Property Details

Updated: Jan 19, 2015
Cozy, centrally located, and easy access to public transportation

Note: If you have a group of 3 or more people you may want to check my other listing (#559766) located in the same building on the top floor. This is a 2 bdrm -2 lofts apartment with four queen beds that can accommodate 4 to 8 people more comfortably.

Property Address: 2423 NW 64th St. Seattle, WA 98107 (Ballard Neighborhood)

Our cozy Ballard mother-in-law apartment is conveniently located a half mile from the Ballard downtown core yet; is far enough removed that you can enjoy a peaceful night sleep in our quiet, safe and friendly neighborhood.

Many of my guests leave their car parked at home to avoid the hustle of finding parking or having to pay for it, they simply walk down on 24th Ave to Market St. Just 5 short blocks away are two of my favorite bakeries, Café Besalu and next door, Tall Grass Bakery. They make artisan breads and pastries, the best in town. There are other small businesses on 24th like Olaf’s a nice pub literally around the corner. A hamburger joint Scooter’s and a nice big grocery store (QFC) with free underground parking for getting your groceries. My guests have also told me they enjoyed and appreciated very much the convenience of grabbing bus #40 at the street corner and riding to downtown Seattle.

The apartment was recently renovated. Located in the first floor of our property (not a basement) it has easy access with only three steps from street level. Here you will find all the standard amenities that you would normally find in a hotel wireless internet, hair dryer, iron and ironing board, computer desk, coffee maker, toaster and microwave.

Other amenities include:

- Private, independent entrance with a keyless electronic door lock.

- Well-lit entrance with sensor lights for late arrivals.

- The unit comes with its own off-street parking (first one to the left). There is free street parking on our block also.

- King bed with high quality mattress, Simmons Beautyrest, truly fit for a king

- 25 mbp high speed, private network internet cable with fast, latest technology Wi-Fi router.

- 40' internet connected smart apps TV with Netflix included.

- Full size refrigerator, gas cook-top, microwave, coffeemaker and toaster.

- Kitchen stocked with pots and pans and set of silverware for four.

- Bathroom with toilet, sink and shower.

- Free use of our home gym included.

- Free use of our bikes to go explore the area.

- Access to private backyard with table and chairs (just behind French doors in picture).

- 10% Discount for returning guests

The Neighborhood.

Ballard was a city of its own in the past founded when cars didn't exist. It was later absorbed by its bigger sister city Seattle. For this reason, it can still feel like a small town retaining its downtown, working waterfront and old businesses open to date. Many warehouses and storefronts though, have been converted to tasty new restaurants, like my favorite Mexican, La Carta de Oxaca on Ballard ave.

Public Transportation.

Seattle is a city with a solid public transportation when it comes to buses.

We are located less than half a block from the bus stop. You can take routes #18 and #40 at our block corner of 24th and 64th; both will take you to downtown Seattle. Route #40 also goes to the Northgate Mall in its northbound route. Route #44 on Market Street will take you to UW.

If you have a smart phone you can use Google maps and chose the public transportation option when planning your route. You may also find very useful the OneBusAway App with real time transit information, timetables and route planing. This App was first develop here at home at the UW and it is now in use all over the US and abroad.

About the Owner

Originally from Cuba I have lived for over 19 years in the Seattle area. My wife and I enjoy meeting new people, traveling and learning about different cultures. I enjoy tasting food from different parts of the world, which makes Ballard particularly a good place for its many restaurants.

Comfortable and Accomodating

  • 5 of 5
When visiting Seattle we have previously stayed in Hotels, however we wanted to try something different by staying in a home apartment that had more room and a kitchen. Compared to hotels this was a much better value and it included laundry and workout room and is convenient to everything we like about the Seattle area. We highly recommend this apartment and we will stay here again.

Best in Ballard!

  • 5 of 5
This is truly the perfect home away from home. It is not only an attractive space but well equipped with a kitchen, laundry, very comfortable bed, and easy access. The rental property is within a quick walking distance to popular Ballard Ave and attractions like Golden Gardens Park. The owner is very accommodating and flexible. We've stayed in our fair share of VRBO properties around Ballard due to work and this is hands down the best.

Visitor from MN

We have family in Seattle and love visiting there a couple of times a year. This was a great alternative to staying with the children or staying at a hotel. It was a real "home away from home". The owner has provided everything necessary for a comfortable stay - well equipped kitchen , a very comfy bed, lovely furnishings and a beautiful backyard patio right outside the door. There was also plenty of tourist information about Seattle as well as bus schedules. The location is perfect as it is close to shopping, restaurants and coffee shops , movie theatre, library, post office and the Ballard Market. We were able to walk to each of these places. It was a very clean and well decorated apartment and we hope to stay there the next time we come to Seattle.

Just as described

  • 5 of 5
The apartment was clean & comfortable. The online description was completely accurate and Mario responded promptly when we had questions.
Ballard was a perfect location for our visit; a very pleasant neighborhood with good restaurants and coffee shops. Lots within walking distance and just a short drive to our son's apartment in Fremont. We stayed a week so having the laundry machines on site was helpful. We'll stay here again when we're back in Seattle.

From the Owner

I bought this house because I found myself coming to Ballard again and again following tips from friends of restaurants, bakeries, pubs and for outdoor activities. Also because the neighborhood is safe, clean and surrounded by good schools that will make raising a family here easier.
