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.

THERE IS HIGH-SPEED WIFI.

(rates are $115 night/$690 week low season - $125 night/$750 week High season)

(Cleaning and taxes included for up to a week)

(Dogs $50 per dog per stay)

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.

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. We have a 2 night stay minimum stay in the low season and 3 night minimum stay in high season.

As soon as you are fully paid, we will send a code and the address.

Beautiful Place on the Water

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is one of the most beautiful, nicest places I have stayed. The best part is that it is surrounded by nature. When I was there, all the trees around were flowering and the moss on the stone pathways, the terraced gardens and houses, and the beach reminded me of Japan. If you're luck and it's sunny, you can look out over the water to snow-capped mountains in the distance. It's nice to sit on the beach watching the ships go by and the seagulls in the water. The gas fireplace is a very nice, cozy touch. The kitchen with the gas stove, a full sized fridge, and granite countertops is great. Kyle and Michael keep it stocked with basic things like salt, sugar, teas, and oil. The queen bed is also very comfortable and there is a washer and dryer right there in the unit. It's a wonderful, quiet place to relax in nature just minutes away from a fast-moving, tightly-packed city. I can't recommend Kyle and Michael's cottage enough!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay in West Seattle. Please come back in late spring to fall to enjoy mountain biking through Lincoln Park or down to Alki Beach. You can even take the bikes onto the Seattle Water Taxi to visit downtown. Kyle and Michael

Austin Visitor

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is spacious and very well laid out. The kitchen is well equipped. There are views of the sound - a nice small view from the kitchen and a very nice view from the living room, looking toward Lincoln park. It was difficult finding the drive late at night in the dark. GPS on Google maps helped a lot. The house number is not shown on the street. The driveway has a mailbox to the left for the 12 served residences and just past that down the drive is a house marker 6565. The cottage is just a little farther.

Owner's Response: We are happy to give you specific directions if you are arriving after dark as the cottage is hard to find. (But that is what we like about it...) Kyle

Cozy West Seattle Cottage

  • 5 of 5

While looking for a romantic getaway, we stumbled upon this cottage. It was perfect! Cozy, clean, with a gorgeous view and all of the amenities you could need. It being a short walk to Lincoln park and pet-friendly, the cottage was a perfect destination for our small dog. Set in a quiet neighborhood, surrounded by the water, it was the perfect Valentine's weekend getaway.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed our serene little part of West Seattle, and glad you felt cozy during February here. Please come back in the summer when you can bike down to the Alki area and enjoy the shops and restaurants down there too. Kyle and Michael

Perfect West Seattle location

  • 5 of 5

The unit was exceptionally clean and very well located for enjoying the Sound and getting around West Seattle. The owners were very flexible with our last night arrival and seemed more than helpful although the apartment so well stocked we didn't have to contact them. We hope to stay here again next time we come to visit family.

Water View Cottage

  • 5 of 5

I don't normally write reviews, but this was fantastic experience. I was concerned at first about the stone stairs and path since I had to wear a large boot for a stress fracture, but I had no problem navigating the stairs or pathway. We are both over 65 years old. The cleanliness and views were excellent. After spending all day looking for property in West Seattle it was nice to go to a quiet and cozy spot at the end of the day. Thank you again.

Owner's Response: So glad you had a nice trip to West Seattle. Just after you left they aired the an Animal Planet show called Tree House Masters that was filmed this summer across the street from our driveway. It might be fun to watch it and see the views and the area again. Thanks so much for the review. Kyle and Michael

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. Kyle and Michael
