Prefectly Outstanding

  • 5 of 5

My sincere apologies for this being so late in coming BUT being late on my end does not take away from just how fantastic our stay was. This was a birthday trip for my mom. Seattle and day trip to Victoria BC. We were within walking distance to EVERYTHING we wanted to do (we love to walk the city but the light rail and bus stops were right outside it seemed). The Ferris whee/Pike Place/Space Needle/Aquarium ( a must!)/Gardens/The ferry ride to BC/ Etc and restaurants oh man crazy delicious restaurants.

The view was mesmerizing to say the least. The ferries coming in and out and the ferris wheel lighting up our evenings just spectacular. The appartment was spotless and so comfortable. Wonderfully quiet and cozy while being warm and comfortable. Like being home. Beza at the front desk helped us in every way imaginable between her and the appartment my expectations were blewn right out of the water. Beza even helped arrange a crazy early morning ride for us to the airport when we had to leave at 3:30 AM due to a funeral back home. Debra answered my text late Sat night regarding wifi (I should have checked my welcome docs and not bothered her my bad) without a pause. She was helpful and sweet when responding fast to any questions I had. We will definitely be coming back and staying again. Thank you for this lovely gem.

Perfect location, great views, wonderfully updated apartment.

  • 5 of 5

We could not have found a better apartment for our trip to Seattle. The best part was enjoying the ferry boats come and go and watching the Ferris wheel at night from the balcony.

Well appointed condo with great views of Puget Sound

  • 5 of 5

This condo had everything we needed for our week long stay in Seattle. It was centrally located allowing us to walk most of the week to all the major attractions. Sitting on the balcony each morning for breakfast watching the boat traffic was a great way to start the day and returning to the balcony each night for the sunset was the perfect ending to each day.

Unusually high temperatures for this time of year came rolling into the city, but Debra was on top of it making sure we had fans in the unit to keep things as cool as possible.

If we find ourselves heading to Seattle again this will be our first choice for accommodations and we highly recommend anyone else considering a visit to Seattle to stay in this unit at Harbor Steps.

Spacious, comfortable, great location - and what a view!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Harbor Steps. Easy check-in as there's a 24-hour concierge. (The concierge also was very kind in printing our airline boarding passes- and offering to assist us with calling a cab, etc.)

Very nice building, good amenities (gym etc.) and excellent downtown location - just a couple blocks from Pike's Place Market and other attractions. About 1 1/2 blocks to Light Link Rail station - which gives you quick (20 mins) and inexpensive ($3 for adult fare; $1 for senior) ride to Sea-Tac Airport. MUCH quicker and cheaper than cab or even Uber.

Apartment is also close (1 - 1 1/2 mi) to pier where ferry to Victoria, BC arrives/departs. A Target and a Kress grocery within 2 - 3 blocks (Kress has better selection of food items). If you like to walk and the weather cooperates - it's only about 20 mins (1.4 miles) to the Chihuly Gardens and Space Needle.

Had a very nice birthday lunch at nearby Palomino Restaurant - we recommend. Ask for waiter Paul - he could not have been more friendly and accommodating.

The apartment was exactly as pictured - big, beautiful picture windows overlooking Elliott Bay....the King bed was comfortable, large dresser, and the bathroom and kitchen were clean and spacious, with granite countertops.

We really appreciated how Debra was quick to reply to any emails/texts inquiries and very quick to replace a couple of items that weren't working properly (toaster and iron). We had replacements the very next day.

Our only suggestion: in many vacation rentals, the owners provide a notebook "guide" to the apartment and to the general area. Info about the apt was included in the "pre-arrival" email but it's always nice to have the same info in the apt. There were also some Seattle brochures and maps in the apt - much appreciated.

We recommend this great location for your visit to Seattle.

Perfect quick getaway with my daughter!

  • 5 of 5

Right in the heart of downtown Seattle! Steps away from the Crab Pot and a quick 2block walk to Pikes! Place was clean and update with a great view of the Ferris wheel from the balcony.
