Available August! This is a beautiful, elegant beach home with the finest furnishings, but comfy! And colorful! Designed for six guests. Enter on main floor to living room w gas fireplace, flatscreen cable TV, dining room, french doors opening to beautiful deck, furniture, grill, and private sunny back yard, shaded where you want it. Great kitchen, large master w/ queen, smaller bedroom (aka the library) w/ queen sofa bed & french doors, and bathroom w a very small claw footed tub, not really functional for bathing, since the bath has hardwood floors. Think of it as a powder room. Wifi of course. Sleeps 4 on the main floor.
Downstairs is large cozy TV/game room, huge deep L shaped sectional sofa, game table, reading sofa, bedroom w king bed, laundry room, bathroom w/ shower, garage entrance for bikes, golf clubs etc. Downstairs sleeps 2.
The beautiful large, lush back yard with big trees is why I bought the house 20 years ago. The large deck has a large teak sectional sofa with cushions. I put the cushions out in May and remove them in October, and provide a cover for protection when not in use to prevent rain damage and ask that you treat them as if they were your own.
Holidays are excluded from the discounted seasonal rate of $250/night.

Four blocks from the lighthouse, one block from beach combing, moonfish shell collecting, agate hunting and viewing seastars and other marine life, the only question will be; shall we wander the beach today, or bring our Tommy Bahama chairs down to the beach, or bike ride, and which direction? The 10 mile bike loop down Alki and back, or to Lincoln Park and the saltwater pool? Let's stop for Top Pot donuts, or Starbucks, or fish tacos, or rent a paddle board or kayak, or take the 10 minute ride on the West Seattle Water Taxi over to the Seattle waterfront. Make up a Rotary meeting at Salty's on Tuesdays at noon. Evening? The West Seattle neighborhood one mile up the hill has 500 stores/restaurants with everything you need in a little town. Or take the Fauntleroy ferry over to Vashon Island or the Olympic Peninsula and bypass the ferry mess in downtown Seattle. Driving time into Seattle is 20 minutes if you are lucky.

About the owner: Truly life is a gift and I am so fortunate to have two beautiful homes, this one in Seattle and another home in Princeville where I spend half of my time. (Check it out on VRBO listing # 679905). I have been in the Alki neighborhood of West Seattle since 1972, in the recreational boating business. After sailing offshore with my husband 1978-80 (who has since passed), I co-owned Seattle's Elliott Bay Yachting Center and Yacht Sales for 10 years, then founded YachtWorld in 1995, retiring in 2014. Still write stories for YachtWorld as their Hawaii Correspondent when on Kauai, paddling out on my surf ski on Hanalei Bay to meet visiting cruisers. My current service work includes OceanHeroes, recognizing individuals and their foundations who inspire us with their work in ocean advocacy and friendship with the sea. I serve on the Board of the Benaroya Research Institute of Virginia Mason Medical Center in Seattle and chair their Illuminations event. In Princeville I paddle 6 man canoes, surf ski kayaks, do yoga and tai chi, bike, too many fun things to name, and have the greatest friends in the world. I'm involved with the service work of Rotary in Seattle and Kauai.
Why the Owner Chose Alki, Seattle, WA, USA:
I downsized from a large beachfront home 20 years ago to small cute cottage with the best back yard in the world, but in the same neighborhood, and a block from the beach.
