Ballard 1 bedroom plus loft and AWESOME lovingly repurposed 25' Airstream trailer. A queen in the trailer, a king in the loft, queen in the main bedroom, and a queen sofa bed - only bath is off the main floor bedroom. This is the second and third floor of a 1901 duplex.

****Dec 7th, 2015. There is currently construction on the home nextdoor which can begin as early as 7:30am and go to 4:30pm Most of the the noisy work is done and this unit is minimally affected by sounds. I would say if you are planning on booking a stay during the week and are a day sleeper just to be aware of the construction but again it's on the other side of the house and this unit is not very affected by it.

Just 6 blocks from Market street, you'll be a perfect quiet distance from all Market street and old Ballard has to offer. 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). 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 utilizing the loft but it would be best if everyone is family or well acquainted as the only bathroom is off the lower bedroom, with an additional toilet in the trailer. I use high quality linens and bedding is triple sheeted or duvet covers used and laundered after every guest. There is only the loft with carpets but beds or constantly inspected to insure there are not unwanted guests (bedbugs) left behind. 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. Satellite television in the living area, main floor bedroom, loft and airstream. There is a key ring by the back door that has the back door and trailer key on it. The new paint on the back door seems to make it stick a bit so currently it's easier to just use the deadbolt on the back door.

I am on the property often working in the yard or cleaning. If I am not there you will have a key code and there is a small book with notes about the house, neighborhood and local activities. I am typically always available via phone, text or email if you have any questions, concerns or needs. I will typically use the last four digits of the phone number listed on your airbnb profile as your entry code. Monthly rental includes weekly maid service.

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!

There is a dedicated parking spot in the back off the alley and it is 2 blocks from 15th Ave and a D-line RapidRide stop taking you right to the University or downtown.

This is an old home and sound travels easily. I want your stay to be pleasant and I realize you may be on holiday but I would ask that you just be respectful of the downstairs folks. Typically it seems the most transference of sound comes in the stairwell and in the bathroom. I put a door at the top of the stairs to try and limit the noise pollution a little bit and then when in the bathroom you may want to not have that deep, cathartic, private conversation with a loved one as it will not be that private :) The rest of the house is fine but for some reason those areas just seem to be amplified!

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

There is a dedicated parking spot in the back off the alley, if it's managed right shared with the downstairs unit you can park 4 cars in the back if two park in tandem next to my RV that is kept there. We are 2 blocks from 15th Ave and a D-line RapidRide stop taking you right to the University or downtown.

A lab director, a stay at home dad, two teenagers and a cocker spaniel living the suburban dream! We love to entertain and originally started hosting with Airbnb because we had a medical rep that would call on my partner 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. 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 town home in Kirkland. We specialize in intern stays in the summer and are investigating boarding house concepts.
