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.

An incredibly wonderful visit

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five journeyed to the Pacific North West to celebrate my 70th birthday. We also traveled to Victoria, BC and stayed in a HomeAway residence there. Even though my son lives in Seattle, we wanted someplace where the five of us could spend time together yet have some privacy and down time as well…this house was more than we expected it to be! I can't say enough good things about the accommodations, the location, and the amenities. The house was extremely clean and well organized…we found any needed supplies…such as paper goods very easily, the directions as to how to get to and into the house were clearly written and the notebook of information was very helpful. The house is a very short walk to the beach and an area of restaurants and drinking establishments. Fortunately, while we were there, the weather was superb and we so enjoyed sitting and dining on the rooftop patio. My son's fiancee rode her bike all around the area and scouted out places for us to visit; my daughter's love spend every morning running along the beachfront and stopping off at the coffee shop and bakery…those of us who lounged at the house loved that he brought us coffee and sweets, and we spend several of the evenings after dinner strolling the beach front. I would recommend this house to anyone who is looking for a place to spend a relaxing few days in the Seattle area. The communication with Ken and Karen was great…I'm sorry I didn't get to meet them to tell them in person what a wonderful experience we had. Thanks to them for having this abode for guests…if the opportunity arises, I will definitely book another stay at the Alki beach house!

Great property and location

  • 5 of 5

We were extremely happy about our stay here! The property is in a great location. We enjoyed spending time at Alki beach, walking to local restaurants, and enjoying the beautiful views from the deck. Driving into Seattle was super quick, but we also used the water taxi. We loved this place, and would highly recommend it.
