As little or as much as the guests desire. Since they have a totally private apartment, many guests prefer to relax there. The hosts are always available to answer questions, help with problems or just chat with a cup of tea or a glass of wine.
It is a quiet residential neighborhood with single houses, yet close to parks, grocery stores, the main street with restaurants etc.
Yes, one block from the guestsuite is the #28 bus which takes you to downtown Seattle in 25 minutes. Another bus, five blocks away, takes one to the University of Washington and ultimately downtown.
The hostess has more than 30 years of experience hosting guests from around the world, is herself widely travelled and understands what a guests needs.
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.
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.
This was our first stay with AirBnB and we are very glad that we chose to stay at the Ballard Guestsuite. With over 30 years of experience, Irmgard clearly understands and offers what her guests want: service, privacy and European style hospitality!
We appreciated the level of attention and detail that she provided from our initial email communication to our warm welcome in person. Irmgard is a most gracious hostess who made sure that our stay with her was very enjoyable. It's no surprise that she has many repeat visitors!
Tha Ballard Guestsuite is in a very convenient location in an historic neighborhood and made an excellent home base for our time visiting with friends. This is a cozy and comfortable apartment that we are hoping to return to next time for a much longer stay!
Irmgard is a wonderful hostess. Beautiful house in a great part of town. She was very clean and provided us directions and travel information. If we come back for a visit, we will definitely stay here, highly recommended.
