About this listing
Apartment in the heart of downtown Seattle. Perfect for business travel or vacations. Close to conventions centers and shopping.
Located one block from Pike Place market. Instead of staying in hotels 6-10 blocks away from the market; save your money for the hundreds of great restaurants, bars and sporting events in downtown Seattle. Stadiums are a 20 minute walk ($7 cab ride), water front is a 5 minute walk and the shopping district is about 10 minutes on foot. Easy access from airport either by light rail ($2.75) or cab ($35).
Clean modern condo. Cozy living room with modern amenities. A small water view from the deck. Living room is equipped with a flat screen TV and home theater system in case you want to catch your favorite ball game or stay in and watch a movie. Fully equipped kitchen and yes you can prepare meals if you would like (see rules). Queen size bed in the loft bedroom (separate from living room).
There are lots of parking options you can choose from. Several paid parking garages and surface lots below my unit and adjacent to my block. Price ranges from $8 a day (early bird special and you can't come and go) to $22 for overnight. Lots of options you just need to pick whats best for you. Also, paid meters around my building.
Guests have access to pretty much all my apartment has to offer. Off limit items are my personal alchohol, my closet and renting movies on OnDemand.
Interaction with Guests
I prefer e-mail and I rarely interact with guests for check-in and check-outs.
Pike Place Market neighborhood is in the heart of the city. Everything is literally a 10 minute walk from my apartment.
The bus system in Seattle is actually really good and easy to use. Link light rail is also just a few blocks away and is the cheapest way to get to the airport.
In order for me to consider your reservation you must have a complete profile completed (identity verification, photo and etc per Airbnbs suggestion).
This is not a party spot. Neighbors are to be respected and apartment should be quit after 10pm. My Personal alcohol and food is off limits. Exception is condiments, seasonings/spices and what not. Feel free to bring your own food and alcohol (the market next door has great shopping options). Condo has maple floors so if you are wearing small spiked stilettos please take them off at the door.
Kitchen clean up is not included in cleaning fee. Knives and pans are not dishwasher safe and must be hand washed. Dishes and stove top are to be cleaned by the guest. Please clean out fridge of food that you purchased.
NO SMOKING...smoking will result in loss of damage deposit.
Alan was a great host. Picking up the keys was very easy, communication was prompt and the apartment very clean. The location is fantastic...seconds away from food heaven a.k.a. Pike's Place Market.
Alan was a great host and his apartment was incredible. I messaged him about 2 days before going to Seattle and he in that short amount of time arranged for me arrival. His apartment has a great location and is beautifully decorated. The balcony is also a wonderful way to sit outside and see/hear the city at night. A+
Alan's place was clean and exactly as appeared in photos. Key pickup arrangement was flawless, on route and took no time at all. Best of all was the location, pike place market was literally steps away. Alan was also prompt to respond to any questions asked and made my first airbnb booking as easy as possible. Thanks.
Alan was very honest and upfront about his expectations and his apartment was very neat and clean. The location was amazing for us as we were spending most of our time in the downtown area. He arranged an easy way for us to get keys as he was not in town for our arrival. An awesome spot and I would definitely recommend anyone looking to stay in the area so check in with Alan. He was quick to respond to all my inquiries and made my first airbnb experience a good one.
I had a great experience. The location of the apartment is literally next to Pike's Place Market: Just far enough to be away from the tourists but close enough to walk there in 3 minutes. My meals all came from there during my visit. The apartment was a perfect place to relax and was very homey.
Location location location. This place is the perfect one bedroom spot right down the street from the market, ferris wheel and all of the action. It was clean, with all of the amenities needed. Alan was accessible, responsive and communicated expectations very well.
Our first experience using Airbnb was great! My husband and I were coming to Seattle for the first time to visit friends over the weekend and stayed in Alan's place. He was a great host, responding to all our questions quickly and making it easy for us to pick up keys. The apartment was terrific, the perfect location to base ourselves in Seattle, convenient to transportation and lots of sights, including of course Pike Place Market. The apartment was very comfortable -- more than enough space for just the two of us!
