Large One Bedroom at St. John's Apartments on Capitol Hill *Walkscore 99*


Property Details

Updated: Oct 24, 2016
One Bedroom, One Bath, Queen Sleeper in the Living Room, Full Kitchen.

308 is a one-bedroom apartment, perfect for a couple or up to four people using the sleeper sofa.

The red couch is an American Leather brand sleeper sofa with a solid foam mattress. It is a full queen so it sleeps two easily.

The living room has windows that look onto Pike Street, which is bustling with sights and sounds and interesting people to look at. People are out and about on Pike Street, especially on weekends.

The master bedroom has a very comfortable queen bed. The bedroom is in the middle of the apartment, so it's shielded from street noise.

The kitchen has a full sized gas stove, full sized fridge, a vented microwave and all the cookware and essentials.

We remodeled the bathroom in May of 2011, removing the old claw-foot tub and fixtures and installing a tile shower. There is now no bathtub in 308; the shower, however, has over five feet of space!

About the Owner

St. John's is owned by Oda Egeland. The short term apartments are her home away from home and she stays in them regularly when they are available. Bryce manages the short term rentals, he handles all of the booking, correspondence, and check ins. Johnny is our live-in building manager and resident handyman. We keep trying to improve the apartments and make them more like a home, super comfy and with all the conveniences you could possibly want.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here in this cozy home away from home. And what a great location! We walked to Pike's Place Market where we were able to buy fish and vegetables for a delicious home-cooked meal. We also walked to the water to catch the ferry to Bainbridge Island. We felt like we were in a great location to access everything we wanted to go do, and we got to return to "our neighborhood" to relax afterward. We hope to be back again.

Thanks so much!

Sweet Stay

  • 5 of 5

Had to get back to my youth as this neighborhood is party central. Being loud at midnight to 2am are my only complaints. The AC worked well and drowned out the noise. The accommodations were perfect. We walked in only 20 minutes to the Pike St. Market to buy sea-food and cooked in our well-equipped kitchen. Johnny and Christine were awesome.

First time in Seattle

  • 5 of 5

Love the apartment. It is spacious, comfortable. Only issue is 3 flight up. It is definitely not suitable for people with weak legs especially with big pieces of luggage to drag onto the 3rd floor. Otherwise, I love it. I will love to visit with my children again.

It will be great if more information provided for bus services around. We see buses but do not know where the stops are.

St. John's....A great Value

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed our stay in the apartment. The room had a nice old-time feel to it. It was fully and nicely furnished. The WI-FI and parking were nice perks. There are easily a dozen restaurants within 100 yards of the apt with a full fledged grocery store across the street. The kitchen was cozy...yet fully functional. Downtown is within easy walking distance (10-15 min)...although the walk back will be more difficult (uphill). The neighborhood has a young 20-something vibe to it.

The only (minor) downsides were the VERY basic cable (no ESPN or national cable news) and the couple of homeless people lingering around the grocery store.

Couldn't be better!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for the weekend in Sept. 2010 and LOVED everything about the place. It's exactly as the photos show and no exaggerations in the descriptions. Well stocked kitchen, easy going and helpful Johnny to take care of us, comfortable and CLEAN place, everything worked great. We also LOVED the ottoman and the comfy sofa bed. We've stayed in vacation rentals before and this was one of our faves. Will definitely stay again! Thanks!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in unit 308 on our vacation this August (2009). It was very comfortable and close to everything. Johnny was very helpful and accomodating--the perfect host. We were concerned about noise, as there are many nightclubs and restaurants in the neighborhood. But our fears were unfounded, as it was quiet in the apartment. We slept with the windows closed and the AC on. It may have been noisier if we had the windows open. The apartment had plenty of kitchen stuff, towels, etc., and there was a nice laundry room downstairs. We enjoyed the TV's (one in living room and one in bedroom). We would definitely stay there again.

From the Owner

St. John's is in the middle of Seattle, on Pike Street, right next to a large grocery store and surrounded by interesting shops and restaurants. It's in the middle of the most happening of all neighborhoods! There are three restaurants in the building, two more on our block, and dozens in the surrounding blocks. Plus there are lots of small stores and shops, lots of fun stuff. Two blocks away, for book lovers, is Seattle's oldest and best bookstore, Elliott Bay Books. It's a must see--a wonderful old building with a tremendous selection. And if you're into music, right next door to Elliot Bay Books is EveryDay Music, which is a huge music and video store. Got kids? Right across the street is Cal Anderson Park, jammed full of playing fields, sport courts and play areas with swings and such for the young ones. All in all ours is a great location!

Activity and Interests

Car: not necessary

We're in the middle of the Pike/Pine Corridor. Pike St. and Pine St. run parallel to each other from downtown up onto Capitol Hill. This area is currently enjoying a lively trend in business, with many new restaurants, bars, night spots, boutiques and specialty shops.
