  • Wonderful!

    "My husband and I just left Alki-Soundview after a wonderful one month stay. The ground floor apartment was just as advertised and pictured........clean, homey,well equipped and great views! The hosts, Kathryn and John, live in the upper two floors and clearly love their home. They were very respectful of our privacy yet we knew they were immediately available should we need anything. Kathryn and John were also very responsive throughout the process, from our initial contact requesting more info thru checkout. There is plenty of on street parking in this very quiet and safe neighborhood. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed (full sized frig, dishwasher, 4 burner stove/oven, microwave, toaster, coffee pot, plenty of dishes, plenty of pots/pans/utensils). The stacking washer/dryer were great to have in the apartment. The living room was comfy and has a full size pull out bed. There is also a couple of chairs that make into single beds I think. There is a desk area if you need to do any work. And secure wifi of course. Many books, games, movies to keep you entertained. Although we didn't use it, there is also a private telephone for your use. The bedroom was quite roomy and comfortable. Plenty of closet space in the apartment. The bathroom also had plenty of storage and a roomy shower (bigger than the photo appears even). Plenty of linens and towels. We also enjoyed several afternoons on the patio enjoying the view of the sound and the Olympic Mountains beyond (and the lovely landscape of the home)! We look forward to staying at Alki-Soundview in the future! Thank you Kathryn and John!!"

  • Delightful stay in Alki

    "My friends and family visit was all the more special because of this lovely, comfortable, and true home--as other reviews have described. Gourmet kitchen for the most discerning or casual cooks, cozy beds, and plenty of room to stretch out and watch sea and shorebirds and boats out the large picture windows. The weather was too cold to enjoy the deck, but anyone thinking about a warm weather visit should consider that extra space. Janie and her manager, Ryan, worked with me to ensure all turned out well for my short visit."

  • Sweet Orange Was Perfect in Every Way!

    "We just stayed at the Sweet Orange over our spring break with our two girls and small dog. We had a fantastic time, everything was as described only better! We couldn't have asked for a better retreat, a better location, or a better host. We took the water taxi to Seattle one day, hiked the neighborhood park, and walked to the bakery in the mornings. We appreciated the quiet of the neighborhood and the nearby shopping. But most of all, enjoyed the lovely home with bright colors, where the comfort of guests was clearly the priority. A wonderful house for just relaxing or a great base for daily adventures."

  • Truly A Home Away From Home!

    "While visiting my son and grandson in October, 2014, I had the privilege of staying at the SoundView Cottage. I searched the VRBO website and was very impressed by the pictures of it and the amenities that were offered. Contacting the owner by email was efficient and Annie, the owner, was very forthcoming with all the necessary information. When I arrived I noticed the SoundView Cottage looked just like the pictures on the website. It was private, clean and had all the comforts of home. The kitchen was impressive with lots of kitchen gadgets, dishes, cookware, towels, dish soap and fresh breakfast foods in the refrigerator. My 12 year old grandson loved the kitchen so much, he made french toast for our breakfast!! There was even a washer and dryer with detergent! I enjoyed standing on the private deck and looking out onto Puget Sound. Also there was a hot tub on the deck for my enjoyment. Annie is close by to answer any questions and to replenish any items you may need. SoundView Cottage is truly a "home away from Home." I'm looking forward to staying there again the next time I am visiting Washington."
