Capitol Hill apartment description

This is a perfect place for one or two couples or a family on vacation. There is one 'master bedroom', a smaller 'second' bedroom, and a really comfortable living/dining/kitchen space.

And ours is a wonderful location to explore the city! Pike Street is a main arterial connecting Capitol Hill with downtown. From here it is about 10 blocks to the shopping district and then five more to the world famous Pike Place Market. The apartment is also very convenient to many Capitol Hill restaurants and stores, and the QFC grocery across the street is world class. It's a wonderful location and a great apartment, perfect for your get-away! We've been renting this apartment as a short term for 5 years now, and the response is great. Just read our reviews and you'll know, this is a great find!

This apartment has a combined kitchen/living and dining area. The kitchen takes the length of one wall and has a full size refrigerator, a stove with oven, and a microwave. There is a dining table seating four, and next to that a small living area with couch and large stuffed chair. We have a TV with DVD and VCR and an extensive movie collection. The apartment is supplied with Dish Network, with hundreds of stations including HBO. And of course there is high speed internet.

The master bedroom is on the corner of the building, with windows looking out on Pike and Harvard. It has a California king bed (it's 6' longer than a regular king size bed...great for tall people). The second bedroom has two twin beds. These are adult sized twins, longer than standard twins and with pillow tops. They're very comfortable and long enough for adults.

And to make sure your trip is as luxurious and any five star hotel, we use 600 thread count linens on our beds! You'll love it.

A great location to explore Seattle! Our location is tremendous for both living here and for doing day trips around town. The grocery across the street is truly world class, a great selection of produce, excellent deli, bakery, wines, cheeses. There is a large drugstore above the supermarket. There are restaurants, stores and night spots on every block, all around us. This place is happening! When we bought it we thought, this is perfect for a short term rental.

We do, however, have concerns about noise. There is lots of traffic and several restaurants and bars around us. And there will be people on the street. It's a busy area! We changed the windows in the apartment to noise reducing laminated glass. This has helped tremendously, but we still feel obligated to tell everyone about this. It's a great place and a great location. But there's a trade-off there, since being in the middle of a great neighborhood means there's lots of activity around.

We're perfect for day trips! There is an auto rental agency just two blocks from us. If you want to rent a car to go to Mt. Rainier it's easy to get one for just a day. To explore Seattle you won't need a car where we're located. There are Bus Stops within one block that can take you anywhere, but you really won't need them either. We are perfectly located for walking. The famous and ever popular Pike Street Market is just down the hill, and to get there you walk right past the Washington State Convention Center, past Nordstrom's and Macy's, and the downtown shopping core. The street ends at the Pike Street Market, 17 blocks from the apartment. To the left is the Seattle Art Museum, further down First Avenue is Pioneer Square. To your right is Belltown, another vibrant Seattle neighborhood, filled with clubs, restaurants, and stores. If you continue through Belltown you come to the Seattle Center with the Space Needle and Paul Allen's Experience Music Project. This is all within easy walking distance--except Seattle Center where the Space Needle and EMP are located. For that you walk down to Nordstrom's and from there take the Monorail.

It's called Capitol Hill because it is on a hill, above downtown. When I say it's very easy to walk to downtown, I remember that sometimes I get tired walking back up the hill. That's what the buses are for!

                          The Pike Street Market is just down the hill, and to get there you walk right past the Washington State Convention Center and through the center of the city's shopping district, past Nordstrom's and Macy's, etc, From the Market, you go left to the Seattle Art Museum, further down First Avenue is Pioneer Square, To your right is Belltown, another Seattle neighborhood filled with clubs, and stores, From there, the Seattle Center, where you'll find the Space Needle and the Experimental Music Project (not to be missed!)

                          About: Above is a photo of Johnny our building manager. Johnny will check you in and lives at the building in case you need anything while you stay with us. St. John's is owned by Mark Chambers and Oda Egeland. We live in the country, about an hour from Seattle, and use the short terms apartments as our in-city get away when we come to town. We're both in our mid 50's, have retired from successful careers, love to travel and enjoy the finer things of life. We always stay in VRBO apartments when we travel. It is so much more fun, and typically much cheaper, than staying in hotels. When we began looking for an apartment building we wanted to have several units that we'd use for short term rental, simply because we thought it would be fun. And it has. We've met people from all around the world, and never had one bad experience. It's been great!

                          Why Capitol Hill:
                          We began the search for our apartment building over two years before we found St. John's. We were very particular about the location, because we wanted something that would be extremely convenient for both daily living (like having the grocery store across the street) and also for travelers that want to walk to the convention center or downtown. Plus our neighborhood on Capitol Hill is one of the most up-and-coming areas in the city, full of vibrant life, food, night clubs, shops, galleries, it's all here, right around us.
