                                I had the opportunity to stay in apartments 3 and 5 on consecutive weekends and both times the stay was perfect. I hate to admit it, but I am almost never satisfied when I stay somewhere, usually because of cleanliness. The Turret House is by far the cleanest, prettiest, most comfortable place I have ever stayed--I can't recommend it enough. I agree wholeheartedly with the other positive reviews, but wanted to emphasize the clean and comfortable atmosphere as that is the most important factor for me when traveling. Looking forward to my next visit.

                                The perfect location for a holiday in Seattle. Booking on-line was straightforward. The apartment is delightful and well appointed spacious, comfortable and clean. The location is quite quiet, secure and relatively dark at night time. The beds and bedding are comfortable, we all slept extremely well. There are two large mini-supermarkets within easy walking distance. We loved the owners choice of decor, the furniture in the apartment had obviously been chosen with great taste. During our stay nothing was lacking as everything we could possibly want was there We highly recommend this apartment and we very much hope to return again someday..

                                This is a nicely furnished and provisioned apartment with a great little balcony on which we enjoyed afternoon wine and morning coffee. But you must also be prepared for urban noises here, too, including large jet planes overhead, emergency vehicle sirens, neighbors with loud music on the weekends, and the occasional loud car or truck passing by out front. Also, we had upstairs renters who were very heavy-footed with children who scampered back and forth in the evenings until about 10:00 p.m. for their bedtime. But if you can deal with those sorts of issues as well as a passing parade of some rooming house tenants diagonally across the street, this is a well-appointed, well cared for, comfortable unit and is very convenient to great coffee shops, micro-breweries, grocery stores (Trader Joes and a great local food co-op), cafes, restaurants, bakeries...and even a local distillery. Great area to explore and, walkable distance to the waterfront, or connected by bus transportation if you aren't much of a walker.

                                Recommended for: Age 55+, sightseeing.

                                My husband, two adult children, and I stayed here the three nights before our daughter's wedding. It was the perfect location for us. We loved the walkability in a beautiful and safe neighborhood and the proximity to Trader Joe's and our daughter's apt. The apt. #4, (middle level) was beautiful, spacious and very clean. We found everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. Loved the porch for morning coffee. Appreciated the tasteful furnishings and decor. The extra $10.00 per night for parking was well worth it for the convenience. Never met the owner, but he was very available and helpful by phone in the months and days before our stay. We would definitely stay here again!

                                I recently had the opportunity to stay in the turret house while on vacation with a group of friends. We were able to take advantage of the staircases to join the apartments, which was very convenient for eating breakfast together, etc. The apartments seem to be pretty sound-proof too, since though we knew all the apartments were occupied, we could never tell if anyone was home or not. My friends and I were pleasantly surprised to find the living room and master bedroom were larger than they appeared in the pictures. The second bedroom was a little small, but even with four adults, we did not feel crowded. The apartment is situated on a quiet street without much foot or auto traffic and feels very safe and residential, despite being only a 15 minute walk from the restaurants, nightclubs, and shopping that Capitol Hill offers. It was nice to be so close to night life without the noise one might find on the Pike/Pine corridor. There were also several grocery stores within a short walk, so it was easy to bring home supplies to make a meal or snack at the apartment. The apartment was well appointed with all the kitchen items you could need to cook meals at "home," and the two balconies were perfect spots to drink our morning coffee.

                                Apt # 4 was very cozy and house in good location, close to action without being in the hustle and bustle. Decor was beautiful. Kitchen was adequately equipped. Claw foot tub nice, but shower claustrophobic. Thanks for a great place to stay! Four and 1/2 stars!

Great restaurants and groceries nearby. The apartment had everything we needed for two couples to have a great Northwest vacation.

                                Our group of 4 thoroughly enjoyed staying at the Turret House Apt 4. It was very easy to gain access and walking distance to eclectic shops and venues. We even walked to Pike Place Market downtown from this location. The house itself was well maintained and came with enough furnishings that we needed. We didn't use the place to cook anything but the appliances and dining room furniture were nice enough to want to cook and have a dinner there. The owner was also very accommodating and would recommend him to anyone looking for a convenient and nice stay in Seattle.

                                We enjoyed 4 wonderful nights at this vacation rental! This apartment has the amenities we enjoy and is very tastefully decorated. The beds were comfy, has an outside porch with seating, plus the living area, kitchen and bath have all the essentials and more, including a great clawfoot bathtub! Staying here is a delightful alternative to a hotel. Feels like a Seattle home. This is a great location in Capitol Hill - close to downtown which is a real plus! We took walks to restaurants, shops, groceries, church and enjoyed the diverse neighborhood. We plan to return and recommend The Turret House with a 5* rating!!!!!!

                              About the owner: I'm William, I've enjoyed living in Seattle's Capitol Hill for over 20 years and know the neighborhood inside and out. I have renovated each apartment in the Turret House to create 3 unique and comfortable urban retreats. I love to travel and I speak both English and French.

                              Why the Owner Chose Capitol Hill:
                              Seattle’s most vibrant neighborhood, full of gorgeous original homes, historic architecture, beautiful parks, all set on the hillside providing stunning views of the city skyline, water and mountains. Vibrant and eclectic shopping districts with wonderful restaurants, cafes, bars and nightclubs. A rare urban oasis that is quiet and peaceful yet super convenient to all the city attractions!

                              The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                              Apartments are charming, spacious and unique, set on a large corner lot with mature trees and flower gardens, making for a peaceful retreat in the heart of the city. . . a great base for exploring the best of Seattle and the Pacific Northwest!
