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!

This is a charming building, built in 1910, well kept up with period woodwork and classic charm. There are several retail spaces at street level and two floors of apartments above them. The building is on the corner of East Pike Street and Harvard Ave. The Apartment is on the third floor on the Harvard Avenue Side of the building. It has a great view down to Harvard. Across the street is a 24 hour grocery store, great for shopping and also if you just want to people watch! East Pike Street is louder, with traffic and people on the street at all hours, Harvard has much less noise, making the apartment a great place for an extended vacation.

This is a wonderful location to explore the city! It’s just ten blocks to the center of Seattle’s downtown business area, an easy walk. From here Pike Street runs downhill toward the waterfront, through downtown and another 6 blocks to the Pike Place Market. We’re in the neighborhood know as Capitol Hill, with the handy grocery, lots of places to eat, shop and party.

We have a full-time, live-in manager, Johnny Sidorowicz, who takes care of making reservations and checking people in and out. Johnny lives in apartment 200 and if there's every anything you need while you're with us, he's always ready to help.

St. John's Apartments

Year Purchased: 2005

About: Mark Chambers and Oda Egeland own St. John's. We bought the building in 2005 and remodeled all the apartments, combining several to make two bedroom units and changing six into short-term rentals. I (Mark) have been a builder all my life and this was a very fun project. The building has character and that was saved and honored; at the same time new plumbing and new electrical systems were installed, bringing it up to modern standards. The plumbing, for example, has a loop system, so there is always hot water as soon as you turn on the faucet. We're a couple in our 50's and the building is an investment for us, and a lot more. We live in the country but stay in our short terms when we come into town. St. John's is our home in the city! We've made the apartments more than just furnished rooms. We've tried to make everything in each apartment be super comfortable. We think we've done a good job so far and we're still working on it. He hope you'll come stay with us, and look forward to meeting you when you do! -Mark Chambers

Why Downtown, Seattle, WA, USA:
We bought the building here because it was here, and we got lucky finding it. It was just what we wanted. We wanted a mix of businesses from our building and we wanted to be involved with our tenants. We have short term tenants, people on vacation and people on business trips; plus 17 full time residents in the building; plus the retail businesses on the ground floor. We have a diverse mix of tenants and short term guests. It's a great business model and it works well because of our unique location. The street we're on, and the neighborhood, and the businesses around us, make this the perfect location to stay when you're in Seattle!
