Everything was great! We loved the location. The neighborhood was nice. Great food in the area, close to the beach.
Great property. Great owner. Exactly as advertised. Has all we needed plus some little extras. Would recommend
I could spend all day just gazing out the window of this quiet and very private studio with a million dollar view of Elliot Bay. Rain or shine, it's magical. There are numerous restaurants and coffee shops within walking distance. Free street parking is just around the corner, and there is easy access to public transportation. Owner Marion provided excellent directions and personal recommendations of her favorite local places to eat. She texted to make sure that I had arrived safely and once again to make sure that all was well, but was never intrusive, just friendly and welcoming. I had a wonderful visit and highly recommend her vacation rental.
Efficiency apartment was clean, comfortable, and very well maintained. Hostess had a great guidebook to help navigate the area and personally dropped by to make certain we were happy. There are restaurants within easy walking distance down the hill from the apartment, but the more interesting dining is up the hill and away from the beach. Dukes on the beach was excellent with a great happy hour and good food, but Circa “up the hill” was a wonderful local place with equally good food. The Admiral Bird was good for breakfast (again, up the hill) albeit pretty eclectic.
Definitely would stay here again. The view was fantastic, Marion is a gracious hostess and after you’ve seen the tourist spots in Seattle, West Seattle is a place to explore.
Beautifully decorated, modern, ultra-clean condo in the heart of Alki Beach. It was our first time visiting the Pacific Northwest and our stay in Alki Beach was our first stop. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. This studio is in the heart of everything! Although we were on a tight schedule and did not have the opportunity to meet Marian in person, she was so helpful, offering great recommendations and providing beautiful accommodations.
Plus the views from your private patio are a must-see!
Marian is a great host who prepares a cozy space with a few extras. She stays out of your way while you're there to let you enjoy your privacy, but is available by mobile phone for any questions or issues.
I highly recommend lunch at the funky eatery by the water taxi, and then taking the taxi into Seattle for a day trip.
