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!

Cute, clean, convenient and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here as 2 couples. The split levels were so nice because we had our separate spaces. It was perfect. The beds were comfortable, there was coffee and we got to watch some of the Olympics on the TV. We would stay here again! Ps check out the Dish for breakfast! It was so good!!! The book of instructions has some great recommendations for restaurants. Thanks again!

Just as advertized

  • 4 of 5

Two couples stayed for three nights in January. The cottage was as it was advertised. Easy to get into and easy to leave. Clean. Kitchen and upstairs bathroom were nicely up-dated. (I did not see the downstairs bathroom.) Downstairs was a little cool, but upstairs was warm. Small, pleasant sitting room. Well priced for what you get. Neighbor seemed safe. We would do it again.

Comfortable, easy living house in great location!

  • 5 of 5

This lovely house suited my husband and me so well! We could have had guests over as there was an entire suite downstairs!! Very close proximity to my daughter and family, and the grandchildren loved that we were close to the park! Great leg work out up and down the hills. Didn't need a thing from the owners, binder on the table very informative and easy to follow. You must try Silence Heart Nest Cafe for breakfast and lunch! Excellent! Very clean and comfortable kitchen, bathrooms, furnishings! We went out for dinners (mostly to my daughters!) but the pots and pans looked good. We would like to rebook this house on our next trip to Seattle.

Cute little retreat

  • 5 of 5

The house is very conveniently located, within a few minutes of the Fremont district and other areas to explore and find great restaurants. The house is stocked with everything you need for an easy stay, including many games, books and supplies - such as a stroller and crib - that would make the space very convenient for families. It is clean and nicely decorated - very cozy and comfortable.

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.
