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. Because of the hardwoods above, you might occasionally hear the kitty playing upstairs. He's not very graceful.
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!
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 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.
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.
Local sales tax (9.5%) has been included in the nightly rate.

My second visit to Shannon's revealed to me the most beautiful Camellia in Ballard, right out back! And Shannon is an active neighborhood gardener, a responsive, accommodating hostess who offers an ideal, quiet spot central to everything in Ballard. She offered to send me something I inadvertently left behind and diligently looked for something I thought I left behind but ultimately found I didn't. Very pleasant experience with Shannon both times I stayed there and if and when the occasion arises again to stay in the area, I'll know where to look for ease, comfort, convenience, cost-effective, cozy, clean, quiet digs. You should try it too!
This was my second stay with Shannon; I came bqck for the ease, central location, comfort, convenience and the great entertainment available in the (website hidden). all the classic books you've wanted to read but might not have gotten too yet, and while you're perusing them, you can nibble on the chocolate bonbons or ginger chews (best variety) that Shannon provides and there is a book of drawing challenges so you can leave a sample of your artistic aspiration there. Finally, when you have to sleep, the silky soft sheets will tempt you to float away...way past your wake up call. So, even if you have nothing special to do in Ballard, you can do something special staying right here. Try it and you'll be surprised when you receive your receipt after your stay-HA! Mystery treat.
Shannon"s place is awesome, we didn't want to leave. Great location, great amenities, completely private. As others have said, it is the little touches Shannon leaves for her guests that make the experience so wonderful. Also try the High Life restaurant for brunch or dinner- ask for Travis he is a great waiter. Very enjoyable experience.
It was my third stay at Shannon's place and I plan to stay there again on future work trips. It is super comfortable, big, in a nice neighborhood, etc. All the positive reviews people give the place are true. Highly recommended.
Shannon & her apartment were great. The apartment was spacious, stylish and immaculate. Shannon left treats that were appreciated, and check-in & check-out were smooth.
Shannon's place is honestly the best Airbnb I have ever stayed at. I have used Airbnb several times when I travel for work and this was by far the most comfortable and accommodating. I will try and stay here every visit to Seattle! Thanks Shannon!
What a great stay. Shannon made it super easy to coordinate and made us feel right at home. The place was clean and cozy, with some goodies set out for us; even a bottle of champagne in the fridge for New Year's! We had a wonderful time staying there and it was so close to the bus lines for easy travel. I would recommend this place again and again.
I didn't stay here; my daughter did when she visited from CA with her two teenagers. She loved it. It was cozy and quiet and most comfortable. A haven for her.
My husband and I visited Seattle for a few days before Christmas and we had a great time at Shannon's suite. It was absolutely perfect. The place was super clean, cozy and stocked with everything you would need in order to have a great stay. I especially loved that there was no t.v. but lots of games to play.
Ballard is an awesome area, lots of great places to eat, shop and just peruse in general. Everything was so close, ample parking and I would highly recommend staying here if you are looking for a unique place to visit in Seattle. Thank you Shannon!
A great place in a great neighborhood. Shannon took care with certain details in her place (coffee, decoration) and it really made the stay better than nice. Definitely would stay here again if I return to Seattle!
