Cozy private bedroom located in a quiet part Fremont, a very vibrant neighborhood. Includes a private bathroom with shower, wifi, full kitchen access, washer & dryer, and very accessible public transportation to downtown and other parts of Seattle.
This spacious room has a private bathroom and closet, and is fully furnished with a queen bed, desk, chair, and dresser. It's in a townhouse that's tucked away from the street in a quiet residential neighborhood of upper Fremont, the self-declared center of the universe. While quiet and residential, it's a very short walk to 3 major bus lines and the restaurants/shops of Fremont.
-The private 3/4 bathroom is furnished with towels, wash cloths, and shampoo/conditioner/soap.
-Large west-facing windows
-Unlike a lot of Seattle, there is free street parking all around the neighborhood.
-Bicycles can be stored in the garage.
-Full access to the furnished kitchen, which has up-to-date appliances.
-You can use the washer and dryer, with detergent provided free.
-Digital piano in the living room.
-Coffee and tea are complimentary
Interaction with Guests
My girlfriend and I both work full-time, so we can generally only chat in the evenings or on weekends. We live here and can answer questions about the house and neighborhood.
-4 blocks from a cluster of restaurants: Paseo (soooo good!), Uneeda Burger, Via Tribunali, Pecado Bueno, Ha!, Caffe Vita and many other cafes.
-Walk to the heart of Fremont and the canal, as well as to the Woodland Park Zoo and Green Lake.
-Walking distance to 5 grocery stores: QFC, Trader Joe's, and Fred Meyer are 1 mile away. 3 blocks from Marketime Foods, the (smaller) neighborhood store. PCC markets is a half mile walk south.
-Quick access to N 46th St, Fremont Ave, and Aurora Ave / I-99. I-5 is 1.5 miles east via N 45th St.
-A few blocks from Fremont Peak Park, a cute little park with an amazing view of Ballard and Puget Sound.
Public transport here is really great! You can get to a lot of Seattle without any transfers. 3 major bus lines are very close (5, 44, and E):
-1 block from line 5/21: to Greenwood, downtown, SoDo, and West Seattle.
-1 block from line 44: get to Ballard, Wallingford and the University District.
-5 blocks from RapidRide Line E: fastest way downtown if you don't mind a slightly longer walk.
-1 block from the 5E, which doesn't stop until getting downtown. Runs only during commuter hours.
-Some other lines (28, 40, 26) are about a 15-minute walk away.
Other Things to Note
Please note that the room is on the third floor, and there are two flights of stairs--this is not the best place to stay if you have issues with mobility.
Also, please note that we don't have a TV or cable (but can lend you an LCD monitor).
I'm looking for guests who use common sense, are clean, and are respectful of the room and all common spaces.
No smoking, illegal drugs, or pets. Alcohol is ok.
-Please take off shoes when you come in.
-Please lock the front door when you go out.
-While or after showering, please turn on the vent for about 10 minutes.
Please just ask if there's any rule you are unsure about :)
We stayed two nights in Han's place. Great location! Within walking distance to some wonderful eating places-- Paseo's, Via Tribunali, Uneeda Burger--- we tried all three and fantastic!
The place is quiet, clean and exactly as pictured. Great value.
The location was perfect with several public transportation options in close proximity. The neighborhood is vibrant with plenty of food options. The room is perfect for one person and it was easy to get in and out of the house with ease. I met Hans briefly and he was perfectly nice. but he sets up the space to be very user friendly. Seattle was awesome and the room at Fremont made it much better.
We enjoyed our stay very much. The location was ideal for us. We never got to meet Hans but the others we did meet were friendly and helpful, and Hans was very accommodating when we were in touch electronically. We would like to stay there again.
Hans' place was great - nice and quiet, clean and lots of plants everywhere. A short walk to groovy Fremont and easy to get into town. Only thing was the kitchen and lounge were pretty messy but I didn't need to use them much anyway. Hans was friendly and helpful.
Hans and Heidi are very kind and helpful. The room is very lovely, clean and comfortable, with very great view. Every morning our daughter loves to watch outside enjoying morning sunshine and birds singing!
The house location is just central and easy to access every places we wanted to go. Thanks for sharing us your lovely place and we love this vacation staying here. Thank you~^^
The room was beautiful - clean, open and bright with a comfortable bed and great private bathroom, all as pictured. The location is AMAZING - Fremont is a fun, quirky neighborhood and easy to explore on foot plus there are bus stops to downtown (Pike Place, Space Needle, etc.) just a few blocks away. Hans and Heidi were friendly and welcoming, and check-in/out was smooth and easy. Hans was great at getting back to my messages quickly and was very flexible as our travel plans changed a bit. Heidi was particularly helpful in telling us how to use the public transportation to get to the airport without a lot of hassle - saved us about $30 on a cab ride! We LOVED our stay in Fremont and would highly recommend it to anyone!
It was just as it was described: clean, comfortable and close to public transport. There were enough flyers in the room including guides to city sights, and even close places where you could eat.

I grew up in the suburbs of Philadelphia before going to school for computer science in central Illinois. I moved to Seattle to work for Amazon as a software developer. After graduation and before starting work I went on an 80-day solo backpacking trek through six countries in South America. In my free time I enjoy programming, reading, yoga, Spanish language, and rock climbing.
