Description of the Seattle vacation condo rental
A truly unique place; literally on the private beach with sweeping western view of Puget Sound, Olympic Mountains, several islands, and if you're lucky, the occasional pod of orca whales. Feel the serenity of a quiet Puget Sound getaway as soon as you enter - hard to believe that downtown Seattle is only 10 minutes away!

The building is only 3 units, this is the one directly on the beach. Sleeps up to 6 with 2 baths. Dining and living room area wrapped in windows looking directly out over the beach. Fire-pit, gas BBQ, kayak, and row boat ready for use. The low tide exposes lots of great areas for exploring, but it never comes up high enough to reach the deck, so you can ALWAYS access and enjoy the beach.

Just 4 houses down from the lighthouse. It is in lee of Alki Point and sheltered from the marine winds, so it is always calmer and warmer than around the point. Only 3 minute walk from fun community boardwalk, shops, and restaurants on the other side of the point. Big deck to enjoy as you watch the sunsets, boats, or linger over a leisurely meal.

A small sack of groceries of coffee, milk, fruit, and cereal for late arrivals.
Area Information
On the private south side of Alki point. Only a couple blocks away from the restaurants, cafes, and shops along the boardwalk on the other side of the point. Larger grocery stores 2 miles away. Public bus transportation to downtown Seattle on Alki Beach boardwalk. The property is next to the picturesque Alki Point lighthouse. Wonderful beach with firepit and great logs for furniture. The beach is really just out your front door. Truly an amazing property.

West Seattle Respite

This was a perfect place for the time away that we needed with our daughter who lives in Kent area. She needed some relief from work and it was a soothing place to be. We loved the deck, watching the tide go in and out and all the ship traffic. Much different than our Midwest life. We enjoyed being able to walk and dine and meet friends in the area. We appreciate the opportunity to rent such a great place. It was cheery and comfortable.

perfect location, perfect view, wonderful stay

For our family summer vacation, we were looking to escape the Texas heat, have a great view with beach access, along with convenient access to downtown Seattle and the Olympic Penninsula. We found it all here. The views of Puget Sound were stunning and the kids spent a great deal of time on the beach in front of this first floor condo looking for shells, watching the seals, and digging in the sand. Because it is just south of the iighthouse, it was a very quiet place. The condo was easy to live in and very comfortable. WiFi allowed us to work in the evenings while we enjoyed the sound of the waves. An easy walk to the Alki strip afforded nice family dinners and several days on the sandy beach. A shuttle to the Water Taxi took us across the bay to downtown Seattle for visits to Pike Place Market, the Aquarium, and even a baseball game at SafeCo field. An easy drive to Mt. St. Helens and even the Olympic Penninsula gave us the opportunity to see more of the surrounding area. I recommend visiting the lavender farms in Sequim. The owner has the place nicely decorated and set up with creature comforts - great blankets, warm comforters, nice towels, cable TV, etc. I would highly recommend this place for anyone that wants to experience all that Seattle has to offer, especially the amazing views of Puget Sound.

Another Very Satisfied Vacationer

My family needed a place to house 6 adults for my nephews wedding on Bainbridge Island as well as enjoy a vacation. We are so happy we found this place. It is a beautiful location with plenty of entertainment provided by the actvities on Puget Sound. With the deck and living space we had room for other family members in town to gather for a visit as well. With easy access to Seattle we saw many of the sites there, and were able to meet up with family in town. Grandma negotiated the two sets of 5 steps to get down to the deck entrance with ease. The owner was easy to work with and had the place well stocked and furnished. I wish we had taken more time to just sit and to enjoy all Alki had to offer. Maybe next time.

Renew, Refresh, Relax!

Our family gathered in this delightful beach place for a week's stay during our daughter's Alki wedding. The views were stunning, the home beautifully appointed and the deck became our hangout for cozying up with a book, a marathon of game playing or just grabbing some rays! Walking distance to great restaurants, beaches and activities of all kinds! Don't miss out on this very special spot...we hope to be able to return sometime as it holds many wonderful family memories!

Clean, modern condo!

Elaine, just wanted to say that we completely enjoyed our stay at your condo. Very clean, modern and had all the amenities we needed. The Alki beach area is great, with shops and restaurants within walking distance. We'll stay here again next time we're in Seattle.

Breath taking views

The view and sound of the waves right outside your door were priceless. The kids loved playing on the beach and watching the seal pups play. Then, after a long day of sightseeing, it was refreshing to walk down the waterfront to a quaint dinner on Alki Ave.

What a Treat!

Our family of 4 loved this cute beach condo. It was well-equipped and beautifully decorated. Just a fun walk down the shore to restaurants on Alki beach and also a short drive to hip West Alki with lots of cute shops and restaurants. We loved hearing the sound of the waves and enjoyed sunsets on the deck! What a memorable vacation!

Wonderful views!

The house was in a perfect location. We loved the water and the beach walks. The house was clean and well stocked. Close to the city yet peaceful. Would go back again and again.

Incredible Views

This vacation rental has incredible views of the Puget Sound and mountains. Very easy to lose track of time watching the boats sail by. Beautifully decorated condo within walking distance to many restaurants.

Martha Anderson

Mooresville NC USA

Absolutely perfect!

This condo was a haven for our family of 4. It is right on the beach, as advertised, and thus provided entertainment for the kids and relaxation for the adults. It is an easy drive to Seattle from the condo, but it was tempting to never leave the neighborhood. It was clean and well stocked and the owner even left us a snack to eat. We will never stay anywhere else in the Seattle area!
