Cozy And Quiet One-bedroom Condo

Property type condo


About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2

This is a very clean and cozy large one-bedroom condo located on the top (third) floor with large windows protected by trees and a quiet street. One block away from many bus lines connecting you conveniently to downtown, Amazon campus and U of Washington. There is a big balcony with many plants and a bird feeders and you can enjoy the company of hummingbirds and other bird species. The place has a piano and is perfect for a couple (not so much for small children though) because it has a big bed. Additional sleeping places are in the living room but a third guest will come with an extra cost. There is a designated parking spot and lots of street parking.

I have a no-shoes policy inside the condo and hope that my guests will respect it. There is no TV, dishwasher or washer/dryer inside the condo because the building has a laundry room with coins. The area outside has a lot of restaurants (Italian, Vietnamese, Mexican, American, 2 Thai, Japanese and Mediterranean). In summer, there is a Farmers' Market every Thursday afternoon 3 minutes away and it's a good place to visit.

About Mariana Markova

I am an anthropologist. I speak 3 languages (2 are my native - Russian and Bulgarian) and my English is close-to-native. I am modestly well-traveled. Love reading, independent film, theater, and modern art. Don't watch TV and don't have it but I play a piano and guitar.

Mariana Markova purchased this condo in 2013

Why Mariana Markova chose Victory Heights

I have a very beautiful view from my windows and a bird feeder that brings many local birds. It's very amusing to watch them.

I don't drive (never even wanted) so I chose a place that's well connected by buses to the university and downtown.

It is also not far from a lake and a bicycle trail that runs along the huge Lake of Washington. I have never dared do the loop but I may one day.

What makes this condo unique

Meeting local hummingbirds. Walking distance (15-20 min) to Birk-Guilman trail surrounding lake Washington. Enjoying my collection of dolls and bells from around the world.

Amazing Hostess & Convenient Location!

  • 5 of 5

Mariana was warm and welcoming from our first interaction to our last! She truly made us feel at home and was flexible with our schedule on both check-in, as well as, check-out. She even went shopping to make sure we had breakfast supplies while we were there, which was above and beyond what we expected. We would absolutely stay here again and truly appreciate Mariana's hospitality.

Handy, clean place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this VRBO was nice. We felt quite comfortable and Mariana was very welcoming. I even played the piano...which I haven't done in years...hopefully the neighbors didn't mind. It would have been nice to have a place for our folded clothing, but the floor worked okay - truly a very minimal inconvenience. We will look to stay here again on another Seattle visit. Thank you Mariana!

Exceptional value for the money!

  • 4 of 5

Overall, a great experience. Owner was very accommodating & helpful. Condo had plenty of room for 2 people. Lots of food nearby (dining & stores). Short drive to downtown attractions. Bed was a little rough on the back.

It was a nice apartment with everything you need!

  • 3 of 5

It is located great for people who want to explore the Seattle area. The bed is not the comfiest, and the building seemed very old. It had an unique smell - however my boyfriend and I had a great time! I

Quiet and in a great location

  • 5 of 5

With the trees right outside the window, it's a very tranquil setting, yet restaurants and stores are just around the corner. The covered patio is lovely and the blue jay who visits each morning is a delight.
