Truth In Advertising

This home absolutely lives up to it's description. It's well maintained, the location is terrific, the deck is something special and the owner is very responsive. We easily walked to downtown, The Frye Museum, Volunteer Park, and the Asian Art Museum. There are many good restaurants in the area as well as numerous food stores and coffee shops.
I slept like a rock in the king bed.

Excellent place to stay in Seattle

  • 5 of 5
I stayed with my wife and children for a bit over a week, and we loved it. The interior was well-maintained and immaculately clean, and everything had a thoughtful touch to it. It is in a nice neighborhood relatively close to most major tourist sites (about a 20 min. walk or short bus ride) to downtown, the Space Needle, or Pike's Place market, and 10 minutes or less to a number of restaurants or grocery stores. We enjoyed the patio immensely.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5
This was our first experience with a vacation rental. Tired of the hotel scene and wanting to experience Seattle as our own town, we are happy to have found Harrison Modern and have already made plans to return. The apartment is even better than described in prose and photos - the rooftop deck is very special. Its location is perfect - close to Capitol Hill action but also near quiet, tree-lined streets, Volunteer Park, the Arboretum (a good run away) and walking distance to downtown. Added touches like discount cards for local supermarkets and a collection of books to read were appreciated. We took advantage of Ian's suggestion and tried La Spiga for dinner one night and were pleased. Our contact with Ian before, during and after our stay answered all of our questions and made us feel very welcome. This apartment suited our love of spaces that are open, airy, light and clean. There were even outdoor plants to water. We have found a new home away from home.

Wonderful Seattle Apt

  • 5 of 5
Absolutely loved this place! It's located in a great area of Capital Hill with lots of shops and restaurants right down the block. We were also able to walk downtown and to Pike Place Market in under 30 mins. The apartment itself is very tastefully furnished with a large kitchen/living room area that opens up onto a beautiful balcony. Would definitely stay here again and would recommend this place to anybody going to stay in Seattle.

Stayed for a month

  • 5 of 5
We are Seattleites who stayed here while on a break from our around-the-world tour. We stayed here for a month. The apartment was very well laid-out and convenient. The location was excellent and the view from the deck was great. It might be a small detail, but the laundry machines were the best we've ever used. :)

Location

From the Owner

Seattle is a vibrant city full of amazing sights from world class architecture, vibrant arts scene, to spectacular outdoor activities. Capitol Hill, is the perfect location to explore all Seattle and everything the region has to offer. If you are not traveling outside the city you won't need a car, everything is within an easy walk or a short bus ride. Within 3 short blocks of the building are a a number of great restaurants, shops and cafes, 2 supermarkets and 3 wonderful city parks. Capitol Hill is a rich, diverse, neighborhood with multi million mansions and a wonderful farmers market within blocks of each other. One thing I am sure about... You will love the location. I have done a lot of traveling and believe that Seattle and the Pacific North West is one of the most beautiful, livable, areas in the North America.
