About Kyle Winslow
We lived in the older home on the property for four years before we built the new house and carriage house. The gardens were finished in 2002. Many of the plants are from the Endolyne Garden Club plant exchange each year. There are Apple, Quince, Fig, and a few Plum trees. The other edibles include huckleberries, sage, rosemary, parsley, and lovage. In the vegetable garden we usually grow blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, artichokes, asparagus, rhubarb, beans, cucumbers, carrots, greens, and many, many tomatoes. There are about 30 pots of annuals around the property. There is a greenhouse and chickens as well. You are more than welcome to walk through the vegetable garden and grab a ripe tomato in season.
Kyle Winslow purchased this Cottage in 1997
Why Kyle Winslow chose Seattle
We live here in West Seattle because it has wonderful views and sunsets, and is not pretentious. Lately it has become very hip and trendy with great restaurants and wonderful bike trails. Many many families live in this area, and the community has a nice friendly feel.
What makes this Cottage unique
Better than downtown Seattle: Way More Quiet. Closer to the airport using a car. Nice Parking. Great walking trails along the water. More fun wildlife - ( our property has a backyard wildlife sanctuary designation) Coyotes, Raccoons, Grey Herons, Eagles, River Otters, Harbor Seals, and Whales and Daul Porpose every once and a while.

Very nice place! It is a very nice area not very far from the downtown area.
This is a fantastic property in a great location! We enjoyed the bikes very much! Just down the street and around the corner is a great view of the downtown area. The property is very nice and peaceful! Would highly recommend staying here!
We are so happy you had a nice stay, and also glad you used the bikes to see some of what West Seattle has to offer. The winters views here at the Carriage house are actually better with no leaves on the trees! Come back in the off season anytime.

All the comforts of home
A very nice place, easy to find, very quiet with a nice kitchen and lounge area. It is very convenient to both Lincoln Park and Alki Beach.
The Carriage House was truly enchanting and beyond my expectations in every regard!
We immensely enjoyed our stay and appreciated the kind hospitality of Kyle and Michael. The gardens and grounds were spectacular during April and the Carriage House itself proved to be the perfect getaway! I highly recommend this property! I know I’ll be back!
Always a delightful stay at the Carriage House
My husband and I have stayed twice at the Carriage House, the first time in December 2017 and the second time at the end of April 2018. Both stays were wonderful. The property is so comfortable, and has everything available to meet your every need. A big plus is off street parking. The owners are very helpful, but also allow their guests as much privacy as they need. The surroundings of the Carriage House are relaxing and beautifully landscaped, which adds to its charm. Being close in proximity to beaches, parks, restaurants and shopping also adds to the overall appeal. We have family living in West Seattle, but will always check the availability of the Carriage House when we come to visit! We love staying here.
Absolutely perfect in every way! The location was just perfect for walking to and thru Lincoln Park
The cottage was perfect for us. We do a lot of walking and to be so close to Lincoln Park was a real treat. I did a 5 mike round trip walk every day along Puget Sound and through the park. The cottage was roomy yet cozy and so welcoming. Every thing we needed was there for us. The Peets coffee was a real treat! Instructions for everything were clear and we simply could not have been more pleased with our overall experience. Highly recommend this place if you travel with or without a pet. So very pet friendly and very clean and inviting.
Sweet Spot in W Seattle!
Hidden jem with great view of water through living room window. Tricky driveway and stair path to carriage house but cozy gas fireplace and all the necessities inside. Great walking and parks nearby and not far from great restaurant row on Alki Beach. Hoping I have occasion to stay here again.
Close proximity to Downtown Seattle, but in a very quiet and relaxing, waterfront area of West Seattle. Located on a bus line (Seattle metro 37 and short walk to Rapid C line)and 15 minute drive from the West Seattle Water Taxi that can take you right to the downtown waterfront.
