Arbor Heights Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3)

Beach Cottage Seattle is just footsteps from the beach, 9 miles from downtown, 9 miles from SeaTac airport, and a delightful getaway. Constructed in the 1970s, the cottage has been lovingly updated by its newest owners. The cottage’s westward view of Puget Sound faces Vashon Island and beautiful Seattle sunsets. Seabirds, occasional seals and eagles can be seen. When the tide is out, long walks are in.

Sit on the deck and watch the day light up and the sun set.

Listen to the birds call and the waves roll against the shore.

Relax in the cozy reading nook and gaze at the water between chapters.

Look around at the custom wood ceilings, cast glass light fixtures, paintings, and other thoughtful details.

The kitchen is well-equipped with utensils, dishes, pots & pans, a coffee maker, toaster, and microwave. You will have WiFi, basic cable, DVD, iPod dock, and a local use, land-line phone. The bedroom has a comfy queen size bed, good closet space and a dresser. There is a full bathroom, and the reading nook in the living room has outlets to accommodate laptop or iPad use. There is a single convertible couch/bed in the living room. Outdoor parking is located directly in front of the cottage, though a woodland trail or short hike up the road leads back up to public transportation if you want to leave your car behind.

Beach Cottage is located in a quiet beachfront community in West Seattle. Nearby (app. 2 miles) Westwood Village has a large grocery store, drugstore, Target, Barnes & Noble, and other shops and restaurants. You are just a few miles away from The Junction, West Seattle's shopping district, and Seattle’s renowned Lincoln Park, with beautiful waterfront and woodland trails, an outdoor saltwater swimming pool (open Memorial Day to Labor Day), and the Fauntleroy Ferry dock with service to Vashon Island and Southworth.

The owners are each only a short distance away, so within easy reach for any questions or needs.

Why The Owner chose West Seattle

Beach Cottage was discovered while walking in the neighborhood. It has been lovingly fixed it up for personal use and to share with others. As there are so few 'motel' rooms in West Seattle, it serves those looking for a place to stay in the area.

Everything We Wanted!!!

  • 5 of 5

We are tourists but we like peace and quiet. We found the change of pace in Seattle and found the rest and relaxation at the Beach Cottage. We will definitely return if we are in the area. The cottage is comfortable for two and it is very well equipped. Our hostess was considerate and informative. A great deal for being right on the water with nature all around.
