About This Listing
At the beginning of August, 2015, ownership/management of this unit is changing. Please book at the new listing....https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/6646843. Thanks!
This cozy one-bedroom flat is one unit of a newly-renovated duplex (built in 1905!) in the heart of north Seattle's vibrant Ballard neighborhood. There is ample free and unrestricted parking on our street, and usually right in front of the house. At most, you'll have to walk 1/2 block.
This small, quaint unit is big in character, with all the conveniences of a hotel room and more: soaring ceilings in every room; full spacious kitchen with a full-sized fridge, oven and range, microwave, toaster, and coffee maker, all necessary dishes and silverware; a bar and bar stools for dining; a living area that can sleep 2 on a fold-out sofabed; a separate bedroom with queen-size bed and all necessary linens; free Wi-Fi; and HD TV with Netflix and an HD antenna. The powerful electric heaters keep each room cozy in the winter.
What a location! Although we’re on a quiet residential street, we’re only 10 blocks from the hip and happening restaurants, bars, and music venues of old Ballard Avenue - plus a sweet year-'round farmers' market. We're two blocks from bustling Ballard Market, where you can pick up prepared greens, soups, and pasta by the pound along with a 6-pack of local beer. Safeway is only one block farther. In six blocks, you’ll find yourself at the Ballard Library or the Majestic Bay Movie Theaters. If you’re looking to have a picnic or let the kiddies play, a four-block walk will bring you to the Gilman playground and play fields. Our Walk Score is 85 - Very Walkable!
Do you enjoy urban hiking? We’re less than two miles from some of Seattle's most beautiful destinations: Woodland Park Zoo, the top of Phinney Ridge, Chittenden Locks, the hearts of Fremont and Wallingford, and the Green Lake walking trail. Golden Gardens beach park, Gasworks Park, and the top of Queen Anne are also nearby. If you really enjoy urban hiking, Seattle Center and Pike Place Market are both within a 5-mile radius of the property.
There are – count ‘em - six local breweries within walking distance (with another in Fremont), along with countless restaurants. Check out the My Ballard blog and select “Restaurants” for a clickable list.
We could go on and on, but we’ll leave it at this: in about half a mile, hop on the Burke Gilman hiking and biking trail, and ride through U-Dub and all the way around Lake Washington. Or...do as the locals do: catch the city bus and arrive in the heart of downtown Seattle in 22 minutes flat.
Small, well-behaved pets are OK, though the large backyard is not fully fenced. Please let us know if you will be bringing a pet.
There is a $45 cleaning fee per stay. This will be added automatically when you make your reservation.
- No smoking at the flat..
- Out of respect for those living next door, please be as quiet as possible after 9pm.
Lovely space with all the basic accommodations. After traveling it was wonderful to have a washer and dryer at our disposal. The best part about this place though was the location. 10 minutes from Golden Gardens(amazing beach), 13 minutes from Pike Place Market, 20 minutes from the airport, etc. Kevin and Monica responded to all of our questions via text immediately and left lots of great recommendations on local restaurants and parks.
Welcoming spot just off Market St in Seattle. Quiet neighborhood with good food and drink options on Ballard and the Center of the Universe(Fremont). Close to a loop trail at Green Lake and local parks. Kevin and Monica have a nice flat with all the basics. Easy access and private. Enjoyed my visit and comfy bed.
I really enjoyed my 2 1/2 weeks in Ballard at Kevin and Monica's apartment! It had everything I needed including a full kitchen, bathroom, living room, separate bedroom and adjacent laundry room. Kevin and Monica made my arrival easy and were very responsive to the couple of questions I had - getting back to me within minutes of my email to them. The charming surrounding neighborhood was great for my morning walks and the apartment is within a few blocks of the Ballard Market and not far from downtown restaurants and coffee shops etc. Great place to stay in Ballard!
Our second stay at Kevin and Monicas's was just as nice as the first! Ballard is such a great neighborhood and puts you close to everything the city has to offer.

About the Host, Kevin And Monica
We're a couple of laid-back, former Peace Corps sweethearts. Now, we both teach for Seattle-area Community Colleges, spend time with our young son and our little dog at Greenlake, ride our bikes all over our beautiful city and beyond, and continue to travel whenever we can. We're happy to meet visitors and help out with recommendations of tourist attractions, restaurants, bike routes, etc.!
