Our urban cottage is located just blocks from the West Seattle Junction. This two bedroom house sleeps a maximum of 6 guests. Both the master bedroom and a second bedroom have queen-sized beds. A semi-private, curtained sleeping area contains bunk beds perfect for kids or the young at heart. The small kitchen is functional, but not for the true gourmet cook. The house has one bathroom, a combined open living/dining space, a washer/dryer, wireless high-speed internet, and off-street parking for two cars.
You'll find the beds crisply made, fresh towels in the bathroom, and a coffee/tea service in the kitchen, in addition to other homey touches, so you can begin your relaxing vacation the minute you arrive.
The cottage is located near the heart of a neighborhood full of great restaurants, coffee shops, shopping, a pharmacy, grocery stores, and nightlife. Our neighbors are Salon Ef-Fekts and the OutWest Bar.
West Seattle is also home to Seattle’s finest waterfront areas: Alki Beach and Lincoln Park. Alki provides summer fun and excellent views of downtown; Lincoln Park is great for a hike in the woods or a dip in the saltwater swimming pool. We recommend riding the Elliot Bay Water Taxi from Seacrest Pier to downtown Seattle. By car, downtown Seattle is just 10 minutes. Or, another great hassle-free option is to hop on a metro bus and ride just 15-20 minutes.
Having both owned houses before we married in February of 2009, we decided to try the vacation rental business rather than sell either. Our first guests were Laura's family, in town for the wedding. Since then, with Joe's work as an entertainer and our joint project of raising our two sons, we are plenty busy! However, we take pride in putting our visitors first and have really enjoyed meeting our guests and sharing the city we love with them.
