Nice location in the city
Nice space, but it is always cold inside and we never saw nor spoke to the owner who lives upstairs, but we did hear them...a lot!
The rate was good but the fees and taxes made it more than a hotel would have been.
Such a great place! Everything we needed was provided. It’s a 15 minute walk to downtown Ballard. The cottage was clean and nicely decorated. We also slept well.
Thanks for sharing your lovely home with us!
Great local spot
Wonderful little cottage. Close and convenient to Downtown Seattle and loved the atmosphere of Ballard
Needed bed to sleep in area near grandchildren and family. This fit those needs. It was neat, clean and if I wanted to cook , I could have! As an older person, backing out of parking space which was vary narrow but well marked was a struggle for me. Parking is always a problem in the Seattle area.
Not the best experience
The place was certainly clean and in a great location. However, the noise from above & the train were bothersome. We had a nap in the late afternoon one day and between vacuuming (or something from upstairs) & the train, it was hard to rest. Another big downside was that the bed was VERY hard and uncomfortable. It was certainly not the worst experience, but we would not stay there again.
Taneille, we're glad to hear you enjoyed the location of this home! We aim to advertise our listings in the most accurate light by including as many details as possible. This is why we do note in the listing that this home is located along the train tracks so that travelers know what to expect before they book. However, we're sorry if this caught you off guard. You were correct, the noise you heard upstairs was the automatic vacuum that is programmed to run mid-day which is a time the owners found most people are out exploring. However, they will make sure they add a note for future guests to let them know if it is an issue, as they can easily reschedule the vacuum for another time. They apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your feedback. The homeowners do provide earplugs and a sound machine if the guest should need them. Mattress comfort can be a subjective matter, but we're sorry to hear you found it uncomfortable. However, the owners take feedback seriously and are considering adding a mattress topper to ensure guest comfort. As evidenced by previous reviews, we're confident this home will continue to host many satisfied guests! Best, the Evolve Team
Cozy Ballard retreat
We loved our stay in this cozy Ballard VRBO. Very much as advertised. There is train noise but we did not find it bothersome. The lower level apartment is sparkling clean and very comfortable. Super convenient to the amenities of Ballard and a quick walk down to the locks.
