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 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.

The perfect vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

The South Pacific Suite at the Harrison Modern is the perfect place for a Seattle vacation. The rental is beautiful, has a lovely deck, is well-stocked and impeccably kept. We will return to this lovely spot.

Capital Hill - Seattle best location

  • 5 of 5

I come to visit my son in Capital Hill as often as possible. He lives directly across the street from Harrison Modern, and although that was the main reason I booked there, along with the price, as it turns out this is very central to everything you need in Capital Hill. Located at the corner of 12th & Harrison it is a short walk to Broadway and the best pizza in the US on 15th at Harry's Bar. It felt more like home than a hotel, and not only will I stay again, I will recommend it to my friends and relatives as well. Thank you Ian & Tom!

Great short stay in Seattle

  • 5 of 5

My son and I stayed at the Harrison Modern for 5 days. This apartment was extremely convenient for us with its proximity to Seattle University. The location puts it in the heart of Capitol Hill and the many great eating/drinking venues. It's also close to downtown. Supermarkets and drug stores are within walking distance to stock up on food and other essentials you may need. Because of the location, we were able to enjoy a morning outing, come back and rest, then head out for an afternoon or evening adventure. The apartment itself is very clean. The off-street parking is a must if you have a rental car. We had a great time and would definitely stay here again.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This VRBO is wonderful! I booked it for a long weekend with my daughter. An important part of our trip was the location and the quality of this VRBO. It appears somewhat modest from the outside, but I don't think I have previously found a VRBO so well stocked or so thoughtfully appointed. We made use of the parking space. Pay ahead of time. It was really nice not to have to move the car or look for parking. In fact, once we were parked, we didn't use the car the rest of the weekend. We walked to downtown Seattle, Pike Street Market area, Seattle Univ., the ferry docks, Bainbridge Island and along Broadway. We did use Uber on a late dash back up the hill to make it in time for dinner (La Spiga, on 12th), but the car was mostly unnecessary.

We loved our apartment. Even though it was February, we made use of the added space the roof garden provided. Every night we enjoyed the views of the sky and city lights. (One night, I even saw a shooting star.) The rooms were simply, but nicely decorated. The kitchen and laundry facilities were great. We slept well on the king sized bed. (In fact, I wouldn't mind knowing more about the linens, so I could reproduce the bedding at home!)

Although the weather in Seattle was absolutely beautiful and we spent a lot of time exploring, it was always a treat to come back to the Harrison Modern. Next time, my daughter and I hope to return with the rest of the family.

Seattle Harrison Modern

  • 4 of 5

This is just the perfect one bedroom apartment on top of a building with 4 apartments. This is probably the best of the four, since it has its own private deck! The kitchen is large and well equipped, the apartment was spotlessly clean and a shared laundry room (detergent supplied) was an unexpected bonus. As others pointed out, the location is also excellent. Just so you are forewarned if this is an issue for you, you do have to climb an indoor flight of stairs.
