Great views, great location.

  • 4 of 5

The apt was very clean for how old it is. It has everything you need, and has fantastic views. I love staying close to Alki, because you can get everywhere from there in minutes. I would definitely stay here again.

So much going for it, but needs some attention.

  • 2 of 5

I really wanted to rate this place high - it is aesthetically pleasing, has a great view and you can tell that the owner put some effort into making quality choices in a remodel, decor, linens & supplies. BUT, because it is right on the Puget Sound it is a windy place, which when the wind hit the sliding glass door, it made a super loud high-pitch noise (similar to whistling with a grass blade between your hands) pretty much the whole time we were there. Kept us up at night & made for a less than tranquil get away. Like fingernails on a chalkboard, yikes! See below for more.

PROS: Beautifully decorated, view is amazing (Puget Sound side of Alki), great wifi & TV viewing options, quality furnishings & supplies.

CONS: Wind leaking in around the glass door & between the doors made a breeze in the living space & created a disturbing noise; no curtains on the kitchen window making it so people walking by could see in (no walking around in your pajamas!); no baking pans - not a cookie sheet, or 9x13 pan or broiler pan, which is pretty common to find in a full kitchen at a VRBO. The curtains in the bedroom need to be room darkening, as there is a light right outside the window (there are plastic blinds & cool looking curtains, but it was still pretty light). The floor is super slanted, probably from the foundation settling (a tennis ball would roll pretty fast if set on the floor). Not a big deal to us, but something to be aware of.

SIDE NOTE: I would TOTALLY want to stay here again if these things were addressed. (Again, the floor not included to meet our needs.)

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback! The sliding glass door must not have been completely shut all the way tight. If it was, it would not have made a sound. I have posted a label on the door to let people know. Blinds have been ordered and soon will be installed on kitchen window. Additional baking pans have been added. The building is old and has settled over time... I kind of like it :)

Really nice romantic view from the living room couch or balcony!

  • 5 of 5

I liked the property very much. It is in a nice quite beach front neighborhood, removed from the hustle of downtown. It's interior is nice and a nice comfortable King Bed with a descend fully

equipped kitchen. I could move in and stay and enjoy it for a long while!
