About Ken and Karen

Ken and I have been married and have lived in the Seattle area for 40 years. We moved to West Seattle to be close to our family, the water, and all the fun that Seattle offers. You will love vacationing here!

Ken and Karen purchased this house in 2004

Why Ken and Karen chose West Seattle

We love West Seattle. We wanted a home within easy walking distance to the sandy beach of Alki, coffee shops, and restaurants. We love the ease of getting to all the sites of Seattle. The water taxi ride to downtown is like taking a cruise around the Sound.

What makes this house unique

There are many wonderful things about our property. Location is probably number one. Our three bedrooms each have their own separate bathrooms. This is great for couples who want to share the property and for large families. With a beach, kids playground and park nearby, and easy access to all amenities it's an ideal rental for vacationers. And everyone loves our rooftop deck with views of the mountains, sound, and passing ferries.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your property is lovely, well-maintained just as promised in the

listing. It worked out perfectly for us. We've visited Seattle many times, but this was the first time with the grand kids. We were greeted with typical Seattle weather, but did have one day of sun affording the kids the opportunity to collect sea glass on Alki Beach. We took the bus into town and were lucky to get a singing bus driver, which made the bus ride fun and memorable. We also enjoyed the great food at conveniently located Metropolitan Market and had Pike's Chowder and couldn't get enough of it. We love Seattle and will be back! Thank you very much.

Great House for Kids

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful house to spend a week with our kids and grandkids. Layout was great, really appreciated that each bedroom had its own bathroom. Large sturdy kitchen table great for playing board games. Kitchen well stocked , plenty of dishes and glasses. Everything was very clean. Location was great . Karen and Ken very friendly. I wish the weather had been a bit warmer so we could have grilled and dined on the rooftop deck. Did get to enjoy the great view though. Hopefully we'll be back. Thanks

Three couples in town for a vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house was exactly what we wanted. The three bedrooms were great. All have access to their own bathrooms. The balcony was perfect for morning coffee and evening drinks. The kitchen is ideal for meal prep, with a large refrigerator, oven and stove, dish washer and plenty of counter space. Alki Beach is very nice with several good restaurants close by. Also, close proximity to downtown Seattle is very nice. We did a lot of sight seeing and getting around was quite easy. The owners were very easy to work with and fully answered all my questions. I would highly recommend this house.

Great Place to stay in Seattle!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect place to stay when visiting Seattle. The property was exactly as advertised - 3 nice bedrooms was great and the rooftop patio was perfect for morning breakfasts and evening drinks! It didn't bother us but just know that there are plenty of stairs as the property has 4 levels including the patio. I is literally just one block from Alki beach and lots of good restaurants. We travelled into downtown Seattle most of the week and it was very easy by bus, water taxi or driving. I would highly recommend this property.

Great Home in Alki beach

  • 5 of 5

The home was wonderful and had a great location. One block from the beach. There are several excellent restaurants close by. The park across the street has 2 public tennis courts. Wish we had known this or we would have brought our racquets! There is a parking spot which is critical as there is no available street parking. Beautiful view of the bay from the balcony. It was a beautiful spot to enjoy wine and cheese in the evening sun. Fully equipped kitchen for when we cooked in and a very nice gas grill on the balcony. Highly recommend this property.
