Seattle Apartment Rental Photos and Description
A Seattle Times Pacific NW Magazine showcase! 800 s.f. open-concept studio for 3, King-size memory-foam bed, high-end sleeper, Sound and mountain views, Fireplace, Private outdoor areas, 10 mins. to Downtown, Alki Beach, Walk to bus and Morgan Junction.
Welcome to Suite Shagalicious. Live for a time like you’re on the set of Madmen in 800 square feet of authentic, midcentury modern style, all part of a 1958 custom-built home by Swedish-born designer, Martin Ollas. This spacious, open-concept studio apartment is set to sleep you, and up to 2 others, in total comfort and style.
Proud with pedigree, Suite Shagalicious is a jewel within the showcase home praised for its architectural style and interior design chops, appearing in a full-feature layout for Seattle Times’ Pacific NW Magazine.
Punctuated with original art and furnished with a mix of modern and period designer pieces, The Shag is a skillful blend of the iconic past and all the modern upgrades one would expect in a contemporary boutique vacation rental setting. Well-appointed eat-in kitchen, defined living and sleeping areas, full-service laundry room, private bathroom and shower, and a luxurious, wrap-around, wood-burning fireplace all located on one floor, no stairs. The wonderful advantage of this layout is everything centers on the fireplace and the HD Satellite TV to enjoy from both the bed, and the sofa.
Speaking of comfort, we receive many accolades for our king size, memory foam, Bragada bed. Outfitted with 4 pillows; 2 Pacific Coast down (no goose feathers, here) and 2 memory-foam, this bed is one of luxury rarely available even at high-end hotels.
The additional traveler in your party will enjoy the suites’ American Leather Comfort Sleeper, a sofa that opens to a Double bed featuring an exclusive memory foam mattress on a platform foundation. This sleeper is the industry standard, guaranteed to provide a superb nights’ sleep without springs. No fear of losing coin flips, here!
Of particular value is the advantage of private outdoor living space that comes as a bonus with the suite rental. The outdoor areas live like that of a full-sized home thanks to the professional talents of landscape architect, Brooks Kolb and Tallar Landscaping & Construction. A gorgeous, well-lit, private entry and serene, modern water feature greet you at the front door. The water feature placement ensures it can be seen from the kitchen and heard through the open window to wonderful effect. The single-light back door opens to a private, all-season, covered cedar porch for magnificent sunset views over the Puget Sound and snow-capped Olympic peaks. The sea air here is remarkable. And beyond the porch lays a gated courtyard for BBQ’s and other private-use enjoyment. Past the gate is a fire bowl for campfire-style entertainment during summer-season…toasted marshmallows, anyone?
There’s no shortage of free, convenient street parking. The corner bus provides a 10-minute ride to Downtown, leaving every 20 minutes. Alki Beach and Fauntleroy Ferry are both 7-minute rides. Our location is only blocks to the California Junction and Farmer’s Market. With a walk to Morgan Street Junction shopping, drug store, convenience store, library, golf course, parks and church.
My husband and I are deeply proud of what we’ve accomplished making this home everything we knew it could be, and more. And since 2005, our honor and privilege is to share it with you. We have found our enthusiasm to do so is felt by all who visit here, and are humbled by those returning to us year after year. No greater emphasis to this point can be made than what has already been expressed by the nearly 100 on-line reviewers who share this view. Please read their comments and make your reservation with confidence. We hope to see you soon!

Guestbook comments from the manager
We found the Shag-a-licious after much searching for a place to stay in West Seattle while visiting relatives. The rental agency was VERY prompt and responsive and so we booked "The Shag" for our 3 night stay. We were so very pleased with the "home away from home". The place was immaculate and the decor was so much fun - it took us back to our childhood!!!! Understand that this is not a hotel and that cleaning up after ones self is expected, but we did not mind. It was nice to have a hideaway that provided more comfort and space than a hotel room. We will most surely return to the Shag-a-licious on future West Seattle visits.
