Happy in Seattle

I would highly recommend this VRBO property. My only reservation in doing so is it may get so popular that I will have trouble renting again.
We met our adult children in Seattle for a weekend. We drove and enjoyed the secure parking space which easily fit our 4 door GMC truck. We did not move the truck from when we arrived until we departed. Our son took the light rail from the airport which was easy to use and close to the condo.
We met the owner at his office due to our arrival time and his work schedule. With his excellent directions we easily found the condo and parking. The two sets of keys were much appreciated.
The condo exceeded our expectations. Plenty of space and exactly as advertised. The weather was nice so we enjoyed having the patio doors open. A little street noise with the doors open but very quiet when they were closed. The kitchen appeared to have plenty items you would need to cook but we enjoyed eating out.
There are lots of restaurants in the building and nearby. The first night some of us were headed to the 5th Avenue Theater ( which was an easy walk) so we ate at the Italian restaurant right out the front door of the Belltown Courts. The food was good and the service fantastic. We also ate one night at the Sushi place on the corner of Battery and 2nd. The waiter was great complete with funny stories. The sushi was excellent and service good. We indulged in the bakery in the adjacent condo building on 1st street which we would also recommend. There are numerous cafes within a few blocks for hearty breakfasts.
We enjoyed walking all over downtown, Pikes Place Market and the waterfront. This condo is easy walking distance to all areas of downtown.
Traveling with young adults in their twenties meant there would be some nightlife. There were many places to get a beer, play some pool, dance or whatever you are looking for. It felt very safe to walk in Belltown and downtown at night, although we stayed in a group.
The only negative thing I can think of, which is minor, is the floor squeaks. This was only a concern when my husband who rises very early, did I say verrrrry early, decided to check out the view from the different doors and windows.
Once again I would highly recommend renting this condo. The owner was very accommodating, you can easily walk to Seattle sights or you might wish to stay in and enjoy this great place with its views and nicely appointed interior space.
