COZY AND WONDERFUL LODGING IN BALLARD AKA FISH KITCHEN HOUSE
QUIET HOME IN GREAT LOCATION
Location: Home is in a walkable quiet neighborhood with excellent restaurants and markets all within walking distance. No noisy neighbors, and no barking dogs . . .
Off-street parking. This is not easy in Seattle.
Modern kitchen: Looks recently renovated, with modern appliances and lots of empty shelves for your own foods, as well as all the necessary cooking equipment you need.
Ambience: generally uncluttered, with just enough personal items to feel like you are borrowing a friend's house for a visit.
Bedding: comfortable for up to four (in two double/queen size beds), with fresh linens and towels. (As long as you can all share the one bathroom.) Space for two of us was perfect.
Cons: I hate to say it, but if you are allergic to cats or have a sensitive nose, this might not be the place for you. Just keep windows cracked and you'll be okay. Cat odor plus screens needing to be fixed made for a bit of a negative first impression. (I would have fixed the front door screen myself if there was a splining tool available.) But we settled in and ended up loving it. Pros outweighed the cons for us.
One other point re: property management: Communication was only by text messaging. Given I had used my land-line when making the reservation, there was no way for me to communicate with property management during our stay. (I wanted to tell them about the screens upon our arrival, for example, so they did not think we did it.) Text messages and emails bounced back as "not recognized".-- Consider using a cell phone number when making the reservation.
Overall, a good spot that needs just a wee bit of tweaking. Thank you to the owners!
