This is a private master bedroom suite that has a private full bath and walk-in closet. It's furnished with a queen bed, desk, chair, and night stand. 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.
-Skylight with retractable shade
-No adjacent bedrooms / lots of space and privacy.
-House has a very new, open, clean, and minimalist feel.
-Full access to the furnished kitchen, which has up-to-date appliances.
-You can use the washer and dryer, with detergent provided free.

-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.

Public transport is really great! You can get to a lot of Seattle without any transfers.
-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 line 358: fastest way downtown if you don't mind a slightly longer walk.
-Lines 28, 40, and 26 are a 10-minute walk down the hill.
-There is free street parking on the street and all around the neighborhood.
I'm looking for guests who use common sense, are clean, and are respectful of the room and all common spaces.
Smoking and pets aren't permitted.
-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 :)
Space was nice and clean, location was central and there was no problem getting access. Overall a good experience and solid value.
Great deal if you're on a budget. Plenty of privacy even though you're sharing someone's home. Good neighborhood, good host.
I enjoyed my stay with Hans and Heidi. The room and private bath was great and the bed was very comfortable. The place is clean and in a great location. I would definitely recommend staying with Hans and Heidi.
Nice room with private bathroom and comfortable bed. Hans wasn't around during our stay, but he left clear instructions for retrieving the keys and finding our room. Fremont's a great neighbourhood with some amazing restaurants nearby. I would stay here again.
Hans has a great house. It was located in a great neighborhood. I could easily walk or get a bus anywhere I wanted to go. Hans had a lot of maps and information for us and we had a great time. The house was clean and warm and the bed was super comfy. We will come again.
I was traveling with a mother and daughter team of friends to my sister's for Thanksgiving in Green Lake, and was thrilled to find this place in upper Fremont! The place was a peaceful retreat from all the family hub-bub. There was also a nice buffer between the other bedrooms, and the shared space, living room and kitchen, was pleasantly open.
Hans is laid back and mild mannered. He made it very easy to access the place while he was traveling, and I'm glad we got to chat with him a little bit before heading back to Portland.
Thanks for opening your home to us, Hans!
Hans was my first experience with Airbnb and I have to say, a great ambassador of the service. He shares my love of clean minimalistic spaces, with just the things you need and nothing else. His communication was superb and I always felt like I could get a hold of him. The master bedroom was beautiful and the bed very soft and comfortable. Everything was provided and the fully stocked kitchen was a nice touch. Would highly recommend his place to anyone looking for a place. NOVEMBER 2013

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.
