About the Owner

Hi, we're John and Liz! A little about us: we met in the south of France where we lived for several years before relocating to Seattle in 2000. John is Irish and speaks French, Spanish and Portuguese. Liz grew up on Bainbridge, a beautiful island in the Puget Sound. Our interests are varied: we're musicians, motorcyclists, fishers, hikers, skiiers, bikers, climbers, kayakers, entrepreneurs, sustainable farmers, gourmet foodie locavores, dog whisperer wannabees, wilderness lovers. We practice meditation and yoga and do our best to parent our wonderful four year old.

The location was perfect for our family and the home suited our needs just fine. The owner was attentive and when an issue arose, they were very quick to solve the problem.

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.

The house was a nice size, within walking distance of the city and a short drive to Seattle. It could hold up to eight people but had only six dining room chairs. The crib was a mattress only. The child gates did not work. The furniture was smelly. The kitchen could have been better equipped and more towels would have been nice. The decor was minimal but nice. There were no instructions for WiFi usage or garbage rules. WiFi was obtained 4 days after arrival. The grill was filthy and the grilling area overrun with weeds. Hopefully these concerns have been addressed by the owner who was informed.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. The dining room has only six chairs as there is not room for more. There is a pack and play crib in the house as well as a child mattress. We have checked the baby gates and they work fine. We're not sure what you intend by saying the furniture was smelly. We checked everything and could find no stains or odors. Why didn't you mention it during your stay? If you had asked for more towels we would have provided them, we normally only provide towels for eight people. The grill is impossible to maintain as nobody ever cleans it after use so it is being disposed of and we no longer provide a barbecue. Sorry about the weeds in the side yard, we'll get that cleaned up.

Great House, Great Location!!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 5 took their first trip to Seattle for a wedding and stayed 5 nights here in Ballard. What a great place!!! The townhouse was perfect and the location was perfect!!! Plenty of space for everyone and very clean. It was great to have a grocery store opened 24 hours and walking distance from the townhouse. Although the weather was hotter than normal (90's) the townhouse had fans that kept the place very comfortable.

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5
Our group included my 80 year old mother (very agile), teen - 20's children, husband and myself. It was perfect for us. John the owner was very quick to respond to any questions or needs. Great Ballad location. We had a car, but it would be great without a car too. Lots of room, so much better than multiple hotel rooms. I would go back, and would recommend it to friends. There are a number of steps as the pictures show, so it that's an issue, this isn't for you.

Excellent location

  • 4 of 5
Before securing the condo for the week, I emailed the owner asking about nearby parks and asking about baby gates because of the stairs and a crib. He assured me that there were parks within walking distance (there was and my son loved it) and he also assured me that there would be a crib and baby gates.
There was an old crib mattress in the garage, but there was no crib. Also, there were no baby gates. I actually used the crib mattress from the garage as a baby gate, but was disappointed that there was no crib or gates as promised. Also, the washcloths/towels have seen better days. Some smelled heavily of mildew.
The first four nights I was there it was just me and my three year old. After he went to bed I was disappointed by the lack of channels on the TV. Agreed, TV watching is not typically something you worry about while on vacation, but being "stuck" with a pre schooler (and later also an infant) it happens. We stayed in a condo instead of a hotel for the room, but hadn't thought about the amenities.
The hardwood floors were nice. There was a swiffer wet-jet in the closet, but no solution in it to use to clean. There was one roll of paper towels and just a couple of spare rolls of toilet paper. I planned on buying groceries, but didn't realize that meant toilet paper and tissues!
On the positive side, the location and neighborhood are great. We were within walking distance to parks, grocery, coffee, shops, etc. I felt safe and secure. When my husband, friend and baby arrived there was plenty of room for the five of us. I would absolutely recommend this location and I would stay in Ballard again.

Owner's Response: Hi Melissa, the crib is in the closet of the master bedroom. We checked it before your arrival and reverified today that it is still there. The two sets of baby gates are in the main closet. There are 45 cable TV channels available, I checked today that everything is working. We are very sorry about the sheets and towels. The cleaners must have left them in the machine too long. We have replaced all towels in the house today with new ones. I wish you had called us during your stay instead of waiting until after you had left, we would have instantly resolved all your concerns.
