First the good - As stated the house is in a great location to the services and restaurants in Ballard. The weather was nice, so we were able to easily walk the mile +/- into the heart of Ballard. The house was clean upon arrival. The kitchen was very well equipped, with plenty of cooking and eating supplies for a large group. The layout was nice, with open spaces for our group of 8 to gather. The bedrooms were comfortable. There was an ample of supply of towels and linens. There is a small deck with a BBQ grill. It worked fine. Now for the concerns. First, this is not a house for seniors or anyone with issues on using stairs. The pictures show the steep stairs to get into the home. All the bedrooms are upstairs. Not a issue for our group, but this should be noted. The yard is small, typical for urban Seattle. But the adjoining homes are VERY close. Outdoor gatherings of children and groups of adults will make noise and disturb the neighbors which again are very close. The listing notes a garage that can be used. This is inaccurate. The garage is locked and can not be used. We had to haul golf clubs up the stairs. Now here is the big issue - the apartment listed is separate! It does not come with the rental of the house. This should have been disclosed in the listing. It was occupied when during our stay. They are living directly below the kitchen/living spaces of the main house. So out of general courtesy we tried to be quite. Had this been disclosed ahead of time we would have never rented this home. I don't know how anyone living in the basement apartment could sleep with 8 adults walking around upstairs.... I would not recommend this home to seniors with mobility issues, children, because of noise or any large group of adults unless the additional "apartment" is rented. Perfect place for quite couples who want a large home close to Ballard and Seattle service and activities.

Post wedding escape

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our needs. It was an excellent location to come back to after our wedding at golden gardens. I was unexpectedly cancelled on before finding this property and the owners here were gracious and accommodating to my situation. Thank you for making our wedding weekend spectacular!

Awesome location for our retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Our small company stayed at the house for our annual retreat and it was perfect. The kitchen is well stocked and the bedrooms are large and nicely decorated. It worked well as a retreat space because of the multiple living areas downstairs and the open layout. We could work in our own spaces but still be in the same "room." The center island in the kitchen and large couch in the family area were perfect for conversations. It worked well to be able to have some people cooking while others were on their computers projecting something on the tv in the adjacent living/couch area. We missed not having a Bluetooth speaker or some kind of sound system compatible with portable devices for some tunes while we cooked or were just hanging out downstairs. We used Pandora on the TV and had our own Roku stick, which made things easier. The house is within walking distance to downtown Ballard and other popular neighborhood spots. Thank you for a great stay!
