Overview

Property Details

Updated: Aug 17, 2016
One Bedroom, One Bath, Queen Sleeper in the Living Room, Full Kitchen.

If you're looking for a comfortable apartment right in the middle of Seattle, St. John's is a great choice. We're in a very central location and the building is loaded with character. We've kept the original 1910 woodwork and hardwood floors and decorated with good taste and comfort in mind. This apartment is a one bedroom with a large living room with queen sized sleeper. The sleeper is one of those new types that is all foam, quite comfortable even for adults, and it makes a queen sized bed. The bedroom has a queen bed. Both the living room and the bedroom have LCD TV's with DVD players. The living room also has a writing desk and a couple of very comfortable stuffed chairs. The bath has a five foot shower. The kitchen is stocked with all the essentials and includes a full sized gas range.

This is a great location to walk to all of Seattle's sights. And it's a great place to be when you want to come home and relax. We're a 10 minute walk from the convention center, 15 minute walk from the downtown shopping district, 20 minute walk from Pike Place Market - but we think you never need to leave Capitol Hill, which is the heart of the action for incredible dining, music, entertainment and more!

A fun neighborhood. Come stay with us! You'll love it!

Lastly, please be aware that this is an urban environment! In any urban core, you can expect to hear street noise, often late into the evening. If a silent outdoor environment is important to you, downtown Seattle (or any big city for that matter) may not be the best place for you to stay. That being said, we think St. John's is an incredible place to experience the city from, and we've installed triple-pane windows to reduce the noise as well as put white noise machines in the bedroom to make sure you sleep easy. This unit is our quietest in the whole building, with the bedroom window going into a light well that is protected from the street.

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.

Location

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.
