Really fun neighborhood, near the exciting Fremont area! The room was great, there was a desk, a private bathroom, clean sheets, towels, shampoo -- it was just like staying in a hotel!
I didn't get to meet Graham & Maria when I was there unfortunately, but on the positive side things were very quiet around the house!
Wonderful space, clean, private, quiet, easy to contact, friendly and comfortable. I had to extend my reservation by a day and they were very accommodating.
Great overall experience. Beautiful, big place. Quiet, comfortable room. Nice bed. Never met the host. Private bathroom was wonderful to have. Shower could have been cleaner, but besides that awesome!
While my wife and I did not actually meet Graham or Maria due to opposite schedules, Graham was easy to contact via text message and responded to texts promptly. The room is definitely as advertised with its own private bathroom, everything was clean, and access to the home via the electronic keypad was very easy. Our only complaint, and it may have been due to long days and getting back to the room late, was that parking was somewhat difficult to find. We lucked out the first night of our stay and found a spot right in front of the house, but the next night we had to drive around the neighborhood for about 20 minutes before finding a spot, and if cars are parked on both sides of the street, it effectively becomes a one lane road. That is no fault of Graham or Maria, but might be something to consider if you have a larger car. Aside from the parking we had no complaints and wouldn't have a problem staying with Graham and Maria again.
Great location, great host. Graham is super friendly, and has plenty of suggestions to get you started if you're there to explore the area. Location is very conveniently located-- Quick/easy walk to great places to eat or grab coffee & work, and I'd often walk just a bit further to "downtown" Fremont for microbreweries/even more places to work. Also very easy (literally, down the street) access to SR-99 if you want to drive to downtown Seattle etc.
Clean room, comfortable bed, bathroom/closet in-room, and door code to get in. It's like having your own townhouse. Would definitely stay here again.
Graham was an excellent host. He maintained consistent communication. He provided great hospitality which included a bagel breakfast with coffee, and restaurant recommendations within the area. The house is spectacular with a private bathroom in the bedroom, large living room, and beautiful kitchen. The place was furnished with the essential items. I was impressed by the cleanliness of the entire house. Overall, I enjoyed my stay with Graham at this location. Thanks Graham!
