WATERFRONT COTTAGE ON QUIET BEACH, WEST SEATTLE

Vashon Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3-4)

Beach Cottage Seattle is just footsteps from the beach, 9 miles from downtown, 9 miles from SeaTac airport, and a delightful getaway. Constructed in the 1970s, the cottage has been lovingly updated by its newest owners. The cottage’s westward view of Puget Sound faces Vashon Island and beautiful Seattle sunsets. Seabirds, occasional seals and eagles can be seen. When the tide is out, long walks are in.

Sit on the deck and watch the day light up and the sun set.

Listen to the birds call and the waves roll against the shore.

Relax in the cozy reading nook and gaze at the water between chapters.

Look around at the custom wood ceilings, cast glass light fixtures, paintings, and other thoughtful details.

The kitchen is well-equipped with utensils, dishes, pots & pans, a coffee maker, toaster, and microwave. You will have WiFi, basic cable, DVD, iPod dock, and a local use, land-line phone. The bedroom has a comfy queen size bed, good closet space and a dresser. There is a full bathroom, and the reading nook in the living room has outlets to accommodate laptop or iPad use. There is a single convertible couch/bed in the living room. Outdoor parking is located directly in front of the cottage, though a woodland trail or short hike up the road leads back up to public transportation if you want to leave your car behind.

Beach Cottage is located in a quiet beachfront community in West Seattle. Nearby (app. 2 miles) Westwood Village has a large grocery store, drugstore, Target, Barnes & Noble, and other shops and restaurants. You are just a few miles away from The Junction, West Seattle's shopping district, and Seattle’s renowned Lincoln Park, with beautiful waterfront and woodland trails, an outdoor saltwater swimming pool (open Memorial Day to Labor Day), and the Fauntleroy Ferry dock with service to Vashon Island and Southworth.

The owners are each only a short distance away, so within easy reach for any questions or needs.

Beach Cottage was discovered while walking in the neighborhood. It has been lovingly fixed it up for personal use and to share with others. As there are so few 'motel' rooms in West Seattle, it serves those looking for a place to stay in the area.

Cozy cottage, friendly neighborhood

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed an extended stay at the beach cottage (6 weeks) while we had some work to do in Seattle, and found it to be the perfect abode for our needs. While small, it's fully equipped so all our needs were met. The serene view was heavenly and when the tide was out we could walk on the beach for a long distance. We enjoyed watching the ospreys dive for fish and the eagle swooping by. We didn't swim but many locals got relief from the hot weather by swimming, as did their dogs. We became friendly with many of the neighbors and enjoyed a glass of wine with them on occasion. And a couple of them blessed us with fresh crab from the crab pots they set out every day, which was lovely.

It's not a place I'd stay if I wanted to walk to anything (stores, events) - definitely need to have a car - but with a car it's ultimately convenient as far as a Seattle area vacation house is concerned. Working with the owner was a dream - she's easy to contact and always responds to inquiries (before and during) very quickly. I'd definitely do business with her again.

Beach House

  • 5 of 5
I really enjoyed my brief stay and plan on staying at the Beach House again. The location is across the street from the water and is very quiet (unexpected bonus) and the neighbors were nice and welcoming. Great NW rocky beach, sunrises and sunsets. The house itself was just right for me and my dog. It's clean, comfy, cozy and has everything you'll need for a great stay. Why spend the money on another generic room in another generic hotel? I highly recommend The Beach House!

comfortable, secluded, with an excellent view

  • 4 of 5
My girlfriend and I reserved the Beach Cottage for a get-away from our hometown (Portland) to celebrate our one year anniversary. We had social plans in Queen Anne, but wanted to be near the water and also be able to bring our pets along. After seeing lots of places on VRBO that were able to sleep 6-8 people, we were happy to find a smaller, more affordable choice that was still big enough for us. Our drive to the events was about 25 minutes, close enough for convenience, but we liked escaping the city afterward.

We enjoyed the windy, downhill drive to the very end of the street where the cottage is located. It felt sort of special and secret, mostly just known to the people who live there.

The cottage is very well represented by the photos and text, it was pretty much exactly what we were expecting. It's comfortable, but not super fancy which was fine for our needs. It feels like a home away from home. There are sweet art projects all over the house that are a nice touch. The neighborhood is quite lovely -- we enjoyed walking the pups and checking out the different houses, all lined up against the water. The neighbors were all very friendly, waving at us and saying hello.

It has a fantastically beautiful and peaceful view. You can walk right across the street to a little private park/beach. This was great for taking the dogs out to do their thing and taking a deep relaxing breath too. It looked like you could get in a kayak right there and explore the sound... maybe next time!

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed three nights while we visited The Seattle area. Highly recommend it for those wanting a relaxing time with great view and accomodations. I recommend taking a stroll on the beach at low tide and using the water taxi to get to downtown Seattle, Pike Street Market and monorail to the Space Needle. It was a great stay!
