GREAT BEACH LOCATION, NEWER TOWNHOUSE, CLOSE TO DOWNTOWN SEATTLE

Seattle Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Townhome, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 6-8, 6 adults max)

Welcome to your beautiful Seattle get away by the beach, Alki Shores Townhouse! This three bedroom, 2 1/2 bath newer townhome is just a block from Alki Beach in West Seattle, and just 6 miles from downtown. The whole house is decorated exquisitely with plenty of space at 1570 square feet.

MAIN LEVEL:

Up the stairs from the ground level entry brings you to a fantastic great room and kitchen with gleaming hardwood floors. There are comfortable leather couches and a 47 inch flat screen TV to take in a game or your favorite shows after a long day of sightseeing in Seattle or playing at the beach down the street. The elegant gas fireplace turns on easily with a switch and adds wonderful ambiance.

KITCHEN:

Also on the main level just off the living area are the dining areas (seating for 8) and the gorgeous kitchen. The shaker style maple cabinets are complemented by the stunning slab granite countertops and stainless appliances. The kitchen is fully equipped for all your cooking needs and the chef will enjoy the gas stove. This is all open to the living area for easy conversation and fun memories during your Seattle stay.

UPSTAIRS (3rd FLOOR):

Two master suites for optimal privacy! The top floor has a spacious master bedroom with a king bed, beautiful bedding, and an attached full bath. walk-in closet. This room also includes a TV and walk-in closet (a great place to put the pack n play crib!). The second bedroom features a queen bed with lovely bedding, and another attached private bathroom with shower.

GROUND FLOOR:

Enter either from the attached garage or through the front door into the quaint foyer that will welcome you to your home away from home. On this level is a powder room (sink and toilet) and a small third bedroom with enough room for twin bunk beds. While this room is small, it's the perfect spot for the kids to call their own, including their own bathroom just outside their door. And don't forget your own full laundry room just through the garage.

OUTSIDE THE TOWNHOUSE:

Just outside, is a fully fenced private patio space on the ground level including a BBQ and dining area for enjoying a cookout! There is a garage space attached to the house. It is fairly small, but can fit a compact car 15 ft or shorter. In addition, you have an off-street reserved parking spot! Also, street parking is easy to come by (could be more difficult during summer months since we are so close to the popular Alki Beach).

THE ALKI AREA:

Of course, the main attraction in West Seattle is Alki Beach, just a three minute walk from your vacation rental. It stretches 2 1/2 miles and is one of the few destination beaches on Puget Sound. In summer, the beach is populated by beach volleyball players, sun worshipers, and beachcombers. Unlike most rocky Puget Sound beaches, at Alki, you can feel the sand between your toes! Stroll along the pedestrian walkway for people watching or exercise, or even rent a bike. Walk about a half mile to the 100 year old Alki Point Lighthouse, one of eight lighthouses on Puget Sound open to the public (limited hours). Just a block from the townhouse, visit the landmark Spud Fish & Chips, open since 1935, for some local fresh fish and a bit (or bite) of Seattle history. Of course, there are many great restaurants along the beach walk as well. Return to your air conditioned townhouse for a rest before coming back in the evening for a beach fire at one of the many existing fire pits on the sand - now that is what vacation memories are made of!

TO DOWNTOWN:

It is an easy drive of about 6 miles or 10 to 15 min right to downtown Seattle. Or, simply take the affordable water taxi to downtown from Alki's Seacrest Park (a mile from the townhouse). There are free Metro DART shuttles to bring you from the townhouse to the terminal at Seacrest Park. The quick and scenic 10 minute ride will bring you right to the waterfront across Elliott Bay, landing at Pier 50.

Once downtown, the possibilities are endless! Go to Pike Place Market, the Space Needle, Seattle Art Museum, Seattle Aquarium, waterfront shops and Ferris wheel, Pioneer Square, Westlake Center or Pacific Place for shopping, Washington State Convention Center, Washington State Ferries, trendy restaurants and coffee shops including the original Starbucks, or catch a Seahawks football, Mariners baseball or Sounders soccer game.

You will love staying in West Seattle near Alki Beach, living like a Seattleite, experiencing the city at its best. Close enough to enjoy all the main tourist attractions, yet just far enough away for peaceful, true vacation time. And a BEACH! Yes, you'll have it all at Alki Shores Townhouse.

OUR STAY AT ALKI SHORES

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at your property. Our grand-children loveed going to the beach. We also enjoyed some of the local restaurants. This location worked really well for us. Our girls loved the bunk bed room. They are 7 and 9 and we even set up the porta-crib for their dolls.

Our only issue was that your cleaning people had not replenished some of the supplies that appeared that they should have been there.

There were 2 dishwasher soaps (some more were delivered when we notified you)
There were 2 coffee filters (we bought a 100 pack and used 2, so you are all set)
There was no laundry detergent to wash the sheets (we had brought some along so used
our own)
Our kids are a little fussy about stinky towels and I will admit that when the towels were wet, that they did not smell good. We would recommend white towels so they can be bleached.

Thanks again for a great stay!

Owner's Response: We are so glad another guest had a great time! I am not sure why some supplies were not there (unless they just didn't look in the right place). As soon as they mentioned only 2 dishwasher packs, we brought more within hours, but they did not mention anything else. Our housekeeping staff usually does a great job replenishing supplies in all our Seattle units they clean (over a dozen). We'll have our housekeeping staff check the towels now that we have heard this, of course. Please let us know if you have any questions at all!

GRADUATION 2014- GREAT PLACE

  • 5 of 5
Where to start...this place is PERFECT!! We are so happy that we chose this Alki Beach townhome. Our family and friends were all so impressed by the size of the place as well as all the amenities. The owners and property manager really have thought of everything! Nothing was a miss.

The location is ideal. So close to the beach, my mother walked to the beach every morning. We enjoyed the central location to stores, restaurants and downtown Seattle,

I would HIGHLY recommend this property to anyone considering. It was very clean, updated, fully stocked and family friendly.

We will definitely return.

Thank you to Debra the property manager. She was in perfect communication with us before, during and following our stay. ;-)

GREAT TOWNHOUSE RENTAL PROPERTY

  • 5 of 5
Our family had a great trip to Seattle and a huge part of that was the awesome accommodations provided by our rented townhouse. Great space, almost everything needed is stocked and ready for use, and the beach and sweet little city of Alki is just a block away!
The TV in the spare room didn't work and the kitchen needed a can opener, but those are really my only critics because everything was so lovely. I would rent from this property company again anytime. Thank you for all of your hospitality before and during our stay!

Owner's Response: So glad another guest had a great time. The instant we saw this review, we brought over a can opener and adjusted the TV (sometimes it's just on the wrong input or channel). So everything is perfect again!

GREAT LOCATION IN WEST SEATTLE!

  • 5 of 5
My friends and I stayed for a long weekend. We enjoyed being able to walk to Alki Beach and its restaurants and coffee shops. Townhouse was well furnished. Much more comfortable than a hotel! Bunk room is very tight. Might be better for kids.
