Overview

About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

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!

About Property 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!

Property Owner purchased this condo in 2014

Why Property Owner chose Downtown

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!

What makes this condo unique

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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My best friend and I do a girls trip every year. This was the perfect place to stay! We will be back again this year!!

Truly home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay in this wonderful apartment right on the waterfront. The beds were super comfortable (including the Murphy bed), the bathroom was spacious and super clean, and the kitchen was hands down the best stocked kitchen of any place have ever rented. Check in and out were easy and the owner, Jeri, was super friendly and accommodating. We loved that we could walk absolutely everywhere we wanted to go.

It would be nice if there was another (full length) mirror in the rental so more than one person can get ready at a time, and there was this strange knocking sound in the walls in the mornings and again at night that we could never pinpoint or figure out its cause (?). And you do hear a little traffic from the elevated highway, but it was more like background noise and never really affected our sleep. We would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review! That's a great idea with the mirror... Next time I'm down there at our place I'll see if I can make something work. As for the noise you are talking about... Our condo is located above the garage. It is chain driven and you can hear a faint clicking sound as it goes up and down. The great part is that at 10pm they lock it and you don't hear it again until 7am in the morning. I'm so happy you had a wonderful stay and look forward to you coming to enjoy our place again! Warm Regards, Jeri Plaster

Loved my stay at this apartment. So close to all the things I wanted to do. Walking distance to everything downtown and just a few steps from Pike Place Market. Will definitely be staying here again on my next trip to Seattle.

Beautiful and comfortable dwelling in a great location. Near restaurants, shops, and transportation

  • 5 of 5

A really comfortable home away from home. Great location - a short walk to Pike Place Market, great restaurants, and public transportation. Jeri sent a list of some of her favorite restaurants and activities. We tried a number of her suggestions and loved them. Also appreciated were her instructions/directions for taking the light rail from the airport to the condo. Jeri called before we left home to answer questions I had about my first visit to Seattle. She called the day we arrived to make sure things were going smoothly. And she called after we left to make sure we enjoyed the stay. If you're looking for a first class experience this is it!

Condo is in such a great location to downtown Seattle and the Pike Market - no car is needed if you don't want one! The fire was wonderful and the full kitchen was so nice to have access to. Beautifully decorated and designed.

Great location and very accomadating!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful anniversary trip staying at Jeri's condo. The location was perfect. A few minutes walk to Pike's Place Market and to the Pier. The condo was well stocked with kitchen amenities for cooking fresh seafood and pasta from the market. The King size bed was very comfortable. Free parking in the onsite garage a big plus!!

Thank you for sharing your home with us. We can't wait to come back sometime in the near future :-)
