Sweet & Fun Alki Beach Escape!

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Alki Avenue Southwest, Seattle, WA 98116, United States

The Space

Why stay near the beach when you can stay ON the beach?

Welcome to our Alki retreat! It's the perfect alternative to a Downtown hotel! Like to travel like a local - this is the place for you!

This super cute 1BR apartment in a turn-of-the-century building used to be summer vacation homes for Seattle residents back in the day. Although they're modernized, there's still lots of fun quirks and accents that make it a fun old-timey beach home! I hope you will love your stay as much as we love it here!

There is a fully stocked kitchen and full shower/tub, in addition to a good-sized balcony. But you'll probably spend most of your time in the living room, which features large picture windows overlooking the Sound. Pour a glass of wine or grab a cup of coffee and keep an eye out for seals and the occasional orca! The sunsets are spectacular from the beach or the couch!

We are directly across the street from beach access, where you can go tidepooling, beachwalking, or take a five-minute walk to explore the cute Alki downtown area which is full of restaurants, bars, and shopping.

Everything you need is provided - a freshly made bed and clean linens, and lots of coffee, tea, and whatever other treats I've stocked! Feel free to use anything in the kitchen you might need - our casa is su casa!

The bed is a queen-sized pillowtop mattress - very cozy. I'm a lover of clean linens and quiet, cozy sleeping spaces, and that's exactly what you'll get here! Sweet dreams!

Getting Around
There are several buses that service Alki, and the nearest stop is just one block away in either direction. There's also a water taxi or plain ole taxi service if you'd like to get out a bit farther. You have one reserved parking spot in front of our building, and street parking is plentiful on all but the busiest of days (typically weekends). But honestly, once you arrive you'll probably want to rent a bike, surrey, paddle board, or kayak to get around! Rental spots are just a few blocks away on the main beach.

Welcome to Alki! If there's anything we can do to make your stay more enjoyable, just let us know!

  • Greattt place. It looks exactly like the photos! We loved it. Only wish we came to visit in the summer, so we could see Seattle at its best... Especially being literally 10 steps away from the water. Apartment seems a little more lived in than we expected. It's filled with clothes and other supplies. Bathroom is small. However, it is wonderfully decorated! Great books! We didn't get to meet Judy, but she is very accommodating and very responsive! :)

  • What a perfect, lovely place to stay! Judy is the most excellent host and we had a wonderful time checking out Alki Beach. The water taxi is very convenient. The apartment has everything you could want and we definitely would love to come back sometime. Highly Recommended!

  • Loved this rental. LOVED it! The space is very clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. The couch was super cozy and the bed was great too. Judy made the best use of the space possible and it felt like we were instantly at home. The neighbors were quiet and the internet was speedy! We had everything we needed for our work-cation. One thing we were not prepared for was the incredible view and how close we were to the water! It was a phenomenal surprise. We loved watching boats and ferries go by day in and day out. The location was also great for walking to the beach, coffee and a good meal. Everything was about a 10 minute walk away. Judy herself was great to connect with. Although we never met her in person, she was accessible and responsive. She even checked back in with us on a question to see if we had all our needs met. It was very kind of her. We loved it all! Our only complaint is that we don't own this space. We wished we could go back anytime. Rent it, you'll love your stay!

  • Our stay at Judy's Alki Beach apartment was amazing!! We were within walking distance to a bunch of great bars and restaurants and the view was spectacular!! The King County Water Taxi was a short bus ride from her place and was only about a ten minute ride to downtown Seattle. Supe convenient and cheap!

    I couldn't have asked for a better place for my first visit to Seattle. I would recommend both Judy's place and Alki Beach to anyone visiting the area.

  • Wow! We had a wonderful time at our Alki Beachfront escape. The location was amazing with a breathtaking view. Judy was the best host ever! She was warm, friendly and very generous. All of her neighbors were very fun and helpful, too!

    When we arrived everything was neat and clean, and the apartment was very nicely decorated, and Judy left a note with little tips and pertinent info for us. Really, we can't say enough about how awesome the communication was from our host. She was ON it!

    There was so much to see and do. Right across the street from the beach, walking distance to all the restaurants on Alki, walking distance to the Water Taxi to Downtown Seattle, and Judy even made her personal sports equipment available to us, a volleyball and badminton equipment. Even with all that, we found ourselves hanging out on the front balcony with the neighbors and some cocktails.

    I wish we stayed longer but we'll definitely be back! This was everything described in Judy's profile and more. Our hostess with the most-est set the bar very high for future AirBNB experiences!

  • What a great little apartment on Alki Beach! Walk to restaurants and the view of the sunset can't be beat. The place is as it is described: no frills... sufficient. I had a fine time and a good night's sleep. This part of Seattle was new to me and I much enjoyed the people and slower pace.
