"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!"Guest: Pamela L. Date of Stay: October 2014 Review Submitted: October 17, 2014View listing
"This place was wonderful! Every thing we could have possibly needed was there. The place was so nicely decorated. It was really comfortable to stay there. I loved the location! It's such a nice, quiet, friendly neighborhood and close to so much. We walked to Luna Cafe, Trader Joes, and the water taxi. My husband was able to go on some really nice runs while we were there, right from the house--once he ran to Lincoln Park and that area, the other time he followed Alki Trail and ran along the beach. We loved how close the free shuttle to the water taxi was. We took the shuttle a couple of times, but we also walked to the water taxi and it wasn't bad at all. We would definitely stay there again!"Guest: Jessica T. Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: August 27, 2014View listing
"This rental was perfect for us as it's within blocks of where our son lives in Wallingford. It's in a great walking neighborhood and we were able to walk each morning to get breakfast. (The rental has a kitchen, but we chose not to cook for the limited time we would be there). There's a beautiful, quiet garden with a table and chairs out front for relaxing and reading. Garnett, the owner, lives in the house and we enjoyed meeting and talking with her. We'll definitely want to stay here when we visit Seattle again. It's far enough out from the hustle and bustle of the city, yet the Seattle skyline is within view from the end of the street."Guest: Nancy d.

"My wife and I had a wonderful stay at this cottage. Madison was a great host. The location was great, very close to bus stops, restaurants, markets, and cafes. This is a great spot for visitors without cars. We look forward to returning soon."Guest: terence l. Date of Stay: June 2014 Review Submitted: June 15, 2014View listing
Seattle Travel Tips
Best Time of Year to Visit Seattle Vacation Rentals
Seattle is known for its high amount of rainfall. In fact, statistically it rains at least half of the time. The heaviest rains occur during the months of October and December, and between January and May. The summer months of June through August are the driest and also have the warmest daytime temperatures. For obvious reasons, this is the most popular time of year for people to visit Seattle. Even though the city experiences a lot of rainfall, the climate is relatively mild compared to other North American cities on the same latitude. Although the winter months are cold, snow occurs only occasionally and usually does not last for more than a day or two. For visitors, it is advisable to always have a rain jacket with you as the weather is very changeable.
