Excellent house, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Our team stayed at this house for three weeks. The owner was attentive and gracious. The entire interior had just been repainted and everything was spotless. Beds are comfortable and seem high quality. There is only parking for one car and we had to park our other car on the street. It is really close to downtown Ballard which is great in the evenings for walking to restaurants.

Big Space, Great location

  • 5 of 5

House was very clean and has enough space for 2 three person families (1 family per 2 bed bedroom), and one couple (room with one queen bed) in my opinion. 8 would be a max for a comfortable stay. The beds are soft, so if you're a bit on the heavier side, you might wake up with a sore back/hips as you sink in a bit. Same goes for the couches in the living/TV room. Though this wasn't a problem for our family. Kitchen is stocked with enough to get you started. (i.e.) oil, salt, pepper, coffee, sugar, sauces, and any other random things people left behind that can be reused. Anything more, there is a QFC 1 minute walking distance from the house. If you're staying for more than 2 nights, its worth stocking the kitchen unless you're eating out every night. For the price listed, I have zero complaints. It was like staying at my house but not my house. So comfortable. If I had to give any feedback, maybe get a better cable package? But even then, there is a DVD player with a limited library, so maybe come prepared with your favourite DVD's to cozy up to at night. Or also, in the upstairs bathtub/shower, there is a dip in the tub that slighltly sinks in when you step into it. It's nothing really, just something I noticed. Otherwise, its still super clean, great shower pressure and hot water for baths and showers.

Walking distance to Ballard town is very close by and the neighbourhood is full of things to see and shop and eat. Location is a plus on this one. I would stay here again and recommend to anyone else visiting.

Great stay in the heart of Ballard

  • 5 of 5

The house was quite comfortable for our family of 5, plus my parents. The location is unbeatable - 5 minute walk to the grocery store (and candy/ice cream store!), a few minutes longer to the Ballard Locks. Great restaurants all over the place. The Ballard Seafood festival was happening just down the street, with lots of great food to survey.

Parking can be a little tricky - the place has a spot for one car, but if you have a second car you might need to be patient to hunt down a street spot.

Great location, reasonable rates, very clean!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed over the weekend with my wife, daughter, son-in law and their one year old. Townhouse was clean and well supplied. Neighborhood was quiet and very close to downtown Ballard. Will be staying there again whenever we go to visit. Highly recommend.

Cozy condo for family gathering in Ballard

  • 4 of 5

My family and I rented this 3-bedroom condo over the Christmas holiday. There were 8 of us, five adults and 3 children ranging 13-2.5 years old. We liked the quiet and convenient location of the condo in Ballard, which allowed us to walk to the grocery store, cafes, shops, the library and the locks. It was also easy enough to travel to downtown Seattle, the zoo and other neighborhoods. John, the owner, is friendly and helpful. He allowed us to put up a tree and few decorations to make the condo festive for the Christmas holiday. The condo had ample bedrooms and bathrooms for our group, and the condo came with basic amenities. However, it might not have been the best fit for us because we celebrated Christmas there and found that the kitchen was not that well equipped for cooking lots of meals, and it was not possible for all of us to sit down to a meal together. The table was not big enough nor were there eight chairs. While other reviewers found the condo to be very clean, we were disappointed by the cleanliness of the condo overall; for example some of the towels were stained and musty, and the downstairs carpet was very soiled. The condo has lots of stairs that are quite slippery. While the owner provides baby gates (greatly appreciated), I still wouldn't recommend the condo for families with toddlers on the move. The place is perfect for grown-up families and adult get-aways.

The 3 bedroom townhome was perfect! I stayed there with my 3 sisters and loved everything about it! The location was great, the description of the property was accurate - no surprises! Couldn't have asked for anything better! It was very clean, plenty of towels, very roomy - no issues whatsoever. Would definitely stay there again!!!
