Alki Beachfront Condo in Stunning Location.View Mts & Island

Bedrooms 2
Space 1,100 sq. ft.
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5-6)

I just voined VRBO - for reviews, see the listing on VacationHomeRentals, listing #4934.

A truly unique place; literally on the private beach with sweeping western views of mountains and islands. Best of the city and Puget Sound - only minutes from downtown Seattle, with the serenity and comfort of a Puget Sound getaway. Enjoy the large deck, curl up by the fireplace, or take a walk on the beach - it's hard to go wrong.

Relax on the deck with a drink, a meal, or a book while watching the sun set behind the mountains, sit by a campfire; and if it is blustery outside, snuggle up by the warm rock fireplace. Read, play games at the table and enjoy your family, travel companions, or just enjoy 'you'!

The beds, queen, double, single and a queen airbed are waiting to give you a peaceful sleep after a day rich with beach activities.

Memories made for today and more await tomorrow.

Beach living, coastal living, waves lapping all provide a unique respite from a busy day in the city.

About The Owner

I am a teacher in the public school system and work as a reading interventionist, principal designee, at the elementary level. I have been teaching for several years and find it to be rewarding and provides a way for me to give to our community.

I adore the beach life and everything it includes; from quiet pensive moments to entertaining friends.

I also love anything outdoors: hiking, rowing, sailing, beach combing, skiing, and sitting by a campfire.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2001

Why The Owner chose West Seattle

This is, I believe, the best location in Seattle. Not only can you experience the outdoors but are also a quick 10 minute trip to downtown Seattle. It is the best of both worlds: the hustle of the city and the quiet and solitude of the beach.

What makes this condo unique

The stone fireplace provides a coziness to the condo and the deck offers a place to lounge, dine, read, bbq or relax. The kitchen is open to the living area so you can cook and socialize with others.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a truly amazing place!!! The view, the beach, the sounds and smells of saltwater and the proximity to fun restaurants, can't be beaten!! The owner was delightful and very accommodating. The condo was decorated with color and taste. A very fun place to be. We will be back!!

Super Seaside Condo

  • 5 of 5

The seaside location and 15 minute drive to downtown makes this a terrific unit. The unit is fully equipped and also a short walk to local coffee places and restaurants. The beach is 10 steps from the front porch so a great place to relax and stroll the beach. Definitely would rebook if heading back to Seattle.

Excellent location on Alki Beach

  • 5 of 5

My wife, 19yo daughter, and myself really enjoyed our stay at Janie's place. It is on the beach as advertised, short walk to restaurants and shops, and easy to get to downtown Seattle by the water taxi. The place was clean (important to my wife), had parking, and was very quiet. The views of other islands and the mountains were superb. We even saw some seals. I would highly recommend this property.

A pleasure for me to return. You are welcomed back anytime! janie

The location could not have been better. The back patio was on the beach. It was clean and quiet

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time at this beach house. It was a great place to relax. Sitting on the back porch was lovely watching the birds fly by, sea lions swim, and we even got to see some dolphins. The heated blanket on the bed was wonderful as was the fireplace in the front room. I didn't cook while I was there, but it was a fully stocked kitchen which is really nice. Far away from the hustle and bustle, but close enough to get to downtown Seattle with a 10 minute ferry ride.i would definitely stay again!

Charming Beach Condo

  • 5 of 5

I had a wonderful time at Janie's condo. So much so I asked her if she might sell it to me someday! There is no location quite like this in West Seattle - or Seattle as a whole for that matter. You will not be disappointed by the views. I rented a paddle board at Mountain Outfitters and paddle boarded every morning on the calm Puget Sound. It was heaven!

A very special, magical place

  • 5 of 5

There is no other place like this in Alki Beach. It is right on the water with spectacular views. At low tide, you can explore the tide pools. You can walk to everything in Alki, and it's a short drive to downtown Seattle. The condo is very comfortable with the same amazing views from the main interior--living room, dining room, kitchen. Perfect for two couples.

The home had everything you could want and then some. I would highly recommend this beautiful home, and Janie is very lovely to work with. I'd go back in a heart beat!!

Location, location, location. Seattle @ it's fine

  • 5 of 5

This condo is spectacular. View so beautiful makes your heart ache. Enjoyed every minute of stay there. Decorated w such style. Very clean. Kitchen very well stocked. There are personal items (pictures, owners collections, etc) but instead of a turn off I found it welcoming & cozy. Plenty of towels, etc. Janie's gift basket a treat! This home deserves an A++++++++. If u want an in your face water view - if you love long beach walks, if u want a definite Seattle "feel" watching ferries, barges, paddle boarders, etc from your deck & close by restaurants you've found it.
