We've really enjoyed our stay in the Ballard Abode. Thelma's attention to details made for a comfortable stay that was easy and stress-free. It definitely had a home-away-from-home feel. The place was very clean and had everything we needed for a very comfortable stay. The garage where we were able to park the car made parking just that much easier....

Management response:

So glad you had a good time at the abode and in Seattle! And thanks for the lovely review. Please do come back. We enjoy having former guests so much that we offer you a bit of a discount!

Good communications and no problem with accessing the apartment. The description 'cosy' really means relatively small but it's well equipped. The main living floor has a balcony you can sit out on and there's also a small garden you can use. The main bedroom is huge but it's a shame there's only a queen bed in it. At the end...

Management response:

Thank you for your review. We do have the place well equipped and are happy when people use the lovely garden and patio area. I'm sorry that the notes were upsetting. They are actually a result of questions that former guests have asked, a collection of answers to FAQs you might say.

Stayed here for 4 nights in Sept. Vacationing in Seattle area. Directions and checkin went smoothly. There is a garage on street level and was able to park our rental a Toyota Camry. It was tight, but manageable. There is a washer/dryer at back of garage and also leads to a small back garden. On main level, full kitchen, living...

Management response:

I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay at our townhouse and thanks for your kind words. You did indeed sleep a queen size bed in the bedroom. I'm so sorry about the missing supplies. Our cleaning crew failed to let us know but they have been reminded how important it is to keep the supplies stocked.

About the neighborhood
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.
