About Darrell Kirk
The owner of 'Treat House' enjoying the Puget Sound while hunting for 'Dungeness Crab'. 'We are very fortunate to live just minutes from the Puget Sound and have created a lifestyle around it. We love Salmon fishing, Crabbing, and watching all the wildlife in and around the area.' 'We have also taken up the sport of 'Stand Up Paddling', a new type of Surfing where you stand up on the surfboard and paddle. They just opened a 'Stand Up Paddle' shop about 3 minute drive from our home, so guests to our home have had the opportunity to try this new sport. Some of the pro riders in the area watch the ship and freighter schedules closely so they can surf the wake these huge ships produce as they ply their way from all parts of the world into Seattle' 'We never get tired of the 'Ballard Locks' which is about a 3 minute drive from our home. In addition to the 2 locks, there are large, wonderful gardens there. In the Summer you can hear a variety of bands in the 'Summer Concerts at the Locks'. Watching the large and small boats go through the locks is amazing and I have had the opportunity to see an entire house go through on a barge. They tilted the house via ballast in the barge to tilt the entire vessel. On another note, I would have loved to have seen the large 'Sturgeon' fish my wife saw in the locks swimming with hundreds of Salmon. The Whales have also come closer to the area and I saw 3 large pods of Killer Whales just off the shore about 20 minutes north of our home. Back to the Ballard Locks, there was a large whale spotted just near the locks feeding on Salmon just a few months ago.' 'We are jaded living here for almost 10 years now and forget how beautiful a place this is until we talk with guests who visit. It is just wonderful reliving our first times here through the eyes and stories of our guests.'
Darrell Kirk purchased this House in 2001
Why Darrell Kirk chose Loyal Heights
We choose this area as it is very quiet and within walking distance to the Puget Sound 'Ocean'. It is also easy to walk to coffee shops and restaurants.
What makes this House unique
A poem was written by one of our guests and sums up the Treat House Experience: So Happy Up Here Walking in mist for the morning news; Thoughts drift along to older mews. Not long ago a playground for Treat; Horses and hunting dogs kept a beat. Then up to 85th the trolley ran; Houses rose as they cleared the land. Loyal was born that very same year; The neighborhood was christened with a cheer. Treat blessed us with Gardens by the water; The beach bore the name of his daughter. Sweet aromas from Larsen’s fill the air; Then The Fresh Fish Company, what a pair! Up hill and down the school children go; Every shade of the rainbow they glow. Mom, dad or caregiver at their side; Love watches little feet scamper inside. Nights so quiet and sidewalks so clean; Not far above the Ballard Ave. scene. On the walk back, friendly faces abound; So happy we ended up in this town.

Clean, quiet and comfortable
Plenty of space and very quiet and cozy. We stayed over the Christmas holiday and the "in floor" heat provided comfortable, even heat.
WONDERFUL, historic home in a quaint neighborhood!
Darrell was incredibly helpful and available when we needed him. Our place was clean and provided everything we needed at the time. Even the linens smelled fresh and clean!
A sweet and safe little haven!
I stayed 6 nights in this cute and comfortable little place. A good bed with quality bedding and pillows. It had more room than I was expecting and though the parking is in the alley, It was well lit and right at the door. Many neighboring houses parked in the alley as well. It was very quiet. The neighborhood was good and I felt very safe there as a country girl alone in the big city!!! Darrell was very friendly and helpful. I would certainly stay there again!!!
Great place to stay!
I enjoyed my stay. The bed was super comfortable!
Nice rental for the price.
Location was perfect for our visit to relatives, comfortable neighborhoods to walk through, appreciated the delicious breakfast places an easy few blocks away, quiet room and comfortable bed, met our needs as a convenient place to sleep.
This cozy little place was perfect for our week in Seattle. The place was clean and well stocked with everything we needed. The little nook with an extra bed was perfect for little kids. The place is small, but we we're busy during the days so it was fine for us, and for the price I don't think you can beat it!
