About the Owner

I have been working with interior designers and architects in Seattle, New York City and Los Angeles for over 30 years. This has given me the opportunity to appreciate some of the finest design work available in this country. As part of my profession, I have been exposed to the best of the best available in North America and Europe. I thoroughly enjoy being able to share this experience with others through remodeling and renovation projects such as this delightful urban garden apartment. I also enjoy good company, wine and cruising on Lake Washington, Lake Union and the Puget Sound in our 1956 Chris Craft motor yacht. I can frequently be seen wearing a smile.

Convenient and comfortable

  • 5 of 5
This apartment was perfectly located for a weekend in Seattle, close enough to walk downhill to the Space Needle and in a lovely residential neighborhood with varied architectural styles. We tried some of the restaurants recommended by the owner and were very pleased. The bus is across the street and handy when our legs tired from walking the hills. The owner is very gracious and helpful, justifiably proud of the well-appointed and pristine apartment.

Great Spacious Apt

  • 5 of 5
The Skinny:

OWNER- easy to deal with and is very nice to give neighborhood recommendations

PARKING- if you have a rental car, there is a spot in front of the driveway you can park

KITCHEN- great modern kitchen with all the appliances that you would need if you want to cook

LIVING ROOM- comfy couch, big TV, and great windows

BEDROOM- great bed with nice linens, closet with luggage rack (nice touch), big dresser

BATHROOM- there is the hall bathroom which is lovely for privacy and there is the Master Bathroom which has soft towels and a huge tub. There isn't much counter space but you can store stuff in the medicine cabinet

BONUS- there are books and DVD's in the hall bath bookcase, there is a sweet patio to hang out on - there is a hot tub but we did not use it

ALSO- you can walk to a few neighborhood spots and if you feel up for it even walk to the Space Needle or MOHAI.

The only con is that you can hear the tenant above using their water and walking around (most active in the AM) so if you are a light sleeper, you may want to bring earplugs.

Great spacious apartment to hang in and use while visiting Seattle!

Everything about this apartment is of high standard. I was impressed by the attention to detail at every turn. The owner is quick to respond to any question I had with regard to the home, parking, or Seattle. My wife and I were very, very impressed.

The Perfect Choice

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I could not have been happier with this apartment. This was our first time going through VRBO for a rental, and we feel like we made the perfect choice. Our son lives in the Queen Anne neighborhood of Seattle, so we knew we wanted to be really close to him. It turns out we were within an easy 5 minute walk, which made things so convenient. We also rented a car, as we wanted to explore beyond Seattle during this visit. We were a little concerned about finding parking on the street, but the owner assured us this wouldn't be an issue, and it never was (were allowed to park along the street in front of the driveway of the residence). The apartment itself was beautiful! It was the perfect amount of space, it was immaculate and it had every convenience we needed. The furnishings are lovely and comfortable and the appliances are top notch. It was also a big plus to have access to a private laundry room and a printer. This enabled us to print our boarding passes for the flight home...and return with clean clothes! :) There were so many extra-nice touches that made us feel welcomed and at home, such as the complimentary coffee beans from Cafe Vita and the homemade shampoo & conditioner; but our favorite two things about the apartment were the gorgeous wall of windows in the living room and the super comfortable bed. Our bodies were still running on east coast time, so each morning we woke up early enough to see the sunrise behind Mt. Rainier (to the right of the porch), which was such a treat. After sunrise, we would gaze out the beautiful wall of windows, drinking our tea and quietly listening to music, while watching the birds flutter around the backyard. At the end of each day, we were both eager to climb into that bed for what we knew would be a super comfortable and restful sleep. Additionally, all communication with the owners was pleasant and timely. They went above and beyond in providing detailed instructions about everything we needed to have a hassle-free stay. We can't thank them enough for such an outstanding experience. We highly recommend renting this Queen Anne apartment to anyone who may be considering it. It really is a fabulous choice. We're happily anticipating another visit next year.

From the Owner

Seattle is arguably the most beautiful city in the United States and this apartment is perfectly situated to enjoy a unique private garden atmosphere while being close to all the important sights of the city. We have been living on Queen Anne hill for over 30 years and think it is the ideal location to see Seattle and all it has to offer.

From the Owner

We are centrally located near the heart of downtown Seattle and enjoy easy access via cab, car or bus. Although we are midway up one of Seattle's most notable hills, Queen Anne, we are mere blocks from the Seattle Center and South Lake Union. Boutique coffee houses abound and an outstanding selection of the finest dining available is never more than a few minutes away. Should you decide to stay in, your efficient gourmet kitchen overlooks a living/dining area furnished with classic mid century furnishings placed in a delightfully detailed 1926 bungalow renovation. Powder room facilities are discretely located near the entry and a small office/work area is furnished with a fax, scanner, copier/printer. The living area opens to a Brazilian teak deck that overlooks and steps down to a hot tub and 1,400 square feet of Montana Slate that has been set into a terrace and meandering path leading to the end of the yard.
