What a great place to stay in Seattle. The three of us had a good time in Ballard! Patti and Benson made us feel very welcome on our first ever visit to Seattle with a nice chat in the garden, with practical info on the environment, the city, public transport etc. The house was very clean, with beautiful art all around. A pleasure to see and to live in. The house is located in a small, quiet street with amble space for parking at the back of the house. Description and pictures on the website give a very good image of the house, rooms and it surroundings. Certainly a place we would recommend.
Patti was great to work with (we didn't get to meet Benson). She met us at the house at the agreed upon time and made us feel welcome. It's a 100-year old house so bedrooms are upstairs and the bathroom is on the first floor which could be a challenge for some people. The bathroom was my favorite, nicely remodeled and filled with artwork. The house is half a block from the bus stop and a block and a half from a nice grocery store. It's a great location. We rode the bus to Pike Market and spent the morning there. After a nap, it was a short drive to the ship locks and Ray's Café for dinner.
Patti was an exceptional host... She gave us lots of advice. House artist with a great soul. Exhibition of the work of Patti in the House : fantastic... Place very clean, near shopping and downtown Seattle. We strongly recommend.
Nous avons passé un très bon moment au studio. Patti et Benson sont des gens très charmants. Le logement correspond exactement à la description. Le quartier est paisible avec de nombreux restaurants et magasins accessibles à pied.
It was a very nice stay in Pattis house. Quite neighborhood and only 30 mitutes from down town. also the bus connection to Seattle is quick and easy to manage.
So we really enjoyed our time
Patti is a lovely host. I enjoyed the historic house, and it was convenient to public transportation (I didn't have a car). I wasn't there long enough to take advantage of all the amenities (like the kitchen), but it certainly was a great place to stay.
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.
