vacation rental description

This location is amazing!! Sweeping views from practically the whole house. Enjoy watching ferries and passing ships as well as the Olympic mountains. This is as close as you can get to the water! Its very relaxing here yet the heart of ALKI BEACH is less than 3 miles away with world renowned bars and restaurants and recreational attractions. Lincoln park and the Fauntleroy ferry dock are less than 2 miles away as well.

This cape cod style house features a large studio area with waterside queen bed & picture window. There is also a separate additional bedroom. The house features elegant seating near the fireplace for reading or playing board games, and also has two couches and coffee table with 37' flat panel LCD TV. Cable TV service with full programming featuring recordable DVR. The bedroom features a 50' TV. Both TV's also have DVD players.

The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes and cooking utensils, we offer a commercial grade water cooler for fresh drinking water. Other additions in the kitchen include a french press and toaster oven. There is a breakfast bar with bar-stools as well as a glass dining table. Outside on the deck there is a charcoal BBQ GRILL you are welcome to use.

There are several books, board games, and cards for your enjoyment as well as top quality binoculars for our guests to use to scope out all the different sites, we've often spotted seals swimming mere feet from the deck as well as other wildlife. The outside of the deck is equipped with high quality flood lights, (light switch on the bedroom south wall, behind curtains 'PLEASE TURN-OFF' when not in use. ENJOY!) so your enjoyment of the water doesn't have to end when the sun goes down! Your assured the best rest you've ever had being lulled to sleep by the sound of waves gently tumbling right outside! You'll really enjoy the SEATTLE/ALKI BEACH experience! Well-behaved pets are welcome, upon negotiated approval and possible additional fees and/or deposits. Alki is extremely pup-friendly. There's a number of trails I'm happy to recommend. Please note that a dog and cat live on or near the premises but will not be here during your stay. It's a very dog friendly neighborhood, with several options for walking, biking or just a casual stroll on a very scenic and level walkway! Want to venture further? We are located just a blocks away from a number of nearby vendors who rent bikes for one, two or four people at once, roller-blades, scooters, sea kayaks etc ...

This is a special place that all of our guests just love! There is so much to do in West Seattle alone but this location also offers quick and convenient access to downtown Seattle. Public transportation is a breeze with a bus stop very nearby and the ALKI Water Taxi for quick trips,( 15 minutes) downtown without the hassles of traffic or parking. The Water Taxi drops you off downtown on the waterfront and blocks from pike place market, SAFECO FIELD (MLB MARINERS home baseball stadium), and Century-Link Field (NFL SEAHAWKS home football stadium), as well as many, many more exciting adventures awaiting your arrival!

We're also working on a concierge service in the near future that would include VIP SERVICES, providing beverages, food, florist arrangements, firewood, deserts, restaurant food, pizza, maid services, babysitting, dog sitting/walking, sporting/theater event ticket(s), and/or any special request upon your arrival/check-in. We’re also working on repeat clients and referral discounts, etc... We plan on changing the way individuals, couples and families take their 'care-free' ALKI BEACH dream vacations in the near future! Stay tuned!

We encourage you to take advantage of our reduced special rates and we guarantee you will have a memorable stay!!

FYI: we are very happy with our cape cod style home and cape cod style life-style, however we like to travel and we chose to make our rate extremely affordable in order to fill-up our booking calendar and it's working! The down side is that we're not at the house and recently we had to hire a new maid service (last Winter 2013) to clean between check-ins, and I guess she wasn't up to par (we we're traveling at the time), and she has since been replaced!

You know 'When the cat's away .....', or 'no one watches the store, like the store owner'. I could go on and on, but remember we love living the cape cod life-style, which means not to stress/drama about the little things!!

We sometimes stay at the BEACH HOUSE, and on occasion we travel and have other houses that we frequent. We decided to make our place affordable rather than completely remodeling and charging the actual going price for an ALKI BEACH WATERFRONT HOME, (If you can find one at all!)

We equate our place as though you were going to stay at a family member's vacation home, that's shared with all your family members. The advantages are that you don't have to buy any/many condiments, IE... steak sauce, salt, pepper, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, mustard, ketchup, mayo, aspirins, Tylenol, tums, Band-Aids, hotel-style shampoos & conditioners, personal wrapped soap(s), and even coffee beans (on occasion) & grinder and (on occasion) fresh bread(s) fruit and vegetables and fresh flowers etc...!

Recently, we even provided a Christmas tree for a daughter and her father that flew in from New York. They decorated it with their kids and Grand-kids. She was moved and teared-up, and very appreciative for the effort! Her dad was going through medical issues at the time. We love making peoples stay enjoyable and memorable! We find that most people appreciate not having to go out and purchase these and other necessary items to enhance their vacation experience! Most people fly-in and prefer not having to go shopping right away, especially if their stay is only for the weekend, where the use of their time is extremely valuable!

Those, whom have lived on the BEACH, know that it's impossible to keep the outside windows clean due to the OCEAN SPRAY, (especially in the winter months, during winter storms, which we love with a romantic fire going (firewood provided on occasion!) and a thick warm fuzzy throw blanket!) We try to live by this motto the best we can!

“YOU NEVER GET THIS DAY BACK AGAIN, SO ENJOY IT TO THE FULLEST!”

Anyways, our goal is to keep our prices low (this year the city of Seattle is trying to charge an 18% lodging tax, but we're determined not to pass that cost along to our guest), and hopefully we're rewarded with repeat guest reservations and/or referrals! - GOD BLESS AND ENJOY! - PASS IT ON -

******* IMPORTANT RATE INFO *********

traveler reviews for this seattle house rental

Amazing Location for a Great Price

Review submitted: June 20, 2014   Date of arrival: June 1, 2014

We stayed at the BeachHouse while in a transition between a move. It was a great option for us and a great way to leave Seattle. The home is right on the water and in a wonderful area of the city. We spent every evening walking the dogs along the waterfront and then on the patio enjoying the sunsets. Michael was a wonderful and very accommodating host. There were a few small "cons" that have been mentioned in the other reviews however these were easy to overlook given the long list of "pros". Our main issue which is not the owners problem is we have two small children and it may not be the most kid friendly place for very young kids. Overall we had a wonderful time and highly recommend this property.

What a memorable trip!

Review submitted: May 27, 2014   Date of arrival: May 23, 2014

My husband and I drove from Vancouver , BC and my friends flew to Seattle from Minneapolis and Tennessee who were looking for a beach vacation. Mexico/Hawaii was outside the budget for now so we decided to meet in Seattle and stay in a beach house. We arrived on Friday midnight to the beach house.The minute we stepped in to the house we instantly got the “Feel at home “ feeling. There was everything under the sun you think you would need! Before we arrived we had plans to go around the city but this place was so comfortable we stayed in the house most of the time! We cooked in the house( there was everything you needed present), had a few drinks laughed and talked all day/night long .

What a great location! You are literally staying ON The beach! Couldn't expect anything better!

We wouldn't have such a good time if we did not stay in this place . . We are planning to stay here for all our future vacations and I highly recommend this place for anyone who wants a relaxing stay.

Thanks Michael!

Great Location!

Review submitted: December 3, 2013   Date of arrival: November 19, 2013

Loved the location. In all honesty, we believe the owner lives here and packs a suitcase when it is rented, mainly because of the clutter and personal belongings in the home. There is construction next door, so many cars taking up the street parking. The driveway is packed full of stacked lumber on one side and overgrown shrubbery on the other side. The passenger must exit the vehicle before parking. Still, at least there IS a parking spot available. The bed pictured in the main photo is actually placed in the open concept dining room, so there is no closet, however, there is a closet in the one small bedroom, but that closet is filled with the owners clothes, and shoes, hats, etc.. The dressers are not empty either. The small bedroom is cluttered with everything from an old fashioned GIANT TV on a stand, a stand with a big fax machine and other random items, a vanity that blocks the trundle from coming out from under the day bed to a personal collection of hats on the door. That little room is suitable for one person only. Also, you must go through that bedroom to access the bathroom. The bathroom has personal items in every space, old bottles of yellowed and separated shampoo, toothpaste, a band aid, a shower ring and even some pills of some kind just sitting on top of a box of bath powder, just to name a few examples. There is a wardrobe near the entry, we thought we could use to hang our coats, but that is also full. There are personal items in a large wicker basket and in every kitchen drawer. The mailman came to the door with mail. There is old mismatched dirty (greasy kitchen dirt) junk glassware in the cluttered garden window in the kitchen, and the windows were so covered (with seawater?) that we found the windex and cleaned the sliding glass doors ourselves. We also cleaned the tub ourselves. The location alone makes this a really great property, and the sheets on the bed are really nice, and there is a great selection of pillows. The main TV is small, and we could not see it from the bed, had lots of channels to choose from and the couch is large enough for two people to sit in comfort. There is really good water pressure for the shower which gets nice and hot. The owner is really nice and very reasonable. I think he is so used to living there, he no longer sees the clutter, or realizes that guests walk in and see that there is no space for them, therefore making them feel as though they are invading somebody's home. Luckily he is nice.

Owners response: Carrie and her husband are GREAT! We THANK them for pointing out the things that we need to work on. We do live at the BEACH HOUSE and travel quite often and have other houses that we own and frequent from time to time. We decided to make our place affordable rather than completely remodeling and charging the actual going price for an ALKI BEACH WATERFRONT HOME, (If you can find one at all!)

We equate our place as though you were going to stay at a family member's vacation home, that's shared with all your family members. The advantages are that you don't have to buy condiments, IE... steak sauce, salt, pepper, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, mustard, ketchup, mayo, aspirins, Tylenol, tums, band-aids, hotel-style shampoos & conditioners, personal wrapped soap(s), and even coffee beans & grinder and on occasion fresh bread(s) fruit and vegetables and fresh flowers!

" YOU NEVER GET THIS DAY BACK AGAIN, SO ENJOY IT TO THE FULLEST! "

Anyways, THANKS for reading my response and rant! Our goal is to keep our prices low (this year the city of Seattle is trying to charge an 18% lodging tax, but we're determined not to pass that cost along to our guest), and hopefully we're rewarded with repeat guest reservations and/or referrals! - GOD BLESS! -
