The Nest is a charming two bedroom apartment close to everything the city has to offer. It has a wonderful view, beautiful yet cozy decor, and boasts a walk factor of 98. Come stay for a few days or a few weeks, and leave the car behind!
The Nest is a charming apartment located in the Elektra Condominiums, right on the cusp of Downtown, Capitol Hill, and First Hill. Up on the eleventh floor, it looks westward over the city and down on the convention center. Nestled at the top of the trees, the afternoon light fills it with a bright warmth as the sun traverses the sky.
The Elektra was built in 1947, but the apartment had a "green" remodel in 2011. The original oak parquet floors were redone, and salvaged old growth Douglas Fir trim was added. New no-VOC paint compliments the newly tiled kitchen and bathroom. The total effect is stunning.
The Nest is the perfect place for anyone who craves a healthy, green living environment. We clean with eco-friendly, scent-free cleaners, and there are plants in every room. Rest assured you can breathe easily if you are chemically sensitive or just desire a healthy place to lay your head.
Just steps from the Washington State Convention Center and a few blocks from the heart of downtown, the Nest is situated near Seattle's many cultural amenities. Just a stroll away, you will find The Paramount Theater, Act Theatre, Town Hall, Starbucks Reserve Roastery and Tasting room, and countless other cafes and eateries. Enjoy the Capitol Hill nightlife and all that Broadway has to offer. Even without a car, every part of the city and metropolitan area is easily accessible. Link Light Rail is a couple of blocks away, as is the extensive Metro bus lines. The apartment comes with a parking spot, so no need to worry about downtown parking, but once you arrive, you can leave it there for the duration of your stay!
All of the comforts of home are here to make your stay relaxing - and even romantic! After a soak in the beautifully tiled tub, step out onto the warm, heated tile floor. The master bedroom has two extra wide, extra long twin beds, which can be pushed together to form a large king bed if desired. There is a memory foam topper that makes the line between the mattresses disappear, so it is quite comfortable. Gaze out across the city to Lake Union from the bed, and you might never want to get up! The second bedroom has a queen sized bed, and visitors love the opening in the wall that connects the living space with the bedroom. This portal allows for panoramic views of the city and trees; close the wooden shutters to create privacy if desired. All the cozy beds have soft sheets with high thread-counts, and luxurious down comforters. For larger groups, we offer two tri-fold memory foam mattresses, a queen and a twin, that can be set up on the floor of the living room.
Come stay for pleasure or business. Either way, you will be equipped with a lovely antique desk, wireless internet service, cable TV, and a brand new 40" flat screen HDTV.
Make yourself at home at The Nest, and experience its natural beauty and exquisite location... in the heart of the city! I look forward to hosting you soon...

Hello fellow travelers and guests!
I love to adventure, meet people, create beautiful spaces, and share my home with guests. I live on Vashon Island, but have a cute little "pied a terre" in Seattle; The Nest in the Heart of the City. Recently, I've also started renting my families longtime country home in Cornish, NH.
I'm a sign language interpreter by profession, and love what I do. When I'm not doing that, I'm usually on Vashon Island, working on my house there, or off exploring the outdoors; skiing, hiking, or biking. I love to travel, and want to try out Airbnb all over the planet!
I love to interact with people, so feel free to ask me anything about myself, and tell me a bit about you!
