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 Alki

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.

Alki House

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.

The property was perfect for our family

  • 5 of 5

This property and its location was perfect for our family. The location at Alki Beach offered convenient places to eat, enjoy the beach, scenery, and tranquility of Alki Beach, as well convenient transportation to downtown with access to the water taxi, etc. The condo was comfortable and well-appointed with everything we needed. The Alki playground across the street was perfect for our 2 year-old grandson. We could not have been more satisfied or happier than we were at this condo. The owners made us feel very comfortable and were just a phone call away if we had any questions. Great vacation!! Thank you! We loved Seattle AND Alki Beach!

Oh my goodness!!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time renting on these type of websites, so I was a little skeptical and a tad afraid of what we'd find on arrival. What a surprise! This house was so nice on the inside and perfect for the three of us with three bedrooms/3-1/2 baths. We could all get ready in the morning at the same time! The roof top deck was awesome with an awesome view. Everything was clean and everything we needed was there. The best part was the location - 2 blocks to Alki beach. Restaurants, donuts, coffee houses, all within walking distance. (And I've never had a bad meal in Seattle, so all of the nearby restaurants were great.) Walking Alki during the day and just sitting and smelling that salt water, watching the ferries. My daughter came over one day with her friend, and although they didn't come in because they had their dogs with them, my daughter's friend said she was going to recommend this house to her parents the next time they came to Seattle. I would definitely stay here again if several of us need a house together. In fact, this is the only place I'd rent! The off street parking was one of the perks, as anyone that's been to Seattle knows that street parking is horrendous. It's hard to say which was better - the house or the location! The owners were very nice, but did not bug us - answered our questions and were available. I definitely recommend this property to anyone needing this much space. You absolutely cannot go wrong here. Thank you so very much to the owners!

It's an awesome location and a wonderful property. We enjoyed it thoroughly. The owner's are a lovely couple and very accommodating. I've already rented it twice and would love to rent it again.

This is our third time in this great Alki beach location. It is also very easy to get around Seattle via the bus and water taxi. The house has everything you need, and the hosts are so accommodating. We were lucky to have some amazing weather. I highly recommend this home without exception. We plan to return for a 4th time hopefully in the not so distant future. Big thanks to Karen and Ken!!
