This location is amazing!! Sweeping views from practically the whole house. Enjoy watching ferries and passing ships as well as the Olympic mountains. This is as close as you can get to the water! Its very relaxing here yet the heart of ALKI BEACH is less than 3 miles away with world renowned bars and restaurants and recreational attractions. Lincoln park and the Fauntleroy ferry dock are less than 2 miles away as well.
This cape cod style house features a large studio area with waterside queen bed & picture window. There is also a separate additional bedroom. The house features elegant seating near the fireplace for reading or playing board games, and also has two couches and coffee table with 37' flat panel LCD TV. Cable TV service with full programming featuring recordable DVR. The bedroom features a 50' TV. Both TV's also have DVD players.
The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes and cooking utensils, we offer a commercial grade water cooler for fresh drinking water. Other additions in the kitchen include a french press and toaster oven. There is a breakfast bar with bar-stools as well as a glass dining table. Outside on the deck there is a charcoal BBQ GRILL you are welcome to use.
There are several books, board games, and cards for your enjoyment as well as top quality binoculars for our guests to use to scope out all the different sites, we've often spotted seals swimming mere feet from the deck as well as other wildlife. The outside of the deck is equipped with high quality flood lights, (light switch on the bedroom south wall, behind curtains 'PLEASE TURN-OFF' when not in use. ENJOY!) so your enjoyment of the water doesn't have to end when the sun goes down! Your assured the best rest you've ever had being lulled to sleep by the sound of waves gently tumbling right outside! You'll really enjoy the SEATTLE/ALKI BEACH experience! Well-behaved pets are welcome, upon negotiated approval and possible additional fees and/or deposits. Alki is extremely pup-friendly. There's a number of trails I'm happy to recommend. Please note that a dog and cat live on or near the premises but will not be here during your stay. It's a very dog friendly neighborhood, with several options for walking, biking or just a casual stroll on a very scenic and level walkway! Want to venture further? We are located just a blocks away from a number of nearby vendors who rent bikes for one, two or four people at once, roller-blades, scooters, sea kayaks etc ...
This is a special place that all of our guests just love! There is so much to do in West Seattle alone but this location also offers quick and convenient access to downtown Seattle. Public transportation is a breeze with a bus stop very nearby and the ALKI Water Taxi for quick trips,( 15 minutes) downtown without the hassles of traffic or parking. The Water Taxi drops you off downtown on the waterfront and blocks from pike place market, SAFECO FIELD (MLB MARINERS home baseball stadium), and Century-Link Field (NFL SEAHAWKS home football stadium), as well as many, many more exciting adventures awaiting your arrival!
We're also working on a concierge service in the near future that would include VIP SERVICES, providing beverages, food, florist arrangements, firewood, deserts, restaurant food, pizza, maid services, babysitting, dog sitting/walking, sporting/theater event ticket(s), and/or any special request upon your arrival/check-in. We’re also working on repeat clients and referral discounts, etc... We plan on changing the way individuals, couples and families take their 'care-free' ALKI BEACH dream vacations in the near future! Stay tuned!
We encourage you to take advantage of our reduced special rates and we guarantee you will have a memorable stay!!
FYI: we are very happy with our cape cod style home and cape cod style life-style, however we like to travel and we chose to make our rate extremely affordable in order to fill-up our booking calendar and it's working! The down side is that we're not at the house and recently we had to hire a new maid service (last Winter 2013) to clean between check-ins, and I guess she wasn't up to par (we we're traveling at the time), and she has since been replaced!
You know 'When the cat's away .....', or 'no one watches the store, like the store owner'. I could go on and on, but remember we love living the cape cod life-style, which means not to stress/drama about the little things!!
We sometimes stay at the BEACH HOUSE, and on occasion we travel and have other houses that we frequent. We decided to make our place affordable rather than completely remodeling and charging the actual going price for an ALKI BEACH WATERFRONT HOME, (If you can find one at all!)
We equate our place as though you were going to stay at a family member's vacation home, that's shared with all your family members. The advantages are that you don't have to buy any/many condiments, IE... steak sauce, salt, pepper, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, mustard, ketchup, mayo, aspirins, Tylenol, tums, Band-Aids, hotel-style shampoos & conditioners, personal wrapped soap(s), and even coffee beans (on occasion) & grinder and (on occasion) fresh bread(s) fruit and vegetables and fresh flowers etc...!
Recently, we even provided a Christmas tree for a daughter and her father that flew in from New York. They decorated it with their kids and Grand-kids. She was moved and teared-up, and very appreciative for the effort! Her dad was going through medical issues at the time. We love making peoples stay enjoyable and memorable! We find that most people appreciate not having to go out and purchase these and other necessary items to enhance their vacation experience! Most people fly-in and prefer not having to go shopping right away, especially if their stay is only for the weekend, where the use of their time is extremely valuable!
Those, whom have lived on the BEACH, know that it's impossible to keep the outside windows clean due to the OCEAN SPRAY, (especially in the winter months, during winter storms, which we love with a romantic fire going (firewood provided on occasion!) and a thick warm fuzzy throw blanket!) We try to live by this motto the best we can!
“YOU NEVER GET THIS DAY BACK AGAIN, SO ENJOY IT TO THE FULLEST!”
Anyways, our goal is to keep our prices low (this year the city of Seattle is trying to charge an 18% lodging tax, but we're determined not to pass that cost along to our guest), and hopefully we're rewarded with repeat guest reservations and/or referrals! - GOD BLESS AND ENJOY! - PASS IT ON -
