About the property

studio apartment, 1 bathroom, sleeps 2 guests

The studio has a large living area that is light and airy. There is a view of the Puget Sound and Olympic Mountains. In the front alcove is a queen-sized Sleep Number bed. The studio is great for one couple or a family with one child young enough to sleep in our pack 'n' play, which we can provide upon request. There is a tv with 140+ satellite channels and DVD player, and a desk where you can set up your laptop to take advantage of our high-speed wireless internet.

In the kitchen, you will find a refrigerator, oven/stove, coffee maker, and microwave. The cabinets are filled with all the dishes and equipment you will need to prepare a snack or meal. We stock coffee and some pantry items to get you started.

The bathroom includes all the necessities. It has a shower only, no bathtub.

The studio occupies the second story of a rambling Craftsman-style home. The studio and main floor have separate entries and are completely closed off from one another inside. Your entry is up a flight of stairs in the backyard. Other guests us the main floor and a separate cottage on the property and share the yard space. The yard is a pleasant place to relax with an outdoor table and charcoal grill.

Although you may feel like you’re worlds away from it all when tucked inside the quiet, peaceful studio, you will actually be just 2-1/2 blocks from the heart of our neighborhood. Walk up the street to the West Seattle Junction to find great restaurants, coffee shops, shopping, a pharmacy, grocery stores, and nightlife.

Our neighborhood, West Seattle is also home to Seattle’s finest waterfront areas: Alki Beach and Lincoln Park. Alki provides summer fun and excellent views of downtown; Lincoln Park is great for a hike in the woods or a dip in the saltwater swimming pool. We recommend riding the Elliot Bay Water Taxi from Seacrest Pier to downtown Seattle.

By car, downtown Seattle is just 10 minutes. Or, another great hassle-free option is to hop on a metro bus and ride just 15-20 minutes.

About Laura and Joe Ross

Having both owned houses before we married in February of 2009, we decided to try the vacation rental business rather than sell either. Our first guests were Laura's family, in town for the wedding. Since then, with Joe's work as an entertainer and our joint project of raising our three kids, we are plenty busy! However, we take pride in putting our visitors first and have really enjoyed meeting our guests and sharing the city we love with them.

Laura and Joe Ross purchased this studio in 1990

Cute, quaint studio

  • 5 of 5

This is a charming, clean studio apartment with a good kitchen, nice views and a great location. A five or ten minute walk gets you to coffee shops, two grocery stores, and restaurants, and good access to bus service. We loved the Husky Deli and the Nouveau Bakery! The owner was very helpful when I called with questions.

The rental property was spacious and clean. The view was lovely and the location was near great.

  • 5 of 5

The rental was very cute and very clean and had a great view. The location was great and the apartment was well prepared with everything needed to make us feel at home and cozy. We appreciated the fact that the apartment had a bedroom, kitchen and living area with comfortable couch, wood floors and cable TV. The only warning I might suggest would be that there is a fairly steep stair case up to the entrance of the rental. This was fine for us, but I would want to know about this if I had any issues with climbing stairs or carrying luggage up the stairs. Laura was great about sending us information before we arrived and making sure we were settled in once we were in town.

Perfect spot for the feel of Seattle

  • 5 of 5

This is in a quaint location of a West Seattle neighborhood, with an awesome view from the bedroom window. The house is spacious and felt like home, open and airy. Cute decor. We were here in July and it was hot during the day, but upon our return to the house after a fun day in the city, it was amazing how quickly the house cooled off once you opened the windows. The bed was extremely comfortable and waking up to the look through the big window was perfect! Adorable coffee shop called C and P coffee just 2 blocks away. A must to start one of your days:) Joe and Laura were very patient with all of my inquirys as this was our first time to Seattle. We would definitely return.

Seattle visit.

  • 4 of 5

Very neat and clean. Had everything that we needed. And, the location was perfect. Close enough to walk to our son and daughter-in-law's home. We would stay again. So sorry about the mix up on our departure day. And, thank you for the new battery in the smoke alarm.
