About the property

quiet oasis in the heart of the ballard neighborhood

This is a 1550 sqft nicely furnished 3bdrm, 3.5ba, 3 story home. Only 2 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms available for use.

Main Floor:

comprises the living room, dining room, kitchen and 1/2 bath. The full kitchen includes granite counters, gas appliances, soda stream, coffee maker, toaster, blender, microwave, d/w. The living room has some custom furniture, a gas fireplace and large swing out tv that stores flat against the wall.

2nd Floor:

has 2 bedrooms, the linen closet and the w/d closet. Every bedroom has its own on-suite private bathroom. One with a queen spring/memory foam mattress and a full bath. The other with a queen memory foam mattress and a 3/4 bath.

3rd Floor:

is the master suite with owner's personal items. This room is not available for use and will be locked.


We enjoy entertaining and grilling. The patio is set-up to enjoy the outside and stay warm around the fire as night falls. When enjoying the patio fire pit be respectful with noise and how late you enjoy it.

Guest Access

You will have access to 2 of the 3 bedrooms currently. The 3rd bedroom is a home office that is locked.

The couch is not a sofa bed but you could sleep a 5th person there. There is ample floor space to use our airbed in the master or guest room. Please let us know if you need the double and/or single air mattress.

plenty of linens and towels in the hall closet.

We use keyless door locks that we can oversee remotely.

Interaction with Guests

We are available if there is something you need. Otherwise we will not be on premise during your visit. If there is an emergency you can contact us or any of our friendly neighbors to assist.

The Neighborhood

Ballard is a thriving bedroom community north of downtown Seattle. It has become a go to foodie destination with plenty of weekend night life and live music. Fremont is very close as well with similar offerings. And downtown Seattle is only a 15min drive or 25min straight bus ride away.

Getting around

We are 3 walking blocks from the center of Ballard with loads of dining choices, music venues, pub crawling and shopping. 2 walking blocks to grocery stores, pharmacies and bus stop.

For those here on business, we are 1.5 blocks from the 15th Ave D-Line express bus stop to downtown Seattle. Car2Go is also a good option with no parking fees.

There is free street parking. And we are 1 block from 2 full grocery stores and 2 pharmacies.

The Ballard locks is entertaining with a nice park. Great place to watch the salmon run if your timing is right. Shilshole and Golden Gardens are on the water and a great place to watch the sunset. They are a short drive away or a great 1.5hr round trip walk for exercise.

Other Things to Note

The refrigerator ice maker works great. The ice and water dispenser is temperamental. It works most of the time but sometimes it has a gremlin.

The house is not very kid friendly with lots of stairs and some sharp furniture corners.

Awesome place, terrific location

  • 5 of 5

Awesome place for our family trip. Great location to walk to fun things, all nearby. Owners warm and welcoming. And great treat--the home was stocked with supplies, gear, and even lots of food sundries. We felt right at home!

Great location

  • 4 of 5

The house has an excellent location, being an easy walk to dozens of restaurants, pubs, breweries and stores. It's also just a short walk to the bus stop. We hired a car for a couple of days, and managed to find parking spaces within a block or two of the house. The house itself is very comfortable, nicely furnished and well equipped, and spacious enough for two couples to enjoy. As the weather was mostly warm during our stay, we often dined outside on the patio. One evening was a little cool, so we made use of the patio fireplace. Overall, a very pleasant experience.

Great location-wonderful home

  • 5 of 5

We had a great long weekend with our family. Home is located in Ballard and close to great restaurants, coffee shops and the Chittenden Locks. Close enough to all of the sites and sounds of Seattle. We would recommend and return when we travel to Seattle again.

This Ballard property was fantastic.

  • 5 of 5

This property was very well appointed. The owner was gracious and allowed us early access as we'd flown from Alaska and arrived in Seattle at 6a.m. The property had everything needed for a luxurious relaxing 4 day weekend. We shall return.

Great vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for two couples visiting Seattle for the first time. We loved the Ballard area and the convenience of walking to restaurants. Enjoyed sitting outside with a glass of wine by the firepit. The house is in a quiet neighborhood and was as described. The kitchen was well equipped and there was a market nearby so we were able to eat in after a busy day of sightseeing. Parking is on street but we did not have a problem parking.
