BALLARD COZY, WARM & PRIVATE HOME APARTMENT.

Seattle Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Note: If you have a party of 3 or more adults you may want to check my other listing (#559766) located in the same building on the top floor. This is a 2 bdrm -2 lofts apartment with four queen beds that can accommodate 4 to 8 people more comfortably.

Our cozy Ballard mother-in-law apartment is only ½ mile from the Ballard downtown core. Yet, far enough removed that you can enjoy a peaceful night sleep in our quiet and friendly neighborhood.

The apartment was recently renovated. Located in the first floor of our property (not a basement) it has easy access with only three steps from street level. Here you will find all the standard amenities that you would normally find in a hotel like, wireless internet, hair dryer, iron and ironing board, computer desk, coffee maker, toaster and microwave.

Other amenities include:

- Private, independent entrance with a keyless electronic door lock.

- Well-lit entrance with sensor lights for late arrivals.

- The unit comes with its own off-street parking (first one to the left) and plenty of free street parking as well.

- King bed with high quality mattress, Simmons Beautyrest, truly fit for a king

- 25 mbp. high speed internet cable with Wi-Fi access.

- 40' internet connected smart apps TV with Netflix included.

- Full size refrigerator, gas cook-top, microwave, coffeemaker and toaster.

- Kitchen stocked with pots and pans and set of silverware for four.

- Bathroom with toilet, sink and shower.

- Free use of our home gym included.

- Free use of our bikes to go explore the area.

- Access to private backyard with table and chairs (just behind French doors in picture).

The Neighborhood.

Ballard was a city of its own in the past founded when cars didn't exist. It was later absorbed by its bigger sister city of Seattle becoming one of its many neighborhoods. For this reason, this safe and friendly neighborhood gets a high walk score. We are close to most businesses, including award winning restaurants, that can be reached on foot from our property.

Public Transportation.

Seattle is a city with a solid public transportation, specially when it comes to public buses.

We are located less than half a block from the bus stop. You can take routes #18 and #40; both will take you to downtown Seattle. Route #40 also goes to the Northgate Mall in its northbound route. Route #44 on Market Street will take you to UW. Google Maps works particularly well with the public transportation option for the Seattle area. If you prefer you can also download to your phone the One Bus Away App that was designed by a graduate student from UW and has world o information like all routes, arrival times and timetables, delays rout options, live maps, etc.

Originally from Cuba I have lived for over 19 years in the Seattle area. My wife and I enjoy meeting new people and I love traveling and learning about different cultures. I do enjoy tasting food from different parts of the world, which makes Ballard particularly a good place for that with its many restaurants.

Mario Dominguez purchased this apartment in 2013

I bought this house because I found myself coming to Ballard again and again following tips from friends of restaurants, bakeries, pubs and for outdoor activities. Also because the neighborhood is safe, clean and surrounded by good schools that will make raising a family here easier.

Conveniently located in the Ballard area. Walking distance to: NW Market St, Ballard public library, Golden Gardens, Hiram M. Chittenden Locks, restaurants, french bakery, pubs and bus stops to Downtown Seattle (#40 south), Northgate Mall (#40 North) and Udistrict (#44 West)

VISITORS FROM MAINE

The homeAway in Ballard was perfect, with off street parking, laundry facilities and a small yard. It was clean, very quiet, and well stocked with dishes, towels, etc. The pillows were luxurious, the king bed the best. The kitchen was adequate, altho it had no oven. The location was great--close to the Sunday market, good restaurants, etc. We never met Mario, but he was very quick to answer any questions, and to refund the deposit. We would highly recommend this apt, and hope to use it again the next time we visit Seattle.

WONDERFUL LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
I secured this rental for my folks who were visiting Seattle. I loved the location in Ballard. Close to all that the downtown of Ballard is and close to my home in North Beach. Mario was very helpful and accommodating and the rental itself was lovely and had everything in it that my folks could have needed.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Alison for your nice review! We really miss this mattress. We got it for us but quickly realize that we had made a mistake because it overwhelmed our bedroom with its size. We downsized to a queen bed from another brand and it was not the same. Thank's again!

WE'LL BE BACK!!

We'll be back!!
  • 5 of 5
This cozy, comfy, and clean apartment was just perfect for us! Conveniently located in the Ballard area of Seattle, we were in walking distance to everything we needed! It is exactly as the website stated, and the few questions we had, Mario was quick with a response. It was our first experience with a VRBO and truthfully, as long as our daughter and son in law continue to live in Ballard, we will be back at Mario's place!! Our security deposit was quickly refunded. I only wish the weather permitted us to get a chance to ride the bicycles. But that's Seattle! We are delighted to have found this little place and have already recommended it to our family! The fireplace was certainly an added bonus, and we did use it!!! We look forward to any more visits!!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much Carol for taking the time to leave a review about our place. You missed the nice days by a day or two. Right now (end of April) We have been having an amazing weather, on the other hand, my family in Miami, Fl has been complaining about the heat for about a month already. Thank you! :)

BALLARD GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent 3 nights at the Ballard studio in March and we would just like to say that the rental far exceeded our expectations. Mario maintains the apartment in top shape and he was professional and responsive to any inquiries we had. The apartment is a beautiful, clean, and comfortable space and is represented well by the photos and descriptions he provides on the website. The check-in and check-out process was easy and our damage deposit was returned to us promptly after check-out (the same day). The rental is on a quiet side street, but still in walking distance to the commercial core of the Ballard neighborhood and only a few blocks from a new, upscale QFC grocery store. Don't miss the delicious croissants and pastries just a few blocks down the street at Cafe Besalu! Thanks for a great stay, Mario!
