Great Ballard Location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our Seattle/Ballard visit and the house was enough space for our group of 4 adults.

The location is good, but parking is a challenge every day. Rapid-line buses are right out the door - so that could work. Home owner is very responsive and accommodating, Thanks!

Great house with lots of space!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed with another couple in this home and it was amazing! The house is very spacious and has a great patio deck. We had a small issue with the hot water heater and Karen quickly responded and the problem was fixed. We were able to check in a little early when we arrived in Seattle as well. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone looking to travel to Seattle! There was parking in the driveway for one car and you are close to Pikes Place. Plenty of eating to walk to nearby. We would gladly stay here again!

A very warm comfortable home away from home!!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter's new in-laws appreciated a quiet retreat from all the festivities. The yard with the pear tree, the intriguing books available to read. And the opportunity for the mother in law to shop our great bakeries and make breakfast for her family.

Ballard house impresses

  • 4 of 5

Stayed at this well appointed home in Ballard, a Seattle enclave with Scandinavian heritage. All the amenities provided, especially the spices and cookware, were greatly appreciated. The five of us were able to both relax at home and go out exploring Downtown Seattle, the University District, and the beaches. Will recommend to friends visiting Seattle.

Beautiful rental, very nice owners

  • 5 of 5

We used this house as a home base for a crew working on a nearby film shoot and the house was very comfortable. Owners had very clear instructions and couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. We would absolutely stay here again.
