Patti and Benson's home is a historic and artistic delight in the midst of a wonderful Ballard neighborhood. The listing was quite accurate and Patti even made sure we knew that the bedrooms were upstairs and the bathroom downstairs. Patti gave us a warm welcome to her simple and tastefully decorated and charming 100 year old home/studio. The beds were comfy - the linens and towels lovely. There is even off street parking and a short walk to some of Ballard's best coffee and bakeries .
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house is pristine and beautiful with a fabulous, central location within walking distance to (website hidden) - the shower is awesome!
Thanks much to Patti and Benson - we'll be back.
The aesthetic at the house is lovely and peaceful. We enjoyed the quiet stay there and felt very comfortable. It's also just a short walk to great restaurants and coffee shops like La Isla and Hot Cakes.
Great stay at Ballard Artist's Studio! Patti Shaw, our host, was welcoming and sweet, and her art work is exquisite. It surrounds you in this beautifully quaint, coastal cottage. The simplicity of the design and the decor helps create a calm and casual atmosphere, a perfect getaway. Tremendous neighborhood with a wonderful stretch of shops and restaurants in Ballard. Coffee everywhere. Downtown Seattle just minutes away. Thank you, Patti and Benson! We'll be back someday.
This was such an easy airbnb experience! Patti was so helpful and great upon check-in, and then I had everything I needed: full run of the kitchen, clean bathroom, beautiful bedroom. I had absolutely zero complaints or concerns while staying there, the place is beautiful, clean, quiet, and walking distance to all the shops, restaurants, bars and coffee places in Ballard. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a place to stay in Ballard, especially if you need a 2 bedroom place, the home is enormous and you will generally have the whole place to yourself.
Great stay - really nice and characterful house a very short from bars and restaurants of Ballard. Very clean and comfortable, and quiet at night on this residential street. Patti was flexible and hospitable as a host. Would stay again :-)
We LOVE staying at Patti and Benson's lovely airbnb. It is a perfect location for our twice a year event. AND we love the beautiful old home with it's nooks and crannies and living with Patti's super art!
I love the bedrooms and EVERYTHING is super clean. YAY!!!!
Having a kitchen is a huge plus.
They are both very welcoming and friendly.
This was our 4th or 5th stay with them and we will do it again.
What a great time we had last weekend.
Thank you so much!
