About the property

Harbor Steps Downtown ~ 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 4-6, but 5 adults max

Welcome to Harbor Steps - the best building and location in all Seattle!

See also eight more 2-bedrooms at Harbor Steps (VRBO 403924, 437728, 555845, 443070, 445484, 678175, 671381, 819815), and two 1-bedrooms (VRBO 403861, 499060) in same Harbor Steps complex.

Please note, Harbor Steps does not have AC (like 85% of Puget Sound area residences). Average high temp in July and Aug is 75 deg, but sometimes it gets warmer than that, of course.

This 2 bedroom, 2 bath apartment (sleeping 4-6, but 5 adults max) will be your home sweet home-base during your stay. Whether in Seattle on business, to sight-see, or visiting family or friends, you will LOVE this apartment, the building amenities, and the location of Harbor Steps. Truly, nothing compares.

~~ About the Apartment ~~

Up the elevator to the 15th floor, down the hall, and walk in to your Seattle abode and relax. Everything you need is here to enjoy your stay in over 1000 square feet. Of course, free WiFi is included!

Living Room ~ The living room features a comfortable extra long sofa and is tastefully decorated in accent shades of blue/green. There is plenty of seating with 2 leather chairs as well. The high ceilings make it feel even more spacious along with the huge windows letting in tons of light. There is a 46 inch flat screen, stereo, and DVD player if you want to stay in for a night. Plenty of room for our queen sized Aerobed if you need extra sleeping space.

Kitchen/Dining ~ Right off the living room is the kitchen and dining, giving it the great room feel. The newly remodeled kitchen is fully equipped for all your cooking needs and features a breakfast bar with two stools. The clean white cabinets are set off by the jet black granite counter tops. The stainless appliances include a dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator and oven/stove. Between the kitchen and living area is the dining area for six. And don't forget to check out the city and water views from the kitchen window!

Balcony & Views ~ Watch the ferries coming and going from your private balcony . To the east, enjoy the city views. To the west, see the waters of Elliott Bay, and to the south, check out the stadiums. The balcony itself faces south.

Master Bedroom & Bath ~ A huge room, large enough for a comfortable king-sized bed, you will love the private bedroom. A dresser for all your things, not to mention a large closet! Luxurious bedding in a neutral palette only adds to the beautiful contemporary decor in this room. And don't forget the 37 inch flat screen TV and DVD player. Past the closets, you'll find your private bath, complete with tub/shower and plenty of counter and cabinet space. It is also remodeled with granite counter tops and includes towels, soaps, shampoo and a wall-mount hairdryer.

Second Bedroom ~ Opposite side of the unit from the master bedroom for plenty of privacy is the 2nd bedroom featuring a queen bed and nightstands and a walk-in closet with dresser. The second full bath is just outside this bedroom as well.

Main Bathroom ~ Also spacious is the full bath with tub/shower, which is also remodeled with granite counter tops.

Great location, great apartment

  • 5 of 5

We really liked this place. Very close to Pike Market, the Great Wheel, the Seattle Art Museum, Starbucks, restaurants, small market, etc. 24-hour concierge makes it easy to get/leave keys (be sure to read instructions so you & your luggage end up on the right street for check-in). The unit is very clean & well-stocked. The LR/DR area is rather small so it is perfect for a couple, would be a bit cramped for more. There is a freeway very close but we weren’t bothered by its noise, just considered it part of the urban experience. Would totally stay here again.

Great place, don't go when its hot

  • 4 of 5

The room and complex was really nice. The bed was great the room was great the pool was fun. Would have given 5 stars if it had air conditioning. Due to the weather our stay was horrible, we didn't sleep at all, the room was near 90 degrees at night, it was terrible. So for regular weather, enjoy this place, it would be great. Because its a vacation rental, this could be easily solved if the owner would put one rolling air conditioner with the pipe on the window in the living room and one in the master bedroom during heat waves. They make ample money to spend the $700 ($350/each) on them and have them installed during those times so guests can have a comfortable stay. In normal 50s and 60s temps we would for sure stay here again. In the heat we would never stay here.

Owner's Response: We are glad this guest had a good time. We are very clear on our listing (and our rental agreement, and arrival info) that we do not have AC. Same as 85% of Seattle area residences without AC. So they were fully aware when booking. They were here during unusually hot weather for Seattle. Normal highs that time of year would be low to mid 70's. I also find it a bit presumptuous that they say we make "ample money". Picture Properties is just me (Debra) with no employees. I work from home in order to be there for our 3 kids. We work extremely hard to make our guests' stays the best they can be. You cannot have an AC unit at Harbor Steps where you just leave the window open at all times for it to drain, unfortunately. So it's a little more complicated (and a LOT more money). Please let us know if you have questions, and please read through all our reviews. We have 10 other units also at Harbor Steps with plenty of "summertime" reviews. If you are very concerned, I would suggest you book a hotel that has AC. Thank you! Debra, Picture Properties owner

Perfect Location

  • 4 of 5

Apartment was very nice and centrally located to all attractions. The only reason why I'm not rating this 5 stars is due to the one of the rude concierges at the desk named Ava or maybe Eva. On the other hand Lucy was very helpful and assisted us in whatever needed from calling a cab, printing out tickets or making dinner reservations. I would definitely rent this apartment again.

Owner's Response: We are very sorry to hear that this guest had a bad experience with someone at the front desk. I'm not sure what happened, but usually people mention how helpful all the Harbor Steps staff are. Of course, they do not work for Picture Properties, and all the experiences this guest had with Picture Properties were pleasant. I will follow up. Thanks! Debra, Picture Properties

Excellent location downtown Seattle...close to everything.

  • 5 of 5

Safe location close to all in downtown Seattle. Lots of great restaurants, shops and activities all nearby. Walked everywhere but there is a garage underground if needed. Very comfortable, clean and well equipped two bedroom for family of four (also have use of an airbed). Plenty of fans for the warmer summer months. Would definitely stay there again.
