Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4), Convenient to downtown Seattle

Our calendar is up to date. We will not be able to respond to inquiries until 1/16/17. Our building is small with only 3 units, ours is the top unit with the most spectacular views. If you want to spend the day beachcombing for treasures on the beach, it's right in front. Sleeps 1-4 with 2 baths. One of the most unique aspects of our property is that it is directly on the beach where the tide rarely comes all the way in so you can USUALLY enjoy the beach & tidepools. There is normally beach access. Within minutes of arriving, you feel calm and serene as you listen to the waves and gulls & watch for seals and other wildlife. We're just 4 houses down from the Alki lighthouse. It is in lee (shelter) of Alki Point. During the summer it's calm and warm, degrees higher than around the point where the north wind blows cool marine air across the water and directly onto the beach. The private deck will add to your enjoyment as you watch the sunsets, gulls, blue heron, and sometimes eagles, , kayakers, boarders, boats, or linger over a leisurely meal. The master bedroom offers a king bed, and the 2nd bedroom has a trundle bed, which offers 2 twins, or can be joined to make a king bed.

Keywords: Condo on Alki Beach of Puget Sound with incredible views of several islands, Mt. Ranier, the Alki Lighthouse (4 doors down) & the Olympic Mountain range. Beautiful beachfront condo. Throughout the year watch gulls, seals, eagles & other aquatic sealife as well as ferries and other fantastic boat traffic just out the front door.

West Seattle is an incredible location and community. With outdoor activities such as beachcombing for treasures, kayaking, biking, jogging, walking, roller blading, swimming...etc. only a short stroll away from the condo. City life in downtown Seattle is only 15 minutes away by ferry, car or bus where you can enjoy great shopping, theatre, restaurants, museums, Pike Place Market, Seattle Waterfront, the Zoo, the Aquarium and much more!!! Public transportation is readibly available, just a 1/2 mile walk from the condo.

About Janice Crutcher, 206-679-5657

My husband and I love life, both the ocean and the mountains, and love West Seattle!

Janice Crutcher, 206-679-5657 purchased this condo in 2005

Why Janice Crutcher, 206-679-5657 chose West Seattle

We used to have a home up the hill with views of the city, but longed for the incredible sunsets & the sounds of the waves lapping the beach. This area of Seattle is truly the best, as you are close to the downtown area, but also world's away. Our other home is in the country, so we have the best of both worlds!

What makes this condo unique

Right on Alki beach with fantastic restaraunts, coffee shops (yes, Starbucks among others), a convenience store...just down the beach a couple of blocks...a short walk. This is truly a 'walkers' paradise. The 'best' Seattle grocery store just 2 miles away. There is public bus transportation to Seattle a few blocks from the condo on the Alki Beach boardwalk. Our property is next to the picturesque Alki Point lighthouse. You have the ability to be as private as you want, or as involved in the Seattle beach scene as you like! Our location is enough off of the beaten path that you can feel you are in your own private hideaway, though just steps away is the fun action of Alki Beach. Alki Beach is the only natural sandy beach in Seattle & was the first point where settlers arrived, so there is some wonderful history. Wonderful beach with firepit and great logs for furniture! The beach is really just out your front door! Truly an amazing property. You will not be disappointed! This is a one of a kind place.

20 minutes from SeaTac Airport, 15 minutes to downtown Seattle (depending on commute traffic)... Great access to downtown for those Husky or Seahawk football games!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Janice,



Oh my goodness! What a wonderful stay! It was so peaceful and relaxing. Just what we were looking for and it was just the kind of quality time we wanted to spend with our friend.



We got back this morning at about 1am after a long long drive. But the trip was well worth it!



Thank you so much for your flexibility and prayers!



It is very likely that our next trip to Seattle will include another stay at your condo!



Thanks!

The views were spectacular!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was nicely appointed w everything we needed for our stay. We cooked a meal and ate out on the patio. The views were Mt Ranier to the left and the Olympic mountain range to the right and beautiful tidal waters right in front! Would love to come here again and spend more time on Alki!

Beautful location and a well appointed condo.

  • 5 of 5

The location on the Puget Sound was perfect and was close to Alki Beach and the restaurants in the area. It was a plus to have beautiful linens on the beds and a nice kitchen to cook in. Janice was a wonderful host and I would for sure recommend staying at this property and I certainly plan to stay at this condo if I ever return to Seattle. Thank you Janice for your lovely hospitality.

Awesome stay

  • 4 of 5

This condo with its waterview on the quiet side of alki beach was the best part of our trip! Wonderful views every night that we loved coming back for. Fully equipped beautiful kitchen. Nice master bedroom and bathroom. Amazing shower in 2nd (hall)bathroom. We had two adult daughters with us. Only issues were there no counter/cabinet space in 2nd bathroom. And 2nd bedroom when set up as twin beds was short on space and comfort. But owner warned us that bed was more comfortable set up as a king. Prettiest Vrbo we have ever stayed at.
