Overview

About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

In this condo, you can sleep soundly on the Memory Foam queen sized bed with down feather pillows and comforter (it's even located on the quieter side of the building!), take a relaxing bath in the condo's shower/tub combination, and do a little gourmet cooking in the fully equipped kitchen that's stocked with basic provisions. You can even enjoy a quiet evening at home with our 46' flat screen TV with a BluRay DVD player and WiFi while you do some laundry in our condo's own washer and dryer. This condo even has dimmers for some mood lighting.

The building also has a recreation room with a pool table and big screen TV and you can also access the rooftop deck with amazing views of downtown Seattle. There is also a laundry room.

Although you will be within walking distance of everything Seattle has to offer, we can also accommodate you with your personal designated parking spot if needed.

God forbid, if you ever need a hospital, Virginia Mason and Swedish are just a quick two minute walk away.

Brand new furnishing in the entire condo.

Wonderful location, Great for business and pleasure.

About Grace & Rachel

We are a mother and daughter who have lived in Seattle for 10+ years and we love it here.

We really enjoy going out to try new restaurants and relaxing while drinking a great cup of coffee at one of the many wonderful cafés here, and Rachel loves knows where all the best breweries, hiking spots, and bike trails are.

There are so many fun things to do and see in Seattle and we can't wait to share our city with you!

Great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

The location was wonderful. We walked most places. My conferences was at the Convention Center which took less than 5 minutes to walk to. It is right off busy Pike Street so plenty of places to eat and shop. The apartment was clean and cozy. The towels were luxurious, but it would be nice to have 2 more sets. Grace was only a text away if we needed anything.

Great location, good value

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for the weekend to attend a conference at the Convention Center. We loved the location! It was a quick walk to our conference and to tons of restaurants and shopping. The condos are a little older and some spots were in need of repair but this unit was furnished nicely and the bed was comfortable. Grace was really great to work with and was very accommodating when we needed a later check out. I would recommend this to a friend.

Would not stay here again

  • 2 of 5

Grace and Rachel were mostly helpful in advance of us staying with them, however some of our questions/requests in advance of our arrival sent via VRBO went unanswered (i.e. request for earlier check-in). I think they may be more responsive via text than through VRBO, as we did not have trouble reaching them via text during our stay. There was also some incorrect information in the listing, specifically: "$25/night for each additional guest over 4 people Queen size Aerobed available upon request". Although we were only 4 guests, we requested the air mattress so different sexes would not have to share a bed. Grace and Rachel did not understand this request and this bed was not available. Per Grace/Rachel, the space also maxes out at 4 people, it does not accommodate more than this (even for extra $25/night, as stated on their page).

The building itself it is dark and dingy, but provides good security with key fob needed to access the building. The apartment was clean on the surface, but is clearly fairly old - the carpet definitely needs replacing and one of the lights only works if set a certain way. We did not have Wifi the first 2 days (half our stay). Grace/Rachel were quick about obtaining a new router, however, they did not activate it, so we had to contact them again and were without Wifi for an additional day.

The pull-out couch was incredibly uncomfortable, as you can feel every spring through the mattress. Piling on blankets (provided) helped a bit with this. The living room was also quite cold as the window could not be closed due to the attached air conditioner unit (which was covered and not in use, we visited in late Sept). We would also recommend the hosts invest in a full-length mirror, additional bath towels, and 2-ply toilet paper for a more comfortable stay.

If the convention center is your only destination, this location cannot be beat. There is a shortcut through the park beside the building, about a 3-minute walk. To get to attractions downtown (Pike Place Market, etc) you can expect to walk 15+ minutes, but it is doable.

Finally, some of our deposit was deducted for "damage to the closet door", although we did not notice damage in this area at any time during our stay. I would recommend documenting any damages when you arrive and taking pictures when you leave, as now we do not have any evidence to dispute this claim.

We had a great stay!

  • 4 of 5

Grace and Rachel were very flexible and easy to contact with any questions! It was very nice to have a place to stay with a kitchen and living area. The bathroom is a little small for two people to share but we managed. The bed is very comfortable! The apartment is very close to the convention center and not a bad walk to the waterfront area. Thank you again, we really did enjoy our stay!

Great stay at a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay! The location of the unit was perfect for us, as it is just a couple of blocks from the convention center. There are also a number of restaurants and coffee bars close by. Rachel and Grace were great hosts, and provided a number of recommendations of where to eat in Seattle. We would definitely stay here again when visiting Seattle!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This place is very much walking distance like everyone says. If you're coming from Westlake Station I would recommend getting a ride as the walk there with luggage was more than we would have done had we known. There's a convenience store a short distance away, we walked to Pike Place Market (take Savor Seattle tour!!), walked to Starbucks Reserve/Serious Pie (coconut cream pie divine but about $12!) and walked to The Saint. That was a bit much not because of distance but killer hills! Regardless it was a perfect location and this condo?/apartment? was perfectly located right near elevator. Rachel and Grace were top notch with communication and also helped us with luggage accommodations! Fell in love with Seattle and this VRBO added to the amazing experience. I'd just recommend updating the TV info (not Comcast, no HBO) and maybe adding more comforters. The pull out bed isn't really comfy so we added layers with comforters. Thank you Rachel and Grace!!
