Why 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 an alternative place to stay in the area.

very comfortable and loved the tile artwork! not a thing to complain about!
Beautiful and peaceful
We stayed at the Beach Cottage for three nights and had an amazing time. It is a lovely space, well decorated and stocked, and so incredibly peaceful with a large ocean view. I can't wait to visit again.
Perfect for a quiet get away for the weekend. Beautiful views. The owner is awesome and really helped me alot with information, not only about the cottage itself but also about the city. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone.
Great place, Great location.
Nice home. Very comfortable inside. Well equipped place. Clean. Pleasant neighbors. Easy beach access. Short drive to downtown. Would definitely book again - not always easy to find a dog friendly place in a great location.
Great beach cottage retreat
Had a very relaxing weekend at this quaint cottage. Very quite area with friendly neighbors. The cottage has everything one needs. I will list list under my favorite places to stay and will definitely be back in the future.
Wonderful cottage, tastefully decorated with owners artwork.
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.
