Why Melissa Flynn chose Ballard

The property was purchased nearly twenty years ago when Melissa was given the first-choice to buy as a tenant. The great neighborhood and charm plus added bonus of it being income property made it an irresistible opportunity.

What makes this bungalow unique

So perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5
This rental was perfect for my husband and I. We were just 1 mile from my son and his girlfriend so it was easy for us to drop each other off and get together. Since my son and his girlfriend had a roommate, the living room at the duplex was great for us to visit among ourselves. The rental was spotless and had everything anyone could ever need. Also, the water pressure in the shower was excellent, and that is always a "plus" for me. There is no doubt we will be using this property in the future. It is excellent!

Returning to Ballard

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay here in Ballard ( a neighborhood we had lived in for 5 year}. The accommodations were comfortable, quiet, very convenient, walkable and just what we were hoping for. The owner misses no detail in providing all the little things you might need and some delicious treats. You can walk to all the shops and restaurants in Ballard and within 2 blocks get buses to downtown, University District. Wallingford and Golden Garden Park and Queen Anne.

Loved walking the neighborhood

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here over a long Labor Day weekend with my daughter and her husband and son, while we were all in town for my other daughter's wedding. It was fabulous! Just what we wanted. Very homey and comfortable. i LOVED the large closets with dressers--we could unpack and not have suitcases all over. Loved the cookies and stuff left in the fridge for us. We didn't use the stove much (though we really appreciated the gas) because there were so many pre-wedding events. And never turned on the TV, though we enjoyed the old-fashioned radio in the living room. We walked to Ballard Mkt, and enjoyed Portage Bay for breakfast, and the locks and fish ladders. My daughter says they will certainly stay there next time they come to Seattle, and I am certainly recommending it to my friends.

Perfect Place to Stay While in Seattle

  • 5 of 5
Melissa is amazing and her house is so charming! I told her my flight was delayed, and when I arrived there were fresh home made muffins with a very thoughtful note and tips for seeing the city. The bed is comfy, the house is clean and the location is very convenient! Not only do I recommend this property, I will most definitely be staying there again when I return to Seattle!

At home

  • 5 of 5
A comfy, welcoming home, ready for relaxing. A modest exterior with extra special touches inside. The kitchen is complete and ready for real cooking; the bedroom is in back and with the open window one is greeted with birdsong in the morning; the living room is meant for hanging out with a good book. Melissa has anticipated the needs of hr guests, and her home reflects attention to detail. I have already made my next reservation.

Perfectly Seattle

  • 5 of 5
This home is just what I think of when I think of Seattle...nice neighborhood...small yard...small (but not too small) house. The layout of the house was very nice with everything we could possibly need for the kitchen and bathroom. Very cute with comfortable homey feel. For our purposes the location was perfect as we were there to see our daughter who lives in the Green Lake area.
