    Description

    Welcoming and cozy, this home is the perfect place to relax after a busy day of sight-seeing. Plenty of everything (bedding, toiletries, kitchen supplies), washer-dryer, outdoor patio with bbq. 

    This property is located in a desirable and safe neighborhood that is nestled between the the most popular neighborhoods in Seattle: Ballard, Fremont, and Woodland Park/Phinney/Greenlake. Surrounded by wonderful restaurants and coffee shops. Also walking distance to the popular micro-breweries area (sign up for the microbrewery tours!). 

    Also, a great way to see these close areas is to use the public bike rentals all over the neighborhood that cost around $1 for 30 min ride, or the battery-powered bikes that are $1/10 min. Getting to Greenlake by battery-powered bike is about a 10-15 min ride. These bikes are all over the city and often there are several infront of the house. 

    Home is 1 block from convenient bus lines that will take you to Downtown (15 min bus ride), the Pike Place Market, the University of Washington (15 min bus ride), Westlake (Google and Amazon) and the Fremont and Ballard shopping areas (5 min bus ride). If you are driving, the location is about a 5 min drive to many of the popular Seattle attractions, and about a 20 min drive to the airport and East-side suburbs like Bellevue, and companies like Microsoft. Easy rail & bus ride from airport. Uber & short rental Go cars are very popular here & easy to find within blocks.

    A superb spot to enjoy all of Seattle's attractions! There are many bedding options including an infant crib. Baby items are available such as a stroller, a baby hiking backpack, children's books, toys, games, and videos. A gaming system can be available upon request. The Playground is just 2 blocks away, Ballard indoor pool is minutes away, and Woodland Park Zoo just up the hill.

    Your perfect vacation home location!

    Guestbook

    Very comfortable home - really enjoyed the location and all the extra space.  Great kitchen and having a clothes washer and dryer was an added bonus.  Wireless internet worked well too.  Thank you for hosting us, Ballard is a great place and so close to Seattle's center (only 20 minutes by local bus).
