About the property

Townhome, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths (Sleeps 7)

** Beginning Oct 1 - we are adding a monthly rental option at $3000/per mo.

Whether renting for a romantic getaway or just spending time with family and friends, this lovely home, just a few blocks from Alki Beach, is the perfect vacation home for you.

Alki Beach is a hot spot with joggers, rollerbladers, cyclists, volleyball players and sun bathers. It is home to restaurants ranging from hamburger joints to upscale gourmet. Whether you want to catch some rays or watch a winter storm roll in, Alki Beach is a great place to view Seattle from a different perspective.

This waterfront home has many great features including gorgeous granite kitchen counter tops, cherry hardwood floors, stainless steel appliances, a washer and dryer, gas fireplace, three bedrooms (with their own bathrooms), 2 balconies, one patio and a fenced yard furniture for lounging around on sunny days and a grill.

Complimentary high speed Internet is provided - just bring your laptop to stay connected. Two flat screen HD Televisions’ with Direct TV although you will hardly need it with such beautiful views of the Puget Sound on every floor.

This three story house will give you the comfort of being at home, while being miles away. This property is located on the quiet side of Alki (Beach Drive) but is just a few blocks from the heart of Alki Beach. The property is also a short, complimentary shuttle away from the water taxi - a 12 minute boat ride to downtown Seattle.

While you are here make sure you walk across the street to the quaint little waterfront park called Cormorant Cove. It is great for anything from walking your beloved dog to a private stroll between lovers.

About Jim Waldon

We have lived in Seattle for almost twenty years. We love it very much and love sharing it.

Jim Waldon purchased this townhome in 2008

Why Jim Waldon chose West Seattle

We had a ball decorating this property in a casual modern beach house decor.

Driftwood, sand, seashells and rubber duckies abound! The main floor (open modern kitchen, dining and living room) has a great view. The living room is comfy, roomy and beachy. Off of the living room is a deck with ample seating and a grill.

The main bedroom is roomy with the best view of the house. It has a bit of a Hawaii feel with wicker chairs and a deck of its own.

The second bedroom is our surfer bedroom. I has California beach signs and a surf board on the ceiling!!

The third bedroom is our Great Northwest room featuring Big Mouth Billy Bass!

We promise you will have a great time being our guest.

What makes this townhome unique

Alki Beach, great restaurants and pubs, water taxi to downtown Seattle, Pike Place Market, beautiful sunsets right outside your window.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family and I have rented here before and were happy nothing had changed. Great location. The condo is large with three bedrooms and four bathrooms. I could tell the owners spent a good deal of time making this a fun vacation home.

We will stay again!!

nice condo with a wonferful view of Puget sound.

  • 5 of 5

The property was very nice. Many bathrooms made it was for everyone to get ready sooner. One thing for the future guests would be to tell them where to out trash. We tried to out it out on trash day for you, but one of the neighbors put it back in the little fence area.

I do wish there was a blow dryer at the house, as well as a couple of cookie type sheets to use. Other than that, which was a very small inconvenience, the house was lovely. The owner was wonderful to respond so quickly and very courteous.

There are many neat restaurants on alki, which was very nice.

Beautiful house

  • 4 of 5

Not enough to do in walking distance. Other than that, the house was clean and well kept and a pleasure to stay in.

Smoke detectors were a touch sensitive and triggered whenever we used the stove.

Great condo in a wonderful location.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived before check-in time, and the owner was gracious enough to let us in the house an hour early. The house was sparkly clean and there were even fresh flowers in a vase to greet us. I felt that the property was nicer than the pictures show, and our family of five was quite comfortable. The location was perfect for day trips to downtown Seattle, the Cascades and the Olympic Peninsula. We also enjoyed walking the Alki Beach area and eating at many different tasty spots. We would happily stay here again!

Nice location, large place but had problems

  • 2 of 5

The owner of this property is very nice however, I don't know who he uses for his cleaning company. I've never arrived at a property that the tv was on, with a broom laying on the steps and the place was dirty. Not dusty but dirty. I spent the entire first day washing sheets, cleaning the bathroom, sweeping the floor with a broom that looked like it was broken. The pillows smelled so bad they had to be washed. I couldn't believe it. I notified the owner because I thought if I paid for cleaning, I'd want to know that someone didn't do it. Cigarette butts line the upstairs gutters, the appliances had to be washed inside and out. The fridge and freezer had food in it. We didn't know if it belonged to the owner or someone else. The worse part was that on the last 2 days, we lost hot water. No one could take a shower, wash their hair. So for a family of 6 this was not a treat.

Owner's Response: I am sorry you had problems Sheryl. As you know you and I communicated a lot both before and during your stay. I even accommodated you when you made an error booking our place. This is our primary home and only rent it out during the summer. We consider all of our renters to be personal guests of ours. Unfortunately sometimes things break. For you our water heater broke on a Saturday evening. I tried to get someone out to fix it but no one was available until Monday morning. It is now fixed and ready for future renters! Regarding cleaning this is the first time we have had a complaint. I have addressed this with our cleaning folk and they assure me this will not happen again. You stated you washed the sheets but that was unnecessary. I was there when the beds were made with clean sheets. Sheryl I worked with you and am disappointed your stay wasn't better. We almost always receive five star reviews with only a four star review scattered in here and there. I don't think your two star rating is fair but I guess there is nothing I can do about that. Good luck in your future travels!
