The cottage is laid out for many different type of travelers including families, two couples traveling together and business people traveling alone or with a colleague.

Downstairs in the daylight basement is a colorful family room with standard height (8 foot) ceilings. Also in the family room is a large desk that would be very functional as a home office if you needed to work while in Seattle. High speed wireless internet is available throughout the house. Down the hall you'll find another large bedroom with a queen size bed and separate sitting area with two comfy chairs. Perfect for curling up with a book. Off the hall is a full size bathroom with a bathtub and plenty of light from the rain glass window. At the end of the hall is the utility room with full size front load washer and dryers.

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 Seattle

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 place for a family, comfortable and great entertaining space.

  • 4 of 5

We loved the dining area and living room; great place to have breakfast or visit while the kids were playing, and once kids were in bed great for a games night. Comfortable and clean place with rec space on both floors, great for us with our two young kids. Great pizza restaurants nearby. Would stay here again!

Great house in a great neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect house for a family of 4 adults (grandparents and parents) and 2 children. Plenty of room--the downstairs "playroom" was an added bonus--plus a backyard to spread out in. Also an awesome park 1/2 block away. It was cozy, but never felt crowded. Central to everything we wanted to do. We hope to stay here every time we return to Seattle. Loved it!

Home is spacious and tastefully updated. We had all we needed to make our Reunion Birthday Party festive. The downstairs family room provided games and puzzles for the little ones. The upstairs living/dining room was roomie and comfortable . The home was clean and the kitchen had all the necessary utensils for breakfast, lunch & dinner. Beds are comfy too. We Thank you & Hope to come back in the summer when we can use the bar-b-q

Sweet cottage. Clean and Plenty of room for 4 adults and a 3 year old. Nice neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

This worked out really well for us. Having a kitchen and laundry room and being close to my daughter who was getting married made it a wonderful experience. I would definitely come back and stay in this cottage again. Easy to get around lots of sites to see

Perfect little home

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with my Mom who is in her 80's and the lack of stairs to the entrance was nice added bonus. Private back yard, clean and convenient. I would stay here again!

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.
