Overview

Property Details

Updated: Sep 13, 2014
4 queen beds, up to 8 guests, 1/2 mile From Market Street in Ballard.

This 2 bedroom- 2 sleeping lofts apartment seats atop of our Seattle, Ballard Home. The unit is private and independent, modern and warm with a simple but nice decor. Each of the 4 rooms has a new queen bed mattress in it. A total of 8 people are able to sleep comfortably (in pairs).

The high ceilings that allow the lofts also make it feel airy and spacious. The many windows let in lots of natural lighting. On clear days we get a beautiful view of Mount Rainier and the Space Needle right in front of it, albeit from the unit’s entrance and the south facing loft only.

The apartment comes with all the standard amenities that you would expect to find in a regular hotel room like, ironing board and iron, hair dryer, soap, shampoo, toothpaste, coffee maker, toaster, toilet paper, clean linens, fresh sheets, etc.

The kitchen has a gas stove/oven, full fridge, dishwasher, cooking utensils, pots and pans. There is a dinnerware set for 8 person. We have a Keurig coffee maker with some coffee pods included to get you started in your morning coffee. There is an electric tea kettle and toaster.

The round table is expandable from 4 to 8 people allowing your entire group to come together for dinner. Four folding chairs are stored away in the closet near the entrance.

In each of the two bedrooms we have installed wall-mounted drop-leaf desks that are out of the way when not in use but, are perfect for those needing to get some work done while in vacation.

The 39' flat HDTV in the living-room comes with 40 plus antenna channels and Netflix access included via a Roku player.

Other amenities included:

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

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

- Off-street parking (first one to the right) and plenty of free street parking as well.

- 25 mbp. high speed internet cable with latest technology Wi-Fi router.

- Bathroom with toilet, sink and tub/shower.

- Clean linens, soap, shampoo, toothpaste and toilet paper included.

- Free use of our home gym.

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

- Access to private backyard with table and chairs.

- Free use of Washer and Dryer for stays of 3 days or longer.

Location:

We are located only ½ miles from the Ballard downtown core. Yet, far enough removed that you can enjoy a peaceful night sleep in our quiet and friendly neighborhood.

Neighborhood:

Ballard has being called by some a foodie’s paradise for its many and diverse restaurants, bars, cafes and bakeries. It attracts young and less-young people with active lifestyles because of the many outdoor activities available here. There is the 27-mile multi-use recreational Burke-Gilman trail, Golden Gardens Beach and park, an indoor rock climbing gym, kayaking, fishing, boating and bicycling and other outdoor activities.

Public transportation:

The bus stop is at the corner of our block. There, you can take routes #18 and #40; both will take you to downtown Seattle. Route #40 (I am more familiar with) takes you to downtown in 30 minutes at a cost of $2.25. In its northbound route it will take you to the Northgate Mall. Route #44 on Market Street will take you to UW.

Google Maps works particularly well with the public transportation option in the Seattle area. You can also download to your phone the One Bus Away App that was designed by a local UW graduate student.

Note:

Groups larger than 6 are quoted incorrectly by this website. We manually adjust the cost as follows:

-Groups of 7 guests pay an additional $75/night (3 extra guests @ $25/person/night).

-Groups of 8 guests pay an additional $80/night (4 extra guests @ $20/person/night)

-Days still available within 10 days of check-in are discounted 9.5% (We pay the tax for you!)

Great place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5
We had 5 adults stay in the apt for a week. It was very clean and comfortable (especially the beds). The apartment descriptions are all accurate. Ballard is a nice neighborhood. We had convenient parking and were fairly close to a QFC grocery store. We used the kitchen daily for coffee and breakfast (it's small but has everything you need). I would highly recommend this place to anyone!

We stayed three nights at this apartment in Ballard (Seattle) Washington. The location in Ballard was easy to get to and accessible to points north and south. Ballard ended up being our favorite place to hang of the areas in Seattle that we visited. The restaurants we visited were all top notch.
The layout and amenities of the apartment were great. The décor and furnishings were cohesive and comfortable. Even the loft areas were easily accessible. Opening the windows in each loft created a great cross breeze in the loft area. The lofts became our favorite place to nap after sightseeing and family visits.
The apartment was 2 ½ stories above the driveway, so there were a good number of steps. However, on a clear day, you can see Mt Rainier through the window at the top of the stairs. We discovered this on our second day as a guest.
The owner was very accommodating.

Great Unique Offering

  • 4 of 5
Great little place with lots of amenities. Ballard is hip and neat and close to the city. Loved the location and the unit. Would recommend to folks that want a different view of Seattle and like the uniqueness of Ballard. Nearby are the locks, Golden Gardens, many many restaurants. Love the location.

Location

From the Owner

If you are familiar with Seattle you know how beautiful, cosmopolitan and welcoming this city is. When previously living in the North end of the city I found myself coming to Ballard again and again following tips from friends for restaurants, bakeries, pubs and outdoors activities. We chose to live in Ballard because it is a safe, clean neighborhood surrounded by good schools with lots of outdoor activities, like walking, running, bicycling, rock climbing etc.
