Fabulous view in West Seattle

House - Private room · 46th Ave, Seattle, WA 98136, United States

The Space

. My home has a fabulous Puget Sound view and is within walking distance of the outstanding, waterfront, Lincoln Park and the Fauntleroy Ferry (10 min.), as well as several wonderful restaurants and a bakery. By car, downtown Seattle is 15 minutes and by C bus 25 minutes direct. The bus stop is 1-½ blocks from my house and runs every 15 minutes. The airport is just 17 minutes away. There is a bus that runs from the airport to Westwood Village - 5 minutes from my house and I can pick you up there if you don't have a car.

Your roomy ground level suite has it’s own private entrance. The suite includes a private bathroom with extra large shower, bedroom with 2 twin beds, closet space and dresser, sitting room with small sofa, table/desk, open storage unit and a microwave, toaster, coffee maker with included coffee and tea, French Press, auto hot water pot, blender, and small refrigerator. There's a hairdryer in the bathroom. There is also a TV hooked up with Comcast just for you in your room, wifi, and street parking with my permit.
The room does have low ceilings, 6 1/2’, so keep that in mind but no one has had a problem to date. There are also 2 lounge chairs outdoors in my garden area for guests, which has a fabulous water view if you are inclined to spend a morning or afternoon at home relaxing with a good book. The covered entrance has a comfy chair and small table for coffee outside in case of rain preventing the outside lounge chairs.

Nearby Lincoln Park is a wonderful recreational area. Excellent for walking, cycling, or running along the waterfront promenade There is an outstanding outdoor saltwater pool open May 31-Labor Day, tennis courts, and walking trails through the woods.
You can also take the nearby ferry, to Vashon Island and the Olympic Peninsula or take the 1-hour round trip for stunning views and enjoyment.
West Seattle downtown, a 10 min drive, is charming as well and has many restaurants as does the famous Alki Beach area, a 15-minute drive along the waterfront.

One block away from my home is a local favorite restaurant, Endolyne Joe’s, which is open for all meals, as well as the Original Bakery where coffee and baked treats await your morning pleasure. Across the street is a good Mexican Restaurant. There is also a shopping center - Westwood Village a 5 min drive, also on the C bus line where there are restaurants, grocery store and various shops.

I love my neighborhood and it's close proximity to all the things I enjoy... good food, beautiful nature and recreation. I also love traveling, hosting guests and hearing your travel stories.

  • Mardee was an extremely gracious host and her place could not have been more perfect for my weekend stay! Beyond the convenient location, it was very clean and well maintained, and Mardee was kind enough to leave a variety of cereals, fruit, and yogurt for me. I was grateful for the refrigerator, coffee maker, hot water pot, and all that I needed in the way of silverware and glasses! Thanks Mardee!!

  • Mardee's place was perfect for my stay. I was in town on business and was out and about every day. The room comes with a fridge, microwave, coffee and tea makers and some teas, coffees, and other goodies to nourish you. Mardee was nice enough to bring down more filtered water as the week passed. The ceiling is definitely low, but was fine for me. A little TV and easily accessible WiFi were all I needed. She has thoughtfully left out a LOT of touring materials if you are visiting for pleasure. An AMAZING restaurant is only a block and a half away. It looks like just a neighborhood hole in the wall, but is fantastic (Endolyne Joes). Mardee also gave me a parking pass for my rental car so I was all taken care of. Very quiet neighborhood, very close to the ferry, and a short jaunt up to the West Seattle Bridge.

  • We had a great time in Seattle! Mardee's accomodations were comfortable, clean, and conveniently located to public transportation. I would highly recommend this bed and breakfast.

  • This is a lovely little place, very clean and friendly. We love Seattle! Thank you, Mardee.

  • A wonderful location with a wondeful host. Close to everything, but with the feel of being in a small town on the sound.

    On top of the thoughtful snacks (and coffee) that Mardee makes available for in-room comfort, the local diner and Alki Beach restaurants provided all we needed for good food with a great vibe (and view!).

  • There is so much to say about Mardee and her awesome house. I'll start by saying Mardee has the place ready for you to arrive in the event that she isn't there. When we arrived, she was there and greeted us at the door on a very rainy evening. Mardee is very friendly and ready to give any advice you might need about the area.
    The room itself is very clean and has everything you need from internet and cable tv to a refrigerator and coffee/fruit waiting for you. Mardee's attention to detail is remarkable. She has equipped the room with lots of reading material for new visitors to the Seattle area.
    The twin beds (which at first admittedly made me apprehensive) are comfortable and in combination with a quiet house and neighborhood makes for a good night's sleep.
    The view of Puget sound from the balcony is fantastic. Mass transit is within walking distance from the house as well as some restaurants/coffee shops/bakery.
    This is where I will be staying from now on whenever I am in the Seattle area. No doubt about it.
    Thank you Mardee for a very comfortable and fantastic experience!

  • We had a very nice stay with Mardee. The room is cozy and fun with lots of good information about the local area and breakfast snacks and yummy coffee. Great shower. Don't miss a walk in Lincoln Park. Also the restaurants just down the block were great. The twin beds are a little snug for two, but we cuddled! I hope we get the chance to come back.

  • Mardee's downstairs apartment was just the ticket for my recent week-long business event in West Seattle. She was a wonderful host, and she even asked if I wanted bananas when I arrived. Yes!

    The room was clean, I had my own bathroom, and there was a mini-fridge and a hot water pot.

    Oh, and the view from the front yard was a heavenly sight to behold as I departed early each morning.

    I was a happy camper.

    P.S. If you get a chance, make sure to visit Lincoln Park just minutes away!

  • Thanks to Mardee,

    The place is quiet, clean and comfortable to stay.
    Also, good to feel the beauty of Seattle. Walking distance
    to beautiful beach, easy to access from airport and downtown.

    Most of all, kindness of Mardee will make the visit unforgettable.

  • Would highly recommend to stay at Mardee's when in Seattle! The place itself is very nice: quiet, with beautiful view and you can easily get there from downtown. Mardee was very friendly and hospitable, she helped us to plan our stay, provided maps and gave advice. Thank you Mardee!
