West Seattle is only minutes from downtown Seattle, and yet it feels like a world away. You can get here from all points by car (using the West Seattle Bridge) or direct from downtown by boat (via the West Seattle water taxi across Elliott Bay) when you rent in West Seattle. While the community has experienced dramatic growth in recent years, our West Seattle vacation rentals still has a small town feel.
Beaches wrap around the western, northern, and eastern edges of the West Seattle peninsula. You’ll find many restaurants and bars along the Alki Strip (Alki Ave SW starting at 63rd Ave SW, heading east til about 57th Ave. SW). Two more traditional “Main Street” style restaurant and shopping districts can be found along north-to-south California Ave. SW. Admiral Junction runs between Hill and Lander streets, it’s home to the historic Admiral Theater, West Seattle’s only movie house. Alaska Junction, West Seattle’s largest dining and shopping district, runs between Oregon and Edmonds streets. On Sundays year-round, two blocks close to street traffic for the West Seattle Farmers Market. Morgan Junction has a few restaurants and taverns centered a few blocks around the intersection of Fauntleroy Way SW, California Ave. SW and Morgan St. Endoyne is a hidden nest of two restaurants and a bakery, just southeast of the Southworth Ferry Dock. The Delridge Corridor, leading from the West Seattle Bridge all the way to White Center sees new restaurants, coffee houses and merchants opening all the time.
