Craigslist

North Queen Anne

Near Seattle Pacific University and the Ballard Bridge, this cute, 650-square-foot one-bedroom apartment comes with a private garden and balcony for $1,395 a month. It has hardwood floors and a bold paint job, plus views of the Ship Canal. It comes with carport parking, but the 29, 31, and 32 are right outside (and the D Line a 10-to-15-minute walk away). No pets, though.

Craigslist

Bitter Lake

Right on the corner of Bitter Lake Playfield, this two-story, one-bedroom condo is going for $1,400 a month on the dot. The 619-square-foot layout places the bedroom upstairs like a loft, with the open kitchen and living room—and a sliding glass door to the private patio—downstairs. It comes with in-unit laundry and garage parking, and it’s on the 345 route, which turns into the 41. Again, though: No pets.

Craigslist

Victory Heights/Meadowbrook

Up on the north end, there’s a two-bedroom in a midcentury building for $1,395 a month, complete with original green bathtub. It’s pretty spacious at 1,000 square feet, and has hardwood floors, too. An eat-in kitchen has a tall, pass-through window to the living area. It comes with off-street parking, although it’s on the 372 line. And this one allows pets—at least, on a case-by-case basis and with an increased deposit for each one. Tenants share an outdoor gathering area, too.

Craigslist

Alki

Head out to West Seattle for this one-bedroom near the Alki Beach main drag for $1,450 a month, with a balcony, fireplace, and 750 square feet of space. The kitchen is reasonably large, with plenty of cabinet space, and has a breakfast bar that opens to the living room. This one’s pet policy allows cats (“move in right meow!”) but not dogs. It comes with carport parking, but it’s near a variety of bus lines.

Craigslist

Lower Queen Anne/Uptown

Right by Seattle Center, find a vintage one-bedroom apartment for $1,450 a month. Although it’s just 422 square feet, it’s a corner unit with plenty of windows, plus hardwood floors to keep things charming. This one—hooray!—allows both cats and dogs, and has off-street parking available, although it’s centrally located and on bus lines.
