As promised and what we were looking for.

  • 5 of 5

This 2 bedroom apartment was a great location for our family trip (2 adults, 19yr and 17 yr kids).

Debra was great to work with. All communication was timely and professional. Check in was fully explained ahead of arrival and very easy. We had no issues or questions during our stay so no need to communicate further while there.

The apartment is exactly as shown with plenty of room for 4. The views are amazing no matter the weather and we had all we needed for our stay. We did not have a car and were happy not dealing with traffic (We planned use of a car2go or day rental for trips outside the city).

The apartment is clean, airy, well appointed and in a great location:

- 1 block walk from train and bus station.

- Easy commute from the airport via Link light rail ~$3.

- Walk to waterfront, Pike St. market, Pioneer Sq., shopping malls, restaurants.

- Also a great location for getting to the stadiums.

- restaurants and coffee shops on either side of Harbor Steps.

- there are some steep blocks depending on direction. Not quite San Francisco but some are close. We loved it but be aware if you have luggage. The block walk from the apt to train station is a bit uphill.

We had an amazing week exploring all areas of the city. Best of all - sunny skies and record high temps all week. Unbelievable weather!!

We would definitely stay here on future visits to Seattle.

Beautiful unit

  • 5 of 5

We were thrilled with our stay here! The views from this unit were even more gorgeous than the photos showed. Everything in the unit was as expected or better. At the time of booking, there were two twin beds in the second bedroom and Debra mentioned to me that they were considering switching those out for a queen bed prior to our stay. I was concerned about sleeping arrangements for my 3 children and half-jokingly stated I would be thrilled if they would wait until after our stay to do that. I have no idea if that was why the twin beds were still there when we arrived, but it was SO appreciated. She also had a twin memory foam mattress brought in for our 3 year old to use. Anyone traveling with small children understands that sleep is one of the greatest concerns, so I was so happy with her consideration!

Everything in the unit was well stocked, with extra supplies handy. Check-in and check-out directions were very clear and the concierge was friendly and helpful in storing our luggage after check-out.

This was our first experience with VRBO and it was definitely a great one. I would book with Debra and Picture Properties again without hesitation.

A+ views, location and experience

  • 5 of 5

The place you stay on vacation is so important and sets the tone for your trip. And when searching VRBO you hope you’ve come across that “just right” place. Well we found it for our downtown Seattle experience. We’re two couples who like adventuring together and this condo was ideal for experiencing all of downtown. No car needed. We took the Link from the SEATAC and walked two block to the condo. Then walked or took the monorail or Ubered all weekend.

Pictures Properties was great to work with. She put my mind at ease that things would be as advertised and they were. The views were amazing, beds comfortable with nice linens, kitchen just what we needed. Other condos units in this Harbor Steps building were available on VRBO but we much preferred working with Picture Properties. We’d go back and highley recommend to others.
