Overview

About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

You will be delighted as you descend from street level in a quiet family neighborhood to your garden-level suite opening onto a mature wooded greenbelt along the popular Burke-Gilman trail. You will open your private entrance to find a lovely,roomy apartment, providing two comfortable bedrooms. You'll have to decide whether to sink into the comfortable sofa to enjoy the big screen TV with cable, cozy up before the floor to ceiling windows to drink in the serene view of trees, birds and Lake Washington in the distance, or cook a gourmet meal in the well-equipped brand new kitchen. Your guests will relax and chat at the bar while you create, then you can share your bounty at the dining table, or al fresco on your private deck.

The first bedroom has a king size bed, huge closet and desk where you can log on via ethernet or wifi and work or surf in peace and tranquility. The second bedroom has an inviting queen size bed, convenient storage and a large window looking out on the wooded garden. This bedroom adjoins the full bathroom with tub and shower, separate vanity with plenty of storage.

You have your own laundry room, complete with front loader, high efficiency washer and dryer. Your suite will always be comfortable, with new natural gas heat and central air conditioning. You and your family will always feel safe with your own security system.

Your guest suite is your home away from home, secluded feeling but minutes away from all the amenities and activities you could want. You will find easy street parking in the uncrowded neighborhood. You are steps away from public transportation, taking the Metro bus to the University District, Seattle Center, Northgate, Ballard or downtown in minutes.

About Ron

Your host, Ron, has decades of experience in hospitality, as the owner of one of Seattle's most beloved restaurants. I expanded into home renovation during 2010 as general contractor as my wife and I brought our 1967 home into the 21st century. We updated every inch of the home and are comfortable on the first and second floors of this three story home. We especially love the location, the feeling of being in the forest as we gaze out on the wooded garden and watch the birds.

Ron purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Ron chose Seattle

We have lived in Northeast Seattle for years, but especially enjoy this home for its tranquil setting combined with easy access to everything we love. We can be in the Cascade or Olympic Mountains, on Puget Sound, or the San Juan Islands in no time. Our community is diverse, urban, literate and comfortable.

What makes this apartment unique

We adopted the Pacific Northwest as our home many years ago, have raised our children here, and are now ready to share our community with visitors. We trust you will leave Seattle as smitten as we are!

Immaculate, Lovely, Quiet

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 5 stayed for UW graduation weekend. Convenient to campus events. We parked 2 cars in the carport. Beds were quite comfortable, even the air mattress. The kitchen was equipped with all we needed to prepare food. Everything was new and clean. Plenty of towels, cloths blankets, books, a few games. Gas grill worked great as did gas fire pit. The back yard is lovely! We chose to dine in a lot because it was beautiful, quiet, calm and roomy in the yard. Quiet night's sleep, little noise above us. Highly recommend!

Beautiful getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 2 grown sons and I stayed here for 3 nights when we came to Seattle for a wedding at the UW. The location was perfect. Ron let us check in 2 hours early and met us there and gave us the tour.

The pictures really don't give the home justice. It's very roomy, modern and spotless. There's a nice little deck that looks out to a beautiful wooded area. Down a few steps and there's sitting areas and a wonderful gas fire pit.

The kitchen had everything we could possibly need including a fridge stocked with beer, wine, water and soda. There's a Keurig with lots of coffee choices. In the bathroom there are stacks of fluffy white towels and all the toiletries you could need plus a hot iron and a make up mirror. Beds were sooooo comfy. Anyway, need less to say- we'll be back!!!

Comfortable, quiet, and convenient

  • 5 of 5

My husband, adult daughter, and I stayed here for Mother's Day Weekend, 2017. It was everything we could want in a rental. There were plenty of towels, a good shower; we slept well, it was convenient to University Village (we walked there on the Burke-Gilman trail). No complaints from us!

Clean, comfortable, quiet

  • 4 of 5

The location is wonderful, off the street and overlooking a bike/pedestrian pathway. The place was clean - which makes it SO much easier to relax! Comfortable furniture and beds, lots of kitchen amenities, and a GREAT outdoor area!

Smoke detectors went off during both dinner times while I was cooking - even with the exhaust fan on. Minor nuisance.

We would go back, for sure!
