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.

An Excellent Retreat
This Alki water front property was awesome! It was very clean, well appointed, nicely furnished and quiet except for the ocean waves gently lapping the shore in the foreground. Just off the deck in the wavelets, seals floated, a pod of porpoises played and seventy-some sailboats with bright full spinnakers raced. Fun shops and good food &drink was a short walk down Alki Beach. We will be back again to enjoy this property.
We spent 9 day's in this remarkable location and loved every minute! If the weather was warmer we probably would have spent all our time on the deck, taking in the incredible views, soaking up the sun and just relaxing. Instead we enjoyed the view from the inside since the windows provided floor to ceiling exposure. We walked everywhere: for meals, to Lincoln Park, to the Water Taxi landing, etc.. Not often we can treat ourselves to such a wonderful location, hope to do this again.
Thank you for your hospitality!
Very accommodating. We had everything we needed.
The surround sound throughout the condo was a bonus. And the bed was very comfortable!
Beautiful Place with Stunning Views - HIGHLY RECOMMEND
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!!
