Overview

About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Over 1000 square feet of relaxing, well-equipped perfection nestled at the base of the steps leading up to Pike Place Market, across the street from the Seattle waterfront, the Aquarium, and Pier 62. Finished in a décor reminiscent of Seattle’s early days, with red-bricked wall, dark wood floors, and subway-tiled bathroom. Be greeted with a complimentary bottle of wine.

Start the day sipping a fresh cup of French pressed coffee on the terrace while gazing upon Seattle’s waterfront as it comes alive. Take the stairs (or the elevator) up to Pike Place Market, the nation’s oldest continuously operated public farmers’ market, to take in the fascinating commotion of open-air commerce. Sample fresh-baked bread, pastries or piroshky; sample locally produced cheeses; or peruse an unmatched selection of fresh seafood.

This property is family owned and run by my husband and I. Our mission is to redefine your vacation rental experience. Your satisfaction, as our guest, is our goal. Why pay more to stay at an ordinary hotel when you can relax in a central location while enjoying modern comforts and amenities in a slightly nostalgic Old Seattle setting. The local waterfront national chain hotel's rates start at $255/night and parking is also additional.

AMENITIES

Living Room: Open and sunny, with large windows facing south and west, comfortable leather couch and chairs

Kitchen: Modern, with Kitchen Aid stainless appliances, gas oven/stove, refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher, soapstone countertops, large island for entertaining and plenty of cookware and dishware to service 8 people. Full size front loading Washer & Dryer (Detergent & Fabric Softner Provided).

Bedroom: Features a Comfortable King Size Bed, Modern rustic furniture, French doors opening to living room area with Privacy Curtains. Extra pull out Queen size Murphy Cabinet Bed in the Living Room with a comfortable Tempurpedic Mattress.

Bathroom: Early metropolitan subway tile décor, Huge jetted tub with shower, soapstone-covered vanity and Large walk-in closet. The Sink and Toilet area are separate from the Shower/Tub by pocket doors. This makes it easier if you have more than one person getting ready at a time.

Entertainment: 48” flat panel TV on swivel mount, DVD player, Direct Satellite TV, Free WiFi.

Outdoor Features: Comfortable Private Terrace, with Dining table & Chairs, viewing the Water, Seattle Aquarium, The Ferris Wheel and Pier 62!

As of 2016, we now have a Portable AC Vent located in the Living Room for our Portable Air Conditioner. One of the positive points to having the building exterior re-done! (Almost NO Buildings, Less than 5% in Seattle have Central Air Conditioning) So, we are one of the Lucky Ones!

Also be aware that this is an urban environment. In any Urban Core, you can expect to hear street noise, often late into the evening. If a silent outdoor environment is important to you, downtown Seattle (or any big city for that matter) may not be the best place for you to stay. Any questions about this, ask! We want our guests to be happy.

Suitability:

Children welcome

No Pets

No smoking on premises

Parking: (1) private parking space in under-building garage (limited to Compact or Midsize cars only) in a secure parking garage. If you have a Truck or Large SUV, know that it will not fit!

About Property Owner

We have had a personal love for the city of Seattle for over 20 years. We enjoy this waterfront condo not only because of the location and views, but also because of the serenity. This is our in-city retreat to hang out with our Family and Friends, see a Mariners game, watch the Seahawks play, Enjoy great Shopping, Eat wonderful food, Stroll around Pike Street Market or just kick back and Relax!

Property Owner purchased this condo in 2014

Why Property Owner chose Seattle Waterfront

We chose this location to be closer to the water as well as to provide an in-city retreat for our family and friends... This is Our Home Away From Home!

What makes this condo unique

We love to get up in the morning and walk the 80 steps to Pike Place Market and watch the market open for the day! We have been going there for decades and Never get tired of it. I am definitely a frequent customer to the Seattle Antique Market only 1 block away as well. Some of the touches I have added to this condo are from this same market. This location has also been a great starting point for our Seattle Seahawk games as well as our University of Washington games. The Seahawk stadium is 8 blocks away and the shuttle to the University of Washington takes about 20 minutes.

We also love to walk to the Ferry docks (6 blocks) and catch the ferry to Bainbridge Island to spend the day. Where else could you hop a ferry to an island, have a gourmet Northwest dinner and be back in Seattle the same evening? My favorite end to the day is to have a couple pints at Kell's Irish Pub up at the Pike Market's Post alley location. Where else can you imbibe with both locals and Seattle visitors, listen to live Irish music, eat a bowl of Irish stew and sing some lyrics? Nothing better to end the day with!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My best friend and I do a girls trip every year. This was the perfect place to stay! We will be back again this year!!

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time I've stayed here and I will stay here again the next time I'm in Seattle. Its very close to everything downtown and right across the street from the waterfront. Just steps to Pike Place Market. The building has a parking garage but I've never found it necessary to have a car while I'm here. Just get an ORCA card and use public transit. The apartment itself is beautifully decorated and has everything you will need for your stay. The kitchen is equipped to cook whatever you buy at the market. Check in and check out are quick and easy. LOVE THIS PLACE!!!!

Just like home

Overall, very nice place. When the viaduct is torn down, in a few months,the traffic noise will be eliminated and a much more tranquil and enjoyable location. Place has everything you could possibly need, plus a short jaunt to Pike Market is a plus!

My wife and I stayed in Seattle for two weeks after a cruise and had a wonderful time. The condo is in a great location basically on the waterfront. Do be aware that they are renovating the waterfront area over the year or so but none the less you just walk accross the street and are on the waterfront walk. We loved walking from the ferry piers to the sculpture gardens. We did not drive in Seattle but Lyft worked great or taking the water taxi or other public transportation worked fine. The bed was super comfortable and kitchen had all the supplies we needed.

The views from the actual condo are not much with the construction but that really does not matter as you are steps from the waterfront and to the elevator to Pikes Market. We were also able to walk to a game at Safeco Field to see the Mariners play. Unit is as advertised and make for the perfect spot to tour Seattle from.

Absolutely perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

We were absolutely delighted with everything about this VRBO...perfect location, tasteful decor and furnishings, fully stocked kitchen, comfy beds, thoughtful amenities, spot- on-recommendations for restaurants and things to do, and the prompt, pleasant, personal interaction with Jerry, the owner. We could not have asked for a better experience and are so glad we got to stay here... hope to get to visit again!!!

Location

Car: not necessary

Pike Place Market is a flight of stairs away. And for those of us that need the occasional elevator ride... There are two. One at the Parking Garage next door to our building and the other is just on the North end of our building. Seattle Aquarium is across the street.
