Thread: Timeshare in Seattle?

  1. #1

    Timeshare in Seattle?

    Is the Worldmark the only Timeshare in Seattle?

    I imagine that it would be tough to sell Timeshares in Seattle because everyone would want the summer 2 months when the sun comes out. Who is going to buy the cold rainy season? I love it there as a place to live...but as a vacation spot, summer is really the only good time to go. If they sold Floaters.....what a risk it would be to get a summer week with 52 owners trying for the same 10 weeks.

    The Worldmark Camlin is the only timeshare that I know of that is in Seattle itself.

    There are some others in the general vicinity - on the west side of Puget Sound and near the US-Canada border.

    Yup.. The Camlin is not to far from many downtown attractions but is up on the hill a bit. So walking away is easier than walking back. Parking is expencive. I think it was about $25 - $30 per day.

    Camlin is in the Denny Regrade area, which is pretty flat. There aren't any significant hills between the Camlin and most of the downtown area. The Camlin is pretty close to the Convention Center bus tunnel station and is in teh downtown ride-free zone.

    Areas near the waterfront and Lake Union are lower, and there can be a climb getting back up the general elevation of downtown. Also, the downtown area generally slopes downhill to the south and west, and there are some steeper hills in that area, particularly on the streets the run perpendicular to the waterfront.

    Coming from Pike Place Market to Camlin, there's a small hill in the first block. But the grades are pretty small after you reach Second Ave.

    Is the Camlin considered to be on the lower portion of Capitol Hill ?

    No. It's in the Denny Regrade, where Denny Hill used to be 100 years ago. Capitol Hill is pretty much entirely east of I-5.

    I've walked that area on various occasions when I've been at the convention center of had other business in the area. I can assure that there aren't any serious hills between the Camlin and downtown. The Pike Place Market is a straight shot down Pine Street, and that a pretty steady and gentle downhill slope until you reach 1st Ave. Here's a link to Google street view for Pine Avenue at Ninth, looking toward the Market.

    Nice map. I remember walking from Kells over by Pikes Street Market to the Wild Ginger then back to the Camlin. I thought this was uphill but maybi not.

    If you left the Market on Union then went up Union to 3rd, there would be a hill in that couple of blocks as you gain elevation back up to downtown. That route starts at the south end of the market, which is lower elevation than the Pike/Pine area of the market. Wild Ginget to the Camlin is pretty flat though.

    Overall on Pine Street between the Camlin and First Avenue, there 's a change in elevation of about 40 feet over about one-half mile.

    The Worldmark Camlin is about it.

    One of the hotels we really like is the Inn at the Market. Its across the street from Pike Street Market and close to my favorite Irish Bar called Kells.

    Downtown Seattle Hotels - Luxury Downtown Seattle Hotel - Inn At The Market Hotel

    Kells Irish Restaurant & Pub - Portland, Seattle & San Francisco

    Kells has a fancy bottle of Holy Water on the top shelf. I asked what the heck kind of drink uses Holy Water. None. The Holy Water is used to keep the ghosts out or at bay. The old building that Kells is located in was used to store dead bodies back in the old Seattle days. Kells often has live music.
