About Teresa

We are native Seattlites, living now part time in Seattle, Sandpoint, ID and on our boat. We love West Seattle and feel there is no better place to feel part of a small beach community within a major metropolitan area.

Teresa purchased this condo in 2005

Why Teresa chose West Seattle

The location is very, very special. It has been in our family for two generations first as a beach cottage, in the 70's a new luxury executive suite 2 unit apartment was build on the site. In 2006 the building underwent a major remodel. In the last couple of months the 1300 square foot ground floor unit again remodeled and re-furnish to enter the beachfront vacation rental market. This unit offers the quiet of a private waterfront location while being within easy walking distance to the fun activities of Alki Beach Park. If you choose to leave the beach for downtown Seattle, it is only minutes away. We believe this is the best place live and vacation in Seattle.

What makes this condo unique

Our property gives us the chance to see eagles flying overhead, sea lions, otters, sea birds within feet of the waterline, schools of orca when in season, even a gray whale once in a while. We love walking the beach finding treasures or simply being on the patio enjoying the sun and the sounds of the sea, walking to a restaurant or biking or roller blading from the front yard. It is inspiring to watch the boating traffic anything from sailboarders to sailing races to large commercial freighters. This place has a 'soul' to us and it and has been very loved part of our family.

Beautiful, ocean views!

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this property! We stayed for 5 nights and enjoyed every minute we spent there. The beds and furniture are quite comfortable and the views are incredible. It was wonderful to sit on the deck in the morning and evenings and watch the boats and sea lions and listen to the waves crash along the shore. It was also in a great location and places were easy to get to, by walking or by car.

The only suggestion I would make is to bring your own beach towels and maybe even a couple extra bathroom towels. There were only 4 bath towels for the 4 of us and we were there for 5 nights so we had to frequently wash towels for the next days' use. Other than that - we loved our stay there and would highly recommend it to others looking for a comfortable, relaxing place with amazing views.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect getaway for our family. The location is beautiful, right on the water with fabulous views.

It was idea for my husband who has difficulty walking as it is very accessible≥ The property is nicely appointed and spotlessly clean. This is our second stay at Alki Beach Respite and we plan to return.

Outstanding properties. A must if you like comfort.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the lower 2 bedroom with family for 4 days. Right on the beach. The views were fantastic.

We then stayed in the upper 1 bedroom unit for another 4 nights by ourselves.

Both units are very well maintained to a 4 seasons quality and priced very reasonable comparatively . All of the amenities are included for a comfortable stay.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed twice now at this property and recommend it without reservation. Very well appointed, good supplies in kitchen, etc. and the view! A continuous wildlife show right outside the window! Proprietors are pleasant and easy to work with. Added bonus for seniors like ourselves....no stairs from car to the unit.

Amazing View

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the Alki Condo twice now, once for Thanksgiving, and most recently for out daughter's wedding in March. It is spacious, quiet, and very comfortable, with an incredible view. We love the fireplace on cold mornings and nights, and the super sound system. The condo is in easy walking distance to lots of great places to eat and only a few minutes driving distance from grocery stores and shopping. We look forward to our next visit!
