Beautiful Alki Beach Home

Bedrooms 5
Space 3,025 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 4 nights


About the property

Custom built and just across the street from the shores of the Puget Sound.

For the past few years we have rented our home to a variety of Seattle Mariner baseball players. While we enjoyed having the players and their families stay here for the 6-month baseball season, our East coast friends and family members were not so happy - they missed being able to come out and stay with us during the beautiful Seattle summers. So this year we are making our home available to VRBO clients to give us the flexibility to still have occasional access to accomodate our family. You’ll feel right at home in this custom built Alki home. Located just steps from the beach and a couple minute walk to all the restaurants and shops on Alki. If you like to cook or entertain you’ll love the gorgeous chefs kitchen. Spend your evenings enjoying the beautiful sunsets on one of the view decks or in the private backyard patio. Completely furnished with everything you will need during your stay (from linens and kitchenware to cooking spices ). Just move in and head to the beach.

About Rich Kline

My wife Jeanine and I met in Florida while on separate business trips. I was living in Seattle and she was living in Richmond, VA. After a little over a year of long distance dating I decided to move to the east coast to continue our relationship. Five years later we decided to return to the great northwest. We considered many of Seattle's wonderful neighborhoods in deciding on where we would like to settle down but one stood well above the rest. There were none quite like the Alki neighborhood. Surrounded by the waters of Puget Sound and views of the Olympic Mountains it is a very special place. We could not find a home that had the features we wanted so we ended up buying a little cottage that was built in 1918 and did a complete "renovation". We acted as the general contractors and did a lot of work ourselves and ended up with a home we love. But now we are traveling more and have decided to let others experience Alki from the comforts of our home. If you have not been to Seattle or visited Alki Beach you will be in for a real treat. We have not found many places like it in our travels and can't imagine living anywhere else.

Rich Kline purchased this house in 2001

Why Rich Kline chose West Seattle

We designed our home to have a welcoming feel. Even though it is over 3,000sf we tried to make it very comfortable. We have five bedrooms and four baths. Three bedrooms have their own bath with two that share a bath. Being located just across the street from the shores of the Puget Sound walking along the beach as the sun sets behind the Olympic Mountains makes for a special evening. If dinner out is something that interests you all the restaurants Alki has to offer are just a few minute walk away.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 10 came into town from various locations for our son's wedding. The owners were fabulous, greeting us when we arrived to go over necessities. The house was beautiful and immaculate. There were so many thoughtful provisions and unexpected additions which made the stay very comfortable for all of us (all adults). The beds were comfortable as well! The location was amazing. We were able to take Morning walks along the Sound, and to nearby restaurants.

An absolute gem!

Fantastic House and Area!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 6 women and this house was a perfect fit. Plenty of room for everyone. Rich, the owner, greeted us and gave us a tour along with suggestions of things to see and do. The house was extremely clean and well stocked. Alki beach is a great area to stay while visiting Seattle. It's close to downtown and the water taxi gives you easy access to the city. Highly recommend!

Fantastic Girls Getaway to West Seattle!

  • 5 of 5

We had a girls getaway for one week with five young at heart ladies from high school. The girls were from Minnesota, Oregon and Iowa. The home is very spacious, clean, well stocked and exactly the way they have describe it. Beautiful and all the amenities you need. The kitchen is an open concept with a family room, dining area and one queen bedroom with an adjacent bathroom on the main floor. Very spacious for five people. The master bedroom is located on the second floor and the deck was great to sit and sun and have a glass of wine and crackers. All five ladies had their own bedroom. So nice. The property is about a minute from Alki beach and great area to get in a morning run or walk. The owners Rich and Jeannine meet you when you arrive and are wonderful and very accommodating. Some of the things we did was the Space Needle, Chihuly Garden and Glass, Chittenden Locks, Pikes Place Market, Wineries, Bainbridge Island, Downtown Seattle, Ballard and The Junction. One of the girls drove from Oregon so we had one car for five individuals and that worked great. The other four girls took a car service to and from the airport (about 20 minutes from the airport - not in rush hour) and that worked great.

We had such a great time and so much fun on this trip. Location and property is absolutely five stars. All five of us highly, highly recommend this property to others and would not hesitate to stay here again.

Fabulous house in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this great Alki house. It is definitely 5 star, first class. We were so comfortable and able to accomodate everyone in our family. The house is beautifully decorated and had all we needed. We cooked breakfast everyday and one dinner and it worked out great! We took walks along the beach road on the path and enjoyed the restaurants nearby. This house is well taken care of inside and out, with lovely touches and sparkling clean. We hope to stay here again someday for another family gathering even though we only live an hour away. It was totally worth it! Rich, the owner was kind, very personable and helpful.

Beautiful home in ideal location

  • 5 of 5

Two families shared this home as we enjoyed wedding festivities in Seattle. The home easily accommodated all 9 of us and we enjoyed the proximity to Alki beach, restaurants and shops. It was so pleasant to take walks and enjoy the porch and upper decks between events. The hosts were extraordinarily kind and accommodating.
