Fantastic top of the the world views... and great location close to market, restaurants and waterfront.

The unit itself and communications with Vacasa was a different story.

Kitchen rangetop has large crack in it (glass top), which cracked even further when we tried to use it. Kitchen is poorly equipped, so plan on take-out unless you plan on microwave meals or sandwiches. Bedding was stained and musty smelling and extra blankets in the closet smelled of perspiration and funk (for lack of a better word). The master bedroom had a rank oder, not sure whether it was from bedding, HVAC system or plumbing. Was also told by Vacasa customer service we could make arrangements with parking manager for an additional car, prior to booking. And that the range had been replaced (I asked bc of past reviews). She put me on hold while she called the owner to confirm. Someone clearly lied. On our day of arrival I received a welcome text from Tony at Vacasa, but when I asked about parking was told that no additional parking was allowed, and that without written documentation of the conversation (how do you do that??), I had no recourse. This was a work retreat and I wouldn't have booked the unit without planning for parking and meals. Tony gave me the name and number of the parking manager so I could make arrangements for pay parking, but he never answered the phone or responded back to texts or voicemails. It cost us $108 for 36 hours of parking (even though the advertised rate was $30 per 24 hours). Plus we spend hundreds on take-out due to oven not working. My company ended up way over budget due in spite of my efforts to make sure everything was buttoned up prior to booking.

Tony, who was communicative on the day of check-in, went off the grid as well, until 2 days after we checked out. Our small team travels often, but will NEVER book through Vacasa again.
Manager response:
Thank you for letting us know about your experience, Ramona! Our property manager did advise you only one parking spot comes with the reservation and any additional parking would have to be paid for. We apologize if there was any miscommunication on that front. The glass top does have a slight crack, but everything is still fully functional. New glass has been ordered and will be installed when it arrives. We are sorry to read you had a negative experience with us and do hope to have a chance to impress you in the future.

We are locals but wanted to get away in the time of Covid from the Eastside. Originally rented to use the pool but due to Covid the pool was closed. We still had a good time. Comfortable penthouse with good views of the Sound. Close to Pikes and great coffee at Fontes. Stayed for New Years and got a view of fireworks on the horizon! The only cons are the kitchen isn’t stocked so don’t expect to cook (stove has a giant crack in it too). The second bedroom has not so great a mattress.
Manager response:
Hello Snesha, thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We do have a replacement stove ordered. We apologize for the inconvenience and hope we can host you again!

Loved the view, the space the comfy beds, the location. It was a perfect place for a women's reunion! Thanks!

Great place for hosting, larger than it looks. Beautiful views
Kristin M. Mar 2020
Even with an endless amount of things to do nearby it was hard to leave the apartment. The view is fantastic!! The kitchen is well stocked and we were able to cook and bake pretty much everything me wanted.
John K. Jan 2020
My in laws really enjoyed the place! It was nice and clean, and had everything they needed. The parking garage was a little bit tricky, but I think they all are downtown.

Jill S. Sep 2019
Loved this place, spectacular views, beautiful and spacious, and the location can't be beat.

We loved the location and view of this property. The only issue we had was in leaving, you need to use the key to get to the garage and you are turn the keys into the concierges! You can’t turn in the keys and then get out of the garage. It would be nice to be able to pull out of the garage and just get on the toad considering the garage is a couple streets away from the concierge. It it was a small inconvenience. It was a great stay.

Couldn’t have a better location. We walked everywhere with total ease. The Rolling Stones played at the Seahawks stadium and took us 16mins to walk there. 1st ave is filled with amazing little joints to hang in. And the penthouse suite FAR surpassed our wildest dreams. Worth every penny!!!

We loved the Harbor Steps penthouse condo for its great views of the Harbor and waterfront as well as its location. We were within walking distance of the best Seattle has to offer...attractions, restaurants, and shopping. The unit had great views including Mt. Rainer, Elliot Bay, and the waterfront. Our family of four adults were comfortable with the spaciousness of the condo.

Wonderfully beautiful well appointed home. Close to EVERYTHING and such an amazing view. Pictures do not do this justice. Very clean and nice. Has everything you need to have a vacation of a lifetime! Cold AC too!! Love love love!!!

This is the second time I have stayed in the apartment. I cannot fault it. The location in Belltown is great with loads of funky bars on the doorstep but only 15mins walk from downtown. There is a fantastic (and genuinely French) Boulangerie right next door. The viowes are amazing - look right - there's the space needle, straight ahead (from the balcony) a panorama of Puget sound. And Rainer to the left. For 5 sharing it was a lot cheaper than a hotel and better in every way. Love this apartment and will stay here next time I come to my favourite US city.

Our 4 night stay was really nice. We could walk to almost all the things we had planned and the view was spectacular. The concierge was helpful and very friendly. There is nothing I could recommend that would have made it any better.
Lauren . Feb 2019
Amazing views! The condo was perfect for our group of 8. Plenty of space and nice kitchen.
Sandra . Feb 2019
Beautiful views from the 25th floor! Be sure and be there for the fireworks show from the Space Needle!

Great location and gorgeous views. Easy , clear communication with company. We had a very nice time in Seattle at this place for 4 days. Clean. Well stocked. No issues.
Wendy . Jul 2018
This place had great views and common spaces. The master was spacious. The two additional rooms are on the small side. A nice place for a family trip to Seattle.
Travis . Jun 2018
What can I say? The views are just amazing! All of Elliot bay through 1 set of windows, watching all the ships go by, and the Space Needle out the other windows. Decor was very nice and adequately supplied. Right in the middle of town. Walk to the Pike Place Market in 1 direction. Seattle Center in the other. Not to mention all the close by restaurants on 1st Ave. It was nice to have secure parking in the garage as well. Would definitely stay again!

:Awesome!! Amazing location. Clean, well equipped, and nicely decorated. We walked to Pike Market, Seattle center & the wharf easily. Phenomenal views from all windows!! Perfect vacation rental!
. Jul 2016
Overall good location and nice condo. Well equipped kitchen and baths. Very clean. Worked well for our family. Great view of the waterfront and Space Needle. Nicely decorated older building with portable AC in the unit. Only negative was hot tub out of service and maintenance being done on deck and patio.

The views from this condo are not capturable with pictures. The perfect location. We had a rental van for our weekend and ended up leaving it parked. We walked to breakfast and lunch and all the top sites. There's a great French bakery next door! I can't say enough about this rental. Beautiful and peaceful and made our first stay in Seattle full of memories and we can't wait to come back! Will for sure be back to this exact rental!
