About the Property

Gorgeous Studio just steps away from ALKI Beach, Seattle,WA-FREE STREET PARKING

Our home was featured in The Seattle Times newspaper in July, 2015.

New unobstructed 180 degree Ocean View studio on the lower half of our house, just steps from the beach. It's so close to the water that you will drift off to sleep while relaxing waves lap upon the beach. We are also minutes walk to several local and large chain coffee shops (Tully's & Starbucks to name a couple), bakery, and restaurants. You can wake up early, have a walk along the beach and grab your morning coffee and come back in the evening to dine at some nearby local favorites.

PLEASE NOTE: Our studio is a ground level rental unit with its own separate entrance and is closed off from the upper/main part of the house where another tenant lives.

Maximum of 2 guests only. No pets.

*We are not beachfront. Our studio is a short walk up the hill from the beach, approximately 1 minute walk.


IMPORTANT: We have 9 steps to get up to the studio, so please keep that in mind for your suitcases, elderly and is not suitable for disabled.
-Our house is also situated on a very steep/hilly area. Definitely manageable, but challenging for the faint of heart and disabled.

PHOTO SHOOTS OR FILMING*

*The studio does rent for photo shoots and filming but this is NOT included in the vacation rental fee. Photo/Film shoots are a different price structure, and require acceptance of filming contract. Failure to obtain written authorization will result in full forfeiture of the Fees and Security Deposit.

"Picture a perfect summer day, and chances are your thoughts will take you to Alki Beach Park, a long beach strip that runs from Alki Point to Duwamish Head on Elliott Bay. It's a great spot for a 2.5 mile walk any time of year, and in the summer draws joggers, rollerbladers, volleyball players, beachcombers, sunbathers, bicyclists and strollers out to enjoy the sun.

The widened path accommodates a lot of folks, and there's plenty of parking along Alki Ave. SW. There are picnic tables, a bathhouse housing an art studio, and a restroom at the south (Alki Point) end of the beach, and there you'll find the monument to the arrival of the first white settlers.

The water temperature ranges from 46 to 56 degrees Fahrenheit.

The north end of the beach is protected by a bulkhead, and flanked by cottages. The whole beach offers spectacular views of Puget Sound, the Olympic Mountains, and the flotilla of ferries, sailboats, steamships and other craft that ply Puget Sound waters.

At a small seawalled square that used to be the site of Luna Park, an amusement park, be sure to stop and see the old 2.5-ton anchor dredged up by the Nor'West Divers Club and secured at the site." Wikipedia

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Our goal when traveling was to "live like a local"--shop at the local markets, walk to nearby cafes, restaurants, catch a local live show, and enjoy the nature at each destination we visited. When we built our dream home, we immediately knew we had to allocate a space that would become a future Beach escape for others to enjoy. We find ourselves enjoying every minute of hosting & one of our favorite aspects of being a host is the ability to meet colorful people from all corners of the world, helping them get acquainted with our community.

Why the Owner Chose North Admiral (West Seattle, Seattle, WA, USA):
Our home was custom built to maximize on the views and location of Alki. We took careful consideration of what makes a space functional with limited space. Home was also featured in the July 2015 issue of The Seattle Times and we're proud of this milestone with our architect and team who made this home/vacation rental possible.

The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
Studio has sweeping views of the Puget Sound, Olympic mountains and Islands. We are steps away from the beach, restaurants & transportation yet we're situated in such a tranquil area, you'd never guess we were so close to the beach! Avoid all the Summer beach congestion by simply walking to the beach.
