An absolutely beautiful home in a great location. It's light filled and spacious with a gorgeous kitchen and a layout that encourages lounging. We are former Seattle-ites who were in town for a weekend. It was great to be located near some of our favorite places, a few minutes from downtown Ballard as well as Golden Gardens and the Ballard Locks. The Sunday farmers market in the neighborhood is delightful. Great food in the area includes THE best pastries in the city at Cafe Besalu, also: La Carta de Oaxaca, The Walrus and the Carpenter, Bastille, Volterra, señor moose. Delicious quick options include Red Mill Burgers and Pho Than Brothers. Although the food isn't great, you also can't beat the deck at Rays Boathouse at sunset. If you want to see neighborhoody Seattle you could do no better, you can occupy yourself for several days and never go more than a few miles.
Thanks for letting us stay in your delightful home!
This is a beautiful home in the great neighborhood of Ballard. We came into Seattle on the train and were able to easily access the neighborhood and also head downtown via public transportation. Having a spacious residence to use as "home base" throughout the weekend made for a relaxing trip.
John has a great place in the charming and cool Ballard neighborhood. The house is walking distance to great bars, restaurants and eclectic shops. Staying at John's place afforded us the relaxing setting of a quiet neighborhood but the close proximity to downtown Seattle. Would definitely recommend staying here.
The house was beautiful and spacious, decorated with plenty of Christmas cheer. The neighborhood is wonderful and close to many restaurants, cafes, and bus stops. Our family enjoyed the trip and look forward to returning.
This is a great house. All new and beautifully done. It's the kind of place you want to hang out in. But the location is also great, because you're right near the water, and right near Ballard. John knows just what to recommend in Ballard. If you stay at this lovely house, you seriously need to go to The Walrus & Carpenter--killer oysters and great sea food. Sit up at the raw bar and talk to the oyster shuckers while you eat. We also had dinner at Bastille, a French Restaurant--one of the few places in North America that serves Boudin Noir, if you are so inclined. They too did a solid job.
John, made everything very simple, and stayed in easy communication.
This is a beautiful house in a nice neighborhood. We stayed here to attend the Bumpershoot and see some of the Seattle area. You'll probably have to use some form of transportation to get around, and there's a public bus stop nearby if you don't want to deal with personal driving in the city. Light sleepers should beware that the house is next to a railroad track and has runs periodically through the night.. The layout of the house is outstanding and the kitchen was simply delightful. The master bedroom and shower/whirlpool will spoil one. All in all, it was a delight to stay here. The host was very quick to answer any questions we had.
The house is gorgeous, with all the comforts of home. It's every bit as beautiful as it looks in the photos. John and Audrey were wonderful hosts and showed us around before they left on their vacation and we immediately felt at home when we moved in. The neighborhood is great with easy walking into Ballard, but out of things enough that it's quiet and has easy parking. .
