“Fantastic Ballard Townhouse”
Reviewed March 28, 2018 for a stay in March 2018

My wife and I stayed here for four nights and had a blast!

There are lots of great restaurants and bars within walking distance. The bus lines will get you anywhere you need to go in the city. The ride from Ballard to downtown Seattle averaged 30 minutes by bus.

The townhouse itself is wonderful and cozy. In the colder months I definitely recommend using the fireplace while you are there. Keeps the whole place warm

Looking forward to coming back again sometime!

We called the Ballard Abode home for two weeks and highly recommend it to others. The condo was very clean and modern. It is in walking distance to Market Street and Ballard Avenue that host many restaurants, shops, and bars. It is also in walking distance to the locks, Discovery Park, Golden Gardens Parks, and several other neighbors. The bus stops for the D and 40 lines are close so it is an easy commute downtown and to the airport via the Link. Prior to and during our stay, Thelma was very responsive and provided numerous suggestions.

“Fun Stay”
Reviewed September 12, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

My husband and I had a great time in Ballard. This apartment is very close to the Ballard shops, restaurants, movie theater, supermarkets and bus transportation downtown. Thelma has a very clean townhouse with all the necessary amenities. We really enjoyed our stay here.

Beautiful condo with a lovely garden, perfect for sitting outside with a glass of wine after a day of touring the city! We really enjoyed the location as it was easy walking distance to lots of fun restaurants and pubs and shops in Ballard. It was also an easy walk to the Ballard Locks and botanical gardens, which is well worth some time to spend. We took our bikes, and it was a quick pedal to the Burke-Gilman Trail to ride along Lake Union and to the University of Washington and beyond. Thelma, the owner, was fantastic to work with and made sure we had everything we needed. She was very responsive to my questions before we left for our trip. We will definitely stay at Ballard Abode again!

We recently stayed at the "Ballard Abode!" We had a great experience! It was exactly what is advertised..if not better! The townhouse had everything we needed, was exceptionally clean...and was so conveniently located to the transit system. We will definitely stay again whenever we have the opportunity to return to the lovely city of Seattle! It was a perfect vacation!
