Description of the Seattle vacation townhouse rental
Ballard Abode is a cozy 1 bedroom, 1.5 bath town home in historic Ballard. It was built in 2006 and is in excellent condition with all new furniture and decor and radiant floor heat. Relax in the living area next to the gas fireplace and prepare meals in the full kitchen if you decide to eat in. Or sit on the little balcony or the patio for some fresh air and the sounds of seagulls overhead. There is a garage for a small car as well as a small private back yard. The townhouse sleeps 3 comfortably, 2 in a queen bed and 1 on the twin sofa bed.
Area Information
Less than 10 walking minutes away are three great grocery stores. Or walk to one of the many and varied nearby restaurants, bakeries, and coffee shops to satisfy your hunger. Explore the colorful shops and boutiques just a few blocks away on Market Street and historic Ballard Avenue. Spend your Sunday wandering through the delightful Ballard Farmers Market that offers fresh organic foods and other interesting booths with unique wares for sale. Or venture a bit further to the famous Ballard Locks, Ballard Bridge, Green Lake, Fremont or Golden Gardens where you can enjoy the beach. Downtown Seattle is just minutes away with popular options for sightseeing including the Space Needle, the Music Experience and, of course, the famous Pike Market. Ballard Abode is on the bus line that goes directly to downtown.

There are many neighborhoods around Seattle that were little towns before becoming part of greater Seattle. Ballard is one of these and so, it has a vibrant little downtown area that includes the Ballard Avenue Historic District listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Historically Ballard was a fishing village and still has many inhabitants of Nordic ancestry. Ballard is a great place to navigate from as you explore not only the sites in Seattle but also the San Juan Islands and the Hoh Rain Forest in Olympic National Park. Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument is nearby. The Canadian cities of Vancouver and Victoria are not far away.

Great stay, great location!

September 8, 2014

We loved our stay at the Ballard Abode. The townhouse was spotless, well furnished and comfortable. The location is perfect and we were able to walk or bike everywhere. We enjoyed the stores and restaurants in Ballard and walked to the locks. We would highly recommend it for couples or small families.

A wonderful vacation spot

In Seattle for college graduations. We found the home even more beautiful than the photos. Our contact with the landlords was always helpful, and professional. Our next visit will include a stay here if possible.

The appartment's location is ideal, close to Historic Ballard, shops, restaurants, cafes, and public transportation (bus).. The appartment was clean and most comfortable, and we felt welcome. It is perfect for a couple.

Thelma was very accomodating and quick to respond.

January 7, 2013

The location was great. I've always stayed downtown when traveling to Seattle but the Ballard neighborhood was surprisingly pleasant. Thelma was great at keeping the communication lines open and was available for any questions or inquiries. The 'abode' was very comfortable and aesthetically pleasing. I would recommend this place for any couple looking to spend some time in Seattle.

Nice place to stay

December 23, 2012

We loved this rental. It was clean, easy to find and warm. We liked the fireplace and the kitchen was just right for the two of us. If you are looking for a place near Seattle without having to stay down town this is the place. If you are planning on staying here and renting a car I would recommend renting a very small car because it will fit in the garage. Our Subaru Forester fit fine. Parking on the street could be problematic.
