There is incredible light in this relaxing oasis.
It's true! This large top-floor apartment, with separate access up a short flight of stairs, is awash in light. It has great features including 2 loveable cats, (I'll take care of them, you just need to be cat people and be ok with them wanting a pet or two while you're here) a huge bathroom with a claw foot tub, vintage furniture, a full size kitchen and lots of character. I'll provide you with delicious baked goods the morning of your arrival and also local coffee and tea for you to enjoy.
My quiet neighborhood location is close to bus routes, the Burke Gilman bike trail and is just a 20 minute walk to downtown Ballard. There you'll find fabulous bars and restaurants, a wonderful Sunday farmers market, our cinema, the library and much more. To the east is Fremont which boasts everything from a statue of Lenin to our very own troll.
From my house you'll be close to all the Ballard dining and new neighborhood restaurants and shops that seem to pop up daily. Also Fremont which has a statue of Lenin and our Troll, and plenty more fun outing choices. Our zoo is nearby in the Greenwood neighborhood.
There is a bus that goes downtown, the 28, and also the 44 which heads over to the U district. Probably others too but these are the ones I use most often.
No smoking please. No shoes in the house either. I provide slippers for your use.
We live 30 miles south of Seattle, but because we had a weekend conference to attend, decided not to make a long traffic filled commute home each morning and eve so instead stay close to where the conference was being held.
This is what brought us to Diana charming Ballard home.
And that it was.
It had all the Character we love about Ballard and is close to everything we possibly wanted, good restaurants, a large grocery store and the quirky wonderfulness that truly makes Freemont the center of the universe.
Susan was a lovely host and so accomidating to our every need.
The bed was incredibly comfortable and we got a very good night sleep as a result of it.
Our stay say a pleasure!
A great place for a stay in Seattle and truly sun drenched, Susan was a great host. Her place was above us and she checked in on us to make sure everything was okay and gave us plenty of privacy. A lovely slice of cake, all the tea you could want, and a warm comfortable place In a quiet part of town. We found it easier to cab, uber everywhere which was fine to us. Average about 10-13 bucks downtown. Would definitely recommend this for anybody looking to stay in Seattle that is not a crazy late night partier.
Thank you Susan! The apartment was lovely. And sun drenched indeed!
Thank you for the wonderful hospitality. I will definitely try to stay again when I'm back in Seattle.
Susan contacted us ahead of time with suggestions about activities and to make sure we were all set with picking up the key. The apartment was as advertised and perfect for our needs. We appreciated the baked goods and would return if we visit Seattle again.
Susan and her place were great! Susan went above and beyond to make sure everything went smoothly on our trip and we were happy. The apartment was amazing... even better than the pictures portray. The whole experience made our trip to Seattle great. Would highly recommend
This was my first experience with airbnb and I have to say, I am now a fan! Susan, thank you so much for making this such a great trip. Susan was friendly and responsive to my texts or calls if I needed anything. Her home was beautiful and the location was fabulous!
