About the property

Walk to all the sites, great dining, & more. Then relax in this charming studio.

We call this lovely flat Swallow's Rest. It’s designed to be the perfect place to catch your breath after a day soaring about the city – whether you’ve been site-seeing or flying between back-to-back meetings.

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

Built in 1922 and converted to condos in 2007, Swallow's Rest is filled with charm and everything you'll need for a fabulous urban experience. The windows open out over an interior courtyard, letting in lots of light and shielding you from the noise of the city. Step outside and you’re a quick walk from Pike Place Market, the Space Needle, AMZN & MSFT offices, great dining, music & more

The Neighborhood.

Swallow's Rest 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 Swallow's Rest, 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)

• 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.

Swallow's Rest 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.

Perfectly Placed Comfort!

  • 5 of 5

Our 3 city tour of the Pacific Northwest ended with our stay here in Seattle. The studio is sized well for two people. The property has been decorated in a smart and well-thought out way. There was a welcome basket for us which was a lovely touch. There were plenty of hangers which we also appreciated! Above all, this location in Belltown can't be beat! Walkable to EVERYTHING!

If I were to return to Seattle, I would surely hope to stay here again.

A good value that is clean and in a good location.

  • 5 of 5

The owners offer a well appointed, and clean efficiency apartment. Its location is a few minutes walk to Pike Market, Seattle Art Museum, the waterfront, or the Space Needle, & Chihuly Glass and Garden. There are nice restaurants within a few city block. It has a secure apartment building door. The only recommendation I have would be to supply additional towels, specially I recommend the owners add bathroom hand towels , and wash clothes to compliment the bath towels.

It is a good value in a good location.

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazingly awesime place to stay. Walking distance to everything important in Seattle. Love that we could walk to the store for things for breakfast. Even cooked dinner one night when we stayed. Convenient to have a washer to wash clothes if needed. Super clean and VERY conveniently located to everything. Only thing i can say bad is that we were lect only towels no hand towels or wash clothes. Otherwise nothing but a awesome memorable stay
