Overview

About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3)

Beach Cottage Seattle is just footsteps from the beach, 9 miles from downtown, 9 miles from SeaTac airport, and a delightful getaway. Constructed in the 1970s, the cottage has been lovingly updated by its newest owners. The cottage’s westward view of Puget Sound faces Vashon Island and beautiful Seattle sunsets. Seabirds, occasional seals and eagles can be seen. When the tide is out, long walks are in.

Sit on the deck and watch the day light up and the sun set.

Listen to the birds call and the waves roll against the shore.

Relax in the cozy reading nook and gaze at the water between chapters.

Look around at the custom wood ceilings, cast glass light fixtures, paintings, and other thoughtful details.

The kitchen is well-equipped with utensils, dishes, pots & pans, a coffee maker, toaster, and microwave. You will have WiFi, basic cable, DVD, iPod dock, and a local use, land-line phone. The bedroom has a comfy queen size bed, good closet space and a dresser. There is a full bathroom, and the reading nook in the living room has outlets to accommodate laptop or iPad use. There is a single convertible couch/bed in the living room. Outdoor parking is located directly in front of the cottage, though a woodland trail or short hike up the road leads back up to public transportation if you want to leave your car behind.

Beach Cottage is located in a quiet beachfront community in West Seattle. Nearby (app. 2 miles) Westwood Village has a large grocery store, drugstore, Target, Barnes & Noble, and other shops and restaurants. You are just a few miles away from The Junction, West Seattle's shopping district, and Seattle’s renowned Lincoln Park, with beautiful waterfront and woodland trails, an outdoor saltwater swimming pool (open Memorial Day to Labor Day), and the Fauntleroy Ferry dock with service to Vashon Island and Southworth.

The owners are each only a short distance away, so within easy reach for any questions or needs.

Why The Owner chose West Seattle

Beach Cottage was discovered while walking in the neighborhood. It has been lovingly fixed it up for personal use and to share with others. As there are so few 'motel' rooms in West Seattle, it serves those looking for a place to stay in the area.

Lovely little hideaway on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the beach cottage. It was great to relax in the evenings watching the water or walking along the beach. Listening to the waves was very peaceful. There is a little patio to sit on and enjoy the view. The cottage was clean and had everything we needed. I would definitely stay there again!

Cozy with a Great View

  • 4 of 5

Cozy little place that has everything you need. Views are awesome right from the deck, perfect for morning coffee/breakfast. Does get hot in the afternoon sun. You will need a car as the private road to this place is 3/4 mile long with 500 feet of elevation change. Close to downtown, restaurants, and Alki beach. Owner is quick to respond and informative.

Perfect little spot away from it all but just minutes away from so much!

  • 5 of 5

The owner was very accommodating and responded to questions and requests quickly prior to the visit and during! The location was overlooking the water/private beach offering a great location to get away from it all on the waterfront but minutes from anything you would need. The cottage itself was cozy and well-stocked it was clean and had everything we needed to make our stay away from home no hassle. Often when you visit a rental you don't find essentials like spices, coffee filters, sugar, etc. Not here, it was awesome that items were available in the cupboards and plenty of them!

The bed was very comfortable and the area was very quite (which is great if you leave the windows open!). We utilized the water taxi from the Alki area and it was a great option. So fun, quick and drops you right at Pier 50 and among the key features of Seattle. Its a must to avoid driving into the City!

This is a great little unit located in an awesome, peaceful location. I'd recommend it for a single/couple to enjoy getting away and looking for something with a beautiful view!

Love staying here it's perfect and peaceful.

  • 5 of 5

It's the perfect distance outside of the city and the perfect way to wake up and go to sleep being right on the beach. It's small and cozy which is great for couples!

great views and beach access

  • 3 of 5

Small cottage at the end of a private road in a quiet neighborhood. Everything a couple needs for a quiet weekend retreat. Off-street parking for one small (compact) car. Empty lot across the street is a community beach access. Nice lanai off the front with raised deck chairs allows for sitting outside (when it's warm and dry) to enjoy the view and the sound of the surf.
