Overview

West Seattle House Rental Photos and Description

Four bedrooms, sleeps 8 people,

Our home is your perfect home away from home – located in West Seattle with a spectacular view of Elliot Bay, downtown Seattle, Washington State ferry traffic and more. Sit on the outdoor deck in the sun or next to the propane heater. Better yet, sit in the outdoor hot tub to watch the ferries travel across Elliot Bay, soak in the endless views of the water, the Cascade Mountains, the Space Needle and the entire Seattle skyline. Or if you prefer- stay inside, take advantage of free wireless internet while looking out the huge picture windows by the fireplace from the comfort of the family room. (Please note: the hot tub is not a promised amenity.)

Our gourmet chef’s kitchen has recently been remodeled and has every convenience. Cook in luxury surrounded by cherry cabinets, granite counter tops, and stainless appliances. The gas grill is just steps away on one of the three view decks. Enjoy hours of entertainment in our full rec room complete with pool table, fireplace, and big screen TV.

Our home now has free wireless internet!

Great views. Not much else good say.

We rented the house for a family Christmas and family wedding. At first glance the house seemed fine (we arrived in the evening), but after further inspection we found the house to be very dirty, dusty and not well maintained. The carpets were dirty and stained as was the leather furniture. The bigger issue is the only heat source is on the main level. There is NO heat in the basement or upper level. It was so cold we had to call to have space heaters brought in which helped, but only minimally. The other major issue was the missing door knob on the door to the basement. My 1 year old granddaughter was able to open the door (because we couldn't shut it completely) and fell down the stairs which resulted in a cut lip and black eye. We found tools and installed the door knob to avoid another accident. The photos of the kitchen looks much better in the photos than in person. The cabinets and drawers were dirty on the inside (crumbs in the silverware drawers), the kitchen faucet was loose and the kitchen amenities were adequate, but pretty old and mismatched. There were only 3 wine glasses for a house that states it's equipped for 8. There is very limited parking, the single pane windows fog up so you can't always enjoy the view and the house basically was a disappointment. We were given our cleaning deposit back which was a small gesture to compensate for the condition of the house. We would not recommend this property and will not be staying there again.

Spectacular Views!

We came to Seattle For a wedding and a fun vacation with friends. When we arrived at West Seattle Haven, we were blown away by the beauty and amazing views of Seattle from the home. Each level of the home has the most amazing views. The decor is beautiful. All of the bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. We used public transportation and were very pleased with how easy it was. The house is in a great location for walkers!! The transactions with the owner were very easy and pleasant. All of my many questions were answered!! We can't wait to come back. Thanks for making our first visit to Seattle so wonderful!!

Spectacular Views!

  • 5 of 5

We came to Seattle to attend a wedding. When we walked in the house, we were blown away by the amazing views from the living area and kitchen area! The outdoor areas are great for relaxing and taking everything in. The whole house is so comfortable that you feel right at home. No matter what time of day or night, you will always have wonderful views of downtown Seattle. The transactions with the owners were prompt, courteous, and extremely friendly. We will definitely be back! Thanks for making our trip so much fun!

OMG! What a View!

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazing. All three floors have full picture windows facing Seattle. Beautiful view day and night. We had family and friends (8) there for a Wedding and the house was near perfect. Few less than perfect things were: a house that size could use one more bathroom, but we made do. We bought a couple more fans as we were there the One warm week in Seattle. Three Queen Beds, one double bed and one sofa bed. Kitchen is big and well stocked. Each level has a balcony. Middle/Main level has Breakfast area, Dining area, large living room with a PIANO. Lots of seating with bar stools around kitchen/dining counters. Furniture on the Balconies with a propane grill. Upper level is a private room with french doors to balcony. Lower level has the only TV and what else?... A POOLTABLE! What more could you want?? How about a HOT TUB?! With a clear view of the SpaceNeedle. Located on a quiet street in West Seattle. One thing, not a lot of parking space. 2 cars, easy. 3 doable. Could maybe squeeze in 4. So carpool. Walking distance to groceries, restaurants, dry cleaners, Starbuck's, etc. 5-10 minutes to Alki Beach with every activity available, many restaurants, and the Ferry to Seattle. Easy drive to downtown Seattle and the Docks. Easy 20 minutes to airport. Management answered every E-Mail promptly and rental process was very easy. Deposit was returned quickly along with a pair of earrings I left there. Would recommend for families, weddings, reunions, guy/gal getaway etc. There are two steep stair cases to the upper/lower level and a few stairs up to the porch so you need to be pretty mobile. I know I have left something out but we loved this house and had a most magical week.
