The Cairns

Welcome to the Cairns. Comfortable Living for a Balanced Life - The Cairns Seattle Apartments

Tucked in the lively epicenter of South Lake Union, The Cairns Seattle apartments is one of the most energetic neighborhoods in Seattle, you’ll be immersed in culture. But the best might be just downstairs next to our building. On the ground floor of the building, you'll find Caffe Torino to start your day with a delicious cup of coffee and pastry. You can also spend the evening at Feierabend, the German-style pub (featuring a menu full of bratwurst and schnitzel, and 18 German beers on tap - prost!).

Take in stunning views of the Seattle skyline from our roof deck or the huge windows in your apartment. We're just minutes away from the Seattle Center, home of the Space Needle, Science Center, and various venues for concerts, theater productions, and sporting events. Live in the center of a culture-rich playground at The Cairns!

Whether you’re interested in a short-term lease or an extended stay, we make it easy for you. Welcome to the Cairns in Seattle.
