Overview

About the property

Recently renovated, this one bedroom, one bath apartment is ideally situated with close proximity to downtown, Capitol Hill, Lake Union and the University of Washington. Our fully equipped apartment features a 40' Sony flat screen w/ a full complement of cable channels, stereo w/ plug in for iPod, WiFi, washer & dryer in the unit, hair dryer, iron and ironing board. Hardwood floors in the living areas complement the granite tile floors in the bath. The kitchen sparkles with a new Cesar Stone counter top, glass tile back splash and new cabinets, dishwasher, range, microwave and refrigerator. The sofa and loveseat make relaxing comfortable, while dining or working in the kitchen is deceptively spacious because of the large, 84' wide, mango wood table. The living room includes a pull-out sofa for additional guests. The kitchen seating includes Emeco 111 Navy chairs made from recycled PET. Rest comfortably in the queen sized bed while enjoying the quiet achieved by two complete sets of windows. The original exterior windows were left in place and another complete set of insulated windows were installed inside to insure warmth in the winter and a cool environment in the summer.

About William Graf

I have been working with architects and designers for most of my professional life. This has given me an appreciation for good design. My wife and I have lived in Seattle for more than 30 years and raised three girls We love this city and constantly revel in its beauty. Weather permitting, we enjoy entertaining on our 1956 Chris Craft.

William Graf purchased this apartment in 1991

Why William Graf chose Seattle

We have always thought the Eastlake area (the east side of Lake Union) was desirable because it had close proximity to downtown, the lake and the University of Washington. We have owned this building for over 20 years and are now offering this unit for a short term rental. We think the location is outstanding and should provide travelers an excellent base for exploring.

What makes this apartment unique

I have lived on a couple of houseboats in Seattle. The location of this apartment is a few blocks from that community. I enjoyed walking the docks and sitting on the waterfront, enjoying the activity on the lake. It is a truly unique experience, not approached anywhere else in the United States, possibly the world.

Very comfortable and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here semi-long term during my winter break from work, and it was the most comfortable home away from home I could have hoped for. The kitchen was for the most very well stocked, the entire place very clean and modern.

Cozy and Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay and hope to return. The owner is very responsive. The internet was spotty. I told the owner and he replaced the equipment within a few hours and it was blazing fast! The apartment is clean and tastefully decorated. We cooked several meals. The kitchen has high end cookware and appliances. We also enjoyed several restaurants near by and loved that we could walk to them. This unit doesn't have an assigned parking spot but does have a permit for street parking. It wasn't hard to find street parking but was tricky for me to parallel park.

Don't hesitate if you have the opportunity to stay at this condo. Nicely decorated, nicely appointed, convenient location. Lovely all around... Having a parking pass is a big bonus...

Excellent rental in Eastlake

  • 5 of 5

Everything from communicating with William to the location and condition of the property was faultless. The apartment was well-equipped, clean and high quality. The location was an easy commute to downtown Seattle and University of Washington. Good access both via public transport and vehicle. Small grocery store at the bottom of Lynn Street was adequate for initial supplies. I strongly recommend this property.

Review from Texas

  • 5 of 5

The apartment we stayed in was beautiful, well appointed, and comfortable. The location was perfect since we chose not to rent a car in Seattle. The neighborhood was quite beautiful and safe. A major bus line was 2 blocks away, and we were able to travel downtown and other locations (Ballard Locks, Zoo) very quickly. If we return to Seattle, we will definitely try and stay here again. William Graf was very accommodating and an excellent communicator.

Half way between downtown and the University of Washington, this compact apartment is conveniently located a few blocks away from Lake Union. A delightful afternoon can be spent walking the famous Seattle houseboat docks and/or picnicking in one of the secluded public waterfront parks. Drive, walk or take convenient public transportation to the University of Washington, downtown, South Lake Union, Seattle Center or Pike Place Market.
