Overview

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.

Beautiful home & perfect Alki location

  • 5 of 5

Our family has rented several homes in the Alki area, and this was by far our favorite. Your home is spacious enough to give each couple private space, but the living area and kitchen is cozy for our gatherings. We loved the views of the sound, and proximity of great jogging paths. The location was perfect - in close proximity to the bustle of commercial Alki, but removed enough for privacy and relaxation. We hope to visit again!

Comfortable like home, away from home

  • 5 of 5

Dear Rich,

Thanks for letting us enjoy the comfort of your beautiful home so well located and furnished. Surjit was really happy to meet you and your wife to personally compliment on the tasteful furnishing of each room. Everyone enjoyed the individuality & fulfillment of their needs of the room they chose ( wish there were extra blankets available for the lower level room ). Kitchen was so well stocked ( my daughter did not have to worry about kids breaking nice dishes as they had plenty of their own available ).Family was pleased to remain a partner with you for saving energy and recycling to keep our planet safe .

Get in touch if visiting New York any time.

With best wishes,

Drs Satnam, Surjit & family

Beautiful home with all the amenities. Great place to relax.

  • 5 of 5

We have rented a number of vacation rentals by owners; some were good experiences, others weren't so much. But this one was a wonderful experience!!! The pictures and reviews matched our experience. You can tell the owners really care. The house is truly a home. We visited from Minnesota to attend a wedding of a friend in Seattle. We needed a place to call "home" after wedding events and site-seeing. It was perfect - our children and friends had their own space and yet it was great to gather for meals and relaxing. The kitchen is well equipped. Rich and Jeanine provided us with the basics - which isn't always the case with other vacation rentals. The only disappointment with our trip was the weather - it was wet and chilly, but I guess it is to be expected when you visit Seattle in March. But even staying indoors at the Alki Beach Home made our trip enjoyable. Thank you, Rich & Jeanine, for sharing your beautiful home.
