This quiet apartment is located on a dead-end street, with easy access to the I-5 freeway. It is close to the University of Washington, walking distance to six restaurants and two coffee shops, and buses (#68, 73, 77, and 373) to downtown and the UW.

It is on the top floor of our house, and has wonderful views of the Cascade Mountains to the east. The family oriented neighborhood is great for walking. There are two parks within a short walk.

About Pete Thorn

We have lived in this house for 27 years, and raised two boys. The boys are adults and we have this large house which we'd love to share. We put on a new roof, and built the apartment in 2010. We like all things outdoors, hiking, birding, the ocean and mountains. We have 5 fruit trees, and a large garden.

Pete Thorn purchased this house in 1986

Why Pete Thorn chose Seattle

We love this neighborhood and have lived in this house for 27 years, and the house across the street for another five years. This location makes for easy driving access to many Seattle highlights. In addition, there are good restaurants and coffee shops within a ten minute walk. This neighborhood has one the the best video rental shops in town.

We were very happy with the apartment and the hosts.

  • 5 of 5

The property was as advertised, was very clean and very well stocked with not only the essentials, but also with many very nice amenities. We would definitely recommend this place as a good choice for future visits to the North Seattle area.

Fabulous Neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

I was a little hesitant to stay here because the picture of the outside didn't look very nice. I was thinking it was going to be in a "rough" neighborhood. But the price was right and I was struggling to find an available place during the U of W graduation so I booked it and thankfully I ended up being wrong! It turned out to be a delightful neighborhood that I loved to take my morning walks in.

There were six of us all together and there was plenty of room for all of us! The pictures don't show how spacious the space actually is. My daughter & I took the bedroom and the bed (which was very cozy and comfortable) and my 4 sons all had a comfortable space to sleep too. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the bedroom was bigger then it looked along with the kitchen area which was so sunny and welcoming.

The apartment was complete with everything we needed to make our breakfast and coffee too if we chose. But we opted to walk for coffee as there were two shops within walking distance. It is a great neighborhood to walk in. It's at the bottom of a hill but I considered that an additional perk to my morning walk.

I highly recommend this space and Pete and Rose were delightful hosts. I would rent this space fact I loved the neighborhood so much I would love to move to the area! :)

nice space

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (husband, 2 kids - ages 1 & 2.5) enjoyed our stay at Pete and Rose's apartment. It was well appointed, pretty roomy, and well-appointed. Pete was very helpful in giving us some bike-route pointers and getting onto the internet. There was a fantastic playground just a few blocks away, as well! It was quiet at night and centrally located (most of our activities surrounded the UW & north).

Quiet Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here while in town for a wedding and it was perfect for us. Very clean and comfortable and such a nice, quiet retreat from the busy Seattle streets. There were some nice little coffee shops and such within walking distance and a nice park for walks/runs too. The Northgate Transit Center was nearby and made getting around easy using public transportation. The owners were easy to work with and very helpful. We would stay here again if in the area!

Perfect little nest in the trees!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here. It felt like sleeping in a tree house the views from the kitchen and bedroom were lovely. Seattle is such a busy city with so much to do and having a cozy, spacious, clean space to regroup was essential to our sanity on this trip. The house was plenty big for our family of 5 and kid safe for our 4 year old. The kitchen was cute and well-equipped and there was way more space than the pictures and description suggested. The street was quite thought the airplane traffic overhead was a little intense. The hosts were friendly and available and responded to our questions about supermarkets and public transportation right away prior to the trip. There was a Market of Choice and a Whole Foods both within 5 minutes drive of the apartment which was very handy. There were a lot of cute restaurants and shops around the area that we didn't have time to explore but the quick access to I5 and the drive downtown were very convenient.
