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!

Perfect in Seattle

  • 5 of 5

City Haven is the perfect place to stay when visiting Seattle. You feel like you are in a tree house up high with great vistas! The decor is cozy and charming. We enjoyed our breakfast every morning with a view of the mountains in the lovely kitchen. City Haven is spotless. Every detail is thought of including soap and shampoo dispensers in the shower. It is only a few minutes walk to a great coffee shop and market. It is a longer but very nice walk to the center of Fremont. You can just go across the street and catch the bus downtown. My favorite thing is the adorable little window next to the kitchen sink!! Keyless entry makes life much simpler for checking in and out and never having to worry where the key is!! All in all a perfect spot!!!!

SO great to be back!

  • 5 of 5

It has been 3 years since we last stayed at "our apartment" and it was just as we remembered: cozy, warm, convenient. It is so easy to get to anywhere in the city and we were able to walk to our favourite coffee shop each morning! Great neighbors too!

We were made to feel welcome immediately as there was a chalkboard note welcoming us back...nice touch :)

We will return again and again.

Perfect All Around

  • 5 of 5

This property is exactly as shown. Super clean with everything you need for your stay. We loved the location: one block or ten blocks to the grocery store; one block to the express bus to downtown; close to the I5. The bed was very comfortable as well. We will definitely stay here again next trip to Seattle! Thanks!

Awesome Place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at City Haven. There is no reason to ever stay downtown Seattle again. The walkable safe neighbourhood of Freemont was wonderful to explore. We went to Jazz Alley one evening and it was an easy drive into the city. Well stocked and very nice furnishings. Towels plush and soft. Having Starbucks coffee for the morning was so nice. Thank you Teresa for allowing us to check in early. Highly recommend!
