West Seattle house description

Welcome to the BlueSky Guest House. Above beautiful Puget Sound and facing west towards the year-round snow-capped Olympic Mountains, the view from your private quarters will transport you to a world of fun and relaxation. Experience the beauty of the ever-changing sunsets and watch the ships and ferrys go by. The guesthouse is about 800 sq. ft. with two bedrooms, one full-bath, and a kitchen and living/dining combination. The kitchen has a full-size refrigerator, stove and oven, coffee-maker and toaster oven with plenty of counter-space and everything you should need. Downtown Seattle is 15 minutes away by car or a little longer by bus. Great coffee shops, a gourmet market and restaurants are all within a few blocks. Whether you are seeking a peaceful retreat, a romantic getaway, or simply want to experience the best of Seattle, you will have it at the BlueSky Guest House. About a twenty minute drive from the airport in a great neighborhood, the BlueSky Guest House combines the magic of a quiet getaway with the convenience of the city. Come stay with us and you will understand why the BlueSky Guest House is described by our guests as Seattle's perfect getaway. A far better deal than the high priced hotels downtown. Just five minutes from the Vashon Ferry and ten minutes to the West Seattle Water Taxi

The BlueSky Guest House has a private entrance and consists of two bedrooms with Queen-size beds, a full kitchen, bathroom, Wifi and internet access for your own laptop, ample closets, a large dining/living room area; and linens and towels. The main room contains a television with cable access/DVD player and futon which can convert to a double-bed if needed. You can enjoy an early morning cup of coffee as the fog rolls out, walk down to the cafe's or to the beach, take a bike ride, or a ferry ride or the bus into Seattle.

The Guest House is located in the bottom floor of a three story house in a residential neighborhood and is approximately 800 square feet. There is a parking space provided for you. Five steps lead up to the door of the entrance. The guest house is all on one-level.

          Car: Recommended

          We live in a quiet residential area with many trees and a panoramic view of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains. There is great walking on the sidewalks to see the views, down to the waterfront and watch the kitesurfers, along the beach and through Lincoln Park or to our local Pizza place or a very nice (and big) gourmet grocery store. There is also a nice walk to a wonderful playground with views of the downtown Seattle.


          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2009

          About the owner: After looking for a year for a house with a view, we fell in love with this view of Puget Sound, the verdant islands and the snow on the mountains. We've lived in Seattle a long time and really enjoy West Seattle. It's close to downtown and the ferrys but it feels like you are in the country. There is a charming 'village' with antique shops and restaurants, farmer's market and we love to walk to the beach or the bistros. You'll know why they call this the Emerald City!

          Why the Owner Chose West Seattle:
          We purchased this house specifically because of the panoramic views and quiet location. We also wanted guest quarters for our family and friends who visit. When we don't have friends in the guest house - we rent it out to someone looking for a wonderful place to stay in our beautiful city.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          We enjoy walking to the beach at Lincoln Park and in the summer riding our bikes or walking to the outdoor salt-water swimming pool. It's easy to walk to the bus-stop to go into downtown or drive there in about 15 minutes. On Sunday's we like to go to the farmer's market and picking up fruit and maybe a croissant from Bakery Nouveau. We are close to the airport and located between Seatac airport and downtown Seattle. On rainy days, there is plenty to do in the guest house. There are lots of books, games, computer and wifi, or you can curl up and watch a movie.
