Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this great accommodation. Judy and Paul are two wonderfully kind and caring people.

The rooms were all clean and tidy/ The living area was very spacious. Everything was in great working condition. There are all the appliances you need to feel at home.

The location is just beautiful - amazing view and location. Highly recommended! We had a brilliant experience and can totally understand why it is in such demand! Thank you again Judy and Paul!

Seattle Vacation

We would like to thank Judy and Paul for their hospitality. We found this to be a perfect retreat. When we arrived we were greeted by Judy. She showed us where to park and helped us with the door code. The driveway is on an incline and was not a problem for us. We found this retreat very spacious and fully stocked. Judy and Paul have made sure to truly make you feel right at home. My husband is a chef and cooked twice of our 4 night stay. He had everything he needed, right down to the spices. The view was spectacular. We got lucky as the weather was fantastic. It reached 80 degrees. Yet the house stayed cool. We found the location perfect. It is a short distance to the water taxi going to downtown Seattle. It was extremely nice to come back to such a lovely retreat after site seeing and walking all day. Upon leaving Judy came out to bid us farewell. The little touches meant so much to us. We will definitely recommend this property to all of our traveling friends.

We loved Paul and Judy's rental! The location is perfect, the home is beautifully decorated, and the view is awesome! We found the parking to be very convenient....right in front of the house. And the driveway is not that's a short walk to the front door! Judy is great about replying to e-mails and we appreciated her hospitality. We wish we could return soon, but as you can see, they are quite booked! That's probably because this is such an ideal place to stay. We do look forward to our next visit in this comfortable "home-away-from-home". Thank you, Paul and Judy, for sharing your beautiful Seattle home!

Great home away from home.

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay here during our 5 nights in Seattle. My wife and I are completely enamored with West Seattle, so we were on the hunt for a place that met our needs and kept us within a brief drive from all of our favorite spots. The location is great, it's right down the hill from lots of great treasures. It's also only a short drive away from just about everything else.

The apartment is very comfortable. We spent a bunch of time enjoying the start of the Olympics in front of the fire place. It was really enjoyable. The kitchen had everything we could have needed. We didn't take advantage of the hot tub as we were exhausted by the time we got home every night, but next time I'd certainly reconsider that!

The bed was super comfortable - we slept like babies.

I look forward to staying here again during our next visit to Seattle. Judy and Paul were so kind and helpful. This place is perfect if you want to wake up to a nice view in the morning and want to be located just a street away from Alki Beach and a few hills away from the heart of West Seattle. Awesome!

The PERFECT place for us!

  • 5 of 5
We picked this location because our daughter and family live just blocks away but don't have space for us to stay with them. OK, so Seattle in January is a challenge, but this rental made it a delight. Temps made the hot tub impossible (for us), but the fireplace made the living area cozy. We were able to entertain the family several evenings and put the grandkids in our bed to start the night while the adults chatted. Had the grandkids stay over once as well and everything work perfectly for us. We had several clear afternoons and evenings and the view was STUNNING!

Everything we could have wanted was provided - even down to "shoppers club" cards for the local grocery stores.

This was the first time we had done a VRBO rental, so we were a bit concerned about cleaning/checkout, but we found that was a non-issue for us. A bit of "routine" tidying and we threw the sheets in the washer before catching our morning flight.

The driveway could be a challenge for people with disabilities, though we've both had knee/leg problems within the past year and were able to walk up/down with minimal problems.

Thanks for a great experience. This is now definitely our "go-to" place for visiting Seattle!

Great Stay- Lacked Nothing

  • 5 of 5
I can't say enough good things about this place and the owners. The location was awesome. It is nestled in a quite neighborhood, walking distance from the Puget Sound. There's a beautiful paved trail and side walk along the Sound, making for a wonderful walk, to many restaurants. Public transportation ran close to the property. The view from the huge picture window, comfy decor and fire place were very welcoming at the end of our busy days. The house was well stocked with everything we needed, including discount club cards for the local grocery stores. There were even a few toys and games hidden away but there if you need them. There was a notebook full of suggestions of restaurants and things to do waiting for us on the counter. The place was very clean and the owners recycle! The owners' communication with us was very clear and helpful. The photos and description posted of the listing are accurate. To top it all off, our cleaning deposit was refunded quickly. My husband and I definitely want to return for a longer stay during whale season.

From the Owner

We fell in love with this property the minute we saw it and immediately thought what a wonderful vacation rental our downstairs unit would be. West Seattle is a hidden gem with sweeping westerly views, close to all Seattle activities yet the feel of being close to nature.
