Why Melissa Flynn chose West Woodland
The property was purchased nearly twenty years ago when Melissa was given the first-choice to buy as a tenant. The great neighborhood and charm plus added bonus of it being income property made it an irresistible opportunity.

Great house in Ballard for exploring Seattle
Clean and comfortable house; perfect for our Seattle weekend. Homemade muffins were a delicious bonus!
What a great location!
This property is very close to our family in Ballard. It is close enough to walk to Ballard's Farmers Market on Sunday, and a short drive to Trader Joe's. The house is well stocked, and the home baked muffins were delicious!
Cute and Cozy
I was recently in Seattle on business and this little cottage suited me perfectly! It was within walking distance to a seemingly infinite number of breweries, bars, and restaurants in Ballard; and a $10-$20 Uber ride to everything else. The owners LITERALLY greeted us with fresh baked muffins and recently picked plums!!! I had no challenges with booking or payment, and my security deposited was refunded in a very timely manner. I'll recommend this place to any associates traveling to the area.
Location, location, location!
If you plan to spend a lot of your visit to Seattle in the Ballard area or downtown, and don't want the bother and expense of a car, you can't beat this house. Everything is easy and convenient to get to. The home is nice and the bedroom is quiet. Sleeping on the sofa-bed in the living room is good if you are not bothered by traffic noise.
Clean and comfortable
This house had everything we wanted in it and Melissa is an excellent host. She was easy to contact and very friendly and welcoming. She brought us all kinds of snacks and drinks and was really thoughtful. We would stay here again. Loved the coffee and tea each morning and we even used the iron. Great location too.
I would have given this location 3 1/2 stars but that rating doesn't exist.
On the positive side, the 'house' is beautifully decorated and the kitchen extremely well equipted. We enjoyed the muffins, cookies, beer, and gelato left for us. The backyard has a nice swing next to the huge blackberry bush.
But on the negative side, it is very small and I'm glad that there were no more than two of us staying there because we tripped over each other in the kitchen. It is located on a busy street with a bus line; the express bus is very convenient for getting downtown. However, even with all the windows closed, one can hear the traffic noises all night. And if that doesn't wake you up at night, the sound of the fridge motor will - I thought a helicopter had landed in the yard the first night.
All in all, I would stay here again as it's convenient. But if a roomier vacation rental not on 8th Ave. opened up, I would go there instead.
Ideal location for craft brewing enthusiasts: there are 9 micro-breweries in close proximity! I have a list! The best Neapolitan pizza outside of Italy is just a short walk from the door. There are grocery stores, notable restaurants, galleries, thrift shops, fashion boutiques, Woodland Park Zoo, Sunday’s farmers market, Ballard Salmon Locks, Golden Gardens Park and Beach, the Nordic Heritage Museum, live music venues, movie theaters, drop-in yoga classes, bars, coffee shops, laundromat, Ballard community pool, Greenlake Park, Lenin and The Fremont Troll statues…everything is accessible from this location.
