As its name suggests, this neighborhood is located on the east side of Lake Union between the lake and I-5. This neighborhood is small geographically, but has a high concentration of rental units. Its central location and reputation as a low-key neighborhood makes it a popular area. North of South Lake Union and northwest of Capitol Hill, it has rental properties in this area that range from older, vintage apartment buildings to mid-century properties to newer apartment and condominium buildings.
Because the hill slopes from I-5 down to the lake, many available units and condos offer spectacular views to the west. Higher up the hill toward I-5, the better the view but highway noise can be a factor to consider as you reach the eastern most part of the neighborhood. On Eastlake Avenue you will find numerous restaurants, shops and local hangouts; most properties in Eastlake are a short walk to Eastlake Avenue.
Also available in Eastlake is single-family homes and townhomes for rent. The Eastlake neighborhood is also one of the few areas in Seattle where you can rent a houseboat. Houseboat rentals are relatively scarce and are typically expensive.
