Second floor of a duplex w/ loft and a 25' Airstream. king in loft, queen - trailer, queen sofa bed, only full bath is on-suite to the main bedroom with queen.

The space
This is the second and third floor of a 1900 duplex with it's own entrance. Just 5 blocks from Market street, you'll be a perfect quiet distance from Market street and the Ballard Entertainment district. 2 blocks from 15th Ave and a D-line RapidRide stop so it's very accessible to bus-lines as well as a quick drive into downtown and blocks from all of the restaurants, nightlife and shops Ballard has to offer. Just 20 - 35 minutes to the airport by car. Large equipped kitchen with washer and dryer. Apartment is approx 500 sq feet on the first level (which is the 2nd floor of the building first floor has a separate entrance and is another listing) with another 200 square feet in the loft area (3rd floor). There is a unit below this one so while there is a lot of private sleeping options it’s not a party space.

A lot like tiny house living but spacious at the same time. Then another 200 plus square feet in the Airstream in the back yard. The large windows provide great light and give the unit a very open feel. Vented skylights keep the loft and entire space extremely comfortable during the summer. 8 can sleep here two to a bed utilizing the loft but it would be best if everyone is family or well acquainted as the only bathroom is off the bedroom, with an additional toilet in the trailer. The toilet in the Airstream is functional and at some point will have a shower and sink installed. Currently it's just the toilet partitioned from the space by a frosted glass wall.

I use high quality linens and bedding is triple sheeted or duvet covers used and laundered after every guest. Kid & pet friendly but the loft does not have a railing around it so young children would need to be watched closely, my son lived in this space until he was 3 and we haven't had a fall yet. There is not a railing around it as it's a hip roof and people negotiate the loft ladder differently and a railing feels like it would be more of a trip hazard as you're negotiating the upper space. There is just one bathroom and not a huge amount of communal space so I don't ever want to misrepresent the property and want to make sure people understand the layout so please check out the floor plan in the pictures.

Wireless internet reaches all throughout house and airstream. Antenna digital television and smart TVs in the living and sleeping areas. There is a key ring by the back door that has the back door and trailer key on it.

When booking this listing can you please include in your initial message that "I understand the layout". It's such a great space but only if you understand its Bohemian nuances.

Where you’ll be

Seattle, Washington, United States

Ballard is an old Norwegian fishing village 6 miles north of Downtown. Just a short walk away is Market street and old Ballard with it's great Sunday Farmers Market and all it's shops, restaurants and nightlife. The Locks and Dam, fish ladder, Norwegian Heritage Center as well as Golden Gardens Beach access is just a short walk away.

On 24th Avenue and 58th street is Scooter's probably the best burger stand you will ever eat at. Double Cheese burger with grilled onions and fried mushrooms is my go to!

Near market and 20th Ave is a great dive bar Golden City which also happens to be a great place for Chinese and better yet THEY DELIVER!

We keep a list of the top 100 restaurants as well as local microbreweries in the house.

We own and operate Olympic Microscope and Laboratory Service. I along with my trusty Innkeeper Charlotte run the Ballard Bunkhouse which we started almost 10 years ago. We love to entertain and originally started hosting with Airbnb because we had a medical rep that would call on my husband and we preferred he stayed with us when in town. This typically meant a hotel room somewhere would have been paid for and sat empty….We set up an account so we could be his hotel and he wouldn’t have to drive after a night of “entertaining”. We enjoyed Airbnb so much that we kept the listing up to meet others. We now host at our Ballard Duplex as well as a suite in our home. We specialize in intern stays at our home in the summer and housing all the cruise ship and wedding parties that come our way May - Sept. Life motto is "Life is too short to be a stick in the mud"
