About Sarah Chamberlain

We are a family of 4 and have owned this home since December of 2006. We have done a number of renovations on the property over the years and have decided to take on the significant project of redoing the basement, bringing it down to the foundation and slab on grade and starting fresh.

Sarah Chamberlain purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Sarah Chamberlain chose Fremont

We love the location of our home and we know that you will too. The house is tucked into a quiet nook of Upper Fremont, yet has immediate access to several major thoroughfares and countless amenities.

Friendly hosts, great location

  • 4 of 5

We spent a few months here last year, as we were looking for a house to buy. The unit is on the lower level, but there are enough windows to make it seem open, and it was really well equiped for cooking, laundry, and TV internet connections. The location can't be beat, close to Green Lake, UW, not that far from downtown Seattle, and Fremont is a unique and colorful neighborhood.

Jeff and Sarah and their two kids are a nice family, and they are accessible for whatever you might need. We had a couple of unusual requirements, and they found a way to accommodate with no problem. Sometimes the biggest challenge was getting up early, as it is super comfortable and quiet, not much street noise. With kids and pets there is a little overhead noise, but it never lasts too long. I'd recommend this for a short or long term stay.

Seattle getaway

  • 4 of 5

Overall great place. We arrived to a beautiful basement apartment that had all the amenities you could need and more. Sarah added wonderful personal touches that made us feel extra welcome. The location is wonderful, we walked to the zoo which is just a couple blocks away and there are great restaurants and markets within walking distance. It is a basement apartment so you can hear footsteps and voices from the main house but it's to be expected from a basement. Overall a great place.

Would definitely rent again

  • 5 of 5

The suite was immaculate and very well equipped. The owners, Sarah & Jeff are very welcoming and helpful regarding information about the Fremont neighbourhood and Seattle in general. There were three adults in our group and the suite was very accommodating for all. Staying in the Woodland Park Suite is like living in an IKEA showroom. The location is convenient for the zoo and accessible to downtown Seattle. We will definitely rent again when we return to Seattle.

Very nice

  • 4 of 5

Clean, comfortable, well-equipped. Convenient location close to Fremont, Green Lake, Woodland Park Zoo, and north Seattle. Close to Aurora Ave and Fremont Ave for easy access north and south, but in a quiet residential neighborhood with easy street parking. Nice hosts.

Very nice place, close to Seattle

  • 4 of 5

It is a newly renovated basement apartment that is sparkling clean and everything including kitchen ware was new from IKEA. We enjoyed the location in Fremont which was very close to our daughter's place. The owner welcomed us and helped describe where to visit and eat in Seattle and how to get there. This was very helpful. We enjoyed the small bottles of wine and beer and the coffee and tea. Our adult son flew in for the week we stayed there and slept on the sofa in the living room that turns into a double bed. He was very thankful for the additional memory foam mattress pad to make the bed more comfortable. We really appreciated the washer and dryer available for us to use. The only surprise was the $1500.00 deposit fee that was totally refundable if there was no damage to the place. Since we never have damaged a place, it didn't seem necessary to lose the lesser security deposit fee by VBRO. So we paid the $1500. It seems an extreme fee by VBRO. (I hope we have been refunded it. We are still traveling at this time and have not checked our account.) Other than that, we recommend this place and may come again another year if our daughter and son-in-law are still living in Fremont Seattle. You will like the place.
