West Seattle condo description

The building is small with only 3 units, ours is the top unit with the most spectacular views. If you want to spend the day beachcombing for treasures on the beach, it's right in front. Sleeps 1-4 with 2 baths. One of the most unique aspects of our property is that it is directly on the beach where the tide rarely comes all the way in so you can USUALLY enjoy the beach. There is normally beach access. Within minutes of arriving, you feel calm and serene as you listen to the waves and gulls & watch for seals and other wildlife. We're just 4 houses down from the Alki lighthouse. It is in lee (shelter) of Alki Point. During the summer it's calm and warm, degrees higher than around the point where the north wind blows cool marine air across the water and directly onto the beach. The private deck will add to your enjoyment as you watch the sunsets, gulls, blue heron, and sometimes eagles, boats, or linger over a leisurely meal. The master bedroom offers a king bed, and the 2nd bedroom has a trundle bed, which offers 2 twins, or can be joined to make a king bed.

Keywords: Condo on Alki Beach of Puget Sound with incredible views of several islands, Mt. Ranier, the Alki Lighthouse (4 doors down) & the Olympic Mountain range. Beautiful beachfront condo. Throughout the year watch gulls, seals, eagles & other aquatic sealife as well as ferries and other fantastic boat traffic just out the front door.

West Seattle is an incredible location and community. With outdoor activities such as beachcombing for treasures, kayaking, biking, jogging, walking, roller blading, swimming...etc. only a short stroll away from the condo. City life in downtown Seattle is only 15 minutes away by ferry, car or bus where you can enjoy great shopping, theatre, restaurants, museums, Pike Place Market, Seattle Waterfront, the Zoo, the Aquarium and much more!!! Public transportation is readibly available, just a 1/2 mile walk from the condo.

              This condo is minutes away from all downtown activities, however you will feel like you're a world away. This comfortable yet luxurious getaway is ideal for couples wanting a peaceful environment in an exciting area of the Emerald City. You will feel like you are on your own yacht as you gaze out to the incredible views and unbelievable sunsets.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2005

              About the owner: My husband and I love life, both the ocean and the mountains, and love West Seattle!

              Why the Owner Chose West Seattle:
              We used to have a home up the hill with views of the city, but longed for the incredible sunsets & the sounds of the waves lapping the beach. This area of Seattle is truly the best, as you are close to the downtown area, but also world's away. Our other home is in the country, so we have the best of both worlds!

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              Right on Alki beach with fantastic restaraunts, coffee shops (yes, Starbucks among others), a great art gallery , a convenience store...just down the beach a couple of blocks...a short walk. This is truly a 'walkers' paradise. The 'best' Seattle grocery store just 2 miles away. There is public bus transportation to Seattle a few blocks from the condo on the Alki Beach boardwalk. Our property is next to the picturesque Alki Point lighthouse. You have the ability to be as private as you want, or as involved in the Seattle beach seen as you like! Our location is enough off of the beaten path that you can feel you are in your own private hideaway, though just steps away is the fun action of Alki Beach. Alki Beach is the only natural sandy beach in Seattle & was the first point where settlers arrived, so there is some wonderful history. Wonderful beach with firepit and great logs for furniture! The beach is really just out your front door! Truly an amazing property. You will not be disappointed! This is a one of a kind place. 20 minutes from SeaTac Airport, 10 minutes to downtown Seattle... Great access to downtown for those Husky or Seahawk football games!
