everything you need to cook and eat in the apartment. There is a small two person table.

The front door opens to a long hall with original V.G. Fir flooring. It's been there since 1905 and was covered for many years with linoleum tiles and then with carpet. When we bought the building we decided to restore some of the wood floors. It turned out to be much harder than we thought, since the old tiles were stuck with some sort of felt paper that would only come up with hand scraping, an inch at at time. The result was worth it. The floors have a depth of color and they are beautiful. This building has such a long and interesting history, it's a treat to stay here!

Please be aware that this is an urban environment. In our neighborhood you can expect to encounter people from all walks of life and hear noise, often late into the evening. If a silent outdoor environment is important to you, this part of Seattle may not be the best place for you to stay. That being said, St. John's is an incredible place to experience the city from, and we have security systems, triple-pane windows to reduce the street noise as well as white noise machines in the bedrooms to make sure you sleep easy.

About Bryce Montgomery

We have eight short terms rental units in the same building, which Oda owns. She has St. John's as an investment, but she's not a big real estate investor, it's her only building. We've had a very good experience with it, the location is excellent and the people we've met here are wonderful. It's a great neighborhood, vibrant, filled with things to do and places to go. It's much better than downtown Seattle, which closes up shop in the evening and has an empty, big tall buildings. Our area comes alive at night, filled with restaurants, bars and boutiques. It's like being in New York City or maybe Paris, except since it's Seattle, everybody's friendly here.

Why Bryce Montgomery chose Capitol Hill

RESTAURANTS: If you're new to the area you will be surprised by how many great restaurants there are within a few short blocks of St. John's. We have three in the building: The Other Coast Cafe features East Coast Style Sandwiches, St. John's Bar and Eatery is an American/bistro, and Ayutthaya is a Thai restaurant. All of these are great places! On our block there is yet another fun place for lunch-a sandwich shop called The Honey Hole. Heading toward Broadway, there is a Subway and the QFC Grocery Store. Once you get to Broadway there are restaurants in every direction, several to choose from, on every block. Without trying hard we could name 25 great eateries, all within a short walk. It's a diner's delight!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Location

St. John's is located about 8 blocks from the Washington State Convention Center, on the same street. It's an easy walk. After you pass by the Center you're in the downtown shopping district with Nordstrom's, Macy's and all the big name stores. If you keep going you end at the Pike Place Market, one of Seattle's big tourist draws. (For a good reason, it's a fun place!) The entire walk from us to the market is 16 blocks.

Other Activities: We're in the middle of a very lively neighborhood. Exploring it will give you days of fun. Across the street is a large grocery store, a drug store, dry cleaners and a UPS shipping facility. There are many botiques, restaurants and night spots in the neighborhood.

Perfect Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Property as described.

We are an adventurous family of 5, and we had enough room for everyone to feel comfortable. The apartment is located in a lively, active neighborhood, which suited our family well. There is a grocery store across the street, and several restaurants and coffee houses within steps of the property. We felt safe in this neighborhood (always important) and the keyed entry door at the street level made us feel even safer. The apartment building is older, but kept-up beautifully.

This particular apartment is up two flights of stairs, and we did not see a lift, so keep this in mind. The interior of the apartment building is very quiet, we heard not a peep from other residents. There is a coin laundry inside the building, a very convenient option.

Upon entering the apartment, we were greeted with beautiful hardwood floors down a long hallway. Everything was clean and the furnishings complemented the place perfectly. The kitchen was well-equipped and all supplies were provided (paper towels, soap, dishes, utensils). Both bedrooms had comfy beds, air conditioners, televisions, and good lighting. Both bathrooms were spotless and had plenty of towels, TP, shampoo, soap, and bodywash available for use. Living room area had plenty of seating for our family: one sofa, two large chairs, and a cafe table and chairs. There are large windows in the living room, to let in the light and view the beautiful trees.

In my opinion, the best part of staying at this property has to be its location. It is within walking distance to many sight-seeing destinations. We did not rent a car, and we were able to get to all the places we wanted to go by foot or by Light Rail. Keep in mind that the property is up-hill from downtown, and you will get a workout! There is also noise on the street during weekend nights, as noted in the apartment description.

Response from property manager Bryce was quick and helpful throughout our visit. We found the entire process of renting this apartment easy and flawless.

A very smooth stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in apt. 309. It was exactly as advertised, the staff friendly and helpful. But the best thing abou St Johns Apts. is the location. There's a 24 hr grocery literally across a side street, and amazing restaurants galore. It's also an easy walk to many parts of the city. We travel to Capital Hill/Seattle a few times a year, and this sure beats a hotel, we WILL be back!

Perfect base for exploring Seattle

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this apartment. It was in the great spot for touring

Seattle. The place was so comfortable and clean. We were 2 couples and we

never felt crowded. Having a grocery store right there was great. Also, there were many places to eat withing walking distance. We bought the Seattle City pass and enjoyed all the major attractions for 1/2 price. Also, enjoyed a ferry ride to Bainbridge Island for shopping. We have all decided we will return to Seattle again and rent this place! Tip: Uber is great for getting here from airport and getting around Seattle.

Good Location

  • 4 of 5

We were 2 senior couples from Australia, traveling together.

We found St Johns Apartment very comfortable, clean and tidy

with 2 bedrooms & bathrooms separated from one another, the beds very comfortable.

Lounge/dining and kitchen had every thing you needed

QFC grocery store across the road was very handy.

We didn't have a car and used the Local bus to get back up the hill at night, but a easy walk down the hill to Downtown and all Attractions

The two steep flights of stairs was our only problem, with our large suitcases

we would stay here again and recommend it to most people

Great central place to stay to visit Capitol Hill

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at St. John's apts several times to visit my brother in Capitol Hill. These apts are very comfortable, with very comfortable beds, nice furnishings, and multiple cable tv's. There is a QFC across the road to stock up on groceries, and many great restaurants, coffee shops, and pubs to visit nearby. The managers are very responsive and helpful! I recommend this place!

Awesome location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Seattle. Great location with walking distance to downtown or short drive to main attractions. It was hot in Seattle during our stay and air conditioner in living room was not enough to make it comfortable sleep in small bedroom. But I think those hot days are not usual weather for Seattle :) Highly recommend that place.
