About Preben Martin - Owner

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!


Nicole and Preben Martin

Preben Martin - Owner purchased this condo in 2007

Why Preben Martin - Owner chose Central

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.

What makes this condo unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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

spring break in Seattle

  • 5 of 5

An amazing trip. The condo was perfect for my family of four. Everything is walkable distance. The Aquarium, The Argosy Harbor Cruise, Pike Place. Restaurants and bars. We went to a Sounders game with a short walk to the lightail. We went to the Space Needle, Science museum and MoPOP with a quick walk to the monorail. The condo has movies and games (we loved Balderdash)! Full kitchen allowed us to pick up fresh fish and cook at home. Great owners, great place!

Wonderful Home! Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Great location, wonderfully responsive owners, amazingly comfortable

  • 5 of 5

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!!

April/May 2016 - Under construction!

  • 1 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: The building is indeed under construction, and we informed the renters of this when they booked their stay and gave them a significant discount off of the standard rate at that time because of the communicated exterior construction. Unfortunately the construction and the noise are out of our control. They stayed in our unit almost the entire length of their stay and only chose to move for the final few days of their stay, which is why we fairly refunded an additional 55% off of the already reduced rate. We at no time agreed to a full refund. The photos of the unit are accurate, however we did take the opportunity during the construction period to make some wonderful updates to the interior as well. We replaced all of the flooring with new beautiful flooring, painted throughout, made the den into a lovely 2nd bedroom, added a new LCD TV in the living room, and added A/C. We will be updating the photos shortly. We take great pride in making sure that the unit is clean, unfortunately, the exterior construction means that the unit gets dusty fairly quickly. We can not wait until the construction is over and the building is restored to its grand state, only better - with new siding and glass decks to enjoy the fabulous views.
