About the Owner

West Seattle has been our home for about 30 years. We bought this house in 2005 and spent several years doing a 'down to the studs' remodel which added a self-contained apartment on the garden level for family, friends and guests. We live upstairs.

We enjoy travel, meeting travelers and sharing our love for this area. Now that we are empty-nesters, we are ready to offer the apartment and to extend Northwest hospitality to our visitors.

Perfect home away from home

  • 5 of 5
Alki-Soundview was the perfect location for a relaxing vacation. I couldn't have chosen a better place! In fact, my 4 night stay was the highlight of the 9 days I spent in the Northwest. Thank you to John and Kathryn for being gracious hosts. I can't wait to plan my next trip to Seattle.....mainly just to stay at Alki-Soundview!!!

Seattle Adventure

  • 5 of 5
The apartment was excellent and more than true to the description. It was our home base while we were on our Seattle adventure and was a wonderful place to come home to after our daily activities. Sincere thanks to the owners for their kindness and superb accommodations. I would certainly return to this location for my next Seattle adventure. JO

Peaceful location; Great view

  • 5 of 5
First, this property completely exceeded our expectations. It's a great apartment in a peaceful location with a beautiful view of the Puget Sound. It is very comfortable, well appointed and provided everything we needed for a very nice stay. Kathryn & John are gracious hosts who made us feel most welcome. On our next rip to Seattle, this is definitely the place we will stay.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5
What a great way to spend a week in Seattle! The apartment was just fabulous - very homey, very welcoming, completely self-contained. Kathryn and John are so hospitable and are very thoughtful about what travellers want/need to feel at home. Great location, too...easy downtown access. The view is amazing - we've already recommended the apartment to our neighbors! We are looking forward to a repeat stay during our next trip to the area.

A Little Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5
Just returned home from our stay at Alki-Soundview. What an amazing find. The views of the water and the Olympic Mountains were spectacular. My son enjoyed watching the ferries zip across the water from the living room window. I enjoyed the beautiful sunsets over the water.

The home is as advertised. When we first arrived in West Seattle, it was wall-to-wall cars parked everywhere. By the time we made it up to Alki-Soundview, it was a different world. Homes were much more spread out with plenty of parking. The homeowners were easy to communicate with, and gave us plenty of ideas to keep us busy. We took to water taxi into Seattle multiple times. There is even a free shuttle near the home to take you to the water taxi dock. The parking near the dock is limited and you must parallel park on the street. We made dinner one night, and we had all the conveniences of home. Everything in the apartment is of high quality, including the linens. My only complaint is we didn't spend enough time at this wonderful home away from home.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the very kind review. The benefits of being "close but not too close" to Alki include easier parking and quieter streets. The water taxi is a beautiful way to travel downtown.

Outstanding Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We had the best vacation at Alki Soundview. Schmitz park nearby was a very nice chance to get back to nature. I would choose this location again in a heartbeat and if you choose this place your only disappointment will be that you didn't book it for longer. Thank you Kathryn and John for helping us enjoy an excellent adventure in Seattle!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words. We are delighted you found Schmitz Park. It's a short walk, but it seems like you've traveled miles to the deep forest.

Amenities

From the Owner

This is a large, private, tastefully furnished and decorated view apartment in a great location. We are a 10-12 minute walk from the action at Alki Beach. In the peak summer months it's great to be part of the action, but it's also important to be able to get away from it. We are a few blocks from two different bus lines and a free shuttle to the Water Taxi that travels across Elliott Bay to downtown Seattle. Whether you travel downtown by bus, water or car (about 10 minutes), there is plenty to do once you get there.
