About John Manning

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.

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.

Great location in Ballard

  • 4 of 5

This was a great townhouse for our family. We stayed here for a wedding at the Hotel Ballard and could actually walk there from the townhouse. The grocery store is a couple blocks away as are a ton of restaurants. We went to the Ballard farmers market on Sunday and visited the locks. There was plenty of space for our two granddaughters who loved the bathtub. We also appreciated the washer and dryer. Good choice for a family who can manage steps, as there are several levels.

This was a great place for our family to meet up and have wonderful family time and vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place for our family to meet up and have wonderful family time and vacation. The bedrooms were comfortable (except the basement bedroom could use a firmer mattress) and the bathrooms were clean and appropriately appointed. The parking is right in front of the garage door and not really an issue as others have noted. A very quiet neighborhood and close to any and all of the things you want to do in Seattle. The location is fantastic as it is 1 1/2 blocks from the grocery store (QFC), coffee place (Java Bean which is fantastic) and many other great restaurants. We ate at La Isla the first night there and were not disappointed in the authentic Puerto Rican cuisine. One night we ate at 8 oz

Burger & Co. and the burgers and garlic fries are excellent. Another night we ate at Patxi's Pizza and had a really great pizza and then stopped down the street for gelato at D'Ambrosio. Take a night to go to Elliot's and have the Oysters, Prawns, Crab, Crab cakes and Calimari which is fantastic. Some detail by the owner on the specifics for parking and garbage cans that should be used and where to put them on garbage night would be helpful. All in all we were very pleased and happy with our stay and would stay again if back in Seattle.

Clean, comfortable, well located, convenient

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a place in Ballard - our son lives there. This place is clean and well maintained. The area is quiet and seems safe for walking. It is about one short block from a very good grocery store. Within a 15 minute walking radius are numerous coffee shops, restaurants and other interesting small businesses. We had a parking space but did not bother renting a car, and did not miss it. The owner was courteous and helpful and responded quickly to a couple of minor questions we posed. We would gladly rent this place again. There is one small drawback - it is a multi-level place with lots of stairs, so not ideal for those with stair-climbing difficulties. Otherwise, overall, a place well worth renting.

We enjoyed being able to cook some of our meals together. Coffee shop and grocery store within walking distance. Waterfront and beach area just down the street. Parking was interesting but realized quickly that was just Seattle.

Owner's Response: To clarify for readers that haven't stayed with us before; there is private parking for one car in the driveway outside the garage door of the townhouse. Other cars need to be parked on the street. Street parking is free for up to seventy two hours but can be hard to park right outside the unit. In our experience, the farthest anyone has to go to park has been one block.

Big Space, Great location

  • 5 of 5

House was very clean and has enough space for 2 three person families (1 family per 2 bed bedroom), and one couple (room with one queen bed) in my opinion. 8 would be a max for a comfortable stay. The beds are soft, so if you're a bit on the heavier side, you might wake up with a sore back/hips as you sink in a bit. Same goes for the couches in the living/TV room. Though this wasn't a problem for our family. Kitchen is stocked with enough to get you started. (i.e.) oil, salt, pepper, coffee, sugar, sauces, and any other random things people left behind that can be reused. Anything more, there is a QFC 1 minute walking distance from the house. If you're staying for more than 2 nights, its worth stocking the kitchen unless you're eating out every night. For the price listed, I have zero complaints. It was like staying at my house but not my house. So comfortable. If I had to give any feedback, maybe get a better cable package? But even then, there is a DVD player with a limited library, so maybe come prepared with your favourite DVD's to cozy up to at night. Or also, in the upstairs bathtub/shower, there is a dip in the tub that slighltly sinks in when you step into it. It's nothing really, just something I noticed. Otherwise, its still super clean, great shower pressure and hot water for baths and showers.

Walking distance to Ballard town is very close by and the neighbourhood is full of things to see and shop and eat. Location is a plus on this one. I would stay here again and recommend to anyone else visiting.
