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 Fremont

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!

                                      Great property

                                      SUSAN J.

                                      THis was the perfect location for staying near downtown and also exploring the surrounding areas. The property was nicely furnished and the owners were great.

                                      Liked everything about our stay, great house, amazingly excellent helpful and responsive management

                                      Travis B.

                                      Great overall experience, we will definitely stay again.

                                      Perfect location, near downtown Seattle and easy access to freeways.

                                      Anela P.

                                      City Haven is a quaint little 1 bedroom duplex apartment with a pullout coda in the living room. The apartment was well stocked with bedding linens, bath towels, kitchen towels, etc. the space of the apartment is used well and there is a place for everything so it’s easy to keep organized. The owner is organized and thorough. She checked in via tex twice but other than that I didn’t need her so didn’t see her. There are several stairs to get to the apartment so if you can’t navigate stairs then this place won’t work for you. It was, however, perfect for our family of four.

                                      Fabulous Quiet Haven

                                      Susan C.San Antonio

                                      This place is perfect. It is quaint, beautifully appointed, immaculately clean, and easy access to everywhere. My favorite is the little balcony where I drink my morning coffee even if it's raining. (Which it does, people, if you are coming to Seattle, just saying, haha.)The little nook where I set up my computer and get work done is a great little bonus. Teresa is so accommodating; she is a perfect hostess. I have stayed here more than once, and will do so again as soon as I get back to Seattle.

                                      This is our second stay at City Haven. We flew in for two shows at The Neptune. Perfect location for shopping, transportation and entertainment. Highly recommended!!

                                      Clean, sweet, helpful owner

                                      cate w.

                                      This place was perfectly located for our purposes. In Upper Fremont and walking distance to many things and also near a bus line. This place is very clean nicely appointed and very comfortable
