Ideally suited to quiet, eco-conscious guests who like their own self-contained space. Conveniently located near buses, grocery stores and restaurants in a quiet neighborhood. In warm weather you might enjoy relaxing on the back deck.
My neighborhood is very quiet and safe with plenty of street parking.
I am a yoga and Pilates teacher. I enjoy meeting travelers and sharing suggestions about restaurants and activities.
If you're interested, please write and tell me about yourself.

Der Wohnraum

My downstairs bedroom has its own bathroom, separate entrance and a laundry room with kitchen amenities (fridge, sink, microwave, electric kettle, rice cooker, toaster oven, dishes cutlery, etc). Coffee and tea are also provided.
There's a queen futon bed w/ memory foam gel topper, dresser, desk and large closet/storage area.
High-speed wireless is provided, but no cable channels. A Roku player on a large flat screen offers free Netflix streaming as well as some TV channels.
You have complete privacy in this space; I only need to come downstairs once a week or so to do laundry (free use of washer and dryer).
I love dogs, I don't own one right now but sometimes dog sit. I currently have a cat, who might or might not share the back door (it has a cat door) with you, depending on your preference. If you have a dog I keep the kitchen door closed.
A number of my guests who were moving to Seattle with dogs were comfortable here while seeking permanent lodging. I can't accept dogs that bark excessively or are overly rambunctious. I sometimes accept cats but have to make sure they won't mark or leave odors behind.
There are lively and scenic areas in all directions from my house, all within 1-2 miles. To the south is downtown Ballard, with fashionable restaurants, bars, clubs and boutiques; to the west and north are the beach, woods and hiking trails. East of here is Green Lake, a popular spot for runners, walkers and rowers.
Some restaurants and supermarkets are within walking distance, as are several bus lines to downtown, the U District, north and south Seattle. Downtown Seattle is about 6 miles away, or half an hour by bus. Downtown Ballard is about 1.5 miles away, an easy 20-25-minute walk.

Zugang für Gäste

Back deck and yard. For longer stays the kitchen is occasionally available for simple cooking or baking but I'm mainly vegetarian so don't want meat cooked in the kitchen. However, there is a barbecue grill on the deck that guests may use.

Interaktion mit Gästen

I check in with guests when they arrive and leave, either personally or by text. Depending on whether they're alone or staying long term, we might have coffee or socialize more. The best way to ask questions or reach me is by text.

Weitere wichtige Infos

This space best suits people who don't mind living simply. Anyone used to soft, box spring mattresses might find the futon too low and firm, even with the gel topper.
You will hear footsteps upstairs. I try to be quiet but it's an old house with creaky floors. This could be a problem if you wake easily and want to sleep in or need lots of quiet time during the day.
Since it is a basement there's no view, but the bedroom will be quite bright on sunny days and there's good indoor lighting.
I do have a cat who uses the back door but normally wouldn't come into the bedroom. Please close the door just to make sure and let me know if you're allergic. I can keep him upstairs.

Ballard is a great little town, very glad we stayed there! The room/basement was perfect for what we needed, very cozy, and a great deal. I'd recommend Ellen's as well as the Ballard area in general.

Ellen was a very welcoming and helpful host - easy to contact and offered many recommendations for late-night eats nearby when we arrived later than expected. The room is in an older house and basement level, so be aware that you may run into a spider or two, but this also meant our room was nice and cool during the heat wave that hit Seattle. Bed was very comfortable and shower had great water pressure. SUPER close to the D line bus, which we took to/from downtown Seattle (about a 30min ride to Pike Street Market) and having a separate entrance was convenient. We loved Ellen's cat, who was an affectionate purr machine and greeted us each night when we came home!

I really enjoyed staying at Ellen's place for the week. The neighborhood is nice and quiet. It is nice to have a separate entrance and the basement to myself. Ellen was very helpful when I checked in.

Ellen's place was perfect. Everything we needed while we stayed there. Comfy stay, beautiful neighborhood, and fun downtown area. We took Jaxson (dog) for a long walk and noticed the beautiful flowers growing all over. Every house was different. Ballard area has a great downtown scene with fun bars... about 8 min uber ride and 15 min ride to Seattle.

I stayed with Ellen for two weeks and was very happy with what was my first Airbnb experience. Ellen is a lovely host - friendly, helpful and respectful of her guests privacy. The little apartment is well equipped, quiet, clean and, during the heat of August, beautifully cool. I slept wonderfully! The occasional visit from Ellen's dear little cat was a sweet addition. I would definitely stay here again!
