Great condo at a great price

  • of 5
My wife and I are retired seniors who travel on a budget. Seattle is one of our favorite places to visit because we have family here and love the Northwest. We were lucky to find this wonderful condo at almost the last minute and snapped it up for a two week visit. We loved it. Roomy and very bright, the large one-bedroom space was perfect for our needs. We have stayed in many VRBOs and this is the cleanest one ever. Great job, Tom!
The bed was very comfortable, the shower was spotless and had great water pressure, the appliances weren't new but worked fine, and the free guest laundry really helped us out since we were there so long.
The owner, Ian, was a great host and he has a vast collection of tourist guides and maps. The location near Broadway was perfect and we took the bus or light rail everywhere. Leave the car rental budget for the great dining nearby and don't bother to rent one. There are a lot of great places to eat within an easy walk and the bus stop is three blocks away. Check out www.metro.kingcounty.com for the senior discount card and you can go anywhere for 75 cents. Use the PLAN A TRIP box and it will tell you what public transit to take from one spot to another.
Overall, we rated this rental as excellent with only two very minor cautions for certain people. It is a little noisy from the street traffic so it is not recommended for very light sleepers, and it only has very basic cable so bring a computer with Netflix or Hulu if you crave video content. We were too busy to watch TV anyway.
Thanks, Ian and Tom. We loved it and will call when we are back in Seattle. M & D

Came to Seattle for the arrival of our new Granddaughter

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay at the Harrison Modern! Perfect location, walking distance to everything! Our trip was spontaneous, as the baby came a week early. Not only was this apartment fully stocked and spacious, but Ian
got back with me within minutes, making it possible to for us to occupy within the hour! Not the case with everyone, could take up to a couple days for the owner to confirm dates and reservation. I will definitely be back!
Thank you so much!

Cute and Clean!!!

  • 4 of 5
The space was very cute and super clean. Our only complaint is staying in this condo is on the 12th street side and it's extremely loud. We have stayed in the condo on the Harrison street side and it was much better. We would highly recommend they invest in some better windows other than that it's in walking distance to everything and less than a 10 min cab ride to downtown.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. I understand you were unhappy that we were not able to accommodate you in our South Pacific suite where you usually stay....To clarify: ALL the windows in the building are all double glazed and are about 20 years old. Granted, 12th ave E is a busy street compared to Harrison St. We have an inner-city location that is hard to beat, there will be some traffic and neighborhood noise.

Arizona family spending Christmas in Seattle

  • 5 of 5
We live in Arizona, but our kids live in Seattle and Portland - so, we had to make a new plan for Christmas this year. We looked at over 20 properties, going back and forth, trying to configure how to get 7 people into a spacious enough unit to enjoy a Christmas dinner together, and the Harrison unit accommodated us hands down!! Only 1 of the kids and her friend actually stayed with us for 3 nights, but the other kids came back and forth, depending on their work schedule, for breakfast or dinner, or just to hand out. It was truly an awesome location, saving us on Christmas eve when we needed the bulk of our groceries to prepare Christmas dinner, and the QVC grocery store within walking distance was just the ticket .... we even carried the full bags on foot, back to the condo. I would book one of these units again in a heartbeat, and this was my first time using a internet home rental. I was totally pleased and recommend it to anyone, especially if you need a good base camp to travel around the town from. The best part, what the description says it is ..... IT IS!!! Thanks for being honest and accurate.

Wonderful place in a great location

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic time staying at the Harrison. The location is convenient enough to walk to everything, yet far enough from the night life to get a pleasant nights sleep. The apartment is comfortable, sizable, and cleanly appointed.
My wife and I walked all the way downtown and back twice over during our stay. We went out for drinks on New Years Eve and had a ton of places to chose from.
HIGHLY recommend.

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.
