About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

Spacious 1-bedroom apartment in 1926 craftsman house, central part of Seattle in the Wallingford neighborhood. Established, safe, very quiet, family-friendly and very walk-able neighborhood, where you will be one block away from great restaurants (Burgers, Cafés, Diners, Sushi, Thai, Indian, Italian, Pizza, Turkish, Afghani, Tacos, Fusion, Vegetarian & Northwest cuisine), bars, shopping, grocery stores, movie theaters, parks, bike and walking trails and Lake Union & Green Lake. It is 10-minute drive from downtown, Space Needle and 4 minutes from University of Washington. One block away from the bus-stop, direct busses to downtown (20min), Space Needle (10 min), UW (5 min) and Ballard (5 min).

Private entrance apartment is located in the daylight basement (6 steps up & 9 steps down to get to it), well lit with natural light by four windows in the living area and one window each in the bedroom and bathroom. 800+ sq. ft of living space with open large living area and fully equipped kitchen, bedroom and a .75 bathroom. Furnished to sleep & eat four (queen bed in BR & a futon in LR) with full size washer & dryer. Fully equipped kitchen with electric stove, oven, microwave, dishwasher and fridge. Enough pots & pans, dishes, utensils and silverware to cook and feed 4-8 people.

Walk Score 95, Bike Score 89, Transit Score 53. This area is a walker’s paradise — daily errands do not require a car. It’s convenient to use a bike for most trips. Transit is good, with many nearby public transportation options

Public parking plenty and we can provide guest parking permit upon request to park in restricted areas on our block

About Saleem A

We are a professional couple who like to share our home to out of town visitors. We work in hi-tech industry, live alone, outdoors active. We immensely love to live in the Seattle area and enjoy all the natural beauty it has to offer.

Saleem A purchased this house in 2007

Why Saleem A chose Wallingford

We bought our house because we love to live in the city. We are located in a great location where we never have to drive to go out for grocery shopping, get a cup of coffee, and eat a casual lunch/dinner or for a date night. We can walk to Lake Union or Green Lake for a walk every day and we often even walk four miles to downtown on a nice day.

Classic basement apartment

  • 5 of 5

Nice area of town, comfortable bed, brand new washer/dryer, fully equipped kitchen, tight bathroom but that's not a big problem. Summary: best value I have found in the area so far.

Enjoyed our time in Seattle

  • 4 of 5

The property was as described and is in Wallingford. We had a great nearly 2 week stay. It is perfectly situated near the highway if you're looking to go up or down the state; right across from a grocery; and is a block or two away from a bus stop where you can take public transport to downtown Seattle, Ballard, or anywhere you really want to to go! The owner was even nice enough to offer us a guest parking pass! Only issue we had was when we first arrived there were dozens of flies and some ants in the apartment. We got rid of all the buggers within a few days of arriving and never saw any more.

Owner's Response: Thanks John for the review. Sorry about the issues with insects. We called an exterminator and they traced the flies and ants to a new potted plant that we had put in the apartment. We have taken care of it. Thanks again!

Nice owner

  • 3 of 5

Clean apartment in basement of house. We had a car so location was fine. Only issue was an ant infestation in kitchen. We did not cook there so it was not from us. As long as the owner takes care of that, i would recommend.
