The Junction, as we locals call it, has wonderful shops and restaurants as well as a fantastic farmers market.

This is the second time we've rented this house--we love it! Quiet neighborhood, close the good stores, restaurants, and parks, and the house itself is cozy and clean and comfortable! Love staying here with our two kids!

Loved the house and West Seattle

  • 4 of 5

West Seattle is the place to be.

I enjoyed staying in this house over in West Seattle.

Too many people in downtown Seattle for me.

I used the water taxi to get to downtown.

Alki was cool to see. Fire on the beach. Cruising on the bikes. Salty's Restaurant is the best.

I would go back to West Seattle.

Lori was very helpful. Lori helped me find the Pacific Bonsai Museum in Federal Way, Washington with good directions.

Quiet family neighborhood walking distance to stores, cafes, playground, etc.

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed staying in this beautiful West Seattle bungalow! Everything that we needed was provided and the location was perfect for travel with children. Downtown Seattle is a 15-minute drive and the beach is less than 5. Playground with wading pool is three blocks away. This vacation rental is highly recommended.

Spent 4 nights here with our two college age kids. House was perfect for us. Really nice cottage design and decor with all amenities we could ask for. Hot tub was also nice. 10-15 mins to downtown Seattle. Will stay here again.
