About Ian Petry

I have owned and lived in the Harrison Modern since 1997. I have a passion for architecture and interior design, you will see this in every aspect of the building. Originally born in New Zealand, I have traveled the world and the US extensively, I believe that Seattle is one of the most beautiful cities on the planet. My back ground is in Tourism Marketing, I worked for the New Zealand Tourism Board in Los Angles for 8 years before moving to Seattle in 1994. I have a love of travel and new experiences - Whenever I away I always stay at vacation apartments, as you get a real feel for the destination you are visiting.

Ian Petry purchased this apartment in 1997

Why Ian Petry chose Capitol Hill

Seattle is a vibrant city full of amazing sights from world class architecture, vibrant arts scene, to spectacular outdoor activities. Capitol Hill, is the perfect location to explore all Seattle and everything the region has to offer. If you are not traveling outside the city you won't need a car, everything is within an easy walk or a short bus ride. Within 3 short blocks of the building are a a number of great restaurants, shops and cafes, 2 supermarkets and 3 wonderful city parks. Capitol Hill is a rich, diverse, neighborhood with multi million mansions and a wonderful farmers market within blocks of each other. One thing I am sure about... You will love the location.

I have done a lot of traveling and believe that Seattle and the Pacific North West is one of the most beautiful, livable, areas in the North America.

What makes this apartment unique

Location, Location, Location...

Capitol Hill is the most convenient neighborhood to downtown Seattle. from our building it is a lovely 15-20 minute walk to downtown.

The building is super stylish, all the apartments are large and individually furnished in keeping with the mid-century contemporary theme. Comfort, convenience, and style are what you will find when you stay at the Harrison Modern.

Happy in Seattle!!

  • 5 of 5
We very much enjoyed staying at the Harrison Modern. We were right in the middle of Capitol Hill and very close to our daughter's condo which made life very easy for everyone. My husband used the wi-fi (maybe a little too much!) with ease. We look forward to our next trip to Seattle.

Attractive, spacious and comfortable

  • 5 of 5
Harrison Modern is one of the most nicest rentals I have stayed at, in Seattle and elsewhere. While it is neither flashy nor fancy, it is very pleasantly and comfortably furnished, very, very clean, and with plenty of space--it is pretty spacious for a one-bedroom apt in that neighborhood, and definitely felt that way (we were a family of three with a small child and it worked perfectly for us). Ian was always prompt and helpful with his responses as well. We would definitely stay again.

Amazing experience. Highly recommended.

  • 5 of 5
We originally tried to get an apartment down the street in the same building of the couple we were vacationing with. I am very glad that didn't work out and we found this apartment. The bed was one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in. Everything we needed was there, but there is also grocery, drug stores, and convenience stores within walking distance.

There was very helpful information as soon as we walked in, like the WiFi password, frequent shopper cards for nearby stores, and directions to nearby amenities. We walked everywhere we could, and used Uber to get to places too far to walk. Transportation was very affordable.

We have been married 16 years and have never been away without our children. When we got to this apartment, we immediately got to live the lives of a young childless couple in a great city and a wonderful, perfect apartment.

We had always gotten hotel rooms for travel, but after this wonderful experience, will always look for an apartment. When we go back to Seattle, we will definitely be booking this apartment again.

We stayed at this property for four days and it could not have been better. The location was perfect. We did not have a car and walked or took the public transportation to all the unique places in Seattle. The apartment is close enough to the hustle bustle of Broadway Street but far enough to feel part of a quiet neighborhood. Though it had one bedroom, which I shared with my husband, the living room had a very comfortable sofa couch for my son. The apartment lacks central air but the fans and open windows provided just the right temperature. There is a lot of light exposure in the morning, a caution for those who like to sleep in. The kitchen is stocked well, as we cooked breakfast in the apartment. The bathroom was a little snug, but accommadating. The property was clean and well-maintained, adequately described in the listing. Overall, for the price, this is a very good apartment. We would stay here again and recommend it to our friends.

Perfectly located for walking about!!

  • 5 of 5
We spent 3 nights at this 1 bedroom Harrison Modern apartment on Capitol Hill and loved every minute. The apartment is one of the nicest VRBOs we have stayed in--exceptionally clean, thoughtfully appointed, comfortable bed and in a locale that is great for conducting your eating, shopping and sight-seeing on foot. The best grocery was QFC on Broadway but the Food Co-op and Trader Joe's are not far either. We hiked to UW to see the "Huskie Clipper," the boat that carried the 1936 crew team to win Olympic Gold! That was probably our highlight of this Seattle trip. The walk to the Botanical Garden & Japanese garden was a wonderful stroll through the MontLake neighborhood admiring the lovely Arts & Crafts architecture. Favorite restaurant was Costal Kitchen on 15th. The apartment is well situated for people watching and the sun setting over the sound from the front porch and although we did not cook meals the kitchen is very well equipped for that. We did appreciate the fine washer and dryer that was available. Although there is no AC, the fans provided gave plenty of ventilation and "sleep sound." I would recommend this apartment for any single or couple--might be a little tight for more than that!

Comfortable Apartment in Great Capital Hill Location

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I very much enjoyed staying in this ground floor one bedroom apartment for four nights in mid-August. The king bedroom was roomy, with plenty of closet room and drawers. We did not prepare any meals, but the kitchen would have been more than adequate if we had wished to do so. With the warm weather we encountered (mid-80s), the apartment did get a little warm; I'd guess that this would only happen a few days a year, and it wouldn't deter us from coming back.

The apartment is very well located. It is three blocks uphill from Broadway and the same distance downhill from 15th St.; both streets have plenty of good restaurants and several supermarkets. Buses for Pike Place Market and the Space Needle (both a very doable 1.4 mile downhill walk) are nearby. We did not have a car, and had no problem getting around town on foot or by taxi.

We definitely recommend the apartment for couples and families with one or two kids.
