Ballard Cozy, Warm & Private Home Apartment.


Property Details

Updated: Oct 17, 2016
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.

We had a wonderful stay and found the property just as advertised. The bed is a wonderful treat! I highly recommend it. Mario was very easy to work with.

Unexpected Studio in Ballard

  • 4 of 5

We didn't know what to expect when we reserved this place. We had never been to Seattle and had only heard the name Ballard in brief passing, but when we arrived we were blown away (mostly in good ways, but not all).

First off, the pictures do not do justice to how amazing the inside of this studio is. Clean, comfortable, and has it all (except an oven, but the microwave and stove were enough!). If you're looking for a great place to use as a 'home base' while you explore Seattle and the surrounding areas, all while still cooking the majority of your meals to save money, this place cannot be beat. there is also an electric fireplace that I absolutely loved and use of Netflix! Putting on a standup comedy after coming back from a long day of exploring was really nice.

The reason this received 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the outside and neighborhood. While this is not the fault of the owner, there is little to no privacy outside, cramped almost impossible parking areas (the owner did a great job of somehow creating 3 spots to park, though luckily we never had more than one other car), and constant consturction nearby.


As of September 2016, Ballard is a neighborhood in transition. It's "out with the old in with the new", but it's very much stuck in the middle. You have single family homes surrounded on all sides by three-story apartment style homes (like the one we stayed in), and when I say surrounded I mean on all sides. The roads (though not specific problem to Ballard) are very narrow and only one car can go through at a time, even though it's 2 way traffic. Parking must be a nightmare unless you have a designated spot, as well. There is construction going on along many of the streets and it often caused us to have to wait to leave, or manipulate out of the parking spot in crazy ways.

While these are all things I wish I knew before going, they do NOT take away much from what's inside this amazing apartment, and if I had to do it over again I would.

Enjoyed our stay, very comfortable, clean and convenient to area shopping and local attractions. Will plan on staying here in the future, as our Grand daughter lives three blocks from this location. Mario and his wife are very friendly and informative.

Cute studio apt, so close to bus stop& in a quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here 4 nights and really liked this studio apt. It was so convenient to use the bus to go to downtown Seattle. We even walked and ate in Ballard a couple nights. Close to grocery store, and coffee shops, too.

We only had one minor issue, and we called them & it was taken care of immediately! So, no complaints from us.

If we ever come back, we would definitely stay here again!

Excellent stay and perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of this property on-line look great...however they do not do this studio justice! The studio is spotless, beautiful and perfectly outfitted for a stay.

The location is walking distance to excellent coffee shops, grocery and dining.

If you like to walk for exercise, you will be in heaven. The sights 'just over the hill' are amazing.

I can not say enough good things about this place. My only issue with it is that it is booked all the time!!!!

Thank you for the great stay!

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.
