West Seattle bungalow description

Alki Beach Bungalow: 1 block from beach - newly remodeled! This is a brand new VRBO listing.

While in Seattle, stay in one of the most magical areas of the city: Alki Beach! As you step out the front door of our completely remodeled bungalow, the beach is one block away in either direction.

PLEASE NOTE: This is a brand-new VRBO listing!

Our bungalow is ideal for anyone looking to have a 'home away from home' in Seattle. Why stay in an overpriced hotel when our beach bungalow provides all the comforts of home, at a fraction of the price.

Our beach bungalow offers:

A modern, completely remodeled interior - no musty, rustic kitchens or bathrooms to deal with here!

Two bedrooms and 1 bathroom with tub and shower. The living room also offers a large leather sofa and a daybed (each would sleep 1). Sleeps a maximum of 6 (two in master bedroom, two in second bedroom, and 1 each on the large leather sofa and the pullout daybed).

Spic N Span environment - we clean EVERYTHING from top to bottom before you arrive, even down to laundering the comforters. And we are GREEN. Our cleaning service uses green cleaning products whenever possible when cleaning, so you don't have to worry about allergies or sensitivities to chemicals. Our property is completely NO SMOKING. And we don't use chemicals on the lawns either.

Our sheets and towels are high quality, 500 thread count. How many times have you stayed in a vacation rental that's had cheap, scratchy sheets and garage-sale towels? Not here.

Our mattresses in both bedrooms are new and high quality queens. One is memory foam, which means you'll get an excellent night's sleep during your stay. The other is a regular, brand new firm spring mattress.

The back yard is expansive - perfect for relaxing after a day of exploring West Seattle and the City. You'll find a barbecue, a fire pit, and comfortable chairs waiting for you. There's also a large lawn area for kids to stretch their legs and burn off energy.

Everything you need to cook a meal or just fix a snack or drinks is waiting for you in the huge, brand new kitchen. All new appliances, marble counter tops, tons of cupboard space, and new plates, cutlery, pots and pans, a variety of spices and oils, etc.

Brand new double-pane windows mean no drafty nights.

The furnishings are in great shape and mostly brand new. The bungalow is minimally and tastefully furnished.

We have created a guide to staying at our bungalow that is both in hard copy form and also digital form, accessible from a smartphone. Included are photos and videos showing how to use the TV, BBQ grill, lockbox, and more.

The bungalow's location is just a block from the beach, but in a quiet area with plenty of street parking available.

One block away: a variety of shops and restaurants that line the beach, including Cactus Restaurant, Starbucks, Tullys.

The city bus stops just outside the front door, with other bus lines stopping just across the street. Incredibly easy access to the rest of West Seattle and downtown Seattle.

Renting a car isn't really necessary when staying our beach bungalow. There are a variety of other transportation options available to you.

West Seattle water taxi offers a free shuttle that stops a block away from your beach bungalow. The water taxi is a quick and inexpensive way to get from Alki to Downtown.

The BEACH is just a block away, in either direction! Alki Beach offers everything from open water swimming to sunbathing to beach volleyball. Bikes and surreys are available to rent, and there's a wide bike path and jogging path.

The WEST SEATTLE JUNCTION is just a quick Car2Go ride or bus ride away. Many shops and restaurants to browse around in here.

Car2Go offers service on Alki and all of West Seattle, which means a rentable smart car is usually just a block or two away.

Metropolitan Market is just up the Admiral Hill, as is Safeway, Bartell Drugs, etc.

We live just two blocks away, and are just a text, phone call or short walk away in case you need any assistance at all! We're happy to meet up with you to tell you about our favorite things to see and do in the city.

The beach neighborhood is a mixture of bungalows, low-rise apartments and higher-end homes. There are families here, but also plenty of younger folks. Families will appreciate the many close-by parks and ball fields.

If you enjoy beach living, then you'll love our bungalow. The vibe in a beach community is different - laid back and friendly. We love it, and we know you will, too!

              Car: Not Necessary

              One block away: a variety of shops and restaurants that line the beach, including Cactus (Mexican) Cassis (French Bistro), Starbucks, Tullys and much more.

              The city bus stops just outside the front door, with other bus lines stopping just across the street. Incredibly easy access to the rest of West Seattle and downtown Seattle.

              Renting a car isn't really necessary. There are a variety of other transportation options available to you.

              West Seattle water taxi offers a free shuttle that stops a block away. The water taxi is a quick and inexpensive way to get from Alki to Downtown.

              The BEACH is just a block away, in either direction! Alki Beach offers everything from open water swimming to sunbathing to beach volleyball. Bikes and surreys are available to rent, and there's a wide bike path and jogging path.

              The WEST SEATTLE JUNCTION is just a quick Car2Go ride, bus ride away or urban walk away. Many shops and restaurants to browse around in here.

              Car2Go offers service on Alki and all of West Seattle, which means a rent able smart car is usually just a block or two away.

              Metropolitan Market is just up the Admiral Hill, as is Safeway, Bartell Drugs, etc.

              We live just two blocks away, and are happy to meet up with you to tell you about our favorite things to see and do in the city.

              The beach neighborhood is a mixture of bungalows, low-rise apartments and higher-end homes. There are families here, but also plenty of younger folks. Families will appreciate the many close-by parks and ball fields.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2014

              About the owner: I'm a native of Seattle and can't imagine living anywhere else! Living on Alki Beach is like being on vacation year-round. I'd be happy to give you insider's tips on my favorite things to do, see and eat in the Emerald City. I have been in the travel industry since the time I was 8 years old. Don't let the fact that I don't have many reviews sway your decision to stay in our bungalow - we have a wealth of hospitality experience!

              Why the Owner Chose West Seattle:
              I've lived close to a beach most of my life. Initially it was in Hawaii, where I went to college. Then after moving back to Seattle, I moved close to Alki Beach. There's something special about this neighborhood. Alki Beach has great energy. There is always something happening, whether it be a street fair, a volleyball game at the beach, or just sitting at Cassis, the French Bistro, and having a glass of wine while watching a technicolor sunset. I own three properties in this area and wouldn't have it any other way.

              The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
              From our bungalow, there is beach one block away, in either direction! It's hard to beat that. Large back yard is perfect for get-together with friends (there's a fire pit)! - or allowing kids to run of energy. House looks like a charming bungalow from the outside, and is completely remodeled on the inside. Expect hardwood floors, new carpet in the bedrooms, and marble counter tops in the kitchen. New appliances as well. The location cannot be beat. Restaurants and shops and the BEACH are one block away!
