We're located in Seattle's most popular neighborhood, Capitol Hill, right in the Pike/Pine corridor, in the midst of lots of shops, restaurants and bars. There's lots of nightlife in our area. We're just 8 blocks walking distance to the Washington State Convention Center and just a few more to the middle of downtown Seattle. One of the best things about our location is that we have a large 24-hr grocery store right across the street; nothing could be more convenient.
There are numerous bus stops one block from us and it's easy just to walk downtown. We do have a parking lot behind the building but we're in such a great location a car is more of a hinderance than a convenience.
Please be aware that this is an urban environment. In our neighborhood you can expect to encounter people from all walks of life and hear noise, often late into the evening. If a silent outdoor environment is important to you, this part of Seattle may not be the best place for you to stay. That being said, St. John's is an incredible place to experience the city from, and we have security systems, triple-pane windows to reduce the street noise as well as white noise machines in the bedrooms to make sure you sleep easy.
Guests have private access to the whole apartment unit. There is a shared laundry room on the second floor of the building that has two washers and two dryers, which are quarter operated, a dollar per load. There is a back patio shared among all our guests and tenants available for hanging out in the sunshine and grilling on our gas BBQ.

We do our best to meet and check you in, but depending on your arrival time we may coordinate with you to leave the keys in one of the businesses in our building, so it is important to communicate to us your anticipated arrival time.

A little history:
Mark Chambers and Oda Egeland bought St. John's in January 2005. They had always loved the neighborhood and were enchanted by the bones of the building. Built in 1905, it has an old charm missing in newer buildings. Immediately after purchasing it they went to work, remodeling every apartment, putting in new plumbing and electrical, and making it modern in almost all conveniences (no dishwashers nor elevator). Mark did most of the work himself, with help from Johnny. We now have 8 short term apartments and 14 long term apartments. It's a great building. Sadly, Mark passed away away in 2015. Oda still lives in their house in the country, 30 miles from St. John's. Occasionally though, she will stay in the short term rentals when they are available. Mark always loved staying here, Oda still does and we're sure you'll love it too!
A little bit about me: I grew up in Tucson, Arizona, spent most of my summers with family in eastern Massachusetts, lived in Buenos Aires, Argentina and Vancouver, BC during college, and moved to Seattle in 2014. Soon after moving here Mark and Oda hired me to help Johnny maintain the building. When the former short term rentals manager, Christine, left for graduate school I was lucky enough to get to take over the position! She and I wrote the neighborhood guide in the guest handbook in each unit, so you can also read about some of our favorite spots in there.
