Overview

Burien 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.

Keywords: Waterfront , cozy cottage, quiet, romantic get-away, Seattle stay-cation,writer's retreat, pet friendly, kid friendly. Artful decor; 9 miles to downtown, 9 miles to SeaTac airport.

Why The Owner chose Burien

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.

Fantastic little cottage with great view!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic cottage! Directly across the street from a private beach with a great view out of the living room window...it had everything we needed, with lots of towels, bedding, and kitchen supplies. This is the perfect quiet location for those looking to be outside of the city noise. And with vrbos, it's a rare thing to find a place even BETTER than pictures show. Thanks, Mindie!

Perfect Spring Break getaway.

  • 5 of 5

My two daughters and I spent three lovely days at the Beach Cottage, TOO SHORT, would of loved to stay the entire week. Beautiful view, with great art work done by the owners. Can't wait to return when the weather gets a little warmer, but being from Portland we are use to a little rain. The photo are identical to what the cottage looks like so you won't be disappointed, it is a gem for sure! Enjoy, wish I was there :-)

Piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

I also want to say it was my peace of paradise. Incredible sunsets, peaceful meanderings along the beach. Kayaking with the curious seals. Wine on the deck while watching the blue herons. Comfortable, cozy apartment. Friendly, helpful neighbors. Kind, intelligent owner. Two months was not long enough. Not enough room to express my delight with this place. Can't wait to return.

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.
