About Ronda

We are true Seattlites and know the area very well. When not living in Seattle, we can often be found traveling the world from South America to Asia and beyond. When traveling we often stay in vacation rentals ourselves so it is important to us that you feel as at home in our house as we do when we travel and find the PERFECT place.

Ronda purchased this house in 2013

Why Ronda chose Fremont

This property allows for the enjoyment of all that Seattle has to offer. Located near the very fun Fremont and Ballard neighborhoods, you can go out and walk home. Alternatively the house is perfectly setup for a quiet night in after a long day of seeing the sights!

What makes this house unique

Private with a great layout for one or two couples. This house is super convenient to downtown and all that Seattle has to offer!

Guestbook comments from the owner

House feels lovely! Very comfortable and spacious for my whole family. Kids loved the downstairs and big backyard. There is a great playground only a block away. The light and space from the backyard into the kitchen is a huge asset. The location is convenient to Ballard where there are a number of great restaurants and shops. All in all, I recommend!

Great Little Find

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many different places in Seattle, and this is one I would love to use again. Enough space for our family of 5, very clean, and great older home charm. We loved the selection of movies and games downstairs too!

Soltice Cottage is Great for Seattle Stay

  • 4 of 5

My family and I very much enjoyed our three-day stay in Soltice Cottage in Fremont. The location is walking distance or a short drive to so many fun cafes, restaurants, and shops in both Ballard and Fremont. A great neighborhood for just walking around and also near easy transit downtown.

The house looks small from the street side, but we found it much roomier than expected and fine for six people, including two with walkers, to sit around, cook, eat, hang out. Kitchen is well-equipped with plenty of room to cook full meals and move around in. Large and lovely backyard with deck off kitchen and large bar-b-que would be great had the weather been sunny. Bedrooms and bathrooms on both levels were pleasant and well-maintained. Plenty of extra cosy quilts and Nest thermostat. Bottom level very separate and private from main floor if two separate groups are staying there.

Just a nice, well-kept up homey heritage house with furnishings of the era. Owner was one of the most accessible, (phone and e-mails) helpful and cooperative of those I have dealt with in previous rentals. Problem with TV was dealt with quickly by a friendly person sent by the owner in response to a phone call the night before. ("Press the reset button").

My Seattle family kept asking when I would come again and rent Solstice Cottage!

Clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We loved this home. It was older but super clean. The beds were very comfortable. We were with another couple and it was so nice to have a place to sit and visit. That being said with a bedroom and bath downstairs and another bed and bath on the main floor each couple had plenty of privacy. I would definitely stay here again.

Cute, clean, quaint

  • 4 of 5

This place was a great fit for our needs. The kitchen is a bit cluttered with things that aren't necessary while light on things that are. Owners could easily put a bit more into fixing small issues and making this a perfect stay, but overall it was clean and enjoyable.

Car: recommended

The cottage is located in the vibrant Fremont neighborhood, the self proclaimed Center of the Known Universe! The neighborhood is full of traditional family homes about 5-10 minutes north of the downtown core by car. Seattle Center including the Experience Music Project, Science Fiction Museum and Space Needle can be reached quickly. The Seattle waterfront is less than 10 minutes by car as well.

Within walking distance of the cottage are numerous restaurants and bars as well as local grocery stores. Woodland Park Zoo is about 10 blocks north of the house on top of the ridge.

Green Lake park is a short drive over the ridge from the house and has a running and biking trail around it which makes for a great morning or evening outing.

The house has a great central location for exploring Seattle as well as the Fremont, Ballard and Phinney Ridge neighborhoods.
