About the property

This cozy spot is truly one of the closest rentals to downtown Ballard!

This Ballard vacation rental is close to all the great things in Ballard!

It is in walking distance from Ballard Ave, The Ballard Locks, all the fun Ballard boutiques, coffee shops, bars and restaurants, the Sunday Market, the Ballard Library, the Majestic Bay Movie Theatre and more! Also, it is one block away from a full market and a Starbucks, so picking up groceries or an early morning coffee is quick and easy!

It is a townhome with high ceilings and ample windows. You will enter on the 1st floor and walk up the 2nd floor. On the 2nd floor, there is the living room, dining area and large kitchen. A small bathroom is next door with a washer and dryer. This smaller bathroom is a half bathroom meaning it has a toilet and sink, but no shower nor bathtub. Go up to the 3rd floor, and there are the two bedrooms and one large bathroom.

The townhouse has 3 levels and stairs connecting each level.

It is near all of the stores and restaurants, yet surprisingly quiet because it is set off from the street. It is located down a small driveway. This offers some privacy, quiet and a great parking spot right in front of the garage. It fits one car nicely!

- Sleeps 4 people comfortably in the 2 queen size beds.

- A 5th or 6th person could be added sleeping on the living room couch and/or the air mattress. The townhome is spacious so there is plenty of room on the floor for an air mattress.

- Queen-size bed in both bedrooms.

- One parking spot in front of townhome. There is street parking for extra cars or visitors.

- There are 2 bathrooms. One of them is a half bathroom, just has toilet and sink (no shower or bathtub). Other bathroom is a full bathroom with 2 sinks including a "toilet room" (a room just for toilet with a door)

- There is a full-size washer and dryer.

- Bedrooms are located upstairs from kitchen/living room. So guests don't have to worry about being too loud if someone wants to go to bed early :)

- This home is in walking distance to all of downtown Ballard. It's also in walking distance to popular bus lines (at least one goes to downtown Seattle).

- The townhome is 1400 square feet. For a 2 bedroom townhome in Ballard, this is a spacious size!

We look forward to hearing from you :)

About Andrea

Our family has had this townhome since 1999. We are the original owners. We bought it brand new, and have tried to take good care of it over the years. We have lived in Ballard for the past 17 years. We are excited to offer our guests a get-away in this great neighborhood with so much to offer: parks, waterfront, shops, restaurants, cafes and cocktail bars.

We care a lot about this townhome: its maintenance, upkeep and appearance. We will do everything that we can to make sure your stay is comfortable and enjoyable for you!

Andrea purchased this townhome in 1999

Why Andrea chose Old Ballard

Location, location, location!

This property is in walking distance to the heart of Ballard.

- 2 blocks from a main bus line (that takes you to downtown Seattle)

- 1 block away from a full service grocery market (with a great wine department and liquor store).

- 1 block away from bank with ATM.

- 1 block away from a gym - offering "drop in" sessions

- 3 blocks away from downtown Ballard!

There is so much you can do and it's all within walking distance!

What makes this townhome unique

The location, the spacious-ness of townhouse. Bigger than most townhomes in Ballard. Finally, it is quiet although it's very close to the heart of Ballard. The townhome is built on a small driveway that is off from the street. This gives it some privacy, quiet -- and a nice parking spot right next to the front door!

Charming and Close to Everything

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed that there were many places to walk to. Buses were accessible and a rental car could get us most places in half an hour.

Perfect in Every Way!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Andrea’s home. This was our first trip to Seattle so we weren’t sure where to stay and we’re so happy

we landed here. This home has everything you need, off street parking, unbelievably comfortable beds, washer/dryer, deck, plenty of comfortable seating, and WiFi. We were not wanting for anything after a busy day of sight seeing. The location is perfect, quick drive to major sights, but tucked just a block away from the hustle and bustle of the city. It was a safe and quiet area but within walking distance to restaurants and the local grocery store. I honestly can’t think of a single downside to staying here. We rent homes every time we travel and this is truly the best of the best.

Loved this house

  • 4 of 5

This condo is very well kept up, clean, well stocked, comfortable beds. The parking is a little tricky, with a narrow driveway and parallel parking, but there's a designated off-street spot.

Great location, right off 24th in Ballard. Walkable to everything there.
