A great family friendly neighborhood, comfortable beds and great restaurants and local businesses to check out just a few blocks away.

This was the perfect place for our week long stay in Ballard. It was exceptionally clean and well appointed. The only thing we missed was a cookie sheet to bake biscuits on, however there was a big cast iron skillet that worked perfectly well. The beds were very comfortable and I loved the gas fireplace. We were happy with our stay.

House was very clean and very comfortable. Location is great. Easy to walk to coffee shops or restaurants. Of course, parking in the garage is tight but doable if you have a small car.
Would rent again.

Excellent location

Private, clean, comfortable stay with a lovely patio. Comfy king bed on 1st floor with bathroom. AC is a plus for hot weather. Be able to do several stairs to 2nd and 3rd floor.

The location is really ideal. It was easy to walk to great food, coffee, shopping and sight seeing in the fun Ballard neighborhood. Travelling by uber from here to sight seeing around town also was easy. We didn't need a car for the long weekend, but if we did, having a garage is key in this parking tight neighborhood. Our family of 4 was really comfortable in the space and appreciated the 3 bathrooms and the AC. The kitchen is well equipped and there is a grill on a deck off the dining room. There is also an outdoor eating area in a small backyard space. This was the first VRBO we stayed in that wasn't someone's home, but is managed by Vacasa, so it had more of a hotel feel than our previous stays. But there's benefits to that as the local operator was really accommodating, check in and out was easy, and the app etc make customer service responsive. What the place lacked in character, it made up for in ease, cleanliness, location, and comfort. We would stay there again.

The location cannot be beat. Plenty of room for six people. Only small complaint is the air-conditioning works too well on the ground floor while the second floor remains warm ( at least a 10 degree differential)
Manager response:

It was a wonderful home to stay in!

We had our family Thanksgiving and this Townhouse was perfect for it. This home is also close to the main part if Ballard and is easy walking.
Teresa B. Nov 2019
Travelled to Seattle with our 2 adult boys, this home was the perfect layout for all of us to have our own personal space. Location is perfect for walking to our favorite places in Ballard. Would definitely stay again!

Great place and location

Perfect location in Ballard, plenty of room, clean, and well-stocked. We utilized it while we were waiting to move in to our new house, and it served us well.
Mary L. Jul 2019
This place was really roomy for the 6 of us. Walking distance to everything.
Linda L. Jul 2019
very spacious, conveniently located near the Ballard business district, quiet, biggest negative is the very small garage and getting out of the oddly positioned driveway
Ted K. Jul 2019
Easy walking distance to Ballard Business District.

The unit we stayed in was very clean and suited us well. It was great to have a garage because there is no other parking. The unit is in walking distance from market street.
Mary . Jul 2018
Excellent location- we spent a whole day just in Ballard, mostly walking to good restaurants, interesting museums, the locks, breweries. The house is clean, spacious and has all the amenities; it could use some updating to make it shine!

Our family just returned from our stay at the Ballard Northwesterner. It was the perfect spot for us!!! Great Location... Comfy Beds... Warm, Cozy Atmoshphere... We highly recommend this Wonderful Ballard Home!!!

This is the 5th year we have stayed in the Northwestern condo in Ballard. The location is great - very walkable, the unit is spacious and well equipped and the management is excellent. The unit is always very clean and well maintained. Any small maintenance issues - ex. an overhead lightbulb that is out are addressed promptly. It has a great kitchen and is a wonderful place for our family and friends. We would plan to stay there again.
Jessica T. Apr 2017
The home was nicely decorated and well set up for a great time. We brough our family and they loved being a new place for a bit. Ballard had so much to offer and we really enjoyed our stay. We will be back again.

My family had a great time staying here. There were tons of restaurants and a grocery store within a few blocks. It helped us save money by stocking groceries in the house for the week. The home is very close to a few major bus routes so we were able to go downtown and to the zoo very easily. The house was described accurately and clean when we arrived. I would recommend staying here!

We stayed here with 7 people total for 4 nights. It was a little tight with someone sleeping on the pull out couch, but worked fine as we didn't spend much time in the house. The place was VERY clean! The furniture was updated and the kitchen well stocked. We had a car the first night and parking it in the garage was a little is a VERY small garage, you had to do it perfectly or one of the mirrors would hit the side! We did notice the neighbors car was parked in the driveway pretty much the whole time, it was never an issue for us but I could see it being a problem for someone with a car for their whole trip! The location is perfect, a lot of restaurants, bars, and coffee shops within walking distance! About 20 minutes by car to the downtown area. UBERs were available at all times and places, we never had to wait more than 5 minutes for a ride! The carpet in the first floor bedroom could use replacing...there were several noticeable stains and at the entrance to the bathroom there is no finished edge! I kept stepping on it and pricking my feet on the under carpet staples! Not great at 2am! Also, the hair dryer in the first floor bathroom is terrible...I think it might be older than I am and took 25 minutes to get my hair semi-dry. Overall though this was a fantastic find and we would definitely stay here again!

My husband and I, my daughter and son in law, visited Seattle for the first time (my son is a Ballard resident) and we stayed at the Northwestern. I was pleased to find that its location was ideal, near to my son's apartment and walking distance to all the Ballard restaurants and fun places to visit. It was clean and well stocked with needed items. We didn't cook much but the kitchen was roomy and bright and clean, with a large eating area. The bedrooms/ baths were comfy and clean. We used the back outside patio pretty much daily. Great visit !
