About the property

A cozy urban cottage with all the mod cons. Built at the turn of the century behind our house, it has just been fully updated. It has a separate entry from the main house and shares a peaceful garden space. The whole property is non-smoking. It is surprisingly quiet being only blocks from one of Seattle’s liveliest centers, Broadway. It has a full kitchen, sparkling new bath with a huge shower and a new double Murphy bed. The kitchen has all you want to cook up a storm and restaurants are as close as 5 minutes away. You have access to shared internet and washer/dryer.

Public transportation is very close by with the Link light rail station just 7 blocks away and the Broadway streetcar 10 blocks away. Buses are just a block away.

Why The Owner chose Broadway

We feel lucky we were able to purchase this property on Capitol Hill. It is a highly prized area with much to offer to a wide variety of visitors and to those living on "the hill."

Our house was built in 1920. We were told it's division into three apartments, top floor, main floor and basement was done in the late 70's or early 80's. These apartments are occupied by long-term renters who love their neighborhood and all it offers. The Cottage, a studio apartment, separate from the house, was in a sad state. We spent spent our weekends and evenings from May 2016 to November 2016 making it into what we feel is a comfortable, cozy place to stay while enjoying Capitol Hill and Seattle and all it has to offer.

What makes this cottage unique

The wooden structure is unique to the block on which it resides. Most buildings on our block are small, purpose built apartments built in the very early 1900's. There is an ongoing change to the area with old structures being replaced with modern condos. Many old buildings remain due to their historic status giving the area its appealing architecture.

Really cute cottage and in a very vibrant neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect. The cottage was tastefully decorated and within easy walking distance of public transportation.

Volunteer Park was spectacular in the Spring...for those who like to run, there are great running paths through this park.

Looking forward to staying again in this great cottage!

Perfect cottage in quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Joanna’s cottage was a perfect place for a mother/daughter trip to Seattle. We enjoyed our trip and used the cottage as a jumping off place for tons of sightseeing. Energetic walkers will enjoy the scenic stroll downtown, while relaxers can take advantage of the plentiful Lyfts and Ubers in the area. Head east of the cottage to the Nuflours bakery and other cute restaurants on 15th, but the nice grocery on Broadway and fully-equipped kitchen would make cooking fun too.

We appreciated the helpful labels, flannel sheets, fluffy towels, and tea selection in the tidy cottage and would love to stay there again.

Joanna provided great information about the house in advance of our stay and checked back to make sure we were doing OK and didn’t miss our flight home. We could not have asked for a better stay!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great description of the neighborhood and our property. Nuflours Bakery is a place we haven't been on Capitol Hill so we'll be giving it a try soon. Sounds like you two covered a lot of ground on your visit and are great traveling companions.
