About Teresa Simon

Let me tell you a secret about this house. It's been renovated with love, sweat and tears and it all started back in 2005 when my husband moved from New York and bought it. I lived next door and when we met, I asked him to move his garbage cans out of my driveway. But soon I started asking him to salsa dancing and then he asked me to dinner. And we fell in love. The man who bought this house married the girl next door (me!). Two kids and a few years later we kept the homes as rentals and moved a few blocks north.

I left my job at Microsoft and started buffing, remodeling, scraping and decorating this home we've come to love.

We're Team Simon and our whole family works to make this a place you'll love to call home for a while. We love it! And we hope you'll love it, too.

Teresa Simon purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Teresa Simon chose Seattle

We bought this home for the same reason you'll want to stay here.... close to Green Lake (swimming, paddle boats, golf)! Close to the Zoo (animals, outdoor summer concerts)! Grocery store 3 blocks away (last minute wine and snacks)! Right next to the express bus to downtown and close to all the great restaurants in Fremont (cook, schmook... let's go out to eat)! It's the perfect centralized hub to live like a local while still being close to everything the downtown area has to offer. Home away from home!

Wonderful flat!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Teresa's place during our visit to the Seattle area. The neighborhood is very cool with lots of restaurants, bars and shopping within walking distance. The easy access to the bus system is a real bonus!

A SEATTLE HOST WHO TAKES PRIDE IN HER RENTALS

  • 5 of 5

We (myself, husband, and adult daughter stayed at City Haven for eight nights in August and it was the perfect rental for us. Teresa is a wonderful host who obviously takes pride in renting out her properties. She was quick to respond to enquiries prior to our renting, about a week before our rental date she sent very helpful information about the apartment and area and gave the code for the keyless entry. Once inside the apartment we found it to be exactly as the photos, very clean, well equipped and comfortable. The location was great - no need for a car as public transportation is awesome! The Rapid E line just across the street gets you downtown in a jiffy! Other buses close to the apartment were equally as good. We also did a lot of walking - to the zoo, local restaurants, the Troll, Sunday market, etc. We would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Seattle - a wonderful apartment and location! Thank you Teresa!

We loved our 3 day stay at City Haven! The place was spacious, clean and comfy. The decor was warm and inviting. It was so nice to have complimentary coffee and tea. We would highly recommend a stay at City Haven. And make sure you take the walking tour of Fremont!
