Rent a cabin near West Seattle

One of the most relaxed areas in the city, West Seattle is a top spot for cabins in Seattle. It’s home to many pristine beaches, such as Alki Beach, which is a popular place for kayaking, sunbathing, and beach games. You could even take the coastal trail near the beach to see spectacular views of Puget Sound and the cityscape. If you want dining and sightseeing, you can visit the West Seattle Junction for trendy shops, relaxed cafes, and casual eateries. In warm weather, you can bike or walk along the Lincoln Park bluff walking trail for some fun in the outdoors.

Things to do

West Seattle is washed over with Washington history

West Seattle vacation rentals close to the sandy beaches and dunes of Alki Point are actually some of the best placed for delving into the rich history of this corner of the Rain City. Rising out of Puget Sound and Elliot Bay, the headland is considered the place where Seattle's first settlers hit land back in the 1850s. It's also got the pretty Alki Point Lighthouse, and the popular Hamilton Viewpoint Park, where it's possible to enjoy sweeping panoramas of the Downtown's skyscrapers from the lawns.

Activities

Get busy in West Seattle

West Seattle's proximity to the ocean means you might not even have to hop aboard a boat to spot orcas and whale pods floundering the swells _ just hit the so-called Whale Trail lookouts with the binoculars in tow. After that, you can enjoy long seaside strolls and beachcombing sessions, or launch water taxi excursions to the heart of The Emerald City across Elliot Bay. And there's off-beat pursuits too _ Asian cooking classes, morning yoga sessions, bicycle tours _ the list goes on.

Weather

Watery winters and pleasant summers in West Seattle

Seattle isn't called the Rain City for nothing. Winters in this corner of the Pacific Northwest are some of the wettest in all of America, which means November, December, and January aren't the best times of year for organizing those boating trips across the Puget Sound. Much better is to search for West Seattle vacation rentals in the middle of summer and in fall, any time after June and before the end of September. That's when the rainfall subsides and daytime temperatures sit pleasantly up around 60.

Natural features

West Seattle spills into the Puget Sound

West Seattle sprawls out on the last headland of The Emerald City before the waters of the great Puget Sound take over. Peppered with whale pods and sea lions, they are a great place to come in search of rare Pacific wildlife. Beaches line the district, too, with the Alki Beach Park being the most popular _ think powdery golden sands and lapping waves. West Seattle is also one of the most convenient bases for exploring the wild and untrodden Olympic National Park, where the creaking Blue Glacier carves through the summits, Douglass-fir forests cascade down the peaks, and elk hide in the valleys.
