Canadian transplanted in Seattle
My wife and I stayed a month at Brent's loft while house hunting in downtown Seattle. It turned out to be a great choice.
First of all the location; walking distance to Downtown, Belltown, Westlake, Pike Place, the ferry to Bainbridge Island, Seattle Art Museum, light rail to the airport, major bus lines, and more.
While you can do most everything on foot or by transit, occasionally we wanted our own car. Turns out there are three Zipcars located directly across the street. We were able to leave the apartment and be in a short term rental car in less than 5 minutes...I don't know how it could be any easier..
As far as restaurants go, my neighborhood favorite was Bambino's pizza, just one block away. Their 4pm Happy Hour became a habit. Another great choice is Local 360 down on 1st Avenue. And if you're into Thai food, try the newly opened Fish Cake Factory on 4th Avenue...their curries (and everything else we had) were superb.
Brent's an easygoing host, the loft is fully equipped, and the people in the building are friendly. Enjoy!
Very clean and neat apartment in an ideal location. Comfortable amenities and flexible host. Would recommend a stay here.
Great loft. Very comfortable.
Great location, right next to Space Needle and walking distance to Pike Place Market.
Definitely I would stay there again!
Brent's place is in a perfect location-- within walking distance to so many great downtown destinations (space needle, experience music project, pike's place market, the waterfront...) we appreciated the comfy couch and lots of movie/TV show choices for when we just had to veg. the water view added so much to the loft and the rooftop patio is gorgeous. we loved how the concierge graciously opened the front door for us every time we approach it. we frequented local businesses to ensure our "resident" experience (don't miss these: bedlam for coffee; 5-point for breakfast; local 360 for lunch/dinner and bloody mary's complete with a garnish of thick-cut bacon... Brent is a friendly, responsive and accommodating host. it felt like we were staying at a friend's place and we would definitely stay here again!
Brent's place is nice, good view and convinient to park and pulic trans. We like it it a lot during our stayed, except, one thing we could not watched tv, or any other programs that he had offered because, we could not figure out how to get it start or may be it was too complicated for us, which we do not know much of technology.
Wonderful apartment, with a great view in a nice location. Nearly everything we wanted to do was within walking distance. Clean, modern space, and very comfortable. Would certainly stay again.
