Overview

About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3)

Beach Cottage Seattle is just footsteps from the beach, 9 miles from downtown, 9 miles from SeaTac airport, and a delightful getaway. Constructed in the 1970s, the cottage has been lovingly updated by its newest owners. The cottage’s westward view of Puget Sound faces Vashon Island and beautiful Seattle sunsets. Seabirds, occasional seals and eagles can be seen. When the tide is out, long walks are in.

Sit on the deck and watch the day light up and the sun set.

Listen to the birds call and the waves roll against the shore.

Relax in the cozy reading nook and gaze at the water between chapters.

Look around at the custom wood ceilings, cast glass light fixtures, paintings and other thoughtful details.

The Cottage has WiFi, basic cable, DVD player, and a local use, land-line phone. The kitchen is well equipped with utensils, dishes, pots & pans, coffee maker, toaster & microwave. The bedroom has a comfy queen size bed, good closet space and a dresser. There is a full bathroom, and the reading nook in the living room has outlets to accommodate laptop or tablet use. There is a single sofa bed in the living room. Outdoor parking is located directly in front of the cottage, though a woodland trail or short hike up the road leads back up to public transportation if you want to leave your car behind.

Beach Cottage is located in a quiet beachfront community in West Seattle. Westwood Village, about 2 miles away, has a large grocery store, drugstore, Target, Barnes & Noble, and other shops and restaurants. You are just a few miles away from The Junction, West Seattle's shopping district, and Seattle’s renowned Lincoln Park, with beautiful waterfront and woodland trails, an outdoor saltwater swimming pool (open Memorial Day to Labor Day), and the Fauntleroy Ferry Terminal with service to Vashon Island and Southworth.

The owners are each only a short distance away, so within easy reach for any questions or needs.

Why The Owner chose Arbor Heights

Beach Cottage was discovered while walking in the neighborhood. It has been lovingly fixed it up for personal use and to share with others. As there are so few 'motel' rooms in West Seattle, it serves those looking for a place to stay in the area.

Wonderful cottage, tastefully decorated with owners artwork.

  • 5 of 5

Cottage was conveniently located for us to go to Vashon Island for one day; we spent spent another afternoon in Seattle for lunch at Dukes Charter House and another day in Tacoma to the Museum of Glass Art with dinner in DesMoines at Anthony's seafood restaurant.

We spent most mornings looking out at the Puget Sound watching some of the tugs and freighters. The weather was cool and damp so we watched from the living room area. I loved the beach seat with overhead lighting and plenty of cushions.

I lived on Vashon Island in the 1980's for ten years so this was like a return trip home.

We enjoyed our stay immensely. Perfect location; cottage perfect for a couple & 1 dog

  • 5 of 5

The property was excellent. The view from the front balcony was spectacular. Having access to the beach park across the street worked well to walk our dog.

The cottage was very cozy and comfortable. Clean and well equipped with everything anybody would ever need.

Lovely little hideaway on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the beach cottage. It was great to relax in the evenings watching the water or walking along the beach. Listening to the waves was very peaceful. There is a little patio to sit on and enjoy the view. The cottage was clean and had everything we needed. I would definitely stay there again!
