Funky Fun Alki Beach Getaway
Funky Fun Alki Beach Getaway
This is a terrific, roomy house for a couple. The landscaping is peaceful and gorgeous. And, if you like to cook, you'll thoroughly enjoy the kitchen. We loved our stay here - nearly two months! - and would stay again. The master bedroom is huge, with views that can't be beaten. There are no blinds on the larger bedroom windows - nobody can really see in, so that's not an issue, just be prepared to be up early with all the light that comes in. The soaker tub in the master is great. There's a shower on the main floor, and laundry facilities in the basement. If the weather cooperates, there are several decks from which to enjoy the amazing views, and if it doesn't, you can watch the ferries, container ships and scuba divers from the warm, dry comfort of the large living room. There is a second bedroom down in the basement.

EXCEPTIONAL New VRBO on Alki Beach!*********!
EXCEPTIONAL New VRBO on Alki Beach!*********!
My husband and I had an Incredible Weekend at the Harbor House Alki. This VRBO is like no other! Every single portion of this home has a story. The Art, placement of furniture, and the VIEW of the Seattle Skyline is something you can’t find anywhere else. In addition, the generous amounts of space, private “Coi Pond”, Tea House, and sitting area(s) make you feel like you are on a vacation somewhere Exotic. I agree with the owners description. This place will give you absolute ZEN. We hope to come back soon! JD

Year Purchased: 1964
About: THE OWNERS: In the mid 60’s the Seattle skyline had the Space Needle to the North and The Smith Tower to the South. There was nothing tall in-between the two notable structures. This is when I purchased this property, thinking I would live in the small beach cottage a few years. As time elapsed Seattle was growing, memories were created that could not be made today. My children diving off the old Sea Crest Marina piers, mooring our boat steps from our front door, sailing across Elliot Bay to Seattle, are but a few. Years went by, the memories and stories flourished and I realized I loved the house and area and was destined to stay. The house was so small it needed to grow. The first growth spurt was in the mid 70’s, when the children and the house grew taller. Next came 1980, the year I met my future husband. We complemented each others passion for art and creating with space. The spirit of the house and its land generously continued giving us the opportunity to fulfill our visions and dreams, often in the face of local growth obstacles. Today the Marina and boats are gone, the Seattle skyline is magnificent, and the house is beyond recognition of its former self. It welcomes the multitude of changes it observes and the attention it gets, but sadly regrets the day it will be replaced by a Condo-office. It deserves to be shared, through it you know the owners. Our home invites you to create your stories and memories. Enjoy!

The house offers easy commutes to and from SeaTac airport, and the surrounding Seattle area. The Seattle Metro Bus system, a complimentary local shuttle, and Cars2go are within a block.
