West Seattle

A community of natural beauty with a laid-back vibe

  • what you’ll fall in love with

    Much of West Seattle is bordered by water, promising a plethora of gorgeous Puget Sound views! There’s stunning waterfront parks to explore, and Alki Beach is quite the destination. People also love the funky old-school charm of the Junction, West Seattle’s “main street” that’s the ideal spot for dining, bar hopping, and browsing cute shops!

  • market

    West Seattle boasts a largely diverse range of homes, townhomes, condos, and single family residences. So, for many, it's a long haul neighborhood meaning you'll be able to stay here through the many seasons of life.

  • What to expect

    The people who live in West Seattle LOVE living there. West Seattle is HUGE, and basically its own city that’s made up of smaller micro-neighborhoods, each one with its own unique feel.

  • real talk

    West Seattle feels like its own city which has its positives but also means you can be somewhat isolated from Seattle proper. There really is no need to come to the city so you'll want to be prepared to dive into the culture and activities of West Seattle. Also, commuting into Downtown is doable but if you work on the Eastside you'll want to negotiate a few work from home days. .

welcome to West Seattle

When you want to feel like you’ve escaped the city a bit but you still need to be close to Downtown or SLU for work, West Seattle beckons! This gem is just a hop, skip and a jump over the West Seattle Bridge (or commute via water taxi!), and it’s got everything you need in a neighborhood. From sprawling parks that let you get lost in nature to its own cute “downtown” area that’s perfect for hanging out, West Seattle offers ample opportunity for play and relaxation all with convenience right at your fingertips.

We’ve found that California transplants especially seem to love West Seattle—people find that it has a similar “vibe” to the Golden State, and Alki Beach surely contributes to that.

TRANSIT

Some people might have the impression that West Seattle is “too far away,” but with so many great transit options you can still easily zip around the city from here! West Seattle has a myriad of bus lines, and those who need to utilize the bus to commute for work will likely find the RapidRide C Line most useful. This line has several stops throughout West Seattle and and goes straight into the heart of Downtown Seattle and South Lake Union. You can also take a water taxi straight into Downtown Seattle if that’s more your style!

For those who love to jet off to far away vacations or just need to travel frequently for work, West Seattle is a *prime* choice—you’re just about a 15-18 minute drive (depending where in West Seattle you live) right to the airport. The Fauntleroy Terminal is in West Seattle, and from here you can head on a weekend getaway to Vashon Island or hop on over to Southworth, making it easy to access places like Port Orchard, Bremerton, etc.

Plus, Light Rail is coming to town with 5 added stations between the Stadiums and Alaska Junction (coming in 2030!).
