John and Audrey's home is the perfect place to stay. The house is warm and inviting, and we just loved everything about it. The decor was my personal favorite, from the oh so cool baby blue painted piano to the long rustic yet modern wooden benches along the table that easily sat our party of 8 for meals. The surrounding neighborhood of Ballard is so cute and is full of cool little shops and restaurants. Highly recommend their beautiful home!!
We loved staying at John and Audrey's beautiful home. The listing is accurate, the place as pictured, and the pricing makes sense. It is in an excellent location (easy walk to Ballard, a bit longer but totally doable walk to Golden Gardens) with a nice view of the water from the master balcony and very clean and comfortable (great bed!). And it has good energy! Which is great. My husband and I really enjoyed being so close to Ballard's bustling (and fantastic) restaurants, etc., and appreciated John's restaurant recommendations. Check in/check out instructions were easy and totally reasonable. We only stayed two nights but would absolutely come back!
Beautiful Home. Had a lot of fun staying there. Everything we needed was available to us. Some of the other reviews mentioned the train being quiet, and this did not seem to be the case. With the house having no AC, we slept with the windows open the first night. The trains go by throughout the night and were quite loud, even with the windows closed. Really glad we chose the house, but wish the train noise wasn't so loud. Thanks!
PROS: Very nice home, well accommodated, with responsive and pleasant hosts! We needed three bedrooms and a hotel would have been expensive and separated our family so having a great place that we could all stay together at an affordable price in a hip neighborhood really made our weekend :)
CONS: I love trains so it was ok for me, however, they do run periodically near the neighborhood during the day/night so for those sensitive to noise this may be something to think about.
John and his were wife we're perfect host. Their home was lovely, spacious and clean. I fell in love with neighborhood. Lots of beautiful flowers and flowering trees, close to some of the restaurants, movie theatre, cools shops and great views. Highly recommended!
