West Seattle cottage description

Built in 1916, this cottage is in the Belvidere neighborhood of West Seattle. Ten minutes to downtown Seattle and 20 minutes to the airport. West Seattle has sandy Alki Beach, The Junction Town Center which features some of the best restaurants, coffee shops, antique stores, bike shops, and stunning views of the city and the Olympic Mountains.

Our cottage is a two bedroom home with a queen sleigh bed and two double beds in 2nd bedroom. The bathroom features a heated tile floor with a jetted tub with shower. The living room offers a cozy place to relax, with a gas fireplace, reading lights, and a flat screen TV. Our large kitchen is fully equipped with modern appliances and cookware.

In the backyard there is a cafe table with a sun umbrella, a fire pit, a charcoal BBQ and jacuzzi. Pick herbs from the pots and water the garden if you like!

Metropolitan Market (a wonderful European 'experience'), PCC Market,Safeway, Starbucks, and the historic Admiral Theater are just a few of the great shops within walking distance. In addition there are also dozens of popular restaurants nearby to choose from.

A short drive away, Coleman pool offers a unique outdoor saltwater pool that sits on the scenic shores of Lincoln Park overlooking the Sound. The Admiral Viewpoint boasts one of the best vistas of downtown Seattle.
