About Ken and Karen

Ken and I have been married and have lived in the Seattle area for 40 years. We moved to West Seattle to be close to our family, the water, and all the fun that Seattle offers. You will love vacationing here!

Ken and Karen purchased this house in 2004

Why Ken and Karen chose West Seattle

We love West Seattle. We wanted a home within easy walking distance to the sandy beach of Alki, coffee shops, and restaurants. We love the ease of getting to all the sites of Seattle. The water taxi ride to downtown is like taking a cruise around the Sound.

What makes this house unique

There are many wonderful things about our property. Location is probably number one. Our three bedrooms each have their own separate bathrooms. This is great for couples who want to share the property and for large families. With a beach, kids playground and park nearby, and easy access to all amenities it's an ideal rental for vacationers. And everyone loves our rooftop deck with views of the mountains, sound, and passing ferries.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your property is lovely, well-maintained just as promised in the

listing. It worked out perfectly for us. We've visited Seattle many times, but this was the first time with the grand kids. We were greeted with typical Seattle weather, but did have one day of sun affording the kids the opportunity to collect sea glass on Alki Beach. We took the bus into town and were lucky to get a singing bus driver, which made the bus ride fun and memorable. We also enjoyed the great food at conveniently located Metropolitan Market and had Pike's Chowder and couldn't get enough of it. We love Seattle and will be back! Thank you very much.

Ken and Karen have a beautiful home, Appointed beautifully. The pictures do not do it justice, we have stayed at other places in West Seattle, but this one is tops. We will be returning our next trip to the PNW.

Six sixty-ish ladies on a week's Seattle retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful visit. The home is very well appointed, nicely furnished, and the owners were very responsive. The home has an enviable location, across the street from a fun playground, a short walk to the beach, and most important to us: a short walk to public transit. There are a number of good and affordable restaurants a short walk away. We were able to enjoy the beach AND go to downtown Seattle a number of times. The neighborhood was very quiet. I think we might have been the only vacation rental in the area as most occupants appeared to be year-round residents. Walks around the neighborhood included some very upscale areas. In short, we had a great time and would definitely come here again.

We loved the location and the rooftop patio! The only problem was the pull out sofa bed. Replace it!

  • 4 of 5

My son refused to sleep on the sofa bed it was so hard. He slept on the couch which was bad because then our only sitting area on the main floor was taken as well.

Owner's Response: Glad the location and the rooftop deck worked out well for you. The sofa sleeper is just a twin size and is rarely used. We're sorry that it was uncomfortable for your son. Sofa beds are typically not the most comfortable for sleeping but we'll see what we can do to fix that. Thanks for letting us know we've never had a complaint about it before. Ken and Karen Leu
