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)

NICE AND FOUND AS ADVERTISED

  • 5 of 5
We traveled cross-country for our son's wedding, which was nearby at the Canal Restaurant and the locks/salmon ladders. Our stay lasted a week in early August. The location was perfect for us and the Ballard section of Seattle reminded me of a college town. The off-street parking was very convenient and welcomed. The apartment was found as advertised; clean, well-supplied and equipped, comfortable and quiet most of the time. The neighbors were friendly and courteous. The clothes washer and drier were used twice and worked well both times, although a washer-user manual would have been welcomed. The occasional stuffiness was eased by the available large fan. Public transportation was available and not far away. Eateries, coffee shops and a large grocery store were close by. Also, churches were convenient and we found one with no problem. Finally, the price was fair and I would recommend this property to a family member or friend.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your review! I was surprised to see the word stuffiness being used, I'm sure it was referring to the heat of August.
Our studio apartment has 3 medium size windows, an entrance door and french doors. We are also shaded all day in summer by a birch tree in the backyard and the neighboring house. At 1 1/2 mile from the shoreline we cool quickly in the afternoon with a very nice sea breeze. Seattle's overnight temperatures on August is a cool 57 degrees. Thank you for the opportunity to mention this! :)

Great place in Ballard

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I have stayed here twice, most recently in July, 2014. It is exactly as pictured -- very clean and well maintained. The owner, Mario, is very helpful and considerate. It is located about a 10min walk from the Ballard's cool bar/restaurant scene and only a few blocks from one of the best bakeries in Seattle (Cafe Besalu). This is a perfect place for a couple to stay in the Seattle area.

Perfect little city apartment

  • 5 of 5
This small apartment- one big room, really- is perfectly comfortable for a city vacation. The king-size bed is very comfortable. The house is walking distance to excellent restaurants, bakeries, coffee shops, stores and the bus stop. The backyard patio is also pleasing.

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.
