We love Alki Beach, spring, summer, winter and fall!

What makes this house unique

Nothing compares to morning coffee on the beach at low tide. Love the sounds of fog horns and seagulls. Best place to enjoy the uniqueness of Seattle.

Great vacation house!

  • 5 of 5

The Alki House is cute, comfortable, very clean, and has everything you could need. Our only complaint is we didn't have time to stay longer!

Very clean, charming, convenient

  • 5 of 5

The host Janet has thought of everything! We were comfortable and carefree the few days we were there. Our kid loved the beach toys and treated that whole back room as her playroom.

We love this house

  • 5 of 5

We love the Alki House! This is the second time we have stayed in the house and it is the first place we check to see if it's available when we are staying in Seattle. You can walk to multiple coffee shops, restaurants or just stroll down the beach. We love eating at Cactus and Salty's. The house is clean, cozy and charming. Janet is wonderful and makes everything easy to have a great stay.

Great Little House

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect rental for my Mother-in-Law who was visiting from N.D. We live a few blocks away, and she couldn't stay at our place because our house is being remodeled. So this house was just what we needed! It was great for just her (there is one double bed), but I think the sectional sofa is a sleeper too. It is adorable inside and out and has a cute yard and barbecue that I'm sure gets used a lot in the summertime. We just hung out and watched movies on the big screen tv (cable shows and a pay-per-view movie), talked, and walked to close-by restaurants to eat. I was happy that the shower was a walk-in that was easy for my MIL to use. She said the bed was very comfortable. It was also very quiet, more so than I had expected as it is so close to the beach, which gets crowded on weekends. There is a no pets policy.
