~~ About the Apartment ~~

Up the elevator to the 15th floor, a few shorts steps, and walk in to your Seattle abode and relax. Everything you need is here to enjoy your stay in over 1350 square feet. Of course, free wifi is included!

Living Room ~ The living room features a sofa and love seat, and is tastefully decorated in neutral shades of tan and lovely aquas and teals (w/ punches of red/orange shades!). The open floor plan and high ceilings make it feel even more spacious. You won't miss the tremendous water views from the dining area, balcony, living room, and master bedroom. There is a flat screen TV if you want to stay in for a night. Plenty of room for our queen sized Aerobed if you need extra sleeping space (no sleeper sofa).

Kitchen ~ Right off the living room is the kitchen, giving it the great room feel. The remodeled kitchen is fully equipped for all your cooking needs and features a breakfast bar with stools. The clean white cabinets are set off by the gray quartz counter tops. The stainless appliances include a dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator and oven/stove.

Dining ~ Strategically placed by the windows to take in the amazing views, relax at our table (seating four) with your morning coffee or enjoy any meal while gazing at the gorgeous view of Puget Sound's Elliott Bay, the Seattle Great Wheel, ferries, and the Olympic Mountains.

Balcony ~ The balcony is just off the living area, and looks over the NW tower (15 stories up) to Puget Sound's beautiful Elliott Bay. There are chairs and a small table out there for hanging out with family and friends. The views are great and you are right in the city!

Master Bedroom & Bath ~ The master bedroom is large enough for a comfortable king-sized bed, you will love the private bedroom. A dresser for all your things, not to mention closet space. Aqua, tan, white luxurious bedding only adds to the beautiful contemporary decor in this room. And don't forget the flat screen TV. Past the closet, you'll find your private bath, complete with tub/shower and plenty of counter and cabinet space. It is also remodeled with gray quartz counter tops and includes towels, soaps, shampoo, conditioner, and a hairdryer.

Second Bedroom ~ Opposite side of the unit from the master bedroom is the 2nd bedroom featuring a queen bed, nightstands, large dresser and a good sized closet. The second full bath is just outside this bedroom.

Main Bathroom ~ Also spacious is the full bath with tub/shower, which is also remodeled with quartz counter tops. The blue/aqua tones are carried throughout the apartment, including the lovely bathroom. Plush towels and even soaps and shampoo are supplied as well as a hair dryer.

Third "Bedroom" or den ~ Not a true bedroom with a door, but an additional sleeping space outside the 2nd bedroom and bathroom (across from kitchen - see floor plan photo).

It couldn't have been better...

  • 5 of 5

The Harbor Steps property was possibly the best condo we have ever rented. Very affordable compared to other properties in the area. We walked to CenturyLink Field, Washington Square, the Space Needle, the Aquarium, and Pike's Place Market, so we were able to park our car (for a very reasonable rate) and just leave it so we didn't have to deal with city traffic all weekend.

The floor plan was perfect for two couples. One got a bedroom with a private bathroom, the other got a bigger room with a tv (and a bathroom across the hall). The rooms are on opposite sides of the condo so there was a lot of privacy.

We found the instructions for everything (location, keys, parking, entry/exit) to be very well explained and easy to follow.

We will definitely be back.
