About the property

2 BR, 1 Bath, spacious Living Room/Kitchen - central between Seattle & Bellevue

Come & enjoy our spacious, well-lit and quiet 2BR apartment on beautiful Mercer Island with mid-century modern details, featuring a floating corner fireplace. It comfortably sleeps 4 and is just 15 minutes away from both Seattle & Bellevue. Enjoy a newly remodeled Kitchen & direct access to a private Garden Terrace.

There is truly no other rental like this available on Mercer Island. Enjoy the open, airy vibe of this spacious apartment, while enjoying western-facing sunsets filtered through a tree lined garden terrace.

Guest Access

Guests will have access to the entire 2BR Lower Level apartment, including a newly remodeled Kitchen, dedicated Laundry Room and Garden Terrace.

Interaction with Guests

My daughter and I live on the Upper Level of this home full-time. It's my hope to greet you upon arrival, offering suggestions of must-see sites and attractions, if desired. Otherwise, I will leave you to enjoy the lovely Lower Level apartment in peace, and of course available if any questions arise.

The Neighborhood

I'm smitten with the charms of Mercer Island (affectionately known as 'The Rock' by the locals), particularly it's South-end. This desirable, family-oriented community boasts one of the best school districts in the region. Though not many tourists pass through, it's a gem located in the middle of Lake Washington and a short 15 minute drive to either Seattle or Bellevue. Within walking distance, you'd enjoy Pioneer Park, Starbucks, QFC, restaurants, playgrounds, the Saddle Club, the Country Club and much, much more...

Getting around

Within a 5 minute walk there is a bus stop that services the length of Mercer Island. From the North-end park & ride, there are several buses that can whisk you to Seattle, Bellevue or Redmond. If driving, it’s worth noting that Mercer Island residents are allowed to use the HOV lane on and off the Island, even with only one occupant. This apartment is perfect for traveling nurses, or anyone looking for a quiet place to recover while in treatment at Fred Hutchinson, Swedish, Children’s, Virginia Mason, Group Health, Overlake & the UW Medical Center.

Other Things to Note

I welcome small pets, though please note that my yard is not fully fenced in.

About Suzanne Zahr

I'm an Architect, originally from NY, but now living and working in Seattle, WA. I absolutely love to travel and immerse myself in local cultures through art, architecture, music, and of course, lively conversations! I also greatly enjoy cooking and learning more about celebrated dishes from place to place.

Suzanne Zahr purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Suzanne Zahr chose Puget Sound North

This home has a lot to offer. Above all else, it's a comfortable retreat nestled in the wooded heart of the South-end of Mercer Island. The community here is wonderful - very safe, friendly & welcoming. Located in Lake Washington, you have easy access to the city sites, natural beauty and cultural experiences of both Seattle & Bellevue.

Thanks for a great stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family found refuge here during the last couple weeks of our home remodel. Loved the quiet location, it's so close to the grocery & drug store. Suzanne was a lovely and warm hostess - such a pleasure, responding to any requests right away! We had everything we needed, use of washer & dryer, a fully stocked kitchen and very cozy beds. Our kids made themselves at home right away!

Stylishly appointed, private and stocked with all the necessities.

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay with our 3 young children. The home had everything I needed and more. The decor was clean and stylish and the home was spacious. There were plenty of fresh bathroom and kitchen towels (important when traveling with kids), the closets were stocked with hangers and clothing organizers, and the laundry and kitchen had all the necessary items to make you feel right at home. Suzanne provided extras to make us feel welcome, such as a container of sidewalk chalk for the kids, magazines, and a box of cereal. Having full use of the backyard was also a bonus. The kids loved the hanging rattan chair and twinkle lights. Suzanne made her self available to us, but did not impose. We loved the location near Pioneer Park and close to coffee, pizza, and a grocery. It was a short scenic drive to the freeway, from which we could be in Seattle, Bellevue, or Issaquah very quickly. We really enjoyed our accommodations and would definitely return in the future.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We were visiting relatives on Mercer Island and this was a wonderful place to stay. It was very roomy and pleasant. The beds were comfortable, there was coffee provided for the coffee pot in the kitchen, and it was nice having access to a washer and dryer over our stay. It was quiet and only a short distance from a grocery store and a park. The patio was nice. It gave us easy access to our family and Seattle. We really enjoyed staying there.

This is a terrific apartment for someone visiting Seattle, friends in the area, or in our case just needing a respite from a house remodel. I would definitely recommend this property to others.
