Property description

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.



AMENITIES

Living Room: Open and sunny, with large windows facing south and west, comfortable leather couch and chairs

Kitchen: Modern, with Kitchen Aid stainless appliances, gas oven/stove, refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher, soapstone countertops, large island for entertaining and plenty of cookware and dishware to service 8 people. Full size front loading Washer & Dryer (Detergent & Fabric Softner Provided).

Bedroom: Features a Comfortable King Size Bed, Modern rustic furniture, French doors opening to living room area with Privacy Curtains. Extra pull out Queen size Murphy Cabinet Bed in the Living Room with a comfortable Tempurpedic Mattress.

Bathroom: Early metropolitan subway tile décor, Huge jetted tub with shower, soapstone-covered vanity and Large walk-in closet. The Sink and Toilet area are separate from the Shower/Tub by pocket doors. This makes it easier if you have more than one person getting ready at a time.

Entertainment: 48” flat panel TV on swivel mount, DVD player, Direct Satellite TV, Free WiFi.

Outdoor Features: Comfortable Private Terrace, with Dining table & Chairs, viewing the Water, Seattle Aquarium, The Ferris Wheel and Pier 62!

As of 2016, we now have a Portable AC Vent located in the Living Room for our Portable Air Conditioner. One of the positive points to having the building exterior re-done! (Almost NO Buildings, Less than 5% in Seattle have Central Air Conditioning) So, we are one of the Lucky Ones!

Also be aware that this is an urban environment. In any Urban Core, you can expect to hear street noise, often late into the evening. If a silent outdoor environment is important to you, downtown Seattle (or any big city for that matter) may not be the best place for you to stay. Any questions about this, ask! We want our guests to be happy.

Suitability:

Children welcome

No Pets

No smoking on premises

Parking: (1) private parking space in under-building garage (limited to Compact or Midsize cars only) in a secure parking garage. If you have a Truck or Large SUV, know that it will not fit!

Also, the Light rail is just 4 blocks East on the corner of 3rd and Pine. We don't even rent a car anymore. We just take the Light rail from the Airport to Westlake. Then walk four blocks to the condo. It takes about 40 minutes to get to or from the airport to West lake station. Cost is about $3.00 each way per person.

Attractions: Myrtle Edwards Park (waterfront path great for walks, jogging or a nice bike ride), cruise ship terminal, or attractions along the Waterfront. Seattle’s finest restaurants, bars & cafes(over 700) are less than a 5 minute walk from condo. Walk, cycle, or drive onto a ferry to Bremerton, Vashon Island, West Seattle or Bainbridge Island.

Approx. 15 minute walk to Safeco & Century Link Stadiums(Exactly 1.1miles)

Downstairs from Pike Place Market (There used to be concrete steps up to the Market Place but they are gone now due to the 70 Million Dollar upgrade to Pike Street Market!

Location

Pike Place Market is a flight of stairs away. And for those of us that need the occasional elevator ride... There are two. One at the Parking Garage next door to our building and the other is just on the North end of our building. Seattle Aquarium is across the street.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

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 Pike Place Market, Seattle, WA, USA:
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!
