Cozy, centrally located, and easy access to public transportation
This cozy, warm apartment is conveniently located in the heart of Ballard, just 0.5 mile from is quaint downtown. The neighborhood is safe and friendly. And, one of the most coveted by the locals because its many attractions and conveniences. Ease of access to transportation and within a 5-10 min drive to downtown Seattle.
Many of my guests leave their car parked at home to avoid the hustle of finding parking or having to pay for it, they simply walk down on 24th Ave to Market St. Just 5 short blocks away are two of my favorite bakeries, Café Besalu and next door, Tall Grass Bakery. They make artisan breads and pastries, the best in town. There are other small businesses on 24th like Olaf’s a nice pub literally around the corner. A hamburger joint Scooter’s and a nice big grocery store (QFC) with free underground parking for getting your groceries. My guests have also told me they enjoyed and appreciated very much the convenience of grabbing bus #40 at the street corner and riding to downtown Seattle.

Ballard was a city of its own in the past founded when cars didn't exist. It was later absorbed by its bigger sister city Seattle. For this reason, it can still feel like a small town retaining its downtown, working waterfront and old businesses open to date. Many warehouses and storefronts though, have been converted to tasty new restaurants, like my favorite Mexican, La Carta de Oxaca on Ballard ave.
Seattle is a city with a solid public transportation when it comes to buses.
We are located less than half a block from the bus stop. You can take routes #18 and #40 at our block corner of 24th and 64th; both will take you to downtown Seattle. Route #40 also goes to the Northgate Mall in its northbound route. Route #44 on Market Street will take you to UW.
If you have a smart phone you can use Google maps and chose the public transportation option when planning your route. You may also find very useful the OneBusAway App with real time transit information, timetables and route planing. This App was first develop here at home at the UW and it is now in use all over the US and abroad.

About Mario Dominguez
Originally from Cuba I have lived for over 19 years in the Seattle area. My wife and I enjoy meeting new people, traveling and learning about different cultures. I enjoy tasting food from different parts of the world, which makes Ballard particularly a good place for its many restaurants.
Mario Dominguez purchased this Apartment in 2013
Why Mario Dominguez chose Old Ballard
We love Ballard because of its conveniences and good schools which is important to us as new parents. This property was of particular interest to us because of its location and access to public transportation. It also has the added benefit that we can share its two separate units with our guests allowing us to be to afforded leaving in this neighborhood which otherwise would have been difficult.
What makes this Apartment unique
Conveniently located in the Ballard area. Walking distance to: NW Market St, Ballard public library, Golden Gardens, Hiram M. Chittenden Locks, restaurants, french bakery, pubs and bus stops to Downtown Seattle (#40 south), Northgate Mall (#40 North) and Udistrict (#44 West)

Great small studio
The studio was very clean and cozy and at a great location - walking distance to Ballards shops, bars and restaurants.
Worked Just Fine
Clean and comfortable. Good offstreet parking. Wonderful bed.
Perfect little getaway
This is a great little suite in the heart of Ballard on a quiet street. Our hosts were helpful and provided all the information necessary in an email ahead of our stay. Bed was extremely comfortable! The outside courtyard is darling and with the fantastic weather we had we were able to sit outside with a glass of wine and enjoy. The kitchen was well supplied with coffee, tea and condiments. QFC is within walking distance.
Our place was clean, secure and driveway parking was great!
Clean, safe, and convenient
Our stay at Mario’s place in Ballard was very pleasant. This is the second time my wife and I stayed there while visiting our Seattle family. When we return to Ballard we will be sure to check its availability as it has a very convenient location and Mario keeps the unit in great shape.
2nd Time Staying Here!!!
This is our second stay at Mario's property. The things we said two years ago are still same - "Wonderful, clean, perfectly located apartment. Nice neighborhood for walking and not far from many of Ballard's attractions and restaurants. Lovely little garden space in backyard. Perfect size for a couple with a large, comfortable bed and attractive kitchen. Would definitely recommend and enjoy staying there again." We will be back again. Thanks Mario!!!!!
Great stay in Ballard!
