About Kathryn and John

West Seattle has been our home for about 30 years. We bought this house in 2005 and spent several years doing a 'down to the studs' remodel which added a self-contained apartment on the garden level for family, friends and guests. We live upstairs.

We enjoy travel, meeting travelers and sharing our love for this area. Now that we are empty-nesters, we are ready to offer the apartment and to extend Northwest hospitality to our visitors.

Kathryn and John purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Kathryn and John chose Alki

West Seattle has a remarkable mix of resources and activities. It is like living in a small beach town yet Seattle's downtown is just 10-15 minutes away.

What makes this apartment unique

This is a large, private, tastefully furnished and decorated view apartment in a great location. We are a 10-12 minute walk from the action at Alki Beach. In the peak summer months it's great to be part of the action, but it's also important to be able to get away from it. We are a few blocks from two different bus lines and a free shuttle to the Water Taxi that travels across Elliott Bay to downtown Seattle. Whether you travel downtown by bus, water or car (about 10 minutes), there is plenty to do once you get there.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had the best time ever! I have been to many places around the world and this is one of the best I have ever stayed. We'll be back sometime next year, so take care & keep up the good work here.

Thanks for the memories,

Wonderful Apartment with a View

  • 5 of 5

I stayed for about one week and it worked very well for me. A very nice one bedroom with a large living room/dining room and a good sized kitchen. The bed was very comfortable and lots of closet space. It is located in a very nice residential neighborhood. The view of Puget Sound is definitely the selling point.

A convenient location to explore the sights of Seattle, and there are a number of great restaurants near by. It is a very quiet neighborhood and there are wonderful views of Puget Sound and the Olympic mountains from the apartment. We enjoyed our stay there.

Wonderful Accommodations & Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed a fabulous stay at “Alki-Soundview”! The home is elegant, with a beautiful view of Puget Sound, and only minutes away from Alki Beach. We truly appreciated arriving to such a clean, comfortable and spacious apartment that was just so inviting and warm!

Our gracious hosts, Kathryn and John were helpful prior to our arrival providing informational updates and making sure we had local information on their favorite restaurants and activities.

This was my first visit to Seattle, and West Seattle was the perfect location. We could take a quick drive (or ferry taxi) to downtown Seattle for tourist attractions, and attend baseball games to see our Cleveland Indians play Seattle. We spent time with friends from Bremerton, and visited some of the beautiful national parks.

I highly recommend “Alki-Soundview”! I look forward to my return sometime in the future. Thank you, Kathryn and John, for sharing your wonderful home!

Comfortable, Immaculate, Charming

  • 5 of 5

We are a couple in our early 70's who needed an apartment for a week in West Seattle near the "Junction" commercial area as well as Alki beach. Alki Soundview was just what we needed. The view is wonderful, especially when the snow-capped Olympic Mountains are visible. It was easy to find parking at nearby Alki beach for morning walks, coffee, and lunches. The apartment was spacious and equipped with a full kitchen and washer/dryer. Our Seattle relatives were envious! We hope to return next time we come to Seattle.
