Bright, clean, and spacious house that's close to most of Seattle's best areas! The host was very hospitable and easy to communicate with.

This house was perfect for our stay. There were bedrooms and bathrooms on all three levels which made it seem like each a couple had their own private space. The house was clean and very new. It was centrally located to all the cute restaurants and shops in Ballard. Also, this house was great for our kids since there was a TV room which they could play in while the adults had their own area. I would definitely stay here again and would highly recommended it. We had a rental car so we drive into downtown Seattle but it seemed like the public transportation would be easy to navigate as well.

I stayed here with a group of friends and it was absolutely wonderful. The house was extremely comfortable and clean and Pieter was attentive and made sure that everything worked out just right. I definitely recommend staying here if you are coming to Seattle and Ballard is a wonderful neighborhood!

A group of us got together for a quick reunion weekend and this gorgeous four bedroom house was perfect for us four adults. I'm so glad we chose to go the Airbnb route. It was such a nice change from hotels! Pieter was responsive both before and during our stay. He checked in with us a few times before our arrival to make sure we'd have everything we'd need, including varying heating/thermostat preferences. His wealth of knowledge when it came to the Seattle area was super helpful when I asked for suggestions on what to see or do. On the day of our arrival, he even called to make sure we checked in okay. And we were especially thankful that he was available super late one night to help us when we called him with an issue! Our only regret is not having spent more time at the house during our stay. There's an awesome collection of books in the living room and if it hadn't been raining during our stay, the back deck and patio would have been perfect for winding down with a glass of wine. There's even a trampoline in the backyard! One of our favorite moments of the weekend involved us just sitting around the kitchen, catching up on life. This is Pieter's family's primary residence and it's obvious they take good care of their home. Ballard is such a great location and I highly recommend staying in this beautiful house if you're visiting Seattle.

We are an active family with a 12 year old girl and 8 year old boy. Shannon and I (Pieter) have lived in Seattle for more than 20 years, and are passionate about our community and exploring the Pacific Northwest. We love to cook and garden, camp and hike, explore the outdoors, and travel. Depending on how you want to enjoy your time, we can recommend great hikes or snow shoeing opportunities, as well as places to fish and enjoy the nature of the Pacific Northwest. In addition we have several recommendations on most local restaurants, where to find the best coffee, freshest pastry, or most savory cocktail. We know our neighborhood and community inside and out.
