This place is at a wonderful location on Seattle's Alki beach. So close to great shops, restaurants, bars and of course the long boardwalk strip. I was mostly only there to sleep and get ready, which was good since there wasn't much privacy outside of the room; either Patricia or her son seemed to always be on the couch right by the front door. Made coming and going awkward after a while. The deck pictured is not the deck attached to the room, which wasn't weather ready anyway. I think I had a different assumption of what my stay would be like due to the info given to me and prior experiences. Regardless, Patricia was very gracious and friendly and the room was welcoming.
First of all, Patricia is the most warm, welcoming person you will meet. She is personable and easy to talk to. The bed was a full or queen size, I'm not entirely sure, but it had a comfortable foam topper. It was more than big enough for me, and I think it would be fine for two average sized people. The room had an electric baseboard heater, so you could control the temperature from within the room. There is also a desk, which is perfect for students. The apartment is steps from Alki Beach, and there are plenty of bus routes and water taxis to get you to where you need to go. King County has a trip planner for public transit that is really helpful. I mention this because parking at the beach could be an issue in the peak season, but parking in Seattle sucks in general. I took the public transit for a week, mostly going to the University District, and found it to be really convenient. The area is so incredibly safe. I would take walks or jog throughout all of West Seattle, and I did not have any issues. You simply aren't going to find a better place to stay for the price. She even stocked the bathroom with really good shampoo and conditioner! I would definitely go back to Patricia's place in a heartbeat. The views from the beach were simply breathtaking.
Awesome place and great location. Just a 2 minute walk to the main road/beach. Plenty of restaurants right on Alki Trail, and several within walking distance. Had the entire place for four of us - and that was perfect. Living room area and balcony area were nice and large and provided good places for the group to sit, drink and talk.
We did not really cook any while we were there - either had cheese/meats/chips/dessert or went out.
Short commute to downtown Seattle - probably 15 minutes most days. This made it nice to go visit. We never took the shuttle from Alki.
Patrica met us upon arriving and gave us a nice introduction to the place and Alki with recommendations.
Patricia was so easy to work with; she is very responsive and that was especially helpful in our last minute booking for a long weekend for a business trip for my team.
The place was exactly as described. It's very clean and in order. The two bathrooms are modern and well maintained. The kitchen was a great place to gather for our workgroup.
The highlight is the upstairs deck with sweeping views of Alki and Puget Sound. To watch the sun go down has to be one of life's most memorable moments.
Patricia's an excellent host and her place is exactly as described. My trip was work related but I really enjoyed my stay. The apartment had all I needed, and there were plenty of eating options nearby without having to hop on a car. I used the water taxi every day I went to work to downtown Seattle, which was extremely convenient. The atmosphere at Alki beach is very relaxed, the sunsets and the view of the city at night were stunning. Patricia provided me plenty of ideas for the days I was going to have off during my stay and kept in touch to make sure everything was all right. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her place to others.
Patricia was a great host. Answering all our questions, preparing everything for us . The house is amazing! 2 minutes from the beach.
It was a wonderfull stay!
The whole experience was wonderful. Patricia was a great host, stopping by to say hi and give us ideas on what to see and do. The home was very comfortable for the 4 of us. We did not get to spend much time on Alki beach due to such a busy schedule and we are sad about that. The location of the home is wonderful, right off the beach and very close to shopping and food.
The reservation was canceled 29 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Had a great time and perfect weather. The place was awesome. Great location and was perfect for what we needed.
Seattle in August + this view = amazing!
Patricia was a fantastic house guest and I would welcome her again anytime and you should too.
