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.

-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 :)
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.
My friend and I really enjoyed staying at Han's house. The house is quiet and clean. We could get a sense of security and we slept very well in the house. The bed was soft and comfortable. Besides, the location is convenient to get buses to downtown. Hons couple is also nice and helpful!
I enjoyed my stay in Fremont with Hans and Heidy. The room and facilities were very comfortable and convenient to downtown Seattle. I particularly enjoyed the sound of rain on the roof! Thanks again!
The accommodations were very nice. The place was quiet and very clean. It was a nice surprise to find all the amenities you would expect to find in a hotel.
Hans has a beautiful apartment in a quiet, beautiful part of Seattle. The room itself is comfortable and sunny and exactly like the pictures and it's a short walk from the apartment to shops and restaurants and parks. Hans was also super communicative and made sure we could get ahold of him if we had any questions or needed anything during our stay.
10/10; Would absolutely stay again!
Hans is a quiet but friendly gentleman who welcomed me into their home. The room was bright, spacious, and clean, with it's own bathroom and closet. The bed was quite comfortable. Both guest rooms are on the third floor, so be prepared to climb some indoor stairs.
