Only 12 miles to Downtown Seattle - Carriage House is in a quiet neighborhood and is great for walking along the water in nearby Lincoln Park.

- THERE IS HIGH-SPEED WIFI and expanded basic cable both from Comcast

- Free parking and about 20 minutes from the airport. (renting a car gives you more options, but you can get downtown easily on the Rapid C line)

- Everything you need to feel like you are home while you travel.

- Eagles, Harbor Seals, Blue Heron, and sometimes Orca Whales

- Views of Puget Sound

- Local beach access

- Bikes to borrow

- Seattle Water taxi is 5 miles from the carriage house. It drops you off in the Pioneer Square area and stadiums for the Mariners, Seahawks, and Sounders.

There is a Queen-sized bed with a 3 inch foam top, washer and dryer, gas fireplace, 41 inch television, patio with a bistro table, and a private full bath. There is a brand new full kitchen with granite counters, glass tile backsplash, and a gas range great for making simple or complicated meals. There is a full-size fridge/freezer, coffee maker, toaster, utensils, plates and most things you would need to feel like you are cooking at home. The Carriage House has private parking with a lovely garden path down to the private entrance. (Five steps down and three up into the carriage house). It accommodates two guests comfortably. Great for Grandparents visiting kids and grandkids in Seattle or West Seattle.

The carriage house is water view, and the Water/Beach access is .2 mile walk to Lowman Beach. This park has a tennis court and stone path to a public beach with logs for climbing or sitting. There is a lovely sandy beach another .2 miles south of Lowman called Lincoln Park. Lincoln Park 135 acres and is one of the largest old-growth parks in all of Seattle. There are dozens of hiking, biking and walking paths throughout. There is also an Olympic size outdoor pool open all summer in the afternoons. For little ones there are summer wading pools and two large play grounds.

From the cathedral ceiling living area, there is a view of Puget Sound, and from the kitchen window there is a view of the north half of the Olympic Range.

The heat is a GAS fireplace with a thermostat to regulate as needed. It does take a few minutes to turn on, but the gas fire is lovely on a cold winter day.

For small or older dogs, it is an ideal location. It is only .2 miles to a waterfront park with great walking for leashed dogs. $50 extra per dog per stay.

About Kyle Winslow

We lived in the older home on the property for four years before we built the new house and carriage house. The gardens were finished in 2002. Many of the plants are from the Endolyne Garden Club plant exchange each year. There are Apple, Quince, Fig, and a few Plum trees. The other edibles include huckleberries, sage, rosemary, parsley, and lovage. In the vegetable garden we usually grow blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, artichokes, asparagus, rhubarb, beans, cucumbers, carrots, greens, and many, many tomatoes. There are about 30 pots of annuals around the property. There is a greenhouse and chickens as well. You are more than welcome to walk through the vegetable garden and grab a ripe tomato in season.

Kyle Winslow purchased this cottage in 1997

Why Kyle Winslow chose West Seattle

We live here in West Seattle because it has wonderful views and sunsets, and is not pretentious. Lately it has become very hip and trendy with great restaurants and wonderful bike trails. Many many families live in this area, and the community has a nice friendly feel.

Thanksgiving heaven

  • 5 of 5

This was an awesome trip! We wanted to make our own tradition for thanksgiving and this home made it a success! It had everything we needed to make it a memorable holiday! This home came with everything we needed and a ton of recommendations on what to do and see! We will be making this a part of our future plans and recommend it to anyone! Thank you for making this stay memorable and comfortable.

Owner's Response: We are so very glad you had a nice visit. We love this time of year here and we almost always have openings. Our favorite things are of course the gingerbread houses at the Sheraton, the Teddy Bear Suite at the Fairmont Hotel, the carousel outside Westlake Center and Dinner at Benihana - all downtown. We hope you took advantage of it all! kyle and michael

Didn't want to leave

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for several nights in September while on an extended vacation and to visit my nephew who lives in West Seattle. His family and friends have stayed in disappointing rentals so he couldn't believe his eyes when he walked into this one! (My sister will thank me the next time she visits because surely she will stay here.) Other reviewers have pointed out all the wonderful things about this carriage house - clean, comfortable, private, and amenities galore. Yes, it's a little tricky to find but once you do, it's a gem. Highly recommended.

Secret Seattle Hideaway!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What a great place to stay. Beautiful grounds, carefully laid gardens and rocks and little touches make for a perfect entrance to a super secret little cottage hideaway. Much bigger on the inside than it looks from the outside I can assure you! Stunning. Hardwood floors, retro artwork, comfy furniture throughout. Essentials of coffee and tea aplenty ( thank you for the hot water pot! ) Gas fireplace kept the entire place cozy as could be. Loved the Neutrogena bath and Aussie hair products. Shower felt fantastic ( very sturdy water pressure ) and the double curtain is great. Lots of Planet Green going on in that place and it was so nice to see it enforced. Bed was amazingly comfortable. Nice storage area for suitcase behind curtains with washer/dryer combo. Also really loved the double rug right at the entrance INSIDE for wiping and leaving shoes as it did rain a good bit while I was there. AND the key rack right by the front door! no more "Where did I put my keys?" Can't say enough good things. A tiny bit hard to find the street at night after a long drive so thank you Kyle for your patience! ( think I called her 4 times! Help! ) The cottage is perfect but for one small thing which is probably only an issue for me, and even so not a huge one: the windows have no curtains but for the bedroom. Just felt a little weird. The views were amazing though for sure. Also the cottage is close to so many places, and I just enjoyed my walks every morning. Trails galore and the walk to Alki beach and Harbor ave into Seattle is do-able at about 8 miles if you want a good hike. You can water taxi back or bus it back or walk it back too. It does get a little industrial looking at some points and so it is not for the timid but just putting it out there. The view of Seattle city front is astounding from Alki even if you never get into the city! The farmer's market in the middle of town was pretty cool! Glad I made it for that. Street was closed all morning until about 2:30. Oh, and the mailbox at the top of your entrance drive has a slot to drop your postcards and such so you don't even have to go to the post office!!! Grocery stores nearby and restaurants at nearly every turn. This cottage is a no brainer for Seattle stays. Close to, but also far enough away for a little quiet....Really enjoyed Halloween here this year! Thanks so much for your hospitality!

Owner's Response: So very glad you liked it. We will work on finding curtains that don't hide the views. Have not found anything we like yet. If you can come for longer next time, there are great hikes in the olympics and cascades that you might enjoy. There is a new Ramen place in West Seattle that we think everyone should try. For the holidays we have a whole tour downtown to see the lights, ride the carrousel, view the gingerbread houses, the teddy bear suite and eat at Benihana for a magical day between Thanksgiving and Christmas! Come back soon. Kyle and Michael

Cute Carriage Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We were "home" when we arrived each night. We felt welcomed in the neighborhood and enjoyed the proximity to all there is to see in Seattle. We would definetly return!

Thank you again Kyle for keeping watch over the typhoon warning and for the preparations. We enjoyed our time without worry. We appreciated the care and privacy.
