About Ken and Karen

Ken and I have been married and have lived in the Seattle area for 40 years. We moved to West Seattle to be close to our family, the water, and all the fun that Seattle offers. You will love vacationing here!

Ken and Karen purchased this house in 2004

Why Ken and Karen chose West Seattle

We love West Seattle. We wanted a home within easy walking distance to the sandy beach of Alki, coffee shops, and restaurants. We love the ease of getting to all the sites of Seattle. The water taxi ride to downtown is like taking a cruise around the Sound.

What makes this house unique

There are many wonderful things about our property. Location is probably number one. Our three bedrooms each have their own separate bathrooms. This is great for couples who want to share the property and for large families. With a beach, kids playground and park nearby, and easy access to all amenities it's an ideal rental for vacationers. And everyone loves our rooftop deck with views of the mountains, sound, and passing ferries.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your property is lovely, well-maintained just as promised in the

listing. It worked out perfectly for us. We've visited Seattle many times, but this was the first time with the grand kids. We were greeted with typical Seattle weather, but did have one day of sun affording the kids the opportunity to collect sea glass on Alki Beach. We took the bus into town and were lucky to get a singing bus driver, which made the bus ride fun and memorable. We also enjoyed the great food at conveniently located Metropolitan Market and had Pike's Chowder and couldn't get enough of it. We love Seattle and will be back! Thank you very much.

The best of West Seattle

  • 5 of 5

My sisters and I gathered here for our annual get-away and we loved it! This is probably the cleanest vrbo we have ever stayed in, plus it was tastefully decorated and had all the comforts of home. The location can't be beat--right around the corner from several great restaurants ( we loved Duke's) and Alki Beach. The free shuttle and other bus stops were close by so transportation was readily available. We loved our stay at Alki and would definitely recommend this property!

Alki Oasis

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time with VRBO and we weren't exactly sure what to expect. Ken and Karen provided a beautiful oasis for our Seattle family vacation. We loved being spread out among all the various floors. The house was clean, comfortable, well furnished and provided everything we needed. The parking space was a life saver for busy Alki Beach in the summer. There were thoughtful touches like bus schedules, local recommendations and even a grocery store loyalty card to save us some dough. We really enjoyed the following restaurants - Alki Café, Cactus, and Dukes which were within walking distance. The main drag could be a little boisterous, but with the house a block off, it was quiet and easy to relax in. The owners were easily reachable and encouraged us to contact them with any questions or concerns. They also promptly returned our security deposit only a week after our rental, which we appreciated. All in all, a fantastic rental experience. Highly recommend this property.

Wonderful Home - Exceeded Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Our family visited Seattle over the Labor Day weekend for a family wedding and stayed through the next week for our own exploration of the Emerald City. The Alki Beach home was terrific! Ken and Karen were very helpful prior to our visit, and the house was wonderful. The listing description is very accurate, and the photos do not do it justice - we found it to even be more spacious and inviting than advertised. The layout of the home allowed for comfort and privacy for us and the kids, but the central living area was great for our together time and meals.

The location was absolutely ideal! Only a block from the beach, we were "right there" in Alki, but still away enough from the bustle to not be bothered by street noise and crowds. Whale Tail park across the street was awesome for the kids. Restaurants and coffee shops were just steps away, and we did not get a single bad pizza, Thai, ice cream, or fish and chips, etc. during our stay. The rooftop deck provided beautiful views of the Sound while enjoying dinner and a glass of wine.

We did have a car, but most days didn't use it. The free shuttle to the Ferry dock was a very convenient three blocks away, and the West Seattle Ferry dropped us off on the Waterfront with easy access to many of the Downtown attractions. On those days when we did drive, Downtown Seattle was generally 10-15 minutes away, even during rush hour.

We use VRBO for almost all of our vacation travel and much of our extended business travel. I can say unreservedly that this home is a gem. Ken and Karen were great, the house was better than expected, and the location was amazing! We will return to Seattle again, and when we do, I hope this house is available for our stay.

Happy Family Reunion

  • 4 of 5

Thanks for a pleasant and convenient venue on Alki Beach. We slept six adults comfortably taking advantage of each room's private bath and the common-area living and eating areas. it didn't hurt, neither, that we experienced fantastic weather during our stay. Your home worked well for a family reunion for 4 siblings from 4 parts of the country plus visiting with two sons from the greater Seattle area and grand kids. We appreciate the warmth of your home and several little "extras" that allowed us to maximize our "fun" time. We really enjoyed ourselves and would attest your home definitely was "as advertised" in your profile. Thanks for your personal help, too, in answering our questions before arrival.

Wonderful Rental-Terrific Location

  • 5 of 5

We rented this beautiful home mid May for a family get together for 3 nights mid-week. The home is in like new condition, comfortable living & sleeping quarters, plenty of bathrooms & beautiful views from the rooftop deck. Our out of town guests loved the home & ideal location. Although tis is just a very short block from the heart of Alki beach, it was incredibly quiet, even on Friday night when Alki was busy. Highly recommend this rental. There are a lot of stairs, but we all managed fine with them, including my 80+ year old in-laws (tho they use stairs at their home every day & are in good shape for their age)

Also, the owners were so easy to work with & we received our full deposit back within 3 days (by mail too). Yes, the deposit us a but high, but this is because the home is in perfect condition.

Location and views!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great find. It was clean, in a perfect location and had all the amenities. We could park in the reserved spot (which was critical to have) and walk everywhere. It was wonderful to wake up every morning to coffee on the roof deck and watch the ferries...same goes for the nightcap and the sunsets.

The owners were pleasant and easy to work with and left detailed, helpful information. It is a block off the beach and next to a park so if you have little ones...even better. Bring your racquets too if you love tennis. There is something for everyone in Alki.

The only drawback was the noise from both the park and the cars cruising the strip at night. It is a beach town! I might be a bit of a super safety Mom but I did wish for an alarm and a locking deadbolt upon leaving. That said, we didn't have any problems and I would stay here again. This is a wonderful rental!
