Only a short 1.5 blocks away from Alki Beach, one of the most popular destinations in Seattle. Alki Beach offers a bit of everything for everyone.
Alki Beach offers miles of walkable and bikeable paths along the beautiful coast of Puget Sound where you'll find breathtaking views of the Olympic Mountains and downtown Seattle. You'll find both rocky and sandy beaches perfect for looking for sea glass, sunbathing and watching the pink sunsets around a campfire.
The house is just a few minutes walk to Alki's most popular restaurants, coffee shops, and the seasonal bike and kayak rentals. Stop by Pegasus Pizza and Pasta for a Tom's Special at West Seattle's number one pizza restaurant or enjoy a bowl of Seattle's favorite clam chowder at Duke's Chowder House. You'll also find burgers, sushi, tex-mex, pho, sandwiches, salads, ice cream, and of course fish and chips.
Walk around the corner and in five minutes you have access to a large grassy field, tennis courts, and two playgrounds, Alki and Whale Tail Park. Behind the play field and Alki Community Center you'll find the entrance to Schmitz Park where you can take an easy, quiet 1.7 mile hike through West Seattle's 53 acre forest.
A couple of blocks away hop on the Water Taxi Bus for a two mile ride along Alki Avenue to the passenger only Water Taxi Ferry that will put you at the pier in Downtown Seattle in under 15 minutes. You'll have access to the Seattle Waterfront, the Seahawks, Sounder and Mariner's stadiums, and Sounder Seattle Art Museum and the famous Pike Place Market. Near the boat dock back in West Seattle you'll find two of the city's favorite restaurants, Marination, and the upscale Salty's Seafood.
Bus lines to Sea-Tac airport, Downtown Seattle and the Alaska Street Junction are about two blocks away.
