Property description

This basement apartment (1 queen bedroom, 1 bath) is spacious (850 s.f.), newly constructed, beautifully finished, furnished and equipped. SEPARATE EXTERIOR ENTRANCE, WIFI, its own laundry room, limestone finished bathroom with tub/shower. Huge sectional, huge TV, dvd player, electric fireplace. This is a luxurious space, exceptionally cozy and spacious. All windows open. There is a lovely front yard garden with 2 chairs and a table where you can watch all the dog-walking.
The kitchen is fully equipped. 4 burner cook-top, microwave oven, full size refrigerator, counter top oven (no dishwasher). Oodles of closet and cabinet storage.

Street parking is free and unrestricted. I emphasize that there is no need for a car here. Minutes to downtown Seattle, Seattle Center, UW, etc. by bus.

Note that maximum occupancy is two adults. SHOES ARE SHED AT ENTRY. No smoking, No pets.

I have tried to represent this accommodation as accurately as possible.

This accommodation is also listed on airbnb. It is less expensive for guests to book through vrbo than airbnb. I have many reviews of the Urban Oasis on airbnb (listing#825574) which will give you more guest impressions.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: I am from Philadelphia but have lived in Seattle for 30 years. As an architect working on projects throughout Seattle, I have deep knowledge of this city. I respect the privacy of my guests. Most guests just want to do their own thing. If you want more engagement, recommendations of restaurants, cultural venues, let me know! I love sharing my experience with this remarkable city.

Why the Owner Chose Capitol Hill:
It's all about LOCATION. This part of CAPITOL HILL is the most sought after area to live. Several of Seattle's best restaurants (Tallulah's, Monsoon) Fuel Coffee, Molly Moon Ice cream, Cone & Steiner General Store are within one block. EVERY need can be found a few blocks walk away on 15th Ave. E: Walgreen's, QFC grocery store, more stores, bars, restaurants and coffee shops. Short walk to VOLUNTEER PARK. And, there is great bus service from this location.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
You feel like a local in this neighborhood. Urban but exceptionally QUIET and PRIVATE, located on a sweet, tree-lined street of single family homes with great access to public transport.
