About Marian C
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.
Marian C purchased this Studio in 2013
Why Marian C chose West Seattle
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.
What makes this Studio unique
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.

Bright, clean, great location
Simple and very comfortable for 2 people. This room/apartment is quiet and has a great view. We loved the modern and uncluttered design.
Know that you have to find street parking and it can be a long walk involving some hills, rain and narrow roadways. You won’t want this location if you drive a larger rig, have lots of luggage or mobility issues.
If you don’t mind hills, it’s a quick walk to the waterfront and lots of fun bars, shops and eateries as well as great beach sitting!
Great location. Quiet and peaceful place. Away from city noise and traffic. Plenty of awesome restaurants. Close to ferry terminal. Marian was a great host. Hope to come back.
Clean, comfortable and great view
The place is small but had plenty of room for two. Everything was clean and the bed is quite comfortable. The view is really great, especially if you are able to sit outside to enjoy it. I particularly appreciated the basket of just-in-case items (charge cords, toothbrushes, etc). Marian is responsive and professional. I would only warn that the streets and access to the house are steep and not for anyone with accessibility issues. We hope to return to explore more of the beach area next time.
The property was just like the photographs and very clean.
The view of the sound was spectacular and watching the ferries go by, especially at night, was beautiful. We loved the studio and the neighborhood. Walking distance to the beach restaurants. Parking was no problem. Such an amazing central location. Marion’s communication was great!
A slice of Pacific NW Paradise
Gorgeous, comfortable modern space. My husband and I had an incredible time here. Breathtaking views overlooking Puget Sound. Great location. Short walk to the charming town of Alki Beach. Free shuttles around town & to ferry over to Seattle. We rode the lime bikes around Alki and took the ferry from Seattle to Bainbridge Island. So much fun to be had. The beauty of staying here is it is beautiful, peaceful, a great respite from the urban buzz of Seattle. Hosts are super attentive, responsive and helpful. Highly recommend this comfy, cozy well appointed studio.
To be brief, we were only able to spend 1 night here, but everything was great. The room was clean and close to the beach and restaurants. I would definitely recommend staying here. I really enjoyed the view and the neighborhood. Thanks for having us.
Just imagine if you could wake up and see the ocean and hear the seagulls in the morning? Or, possibly sight an orca or some resting seals? Our new 450 square foot suite offers you a true beach house stay on Seattle’s infamous Alki Beach. Literally just 1 BLOCK away from the Beach. You can even have your own bonfire on the beach!
