The Space

Enjoy your own private mini-home while exploring Seattle. Conveniently located just blocks from downtown Ballard and an easy 15 minute bus ride from downtown, this quaint yet roomy space is perfect for out of town guests and vacationers.

The 250 square foot space enjoys its own deck space and hot tub. French doors fully open to the deck to create an indoor/outdoor great room with plenty of outdoor seating.

It has a mini kitchen with a 2-burner stove with a mini fridge, microwave, sink and kitchen essentials. This includes cooking supplies like pans, plates, oil, salt and pepper etc. We also have a Keirig Coffee Maker with a generous supply of K-Cups.

The newly remodeled bath includes a shower with on-demand water. There is a storage closet in the bath for clothes and extra linens. If you are staying longer than three days, I will provide fresh towels and linens for you upon request.

The bedroom loft is cozy and features a double size bed (new memory foam mattress in 2015). The ladder up to the loft is custom-made to retract from the wall for easy access. When it is not in use, it slides flush to the wall to allow for more room in the living space. If you are very tall, the loft might seem a bit tight (fyi).

There is a couch which allows for an extra person to sleep in the unit if you wish. I also have a portable crib that you are welcome to use. Just let me know. I'm pretty strict about maxing out at 3 guests. Children under 8 are not allowed in the loft area for safety-sake.

This rental Includes cable tv and access to wireless Internet.

The overall look and feel of the space is what I call, "Modern Nautical". Ballard is an old fishing town that has become the culinary hot spot of Seattle. The colors and lighting fixtures give homage to Ballard's history. There is plenty of free off-street parking and access to one of the best neighborhoods in Seattle is just a short walk away!

There are quite a few quick service/family run (no chains) restaurants within a block from the house along with a great fruit stand and espresso shop. Grocery and drug stores are within 5-7 blocks away. The bus stop to a main arterial is a 1/2 block away. A great bakery is only 2 blocks away. This is a great location for those of you vacationing without a rental car. Pretty much anything you need is less than a 10-15 minute walk away. Even if you have a rental car, you can leave it parked and just explore all the fun stuff in Ballard!

Oh, and did I mention the peek a boo views of Mt. Rainier and downtown from the deck?

We look forward to meeting you!

Interaction with Guests

I'm pretty hands off. I try meet you on your first day to show you around the mini home. After that, you may see me coming and going but I prefer to leave the amount of interaction to you.

I'm very friendly and happy to chat or answer questions. But, I simply step back and gauge each person's desire for interaction individually.

I live in the main house and work from home so if there are any issues, I'm fairly easy to find. :)

Safe Travels!

The Neighborhood

Ballard is a great neighborhood with tons of bars and little restaurants. Just ask me and I'm happy to share some of my faves.

Getting Around

The bus-stop is a 1/2 block away.

This is the "D" line which leads North & South to downtown (in about 15-20 minute ride).

House Rules

Please do not smoke inside home.

Be mindful of the neighbors after 10.

Children must be supervised while using the hot tub.

No children under 8 in the loft bed area.

I own a cat who lives inside my house. There are also two very shy neighborhood cats who hang out on the deck. Just an FYI.

Do not run the shower and microwave/blow dryer at the same time. The on-demand hot water system draws a great deal of energy and together could blow the circuit.

Enjoy yourself and please give me suggestions on how we can improve the space for future guests!
