Great weekend in awesome neighborhood
Everything was as expected/communicated. With all the construction going on, there was still at least one street space available close to the house (driveway space was great, but our vehicle was large). Also, the neighborhood was surprisingly quiet after business hours. The houses/condos are close together so with the windows open we could hear neighbors conversations, but they weren’t unreasonable and they quieted down at a decent hour. We were mostly out and about, but with an amazingly stocked kitchen we were able to save a lot of money by eating breakfast and dinner at the house. The location was awesome. It was close enough to all the hot spots in the City center/downtown, but far enough removed to enjoy peaceful evenings/mornings. The zoo (and the awesome playground nearby), the Locks/Fish Ladder/Botanical Gardens, and the Ballard Farmer’s Market are all close by as are some hidden gem restaurants and cafes. We would not hesitate to stay here again the next time we visit Seattle!
In between housing...
We had the pleasure of staying at this very dog-friendly home for 16 days while we were between homes. The home is exactly as pictured, in a great location and Karen is very responsive should you have any needs while there.
Wonderful Neighborhood. ❤️
The house was great. We had a couple of good nights hanging on the back deck laughing talking and eating. Great local restaurants- Bean&Buscuit was walkable for breakfast and delish. Hi-Life was a short drive for another brunch(in an old firehouse 🙌🏼) and had amazing food too. Couple of blocks for a walk for the grandson to play on the playground.
Would love to return and would definitely stay here again!
Good location, clean, charmer
Clean and charming, well located home in Ballard. Kitchen was well stocked with coffee and condiments. 3rd bdrm. upstairs, can be warm during summer. Construction was going on at both ends of the street, so street was sometimes closed off on one end, during our stay in July 2019, Parking was lacking if you come back later in the day, and will become worse once the new condos on ends of street are finished.
Great house, great location
We very much enjoyed our stay at Old Ballard. The location is perfect and the neighborhood is really fun. The house was clean, a nice little backyard, and the entire area is very safe. Plenty of room for a family of four. I would stay here again.
Very good location with easy access to tourist sights especially if you’re driving.
