  • We very much enjoyed our stay at the Ballard Guestsuite. Irmgard is a wonderful, considerate host, a true hospitality professional! The space is quiet, private and immaculately clean, easy walking distance to transit and the Ballard district. Off-street parking is a plus. Highly recommended!

  • Our stay with Irmgard Castleberry was excellent and she is a very gracious host. The little extra things that she does really makes you feel welcome in her home. The house is very clean and private. Just want to say Thank You Irmgard and we will stay again.

  • I booked a two week stay for my parents who were in Seattle to help my brother and his wife with the new baby. Irmgard's place was close to them and the main shopping area in Ballard. The place was great. She made sure my parents were comfortable and had everything they needed. The suite was warm, had a stocked kitchen and spacious living room. My parents enjoyed their stay

  • Another lovely stay at Irmgard and Ben's Ballard Guestsuite. You will not want for anything. Great location, cozy, plenty of room, and attentive accessible hosts.

    November 2013
  • We highly recommend Irmgard's Ballard Guestsuite.

    The spacious suite included not just a bedroom, but also off-street parking, private entry, living area with TV and office section, well appointed kitchenette and private bath with clean, fluffy towels daily. The queen bed was extremely comfortable with quality linens.

    The safe neighborhood location was convenient to shopping and restaurants, and more importantly, to our son and his family. We appreciated thoughtful touches like the fresh flowers and chocolates. We hope to return again, whenever we next visit Seattle.

  • Gracious Hostess 7 Roomy Apartment-

    The guest suite is a bit old fashioned in terms of furnishings and decor but it is spacious, extremely well equipped and clean. Neighborhood is quiet and safe with parking right at your door. Mrs. Castleberry was the perfect hostess with answers to all of our questions about the neighborhood.
