Bedroom: Queen Bed | Living Room: Sleeper Sofa

At the end of each adventurous day in the city, there’s no other place you’d want to spend your downtime than this unit nestled in the downstairs unit of this charming home! Grab your favorite beverage and head straight for the furnished walkout patio to reflect on the day in the fresh air.

Rainy days are best spent inside this newly renovated, historic downstairs unit where vibrant colors and comfortable furnishings invite you to lounge around. Kick back on the couch in the living area next to the bright orange decorative fireplace and watch movies on the flat-screen TV with local channels and streaming capabilities.

Beautiful flooring leads you seamlessly from one room to the next in this open-concept floor plan, so you’ll have no trouble socializing with your travel companions. Late-night snacks are best prepared in the well-equipped kitchen featuring a 2-burner stove, convection oven and microwave. Enjoy your treats at the eat-in bar for 2 before calling it a night.

Rinse off in the pristine, white bathroom with walk-in shower and then head to bed in the bedroom’s plush queen bed or atop the living room’s sleeper sofa.


Nestled right near the heart of the Scandinavian, maritime town of Old Ballard, this home places you minutes from several urban attractions!

Pack a picnic and walk to the picturesque Golden Gardens park and beach along the Puget Sound, where you’ll also come across the Ballard Locks.

Watch boats come and go in the popular Ballard Locks, featuring more boat traffic than any other lock in the country, so you’re sure to see plenty of unique boats!

From the home, you’ll also be within walking distance of many excellent bars and restaurants, bakeries, a year-round Sunday farmers market, grocery and specialty food shops, a public library, small live music venues, book shops, and an outdoor skateboarding park!

Bikers, rejoice! This area is extremely bike-able, so either bring your own or utilize the floating bike share to explore the city via one of many nearby trails, including the Burke Gilman Trail, minutes from the home. You'll be able to ride neighborhood greenways straight to an area hosting 17+ craft breweries!

When you’re ready to hit the big seaport city, take a bus or drive just 6.5 miles to all of the famous attractions! Visit the Space Needle, Chihuly Garden and Glass, the Seattle Center, the Olympic Sculpture Park, and the countless museums that dot the eclectic city

Cozy super clean.

  • 5 of 5

If I could put the cute tiny apartment in my pocket or suitcase and take it home to live in it I would. It’s immaculate, clean, just perfection. If every location I stayed in was like this it would be perfect! Better than any hotel we could’ve stayed. We loved the small touches like the coffee! Saved me from murdering my kids and husband in the morning or finding them a new mom. Great place.

The place is great. Very thoughtful design.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 3 nights and were very pleased. The design of the recently remodeled unit is nice. The bed was comfortable and pretty much everything was great. Some thoughts:

Location: Ballard is a bit out there, it's not terribly far from Queen Anne, University district, or downtown (about 15 minutes), but it does take a little effort to get there. We had long Lyft rides to Bellevue. However, if you were going to get this quality of a place, you’d pay a lot more to be in central downtown, no doubt. So other than being patient to get there, what it does have going for it is that it's not a touristy area, it's a neighborhood. There are a ton of great places to eat within a half mile to the east. If you like touristy, stay elsewhere.

Train noise: didn’t even notice it. Sure, it rumbles through and I guess sensitive people might mind it, but I hardly noticed it when not sleeping. I’m an earplug wearer while sleeping anyway, it didn’t wake me up even once (same for wife and child). Not a big deal to us.

Other stuff: it was close to Ballard Locks, a nice diversion. We didn’t have a chance to kayak, but I hear that’s fun. We recommend Full Tilt Ice Cream. Also, we saw a movie at the cool Majestic Bay Theater, reportedly the oldest running theater in the US. Great spot, highly recommended. Not too much time to do other things nearby, unfortunately. There are at least 5 or 6 breweries within a mile or two, as well.

Owners: I met Joel, very nice guy and accommodating. I wish I had more time to chat, I’m sure we would have shared a beer.

Overall, we recommend this place.

Perfect home base

  • 5 of 5

Property was extremely well thought out, was an easy and pleasant walk to the Locks and the Ballard downtown. Blocks away from the bus to Seattle downtown. We were two adults with two infants, sometimes with two additional adults, and the space worked wonderfully. Owners were wonderful. Highly recommended.

I'm ready to move in! The owners went the extra mile in this unit. They thought about everything you may need. The patio is lovely, private and comfortable. No view from the patio, but it didn't matter. The train did not bother me at all. I highly recommend this unit! I called Uber from the street so it was easier for them to find me and had no problem. I would stay here again in a heartbeat! Enjoy!
