About the property

2 Bedrooms/ 1 Bathroom/ 4 Sleeps

Located in Seattle's hip Eastlake neighborhood bordering Capitol Hill, Downtown, Lake Union, a vibrant houseboat community, and the University District, this two-bedroom offers a centrally located home base with thoughtful design, high quality furnishings and modern conveniences -- including air conditioning.

The apartment is small in size, but its open floor plan makes it large in function. The generously sized Crate and Barrel mango wood dining room table flanked by Italian polished chrome side chairs make for a gracious dining experience, easily seating six.

The living room features a Keilhauer sofa, upholstered in a high quality, full-grain leather with complementary mid-century inspired swivel chairs designed by Austrian designers EOOS.

There is a modest balcony with a partial view of Lake Union and the Space Needle.

The apartment features a 51-inch flat screen, HDTV with cable. There are cordless landlines in each room, with free calls to the lower 48 states.

There are two modestly sized bedrooms, one with a queen-sized bed and one with a full, both with memory foam mattresses and 540-thread count Egyptian cotton sheets

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.

Convenient Location

  • 4 of 5

Great location if you plan on visiting/touring Seattle every day; five minutes away! Nice quiet neighborhood and the place itself is spic and span clean! The AC couldn't keep up with the 90 degree heat the first two days, but I hear that is not normal Seattle weather. Would definitely stay there again!

Great place in Seatlle

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is well equipped, furnished, and nice to stay.

We had great time in Seattle including watching the 4th of July fireworks from the near by Lake Union. and the apartment was a very good base for and great place to return to, and have dinner in , occasionally.

We dinned in the neighborhood 'Pomodoro Ristorante Italiano' restaurant, very good as well.

Easy to get into downtown, and to get quickly on Highway..

Note that parking is not guaranteed, but we manged ok.

Amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with a few friends, and it was amazing! At first, I was disappointed not to find a dishwasher, but it turned out it was just hiding. The kitchen was very well set-up, complete with an electric kettle and a large table. The location was great, and it was very close to restaurants that catered to my husband's strict dietary needs. I'd definitely stay here again.
