Beautiful Alki Beach Home

Alki, West Seattle, Seattle, WA, USA
  • House3025 sqft
  • Bedrooms4
  • Sleeps8
  • Bathrooms4
  • Half Baths0
  • Minimum Stay3 - 4 nights

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 Alki

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 four bedrooms and four baths. All four bedrooms have their own 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.

                                                              We enjoyed everything about this rental. It literally had everything we needed, and then some, for our five day stay, particularly the kitchen. The living room furniture was comfortable which often isn't the case with rentals and everyone agreed all of the beds were super comfortable. The house was likewise immaculate. Street parking directly in front of the house was always available. The walking path on the water is right across the street, and despite the rainy, cold weather we still took a walk every day. In the process of booking this property, I had some minor complications with VRBO (not the home owners) , and the owner Rich helped immediately. There is no question we would stay here again. Thanks Rich for sharing this lovely home!

                                                              This home is truly lovely, beautifully appointed and very well kept, with wonderful views of Alki beach. Our hosts were quite helpful and Jeanine was very gracious. Upon arrival, there was a selection of wines and a delicious coffee, all certainly appreciated. There were so many thoughtful details in the home that we felt truly pampered. My entire family was very comfortable during our stay and we would certainly recommend this home to all. As a result, our stay in Seattle was wonderful! Rich and Jeanine, thank you!

                                                              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!
