About Teresa

We are native Seattlites, living now part time in Seattle, Sandpoint, ID and on our boat. We love West Seattle and feel there is no better place to feel part of a small beach community within a major metropolitan area. With the wonderful reviews by our guests of our first VRBO unit, we decided to add this second unit to VRBO in the spring of 2013.

Teresa purchased this condo in 2005

Why Teresa chose Alki

The location is very, very special. It has been in our family for two generations first as a beach cottage, in the 70's a new luxury executive suite 2 unit apartment was build on the site. In 2006 the building underwent a major remodel. This unit offers the quiet of a private waterfront location while being within easy walking distance to the fun activities of Alki Beach Park. If you choose to leave the beach for downtown Seattle, it is only minutes away. We believe this is the best place live and vacation in Seattle.

What makes this condo unique

Our property gives us the chance to see eagles flying overhead, sea lions, otters, sea birds within feet of the waterline, schools of orca when in season, even a gray whale once in a while. We love walking the beach finding treasures or simply being on the patio enjoying the sun and the sounds of the sea, walking to a restaurant or biking or roller blading from the front yard. It is inspiring to watch the boating traffic anything from sailboarders to sailing races to large commercial freighters. This place has a 'soul' to us and it and has been very loved part of our family.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Exactly as represented in the ad and more: beautifully decorated, tranquil, a stunning view, and great walking right outside the door. We came to Seattle both to visit with family and to escape from them and accomplished both objectives to the full.

Beautiful spot with a great view!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our recent stay here. The view is fantastic! It is within walking distance to restaurants and Alki Beach. There is a short rocky beach you can reach from the property as well. The bed was very comfortable and had great linens. My only suggestion would be to add a sun umbrella. We wanted to spend all our time outdoors but in the mid afternoon we just couldn't be out there without any sun protection. We would definitely stay here again.

Must see sunset views!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying here. The place is so nice and the views are incredible. The owner is very nice and there was everything we needed in the unit including a huge bedroom and walk in closet. It is in a perfect spot in Alki Beach. Close enough to walk to everything but not too close so once you get home its calm and quiet. Alki Beach has walking and bike trails all along the water that goes for miles. So instead of just eating and drinking our way thru Seattle we also got some much needed walks during our stay. We didn't want to leave and will definitely be back!

Wonderful respite from Texas searing heat

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from 10 glorious days where we had a mix of cold, cool and warm sunny day weather. The condo has a fireplace that lights with the flip of a switch, which made mornings and evenings quite cozy. We loved the surround sound speakers that played music throughout the unit. The high-end furnishings were the nicest of any VRBO we've stayed. Teresa was a pleasure to work with. There are plenty of restaurants in walking distance and West Seattle has plenty more in driving/Uber/Lyft distance. A few pods of Orca's and a couple of seals were viewed from the balcony which was just another reason this is a great place to restore your soul.

Perfect location for West Seattle

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed a 4 night stay at this Unit and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. All accommodations were as advertised. The condo is spacious and incredibly comfortable. All amenities are provided. The view and surrounding area is spectacular. We had a short walk to a variety of awesome restaurants and a short car ride, water taxi into downtown Seattle. The reserved parking spot at the condo came in very handy. We would stay here again for certain!

An Excellent Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This Alki water front property was awesome! It was very clean, well appointed, nicely furnished and quiet except for the ocean waves gently lapping the shore in the foreground. Just off the deck in the wavelets, seals floated, a pod of porpoises played and seventy-some sailboats with bright full spinnakers raced. Fun shops and good food &drink was a short walk down Alki Beach. We will be back again to enjoy this property.
