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 :)
The space was wonderful and private with it's own bath. Everything was clean, uncluttered, quiet, and the bed was quite comfortable. The location was perfect, close to shops in Fremont and Ballard.
Me and my dad have a perfect stay with hans and Heidi... They where very sweet and make us feel at home right away.. The house is very clean and it is in a very nice part of Seattle. Recommend 100% :))))
The room we stayed in at Hans place was a very good size with private bathroom. Express bus (E) into downtown Seattle was a short stroll away (about 5-7 minutes) and the overall stay was very enjoyable.
Once again a wonderful stay with Hans. A great location and wonderful accommodations. Thanks.
My wife and I stayed 2 nights. The room was quiet, clean, and had a private bathroom for our use. Very cozy king bed. We both used the writing desk for emails. Proximity to so many eateries and coffee shops was ideal. We travel frequently to Seattle from our home in Oregon and would book Han's Fremont home in a heartbeat.
Thanks again Hans. Great to meet Heidi also. Great location, room and hospitality.
The location was excellent, perfect for my first visit to Seattle and the Pacific Northwest. I was able to walk from the house to visit breweries, stores, Greenlake Park. It was in a quiet neighborhood in Fremont- yet a minute's walk to a vibrant town with interesting stores and restaurants.
The room and house were excellent. Hans and Heidi were both very friendly and accomodating. The room was very clean and very comfortable.
Thank you Hans!

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 occasionally rock climbing.
Countries I want to go back to: Bolivia, Guatemala
Some TV shows I like: Breaking Bad, Dexter, The Fullmetal Alchemist, The Pinky and the Brain
