About the property

3 Bedroom, 3 Bath, Off-street Parking, A/c For Summer & Fireplace For Winter

Located in Seattle’s University District neighborhood, this newly appointed three bedroom, two story rental features a unique and unsurpassed location and property details in which you surely will delight.


This property is located an ideal distance from the University of Washington and all its sport facilities (just blocks), Downtown Seattle (just moments by car, cab, or bus), and near countless other activities and points of interests. Right on the border between the University District and Ravenna neighborhoods, there are countless restaurants, bars, shops, movie theaters, museums, coffeehouses, and places to participate in outdoor activities mere moments from stepping out the unit's door. A bus stop to take you downtown is but a block away so whether you want to explore by foot or a bit further afield, the apartment is a perfect place to begin and return at day's end.


Rest comfortably and peacefully in one of three delightfully detailed bedrooms. Each bedroom is newly decorated with deluxe queen size mattresses along with queen-size pillows, 100% soft cotton linens, & down comforters, topped with classically beautiful duvets. In each bedroom there are two spa quality robes hanging for your comfort and enjoyment and an alarm clock. The master bedroom has a large walk-in closet. A full sized sofa bed is also available for up to two additional guests with cotton sheets, pillows, and comforter in the living room. In the upper landing a new day bed provides a cozy place to read or spend the night for an additional guest with all the necessary bedding in the drawers below.


The VRBO's fully appointed kitchen includes a Jenn Air four-burner gas range and oven, a fridge & freezer with automatic ice maker and built in water dispenser, a dishwasher, a hands free faucet and sunken chef’s sink. The kitchen also features wooden cabinets, a new microwave, toaster, and coffeemaker with complimentary Starbucks French Roast beans for your enjoyment. Open the cupboards and revealed are all the pots, pans, utensils, dishes, and glassware you could ever need to make yourself at home.


A classic white and pine wood dinner table comfortably seats six with midcentury modern white chairs and Crate & Barrel purple leather head chairs.


All new furnishings adorn the living room. Modern meets grace and comfort as you stretch out or cuddle up on the luxe cushioned black leather couch. A gas fireplace fills the room with warmth and soft light in the evening. Hundreds of channels are available on the 42 inch HDTV - including numerous premium movie channels. If nothing is on TV to your liking, you may choose from the available diverse variety of DVDs & Blu-Rays that are provided for your enjoyment in the living room on the Sony Blu-Ray player or the 100s of movies On Demand through DirectTV. You may also enjoy simply playing a CD or listening to one of the many music channels as you read a book while comfortably seated in a cozy chair, plush blanket over your lap, and feet warmed by the fire.


Each bedroom has its own private bathroom. The bathroom on the main floor has a glass enclosed walk-in shower. The second bathroom upstairs has a two sinks and a full bath. The master bedroom provides every possible comfort with large soaking tub, massive walk-in shower, and a French rustic countertop and touches. Each bathroom provides premium towels, a soft bath mat, hair dryer, complimentary shampoo and conditioner, and body wash.


Ascend to the second floor and a newly appointed game table greets you along with multiple bookshelves adorned with countless reading options. Along the window with a large maple tree as a backdrop you can cuddle up with a book, for a nap, or for the night in a lovely white day bed — all the additional bedding can be found in its built in drawers.

Great place to roost

  • 4 of 5

This house has a great views of the Cascades on clear days! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here during the holidays as it was a great place to gather with other family who live locally. Comfortable, clean, well-equipped and stylish. Great location for lots of different activities around the city.

Very nice, comfortable home with a great location!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice rental with comfy beds and good location. The rental owner, Andrew, responded to our questions very quickly and was very helpful when my husband left his fitbit watch there. He found it for us and shipped it out right away. It was home before we were!! If we ever get out to Seattle again, we will be looking up this rental again. Thank you Andrew, for everything!

2 renter home. Upstairs very nice

  • 4 of 5

Just arrived back in Missouri from our 8 night stay in this home. The location was perfect for everything we wanted to do while staying in Seattle. Nice to have a grocery store nearby and train station also. The home was very spacious for our family of 5. Was a little disappointed because didn't understand prior to renting that we were renting the "top" of the house and there would be renters below us. This meant sharing a washer and dryer with other people and the hardest part for us was "quiet hours" after 10pm. Most of the time we would get home around 9 pm from our daily adventures, shower then sit down to play games. I felt I was constantly telling my kids to be quiet. Glad to have off street parking with house because there was never a spot on the street. Parking is super tight for 2 cars, but works. Had some issues getting into house and then having few supplies but we immediately contacted owner who responded quickly and was very gracious! Would recommend wash cloths in the house, both kitchen and bathrooms. Home was perfect size for our family and very nice!

About Andrew Hughes

I am a Seattle attorney. This area holds a special place in my heart as both a University of Washington alumni and someone who has spent over a decade living and exploring Seattle and the the incredible University District neighborhood. I love the energy and diversity of the people and activities the University District shares with all those who visit. Whether it is shopping and strolling through the University Village or along University Way, having a picnic under the cherry blossoms in the University of Washington campus quad, browsing the Farmer's Market on Saturday mornings, taking a canoe through the arboretum on Lake Washington on a beautiful summer day, or just sitting and relaxing at one of countless local cafes - there is always something to do, to taste, and always another reason to live and stay in the University District. I hope you will join me so that I may share my love for this area, Seattle, and the State of Washington as a whole. Safe travels and I hope to see you soon.

Andrew Hughes purchased this house in 2010

What makes this house unique

I am centrally located and only a few short blocks from the University of Washington Campus and a short bus, car, or cab ride from downtown Seattle. The countless other unique Seattle neighborhoods, each with their own individual identity - including, Fremont, Ballard, Capital Hill, Madison Park, & more - are only a short distance away and are exceptional places to explore and enjoy. Although close to campus and downtown, the property is a peaceful escape from pace of the city. On a clear day you can awake to the sun rising over the Cascade Mountains and Lake Washington from your private deck and when we get an occasional snow in the winter you can behold the same beauty bundled up inside next to the fire. Within minutes of stepping outside your door you can be walking or jogging along the Burke Gilman Trail or enjoy one of our favorite walking loops around Green Lake with a coffee in hand. Wonderful restaurants and cafes are within walkable distance whether you walk east or west. If you choose to stay in for the night our wonderfully appointed property can provide you with everything you could want or need for a relaxing and quiet evening. The property is well-appointed with all new furnishings and incredible amenities. Whether you are visiting Seattle for the first time, in the area for a local event or activity, staying for work, play, or visiting family or friends, I would be honored to share our home with you during your stay in Seattle.
