Our modest waterfront home hangs over the rocky Puget Sound coastline. Guests enjoy an unbeatable view of the water from their private deck and are lulled to sleep at night by the waves crashing below. Just a two-block walk north of the cottage is beach access at Me-Kwa-Mooks park. It is also just a short drive or long (1.5 mile) walk to the Alki Beach Strip.
The open floor plan in our beach house is arranged to take full advantage of sweeping views from practically every room. The "waterside queen bedroom" is not really a bedroom at all, but an open area at the back of the house adjacent to the deck, kitchen, and part of the living room. The large living/dining room runs the full length of the house with a tv area, dining table, fireplace, and entryway. Near the front entrance is the cottage's true bedroom and one bathroom. The daybed with trundle is located in this front bedroom, and the entrance to the bathroom is through the bedroom. The front yard offers several sitting areas and a charcoal BBQ grill. The back deck is a magical place to sit and watch ferries and passing ships throughout the day. Scout the water for passing whales or other sea life and enjoy beautiful Olympic Mountain sunsets every night.
The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes and cooking utensils. You will find plenty of towels and toiletries in the bathroom, and all beds freshly made. There are several books, board games, and cards for your enjoyment as well as top quality binoculars for our guests to use to scope out all the different sites.
Accès des voyageurs
Please note that there is a mother-in-law apartment downstairs. Both units have their own separate entrances and are completely private inside the house. The waterfront back yard and beach access are only accessible to the full-time downstairs tenant. Vacation rental guests enjoy the waterfront location from their private deck off of the living room. Because of the shared nature of the small yard, smoking is not allowed on any part of our property.

Laura & Joe Ross - Having both owned houses before we married in February of 2009, we decided to try the vacation rental business rather than sell either. Our first guests were Laura's family, in town for the wedding. Since then, with Joe's work as a musician and dancer and our joint project of raising three kids, we are plenty busy! However, we take pride in putting our visitors first and have really enjoyed meeting our guests and sharing the city we love with them.
