Capitol Hill studio description
The Brass Bed Guestroom is a studio apartment in the basement of our turn-of-the-century “salt box” style home in the residential part of Capitol Hill. It has been recently renovated to provide all the amenities to make your stay comfortable. The queen-size bed plus a sleeper sofa can easily accommodate 1-4 persons (children should be 7 years of age or older). In addition to the sofa and several side chairs, the living room area has a 50” HDTV with a high-definition cable connection including a premium line of channels, a Blu Ray player with built-in wifi to stream a full range of Netflix movies and Pandora music selections all at no extra cost. High-speed Internet (WiFi) is also provided at no extra cost. Enjoy the designated work/study space that has a built-in desk and overhead lighting for your laptop.
The large kitchen is in a separate room. It has a full-size gas range and refrigerator, microwave oven (with popcorn) and dining table that can comfortably seat four. You’ll have a coffeepot (with fresh regular or decaf coffee ground to your taste), teapot (with a selection of teas), toaster and all the pots, pans, dishes, glassware and utensils you might need. We also provide an ironing board, iron, hair dryer and even a couple of umbrellas should you get an opportunity to experience Seattle’s liquid sunshine.
The bathroom has a full-size tub with a shower and a ceiling heater for added comfort. All the necessary towels and linens are included.
We have designed our backyard to provide a great place to relax and entertain. There’s plenty of seating area, a BBQ, large table with an umbrella and a big fish pond with a water feature to provide a peaceful ambience. A table-top propane heater is available for chilly evenings.
While on-street parking is generally available, our driveway will easily accommodate your car at no additional cost. A private side entrance with a keypad lock affords easy access and security. A few stairs take you to the actual entrance of the apartment with its own entry door. With respect to security, we have a centrally monitored security and fire detection system.
Public transportation is one block away. The #49 Metro bus will take you to the Capitol Hill business and entertainment district, to downtown Seattle and north to the University of Washington. This bus also connects you to nearly all parts of Seattle’s metropolitan area and even to the airport via our new light rail “Link” system. If you are flying into Seattle, the Link and the Metro bus provide door-to-door service to the Brass Bed Guestroom. Walking, biking and maybe one of the many daily rentable cars are other good transportation options. And how about a water taxi to West Seattle for fish and chips and a volleyball game on the beach, or a ferry ride to Vashon Island or to the San Juan Islands, or even an overnight getaway to Victoria in British Columbia?

Excellent Capitol Hill Rental
Excellent Capitol Hill Rental
Owners, Larry and Suzi were super kind and accommodating in making our stay welcoming and warm despite the rainy November Seattle weather! Larry also made it extremely easy for us to communicate prior to our arrival. The house is beautiful and clean. The bed is super comfortable and the full kitchen great for preparing meals, including a stocked fridge with drinks. This is a lower level unit and ceilings are a little low in some places, but this did not bother us. We were warm and enjoyed the flat screen TV with so many channels and Netflix. We parked our car in the driveway and on the street (plenty of space). The neighborhood is quiet and beautiful with older homes. Extremely walk-friendly with shops, public transit, and restaurants nearby. Recommended!

Capitol Hill Rental with awesome owners

This rental was perfect for out trip to Seattle. The unit was one block away from my Son's condo so we could walk there everyday. The owners were awesome and so helpful. The unit is clean with everything we needed. The bed was so comfortable, Netflix provided and even popcorn if you wanted. We used the patio out back for a family gathering and there is a grill you can also use. I highly recommend staying here and would stay here again when visiting Seattle.

The description And photos were exactly as shown. The property was clean and well maintained. Beautiful historic neighborhood. The owners were very helpful and kind. Friendly, but respected my privacy. Lovely serene back deck which I enjoyed using. I utilized the city bus, which took me to Broadway, which has many shops, etc. also the bus is excellent for city Center, where all the sightseeing takes place.

Pleasant stay on Capital Hill
Pleasant stay on Capital Hill
Spacious fully fitted clean apartment in basement would be good for much longer stay as well (we were only in town 2 nights). Low ceiling in places not a problem for us but taller people might feel constrained. Very comfortable bed, full kitchen. Friendly helpful landlord on site but not intrusive. A bit far to restaurants or groceries so appreciated stock of drinks in fridge. Quiet neighborhood despite proximity to freeway. Note no pets allowed. We would prefer a place that allowed pets but could find none on VBRO (and we understand why). Would return, and recommend to friends.

Year Purchased: 1992
About the owner: We are Larry and Suzi Hettick. We're both from Oregon and have lived in and traveled to many US and overseas locations. We moved to Seattle in 1992 to make this our forever home. Restoring it to its original condition while remodeling and upgrading it to accommodate modern features has been our passion. Our basement was our latest project – over a year in the making, we have transformed over 500 square feet of space into an apartment that provides all the comforts of home. We selected this location for its historical heritage, convenient access to all Seattle has to offer, and friendly neighborhood atmosphere. You will definitely feel welcome here. We like to think we have good experience with most of the things to do in Seattle, and we always like to share such information with other people. There are lots of things to do and so little time to do them! We are always available to help you plan and then enjoy your Seattle trip. We truly look forward to meeting you.
Why the Owner Chose Capitol Hill:
The Brass Bed Guestroom provides a peaceful, private getaway space in a comfortable urban neighborhood with true convenience to Seattle. Park your are in our driveway and take advantage of public transportation. You are just minutes away from all the hustle and bustle of downtown and the excitement of Capitol Hill’s commercial and entertainment scene. You can stay totally busy taking in all the sites and sounds of the area or just sit back, relax and watch a movie on our big screen TV or barbeque something on our backyard deck. It’s all possible and we will do everything we can to meet your needs.
The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
Seattle really is a “take-advantage-of-it” kind of city. The Brass Bed Guestroom gives you the base from which to enjoy your time here. We have one real goal – to give you the space, tools and comforts of a home-style environment to maximize your visit to our city. We are in an ideal location; it’s safe, secure and private, and in a residential neighborhood that welcomes visitors – and yet just a stone’s throw away from whatever might interest you. It’s perfect for both business and vacation travelers.
