A Rare Find! Downtown Seattle Waterfront Condo! Parking Included!

Bedrooms 1
Space 1,000 sq. ft.
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 3 nights


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.


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.

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 Seattle

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!

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!!

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 :-)

Great stay in Seattle

  • 5 of 5

Location, location, location. This unit is close to everything. Walk out the condo and around the backside - you are just an elevator away from Pikes Market. So much fun!!! Best thing is, you don't need to rent a car. Jeri, the owner has made this place extremely comfortable and it is fully stocked. The furniture is very comfortable, nice accommodations. In addition, she has taken the time to write out detailed reviews for great places to visit. Loved Seattle, loved the people. Folks went out of their way to be helpful. Felt like I was back in the Midwest. Great visit. Will definitely go back. Thanks Jeri...great VRBO owner.

Perfect place with wonderful people!

  • 5 of 5

This is truly a perfect place for a Seattle excursion. It's just steps away from Pike Place Market with so much to explore within walking distance, like great restaurants, access to ferries, water taxi, bike rentals, museums, parks, shops and more. There's a light rail stop just a few blocks away—an easy walk for longer treks around Seattle or for getting to/from the airport. The transit system is also easy to navigate around town [Thank you, Jeri, for letting me know all of this ahead of time]! I enjoyed morning runs on the waterfront path, which is literally right out the front door, and hikes in nature were close by as well.

The condo is beautifully decorated, comfortable, and so well equipped that it felt like being at home. It is obvious that Jeri has put a lot of loving attention into making the condo a place of solace and convenience for her guests, right down to the small details. Her lovely spirit can be felt in the home she has created there; it was a place of respite at the end of each day. Having traveled a lot and stayed in many different places, I can say that my experience here and with Jeri really stand out. Jeri was incredibly kind and such an excellent communicator throughout the rental process. She even provided lists of helpful hints and things to do around Seattle. Honestly, it felt like having a personal concierge for our stay. Thank you so much for everything, Jeri, and thank you for making our trip so wonderful! We look forward to staying again!

Rare find indeed!

  • 5 of 5

The location isn't all that's perfect. The beautiful, quaint condo in Pike Place Market is owned by a family that is #1 in customer service. Jeri went above and beyond to welcome us to Seattle and provide us the information we needed to make our trip a memorable one. Without her, we would have spent money on an Uber instead of taking the inexpensive Seattle Sound Transit rail to the condo. There is a small parking space for those that do need a rental car for a few days (FYI- it's cheaper to take the rail to the condo and then rent a car somewhere local). Thank you for all your help Jeri!
