Overview

Overview

West Seattle Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Studio One-Bedroom, full kitchen, 12 miles from downtown, 11 miles from airport

The Beach Drive Carriage House is a great spot for touring Seattle and taking in a sport event at the stadiums without dealing with the noise and parking hassles of the city. There is a water taxi 5 miles from the carriage house that drops you off in the Pioneer Square area.

The Carriage House has private parking with a lovely garden path down to the private entrance. (Five steps down and three up into the carriage house). It accommodates two guests comfortably, with a sofa bed pullout for a third. ($30 to make up the sofa bed for each stay)

The carriage house is water view, and the Water/Beach access is .2 mile walk to Lowman Beach. This park has a tennis court and stone bath to a public beach with lots of logs for climbing or sitting. There is a lovely sandy beach another .2 miles south of Lowman called Lincoln Park. We have two bikes that make it even easier to get there. There is also an Olympic size outdoor pool open all summer in the afternoons. For little ones there are summer wading pools and two large play grounds.

Inside the cottage, there is lots of space for reading, relaxing, or watching television. There is a gas fireplace, jacuzzi tub, and washer-dryer.

There is a brand new full kitchen with granite counters, glass tile backsplash, and a gas range great for making simple or complicated meals. There is a full-size fridge/freezer, coffee maker, toaster, utensils, plates and most things you would need to feel like you are cooking at home.

From the cathedral ceiling living area, there is a view of Puget Sound, and from the kitchen window there is a view of the north half of the Olympic Range. The sunsets are just spectacular.

Located just north of the 135 acre Lincoln Park, the Beach Drive Carriage House is ideal for walking, biking, running, beach combing, and even whale watching. The surroundings are quiet and peaceful.

For small or older dogs, it is an ideal location. There is a gated porch where dogs can relax and it is only .2 miles to a waterfront park with great walking for leashed dogs. $50 extra per dog per stay.

There is a huge vegetable garden and chicken coup near the parking area. Children might enjoy having a peak at the chickens or eggs. There is a great farmer's market every Sunday in the West Seattle junction with flowers, jams, fish, produce, meats, and jars of many other local things.

Please check the online calendar and then send a quote request. You can also call or

e-mail Kyle for availability.

Lovely little home!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed for 5 nights for a break away from our 3 children, we wanted somewhere peaceful to use as our base and this was perfect! I don't tend to submit reviews but this well deserves it. The setting is really pretty & quiet, the decor, cleanliness & comfort excellent. I would compare this to at least a 4 star rating in the UK. We had a car and travelled each day to hike around various different sites, would recommend taking the ferry across to Downtown if visiting there. Thank you for exceeding our expectations!!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you had a nice trip even with a windstorm that knocked out the power for a few hours. Please come back anytime since there are so many wonderful places to see around Seattle.

Magical spot

  • 5 of 5
A quaint, cozy, ideally situated loft studio in West Seattle, on the Puget Sound. Take a lovely walk by the water each morning to Lincoln Park, or drive up to West Seattle Junction for some coffee and crepes at Firefly. Or make your own meals and sight-see for the day in Seattle or just outside for some hiking. This spot is ideal for 55+ too as long as you have no trouble walking -- the stone stairs could be tricky for some in the dark, but no problem if you're healthy! Totally private. I recommend arriving in daylight if you can. I did not and it was fine -- just difficult to find the driveway in the dark.

Owner's Response: So happy you had a nice visit to Seattle. We are installing a steel hand rail for the stairs that will make them safer in the dark and wet.
If you come again, try riding the two bikes we have for touring West Seattle. There a few wine shops that do tastings on Thursday and Friday nights as well up in the Junction.

Excellent experience!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at this property for 3 nights during a trip to the Seahawks season opener. The property is beautiful with flowers everywhere and an awesome water view. Our favorite feature was the jacuzzi tub, which we used every night! The bed was very comfortable, the kitchen was fully stocked and updated and the washer and dryer were a very welcome bonus.

Owner's Response: We love having people for the Mariners, Seahawks and Sounders games. The water taxi is a great option for getting to the games and downtown. Glad that worked well for you.

A charming retreat

  • 5 of 5
A charming and relaxing retreat - georgeous location on Puget Sound. Close to Seattle via water taxi or car, yet far enough out of the city to enjoy nature, hiking, and sunsets on the Sound!

Wonderful!!!

  • 5 of 5
The decor was beautiful, exactly like the pictures. Kyle was very sweet and helpful; I felt like I was visiting family. My daughter really enjoyed visiting with the chickens and the cat. Very close to Downtown Seattle. I wish we had more time there to explore West Seattle, it's an awesome location. I would definitely recommend this property.

Perfect Location! Beautiful Apartment!

  • 5 of 5
We ended our 10 day adventure here. It was a very short distance to Seattle and the airport. Beautiful parks surround this area. Great for beach combing, a great walk, or just listening to the waves. The apartment was spotless and very comfortable. It was wonderful to hear the ocean waves crashing as we laid in bed at night. I would suggest calling ahead to get guided directions to find the driveway. It can be a bit tricky. It was offered, but we thought our GPS would be fine. We should have taken the generous offer. Would stay here again and again.
