About this listing

This large daylight basement 1 BDRM MIL apartment is a street level walk up with its own private entrance. I live upstairs and work from home as a freelance photographer/videographer and designer. When I travel, I host *quiet* guests upstairs, too.

If you don't know what you'd do without a TV, oven or a microwave, I'm sorry, but this isn't the place for you. But for those who appreciate quiet quality with a bit of a Ace Hotel meets thrift store chic aesthetic, you will feel right at home.

If you like to wake to the sound of chirping birds and enjoy charming old school comforts with access to great local delis, bars restaurants and shops, you'll enjoy staying here!

Interaction with Guests

I like to give my guests lots of space to have their own autonomous experience, so interactions with my guests are usually kept to check in and check out. However, I'm happy to join for a local cocktail or engage more with guests if I'm around and they are up for it. I find most just want to be left alone to experience Seattle on their own, and since I work a lot, that works pretty well for everyone.

The Neighborhood

The apartment is located in the lovely and quiet area of Whittier Heights in Ballard, situated between three great neighborhoods: downtown Ballard, Phinney Ridge and Greenwood and close to Fremont. The apartment is within a lovely stroll to award winning restaurants, bars, cafes, bakeries and delis on 70th Street and 65th Street.

I am four blocks from Delancey's (amazing pizza), Essex, The Fat Hen and Honore Bakery. All voted top restaurants and bars. You can even take cooking classes at the Pantry at Delancey (but you must book early because they sell out!). It is a quick jaunt by bike or car to the Ballard Market (a really great grocery store), Safeway and Trader Joe's. Greenlake is a mile away. If you are a runner, walker or blader, you'll probably want to check it out! The Woodland Park Zoo is also close by and Discovery Park and Golden Gardens are also exquisite places to check out and not a far drive.

Getting Around

There is free street parking directly out front. Car-2-Go, Uber and Lyft are also a popular options in Seattle. I am 4 blocks to the #28 bus and about 6 locks from the Rapid Ride D line. Both buses go downtown.

Other Things to Note

Local sales tax (9.5%) has been included in the nightly rate.

L shaped bedroom. Big closet with lots of hanging space. The bed nest is snug like a hug. That's why I call it a bed nest.
