About the property

Location, location, location! This is the perfect home-base for your Seattle visit. Built in 1922 and converted to condos in 2007, the building offers a touch of charming character in our high-tech city. We think of the studio as our “Jewel Box". With windows opening onto an interior courtyard, it’s light-filled and quiet – a good retreat at the end of a long day of site-seeing or meetings. Veteran travelers ourselves, we’ve equipped our “pied a terre” to maximize the urban experience.

(If the Jewel Box is unavailable, check out Swallow's Rest upstairs! There's a link in our profile.)

The Neighborhood

The Jewel Box is in a pretty perfect location. Here’s what you’ll find on a 10 minute walk:

• Stroll North and you’ll be at the Seattle Center, featuring the Space Needle, Pacific Science Center, Key Arena and Experience Music Project. The Gates Foundation is just across the street.

• Head South and you’ll be at the flagship Nordstrom store, Zara and a ton of great shopping. You’ll also find the Washington Convention Center in this direction.

• Meander West and you’ll be on your way to Pike Place Market, the Seattle Art Museum, the Great Wheel, Seattle Aquarium and the Ferry Terminal (take a ride to Winslow an enjoy the views and village).

• Walk East and in four blocks you’ll be at the center of high tech Seattle – Amazon, Microsoft and a number of innovative start ups have offices here. Plus a slew of great restaurants.

[For more ideas, check out the interactive map below]


Seattle is a very foodie town and within a block and a half of the Jewel Box, you’ll be spoiled for choice. (and the flagship Top Pot Doughnuts is just 20 steps from the building’s front door). If you want to dine in, there are three grocery stores within walking distance – including a Whole Foods.

Getting Around

With a Walk Score of 99, you truly can get just about everywhere on foot.

We don’t recommend renting a car for your visit – you can grab a cab at the airport or take the Link light rail to the Westlake station (35 minutes/$3) and you’re 4 blocks from the condo. If you do drive, there’s a parking garage half a block away with competitive overnight rates.

To explore Seattle’s other neighborhoods – Ballard, Capital Hill, Fremont, Madison Park and more – try Uber or (website hidden) any of these options:

• South Lake Union Streetcar (2 blocks away) on or

• Pronto Cycle Share (around the corner)

• Trip planning, King Country Metro (bus stops nearby)

If you want to explore outside the city, Avis, Hertz, Enterprise and Budget all have offices within walking distance. Great day trips include wine tasting in Woodinville or visiting Port Townsend, The Ho Rainforest and Mount Rainier.

Interaction with Guests.

We both work in high-tech and are often on the road. Since we aren’t always immediately accessible, Pillow provides first-level support during your stay. We have, however, put together our suggestions for what to do and see in Seattle (in addition to how to get around and where to find a drop in yoga class), so you’ll have the local perspective on how to experience our hometown.

The Jewel Box has a lockbox containing keys located on the railing near the entrance. The lockbox codes and check-in instructions will be available to you 48 hours before your arrival via the Pillow mobile-friendly House Manual.

Please remember that you will be staying in a home, not a hotel and we ask that you treat our space with the same respect you would show your own.

The Pillow team will be available for assistance via email.

Before and during your stay, you will have access to our mobile-friendly guest site that contains check-in instructions, access instructions, amenity details, FAQs, and a reporting tool for maintenance requests.

The codes needed to enter the property are available 48 hours prior to check-in in our online guest site.

Thank you in advance for respecting our house rules, they are very important to us. Please keep a reasonable volume so as to not disturb our neighbors, and do not invite other guests or have parties. We would appreciate it if you wash any dishes you use during your stay. Please leave the house in the same condition you found it as when you first arrived. You will be staying at a Pillow Homes approved property and guests are required to follow the Pillow rules and terms.
