Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday apartment in Seattle - Ballard 2 bdrm-2 lofts apt.
4 queen beds, up to 8 guests, 1/2 mile From Market Street in Ballard.
This 2 bedroom- 2 sleeping lofts apartment seats atop of our Seattle, Ballard Home. The unit is private and independent, modern and warm with a simple but nice decor. Each of the 4 rooms has a new queen bed mattress in it. A total of 8 people are able to sleep comfortably (in pairs).
The high ceilings that allow the lofts also make it feel airy and spacious. The many windows let in lots of natural lighting. On clear days we get a beautiful view of Mount Rainier and the Space Needle right in front of it, albeit from the unit’s entrance and the south facing loft only.
The apartment comes with all the standard amenities that you would expect to find in a regular hotel room like, ironing board and iron, hair dryer, soap, shampoo, toothpaste, coffee maker, toaster, toilet paper, clean linens, fresh sheets, etc.
The kitchen has a gas stove/oven, full fridge, dishwasher, cooking utensils, pots and pans. There is a dinnerware set for 8 person. We have a Keurig coffee maker with some coffee pods included to get you started in your morning coffee. There is an electric tea kettle and toaster.
The round table is expandable from 4 to 8 people allowing your entire group to come together for dinner. Four folding chairs are stored away in the closet near the entrance.
In each of the two bedrooms we have installed wall-mounted drop-leaf desks that are out of the way when not in use but, are perfect for those needing to get some work done while in vacation.

We are located only ½ miles from the Ballard downtown core. Yet, far enough removed that you can enjoy a peaceful night sleep in our quiet and friendly neighborhood.
Ballard has being called by some a foodie’s paradise for its many and diverse restaurants, bars, cafes and bakeries. It attracts young and less-young people with active lifestyles because of the many outdoor activities available here. There is the 27-mile multi-use recreational Burke-Gilman trail, Golden Gardens Beach and park, an indoor rock climbing gym, kayaking, fishing, boating and bicycling and other outdoor activities.
The bus stop is at the corner of our block. There, you can take routes #18 and #40; both will take you to downtown Seattle. Route #40 (I am more familiar with) takes you to downtown in 30 minutes at a cost of $2.25. In its northbound route it will take you to the Northgate Mall. Route #44 on Market Street will take you to UW.
Google Maps works particularly well with the public transportation option in the Seattle area. You can also download to your phone the One Bus Away App that was designed by a local UW graduate student.

Why Mario Dominguez chose Seattle
If you are familiar with Seattle you know how beautiful, cosmopolitan and welcoming this city is. When previously living in the North end of the city I found myself coming to Ballard again and again following tips from friends for restaurants, bakeries, pubs and outdoors activities. We chose to live in Ballard because it is a safe, clean neighborhood surrounded by good schools with lots of outdoor activities, like walking, running, bicycling, rock climbing etc.
What makes this apartment unique
Conveniently located in the Ballard area. Walking distance to: NW Market St, Ballard public library, Golden Gardens, Hiram M. Chittenden Locks, restaurants, french bakery, pubs and bus stops to Downtown Seattle (#40 south), Northgate Mall (#40 North) and Udistrict (#44 West).
