 Property Reviews 
Great Location!
A guest from Menasha, WI recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2014
We spent a week here with 2 other couples and had a wonderful stay! Things we especially liked were the location...a few blocks from public transportation and Ballard neighborhood has great restaurants and shops. The garage was a very tight fit for our larger mini van, but we managed to get it in to avoid the street parking. The place was clean and very suitable for our stay. If I had to say one thing that was a negative, it was the barking dogs in the unit over (early in the am)...but it didn't ruin our fun!

Northwesterner Ballard Seattle WA
susan t. from Waterbury, VT recommends this property.
Stayed for 6 days in April, 2014
We were very pleased with the rental. Happy to have a driveway spot as on street parking is a nightmare in the Ballard area. Our rental car(a minivan) would not fit in the garage, so we parked in the driveway. A smaller car would fit in the garage of the rental unit. We loved how close the unit was to everything. One issue is that the view out one of the windows looks down to an area where dogs are allowed to be and there was a lot of doggie waste matter in there, the owners eventually cleaned it up, but it didn't happen daily, it happened once during our 6 day stay(very gross, not good for the dogs). Also not enough hooks for towels and face clothes to hang up these items. Oh and the washing machine squeaks badly when in use. We are otherwise very happy that there was a place for 6 of us to stay so close to our Seattle family.

Property Manager Response:
Response from Sea to Sky Rentals, LLC
Hi Susan! Thanks for the tips, we appreciate these gems of knowledge. It helps us provide a better experience for our future guests. I will let our property care team know that more towel hooks are needed in the bathroom and that the washing machine squeaks. I love Ballard too, such a great neighborhood isn't it? And I agree, a driveway is priceless in Seattle! Thank you for staying with us, we'd love to have you back again next time you're in Seattle!

Hi Zachary! I'm glad you got to stay in the Northwesterner in Ballard. Ballard really is a great location, one of my favorite locations! Great wording "clean, modern" I think that describes the townhome perfectly. I know what you mean about parking, I have the same issue in my neighborhood, sometimes I have to park a little distance from my apartment.

A guest from Singapore, Singapore recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in March, 2014
It was a lovely stay. Would come back !Only problem was with the heating in the ground floor room. It was freezing and the vents which blew air made it worse.

Property Manager Response:

I am so glad you all had just a nice time in the Northwesterner. I know what you mean about those vents in the larger homes. Its so hard to get it just right. Come back anytime, we'd love to have you as our guests again. Next time we'll find you something with a little less temperamental heating system :)

Lovely space in Ballard.
A guest from Lexington, KY recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in September, 2013
Our annual gathering, three men and their books, took place in Ballard this year. Our stay at the Northwesterner could not have been more perfect. We didn't cook while there due to the dozens of restaurants, pubs and cafes within a 10 minute walk. The rooms were just right, quiet and the shared meeting space was most enjoyable. Well cared for and in a great location. Perfect for our needs.

Overall, the property was very nice--great location, clean & comfortable. One suggestion (not really a complaint, since we only ate breakfast in the home) is that the kitchen equipment ought to be replenished--we were not able to find some basic utensils. But otherwise the property was great.

Pre-wedding city stay...
Megan B. from Clearwater, FL recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in June, 2013
The condo was beautiful! Clean and well appointed, the condo was tastefully decorated, modern and bright. Location was central to anything we needed or wanted to do in Ballard and downtown was little more than a few minutes drive. The parking situation was well explained ahead of time and fortunately, the neighbors had taken to street parking so it was not an issue at all to park our rental van in the driveway. Staying in this condo was infinitly more comfortable and convenient for our 2 families (7 people) than any random hotel. A very pleasant overall first-time rental experience.

Property Manager Response:
Response from Sea To Sky
Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. It is so great that you enjoyed your stay at the Northwesterner and I agree one townhome is much better for a family of 7 than a few hotel rooms! I am glad you were able to park in the driveway, another thing to note is parking in the street is also easy to come by. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for exclusive deals and promotions, we would love to have you back!

Great staff for a poor property
Josh W. from Seattle, WA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in February, 2013
The staff I interacted with were all great! The property, however, was lacking. Here were a few of our concerns:-Maintenance was very poor i.e. towel racks and TP holders kept falling off.-The grill was so dirty that we had to clean it for 30 minutes before we could use it. Even after this elbow grease, it was pretty nasty.-The back yard had not been cleaned for some time.-The neighbors have VERY large dogs that barked when the owners left.-We had to keep the blinds closed in the living room because the neighbor's yard was right below the window- and the yard was COVERED in dog ****. -Although the house sleeps 8+, the common area is too small for groups of more than four or five.-The house shows a lot of wear.I should note that the location of this property is decent. Not my favorite part of the city, but it is nice for families.

This three bedroom, 21/2 bath townhome has everything needed for an extended stay. We spent Christmas week with our family and it easily slept 5 (could be more) and had lots of room for entertaining. The kitchen had all the necessary pots and pans; and dishware and glasses for 12 made our holiday meals a pleasure. In addition, its location within walking distance of downtown Ballard made it a great spot.

The Northwesterner
A guest from Hayden, ID recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in August, 2012
We found the property to be very clean and well stocked. It is a great place for a family or group of 4 - 6 people. The location was pretty good - about 5 miles from downtown and the Space Needle. Parking in the garage is very tight (our Honda van JUST fit in the garage), so if you had a bigger SUV or truck , you would not fit, and would have to park on the street which is very much at a premium. Our only issue with the Northwesterner was some dogs belonging to one of the neighbors. They were often outside and barked excessively for extended periods of time.

Property Manager Response:
Response from Sea To Sky
Hello Suzanne! Thank you so much for your review. Guest feedback is always appreciated! I'm glad that you enjoyed the property and your stay in Seattle.

This is our second time staying at the Northwesterner. It is in such a convenient area with so many things within walkin distance. I must say though this second time I was a little disappointed with the cleanliness of the kitchen and dining area. There is a need to update some of the utensils - new can opener please.

This was a beautiful townhouse in a perfect location. Walking distance to restaurants and shops. Easy to get around the city from the location. I would stay again and recommend to friends.

Great place in Seattle's Ballard area!
Caleb W. from Bend, OR recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in May, 2012
I used to live two blocks from this house and love the Ballard area. This is a good place to stay with a family, friends, or even just on your own. Parking is really limited, though. And, the dishwasher was broken on this trip. Overall though, definitely recommend this place and anything else Sea 2 Sky has to offer.

Convenient but with problems!
A guest from Flagstaff, AZ does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 5 days in October, 2011
Don't plan on parking in the garage. We had a standard car and it drove right into the garage with about an inch for the door to close but backing out was a trial. The neighbor in one of the attached houses says the garages are big enough for storage! He is right. Dishwasher didn't work and the washing machine screamed. Can't use the fireplace unless you move the two chairs on either side because the leather(not!) gets very hot!!! It is hard to find a place for them. It was very convenient for us. We had a wedding in Ballard and we could walk to the venue. It was clean.

Great Condo; Bad Parking
A guest from Millersburg, OH recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in September, 2011
WE stayed at the Northwesterner Townhouse on the Labor Day weekend for my son's wedding in Ballard. There is 1 parking space in the garage. We had 3 cars and numerous vistors as this was headquarters for all of the groom's family. We had to park all cars about 3 to 5 blocks form the condo. If we unloaded in front of the garage for 10 minutes, the neighbors immediately complained. The adjacent neighbor has a garage but he always parked in front of his condo entrance making getting our 7 passenger rental van hard to get into our garage. We had no garage door opener but the Sea to Sky people immediately brought one over, Thank you. We also had no way to change channels on the big flat screen TV in the lower bedroom as that required a "Comcast" remote. So every time you want to change the channel you had to walk upstairs and borrow the Comcast remote from the living room TV. Sea to Sky had no fix for that problem. For a cost of $350 per night you should buy a remote. Otherwise the place was great for our 6 guests and baby.

August trip to Seattle for family wedding from Vermont
Christopher C. from New Haven, VT recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in August, 2011
The Northwesterner in Ballard was a great place to stay for a week in August. Luckily, our weather couldn't have been better the entire time! Ballard turned out to be the perfect neighborhood to stay. Lots of food and shops within walking distance, a great grocery store about three blocks away, and a great local farmers market on Sunday. The townhouse was clean and comfortable, and the kitchen had virtually everything we needed to prepare meals. There were three things we noticed that could be improved. 1. The bed(s) in the smaller of the two rooms upstairs were too big for the room. 2. The gas grill on the deck was extremely close to the wall of the building. 3. The tv in the living area seemed to get a lot less channels than the one in the bedroom upstairs (or the instructions on how to use them weren't clear). Overall, our family had a wonderful stay and would reccomend it to anyone and would come back to stay there again.

The Northwesterner was a beautiful home with all the accouterments for a comfortable stay. We are a large family visiting Seattle for a family member's wedding. The Northwestern is centrally located in Ballard which made it easily walkable to shops, restaurants and The Sunday market.

wedding party rental
Cynthia S. from Mount Veron, WA recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in May, 2011
our first nite we came home to park our car in the garage and there was a car in the driveway right up to our garage. It was 11at nite as we just came from the rehearsal dinner so did not want to wake the neighbors up but was unable to use the garage like we were told we could with the rental. the party that parked there left around 8am. It was a suburu wagon and a blonde lady drove off in it. That was upsetting at that late of nite to try and find parking in the nite and we were very tire.

The property exceeded our expectation. We really enjoyed all of the extras that were in the condo. The Kitchen was incrediably well stocked and had everything we needed to prepare meals. The Parking was a challenge (as we had a Mini-Van)... but were told that before hand. We enjoyed Seattle -- even though it RAINED everyday -- and had a great time visiting family.

Beets a hotel room...
Leslie R. from Lancaster, California recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in February, 2011
The Northwesterner in Ballard, Seattle, Washington is clean, well stocked(they thought of everything), and charmingly decorated. It's in delightful neighborhood that oozes with Seattle charm. It's a mere few miles to downtown or pretty much any of main areas of interest. We liked having our privacy, unlike a hotel would offer. The price breakdown also makes this a better deal than your local inns. But the best part is it's more like a home than just a temporary room. Also in closing, I would like to add that the young man who helped us(Brian) was awesome. He really went the extra mile to make our stay really special.

Nice place to stay in a good location
A guest from Round Rock, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in September, 2010
This was a great place to stay for a family of six. The house was clean and nicely furnished. The location was good - in central Ballard and about 15-20 mins from Pike's Place with a bus route that goes almost directly there. The neighborhood was a mix of new condos for urban professionals and older houses and apartments. It seemed safe and mostly family oriented. There was a good mix of coffee shops, stores and restaurants within walking distance.

A guest from Shorewood, WI recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in August, 2010
Very difficult to park, especially with Ford Explorer. Vehicles on both sides of street and right next to and behind drive- a real challenge to get in and out of property. Encourages walking. Property itself very new and up to date. Beds extremely comfortable. No problems. But parking is a real challenge and also difficult to find location to park nearby on street.

Second visitor to the Norwesterner in Ballard
cyril b. from Spring Hill, KS recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in August, 2010
We enjoyed our stay at the Northwesterner. It is so close to the locks, and to downtown Ballard, that walking is mandatory. It is also very close to downtown Seattle, Fremont, and Lake Union. And best of all you are a short drive away from the Sunset watching place above the beach. A must see on a day you can see the sun. The property is clean, comfortable and very livable. Parking is a bit of a problem. Backing onto a street with cars parked on both sides takes some getting used to. Overall a great experience.
