About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Your own private getaway--a penthouse apartment in the trees--but in the middle of the downtown.

(For a full description and on-line reservation calendar, please see our website at the link at the bottom of this page)

Located in the heart of Port Townsend’s National Landmark Historic Downtown.

Park your car and say goodbye to it. You are steps away from the award winning Rose Theatre, intimate pubs and clubs, and restaurants that specialize in Northwest cuisine as well as exotic fare from around the world. The most eclectic assortment of shops you can imagine. Gorgeous antiques and local arts and crafts. Historic buildings, parks, beaches and hidden places to discover. The very best of Port Townsend's downtown accommodations.

Quiet, spacious, modern, comfortable—with all of Port Townsend's amenities within walking distance.

Our penthouse apartment looks out at a view of the Haller fountain from one bedroom, the other looks across to the historic Terry Building, where the Upstage restaurant offers an intimate nightclub. Both bedrooms offer queen size beds and handsome antique furnishings. The bathroom is commodious and features a shower and soaking tub (bubbles provided).

The kitchen is glorious at first sight, and you will find it convenient for preparing the simplest to the most complex meal. Fully appointed, including Fiestaware for six and crystal wine glasses. The living and dining areas provide comfortable modern furniture, fabulous Port Townsend art, an entertainment center and cozy wood fireplace.

Enjoy a large deck nestled against the verdant hillside, outdoor furniture and Weber BBQ in total privacy. You won’t believe you are downtown PT.

High speed wireless Internet is available throughout the suite and, if you find that you must accomplish some work during your stay, step into the quiet, detached office, complete with computer and fast DSL Internet.

About Sheila and Dave

We are an active and adventurous couple who love to travel and explore. Part of our enjoyment comes from creating our own “home away from home” wherever we go. We love to take part in the communities that we visit. But, we also enjoy returning to our “hidden refuge” for special moments that reconnect us. So…we like being in the thick of it, but we also like our privacy. If you find, as we have, that this experience is sometimes enhanced by having another couple as travel companions, we provide that opportunity…or bring your children and make yourself at home.

Sheila and Dave purchased this apartment in 2005

Downtown Port Townsend - Hillside Penthouse Vacation Rental
average rating of 4.8 based on 5 reviews

Private and convenient to downtown

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a long weekend, almost didn't book because there were no reviews and it concerned me. I was delighted. This two bedroom vaca. rental is perfect if you want to walk around Port Townsend, close to shopping, the water, restaurants but want to have some privacy. The back deck is very private with lots of greenery and even a deer or three come and visit in the morning! Both bedrooms are roomy, beds comfortable and a very well equipped kitchen. Older tube style TV but we were not there to watch TV. Parking can be an issue, although we did find a place to park out front every day. Would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your response, Judy. We appreciate your review. We were part of the VRBO family for a few years and then stopped using its services and our previous reviews did not transfer over when we renewed. We are back on the site and you are our first new review. We are pleased to hear you had a good visit. There are a couple of secrets to parking close too the suite and we will inform our innkeeper to make sure she shares them with our guests. We hope to see you again.

My sister and I had an awesome sister's weekend at this property.

  • 5 of 5

It was extremely clean, the beds were very comfortable and the area quiet in the evenings and night. The fireplace was cozy and made the place toasty warm. The bathtub did stay nice and warm and is bigger than it looks in the pictures. Kitchen well appointed and would have been easy to cook meals in. My sister and I choose to eat out as there are so many good restaurants in the area. Thanks, and we will definitely stay again.

Cozy and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was just as nice as advertised. It was very comfortable for three of us. It is close to town and within walking distance of several good restaurants. On street parking is usually available fairly close by. The owners were pleasant and accommodating.
