About Dylan Reidt

Does it get any better?

Dylan Reidt purchased this house in 2000

Why Dylan Reidt chose West Seattle

My wife and I fell in love with this property when we were 18 years old and were fortunate enough that when it came available for purchase 12 years later, we were able to buy it. Now we couldn't imagine living anywhere else!

What makes this house unique

Almost daily we find the eagles in the tree outside the window. Harbor seals pass by and salmon jump in the summer. The wildlife and marine activity provide a constant stream of entertainment. One block away is the wonderful night life Alki has to offer. Within a flat 6 blocks walk along the beach there are 20 plus restaurants. The home overlooks the #3 diving hole along Alki, with the #1, next to Salty’s, and the #2 dive hole beside the fishing pier. Divers are welcome! Enjoy the outdoor hot and cold shower to clean off gear, or just the sand off your feet. Soak in the hot tub while you enjoy the sight of The Seattle Space Needle & the Washington Ferry traffic and the Argosy research vessels that tie up in front of the house for an afternoon of lessons. Divers are always coming and going in front of the house. Watch for the night lights.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The owners are really a special pair of people that will go out of their way to insure your stay is wonderful. *Voted the best place to stay in all of Seattle.

Nice!

  • 5 of 5

Didn't spend a lot of time in the house, but was still nice! The neighborhood seemed like it had some nice nightlife. Parking on the street wasn't an issue. We were always able to find a spot at night right in front of the door.

Great choice for Alki

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay. The house was clean, right on the beach and just as shown online. We would definitely stay there again.

Wonderful location, comfortable house

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed our 4-day stay at this house. The kitchen, living room, eating area were convenient and well equipped. The beds were comfortable. (I should warn that you probably don't want to put a tall person in the bottom bunk of the bunk bed in case he bumps his head sitting up in the night, but you already knew that.) The owner, who lives upstairs in this double house, was attentive and courteous, even personally looking for an item we had lost in traveling, which was not in his house after all.

The view across the street from the house is just magically beautiful, especially if you come from the land-bound Midwest. We were in Seattle to visit relatives and had tried to find a VRBO in their neighborhood but had found none available. We are so glad we thought of Alki Beach instead and landed in this house on the beach, which gave us a vacation within a vacation.

It was a great week

  • 5 of 5

OK, we got lucky. We had some of the best weather Seattle has to offer. Great days, very little rain. And the location of this place made all the difference! It's right across from the beach. We were able to get out and about and explore right from the house. Lots of places to eat right down the street. The house was great, everything went smooth. We had a couple of questions and they were quickly answered or take care of. Dylan was a great host.

Seattle trip

Place was exactly as it was from last year. This the second year in a row we have stayed here and made our stay great. So much easier for the grandkids and us staying here.

Very Nice property - great location

  • 5 of 5

Great property, well maintained. Great communication with owner, we had to slide our reservation a few days at the last minute, good news - no problem, bad news there was a per day change fee. Probably in the fine print somewhere. Aliki beach area was wonderful. The only downside to the trip, which is no way a reflection on this property rental, is Salty's at Aliki was a bit of a disappointment - we are fans of Salty's on the Columbia in Portland. The Aliki folks could take some lessons from the Columbia crew.

The Seattle Center offers a wonderful choice for every member of the home, there’s the Opera house, Pacific Science center, Pacific NW Ballet, EMP, Children’s Museum & Theater, Bagley Wright Theater, Intiman Theater, The Center House or enjoy an evening dinner in the Space needle. Whether you decide to go on the under ground tours, or relax on the beach, all of the options are very easy to reach without the need of a car. Does Eagle viewing from your living roon chair count? How about listening to the Sea lions & Harbor Seals, more viewing of the Space Needle from the enjoyment of the private hut tub? Stay with the best, no excuse
