ReviewsWrite a review
The photos accurately show the beauty of this property. What will delight you upon arrival is how expansive the view actually is. There is something of interest to see moment by moment. We saw sea otters romping, tons of beautiful shore birds, sail boats, tug boats, ferries, and paddles boarders. The landscape is constantly changing. You can see most of this action from the living room but there is an amazing deck that offers an up close and personal experience to the goings on. Although the condo is in a very quiet part of Alki, it is only a 10 minute walk to several good restaurants. We really enjoyed Cactus and Phoenicia. But if you want an outstanding breakfast, hop in the car and drive about 2 miles to Circa and order the Louisiana Benedict. Teresa was very easy to work with and the cleaning crew did an excellent job. The home was in tip top condition and came complete with games, dvds, a wonderful library, and even beach gear in the hallway. My only request would be a simple supply of spices and an upgrade to the sectionals in the living room. All in all this is a premium property.

Owner response: Thank you Candy for your comments. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. Perhaps you missed the spice and herb drawer where I supply a number of premium salts, herbs and peppers. It is in a drawer beside the stove and I will mention it in my pre-arrival instructions for future guests. We would love to have you as a return guest.
Stayed for a week in October. Property is well appointed. Kitchen has every accessory you could imagine needing. View from the balcony is everything you could want. You are within walking distance of Alki beach and very good restaurants / coffee shops. We liked Duke's Chowder House, Pegasus Pizza and Sunfish Fish and Chips. Easy drive to Seattle in a quiet neighborhood. We have rented condos all over the country and in Mexico and this was probably the nicest one we have stayed in.

Fantastic Vacation Experience
Fantastic Vacation Experience
West Seattle is great place to visit, and there's no better place to stay than Alki. This condo is exceptional, luxurious and quite comfortable with everything you need. Sitting by the fireplace and watching the variety of birds, occasional seals, the fantastic sunsets make for nice evenings. The owner obviously take very good care of the unit, and she is very easy to work with. We will definitely be back. Highly recommended!

This upper level condo was perfect for the two of us, very well furnished and everything we needed in the kitchen. The view is beautiful and the West Seattle condo was a nice break from downtown Seattle. We will definitely be back.

A luxury perch on Puget Sound
A luxury perch on Puget Sound
You will experience the awesome sunsets above the beautiful water of Puget Sound in this luxury condo. The water is an easy few yards away with a beach that is almost private, just on the point of the Alki Light House. Watching the freighters, pleasure boats, wind surfers and the numerous birds, along with seals right off the beach is a wonderous thing! The condo is graciously furnished and is very close to Alki Beach with great restaurants and a view of nearby islands, ferry boats and the Emerald city, Seattle. Staying here is a real treat that you won't forget!

About the owner: We are native Seattlites, living now part time in Seattle, Sandpoint, ID and on our boat. We love West Seattle and feel there is no better place to feel part of a small beach community within a major metropolitan area. With the wonderful reviews by our guests of our first VRBO unit, we decided to add this second unit to VRBO in the spring of 2013.
Why the Owner Chose West Seattle:
The location is very, very special. It has been in our family for two generations first as a beach cottage, in the 70's a new luxury executive suite 2 unit apartment was build on the site. In 2006 the building underwent a major remodel. This unit offers the quiet of a private waterfront location while being within easy walking distance to the fun activities of Alki Beach Park. If you choose to leave the beach for downtown Seattle, it is only minutes away. We believe this is the best place live and vacation in Seattle.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Our property gives us the chance to see eagles flying overhead, sea lions, otters, sea birds within feet of the waterline, schools of orca when in season, even a gray whale once in a while. We love walking the beach finding treasures or simply being on the patio enjoying the sun and the sounds of the sea, walking to a restaurant or biking or roller blading from the front yard. It is inspiring to watch the boating traffic anything from sailboarders to sailing races to large commercial freighters. This place has a 'soul' to us and it and has been very loved part of our family.
