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

So much to do within walking a few minutes or riding transit/uber/lift less than 15 minutes to the downtown center. Historic Seattle is about 10 minutes with no highways needed. Quiet beach community in the city with everything you can think of nearby

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.

Even in the winter, Alki is a great place to visit Seattle from. It is easy to feel like you’re on vacation in this beach community with amazing views for miles

The PERFECT rental for our 2 families

  • 5 of 5

We had 4 adults, 4 kids 3-7, and 1 baby (in a pack and play) and the amount of space and layout were absolutely perfect. The house came with all the basics we needed (e.g., ample towels, toilet paper, kitchen utensils). The temperature and furniture (including beds) were very comfortable. Checking in and out was a piece of cake. Lisa made herself readily available, though we really never needed her b/c everything went so smoothly. The location is great. Walking distance to beach and restaurants. We would definitely stay here again without question.

Wonderful House Near Alki Beach!

  • 5 of 5

A group of us stayed in this beautiful, well-cared-for home for an extended weekend (Sept 22nd to 25th). It provided the perfect mix of beach time (easily accessible just down the street), quiet house-time (plenty of restful spaces for all of us), and Seattle city exploration (via the West Seattle Water Taxi). Lisa was an attentive hostess - we loved being greeted with homemade cookies! We highly recommend it for 2 families looking to stay together OR, since the space is actually two units (a king + 2 double beds + kitchen/kitchenette per level), any 4 person family.

Outstanding home and great location

  • 5 of 5

We. four adults and two teenagers, spent 6 nights in this home in the Alki Beach neighborhood of West Seattle. We had great weather in mid August and found the location was within easy reach of all the sites and experiences we hoped for. The property is well appointed and very clean and new. The beds were excellent. There were instructions on how to operate appliances and we had everything we needed. The owner greeted us and oriented us to the neighborhood. She was also available for questions by phone and text. Alki Beach is great for swimming, kayaking, Stand up boarding and beach games. There are plenty of beachside restaurants and the Watertaxi to Downtown Seattle is close by. We didn't drive at all for three days. We highly recommend this property. It's a great value!

This is a smoke and pet free home and all the furnishings are new. I love pets but I want my guests to be comfortable and pet hair free. If there is evidence of either, a $250 fee will be imposed to deal with wear and tear. Smoking is allowed outside and on the covered porch with the door closed.
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!
