About Teresa

We are native Seattlites, living now part time in Seattle, Sandpoint, ID and on our boat. We love West Seattle and feel there is no better place to feel part of a small beach community within a major metropolitan area. With the wonderful reviews by our guests of our first VRBO unit, we decided to add this second unit to VRBO in the spring of 2013.

Teresa purchased this condo in 2005

Why Teresa chose Alki

The location is very, very special. It has been in our family for two generations first as a beach cottage, in the 70's a new luxury executive suite 2 unit apartment was build on the site. In 2006 the building underwent a major remodel. This unit offers the quiet of a private waterfront location while being within easy walking distance to the fun activities of Alki Beach Park. If you choose to leave the beach for downtown Seattle, it is only minutes away. We believe this is the best place live and vacation in Seattle.

What makes this condo unique

Our property gives us the chance to see eagles flying overhead, sea lions, otters, sea birds within feet of the waterline, schools of orca when in season, even a gray whale once in a while. We love walking the beach finding treasures or simply being on the patio enjoying the sun and the sounds of the sea, walking to a restaurant or biking or roller blading from the front yard. It is inspiring to watch the boating traffic anything from sailboarders to sailing races to large commercial freighters. This place has a 'soul' to us and it and has been very loved part of our family.

Beautiful Place with Stunning Views - HIGHLY RECOMMEND

  • 5 of 5

We chose this property to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday and it was perfect! This place is absolutely beautiful and the views are spectacular. Throw in the sunny weather and it couldn't have been any better. We enjoyed the short walk to the charming town along the beach and even watched the sea lions and sea otters play from the balcony. If you want a perfect, romantic getaway - I highly recommend this property. We will definitely stay here anytime we're in the are if it's available. The owners were an absolute pleasure too - so accommodating and quick to answer every question to make our stay and my husband's birthday perfect. LOVED IT!!

What a perfect seaside property!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We went to this property to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary, and had a professional chef come to prepare a beautiful meal for us! We sat out on the deck and ate, listened to the ocean, watched a gorgeous sunset, and felt the sea breeze on our face. Being from Wyoming, this was a BIG DEAL!!!!! Absolutely perfect property and location to many restaurants, and also very easy to Uber to downtown Seattle or take the water taxi. Highly recommended!!!!!!!
