Large, luxury 1 bedroom 2 bathroom beach front unit with spectacular views
We are native Seattlites, living now part time in Seattle, Sandpoint, ID and on our boat. We love West Seattle and feel there is no better place to feel part of a small beach community within a major metropolitan area. With the wonderful reviews by our guests of our first VRBO unit, we decided to add this second unit to VRBO in the spring of 2013.
Teresa purchased this Condo in 2005
Why Teresa chose West Seattle
The location is very, very special. It has been in our family for two generations first as a beach cottage, in the 70's a new luxury executive suite 2 unit apartment was build on the site. In 2006 the building underwent a major remodel. This unit offers the quiet of a private waterfront location while being within easy walking distance to the fun activities of Alki Beach Park. If you choose to leave the beach for downtown Seattle, it is only minutes away. We believe this is the best place live and vacation in Seattle.
What makes this Condo unique
Our property gives us the chance to see eagles flying overhead, sea lions, otters, sea birds within feet of the waterline, schools of orca when in season, even a gray whale once in a while. We love walking the beach finding treasures or simply being on the patio enjoying the sun and the sounds of the sea, walking to a restaurant or biking or roller blading from the front yard. It is inspiring to watch the boating traffic anything from sailboarders to sailing races to large commercial freighters. This place has a 'soul' to us and it and has been very loved part of our family.

Best location ever!
If you like to be right on the water, and I mean right ON the water, with views of islands, lighthouse, and even Mt Rainier, this is the place for you. Sitting on the deck, watching seals, sunsets, ferries, sailboats, it's amazing. The condo is super nice, clean and comfortable. Loved the king bed, it was so comfy! Teresa and Michael were super friendly, helpful hosts. Thanks for sharing your piece of heaven with us!
We so enjoyed meeting you both. Please come back again. Wishing you all the best.
It was beautiful! We celebrated our 31st anniversary and it was perfect!
Thank you for the comments. The Alki Retreat is such a romantic place and I am happy you spent your special day there. We hope to see you again.
This place is wonderful, definitely our favorite vacation spot in Seattle!
What a beautiful place. Great location, easy walk to restaurants, fully furnished with all of the conveniences. It had a very comfortable bed and pillows. As the tide rolled out each morning, we were able to see a seal perched on his favorite rock in the sun. They even include binoculars for your enjoyment.
Thank you Henry, it is so nice to know when a guest enjoys themselves. Please come visit us again.
The condo is absolutely beautiful and the views from the deck were spectacular. Would absolutely stay here again!
Thank you Karen, we would love to have you as a return guest.
