Great location. Walking distance to the heart of Fremont. (Runners/Walkers be sure and check out the Burke Gillman trail.)
The house is comfy with a nice covered deck and an outdoor kitchen. And we really enjoyed having the hot tub to soak in each day after exploring Seattle.
We rented this house for a month while we were looking for a house to buy. The hosts are super friendly and met with us on our first day to show us how to use all of the appliances and stuff. The house itself is cute with a big queen bedroom in the basement, a queen bedroom on the first floor, and an office / full bedroom on the first floor. The kitchen is super well stocked with equipment. They even had a cupcake pan so we could make cupcakes for my sons birthday! The outdoor grill area and deck is awesome when it is not raining. It is a very close walk to lots of restaurants, bars, and shops. The only annoying thing is that the house is located off of a steep driveway. It takes some practice to back down it confidently. But if you are totally freaked out by that there is a lot of street parking. And being off of the street makes the house quieter, so we really didn't mind. One of our favorite things about the house is that they have a great picture of the house from the early 1900s when it was sitting all by itself. It makes you feel like you are tied into Seattle history. We would definitely recommend this house to our friends or rent it again ourselves!
The place was everything we hoped for, great location near Fremont and Ballard, the hosts were great very helpful came to meet us a little early as we needed to get to an appointment soon after arriving.
Rose & Glen's house is wonderful. It was exactly as advertised - charming and fun. Our five adults were very comfortable and happy there for 10 days. The large and secluded deck is the perfect hang-out spot. The location is prime: walking distance to all the cool stuff Fremont has to offer and with easy access to downtown, UW, and highways that take you to beautiful hiking and other outdoor activities all around the area. I'm really glad we chose Rose and Glen's house.
We really enjoyed this place. It was nice, clean, and private. Rose and Glen were very welcoming and informative. It is really convenient to have recycling at the house. The hot tub worked just fine. We liked the coffee shop across the way that we could walk to. We would stay here again if we had the chance and would recommend to our friends.
We arrived after about sixteen hours in transit and Glen was at the property to greet and show us around which was much appreciated. This old house has a lot of character and has clearly been a labour of love for Glen and Rose. It would rate as 'well loved' in UK parlance.The property is well equipped. There is a large deck at the back and a hot tub, which we made full use of. In terms of location, the Burke-Gilman trail is a few minutes walk and you can use this as an alternative route into Fremont, the main route being Leary Way, a busy four lane road which the deck partly overlooks. Consequently there is road noise during working hours but inside the house you don't hear it at all. Fremont is only ten minutes walk and buses 28 or 40 stop on Leary Way taking you downtown in 20-25 minutes. Probably the only change we would make is a visitor information pack about basic domestic appliances and local travel/restaurants but most people will work things out pretty easily. A tip for UK families with teens, the USA licensing laws prevent sale of alcohol to under 21s and this rules out meals at many establishments. Norm's Diner along Leary is an option. If you visit the Locks we liked Bitteroot a small bar in Ballard where again under 21s can dine with parents enjoying a beer. Overall we enjoyed our four days stay. Thanks again.

About the Host, Rose & Glen
Our names are Glen and Rose Marie we are a retired couple from Seattle. We have a home in Montezuma and have lived the "pura vida" 6 to 7 months in Costa Rica every year since 2007. We also love the north west and have homes in Seattle and Victoria, BC which we just cannot give up so we have turned them into vacation rentals so we can enjoy them when we are around. Since we have vacation rentals you can be assured that we will treat your place with respect and leave it in clean condition.
I love to garden, cook, travel, getting to know interesting people form all over the world, and also enjoying the beauty of the places were we live! Hope you will enjoy our homes as much as we do!
