About the property

1906 Queen Anne Duplex, 1,450 Sq Ft With Stunning Views

Online booking and payment, key pad entry, go directly to the apartment, instructions with entry code sent prior to check-in, fully stocked with supplies needed for your stay, just bring your clothes and food.

We purchased this property in June 2016 with the plan to renovate. The ground level apartment is available to rent from July 1st 2016. There is a tenant living above in the second apartment. While awaiting a change in planning permission we have decided to offer guests the opportunity to enjoy some of the most stunning views in Seattle.

South Queen Anne offers some of the best views of the Seattle skyline and is frequently used by many to demonstrate the beautiful view. Enjoy watching the sea planes come into land the ferries dock, relax to the ambient sounds of down town at work.

The single street level apartment is over 1,450 sq ft and has two bedrooms with a king room, and a queen bedroom we have turned an additional space into a bunk room there is additional sleeping for four, with two double sofa beds and queen Aero bed. It has a full kitchen, washer and dryer, and one full bathroom with a shower tub combination.

The apartment offers Wi-Fi and cable TV in a large living room that faces south towards down town Seattle. The property is 1/2 a block to the east of Queen Anne Ave N which offers bus service to down town. There is one off street parking space and many free on street parking options.

A ten minute walk and you arrive at the Space Needle and can walk, bus or car to all of Seattle's tourist spots. It is also ideally situated for business travelers visiting the high tech hub of South Lake Union or down town.

The home itself has many period features typical of the 1906 era. There is some deferred maintenance to the exterior of the property, which will be rectified in 2017 with the renovation. In the mean time, we have priced the apartment below market rate in order to drive occupancy, under the proviso that you are renting a unit that will benefit from enhancements. That said, we have gone to great lengths to improve the immediate situation, by repainting the entire interior of the apartment and fixing many of the minor issues. We are experienced investors with other VRBO units which we have been renting for a number of years, so we are well versed with the needs of guests and do our utmost to meet and exceed them. We hope you enjoy your stay in our newly listed apartment.

Great Stay in Seattle!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this house. Robin was very accommodating and the response time was incredible. We figured out the bus route... the Queen Anne hill is tough!

If we come back to Seattle again, we will try to rent this house again.

Great view!

Excellent location and beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

Would highly recommend this place. In Seattle for a wedding and we were one of a few that had air conditioning. It was a hot weekend and made our stay comfortable and cool. Everything you need is provided. Robin responded quickly to questions. Floor noise from above but nothing that bothered us. Both parties were respectful of each other. Great location and if you like to walk you can be at Pike Place Market in 30 minutes. Thanks for letting us stay at your home

Great price for location

  • 4 of 5

Location location! Fantastic view, right amount of kitchen amenities for cooking in. Responsive owners. Nice lay out of house despite being older, can be loud depending on other renters in the house. Very close to public transit, gorgeous neighborhood.
