Wonderful apartment to stay in in Ballard. Quite more than comfortable, as Amanda has taken great care to provide even more amenities than a hotel! She had tea, water, and fresh fruit waiting for us, as well as brownies and wifi. The room and the bathroom are neat and very clean. There were towels and soap there too. The bed and the sofa were very comfortable. The neighborhood was quiet at night and filled with people walking their dogs and kids going to school in the day. Just a 10-15 minute walk from some amazing restaurants such as Delancy and Essex and The Fat Hen. I would 100% recommend staying here. What a gem! Amanda was very responsive to all of our inquiries and responded very quickly to our initial request to book. She's a great host.
Amanda was very friendly and a joy to talk to. Weather great! Bed nice and cozy and all the essentials needed for our overnight stay.
Perfect stay in Ballard. Space was comfy and convenient. Amanda was a great host. Definitely recommend.
Very nice and quiet place. Clean and cozy :) private suite and had a set of keys fr us. definitely recommend.
Everything was perfect and exactly as described. Amanda welcomed me the day of my arrival and made sure I was all set. The neighborhood is great - lot's of cafes, restaurants shops - yet quiet and peaceful, and perfect for walks.
Amanda's place in Ballard was exactly as described—lovely, quiet, and peaceful. There were brownies and fresh fruit waiting for me when I arrived, and I especially enjoyed being able to make a cup of tea with the electric kettle.
The location is perfect for a run to the Ballard Locks and a walk to Market Street. As a former Seattleite, I have to say that this location felt like being back at home! Staying here will give you a good sense of what it's like to live in an iconic Seattle neighborhood. There are beautiful gardens (including Amanda's), and it's walking/running distance to the Ballard Locks and Market Street. I highly recommend staying at Amanda's home!
A wonderful, clean, safe, friendly spot. Amanda was very welcoming. The brownies in the refrigerator were a nice touch. Great neighborhood with a few good restaurants within walking distance. The Fat Hen about 4 blocks away is a great breakfast spot. We would definitely stay here again.
This place was perfect and felt very private. The neighborhood is beautiful and great for taking a stroll. Little homemade snacks were a welcome touch after being on the road. Thanks for making us feel so welcome!
Upon arriving at Amanda's space, we were greeted with pistachios and organic strawberries. Both snacks were appreciated following a long drive to Seattle.
The hospitality didn't end there! The space was warm and welcoming (so was the bathroom floor - which was heated!!!!). The pictures accurately reflect the coziness of the room.
Although we didn't meet Amanda directly, she made sure that we knew she was available if needed.
I would highly recommend a stay with Amanda. Thank you!!!
This is our third visit to Amanda's place in Ballard. It feels almost as
comfortable as home being convenient and quiet. It's better than
Amanda is a superior woman. All those whose lives she touches—her daughter, her students, her friends, and the Airbnb guests she receives in her home—are lucky indeed. She fell right into the rhythm of the Nook and joined us on the deck several evenings for wine and talk with our dinner guests and with another Airbnb guest. Amanda is interesting and articulate and has some great stories to tell. She was a smashing guest, and I’ll bet she is an equally smashing host. We really enjoyed meeting her and hope we’ll see her again.
As an experienced host, Amanda knew how to be a great guest and it was a pleasure to have her stay here.
Amanda was fantastic! Her and her friend were friendly, kind & left the place very nice... they were so quiet i would hardly know they were there... i wish we would have had more time to get to know one another because i know we would be great friends.
loved having amanda and luisa stay with us. they unfortunately got to be here during the boston lockdown and hunkered down for the day eventually heading out for a walk to tufts. i wish luisa the best of luck choosing a school that works well for her and her swimming. it was a treat to have them stay in our apartment :)
It was so nice to have Amanda and her daughter Louisa here with us. They were easy guests and they weren't here long enough. Maybe they'll come back if Louisa decides to go to college in Amherst.
Amanda and her daughter were delightful and very respectful of the cottage. They were visiting Maine's top colleges so they didn't have lots of time for rest and relaxation. I hope efforts are rewarded and the college of her daughter's choice says YES! It would be a pleasure to host them again.
Amanda and her daughter were great guests, friendly, respectful, clean, and very tidy. They are welcome back anytime and come highly recommended.
Amanda was a great guest, I would be delighted to have her and her daughter back any time!
It was an absolute joy to have Amanda and Luisa share our home. They are the perfect guests. Very clean, quiet and friendly. We would welcome them back with open arms any time.
Amanda and Luisa were the perfect guests. Good communication and very easy going. They were my first guests ever, and I was a little nervous. I'm hoping others that rent are as nice and trustworthy/respectful as they are! Thanks Amanda and Luisa.
Amanda is a super friendly family host who knows Seattle inside and out, has a wide range of interests and is very willing to share her knowledge about all the best places to eat and visit. She has thoughtfully created a real home away from home with her beautiful studio with its own entrance (and bathroom) and has added some lovely touches which is typical of her attention to detail. You'll enjoy visiting with Amanda and her family.
