About the property

4 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, 8 Sleeps

This beautiful 2004 remodeled beach home is well lit with windows and skylights and comfortably arranged only 1/2 block to Alki Beach park. Each of the four bedrooms are large and fit kings or two twins. The large eat in kitchen is perfect for gathering. The living room and recreation room are both very generous. A kitchenette is available in the basement so the two floors can be separated for two guest parties. Each of the 2 king and 2 double twin bedrooms have new mattresses and frames that are stylish and extremely comfortable. The two entertainment systems are large 42"+ televisions with full cable including DVR use and good internet wifi. The BBQ and lush grass yard will be comfortable to relax and fully enjoy your stay.

Private parking and a fenced back yard are a huge benefit for this popular and fun neighborhood. Restaurants (about 20) and parks (about 5) allow for vacation fun within 2-6 flat walking blocks. Eat out from coffee hour to late happy hour, rent 6 person pedalcycles or plain bicycles, play any sport including sand beach volleyball or hop the bus 1/2 block away. Drive into downtown in 10 minutes (not rush hour of course) or take the water taxi for the great experience.

This beach neighborhood is a unique alcove about 10 blocks long and 5 blocks wide. Seattle is a friendly large metropolitan city only a ten minute drive. Beaches both sandy and rocky for relaxing or beach combing and finding sea creatures. Bon fire pits are free to use and easy to claim early in the day. Walking, running, blading, kayaking and swimming are all just part of the fun. Bussing to downtown is easy from the two main arterial roads. Tennis courts next to a great small child park (Whale Tail) are three blocks away next to a play field. A movie theater is right next to the neighborhood grocery stores (PCC, Safeway and Metropolitan) one mile away at the top of the hill.

About Lisa West

I am a contractor and developer in my neighborhood. I own several properties and am very proud of my work for others and those I have developed. This was our first family home and I care that you enjoy yourself as we did.

Lisa West purchased this house in 1998

Why Lisa West chose Alki

This is such a comfortable home with large, well lit rooms even in the basement. Guests usually are astounded at the space of this city home. The location is the best though. It is a minute walk to a peaceful walk along the water with fun around every corner.

What makes this house unique

Alki Beach is a beautiful neighborhood with well maintained parks for kids, sports, an old growth trees exploring, sand play and beach combing. All love and revel in the beauty of the Pacfic NW. The small neighborhood of West Seattle has no freeway running through it so it reminds you of an old town. No strip malls nor chain restaurants (except McD and Jack-in-Box). Tennis, sand volleyball, baseball, soccer or basketball are 1-3 blocks away. Restaurants and walking path along the water. Golf only 1.5 miles away. Quiet home and block in this fun neighborhood!.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Loved this house! My family was super comfortable with two living rooms and all of us were able to relax and have fun. The location was just as great with restaurants and the beach right there. Quiet neighborhood with tons of fun 1/2 block away

Comfy, cozy house in the greatest location!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay ay Lisa's Alki Beach house in Seattle. The fully renovated house was beautifully done, and much larger than it seemed in the pictures. We had seven adults in our group, and the house was perfect. The beds were memory foam, and we slept like babies. It was quite warm when we stayed, but the house has great cross breezes when the windows are open at night, so we were comfortable. We sat out on the large patio at night, cooked meals in the beautiful kitchen, and played cards at both the upstairs kitchen table, and the downstairs table, too. The neighborhood is amazing, and the house is less than a block from the beach and all the restaurants, ice cream places, and bars. Lisa gave us several suggestions for restaurants, and we went to them all during our stay. I highly recommend this house~ can't say enough good things about it. We had a great time and will definitely stay here when we come back. Thank you, Lisa!

Lovely house near the beach.

  • 5 of 5

Great house, spacious and filled with lots of helpful extras. Beach is just down the street. Peaceful area, mostly residential with some bars and cafes on the beach front. Good size back garden and lots of parking space.

Fantastic rental in perfect condition and great location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this Alki cottage. It is exactly as advertised; everything is in perfect condition, and it's walking distance to wonderful little restaurants and the sandy beach.

Things I really appreciated:

The beds and pillows were so comfortable. There are pillows of varying firmness, so you can find one that suits you perfectly. What a great idea!

You'll go home hating your own dishwasher - trust me.

The kitchen is equipped with exactly what you need; it doesn't feel like odds and ends and mismatched items like some properties that have let things like that go.

The windows are AWESOME.You can open them completely inward or just tilt them in at night for safety. Very few places in Seattle have air conditioning, but even on hot summer days like those when we visited, it cools down nicely at night.

We sampled different restaurants in the area. Duke's for chowder flights, Marination for Kahlua sliders and shave ice. There are rentals all over for bikes, kayaks, and the people watching is fantastic.

We had no problems at all, and Lisa was kind enough to let us check in early and stay a little longer to accommodate our schedule with ship and flights.

Highly recommend this beautifully decorated, charming, homey beach house!

Wonderful home and a quick walk to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Six of us stayed here for two nights and it was perfect. Lisa is a wonderful host and very helpful. It was an easy drive to the Space Needle, Pike Place, and other attractions while coming home to the quiet of the ocean.

Beautiful house just a half block off Akli beach

  • 5 of 5

We had eight family members staying comfortably for a holiday getaway. Large kitchen area is conducive to making large family meals. Also, great restaurants, amenities, and nature nearby. Lisa was very helpful and responsive as well.

An event or party charge of $150 for extra wear and tear on the house will be charged. Please know that I want you to have fun but not at my expense, as i am sure you can understand. The beach is the best place to gather a party and only a 1/2 block away!
