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!!

This is the ONLY place you'll want to stay if you're visiting the Seattle area...

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to the area, and we couldn't have chosen a better place to stay. This was the perfect location - walking distance to restaurants and public transportation, stunning views, comfortable and welcoming accommodations, and best of all, the fabulous beach with its soothing surf. We enjoyed searching for beach glass, seeing all the starfish, and photographing the lighthouse around the corner. Very private, very quiet area which was great for us as we just wanted to rest and relax each evening when we returned from our city and countryside jaunts. Duke's seafood was amazing; we also happened onto an art fair there on the 'island' while we were staying - bought some cool and unique souvenirs. Everyone was friendly, and our hostess, Janie, was super accommodating as well as a wealth of information! Another plus for us was having washer/dryer - we had a 12-day adventure planned, and packed for only 4 days as we chose locations with easily accessible laundry facilities. Our stay on Alki truly set the tone for a fantastic time; our tour guide picked us up there since its relatively close to downtown (you can see the Space Needle from the Point just around the corner). The beds were super comfy, and hubby liked the big screen TV. Loved the colorful decor, too. The condo was spotless, and the owner has obviously travelled extensively as anything you can even IMAGINE wanting is there and readily available - even had some fridge items already stocked for us. I highly recommend this rental, can't say enough about how perfect it was for us - we stayed at 6 different accommodations (some basic lodges in ONP, others 4-star hotels in Canada) during this exploration vacation, and this condo was our definitely our favorite.

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.

Beautiful Views.

  • 5 of 5

They patio was our favorite place to be. Watching the boats and the tide come in and out. Located just a very short walk from the park on ALKI but far enough to be quiet.

Not what was expected from pictures and description

  • 1 of 5

This condo was a big disappointment for our group of 4 adult women and two toddlers, staying for 3 nights.

The location is great and it is easy walking to Alki restaurants and shops. The beach is right in front of the condo and views are beautiful. Other than that, nothing was as either pictured or described on the VRBO website.

The condo appeared to be occupied by someone, as all the closets were full, from top to bottom, with clothes and boxes. Personal effects were everywhere. Linen was scarce or non-existent.

Beware that, for our stay, every flat surface was covered with knick knacks and other objects. Absolutely no place to put your things, even a toothbrush!

Beds are not as described or pictured...there is no double bed (an oversize twin is the bottom bunk of a bunk bed set that had no ladder and no guardrail when we were there); the queen blow-up bed was hard to find in a stuffed closet, and then we couldn't locate linens or a blanket/pillow for it; there is no "sleep sofa or futon", just a regular couch that can't really serve as a bed.

There were other issues and we couldn't contact the "property manager" directly as the phone number we were given in writing was incorrect; the owner was out of the country, and we had to email and await a reply to get the correct number.

The owner claims she has corrected some of the issues, but 3-1/2 months have gone by and the same pictures (not showing the actual condition of the condo) and same false descriptions of beds, for example, are still on the website.

Be sure to ask specific questions about this condo--its contents, types of beds and overall readiness for guests. Otherwise, you may be as surprised as we were about what was actually there and how poorly it is equipped or set up for "guests", especially given the rental price per night.

Owner's Response: I was shocked to read your notification as I thought the matter was settled. I'm unclear as to your motivation in continuing this pursuit. Your statement to me was filled with so many untruths; I do honestly believe you co mingled or confused my property with others you read. When one works with people they don't know; they are opening themselves up to possible problems and difficulties as evidenced by this. I have put myself in this vulnerable position, to which I will be aware of in the future.. 4 months ago you stayed in my beautiful beachfront condo and during your visit I never heard a complaint or anything from you, leading to believe you were happy and satisfied. However a few days after your stay I received a seething email filled with so many untruths and false accusations. I responded to your threat of refunding your money in full or you would write a detrimental review. This kind of situation is so foreign and new to me that I did follow your threat and return your full payment. You never responded to me again. Recently I have been advised by customer support at vrbo that I should not have done this as it is often a scam by renters. Now you have received full payment AND written an untrue, possible damaging review! The reason I did try to work with you and cater to your threatening email, despite the untrue statements by you, is that I really thought this would be the best was to work with you. Human nature, at least in my eyes, is to believe one will be treated as one treats others; so I believed your statement that I would handle my property, which I have, and you would not write a poor review if you were be refunded, which you have been. You did not follow your words. I take great pride in providing a beautiful home and respite on the beach for the travelers from all around the world and I have always been met with satisfaction, kindness' , great reviews and appreciation. When guests arrive they are met with cleanliness , well appointed and beautiful surroundings . So this is an enormous shock to me personally and to my level of trust in another's words. I ask others that if this review is published, you, the traveler, believe and trust in the reviews of other guests as well as my character and personal merit
