About the property

BEACH Bungalow on Elliott Bay, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

One-of-a-kind lodging experience. A rare gem tucked away on the beach in Magnolia. Best of both worlds! You will feel completely removed from the world, yet you can be in downtown Seattle in 10 minutes. Quaint ocean beach front bungalow. This unique 1 bedroom master suite cottage is a rare, in-city beach front hideaway. Come relax and take in the breathtaking views of the Puget Sound. The home has a full kitchen, eating nook, sitting area and 3/4 bath on the main level. A sleeping loft accessed by ladder is perfect for up to two children. Master bedroom has queen- sized bed. Bedroom opens to the beach. Enjoy use of gas BBQ on the upper deck. Bulk head on the beach has fire pit for beach bonfires.

We're approximately three and a half miles to downtown Seattle. Easy walk to downtown. Enjoy the sculpture park on beautiful Elliott Bay. South exposure take in all of the Elliott Bay marina, Seattle high rises, Mount Rainer, Alki Point, the ship canal gateway to Seattle from the Pacific, the islands and Olympic Mountains. Beach walks two miles around Magnolia to the North and West during low tide... Walk all the way to Discovery Park light house, walk to Elliott Bay marina with acclaimed Palisades restaurant and Maggie's Bluff Beach Cafe. This home is the ideal Seattle get-away and a fun hotel alternative.

A little less than expected

  • 3 of 5

While we found the beach bungalow to a great jumping off point for our Seattle vacation it did not quite live up to expectations. That being said the owner, Bill, attended to the rental's insufficiencies. However, the small size, rustic nature and isolated location cannot be modified. We did love falling asleep to the crashing waves and waking to the ocean views in the early morning. The neighborhood, Magnolia, was terrific. We found a local French bakery and of course Starbucks only a short distance away. A somewhat dark road leads to the secluded bungalow. We felt a little isolated but were reassured this was a very safe neighborhood. Just minutes from downtown Seattle and local attractions the location is central to much of what Seattle has to offer. Overall, this rental offered many great things just be mindful this it is a little rustic.

Fantastic property!

  • 5 of 5

The beach bungalow is a fantastic vacation property! Right on the water, it is equipped generously for fun vacation. We loved waking up in the morning and looking at the water; the fire pit right above the water; and the entire arrangement and furnishing in the house. We are veterans of holiday cabins and Airbnb cottages, but this was the best property we rented!

Tiny house was just the perfect fit!

  • 5 of 5

I've spent the last 21 years visiting family in Seattle. It was our first time renting our own place, such a great decision! The cottage was perfect! The views phenomenal, watching the ferries, the cruise ships, sailboats, sunsets, sunrises so so relaxing! My girls made friends with the seagulls, walked at low tide to Maggie's Bluff restaurant, spent time in the village and enjoyed their farmers market on Saturday's. it was heaven for 10 days and we never wanted to leave! Thank you Mary for working with me on one of the best times we've had there! Can't wait to come back!

The cabin was great! They made the best out of the space. It was clean, and very well thought out.

  • 5 of 5

The view from every room in the house was fantastic. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you need. The only small complaint I have, was that the couch appeared to have some damaged springs on the chase side of the sofa. It was still comply and worked, but you had to position yourself on the chase so as not to slide into the damaged side. Everything else was perfect! Thank you for the cozy little piece of heaven.....Jo, Laura, and the pooches.

Awesome Experience!

  • 5 of 5

Just stayed at the Beach Bungalow for four days and had the best experience! Mary was so helpful with offering places to visit during our stay and helping with bus routes when we considering whether to rent a car. (The car was the right choice because we were able to see so many little neighborhoods). I couldn't have asked for more. We saw cruise ships come in to the dock at 5:15 a.m., walked along the beach at low tide, slept to waves hitting the rocks at night. The cottage is darling, very comfortable, and just as shown in the picture. We will certainly be back the next time we visit Seattle.

Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I absolutely loved the beach bungalow. We will be back for sure and can't wait to come up with a reason to visit Seattle again. We have told many of our friends and family about our stay and are certain they will book some time there even though they live in the Seattle area. It's a wonderful getaway and yet only a few miles from Downtown Seattle. The flowers on the table were a great touch too. Cheers!
