Property description

Walking on the beach, bicycling, kyaking, kite flying, and roller blading are possibly the best in the city, or maybe you'd like to have a wiener roast in one of the firepits on the beach or...people watch from one of many benches along the promenade.
Staying here you are walking distance to the Alki lighthouse & many restaurants, parks, movie theatre, busline and a free shuttle to the water taxi...which takes you to the Seattle waterfront, where you can walk to the world famous Pike Place Market, Safeco Field, home of the Seattle Mariners or Century Link, home of the Seattle Seahawks,
among other things to do....the aquarium, space needle, restaurants, shopping, or go for a cruise on one of the Argosy boats, or one of many ferries to our islands....enjoy all the fun the downtown waterfront offers.

My beach cottage has a European feel....a little French...a little Italian...and sleeping is a little like the Dutch sleeping closets from history. I guarantee you'll have an outrageous time here!
Offered are a fully furnished kitchen, two baths, one bedroom + sleeping loft, both furnished with built in double beds...sleeps 4. Not suitable for small children or elderly or any one with difficulty getting around. Beautiful views of puget sound and the Olympic mountains from every window and the deck...while sleeping you'll hear the sound of waves outside your window or possibly sea lions, seagulls or...eagles... it's a very peaceful getaway or join the fun going on everywhere!
I recently finished a remodel and now have a wonderful 'sitting perch' with a view and steps up to it, as well as the sleeping loft! The ladder is gone!

For those not familiar with Seattle ...{gasp!}....we are the largest city in Washington, located between three bodies of water, Lake Washington, Lake Union, and of course the Puget Sound, and Lake Sammamish borders the eastside, we also have two beautiful mountain ranges, and are a major seaport.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: I am a retired artist/designer...I fell in love with this property because of its' location. It had been vacant for a year so needed a lot of work, which my two boys [both contractors/architects/artists] remodeled for me. From the inside to the porch swing on the deck...it is positively delicious!!! I am a swimmer, boater and all around beach & water lover....it's very peaceful and ...meditational but very exciting to be so close to the action! I'm also a traveler so I want to share this gem with other travelers. I have a 2 year old puppy {see photo} so if you have allergies this might not be the place for you.

Why the Owner Chose West Seattle:
this is where I wanted to live 8 months of the year.....the rest of my time is spent on my boat on Lake Union.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
water...beach...and mountains! This place has it all!
