Welcome to Seattle! This spacious one bedroom apartment in the heart of Ballard, one of Seattle’s most popular neighborhoods, and is just a 15-minute drive from the center of downtown Seattle. This is a completely separate, light-filled apartment within the home that I recently purchased.

The space

You’ll have plenty of space to unwind after a long day of exploring the city with approximately 1,000 square ft. in the open floor plan apartment and access to the large backyard perfect for enjoying Seattle’s perfect summer weather. The apartment has its own separate entrance, kitchen, washer / dryer, and bathroom and I've furnished the main living space with a super comfortable West Elm sleeper sofa where you can relax by the fireplace and watch Netflix and Amazon Video, as well as a dining table. I've equipped the kitchen with all the cookware and everything you need to cook meals in or heat up leftovers from the great local restaurant scene. I added pictures with the furniture I recently added as of 10/3/17, and have Airbnb scheduled to come take professional pictures so will add those soon! There is plenty of street parking if you have a rental car, and Safeway is a 10 minute walk or short Uber/Lyft. I’ve listed as a 2 bedroom since since the apartment is furnished with a large Queen bed in one room and a Queen size sofa bed in the main living room area. More info on the Ballard neighborhood is included in the detailed description.

Guest access

When you book a reservation you should get an email from August Smart home to download their app which will provide you access to the apartment using an iPhone or Android phone during your stay. I can provide real keys too if that is preferred.

Interaction with guests

I’ll be living in the main house and am happy to chat and give you some advice on what to do and see to make the most of your trip to Seattle or to give you total privacy, whatever you prefer.

Other things to note

A recent complete renovation of the home included new floors with sound-proofing, but it is still possible to hear louder noises or if someone is walking with shoes or talking loudly above since sound can travel through the HVAC system. During the week I mostly just unwind after work at night so noise should be limited, but on weekend I will occasionally have friends over for dinner and drinks. I'm past my loud partying days, but just a warning that it may not always be silent if that is important to you. Another note: kids (under 18) are free and do not count as an extra charge.

Josh was very friendly and a great host. The studio apartment was very clean, spacious and comfortable. Neighborhood was nice and quiet, and walking distance to local coffee shops. Street parking was readily available. It was also nice having a washer and dryer,since we were there with two teens for a week. Overall a great place to stay.

Josh was the consummate host...helpful, attentive, full of suggestions for restaurants nearby, etc. The apartment was well-stocked with everything from fresh towels to gourmet coffee. The location in Ballard was terrific, and the apartment itself was private and quiet. Would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting Seattle!

The apartment was lacking a few expected amenities; I understand that Josh is working on furnishing the place. The location was close enough to local shops and eateries and situated in a safe neighborhood.

Good for a weekend hang out. In a great residential area. Only 5 block walk to the Biscuit and Bean coffee shop, as well as grocery store. Entrance is around back and is a basement apartment. Very clean and bright. Not true one 2 bedroom apartment, 1 queen bed in bedroom area, and one double fold out sofa in living room.

Response from Josh:
Was great hosting you and your girlfriend Douglas, would welcome you back anytime. Just a quick note that the listing description does note that it is not a true 2 bedroom, but I have listed it that way so that it shows up in searches for people looking for a place that sleeps four in 2 Queen beds. The sofa bed is a true Queen size also, it is this one: (URL HIDDEN) In an effort to prevent any confusion though I think I'll go ahead and move it back to be listed as a 1 bedroom that sleeps 4 (for now) and hopefully it doesn't hurt my bookings too much.

Josh is very gracious and friendly host. He was always available when needed and had great recommendations about the neighborhood as well as sightseeing. Josh is very attentive and made sure we are comfortable. His house is brand new and in very cute hip neighborhood with nice downtown area, full of restaurants and cute coffee shops. Do not miss their Hot molten cake shop on Ballard Ave. - must try if you are a chocolate lover. There are some playground areas around the neighborhood if you travel with kids. Kitchen well equipped with basic cooking supplies needed for cooking meals. He has even espresso machine and coffee grinder!!! He was gracious to leave for guests the best coffee!!! 15 min to downtown!!!
