We are Seattle natives but now spend half of the year in Tucson, AZ and our condo in Hawaii, both of which are also available to rent through VRBO. Working in sports television has its perks, but after many days on the road our favorite things to do are spend relaxing days in the beautiful places we call home. While in Seattle we love to walk to dinner at some of the fabulous Pike Place Market restaurants, take walks along the waterfront to the Olympic Sculpture Park, go skiing in the winter and cruise around on the sound in the summer. It is one of our favorite places on Earth and we hope you are able to enjoy it as well!

Preben Martin - Owner purchased this condo in 2007
We purchased our Seattle condo in April of 2007 and after an extensive remodel began staying there in June of that same year. It is truly amazing to be able to enjoy the tranquility of the waterfront while having the bustle and entertainment of the city in your backyard! It is THE quintessential Seattle location within walking distance of shopping, dining and fantastic Seattle attractions.
This is the only waterfront condo in downtown Seattle. Minuets to all of the best attractions and food, please an amazing view from which to take it all in.
I just wanted to thank you for the opportunity to rent your gorgeous apt in downtown Seattle in March! It was more than we could hope for, and even more lovely than your photos on VRBO. Totally brand new and the highest of quality. A lovely place to sit & share our lives, or pop out to wander the market & shops, find another incredible restaurant. We could not be more pleased!!! The location and view were absolutely perfect (they even had fireworks over the water on our 1st night!). We were able to walk everywere – fell in love with Seattle. I would have written something in a guest book there, but did not find one. Again, thank you so much, Nicole! I hope to come back some time and bring my husband.Yours truly,Anne SacoraKentucky
I came to town for the HomeAway Summit Conference, and decided to stay in a local vacation rental. This home was perfect. It was very comfortable, and had every amenity we needed. Preben was an excellent communicator, and welcomed us with a phone call prior to our check in. The home is in a great location. We were able to walk everywhere we wanted from this home! I would recommend this rental to anyone!
When we retired, our goal was to travel for two years, using VRBO in multiple cities around the country. Our plans were cut short by two months because of aging parents in Minnesota who needed some help. One of the places we didn't get to go, but intended to, was Seattle. Now, we've made it! While there are numerous places to rent in this city, this was the only one that met absolutely all our criteria, not the least of which was the amazing location right on Alaskan Way across from the aquarium, the Great Wheel, the piers, and the cruise ship terminal. The incredible bonus - right under Pike Place Market with elevator access straight into the market from a parking garage less than a block away. The front desk manager was most welcoming and was very helpful in our receiving mail and packages while there (if you need to get mail or packages, the owner will tell you how they must be addressed). The condo itself was very comfortable and was sparkling clean. The air conditioner in the living room did a commendable job and the owner installed a bedroom air conditioner while we were there. Happy, happy, happy. The living room faces the water with amazing views of Puget Sound. Sadly, when we were there, there was scaffolding outside the windows as the building exterior was undergoing renovation. That will go away soon - and it only partially blocked our view. LOVE being able to sit on the sofa watching the ferries go back and forth, not to mention the huge cargo ships that lumber by.
The kitchen is nicely laid out. The stove was amazing. There is plenty of cupboard space for whatever supplies you might bring. Most essentials are already present courtesy of the owner and/or previous guests leaving non-perishables as they depart.
The shower is huge with both a wall-mount/handheld head and a rain shower overhead. The vanity area has two sinks, which is great when two of you need to get ready at the same time.
Underground parking with steel grate roll-up doors that are remote controlled keep your car safe and dry. And, the people who live in the building that you meet coming and going are all friendly and personable.
One of the nicest features was the inclusion of a full size stacking washer and dryer. Not many units do that anymore.
During the course of our stay, we had one or two minor needs that were attended to by the owners immediately.
Would we stay in this condo again when visiting Seattle? In a heartbeat!!
Our trip was 15th April to 28th April 2016.
The description was not accurate - there was no view because of scaffolding netting.
The pictures used are old - the rooms have been modified.
The property was not clean.
The owners were pleasant and accommodating but this did not make up for the disappointment.
The weather was hot but opening the windows was not an option due to the building scaffolding, workmen and noise.
We stuck it out until we could cope no more and moved to a hotel.
I negotiated a full refund with the owner but which was later reduced to just 55%
I would avoid this property until all the building work is complete and gone.
We spent three weeks in this luxury condo right on the waterfront. It was A+ from start to finish. We loved the location right near all the action, but quiet and peaceful. It was a plus to have underground indoor parking. We went to Whole Foods and parked in their underground free lot and never had to go out if it was raining. We were able to walk to the Chihuly Glass Museum and Space Needle, of course to Pike Place Market, also down along the waterfront to the Outdoor Sculpture Park, and the other way to the Aquarium. Having washer/dryer makes it so easy to be there for an extended stay. Kitchen was great for all meals when not going out, we even barbecued upstairs, and that was easy also. This apartment has A/C for the unusual hot or muggy day, mostly we just used fans and opened the patio door for some fresh air. Could watch a movie in the separate TV room on those nights you spend in, and this was also great if one of you wants to sleep and the other is up watching TV or reading. We set up both our laptops, and the wifi worked fine, allowing us to do some work or phone conferences if necessary. We lucked out with very good weather, and definitely take a sunset sail on the bay, so lots of "mountain out" days, but this apartment is so cozy and comfy, anytime we had to stay indoors we were just fine. Having the Marriott just next door is also a plus if you need a taxi, or a quick close meal without having to walk anywhere. There are other places to eat in walking distance, some with outdoor waterfront seating. All in all, we thoroughly loved our time in Seattle and staying at this wonderful apartment. We would love to come back and stay during our next visit out to the Pacific Northwest, thanks so much.
This condo is every bit as lovely as the pictures. The view is marvelous and the location could not be any better. You don't need a car as you can easily walk everywhere, but with the included underground parking space, we did rent a car and visited several places outside of Seattle...especially enjoyed the Boeing Plant in Everett and the wine country in Woodinville. We loved having the wine refrigerator for our 10 day stay. Also, having the W/D in the unit was much appreciated. The kitchen is well equipped, the shower is huge, the towels are soft and fluffy, the bed is super comfy, there is plenty of light in the double sink vanity area, the WiFi is fast and dependable, the condo is very quiet and comfortable and with the flip of a switch there is a fire in the fireplace. There is a big walk-in closet with plenty of room for your luggage and plenty of hangers for your clothes. There are also plenty of drawers in the dresser in the bedroom. We liked the roof terrace, which has several tables and chairs for dining and/or cocktails and we we used the grill up there a few times. The view from the condo balcony as well as from inside the apartment through the big windows is great for watching the ships come and go and watching the sun set, and looking down on the courtyard is very pretty too. The entire building is nice and extremely well maintained and all the staff were so friendly and helpful. Our favorite restaurant turned out to be one at the Pike Market....Place Pigalle...beautiful view, excellent menu, outstanding wine list, attentive owner, not inexpensive but not ridiculous...good value for the money. We were so lucky with the weather...we stayed the first 10 days of October and I never took the umbrellas out of the suitcase. This is definitely a 5 star condo and I hope we get to return in the next couple of years. Preben and Nicole were so helpful with the couple of questions that we did have, but they have included most everything that you might ask in the instructions that they give you. Excellent choice in Seattle!
Everything about this stay was incredible! Within a few minutes of our arrival at the condo complex, we were settling into our fabulous "home" for the entire week. You know how sometimes you see gorgeous pictures on-line, then get to your destination and think, "How is this possible?" The photos are totally accurate: the condo is spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated with up-to-date appliances, and very comfortable.
The location is perhaps the best in the city. Being on the waterfront is a nearly constant treat for the senses. Walkers and dog-walkers, runners, and cyclists are all up very early, along with the large ferries that travel back and forth to the islands in Elliott Bay, before the sun rises to long after it sets. If you're in Seattle during Alaskan cruise season, the cruise ships are across the street. There are restaurants and sight-seeing opportunities practically right outside the door. The Washington State Ferry building is within easy walking distance, if you choose to visit one of Seattle's many islands. During waking hours (and a little before and maybe after), the waterfront is a playground for tourists and residents alike, and yet it's very quiet inside the condo. The living room and balcony are perfect for people-watching.
We did have a car, because we wanted the flexibility and ease of just getting in our own car to go out of town, but it isn’t necessary if you're planning to stay in Seattle. Turn right out of the gate, walk a short distance, and take the stairs (or elevator) to Pike Place Market. From there, it's a fairly quick walk to the downtown to shop, eat, sightsee, or catch the monorail to Seattle Center. (Although be aware that from the waterfront to the center of the city straight up is very undulating terrain).
Preben and Nicole were wonderful to us; be sure to read everything they send carefully, and you probably won’t have to ask any questions once there. I would recommend this condo experience to a couple (or additionally one or two children) traveling to Seattle. We were delighted from the moment we set foot in the living room, and after a solid week, not ready to leave. We visited a fascinating city, had mostly sunny, warm weather, and each day returned to this beautiful place to live. What more could anyone want?
Pike Place Market, Seattle Aquarium, Olympic Sculpture Park, Waterfront Activities, shopping and restaurants all within a short walk.
