The location was absolutely amazing if you want to be in Ballard. It is a very easy walk down to the main thoroughfare where all the restaurants, shops and bars are located. Patti is an excellent host. She made sure I had everything I needed and is nearby if you need anything during your stay. The house is beautiful and comfortable. One thing to keep in mind for some guests is that the only restroom is downstairs, but you will be sleeping upstairs. This isn't a problem for me, but for some people it might be an issue. I highly recommend this host, and this rental. I would stay here again.
This is our second stay with Patti and Benson, and just like the first it was exemplary. Patti and Benson were accommodating, kind and so helpful. Their place is beautiful, walking distance to everything we wanted to visit in Ballard and filled with gorgeous art. They truly go out of their way to make your trip perfect without ever feeling intrusive. We can't wait to stay with them again soon!
Patti and Benson were wonderful hosts! From check-in to check-out, they were always friendly and gave the best suggestions on local food and different neighborhood attractions. The house is filled with their own artwork, which adds an even more personal touch. Because they live in the house directly behind, we often exchanged "good morning's" on our way to grab breakfast and explore. To say this house and it's hosts are welcoming would truly be an understatement. I highly suggest! Nestled in Ballard, it's also quite convenient as everything is walking distance.
A most wonderful experience: great location, easy transport to downtown and the airport and shopping near by.
Thanks! Nice stay at your studio and look forward to our next visit.....easy visit and comfortable.
Wonderful hosts, only saw Benson briefly but did speak with Patti a few times during the visit. Beautiful home in a quiet neighborhood, walking distance to a public garden and the locks as well as multiple places to eat. Would definitely stay here again when in the area.
As a return guest, I am happy to announce it was delightful as the last time I stayed at the artist's studio. Thank you Patti & Benson for making me feel right at home.
