West Seattle apartment description

The Beach Drive Carriage House is a great spot for touring Seattle and taking in a sport event at the stadiums without dealing with the noise and parking hassles of the city. There is a water taxi 5 miles from the carriage house that drops you off in the Pioneer Square area.

The Carriage House has private parking with a lovely garden path down to the private entrance. (Five steps down and three up into the carriage house). It accommodates two guests comfortably, with a sofa bed pullout for a third. ($30 to make up the sofa bed for each stay)

The carriage house is water view, and the Water/Beach access is .2 mile walk to Lowman Beach. This park has a tennis court and stone bath to a public beach with lots of logs for climbing or sitting. There is a lovely sandy beach another .2 miles south of Lowman called Lincoln Park. We have two bikes that make it even easier to get there. There is also an Olympic size outdoor pool open all summer in the afternoons. For little ones there are summer wading pools and two large play grounds.

Inside the cottage, there is lots of space for reading, relaxing, or watching television. There is a gas fireplace, jacuzzi tub, and washer-dryer.

There is a brand new full kitchen with granite counters, glass tile backsplash, and a gas range great for making simple or complicated meals. There is a full-size fridge/freezer, coffee maker, toaster, utensils, plates and most things you would need to feel like you are cooking at home.

From the cathedral ceiling living area, there is a view of Puget Sound, and from the kitchen window there is a view of the north half of the Olympic Range. The sunsets are just spectacular.

Located just north of the 135 acre Lincoln Park, the Beach Drive Carriage House is ideal for walking, biking, running, beach combing, and even whale watching. The surroundings are quiet and peaceful.

For small or older dogs, it is an ideal location. There is a gated porch where dogs can relax and it is only .2 miles to a waterfront park with great walking for leashed dogs. $50 extra per dog per stay.

There is a huge vegetable garden and chicken coup near the parking area. Children might enjoy having a peak at the chickens or eggs. There is a great farmer's market every Sunday in the West Seattle junction with flowers, jams, fish, produce, meats, and jars of many other local things.
