About This Listing
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 or pets.
-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 were very pleased with our entire trip to Fremont. Our host, Hans, greeted us upon arrival. His directions had been clear and concise, and we had no difficulty finding the condo. The accommodations were clean and welcoming, with everything we needed for our two night stay. We wish we could have stayed longer.
The neighborhood felt safe, and we had no problem parking our car on the street and spending the next two days walking to neighborhood shops and restaurants. Hans has numerous maps and pamphlets offering information about both the community and other Seattle regions. He mentioned a great restaurant for breakfast (Roxy's), and we enjoyed it so much we ate there twice!
I heartily recommend this location for a relaxed weekend in one of the most unique neighborhoods in Seattle!
We had a good stay at Hans appartment.the sunny room was nice,en-suite bathroom very suitable for us and the connection to the Restaurants/Bars in fremont just perfect.the room was clean and access as well as check-in/-out really easy. the communication with Hans and Heidi was nice but rather minimal,though we totally understand that they need their privatsphere on weekends. We kept private too,so it was perfectly fine :) a good experience all-in-all.
Hans was super responsive before and during our stay. The room was very large and comfortable and having a private bathroom was definitely a reason for choosing to stay with Hans. The area is a quick walk to the heart of the Fremont district and not far away from the bus line that runs downtown. I would definitely stay here again.
Hans & Heidi's place in Fremont was the perfect hub for exploring Seattle - absolutely great location. The listing was as described, very tidy, and had everything you could need (we really appreciated the washer and dryer). Hans is very easy to contact and was really flexible with our changing travel plans. As stated in the title, this room is very sunny in the mornings, which is fine if you're like us and get up early, but if you like a sleep-in, this room might not be for you.
Hans war sehr nett und hat uns viele Tipps gegeben, was wir in Seattle alles angucken können. Hatten wir irgendwelche Fragen, war er gerne bereit diese zu beantworten und uns zu helfen.
Die Unterkunft war sehr gut gelegen, sodass wir in nur ca. 15 mitten in Downtown waren.
Leider haben wir ihn bei unserer Ankunft nicht gesehen, aber er war bereit den Schlüssel für uns zu hinterlegen, sodass wir dennoch in das Zimmer konnten.
Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt wirklich genossen und können das Zimmer nur weiterempfehlen!
A lovely spare bedroom in a great location in Fremont, close to a couple of handy bus routes and a bunch of good breweries. Hans and Heidi were relaxed hosts, busy with their own schedules and happy to let us get on with ours.
