Over 1000 square feet of relaxing, well-equipped perfection nestled at the base of the steps leading up to Pike Place Market, across the street from the Seattle waterfront, the Aquarium, and Pier 62. Finished in a décor reminiscent of Seattle’s early days, with red-bricked wall, dark wood floors, and subway-tiled bathroom. Be greeted with a complimentary bottle of wine.
Start the day sipping a fresh cup of French pressed coffee on the terrace while gazing upon Seattle’s waterfront as it comes alive. Take the stairs (or the elevator) up to Pike Place Market, the nation’s oldest continuously operated public farmers’ market, to take in the fascinating commotion of open-air commerce. Sample fresh-baked bread, pastries or piroshky; sample locally produced cheeses; or peruse an unmatched selection of fresh seafood.
This property is family owned and run by my husband and I. Our mission is to redefine your vacation rental experience. Your satisfaction, as our guest, is our goal. Why pay more to stay at an ordinary hotel when you can relax in a central location while enjoying modern comforts and amenities in a slightly nostalgic Old Seattle setting. The local waterfront national chain hotel's rates start at $255/night and parking is also additional.

About the owner: We have had a personal love for the city of Seattle for over 20 years. We enjoy this waterfront condo not only because of the location and views, but also because of the serenity. This is our in-city retreat to hang out with our Family and Friends, see a Mariners game, watch the Seahawks play, Enjoy great Shopping, Eat wonderful food, Stroll around Pike Street Market or just kick back and Relax!
Why the Owner Chose Belltown: We chose this location to be closer to the water as well as to provide an in-city retreat for our family and friends... This is Our Home Away From Home!
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: We love to get up in the morning and walk the 80 steps to Pike Place Market and watch the market open for the day! We have been going there for decades and Never get tired of it. I am definitely a frequent customer to the Seattle Antique Market only 1 block away as well. Some of the touches I have added to this condo are from this same market. This location has also been a great starting point for our Seattle Seahawk games as well as our University of Washington games. The Seahawk stadium is 8 blocks away and the shuttle to the University of Washington takes about 20 minutes.
We also love to walk to the Ferry docks (6 blocks) and catch the ferry to Bainbridge Island to spend the day. Where else could you hop a ferry to an island, have a gourmet Northwest dinner and be back in Seattle the same evening? My favorite end to the day is to have a couple pints at Kell's Irish Pub up at the Pike Market's Post alley location. Where else can you imbibe with both locals and Seattle visitors, listen to live Irish music, eat a bowl of Irish stew and sing some lyrics? Nothing better to end the day with!
