About Carol Madison

Carol and Mark were both born in Seattle and lived in the Wallingford area for many years prior to moving to Alki Beach twenty years ago. We cannot imagine living anywhere else.

Carol Madison purchased this house in 1993

Why Carol Madison chose West Seattle

We lived in North Seattle for over seventeen years. Whenever friends and family visited from out of town, we would take them to Alki Beach. Then it occurred to us, 'Why not move there?' We did and we like to share it with others.

What makes this house unique

Even though you are in Seattle, you are also in a neighborhood where it does not feel like a big city. Arguably the best beach in Seattle. The Puget sound tidal waters are just two blocks away, filled with activity, restaurants and just plain walking and relaxing. Kayak , bike and even Segway rentals are nearby. And downtown Seattle, the Public Market, Space Needle and everything else is just minutes away. Easily reached by car, bus and even a water taxi foot traffic ferry. We have tried to include internet links to these.

Delightful vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

We were in West Seattle for a friend's birthday party and shared the house with another couple. It was fantastic. So clean. Everything was nicley organized and stocked. Little touches everywhere that made it feel like home.

The kitchen is well outfitted so you can make a feast for your friends or family...or you can walk down to Alki for a great dinner too.

We'll be back!

Cozy, well stocked,views

  • 5 of 5

As the title suggests it is a very cozy, comfortable home. It is the 2nd time we have stayed there and it won't be our last. The location is excellent and close to many sites that we like in West Seattle. We love the fact that there is fresh ground coffee waiting for us when we arrive and Xmas decorations were set up for our last stay.

They just do everything the right way!

Wonderful Stay in a Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four spent a week in the Madison House for Thanksgiving. Carol was very flexible with our arrival and gave us a great tour of the home and its amenities. My college aged daughters particularly appreciated the speedy wi-fi and abundance of outlets. We all loved the fireplace and great TV for watching the Thanksgiving Day parade and football games.

The kitchen was well stocked with pots/pans/dishes/small appliances/cooking utensils/spices/coffee/basics.. even a turkey pan, baster, and meat thermometer for our special dinner.

The beds were great and the house was very quiet.

We enjoyed walking to the beach to watch the seals and the quick trip to "The Junction" for chocolate croissants.

We appreciated having a place to park off street.

We also enjoyed many of the little details: the games (especially scrabble), the small take a book/leave a book shelf, the decorations for the holiday season, the umbrellas in the front closet, the fully stocked bathroom, and the great towels and linens.

We have stayed in a number of HomeAway properties in the last few years and have had very good luck - we add this to our list of great family time together in a great house.

Beautiful view!

We had a wonderful stay! The furnishings were very nice & comfortable and the view was terrific. The location was also a plus with the beach fairly close and in walking distance.

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

Cozy comfortable rental. Our weekend trip was very quick so having things so well stocked it felt like " home away from home" Hope to stay again when we have more time.

Wonderful Visit!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the Madison house. The location is so wonderful, with easy access to Alki Beach, the ferries or downtown west Seattle. The home is clean and comfortable with lots of natural light. The kitchen is stocked really well and I felt like I was at home with the gas stove and grill area. The beds are comfortable and the linens are top of the line. The gas fireplace made it so comfortable in the evenings and mornings. I would definitely come back here again.
