About this listing

Taking off for the weekend and looking for one our two mature, responsible, and quiet guests with positive reviews for a low-impact stay in my beautiful studio apartment. Please read the full description below, thanks!

The space

Welcome to my home! It is the best studio in the building at the best location in the neighborhood--in the center of Capitol Hill. It has great old-world charm with its beautiful hardwood, marble and mosaic tile flooring and radiator heating. Full kitchen (with dishes) and bath (with 2 sets of towels, soap, shampoo, and a hair dryer) and a walk-in closet large enough to be a tiny bedroom.

I'm just listing my place for the weekend while I'm out of town. If you have any questions I'm sure I have the answers provided in one of the categories below! Either way PLEASE read the full posting before you make your reservation.

Check in and check out times are listed as "flexible" however this means I will need you to tell me your precise and preferred check in and check out times (exact hour am or pm). Flight/train arrival and departure times work too.

My window has a view over the top of a bar called the Highline. Live music there usually ranges from post-rock to death metal to karaoke, so it gets loud some days after 10pm--particularly on weekends. However, if you're at all like me, you're out late on the weekends and otherwise you're so accustomed to city life that you sleep right through it all. If a lot of city noise is a problem for you I recommend finding a quieter place.

There are on-site coin and card operated washers and dryers, but if you want to save a bit on drying costs you may use my clothesline.

100 Mbps internet with wireless access, a 42-inch flat screen TV with basic cable (upon request) and stereo sound. HDMI and VGA cables to connect your laptop.
(note: I keep the cable box stored away, let me know if you want me to set it up ahead of time)

As you might be able to tell in the photos I have a little bit of liquor and mixers set up at the moment. I might just store it off site to keep things simple or if you think you'd like to mix a drink or two while you're here, let me know and we can work out some sort of arrangement.

Interaction with guests

Little to none. The only reason would be for emergencies. I do also share my internet connection with three other residents, so in the rare event they report an internet outage, I may send a text to inquire about it. All that being said, if you have any questions or concerns during your stay, do not hesitate to contact me at any time.

All the usual rules apply.
1. Don't trash the place, damage or steal anything. If you break it, you buy it.

2. No smoking tobacco, no illegal drugs, no weapons.

3. Marijuana is legal here (for private indoor use). I don't mind if you have a small amount, just don't turn my place into a grow-op / pot-den.

5. No parties.

6. Please clean any dishes you use during your stay. No soap on cast iron and no harsh scrubbing of knives please.

7. To reduce dirt, scratches, scuffs, and dents in the hardwood floors please do not wear shoes around the apartment and do not place hard luggage on the floor.

Tom was an awesome host! He was very responsive prior to and during our stay. He also left specially made recommendations for things to do any his wifi passwords. Tom's apartment had a great vibe and he even let us play his records! We were able to walk to all the best sites in Seattle from his apartment (I didn't use any of the change I brought for the bus!) and he is blocks away from some really great bars, restaurants, and across the street from a park! Would defiantly stay here again!

Toms apartment was great and in a great location. Just down the streets from all the night life Capital Hill had to offer. I never got to meet Tom because of schedule differences but he was an amazing host and easy to contact if needed. I would totally recommend the place. Not expensive but it had a killer view regardless.

Response from Tom:
Unfortunately, I came down with the flu only a day before and thought it best for both my and David's health for me to cancel the reservation and stay home and rest.

We had a really nice stay with Tom in Seattle. Tom had a very hectic period leading up to our stay but upon request made some extra effort to get the flat ready early for us! His flat is in a good area, a 20 minute walk downtown and a short bus ride back up the hill which stops outside his house. Tom communicates well and has some good recommendations for the area if you need any. The place is clean and lovely decorated. As previously mentioned, an early night at the weekend could be a bit hard because of the music of the heavy metal club next door, but this stops at about 23.00 and there is no further noise after that. If you are like us and out at the weekends then this isnt a problem.

Tom's apartment is amazing! I stayed here over the weekend, from Friday night to noon on Sunday, with my brother and another friend. The apartment is very clean and in a choice location - we walked everywhere the whole weekend. We also brought a yoga mat and extra blankets, and Tom actually had a lot of extra blankets and an extra pillow for us in his living room as well. We appreciated how responsive Tom was on text. He actually was not able to meet us when we first arrived around 9:30pm on Friday night, but he had given his keys and the parking pass to a neighbor, who very kindly came back from an event to greet us. Tom also did need to come back on Saturday evening to grab some things, but he made sure to text beforehand to make sure it was alright. Overall, our stay was very enjoyable! Would definitely recommend Tom's apartment to anybody else! Thanks again, Tom!

Just another 30-something goofball living on Capitol Hill. I'm a writer and historian who occasionally builds with legos, takes a few pictures, and enjoys a good drink in good company from time to time.
