amazing location, amazing, suite, amazing service!

  • 5 of 5

Me and my family stayed here this past weekend and we couldn't have been more thrilled with the whole experience. The place was beautiful, spotless, and well maintained. There were tons of pillows blankets, towels. There was even a blow up matress that was comfy and a perfect as a third bed.

The whole process from start to finish was easy and delightful.

The location was so perfect. We were literally "steps" away from pike place market and everything you would need on vacation.

We seriously couldn't have asked for a better experience.

We will 100% be back and we 100% recommend this place.

Corner units ROCK!!

  • 5 of 5

This spot is beyond perfect! It is exceptional! The corner unit is great because it's just wide open spaces. No neighbors and no claustrophobia! Just arrive and everything is there! Even plenty of shampoo, conditioner and soap!

We loved the two separate bedrooms. In case you have a 'snoorer' these rooms are a good distance from each other.

The views are breathtaking! The location is perfect!

The only thing is we needed more paper towel, and kitchen towels that were more absorbent and more of them in the kitchen.

Directions on what/where were written with great care and detail. Staff and property management was friendly and approachable, ready to help in any way.

We will be back!

Thank you so much!

Owner's Response: So happy another guest loved one of our Harbor Steps Picture Properties units. We usually leave 3 to 4 kitchen towels available for guests, then at least one extra roll of paper towels in the kitchen as well. Had they asked during their stay, we could have got them another roll. Thank you! Debra, Picture Properties

awesome location!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from our first stay at this condo. The location could not have been better. We went for a Seahawkes football game so it was a good walking distance to enjoy the game with no hassles and enjoy the entertainment. It is just down the stairs out the door to the Piers, aquarium and other sites along the water. Blocks from Pike Street and good restaurants near by. Front staff was very nice on our visit and arranged for any taxi (limo) we needed. For the apartment- it was just perfect for the 4 of us. We have booked holidays with VRBO many times, but our other couple with us had not, and are now wandering why they ever stayed in hotels before. It gave us all our down time in between from sight seeing, but enjoy the view of being in seattle. Both beds were so comfortable, had the best sleep on it! It was big enough as well that we were not tripping on each other and kept our privacy for each couple. Our only complaint which isn't a complaint is that it was super hot in the condo - we turned off the thermostat as soon as we arrived as it was so hot when we walked in. It was not hot outside, actually cloudy and overcast out most of our stay but it was still very warm, but they had fans that we utilized the entire stay. We even put up with the street noise at night to leave the windows open at all times. So I'm not sure how the heat would be when visiting in warm weather in the summer. I will be keeping this unit as one of my favorites, and would recommend this condo to anyone.

Owner's Response: So glad this guest enjoyed our view unit, SE 1403. There are actually 3 thermostats in the apartment, so I have a feeling they only turned off one, leaving the other 2 putting out heat. If there are any issues during your stay, always call or email me and we can take care of it. Thanks! Debra, Picture Properties

Love the accomendations!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the space and the location of Harbor Steps! Everything is so convenient!! The proximity to everything means that we are close to all the different things the family wants to do and we can meet up in the room for the evening. Unfortunately.......Seattle was in the midst of a heat wave so the 14th floor was a little toasty with no A/C but fans were supplied and no one would have predicted that much heat in Seattle.

Apartment stay colored by weather

  • 5 of 5

In writing this review, I'm trying really hard to separate my feelings about the apartment from the horrible heat wave that we experienced while in Seattle during the first week of August. So, the apartment itself was very nicely furnished and comfortable. We love the view and the location was great.

We own historic (adobe) vacation rentals in Santa Fe and are faced with a couple of months of hot weather during the day. We have portable air conditioners which work quite well. The fans in the apartment were relatively ineffective during this very hot weather. The most uncomfortable time of day for us was at night when it's stayed hot inside the apartment. But, we also understand that the weather was pretty much unprecedented and it was just our bad luck to be there during that week.

The only other comment I have is that it would have been nice to have some luggage racks, rather than having to put your suitcase on the floor or on a piece of furniture.

We would definitely encourage you to rent this apartment during your stay in Seattle.
