Property Details

Updated: Aug 16, 2014
2 King Bedrooms, 2 Full Baths, Top Floor With Sound View And Large Deck

Are you working in Seattle or visiting for a few days and need a place to call home. This condo is 1200 sf on the top floor of the prestigious Diplomat. The neighborhood is safe and the building is locked 24/7. You have 1 parking space and the building has an elevator. Both bedrooms have fabulous comfortable king size beds and the rooms themselves are fairly large. That is one of the reasons we purchased this condo - the large bedrooms. The entire building has been refurbished approximately 10 years ago and is VERY well maintained.

About the Owner

We purchased this as a family destination home. My husband and I grew up in Everett & Tacoma and have since moved to California. Our family & friends live in this area so we visit several times a year and like to have this as our home base. It is cozy and clean and has allowed us the ease of traveling. I can work right from the dining room table while gazing out at the puget sound or listening to the rain on the flat top roof. I love it.

Ideal location

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this spacious ideally located apartment. I love that this is a corner unit so it has lots of windows for light and ventilation and even a nice view of the water. When the August temperatures rose our host surprised us with an air conditioner to keep us comfortable. The best thing though is the location. We parked our car in the covered off street parking spot provided and took the bus! Seattle has an efficient metro bus system that includes a water taxi, buses, trains and ferries, making it a cheap and fast way to get downtown for baseball games, theater, space center etc. When we wanted to stay in the quaint neighborhood of West Seattle there were numerous restaurants, cafés, bars & shops and even a farmer's market! Have to mention the beach where there are lots of fun things to do and you get there on the the FREE bus that you can catch 1 block from the apartment. Add in the cable tv and fast WiFi and you have everything you need. We hope to be staying here again.

Sleepless in Seattle

  • 2 of 5
We spent a week at the cozy condo in West Seattle during the month of July. Due to the extremely hot weather, we had to keep the windows open & the floor fans running as there is no air conditioning in the condo. During our stay, Summerfest - a large street festival - was going on. The music was so loud that it sounded as if the bands were playing in the living room. We had four out of seven sleepless nights due to the festival plus the high temps. The towels are poor quality so we recommend bringing your own. Since we paid a premium price for the condo, we expected everything to be wonderful. When we called the owner to report our unhappiness, an apology was offered but nothing more. We were very disappointed & will not stay there again.

Owner's Response: I am in my sixties and personally LOVE the street fair and the music. I mentioned it to my guest at the time of booking - plus their family lives in West Seattle so they were well aware of what I consider a PREMIER LOCATION. We have purchased an air conditioning unit since this but have so few extreme heat days in Seattle that most homes do not have air conditioning. I love the SOUNDS OF THE CITY - cars, sirens, buses, voices, garbage trucks ETC. IT'S ALIVE!!
Everyone that has stayed was thrilled with the quality and amenities. The towels are of excellent quality and match the decor - large enough to wrap around any body size. The price is fair so a refund was not necessary.

Location

From the Owner

We have fallen in love with West Seattle and love to walk downtown for breakfast, lunch or dinner. I love to browse through the antique shops and have furnished some of the condo by buying local. I guess you would call it eclectic. We have family dinners here sometimes so it is also set up for entertaining.

Nearest Airport : Sea-Tac International Airport at 5 Miles Nearest Barpub : 200 feet at 0.03 Miles Nearest Ferry : Fauntleroy Ferry at 2 Miles Nearest Golf : West Seattle Country Club at 0.25 Miles Nearest Train : Amtrak at 7 Miles Nearest Motorway : I-5 at 6 Miles Nearest Restaurant : 200 feet at 0.03 Miles Nearest Beach : Alki Beach at 2 Miles Car: not necessary

Just outside the door is Red Cup Coffee Shop, Pagliacci Pizza, Shoe Fly Pie, Shadowland, Seattle Fish Co., Ma'ono Fried Chicken & Whisky. We love this because you could walk for days and not see everything. West Seattle is a very friendly community (I call it a mini Seattle). I feel very safe here and enjoy having the girlfriends or grandchildren here to just stroll up & down the streets looking for treasures or just catching a bite to eat at one of the local restaurants.

Amenities

From the Owner

My daughter lived in this building 10 years ago so I got very familiar with West Seattle. The bedrooms are furnished with king size beds. Good beds - that's the key as far as I am concerned. I like to end the day curled up in bed watching the news. Our Cozy Condo works well when we have another couple spend the night as the two bathrooms allow privacy.
