This large, newly renovated apartment has lots of natural light and a new private, full bathroom. It is well insulated to stay cool in the summer, warm in the winter. The space has all the conveniences of a hotel room. You have a private entrance, wifi, microwave, toaster, electric kettle and a small frig.along with an assortment of tea, organic coffee, dishes, silverware etc. for you to use. There is a wall mounted HD T.V. with Directtv (two hundred plus channels including HBO).

There is a queen bed and a new couch that converts to a full sized bed. The house has a huge yard and deck you are welcome to enjoy. There are two friendly cats but they stay upstairs.

We live two blocks from Delancy's, a pizza spot that has been nationally recognized, Honore, a great bakery whose crossiants were recently (April 2011) voted the best in Seattle region and the Fat Hen, a new French bistro that is getting wonderful reviews. The Ballard neighborhood has an incredible amount of restaurants and small, independent shops and Downtown Seattle is 5 miles away and a quick, easy bus ride.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • The residence was a perfect fit for our needs, and the price was right. The neighborhood is quiet and near a few fine eateries and coffee shops. It is quite a walk or a bus ride to the heart of the Ballard District, but this is not a drawback. The moderate distance is very manageable and lends to the peaceful setting of Amanda's home.

    The accommodations were clean, well-stocked, very pleasant and just the right fit for two travelers. Amanda was a gracious and generous hostess. She didn't interfere with our stay, but she was available and helpful anytime we needed assistance. We found her to be genuinely friendly and considerate. We would definitely consider staying at her place again.

  • This was a great apartment to stay at. It was comfortable and very private. It has a large bathroom and bedroom. The neighborhood is quiet, but it does offer several very good restaurants within walking distance. We enjoyed our stay!

  • Even nicer the second time. Quiet neighborhood. Enjoyed the welcome note with brownies. The heater was on which made the place cozy on a very rainy day when I arrived.

  • Amanda was very friendly, generous, and accommodating. We arrived after camping and not having laundry service. She arranged her schedule so that we could use the laundry as soon as we arrived. The place was clean and cozy in the perfect neighborhood of Ballard. In addition to the food she provided (fruits, milk, oatmeal), we LOVED the The Fat Hen (breakfast/lunch) and Delancey (dinner), both around the corner. Delancey has some of the best pizza we have ever had! Ballard has a wonderful downtown and there is a bike path that goes right to downtown Seattle from the Ballard Locks. We look forward to our next stay, and would definitely recommend Amanda's place :)

  • Amanda is very thoughtful and friendly. She made us brownies and there was fruit, milk and all kinds of tea inside the room. It was such a beautiful house and area to stay. We stayed there for 2 nights and we enjoyed it a lot! The bus station is close to our house and also the restaurant nearby is very delicious! We will definitely stay in Amanda's house again when we visit Seattle.

  • The listing was as described. It is a very nicely decorated and comfortable studio with a nice sitting area and mini-kitchen in a very nice neighborhood. Kitchen included micro-wave, refrigerator, and supplies for making coffee or tea. Also the hosts were kind enough to leave milk in the refrigerator, fresh fruit, and a couple of home made brownies. The bed was very comfortable and the towels and bathroom were very nice and the host provided shampoo and cream rinse.

  • We had a lovely time at Amanda's. She was very communicative before and during our stay so we felt right at home. We were lucky with weather and enjoyed relaxing in the backyard. You can't beat the restaurants on 70th either.
