What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Lake Union Seattle

It is very walkable and there are great restaurants nearby. I have a great view. I really like the restaurant The Whale Wins as well as Fiasco and Pablo y Pablo.

I live near an awesome park called Greenlake where all of the community congregates. We have multiple weekly farmers markets near by. Very walkable community close to shops and with easy transport links to city center.

Nothing. Everything is perfect. This area needs no improvements the neighborhood is lit. This neighborhood is safe.

Amazing views of the sound and city. Quiet and walkable. I like the community trails and parks and sports courts.

All About

Living in Seattle, WA

Your Lake Union apartment for rent rests in a bustling Seattle neighborhood in between Lake Union, Puget Sound and Salmon Bay. Your community forms a grid-like pattern of horizontal and vertical streets that are periodically broken up by a public park or golf course.

Getting from one destination to another will be an easy task with the public transit system that runs throughout your neighborhood at affordable prices. Getting your little ones to school will also not be a problem with Coe Elementary School and the McClure Middle School just a stone's throw away.

To get some exercise you and your kids can take a dip in the Queen Anne Pool on 1st Avenue or you can sign up for a class at Hauteyoga, which is right down the street. If you want to soak up the sun and play a game of catch, head to Queen Anne Playfield or the nearby Thomas C. Wales Park. Kinnear Park is the ideal spot to enjoy a nature walk on those seasonable Seattle weekends. The trees' canopy can provide you with adequate shade as you venture down paths, while also affording you a great view of Puget Sound - a massive body of water that, with its myriad boats and ferries, is always teeming with activity.

If you and your significant other want to spend a night out, there are plenty of local hotspots you can grab a drink at. For a refined atmosphere you may want to go Betty Restaurant and Bar and try out one of their renowned cocktails, or for a more relaxed environment, Paragon Restaurant and Bar has a warm and welcoming environment.
