Property type apartment

About the property

Quiet street, close to city center, universities and leisure activities.

Just shy of a 1,000 square feet, the basement apartment was fully renovated completed in May 2015 and complimented with high end furnishings. Includes brand new 65 inch LED 3D TV, full cable package and Wi-Fi.

The location is close to the freeways, nestled between I-5 and 99 both less than a mile in either direction and a five minute walk to Green Lake. Provides the perfect location for the traveler wishing to see the sites of Seattle, visit students at the universities, all less than 2 miles away or travel down town for work or leisure.

The apartment is fully furnished including a Room and Board sectional, World Market dinning room table and plush queen bed and a king sized day bed in the living room. We have fully stocked the kitchen with all the amenities you could wish for your stay, including coffee, tea, spices and cooking necessities. A crock pot, coffee maker, kettle, waffle maker, spice rack, griddle, pots and pans are included. There are amble towels and bedding supplied, so all you need to bring are your clothes and food. We have added games, and toys and access to Netfix.

We live upstairs, so you may see us from time to time. Feel free to knock on our door if you need anything. However, we do try to stay as quiet as possible in the evening and early in the morning when we have guests. Our main floor (kitchen and living area) is between our bedrooms and the basement apartment.

The apartment is in the perfect spot for the vacationer, with easy access to down town Seattle 5 miles away either by car or the bus which stops 3 blocks away. This provides easy access to Pike Place Market, the Aquarium, Space Needle, Stadiums, Ferris Wheel as well as some of our favorite restaurants and shops.

Closer to the home, Green Lake is 3 blocks to the north, which features an array of activities, including a park for the children, 9 hole pitch and putt golf course, swimming (indoor and in the lake), walking / running the 3 mile loop, cycling, roller blading, dog park, lawn bowling, soccer, baseball, horseshoes, basketball and a skateboard park and numerous restaurants and bars.

The Woodlawn Park zoo is less than a mile away, the Ballard Locks and Fremont Troll around 2 miles. On hot summer nights time spent at the local beaches either Golden Gardens or Matthews Beach, both are around five miles, or closer to home the north side of Lake Union at Gas works Park is less than 2 miles away.

About Emily Compton

We have a couple of vacation homes that we have been renting out since 2008, as well as frequent travelers, we understand the needs of guests and try our utmost to provide the best possible retreat for your travels. As such we tend to overstock our properties so you will be pleasantly surprised and all you need is your clothes and food.

Emily Compton purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Emily Compton chose Wallingford

We chose this property as it had historical charm and provided excellent leisure activities nearby as well as close proximity to the main roads and the best schools in Seattle. We undertook a back to the studs renovation to upgrade the house to modern standards while still retaining its character from when it was built in 1908.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is very well stocked for all your needs, including spices, towels and bedding. While we think the best things are outside of the home in the wonderful activities that are in Seattle, we have made the apartment as welcome respite from a busy day. This includes Wi-Fi a large 65 inch TV with Netflix and luxurious furnishings and heated tiled floor in the bathroom. No expense was spared to turn the apartment into a large and luxurious space for you to enjoy.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this place.

The basement apartment is new, cleaned, spacious, kitchen fully equipped.

Queen size beds are comfortable. Towels and hair dryer provided.

Ample street parking outside the front of the house.

Noise is minimal the walking from upstairs.

Ceiling heat fan (bedroom) blowing a little louder, but get used to it.

Good location - to University district, Zoo, Aurora ave to Pike market about 11 mins drive.

The owners are friendly. Definitely will return to this place ! :D

Claremont, California

All the comforts of home!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Emily’s apartment was just about perfect. We were in Seattle to visit family that included grandchildren. The apartment even had all the things we needed for small children which was a very nice surprise. The “Tea Party Game” was a hit. The apartment is furnished so comfortably and felt like home each time we returned. Thank you as well for allowing our fur friends to stay. They felt at home too! We took them for several walks around Green Lake which is a beautiful and so close. We enjoyed our stay so much and would stay here again.

Like home, only better...

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time renting a home rather than a hotel, and it was truly a fantastic experience. The location was green, quaint, and lovely, but close enough to drive to everything. The zoo was right around the corner. I absolutely fell in love with the rental and the neighborhood. Communication and check in couldn’t have been smoother or simpler. Honestly, it was the first of a two leg trip and I spent the entire next week wishing we were back in Seattle. We hope to stay again!

Nice, clean and comfortable at a good location

  • 4 of 5

The place is very cozy and clean. It had everything we needed and was a short drive to the Space Needle and the museums. Both beds were comfortable and sheets were nice and clean. The only problem we had was the slow draining sink in the bathroom.
