All restaurants on Alki Beach are a short walk away, as are local shops, and there's a water taxi just a little further off. Alki Beach is a beautiful public sandy beachfront and location to numerous celebrations in the Summer months, including the Seafair Pirate landing party. All Summer long, you'll see bonfires, beach volleyball & kayakers. Head to the hip urban village at West Seattle Junction to enjoy many small shops, restaurants, and bars giving West Seattle an eclectic & community vibe. The free #773 or #775 shuttle is just steps away from our house and this will take you directly to the water taxi station (water taxi station is 1.5 miles walk otherwise).

You can also rent these new but reliable city bikes that are left around. Just download the app (SPIN or LIME Bikes) and find out where the nearest available bike is, then leave it in any spot once done. Rate is about $1 per 30 minutes.- very economical and practical way to explore and get around our beach neighborhood :) Uber, Lyft, Car2Go are also viable options. ReachNow is also available with SmartCars, BMWs, Mercedes-Benzs and Mini Coopers. ReachNow is a one and two-way rental car solution that can be parked and left at our house. Approximate cost is $0.41 a minute. Traffic can get pretty heavy on the West Seattle Bridge if you're getting onto the I5- BUT one of the best parts about living here in West Seattle is the the "hidden" routes and surface streets you can take to avoid the traffic jam on the WS bridge. Parking downtown Seattle is always free on Sundays and Holidays. Otherwise, parking ranges from $2-5/hour and about $20 per day for parking garages. -There are 9 steps with no hand railing to get up to our studio entrance. Please keep this in mind for late night arrival and suitcases. The auto light sensor will come on at night to aid in the night time arrivals. -We live in a very hilly area where certain parts are steep. It is definitely manageable, but not recommended for elderly or people with slight disabilities. -We do not have a washer or dryer in unit. -No Air Conditioning Unit. -We have radiant in-floor heating and it will take a couple hours for the heat to rise to your desired temperature. -We do not have a full Kitchen.

Cabin in Redmond
Whimsical House with Enchanting Gardens
Custom built space with eco-friendly sustainable materials. This place is tucked away in what feels like the country in the city...enjoy a morning with fresh coffee on the rocking chair porch and relax listening to the sounds of birds. Nice quiet space with nearby park cheer from time-to-time. This is a dog loving property with friendly neighborhood pooch's hanging out, so if you are afraid of dogs, please give us proper notice so we can accommodate. Guest access to the Gazebo, Island, 2-acre Trails and Treehouse is by APPOINTMENT ONLY for the time being - we are renovating and finishing many-a-things and will open them up for public use and fun asap. We are friendly people who respect privacy. We consider new visitors new friends and try to meet all our guests so you feel comfortable with the surroundings and enjoy them even more. We're happy to offer friendly guidance, info and support (discount for writers and artists who stay and create and share)! We really want you to enjoy your time with us. There is 3 additional buildings on the property so friendliness is a must. Nested between a park and suburban neighborhoods, the three acre property off a small graveled lane, is embraced by limited residents and undeveloped forest areas that create a secluded, quiet and private vibe. Right outside the house's gates, is a trail leading through the woods to the park for peaceful walks under giant cedars, maples, pines, and douglas firs. Giant rhodedendrons, mossy trees, and native plants bring a variety of wildlife to the property and neighborhood. Close to both 405 and 520. Walking distance to Microsoft! The bus system is within close walking distance as well and there is a path to Grasslawn park right out the door and through the woods. There's also the bike trail leading to the burke trail just a few neighborhoods away. Bike friendly and we're tuning a few of ours to also offer to our guests...stay tuned on that perk. This is a 1-bedroom facility (3-ish story) with a loft and day bed all within the same air-space as the queen main bed. So if you plan on having 4 people stay (family) you'll be bonding even more so! Bring your story books and ear plugs if you're planning on sharing the space. :) And if you're planning on taking advantage of the sofa bed downstairs in the living room - get ready to wake with the sun! East facing beds for sunrise alarms available pending the season. There are too many windows to count... Also please note that this house has many imperfections and really is more of an art project. Expect lot's of "character". There are many areas that could be better and we'll continue to improve them as we can invest in them. In the interim, we just think they are kinda cute and enjoy finding joy in our faults and imperfections. We appreciate your feedback and support by staying with us and hope to add to your enjoyment of the area and space.
