About the property

1 Bedroom Condo Close To University (tax included in rate)

Taxes now included in nightly rate!

Beautiful sunlit 1 bedroom condo in classic 1920s brick building on the edge of the University District. Tucked away from the hubbub of University life, but only 10 minute walk to Campus center and the UW medical center. Loads of restaurants, coffee shops and movie theaters within walking distance. Minutes from the Burke Gilman trail for quick rides to the University Village, Wallingford, Fremont and Ballard. Easy bus ride to Capital Hill and Downtown.

Warm and cozy space with lots of SW light, modern fully equipped kitchen with gas stove. A great space to cook in and entertain dinner guests. Super comfy double bed in main bedroom and pull-out sofa bed in living room that has an inflatable pillow-top mattress (unbelievably comfortable).

Free WiFi. Basic amenities in bath and kitchen including iron. Huge closet.

While we welcome children, we do not accept toddlers as our unit has not been childproofed with socket protectors and there is glass cabinetry at floor level.

Check out is at 11am; check in at 3pm. We can be flexible on these times if there is a day or more in-between bookings.

From October thru May we are willing to take longer term rentals. If you are interested in one month or more, please contact me to negotiate the rate.

About Betsy Power

I am originally from the east coast, but moved to Seattle many years ago to go to UW for graduate school. I now run a gourmet food import company in Seattle (which is why you will find delicious olive oil in my cabinet - please use!). The Novell condo was my home for the last 9 years and I have imprinted it with character. It is cozy and warm and is decorated with photography from my travels in Nepal and Latin America.

Betsy Power purchased this condo in 2007

Great, though if you are staying for a few days, looking for parking gets really tedious.

Great stay in Seattle

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful apartment near UW. All was comfortable, and had everything we needed for cooking simple meals. Lora was accessible and responsive, though we didn't need anything once we had arrived.

Enjoyed our weeklong stay in this apartment.

  • 5 of 5

We visited Seattle to attend my daughter's graduation from UW and to move her out of her apartment on 7th Ave. The location of this apartment was perfect. It was convenient being close to her apartment and to the UW campus. Our relatives traveled with us and stayed at the Watertown Hotel (half a block away) so they reserved a parking stall for us. The apartment was clean and bright. It was so nice having access to a kitchen. I would definitely stay here again.

Cozy, clean, and heartwarming stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this condo during a week long visit and it surpassed our expectations. The first floor location is convenient and the building it easily accessible with public transportation. The entire building is clean and quiet. The condo is inviting and beautifully decorated with relics of travels and is fully equipped for an easy stay. Everything was spotless and made us feel right at home. The sofa bed is more comfortable than my bed at home and the wifi works great! Overall an extraordinary experience that has drawn me in to loving Seattle even more.
