Authentic Seattle Experience!

  • 4 of 5

I love staying here. This is our 2nd stay at the Alki house. I grew up in this neighborhood and love everything about it. Foot traffic noise and no A/C may be an issue for some people IF it happens to be hot. I, however, enjoy the cool ocean breezes and being ½ a block from the beach and all the classic dining (Spuds and Alki Cafe).

Really GREAT place!!!

  • 5 of 5

My brother and I recently stayed at the Alki House and it worked out perfectly. The home is like a piece of artwork. Janet has masterfully set the place up to include everything you'd need for a very enjoyable stay. There was not a single thing I would consider as a negative. The setup is very well executed, no details are lacking. 1/2 block to Alki beach and all it has to offer. We were very pleased to have stayed there and will definitely try to book again in the future. Thank you Janet for your warm hospitality. ....... Greg J.

Wonderful place to stay in Seattle!!

  • 5 of 5

The Alki house worked great for our stay of my husband, myself and our 13 year old daughter. We were in town for a regional soccer tournament for our older daughter who had to travel w her team. Proximity to downtown was great. An easy drive over or water taxi worked out great. Literally half a block from the boardwalk and beach. The bed was very comfortable and the pullout couch was comfortable according to my daughter. Space overall is cozy and outdoor area/yard is great to cookout and watch all the people go by. It's definitely in a hopping area which we enjoyed. Parking could be tight during the afternoon and eve but we always found a place within a block or two and if we waited till about ten then there was one right in front of the house. The house had all the comforts of home. Kitchen items were sufficient for the few times we cooked in. It was a great complaints!!!

Close to the beach.

  • 3 of 5

The house is nice and small. Owners are super great and had all you need in the house. It's close to the beach which is really nice. The bathroom and kitchen are very small, which is harder with kids. If the weather was nicer when we were there it would have been better, then we could have been outside more. It works have been nice to have a little fire pit outside. We are from Montana though where everyone has one. I don't know Washington codes on that.

Super cute little house. This was just perfect for my husband and I. Loved how close it was to the beach and all the great shops and restaurants along Alki Blvd. We were able to walk to just about every place we wanted to go. Loved it!
