The Space

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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Great neighborhood! with ample, easy parking for a good-sized family van loaded with vacation gear. Attention to detail in the apartment made our stay pleasant. Highly recommended. Thank you Kim and Stewart!

  • I have stayed here several times and each time has been great. The place is clean, quiet, comfortable, and convenient to what I need to get done while in Seattle.

    I'd be staying there again later on this summer's trip, but they were booked up for the time I wanted in July. So sad.

  • My boyfriend and I were in town for a UW graduation and stayed at Phinney Oasis for about five nights. We loved it! Kim and Stewart were very gracious hosts and ensured our (very) late check-in was convenient and comfortable. We were also greeted by delicious pastries! The amenities in the apartment exceeded our expectations - we had to work from Seattle during the week and found it very convenient and enjoyable to work from there. If we return to Seattle, we will definitely check back with Phinney Oasis. It was my first Airbnb experience and now I am spoiled!

  • The suite was everything I needed for my stay, and the location was great for access to my work and interesting restaurants.

  • Kim and Stewart were incredible hosts. We made an error on our end in terms of payment, and they went way out of their way to help correct it.

    The Oasis is truly that--it (email hidden) in a great neighborhood.

    Kim and Stewart left breakfast pastries and coffee for the first morning, which was a very welcome gesture.

    I highly recommend the Phinney Oasis! Thanks again, Kim and Stewart.

Reading teacher for Seattle Public Schools and love it!
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!
