Car: Recommended

Maple Leaf neighborhood is just north of the University of Washington, University Village and downtown Seattle. Green Lake and Woodland Park Zoo are less than 15 minutes and Northgate mall is less than 5 minutes. The apartment is across from an elementary school with playground and city park. Lake Washington is only 5 minutes by car at Matthews Beach or a few more miles to Sandpoint Park with beautiful beaches and walkways. Bus stops are within a 5 minute walk and it's only a 15 minute bus ride to University of Washington & downtown Seattle at commuter times. Bellevue is a 45 minute commuter only bus ride from the same bus stop. Or drive 5 minute to the Northgate park & ride (P&R) lot and leave your car, jump on a bus downtown or Bellevue/Redmond. University Village also offers high end shopping within 15 minutes. Retail stores include Crate & Barrel, H&M, Anthropologie, Eddie Bauer, Chico's, North Face, Restoration Hardware and Mud Bay pet store and restaurants galore. Local marijuana dispensaries are located within 5 minute drive to studio. Several are within walking distance.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: I'm a mid-westerner who moved to Seattle 26 years ago. I love having the studio and meeting people from all over. I regularly use VRBO myself. I love to hear about your favorite VRBO spot! I love to cook and check out restaurants, so ask us about some local places and am happy to share!

Why the Owner Chose North Seattle, Seattle, WA, USA:
I love the neighborhood of Maple Leaf because it's so close to downtown. I can go out to dinner, see live music in the city and be home in 10 minutes. And it's easy taking the bus to downtown Seattle, UW Campus/Hospital and Bellevue/Redmond. It's quick and easy access to I-5 and Lake City Way, which is one of the few exits allowing drivers to use Express Lanes on I-5 to/from the airport!

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The outside deck is lovely with the bamboo wall and plants offering a private spot to relax and enjoy your holiday or just a quiet evening after a busy conference. I hope visitors enjoy the quiet spot and lovely neighborhood as much as I do! A visitor can really get the feeling of living in a quaint little Seattle neighborhood and commuting to the city by bus every day. It's easy access from the airport by public transportation. You can take the Metro Light Rail train from the airport to the downtown tunnel in 37 minutes, arrive at Westlake station and transfer to the Northbound 72 bus, and be at the studio in another 40 minutes. Cedar Corners is a 15 minute walk from the bus stop, so if you've packed a suitcase with wheels, it's an easy trip. Or just take a cab and pay about $70 or Uber/Lyft for $45. Ask the owner for directions!
