About the property

Welcome to Suite Shagalicious. Live for a time like you?re on the set of Mad Men in 800 square feet of authentic, midcentury modern style, all part of a 1958 custom-built home by Swedish-born designer, Martin Ollas. This spacious, open-concept studio apartment is set to sleep you, and up to 2 others, in total comfort and style.

Proud with pedigree, Suite Shagalicious is a jewel within the showcase home praised for its architectural style and interior design chops, appearing in a full-feature layout for Seattle Times? Pacific NW Magazine.

Punctuated with original art, including impressionistic figure paintings, and furnished with a mix of modern and period designer pieces, The Shag is a skillful blend of the iconic past and all the modern upgrades one would expect in a contemporary boutique vacation rental setting. Well-appointed eat-in kitchen, defined living and sleeping areas, full-service laundry room, private bathroom and shower, and a luxurious, wrap-around, wood-burning fireplace all located on one floor, no stairs. The wonderful advantage of this layout is everything centers on the fireplace and the HD Satellite TV to enjoy from both the bed, and the sofa.

Speaking of comfort, we receive many accolades for our king size, memory foam, Bragada bed. Outfitted with 4 pillows; 2 Pacific Coast down (no goose feathers, here) and 2 memory-foam, this bed is one of luxury rarely available even at high-end hotels.

The additional traveler in your party will enjoy the suites? American Leather Comfort Sleeper, a sofa that opens to a Double bed featuring an exclusive memory foam mattress on a platform foundation. This sleeper is the industry standard, guaranteed to provide a superb nights? sleep without springs. No fear of losing coin flips, here!

Of particular value is the advantage of private outdoor living space that comes as a bonus with the suite rental. The outdoor areas live like that of a full-sized home thanks to the professional talents of landscape architect, Brooks Kolb and Tallar Landscaping & Construction. A gorgeous, well-lit, private entry and serene, modern water feature greet you at the front door. The water feature placement ensures it can be seen from the kitchen and heard through the open window to wonderful effect. The single-light back door opens to a private, all-season, covered cedar porch for magnificent sunset views over the Puget Sound and snow-capped Olympic peaks. The sea air here is remarkable. And beyond the porch lays a gated courtyard for BBQ?s and other private-use enjoyment. Past the gate is a fire bowl for campfire-style entertainment during summer-season?toasted marshmallows, anyone?

There?s no shortage of free, convenient street parking near this property managed by Sea to Sky Rentals. The corner bus provides a 10-minute ride to Downtown, leaving every 20 minutes. Alki Beach and Fauntleroy Ferry are both 7-minute rides. Our location is only blocks to the California Junction and Farmer?s Market. With a walk to Morgan Street Junction shopping, drug store, convenience store, library, golf course, parks and church.

Please note this rental does not allow early check-ins to be arranged.

Owners Message: My husband and I are deeply proud of what we?ve accomplished making this home everything we knew it could be, and more. And since 2005, our honor and privilege is to share it with you. We have found our enthusiasm to do so is felt by all who visit here, and are humbled by those returning to us year after year. No greater emphasis to this point can be made than what has already been expressed by the nearly 100 on-line reviewers who share this view. Please read their comments and make your reservation with confidence. We hope to see you soon!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Here on a work trip where the assumption was I'd stay in one of the big downtown hotels, but saw this place and am so pleased I booked it up instead. My only worry was that travel into the centre would be difficult, but getting in from The Shag is really easy. A bus stop about a 100m away and one simple trip gets you to the centre. Added to which at the Shag you get great views, a very comfortable, well equipped apartment (the Wi-Fi was also useful for keeping in touch) and a perfect base for hiring a car to explore the Seattle area. Highly recommended!

This suite has everything we needed. Bed is extremely comfortable, as is the seating. The place was extremely clean! Convenient to so much. We're coming back in April and hope to be back many times.

Sabrina and James did a great job making the 70’s come to life in their clean and attractive apartment. The location is great for walking, neighborhood pubs, and lovely mountain views. We highly recommend!

A comfy cozy stay

  • 5 of 5

An awesome little suite with all of the necessary amenities. Bed was super comfortable and location was nice and quite. There is even a nice little deck off the back when one finds themselves at this location during warmer temps. A great spot to stay.

November Stay

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful apartment. Our flight was delayed and we arrived to the apartment at 3AM. The lights were on and the place was toasty. We very much appreciated the warmth as we are from Florida. Really, anything you need is here. It was very comfortable and clean. I would highly recommend and stay again.
