West Seattle house description

Fully furnished 1,000 square foot home in nice residential area, a 20 minute drive from downtown and a 10 minute drive to Alki beach. Master has queen bed, second bedroom with 2 twins, queen hide-a-bed, and one bath. This home has a very large fenced private backyard for kids and dogs to run and play.

Beautifully restored, this house was built in 1930 and has lots of cottage charm including crystal door knobs, old camellias and rhodies, and it faces east west for light! Set back from the street, this home is ideal for families - cute and clean. It has private driveway parking for two cars. Additional street parking without time restrictions.

Fully stocked kitchen with dishes, pots and pans - everything you need to cook for yourself. The table expands to seating for six for family meals. All linens, towels and bedding provided.

Beautiful lawns and gardens with established trees and birds to feed. BBQ in the backyard. One of the best local parks is five minutes away - Lincoln Park has a saltwater public pool and a spectacular view of the sunset over Puget Sound. Our spaniel Bella loves to go walking on the paved beach trail.

The cottage is located 1 mile up the hill above the Fauntleroy Ferry dock. Easy driving distance of I-5, Highway 99 to downtown and Highway 509 - Just 20 minutes to/from SeaTac airport. The house is not in the flight path - very quiet and residential. You hardly know you are in the city but are close to everything!

There is a local caretaker to check you in, help you with directions and take care of any needs. We have had guests from near and far...California, Oregon, Arizona, Michigan, Scotland, and Germany. Everyone loved the convenient location.

Medical visit accommodation: Guests who stay at the house while receiving medical care or who have disabilities will need to discuss the suitability of the house with us before booking.

WE REQUIRE a 7 DAY MINIMUM STAY. NO EXCEPTION. Reservations must be made two weeks in advance of stay and due to the popularity of the property, we do not offer rate discounts. 2015 summer booking reservations will be open after Jan 15, 2015
