About Vicky Stover
We currently live on our 50' sailboat, and built this apartment for when we decide to live on land! We love being in Ballard and have a work shop right next door, where Karl builds very nice cabinets for yachts and sometimes houses! We love to cruise in our beautiful Puget Sound and its surrounding waters and have been as far south as the Kingdom of Tonga on our boat. We look forward to sharing Ballard with you!
Vicky Stover purchased this Apartment in 2004
Why Vicky Stover chose Old Ballard
Ballard has everything we wanted in property, a small town full of delightful restaurants, walking distance to anywhere we might want to go, a beach, several playgrounds for our grandkids, a hospital if needed, and grocery stores! We love not having to drive everywhere and our boat is tied up in the marina just a few minutes away. We like knowing our neighbors and the people where we shop and eat and this town does just that. It has grown a lot since we bought our shop building in 1993 but still retains the small town feeling.
What makes this Apartment unique
We bought this house as it was right next door to our shop and needed a lot of tender loving care to bring it back. Karl and I have spent a good portion of our life together rehabbing houses and this one received our tender loving care. It is the last house as you travel south on 24th and we have so many people complement us on how nicely kept it is! Since Karl is a wood worker, we added many personal touches in keeping with the house's history.

The owner has thought of just about everything. The apartment is light and bright, newish and clean, and very comfortable. I was here for a month and was very satisfied. Vicky is gracious and helpful. I would stay here again. Great walking neighborhood, too!
My wife and I are VRBO veterans (more than 10 stays in different places) and this is at the top of our list. Everything about the property was perfect! The appliances were high quality and new as was the cabinetry and it was stocked better than any place we stayed (wonder of wonders, the knives were even sharp. Don't let the fact that it is below grade deter you. there was lots of light in every room and we never felt like were in a basement.
Both of the owners were wonderful and they responded immediately to the only problem we had during our stay (a temporary internet outage).
The location is close to multiple restaurants, the famous Ballard Farmer's Market and good transportation options.
In short, this is a great place and you can't go wrong renting here.
Well appointed apartment in great neighborhood
Loved the location, close to lots of stores, restaurants, and attractions. Ballard is a very good walking area and also has plenty of public transportation to allow ease of getting around the city. The apartment interior was beautifully finished and Karl and Vicky were very accommodating hosts. We were grateful to have a parking space provided. Our only frustrations were being unable to figure out how to work the gas oven and the microwave always required extra cooking time. We would definitely return to stay here again.
Excellent place to stay!
I had a great time staying here! Within walking distance to downtown Ballard and a close drive to downtown Seattle. The place itself had everything needed for a short or longterm stay. I would definitely stay here again!
Within a few blocks of fabulous pastries at Besalu, a choice of your favorite local coffee houses, a wide variety of locally owned restaurants with tastes for any palate, and amazing Happy Hours! A delightful farmers market on Sunday's to fill your larder and intriguing stores with something for everyone! Golden Gardens is a lovely park on the beach, and on your way there you can check out the Ballard Locks! After a day at the beach, a dinner at Seattle's famous Rays Boathouse restaurant !
