Delridge

Just off the West Seattle Bridge, this three-bedroom townhouse has an offbeat layout and a yard with gardening space for $2,695 a month. 1,390 square feet includes abundant bathrooms—two and a half include one off the master—and a utility room with laundry. Extra details include a gas fireplace and ornamented window frames. It comes with an attached garage and a parking pad, but it’s right on the 120 (about to become BRT!) and the 125. Pets can come on a case-by-case basis.

Central District

Just east of Capitol Hill and adjacent to Madison Park, this three-bedroom in a triplex carved from a 1902 house rents for $2,750 a month. Despite the home’s vintage, the exterior remodel and the apartment itself are both pretty modern—the place has vinyl plank floors and subway tile—with an open layout and shiny amenities. 989 square feet manages to fit in decently sized bedrooms thanks to a relatively compact living room, although that spills out onto a large, private balcony. Pets can come, and it’s right on the 11 line.

Magnolia

Just a couple of blocks from Discovery Park, this two-bedroom midcentury home has hardwood floors, a fireplace, one and a half bathrooms, and a backyard for an even $2,700 a month, cable TV and internet included. It’s spacious, at 1,400 square feet, and it’s close to a commercial drag with a grocery store and a 24 stop (not guaranteed in Magnolia). It comes with car parking and has its own in-unit laundry, too. Cats are welcome.

Alki

A block from the coast in West Seattle, this townhouse with a kooky outdoor spiral staircase rents for $2,700 a month on the dot. It’s small for a three-bedroom, one-and-a-half-bathroom home, at just 870 square feet, but it has extra space outdoors, including a yard, a balcony, and a roof deck. No word on pets, but it comes with its own stacked washer and dryer and an attached garage (it’s right by transit lines and a bike path, too).

Mount Baker

Also a block from the coast—this time, the Lake Washington coast—this two-bedroom ADU rents for $2,750 a month, including a yard. It’s definitely a basement apartment, but it’s so close to the water that it has views from the French doors in the back. Pets are okay on a case-by-case basis, but regardless, there can be only one, and pet rent’s a little steep ($75 a month). 950 square feet includes a laundry room, too. The 27 runs along this stretch (and the 14’s not too far), or it’s a half-hour walk to the light rail. Bonus: It has AC.
