Just remodeled with bamboo floors, an artist’s attention to detail, and a seasoned traveler’s appreciation of comfort, this complete one-bedroom apartment with its own entrance is the perfect home base when visiting Seattle. In the charming, family-friendly Ballard/Phinney neighborhood, you’ll be within walking distance of the shops and restaurants of Phinney Ridge, and just a short drive to downtown Ballard, Green Lake, the Woodland Park Zoo, and much more. Also close to two bus lines, walk four short blocks to catch an express bus downtown.
The apartment is on the basement level of a classic Ballard bungalow with a lovely garden out front and a porch you’re welcome to use. You’ll find: new appliances and all the kitchenware you’ll need, fabulous modern tile work in the bathroom, a queen bed, 32-inch HDTV with cable, ipod docking station, wi-fi, washer/dryer, and off-street parking.
The immediate neighborhood features some of the finest coffee shops and eateries in the North End. Within walking distance are Bambino's (coffee shop), The Barking Dog (pub and eatery), Stumbling Goat (Northwest cuisine), Honore (French bakery), and many more. The Phinney and Ballard Farmer's Markets are a short stroll away, and for the exercise enthusiast Green Lake, the Burke-Gilman bike trail, and the Woodland Park and Zoo beckon. For music lovers, The Tractor Tavern, the Sunset, and a host of others in downtown Ballard, and in Fremont there's great entertainment within a 5-minute drive.
No smoking on property, no pets.
To keep costs down for you it is expected that you do the daily and weekly cleaning. If you're wanting cleaning and linen service provided during the stay it costs an additional $20. for each cleaning service. Requested additional cleaning service during your stay includes change of linens, cleaning bathroom, kitchen and the floors .
There is a cleaning fee of $40 that applies to all stays.
The ceilings in the apartment are lower than standard height so this would not work well for very tall people. We had a tenant for a year who was 6'1" and he was fine with the height.
Weekly rates do not apply during the summer season. Depending on our next bookings we can be flexible with check in and check out times.
For stays longer than a week we will need access to the washing machine and dryer at a mutually agreeable time once a week for three loads of wash.
Phinney Oasis is exactly as as advertised and more. It is welcoming and feels very much like home. Many of Kim and Stewart's recommendations are within walking distance and are definitely worth checking out. Additionally a few bus stops are quite close and make travel to other neighborhoods a breeze. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a laid back location when staying in the Seattle area.
The place was everything n more than what they describe to be! It was homely, cosy and within walking distance to almost everything! Will stay here again if I visit!
Your place was the perfect place for us to stay for the week we were in Seattle. We came and went from your neighborhood with ease any time of the day or evening whether we were there for a nap or for a night's rest. The entire apartment was fully appointed for comfort and convenience. We especially appreciated the nice touches of a heated (on a timer) bathroom floor while we were there, and a ceramic panel in the living area that provided us with radiant and convective heat for our early morning activities. We intend to recommend your place highly to any of our friends or acquaintances planning a trip to Seattle. Your B&B was the first AirB&B we've tried, and we've come away with a very favorable impression of both your place and the whole system. Many thanks!
It was perfect! Great location and comfortable, spacious accommodations.
They had tons of cooking utensils and supplies, which made it great for cooking meals at home.
We will definitely stay here again!
The apartment was clean, comfortable and nice and cool during the extremely hot weather. Kim and Stewart are friendly and helpful.
The Oasis proved to be an excellent place to stay on our trip to Seattle. The unit was well-appointed, spotless upon arrival and comfortable throughout. The neighborhood is also, I think, perfectly located for those who want to explore the neighborhoods north of Lake Union. And on top of that, Kim and Stewart were such wonderfully pleasant hosts. If you're traveling to Seattle and the Phinney Oasis is available, your choice of where to stay should definitely be an easy one.
Kim's apartment was perfect for our recent trip to Seattle. It had all of the amenities we needed: full kitchen, living and eating areas, incredibly comfortable bed and as a bonus - a washer and dryer. It was well located for my walks around Green Lake with my daughter and easy to access downtown and the other site we visited. It was spotlessly clean and quiet - I would definitely recommend it.
About the Host, Kim
My roots are in Alaska, with many family members still living and working up there. I love to hike, ski, mountain bike, kayak, dig in the dirt, eat good food, and travel. My husband is a furniture designer whose workshop is located in the "Center of the Universe" (Fremont!) and is now the designated grill master with his specialty; wild Alaskan Salmon caught by our son! Our other son was instrumental in getting this apartment up and running. Both occasionally come by for a few days at a time.
We also have a karelian bear dog that is now older than me in dog years. She is sweet, mellow, and loves a hello. She lives outside during the days and when we are home joins us upstairs. She often takes doggy vacations with our son for a few days or longer that she absolutely loves.
I spend my winter months surrounded by sweet, loving 6, 7, and 8 year olds teaching them to read and love books!
We're happy to share our knowledge of Seattle and surroundings. We can send you off on some great trips culled from our many years of exploring the Northwest!
