John W. from Troutdale, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in April, 2016 Our second time in this great place, loved it again. Very central, great walks, all that and more. Really like this place and will stay here again. And, we knew that the sofa is slippery, but forgot, remembered to bring our own pans and knives, will remember to bring some glasses to leave behind. Built in the early 50's I'm told, staying there is a treat.
Property Manager Response: Response from Sea to Sky Rentals, LLC John, thanks for being such a great guest, we appreciate you staying with us again and sharing your feedback! We will look into restocking pans, knives and glasses right away. Thanks again and we look forward to having you back for the third time sometime soon! Very best, Sea to Sky Rentals
A guest from Kailua, HI recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2016 Property was clean and well-maintained. Property management staff was accessible, very professional and helpful. Excellent choice if you want to easy access to downtown Seattle venues - great retail and restaurant choices (walking and public transit makes this a great location)
Property Manager Response: Response from Sea to Sky Rentals, LLC Thanks so much Michael, delighted you enjoyed our rental & guest service! We appreciate the kind review. Cheers, Sea to Sky Rentals
A guest from Portland, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in February, 2016 A friend and I stayed 4 nights and enjoyed this modestly-sized flat. Pros: great location, many tasty restaurant options nearby, updated apartment in older building, attractive decor, decently set up for light cooking, quiet neighbors, clean and fresh.Cons: freeway noise, radiant heat is noisy in early AM, uncomfortable couch with no alternative seating except dining chairs, portable air conditioner prevents closing window blind for privacy.Overall, a great location and generally nice accommodation, but if you are a light sleeper it is likely to be too noisy, especially in summer. I would happily stay again, but I know my husband would not sleep well enough.
Property Manager Response: Response from Sea to Sky Rentals, LLC Hello Jane and thank you for choosing Sea to Sky Rentals for your Seattle accommodations! We appreciate the thorough review and are so glad you enjoyed the convenience and decor of the Hillside Flat. We work our hardest to make our rentals comfortable for guests, and as the Elektra building is not equipped with central A/C (like the majority of Seattle residences), we installed the portable unit for our guests' comfort. Unfortunately with the fantastic location of the Flat does come a little traffic noise, and I hope you were able to get good rest in spite of it. We'd love to have you back at this or any of our other 40 Seattle-area rentals! Very best, Sea to Sky
Marie L. from Cecil Hills, NSW recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in January, 2016 Had a ten day stay,found the position perfect,was clean,roomy and overall a great experience.
Property Manager Response: Response from Sea to Sky Rentals, LLC Hello Marie! Thank you for choosing Sea to Sky Rentals and sharing your feedback about your stay. So happy to hear that you enjoyed your time at the Hillside Flat. Very best, Sea to Sky Rentals
A guest from Arvada, CO recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in December, 2015 This property was adequate for our needs. Walking distance to all of the attractions and all that downtown has to offer. We did not need a car.
Property Manager Response: Response from Sea to Sky Rentals, LLC Hello Chris, very glad that our Hillside Flat accommodated you comfortably! We hope to have you back for your next trip to Seattle. Best, Sea to Sky Rentals
A guest from Mililani, HI does not recommend this property. Stayed for 7 days in December, 2015 My family stayed here because of the very convenient distance from popular sites in Seattle. Turns out, that was the places only appeal. The place was awkward to get into for us, and extremely difficult to find for anyone we tried to meet up with. The quality of amenities was poor at best. The elevator constantly smelled like weed. When they say there is only one parking spot for you they mean it. Friends had to park in a very shady area quite a bit away. The heating system is awful and was either blistering or freezing with little to no control over which. Furniture was the most uncomfortable I think they could possibly find. Definitely only stay here if you're planning to be out most your stay.
Property Manager Response: Response from Sea to Sky Rentals, LLC Hello Brittny and thank you for sharing your feedback regarding your stay at the Elektra Hillside Flat. We are very sorry the experience wasn't better, but we would love to discuss this with you directly in further detail so that we can improve however possible! Feel free to contact us by phone or email any time. Best, Sea to Sky Rentals
A guest from Saint Paul, MN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in November, 2015 The condo was as described on the website, though the pictures shows the living area with way more light than the room actually has. The couch was very uncomfortable and had lighting for only one person to read. Two sets of keys were provided, but since there were three of us, that meant some juggling and planning. The area is well located (the Starbucks mothership is just up the street and downtown Seattle is just down the same street, Pike), but next to a noisy freeway. Luckily, it was cool when we visited and it was convenient to keep the windows closed. The building has a rooftop walkway with a spectacular view of downtown Seattle, day and night. The front desk is manned just a few hours a day and a rather stern notes tells the occupants not to call the contact number unless there's a flood or fire. There have apparently been break-ins in the neighborhood, so security is strict. Make sure you have the arrival instructions clear. Our flight was early in the day, and we called the Sea to Sky number and left a message to see if we could get in early, but only when we called back at 4 p.m. did we make actual contact.The table is glass and very noisy, but we couldn't find any place mats. Paper towels did the trick. So, quite a few little things were odd or inconvenient, but overall, despite that, we enjoyed our stay and the city. Homelessness is a serious problem that Seattle is working on. Expect to step over people sleeping in doorways and sidewalks throughout the area. We came home and made a donation to the Plymouth nonprofit that works to provide housing there.
Property Manager Response: Response from Sea to Sky Rentals, LLC Hello Gretchen - We're glad to hear you enjoyed Elektra's great location! Thanks for taking the time to write us a review. We look forward to having you stay with us again the next time you're in Seattle. Returning guests get 5% off any future stay! Best, Sea to Sky Rentals
Brian K. from Green Cove Springs, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in October, 2015 I loved the location next to the convention center and that was what was most important to me. The kitchen was recently renovated and in great condition. The only negative that was a huge issue was the heater decompressed every morning at 6am and when it did that it sounded like a hammer against railing. It woke up the entire condo each morning better than an alarm.
Property Manager Response: Response from Sea to Sky Rentals, LLC Hi Brian - We're thrilled the Elektra's location and amenities made for a great stay in Seattle! I've passed on your feedback about the heater to my property care team. We look forward to seeing you again the next time you're in Seattle. Warmly, Sea to Sky Rentals
Anna L. from Los Angeles, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in October, 2015 Very Nice Place
Property Manager Response: Response from Sea to Sky Rentals, LLC Hi Anna - Thanks for taking the time to write us a review. It's wonderful to hear you had a nice stay at the Elektra! You were a lovely guest, and it would be a pleasure to have you back anytime. Warmly, Sea to Sky Rentals
Lisa B. from Austin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in October, 2015 Nice and clean; cannot beat the location. Only complaint was that the Heat was difficult to control in second bedroom - very stuffy. A ceiling fan would do wonders in bedrooms. We were met by a super friendly and helpful person who made us feel very welcome.
Property Manager Response: Response from Sea to Sky Rentals, LLC Hello Lisa - We're so glad to here Elektra served you well as the launchpad for your Seattle vacation! We would have loved to come down and help you with the heat - we're here 7 days a week to help our guests with anything during their stays. We hope you'll stay with us again the next time you come to Seattle. Returning guests receive 5% off any future stay! Very best, Sea to Sky Rentals
Terry Z. from Cave Creek, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in September, 2015 Great stay. Nice property. Clean and well maintained as advertised. Terrific location. Easy walking distance to convention center, restaurants, shopping and attractions. Doug was very helpful on check-in. Highly recommend.
Property Manager Response: Response from Sea to Sky Rentals, LLC Dear Terry - It's so exciting to hear that you enjoyed your stay in Elektra with us! We're thrilled that you were able to take full advantage of the unit's great location and amenities. It would be our pleasure to host you again anytime! Best, Sea to Sky Rentals
A guest from Burnsville, MN recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in September, 2015 Easy walk to downtown or to Capital hill. Also close to transportation- light rail, monorail- Nice to have an enclosed garage at no additional cost. Good value for the price
Property Manager Response: Response from Sea to Sky Rentals, LLC Dear Mark, thanks for the great review and we hope to have you back for your next trip to Seattle! Very best, Sea to Sky Rentals
DeLynda G. from Abilene, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2015 We loved our first VRBO experience! Thr location was within walking distance of Pike Place market and so many other sights. Since we were traveling with our grown son, it was much cheaper than 2 hotel rooms. The property was clean and Doug was very helpful. We loved Tango, the tapas bar in one block.
Property Manager Response: Response from Sea to Sky Rentals, LLC Hi DeLynda - Thanks for taking the time to write us a review! We loved having you and your family stay with us at Elektra this summer! Looking forward to having you all as guests again. Very best, Sea to Sky Rentals
A guest from Visalia, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2015 Traveling with a teenage daughter and son makes it difficult to find accommodations. Hotels require two rooms because they don't want to share a bed so this apartment was great because there were twin beds in the 2nd bedroom. We didn't have a rental car (although there is free parking) so it was an easy walk to the light rail/monorail which is all you need to get just about anywhere. We even rode the light rail to/from the airport. Doug made check-in and check-out very easy. The Elektra is an older building but the apartment has been remodeled and well-maintained. The only downfall is that it is VERY close to the highway so it's a bit noisy with the windows open. I wish there had been screens on the windows too so the bugs didn't come in.
Property Manager Response: Response from Sea to Sky Rentals, LLC Hi Marti, We are so glad to hear you and your family enjoyed your stay at Elektra this summer! Thanks for taking the time to write us a review - we hope to see you next time you're in Seattle. Very best, Sea to Sky Rentals
Deen C. from Plateau Mont-Royal North Central, QC recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2015 The condo was exactly as described. The contact with Sea To Sky made everything easy. The location of the condo was great ! Downtown and walking distance from every main attraction in Seattle. I loved my experience !
Property Manager Response: Response from Sea to Sky Rentals, LLC Dear Deen, it was great to have you as our guest and we so appreciate the kind words. Thank you for staying at our Elektra #1411 and we hope to have you back again soon! Very best, Sea to Sky Rentals
John D. from Hillsboro, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2015 Staying at the centrally located Elektra puts everything (well most everything) within walking distance. The apartment was perfect for 3 adults and a teenager. It was clean, everything was in good shape and worked fine. Everything u would expect when renting a apartment on ur vacation. Only thing that could have been improved was if there were more flatware. A little skimpy on forks, lol. Also we never did find a glass measuring cup. But we survived just fine. When we return to Seattle, this will be an apartment we hope to rent again. I give it a double thumbs up.
Property Manager Response: Response from Sea to Sky Rentals, LLC Hello John and thank you for choosing Sea to Sky Rentals! It was great to have you stay with us and we really appreciate the kind review. We will definitely pass your comments about the flatware and measuring cup to our terrific property care team! We would love to have you back anytime, and remember, return guests get 5% off any stay! Very best, Sea to Sky Rentals

Property Manager Response: Response from Sea to Sky Rentals, LLC Thanks Juan for reviewing your stay with us! We hope to have you back again soon. Remember - return guests get 5% off any stay! Very best, Sea to Sky Rentals
Jason S. from San Francisco, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in October, 2014 The overall experience was very good. The check in process was seamless and Doug did a great job of showing me everything. A couple things, I'm not sure how this happened, but the first night, a yellow jacket somehow came into one of the bedrooms. That was a pleasant surprise to wake up to getting stung multiple times. Also, one of the last nights, I was bit by a bug (I think) in the face a few times. Not sure how either of these happened since we never opened any windows and just used the A/C instead.Overall the apartment was great and would likely stay there again
Property Manager Response: Response from Sea to Sky Rentals, LLC Hello Jason and thanks for choosing Sea to Sky Rentals! I'm very happy to hear that Doug was helpful in getting you settled in at Elektra 1411. So sorry about the yellow jacket and the bites - how strange! We will definitely keep our eyes out for any invaders in the future. I hope you are able to come back and stay with us again, and just so you know, repeat guests get 5% off all future stays! Contact us before you book to get this great discount. :) Very best, Sea to Sky Rentals
A guest from Tuscon, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 29 days in September, 2014 We lived in the Seattle area and returned for our first long visit during possibly the hottest summer on record. The unit has no central air conditioning and the portable unit let in most of the freeway noise. There is no garbage disposal in the kitchen sink and there is a bare minimum kitchen utensils and no microwave or oven dishes. Two kitchen electrical outlets did not work and there is a jumble of electrical wires/extension cords in every room.However, the location is convenient and the general condition/cleanliness was very good. We had good response from the office staff and the on-site manager.
Property Manager Response: Response from Sea to Sky Rentals, LLC Hello Larry, and thank you for staying with Sea to Sky Rentals. We really appreciate your detailed feedback and I will certainly pass your comments about the kitchen utensils, microwave, and baking dishes on to our Property Care team. We are lucky to live in Seattle for many reasons, including that our summers are typically very mild and the need for air conditioning is very rare - but it sounds like the timing of your visit was such that you caught the worst of the heat, and I'm sorry you found the air conditioning situation to be non-ideal. Unfortunately, the building policies for several of our units forbid central air conditioning, so we just have to make the best of it with our portable units. I'm glad you found our Guest Care team to be helpful and responsive, and I do hope that you will come back and stay with us again! Remember that our return guests get 5% off, so just give us a call when you make your next booking and we'll take good care of you. Very best, Sea to Sky Rentals
Very nicely located, and a great view from the roof-
A guest from Missoula, MT recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2014 This reasonably priced flat is situated in a perfect location for accessing downtown, Capitol Hill, and many other areas by foot. It's a real plus that there is a parking space available for the rental, which is hard to come by in urban Seattle.The rooftop deck provides an excellent sunrise/sunset view, and the building is an older one, but the apartment itself is updated. A wish list for this place would include a bathroom fan and a better fix for the washcloth holder in the shower/tub (the PVC pipe kept falling out). If you are there in the summer and sleep with the windows open, do be aware that ambient noise is noticeable.All in all, a good stay--thanks!
Property Manager Response: Response from Sea to Sky Rentals, LLC Hello Bryan and thank you for choosing Sea to Sky Rentals! We are very sorry that you found the unit outdated, but we're delighted that you enjoyed the fabulous location and the incredible view. I'm glad that the apartment was cleaned to your satisfaction as well. We will certainly pass on your suggestions about the bathroom fan and the washcloth holder to our property care team! Please feel free to reach out to us via phone or email with any additional feedback, as we appreciate any opportunity to improve our rentals and our customer service. And just so you know - we offer a 5% discount for all return guests, so you can enjoy some great savings next time you are in Seattle. Best, Sea to Sky Rentals
A guest from Chicago, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2014 Easy access to Capitol Hill, downtown, Puget Sound...excellent food and drink nearby, comfortable unit, and don't miss the roof!
Property Manager Response: Response from Sea to Sky Rentals, LLC Hello Susana, and thank you for staying with Sea to Sky Rentals. We enjoyed having you as our guest and we appreciate the lovely review! If you would like to contact us in greater detail about the cleanliness of the unit, please don't hesitate to do so as we appreciate any opportunity to improve our rentals and our customer service. Also, remember that our return guests get 5% off, so just give us a call when you make your next booking and we'll take good care of you. Very best, Sea to Sky Rentals
Mary J. from Ridgefield, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2014 The condo was good although the building it self was old and a bit run down. Our unit was clean however I would recommend another towel rack in the bathroom.
Perfectly located for attractions in the city of Seattle
Mary M. from SAINT CHARLES, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2014 We were there to show our 14 yerar old granddaughter around the city. Seattle has all the attractions for a typical 14 year old through typical active grandparents. We loved the rooftop and secure parking of this location. From our place we enjoyed shopping, Segway rentals the EMP and of course the Space needle and Ferry boat rides accross the sound. M,L and T.
A guest from Calgary, Alberta recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in July, 2014 Overall it was good and the location is a comfortable walking distance to downtown. Transit is close at hand, great restaurants, and it's easy to get to the sights of Seattle. The roof top is worth checking out. The building and apartment (especially the bathroom) are a bit dated but roomy and comfortable, although the spare bedroom was a bit dusty. The kitchen could have been supplied better with daily staples like sugar, salt and dishwasher tabs. Pots, pans and large knives had been extensively used so could use replacing. Loved having wireless and a complementary parking spot (often you pay extra for this when staying at a hotel in Seattle). We'd stay here again.
A guest from elmhurst, Illinois recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2014 Great experience with Sea to Sky from the folks who manage the rental process to the Elektra property itself. The condo was very quiet, in great shape, many 'extra touches' and the two bedrooms were perfect for my sister, the night owl and me, the morning person. Great location with easy walks to restaurants (Mamnoon, Sitka&Spruce), museums, music, Pike and Melrose markets, parks and of course,espresso (my favs - Victrola and Seattle Coffee Works). 5 blocks from light rail station that goes to airport. Have done other vacation rentals - Sea to Sky among the BEST.
Property Manager Response: Response from Sea to Sky Rentals, LLC I think Elektra is such a great place for so many reasons. Its location alone makes a stay here perfect! You have the quiet and safety of a side street but within walking distance of many Seattle hotspots, I am so thrilled you got to take advantage of so many of them! We'd love to have you stay with us again any time!
Karen V. from Anchorage, Alaska recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2014 The condo was in a great location, we had a car but didn't need it, you can walk everywhere. I enjoyed how the rental company communicated with me throughout the process, everything was made so easy, the APP is great also. There is everything you need in this condo, it was extremely comfortable. We arrived after 10pm and they met us right on time and gave us a quick tour around, very nice. Thank you
Property Manager Response: Response from Sea to Sky Rentals, LLC I really enjoyed getting the opportunity to meet you and your family! Im so thrilled you enjoyed yourselves. The Elektra #1411 is perfectly close to everything! We were and are more than happy to accommodate you and would love to have you all back again in the future!
Casie R. from Longview, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2014 I'm usually a pretty picky person, but I have no qualms with my stay. I loved everything about it :-)
Property Manager Response: Response from Sea to Sky Rentals, LLC I am so glad to hear you enjoyed yourself Casie! We enjoyed having you as our guest. The Elektra building is pretty spectacular, you made a great choice to call the building home while you were here! You are welcome any time, we'd love to have you back with us!
A guest from Fatima, Quebec recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in October, 2013 Excellent, i would recommend it to anyone visiting Seattle!!
Property Manager Response: Response from Sea to Sky Rentals, LLC Thank you for the great review! We would love to have you back next time you are in town and will offer you a 5% returning customer discount. Also, if you like us on Facebook you will be notified of any last minute deals and promotions we have going on!
Stephanie D. from Martinez, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2013 Rental agency -Professional from start. Very helpful. Location was ideal for the tourists areas- walked everywhere. Clean, we'll stocked apartment. Only items lacking was extra blankets for bedroom - first cold week in Seattle. Would come back
Property Manager Response: Response from Sea to Sky Rentals, LLC Thank you for taking the time to write us a review! You were a pleasure to have as guests as I remember checking you into the unit. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay and the apartment lived up to your expectations; however, I apologize that the blankets in the rooms were not enough for the change of season. This is a helpful suggestion for future guests- if there is anything that we can bring you to make your stay more comfortable such as, blankets, towels, toilet paper, etc. we would be more than happy to do so. We would love to have you back next time you are coming to town, don't forget to check out our Facebook page for upcoming deals and promotions.
A guest from Denver, CO recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2013 Ours was a girl's trip to Seattle. The condo worked well for our needs and is located within walking distance to almost all of the sights we wanted to see. My only suggestions would be for a window screen in the twin bed room. When you opened the window, there was nothing to stop anything from flying in or falling out. Also, some type of exaust fan in the bathroom would be beneficial. Since it is so humid, it is difficult to dry off or dress in the bathroom without the door being open. Maybe this wouldn't be a problem for a family, but it does with three friends who need privacy in the bathroom. Also, both elevators stopped working in the building. We climbed the stairs to the 4th floor and took the roof access elevator to our 14th floor, but this was not favorable after walking up and down hills in Seattle all day. I would also recommend some type of dresser or shelving unit in the twin bedroom. There is nothing to use for your clothes or packages from the days activities but the floor.
Property Manager Response: Response from Sea to Sky Rentals, LLC Thank you for you valuable suggestions. I will run them by the owner and see what we can do. I am so sorry that both elevators were out during your stay! The elevators have been replaced and hopefully will not be a problem in the future but I completely understand why walking up the stairs to the 4th floor wasn't ideal. We would love to have you back next time you are in town and will offer you a 5% returning customer discount!
Deborah M. from Rancho Palos Verde, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2013 This place is in a great location, was very comfortable, & no noise from neighbors. There was plenty of room for 4 adults, the kitchen was a perfect size, water pressure was great and the beds were very comfortable. The location was perfect, right next to the convention center, central to shopping, restaurants and tourist attractions. Also, loved the roof top deck.
Property Manager Response: Response from Sea to Sky Rentals, LLC Deborah thanks for writing such an awesome review! I am so happy you enjoyed your stay at Elektra! It looks like all the necessities were up to par for your stay. Next time you are heading to town check out our Facebook page for upcoming deals and promotions!
A guest from San Antonio, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2013 This condo was very conveniently located next to great restaurants and an easy walk to downtown. The only drawback was no comfortable seating. The sofa looks nice, but you slide off of it and there was not even a living room chair.
Property Manager Response: Response from Sea to Sky Rentals, LLC Thanks for taking the time to write us a review. I am happy to see you enjoyed the building's fantastic location! I will pass along your suggestion for a comfy living room chair, we appreciate your feedback! If you're back in town again, check out our Facebook page for upcoming deals and promotions!
Katherine B. from Denver, Colorado recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2013 This apartment was a great choice for our first visit to Seattle. The location was perfect! There was a market about a block away where we picked up everything we needed to make a nice breakfast. Also Taylor Shellfish Market and the Calf and the Kid Cheese shop was super close. There was a rooftop patio that was the ideal spot to watch the sunset too. The apartment itself was clean and there was plenty of space for the 4 of us. Overall, I highly recommend this as a great place to stay in Seattle and I hope to stay again soon!
Property Manager Response: Response from Sea To Sky Thanks for the great review Katherine! I am so happy to see you enjoyed Elektra #1411 and took advantage of the building's awesome location! We hope you stay with us next time your in Seattle. We will even offer you a 5% discount for returning!
Jay V. from Saskatoon, SK recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in May, 2013 A great place in a great location.The only minor issue that prevented me from giving 5 out of 5 stars in all categories is that the kitchen equipment (i.e. knives, pots and pans) could have been higher quality. Still, this is a very minor issue in a great place.
Property Manager Response: Response from Sea To Sky Thanks so much for your review and mentioning the pots and pans. We will definitely take a look at replacing items that are worn out. We hope you'll enjoy your next Seattle stay in Elektra #1411- don't forget our 5% Return Guest Discount!
Celine O. from Campbell River, BC recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2013 This was a real find! Close to downtown and easily accessible from the I5. A bit noisy at night as it's beside the Highway, but nothing horrendous. The administration should be aware that when you come from outside U.S. it is not so easy to find a phone to tell them you've arrived... it would be easier to just set a time to meet. Pay phones are not as available as they used to be... ;-) All in all a great stay.
Property Manager Response: Response from Sea To Sky Thank you for mentioning your issue with the phone. We try to make arrangements to check in our guests prior to your arrival, but depending on your travel plans that is not always the case. We are glad that overall you had a great stay!
Erica T. from Elkridge, Maryland recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in February, 2013 We can not be happier with our stay at the Elektra. The condo was spacious and very homey. It was truly a home away from home. I was there for a conference, and it was only 2 minutes from the convention center and everything downtown has to offer. Sea to Sky was so professional from the beginning to end. I love dealing with them. They answered to all my questions and requests immediately and the place was stocked with everything we need. Love Love my vacation. My family had a great time and we hope to be able to return soon.
Property Manager Response: Response from Sea To Sky Hello Erica! Wow! What a fantastic review! Thank you so much for your wonderful complements to the property and our staff! This is exactly the kind of 5 star review we strive for. We would love to have you and your family stay with us again at Elektra #1411.

A guest from Hamilton, XX recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in December, 2012 Building a little shabby but the apartment was clean and comfortable. Ideally placed for city exploration.
Property Manager Response: Response from Sea To Sky Hello David! Thank you so much for taking the time to provide a review of your stay at the Elektra! You're right; since the building was built in 1949 it is one of the more eclectic flats in downtown thankfully the location can't be beat! Not to mention that the condo has all the comforts of home. Come again and stay in #1411 and receive a 5% Return Guest Discount.
LAUREN G. from EUGENE, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in November, 2012 The condo was a great choice for us! The staff was great - meeting us to get in the condo and they brought us extra towels on a Saturday! The building is older so the elevators are slow and the freight elevator was under construction. We had a 4 am fire alarm our first night. The rest of our stay was awesome! Very clean and we loved having a kitchen to cook in for breakfast.
Property Manager Response: Response from Sea To Sky Hello Lauren! Thank you so much for taking the time to provide us with a review. Wow! A 4 alarm fire drill on your first night. Thank goodness it didn't happen first thing in the morning! Despite the fire alarm, I'm glad you were able to enjoy your stay at the Elektra. Please keep in mind that all of our return guests receive a 5% discount. Let us know when you plan to return. We would love to have you back!
Paul B. from Annerley, Queensland recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in October, 2012 We came to Seattle in autumn and chose the apartment at Elektra from the Internet web site: it proved to be a great choice. The apartment was clean with lots of hot water, a handy kitchen and comfortable beds. Just at the top of Pike St, Elektra was within walking distance of everything we wanted to see. A word of caution: the apartment is not new, the lift was slow, there is no laundry in the unit, the bathroom rather old fashioned and the storage space was limited. Our first reaction was a little reserved but the place certainly grew on us as the week went on and the blessings of its wonderful location was a source of constant delight. We'd certainly come back.

A guest from Fairfax, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2012 Elektra is an apartment building a couple of blocks from the Convention Center. The apartment was very comfortable and well furnished. The location is great, walking distance to downtown. The management company was very helpful, meeting us the evening we arrived to show us the apartment and helping with parking arrangements. I would definitely recommend the apartment and would stay there again.

A guest from Richland, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 30 days in April, 2012 Great location. Close to downtown, right next to the convention center, close to major hospitals, and easy access to I-5.
Grace S. from Port Moody, BC recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2012 Great location near the Convention Center; an easy short walk. Premises very clean and bright with everything one needed provided. The first night the apt was warm and the heater made loud clicking noises; turning the red button on the valve to the middle improved this and we were able to open the windows which helped as well. Also very pleased that it was non-smoking and smelled fresh and clean in the hallway and apartment.
A guest from Dallas, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in February, 2012 The condo well located, comfortable and adequate for our needs. Sea to Sky Rentals was accommodating and very responsive to us. They did a fine job.
Kenny C. from NEw Yotk, NY recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in December, 2011 Our apartment was set up absolutely perfectly for our 4-day stay. All the amenities of a hotel but in an apartment setting. We walked downtown and went shopping, good coffee up the street, great location directly off I-5. The building was fantastic, and the parking space in the garage is well worth the additional cost.
A guest from Centerville, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 29 days in September, 2011 As a student on clinical rotations from Ohio, I was looking for a place to stay near Swedish Medical Center First Hill and this was the place! It has very convenient access to the highways, downtown, Pike Place Market, etc. The light rail was extremely convenient when friends came to visit. When I arrived one of the lights had burned out and the toaster was broken, but Sea To Sky sent someone right away with a new toaster and to replace the light bulb. Highly recommend this location!!
A guest from Portland, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2011 I rented this property to attend a conference at the convention center and it couldn't have been more convenient! I really appreciated the professional property management and had a great rental experience. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property.
Brian S. from Glennallen, Alaska recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2011 Went down to Seattle for PAX 2011 this was a perfect location. Everyday I went onto the roof deck to check out the lines that were forming to see when it was safe to head down to the convention center. The room was really nice and being on the 14th floor coulden't hear any street traffic. Had a great time and will see if this is avaliable next year.
A guest from Norwich, VT recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2011 For a family of 4 it was a bit tight. But the location was great and it was well equipped, clean and safe. The roof-top deck is really small.
A guest from Turner, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2011 This condo was beautiful and clean and located in a perfect location. It is literally right next door to the Washington Convention Center where I was attending a conference. It is also a short and pleasant walk down to Pike's Market. The only hard thing for me to get used to, was the freeway noise when I had the windows open. However, overall it was great and I would definitely rent here again if I was coming back to Seattle.
Alvin C. from London, London recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in June, 2011 Clean, quiet, with useful touches around the apartments. Doug Fraser was helpful with the check-in. Would recommend!
A guest from Idaho Falls, ID does not recommend this property. Stayed for 6 days in January, 2011 The apartment has some mold issues. I am not sure you are aware that the plugs under the faucet handles (the old location) leak water, but the mold seemed to be more apparent in the kitchen and dining area, but I certainly could not find the source. I think some of your other units might be more to our liking if location had not been the issue. I certainly was impressed with your property managers, Julie especially. SO I would rent from you again, but not at that location. I am very allergic to mold and mildew.
A guest from Calgary, Alberta recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in November, 2010 traveller's need to be flexible to manage luggage between flights times and check-in/check-out times. No place to store luggage
Property Manager Response: Response from Sea To Sky Unfortunately, this building does not have a full time Concierge or a place to store luggage. We do our best to accommodate varying times of arrival and departure, although these arrangements need to be made in advance. Thank you for your comments.
Awesome location and great base for a stay in Seattle.
Philip B. from Byfleet, Surrey recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in October, 2010 Generally everything was great. The property is a little tired but overall fine. One poor thing though was the noise at 4am when the heating kicks in - it was like someone clanging pipes next to your ear for about 20 minutes in the middle of the night. Despite that we would definitely stay again purely based on location.
A guest from San Diego, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2010 overall this condo worked well for our girls trip. the property is on the older side but clean, in walking distance to downtown but if you open a window you can hear the freeway.
Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2010 Location, location, location! The condo was perfectly situated to the things we wanted to see and do around town. Having a kitchen and separate bedrooms was great, too, as we could spend time there and not feel cramped. We would rent this unit again in a heartbeat.
A guest from Buffalo Grove, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2010 I recently stayed here with my husband and another couple. It is a small place but a perfect home base for exploring Seattle. For $2.50 I took the train from the airport to the Westlake station which is about 6 blocks from the property. It was about 8 blocks from Pike Place Market, right by the convention center, and about a mile or so to the Space Needle. Taxis are readily available about a block away. I would stay here again.
A guest from Austin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2010 This condo is just a couple of blocks away from the heart of downtown- no problem to walk there. It's amazingly perfect if you're doing something in the convention center. Cute and comfortable- the bldg had a fun rooftop patio. Convenient to transportation of all types.
Great Location, great building and comfortable condos
A guest from Mercer Island, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in November, 2009 The staff at Sea to Sky was very helpful and personally checked us in. The apartment couldn't have been more comfortable and the fabulous location was an added bonus. We had family in town supporting a family member going through cancer surgery at Virginia Mason so being close to the hospitals and having a comfortable home to stay in were critical to their comfort and support in an otherwise difficult family time.
A guest from Farmington Hills, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 31 days in July, 2009 I wrote on the orange Evaluation sheet that I appreciated being furnished the various soap products, paper towels, good hair dryer, dishes, pots, extra towels, AC and fans in 102 degree heat. And having the garage was wonderful. Vacuum was missing parts - I forgot to report that.
Maurica R. from Pensacola, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 35 days in February, 2009 This unit is very nice. My only complaints are the noise from the heater and the crazy neighbor. The heater sounds like a knocking and I have been disturbed from a wonderfully sound sleep by it. The neighbor in the unit to the left of us was quite unpleasant and made false noise complaints against us. Whoever rents this unit should be prepared for complaints and should be very conscious of their noise. Other than that it has a wonderful view and is convenient to everything.
A guest from San Diego, CA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 31 days in November, 2008 Building is old, junky, smells, and has extremely slow elevators. Not great living conditions, but good location.
Kurt Z. from Beacon, NY recommends this property. Stayed for 21 days in November, 2007 the apartment itself was lovely-they do need to adjust the water pressure in the bathroom, but besides that, a lovely apartment- the kitchen is terrific! However, one does need to be apprised of the neighbor, who is completely unreasonable about anyone living in the apartment next to him- demands there be no noise or sound whatsoever after 7:00 in the evening, which is a little difficult when one is working in the theatre! I am an adult 35+ and live a quiet, non-party life, so people who stay there, esp. if they have kids, need to be made aware of the neighbor as long as he is living there. He is rather unpleasant, to say the least.
Jan C. from Calgary, AB recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2007 Our family of 4 enjoyed our 3 day stay in Seattle. Our accommodation at the Electra were adequate, although the kitchen/dining/living room area was very small for us. The bathroom was also very small. We were aware that this is a very old building and that rooms are small and since we were only there a short time, we didn't mind. The only problem was that one night at about 3 when we were sleeping I heard a crash and discovered that a framed picutre had fallen off the wall in the hallway leaving glass shards everywhere on the hardwood floor. The location for shopping and sightseeing in the inner city was perfect. It was within walking distance of the large department stores and Pike Market, although was uphill on the way back. We had a rented car and parking was convenient in a covered, secure garage. We took the public transit a couple of times (i.e. to the Science center) and it was also convenient. One of the highlights of the trip was a tour on the 'ducks' It was a fun way to get a tour of the city. We found it diffuclt to find family dining in the area with our youg girls, therefore I would mostly recommend the location for adults only or families with older children and .
A guest from Lyons, KS recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2007 We were very pleased with the location and were able to have guests for the evening, etc. One problem we encountered was finding a place to park when family came to pick us up or to visit. The convince of the kitchen with supplies, a phone for local use, etc. was great. Taking out the trash was the only negative - that was not a great experience, but there were no major problems. Oh, a larger bath, or two bathrooms, would have been nice for the four of us but none were available at the time.
Michael A. from Seattle, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2007 the condo was in great condition, having different kitchen appliances was wonderful, the location was great (as I wasn't always able to be with my family as I had work). We didn't really take advantage of the amenities, such as the media center, etc.
