The Full Moon Cottage - Great Urban Location in West Seattle

Bedrooms 2
Space 1,270 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

2 + bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 6

Our urban cottage is located just blocks from the West Seattle Junction. This two bedroom house sleeps a maximum of 6 guests. Both the master bedroom and a second bedroom have queen-sized beds. A semi-private, curtained sleeping area contains bunk beds perfect for kids or the young at heart. The small kitchen is functional, but not for the true gourmet cook. The house has one bathroom, a combined open living/dining space, a washer/dryer, wireless high-speed internet, DirecTV, and off-street parking for two cars.

You'll find the beds crisply made, fresh towels in the bathroom, and coffee in the kitchen, in addition to other homey touches, so you can begin your relaxing vacation the minute you arrive.

The cottage is located near the heart of a neighborhood full of great restaurants, coffee shops, shopping, a pharmacy, grocery stores, and nightlife. Our neighbors are Salon Ef-Fekts and the OutWest Bar.

West Seattle is also home to Seattle’s finest waterfront areas: Alki Beach and Lincoln Park. Alki provides summer fun and excellent views of downtown; Lincoln Park is great for a hike in the woods or a dip in the saltwater swimming pool. We recommend riding the Elliot Bay Water Taxi from Seacrest Pier to downtown Seattle. By car, downtown Seattle is just 10 minutes. Or, another great hassle-free option is to hop on a metro bus and ride just 15-20 minutes.

About Laura and Joe Ross

Having both owned houses before we married in February of 2009, we decided to try the vacation rental business rather than sell either. Our first guests were Laura's family, in town for the wedding. Since then, with Joe's work as an entertainer and our joint project of raising our three kids, we are plenty busy! However, we take pride in putting our visitors first and have really enjoyed meeting our guests and sharing the city we love with them.

Laura and Joe Ross purchased this house in 2011

Great location!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Overall great place to stay. Lots of amenities close by, and quick access to downtown. The cottage is very comfortable with a relaxing feel. Only drawback was the loud music from the bar next door on a Saturday night.

Cute and great location!

This little cottage is in a prime location for getting around Seattle. It's five minutes from shops and dining. Lincoln park is just a quick drive. It worked really well for our family.

Wonderful place to stay in West Seattle!

  • 5 of 5

This was the second year we stayed at The Full Moon Cottage, and we enjoyed it even more this trip. It is a cozy home with all amenities needed for an enjoyable vacation. We couldn't be more pleased! There are a variety of stores within walking distance which is a nice bonus! My husband and I would love to return for a third stay!

Great location and family friendly

  • 5 of 5

Full Moon Cottage was the perfect location for our family. There are no words to capture the beauty of Alki Beach and the charm of West Seattle, and the ease of being in Seattle but outside of downtown made our vacation much less stressful. The home is located on a main street so the noise of cars driving by could be a problem for some, but we really enjoyed sitting on the porch relaxing and people watching as the kids played. We were able to take the water taxi downtown and also drive there easily. We enjoyed eating and lounging down by the beach. Our family was able to sleep comfortably as we have two adults and four children. Laura and Joe were great hosts and very communicative. We hope that we can stay here again in the near future!

Nice small home, great location!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for a couple or small family! Beds were super comfy. Kitchen small but well stocked with everything you may need. Bathroom clean and stocked, great if you forget to pack something. Very close to downtown Seattle and the Waterfront. Alki beach and Lincoln park are minutes away for great outdoor fun! There's a nice porch out front perfect for enjoying an evening drink and soaking in the city!
