Overview

Old Ballard Townhome Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, Sleeps 8

Great location - Walk Score 95! The Northwesterner is a gorgeous three bedroom, two and a half bath townhome with central heat and A/C, surrounded by Pacific Northwest beauty, including a large Deodar Cedar tree in the hardscaped backyard. This comfortable home offers two king size beds, two twin beds and a queen size luxury sofa sleeper to accommodate a large group. Professionally decorated and completely furnished, you will find the luxurious decor contemporary and comfortable, enabling you to fully enjoy the home and its surroundings. There is a balcony off the dining area and the first floor master suite opens to a patio that lets you soak up the goodness the NW has to offer.

Sea to Sky Rentals proudly manages this property and provides three flat screen televisions with expanded cable, a blue-ray DVD player, local telephone service and wireless internet access, as well as a washer and dryer for your convenience. UPDATE: New flooring, paint and furnishings as of March 2016!

Just four blocks from NW Market Street, the major arterial through Ballard, this home is centrally located to everything! Check out Old Ballard Avenue on Sunday for the outdoor farmers market, walk to the Ballard Locks and watch the salmon swim and the boat elevator, head a little further west and check out Shilshole Bay and Marina, and Golden Gardens Park, one of the best beaches in Seattle. Along the way you will find an abundance of great shopping, dining, music, and dance venues. Just down the street is a wonderful in-city water spray park and skate park. Great selection of grocery stores offering local and organic items in addition to mass market products!

Convenient to other neighborhoods as well as downtown Seattle, via car or public transportation, including Greenlake, Woodland Park Zoo, Seattle Center and Lake Union. One complimentary parking spot is provided. We ask that guests park inside the garage only, and do not block neighbors' driveways or garages at any time.

Please note that major holidays require a 4 or 5 night minimum, depending on the holiday.

Reviewer Comments:

Our experience was absolutely the greatest. I've never used VRBO and I have to admit I was a little skeptical. Not no more! The unit had everything we needed. It was very clean and very well kept not to mention a perfect location. I would definitely recommend this unit. My wife and I will be using VBRO again.

Reviewer Comments:

My husband and I, my daughter and son in law, visited Seattle for the first time (my son is a Ballard resident) and we stayed at the Northwestern. I was pleased to find that its location was ideal, near to my son's apartment and walking distance to all the Ballard restaurants and fun places to visit. It was clean and well stocked with needed items. We didn't cook much but the kitchen was roomy and bright and clean, with a large eating area. The bedrooms/ baths were comfy and clean. We used the back outside patio pretty much daily. Great visit !

Reviewer Comments:

The location of this property was perfect for our trip. There were some things that needed updating, i.e. carpet in bedrooms. The only real negative was the parking situation. We were told that we could only park in the garage which was fine as we had occasional visitors who had vehicles. We did not have a vehicle to park. The neighbors parked in front of our garage the entire weekend we were there so we were unable to use the garage.

Reviewer Comments:

Apartment was very comfortable and in a great location. The rooms were very generous in size except for the lounge which was a little small. A neighbour's car was often parked in driveway but moved readily when requested. Squirrels amused us on back fence! Day-to-day supplies were in kitchen and there were plenty of pates, glasses etc. Overall a very satisfactory arrangement and we would be happy to stay again.

Reviewer Comments:

The place suited our needs. I would rent it again if a few things were fixed. The dishwasher is not attached properly. It falls out from the counter, displacing dishes, etc. It could easily fall out on children and hurt them. The cleaning service needs to know how to satisfactorily clean a place for the next tenants: cooked food was on a pan; dishes in cupboard were dirty; base of coffee pot hadn't been cleaned in ages; the base/floor around the toilets needs to be wiped, etc.
