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

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.

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.

FIVE STAR SERVICE AND LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
If it's location that you are looking for then Harrison Modern is a must. It all starts with the best coffee in Seattle located at the end of the street TNT Express coffee hut where coffee is made with love. The food and the bars in the area are fantastic, it's also a short stroll to downtown and all the visitor attractions. The accommodation is comfortable and Ian is a great, and responsive, host. Much better than dealing with an uptight hotel. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

TERRIFIC PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
Absolutely terrific apartment! Well appointed (even down to the grocery store tags, transit maps, tour/city information), great location/neighborhood, and the option for parking is an asset .. one less thing to worry about as much of the street parking around is 2 hr parking. We were there with our 2 sons, 18 and 13, and all 4 of us liked it equally (a tough battle with teenagers). Modern, pleasing décor with attention to detail. Back patio with view of Space Needle another bonus. Grocery store (a great one), restaurants, etc. all within walking distance .. and location very accessible to other parts of the city. Can't go wrong with Harrison Modern! We would definitely stay there again and/or recommend.

PERFECT VACATION APARTMENT

  • 4 of 5
My daughter and I stayed here for a four day mini-vaca at the beginning of March. There was tons of room, very comfortable beds! We loved that we had access to a laundry room and that the laundry powder was provided. The location was excellent. Walk four short blocks up the hill to 15th Ave and tons of shops, restaurants and grocery stores and access to many bus lines to get anywhere in the city. Walk three blocks down the hill to Broadway and the same. We felt very safe in this neighborhood, too.

NICE PLACE

  • 4 of 5
The apartment was clean, comfortable, and centrally located. The apartment was a bit cool and would have been more comfortable with a little more heat. But generally the place was nice and we enjoyed our stay.

WILL DEFINITELY RENT FROM THIS HOME OWNER AGAIN!

  • 5 of 5
I found the apartment to be exactly as described and in fact, pleasantly surprised that the unit was even larger than I'd envisioned. Really superb space for city living! My daughter lives less than a mile away, so the location is ideal for not only being accessible to her but to all the shopping, fab restaurants and outdoor markets we've become so familiar with over the years. I will definitely rent from this owner again and if the unit I rented this time isn't available, I'll happily rent any of the other units in the home. I'm especially looking forward to staying in the unit with that awesome upper deck and fabulous city view! We are a family who likes to cook and the kitchen has EVERYTHING we need. Friends/family (Seattle residents) who visited us, all said they wished they lived there! The laundry facility is also a huge plus and equally well stocked. The sheets/bedding are divine. And the outdoor space leading off the master will be a welcome retreat come Spring/Summer/Fall. For this (Winter) visit, I enjoyed just opening the curtains, letting the light in and seeing the view. The unit and property is super clean and well maintained, something I really appreciate. Couldn't have asked for a better experience. Thanks!
