We had the most amazing stay at The Portage Bay Residence. The property was beautifully furnished in a clean, stylish and contemporary style. The apartment was located in a quiet residential street with beautifully restored heritage looking homes. The view over Portage bay was so pretty. We were made to feel very welcome by the owner Gabe who responded to any queries we had before the trip and during our stay. Even the neighbours were friendly and came to say hi. Going downtown was really easy , as the property was within driving distance of many of the lovely restaurants and key 'must see' sites. The kids loved their stay there and enjoyed playing ball at the nearby park, a short distance away. Overall a wonderful experience and we would highly recommend this residence for your stay in Seattle.

Seattle, Washington

Jet city

Whether you’re shooting to the top of Space Needle, splashing in the nearby lakes or just taking a sip of that famous local coffee while your kids play in neighborhood playgrounds, there’s something special about Seattle. The largest city in Washington State has captivating cultural attractions, mesmerising museums, wide open spaces and natural appeal. We love the indoor playground of Seattle Kids Museum, the Museum of Flight and the recently remodelled Seattle Aquarium, just for starters.
