Immaculate 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath Apt. In Popular Queen Anne Close To Downtown
Finding a good place to stay in an unfamiliar city is a challenge. As a fellow world traveler, I have seen the good, the bad and the ugly, and, as a long-time landlord with tenants who remain friends, I've created a place that I would want to stay in if I were in an unfamiliar city.
Safe, quiet, welcoming, tastefully decorated, this is a place not only to put your head at night but to call home while you're here. Enjoy your morning coffee or an evening cocktail in the woodland-like zen garden right outside your window (we do have sunshine sometimes!). Or light a fire at night in the outdoor fire pit in true northwest style.
Even for short stays, the Queen Anne neighborhood can feel like home almost instantly—the corner cafe, a morning yoga class or stunning views of the Puget Sound and the Olympic mountains, all within a few blocks walking distance. In the summer participate in the lively farmer's market where organic food and live music fill every Thursday afternoon. Or, hop on the bus for a short ride to Seattle City Center and the Space Needle, Experience Music Project, Olympic Sculpture Park and more.

As a longtime Seattle resident, I'm happy to help you make the most of your visit to the Northwest.

About Janet Dixon
Though I've traveled the world and take long road trips to visit family, my soul is in the Pacific Northwest. I am orginally from the midwest, Illinois, but after experiencing the northwest during our years in Alaska I knew that I would at some point become a resident of Seattle. That opportunity presented itself in 1990. I purchased a house on Vashon Island which is a short ferry ride from West Seattle. It was the best move I ever made. The house was on the water and I turned it into a bed and breakfast. That was my first experience providing travelers with accommodations and all these years later I am trying it again. As a profession I have managed non-profits and since retirement I have done a variety of interesting things to fill my life. This is one of them. Add more Janet@

Why Janet Dixon chose West Queen Anne
I choose this particular property because of it proximity to all that is Seattle. It is a hop skip and a jump from Seattle Center and downtown. It has a wonderful commercial area one block away as well as offering a very neighborhood feeling.
What makes this Apartment unique
I purchased this property in 1996 because of it location and thought that future renters would find the amenities offered in the neighbor desirable and I was right. I have had no problems renting my spaces over all those years but now I am ready to try something a little different. I am looking forward to this being as much a success.

This place was amazing!
The apartment was everything we needed. Very spacious- plenty of room to stretch out. Very clean and well decorated. Jan greeted us on arrival even though we didn’t get there until 1130pm. We loved the personal touch! She also made it very clear that she was available for questions or if we needed something during our stay. We were a 2 block walk from a 24 hour grocery store, coffee shops, a cupcake shop and plenty of food. The zen garden was lovely in the evenings! Highly recommend for anyone visiting Seattle!
If I ever need a place to stay in the Seattle area, I will not hesitate to stay here! It is in a wonderful location - central to the Seattle area and walking distance to the lovely area of Queen Anne, with its restaurants and shops. Jan is delightful and helpful, nd the apartment is beautifully decorated -- so relaxing and welcoming and homey!! Couldn't think of a nicer place to stay!!
I totally enjoyed this mother and daughter as guests. They found the space very satisfactory and close to everything they wanted. The daughter who was graduating from Seattle Pacific University, 10 minutes from my place, knew the neighborhood and what it had to offer. Hope to see them again.
Peaceful haven in lovely neighborhood.
Comfortable, cozy — just perfect for a college visit trip. Jan was super helpful. Convenient to downtown Seattle and UW while also walkable to restaurants, groceries, coffee shops and a great park for watching the sunset with panoramic views of the city. Loved this place!
Lovely location in the heart of Queen Anne.
Very comfortable location.
Very clean, perfect hostess, adorable location.
Hostess very welcoming. The location is great, close to restaurant and coffee shops.
Cozy, roomy, convenient, clean, delightful!
A bit of little know information is that Seattle was build on seven hills. Queen Anne is one of those hills and it is the closest residential area to Seattle Center and the City Center which includes the famous Pike Place Market.
Queen Anne is a historic neighborhood studded with cute cottages and gardens, flanked by stunning views of the Olympic Mountains and filled with specialty shops, international cuisine, access to yoga classes, great coffee shops and the beauty of it all is they are only one block away. Within .5 of a mile you are able to see Puget Sound from the famous Highland Drive overhang where the entire skyline of the city can be seen with the majestic Mt. Rainer in the background.
From Queen Ann you have access by car to funky Freemont and Ballard neighborhoods as well as Greenwood and Green Lake. On the east side of the hill is Lake Union where you can rent kayaks and explore the floating homes (remember Sleepless in Seattle), stop and have lunch at the lake side restaurants or even hop on a sea plane and have an aerial view of the the surrounding area.
Seattle Center is not just the Space Needle although it is a must see. You can go to the opera, ballet, the Pacific Science Center, the butterfly exhibit, the children's museum, live theater at the Rep, catch the monorail to downtown and have a wonderful time at the EMP (Experience Music Project). You will be awed by Frank Gerhy's architectural design of the building and by it's exhibits which are dedicated to the exploration of popular music,(Nirvana), science fiction and pop culture.
