About Becki Snellenberg
Becki Snellenberg, Owner and Manager since 1998. I am proud to have consistently held an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau. Traveling internationally for 16 years as a management consultant with Microsoft I learned how challenging business travel can be. My best experiences were when I stayed in vacation rentals rather than hotels. I was glad to give up hotel services to stay in a homelike environment with a full kitchen and experience living like a local, particularly when my family traveled with me. After adopting two more children I decided it was time to give up the traveling life and stay closer to home. Starting up this business was just a natural for me. We currently own a few properties and professionally manage properties for several other owners and the same building. Because we have a great reputation in the Seattle vacation rental industry and want to keep it, we are very selective about the properties we take on and ensure that our owners keep their properties up to the highest possible standards. I look forward to helping you make your stay in Seattle a memorable one.
Why Becki Snellenberg chose First Hill
Fabulous location in the heart of downtown. We bought here because we were impressed by the style of a 1940's building which was updated to condos in the 1990's. The updates were tastefully done while retaining much of the charm of the era. The Elektra Homeowners' CC&R's specifically allow for rentals of 3 days or more making this a great place to buy for owners who wanted to keep a second home in the city, or who find that they need to travel extensively in their profession and have their units empty much of the time. These are the owners we represent. Our owners invest a lot of personal care into maintaining their units because they want to feel as if they are welcoming guests into their own home - which is exactly what they are doing. We have so enjoyed hosting people from all over the country and the world coming to Seattle for temporary work, for relocation, to attend conventions, for medical treatment, to visit family or just to experience this fabulous city and all that it has to offer
What makes this Condo unique
Walking distance to theater, restaurants, shopping, Pike Place Market, Waterfront, Museums, nightlife. Tucked into a quiet side street next to the Convention Center, we escape much of the ordinary noise and street traffic you would find in a downtown area, yet are steps from all the life, vibrancy and activity that downtown has to offer. The trendy Pike Pine neighborhood is one of the most up and coming neighborhoods in Seattle. Our guests also enjoy the convenience of nearby grocery stores, restaurants and shops of any small neighborhood. For those coming to town to access some of the finest medical facilities in the country, we are also very close. We are two blocks from Virginia Mason and easy walking distance to Swedish and Harborview hospitals.
100% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 7 days before arrival date.
This is fairly roomy for 4 people. Having 2 bathrooms was very nice. Beds were comfy and plenty of towels. Carpet needs updating but look freshly vacuumed when we arrived. The view out the windows is really nice too.
Moderately priced condo within walking distance of Pike Street.
Overall this condo was very convenient to the Conference Center, and a very walkable distance to Pikes Place Market, Seattle Center Tram, Westlake Station, restaurants, bar/pubs, etc.
The downside was occasional odors (cigarette smoke and cat litter box) coming from the ventilation system or the older carpeting, which was somewhat unpleasant. The 3/4 bath needs minor wall repairs.
The property managers are very responsive and friendly, so I am sure they will address the minor issues we experienced. I would recommend this property to others looking for a more affordable alternative to pricey area hotels.

Excellent downtown location
Our family of six stayed at Becki and Doug's place and it was excellent. It was clean, had everything we needed, and the beds were all comfortable. The location right behind the convention center was ideal and we had an easy walk to the light rail station and all of downtown. There were plenty of restaurants close by and a grocery store. The view from the fourteenth floor was wonderful and the apartment was very quiet. We would definitely stay here again.
Perfect As Always
Myself and my friends have stayed in Becki’s properties on a number of different occasions, and it’s without a doubt our favourite place to stay in Seattle. It’s about a 3-5 minute walk to the convention centre, there’s tons of pillows and blankets and dishes, the beds are comfortable, the place is spotless, and the wifi is fast and reliable (even when we had ten people on it during a movie night). Parking was available and in a locked underground garage, so we felt super safe. Checkin and checkout were easy, painless, and flexible, and it’s only about a 15 minute walk to Target or 2 minutes to a convenience store around the corner for the essentials. We’d love to stay here again for future Seattle conventions!
Great location! We walked everywhere downtown! Very spacious & easily slept five.
Doug was so helpful and kind. The VRBO was clean and spacious - the perfect home base for a fun trip to downtown Seattle!
Great place. Close to convention center.
Exactly what we needed for our stay.
