We are a couple of Seattle based artists. Patti makes mixed media art, Benson does public art.
This is a special spot! Patti was welcoming and communicative and makes incredible art work. Every thing in the house is thoughtfully chosen and beautifully organized and the bedroom is big, light-filled, with a comfortable bed and sweet little table to sit at and a big closet. The location is excellent-- an easy walk to cute restaurants and bars and shops. We had a great stay here, totally recommended!
It was my first Airbnb experience and it was really good! The studio was clean, quiet and very convenient. There are a lot of Patti's art works in the studio, which was super cool. Patti was very nice, and she told me lots of useful information about Seattle and Ballard. I'd love to stay here next time!
Lovely stay at Patti and Benson's Artist Studio. Great communication, really nice place, very clean, comfortable. The bed and linens are comfy! I travel by bike (and train) and Patti had set up a secure place for my bike in the house -- a good accommodating touch. Patti and Benson are, of course, very knowledgeable about Seattle should you need suggestions. Their place is in a great location in Ballard, very close to lots of action, and access to bike trails and transit to take me further in my explorations of Seattle. Altogether a positive experience!
On first arrival the house was beautiful and welcoming. Patti and Benson are very nice hosts. A great perk to the home was the off street parking. This home was relaxing and unique. I would recommend this home to others.
Wonderful accommodation in the Ballard neighborhood. Patti was welcoming and helpful. Old Ballard and Freemont are close by and you will see some of Patti's work in various treasure filled shops! Downtown is a little ways away, but taking the bus in means you don't need to deal with parking etc..
I had a truly lovely time staying in the artist's studio. The house itself was charming, unique and quite cozy. Those neighborhood was great for walking around and getting a feel for a distinct part of Seattle. I had the chance to chat with Patti and witness some of her creations- very special! She was so helpful and kind. Would definitely come back and stay again.
The Ballard Artist Studio was a great place to stay in a walkable neighborhood with amenities nearby. Communication with Patti was easy and responsive. She provided a nice tour of the house and gave helpful local recommendations. The studio has a lot of charm, and has everything you need for a short stay. Off-street parking was a nice bonus.
We love staying there! Patti and Benson are super hosts. The house is interesting with Patti's art everywhere. We really enjoy this kind of house that is older and beautifully kept up. It is a perfect spot for our bi-annual event. The kitchen is great with a fun pantry.
Thanks again to Patti and Benson!!
My family and I live in Ballard; I booked the Artist's Studio for my mother while she was in town for a visit. Go ahead and book it - you won't regret it!
I highly recommend both the accommodations and Patti's hospitality as a host. In terms of the latter, Patti was very responsive and communicated with me well throughout the process. It was a pleasure interacting with her and learning the history of the house.
In terms of the accommodations, it's a beautiful older house a few minutes walk from everything in downtown Ballard. The bedrooms are nicely decorated and very comfortable. When my mother arrived, there was a liter of Talking Rain (sparkling water) waiting in the refrigerator. The bathroom is very nice and, according to my mother, the hot water is quick and plentiful. Bonus points for being very well-lit at night, as it made my mother feel safe when she walked home.
Located in Ballard area and Patti&Benson's house was simply FABULOUS! Patti gave us clear and specific introductions and we could directly feel more than 100 years of history of the house.
Watching Patti's artwork all over the house was also fantasticl!! Would definitely stay again!! Thumbs up!
Absolutely wonderful Airbnb friends! Loved visiting with the couple! Please come back again soon! :)
Very personable, neat and tidy.
I love everything about Patti and Benson's BNB! The ambiance is comfortable, homey, and playful.Their beautiful Craftsman home is conveniently located to absolutely everything you could possibly want for your business or pleasure stay. (Don't miss the cardamom pretzels and fabulous coffee at nearby Besa Lu, and the Majestic Bay Theater has a refreshing feel of small town flavor for first run films.) Patti and Benson are very knowledgeable, helpful and just plain fun to be around. I loved spending time in Patti's art studio, her work is simply amazing. I will definitely stay here on my next overnight visit to Seattle! You should, too!
