About Teresa Simon

City Haven II was built in response to the positive feedback we received from the original City Haven (vrbo Listing 585829) which is located right next door! These homes are part of a love story that started back in 2004 when I purchased this house. The following year, my now husband moved from New York and bought the house next door. 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. We fell in love! The man who bought the house next door married the girl next door (me!). Two kids and a few years later, we kept the homes a rentals and moved a few blocks North. I left my job at Microsoft and we started buffing, remodeling, scraping and decorating these homes we've come to love. City Haven II is the result of a recent remodel that's turned this old 1920's Craftsman into a modern beauty with period charm. 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 2004

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!

                                                Clean, well built, cozy little house.

                                                Shea M.

                                                Great time here. Decided to bring meals back here because it was nicer and more comfortable than most resteraunts in Seattle.

                                                Beautiful home in an amazing location when staying in Seattle!

                                                Tiffany R.

                                                This is the second visit to City Haven II and we are already looking to book our next stay. The home is in walking distance to great coffee, restaurants, bus lines and the zoo! Wonderful place to stay with families or weekend away.

                                                Beautiful Home in a great neighborhood.

                                                Karen J.Vancouver ,Wa

                                                Beautiful and comfortable home with everything you need to have a wonderful and relaxing getaway.

                                                Very beautiful, comfortable and centrally located craftsman style jewel of a home!

                                                Amy S.

                                                Such treat to stay here! The homeowner has really gone out of her way to provide all the extra touches that make a guest feel special.

                                                It was was a wonderful place to look forward to coming back to after long and adventure filled days exploring Seattle. We took advantage of the homes beautiful and well stocked kitchen and made dinner at the house most nights. We also enjoyed the bathrooms heated floors and gas fireplace in the living room that took the chill out of the evenings and mornings. There was plenty of space for our family of 5 to spread out and play games and puzzles in the cozy living room.

                                                The location put us equal distance to many of the sites we wanted to visit while there. There is a designated off-street parking space. There are also front and back yard seating areas to enjoy good weather. It was close to lots of local cafes and restaurant spots.

                                                The only downsides are that there is not really a good view and it was located on a busy street. But as we were gone during the day, this did not detract from our experience. Also, the bedrooms might benefit from having some blackout curtains as there is a motion light located near one of the bedrooms, but that also did not detract from our overall really great experience.

                                                Thank you very much! I would stay here again if we visit Seattle.

                                                Luxurious, clean, and comfortable

                                                Sherri M.

                                                Loved our stay, exactly what we needed. Would love to stay here again. Very comfy beds. Super nice host. Was able to walk to the zoo with two kids easy.

                                                Excellent VRBO!

                                                Ellie M.

                                                The location is brilliant, the property is both charming and fully equipped with everything you might need and the service from Teresa is on point! This is our 2nd stay in one of the City Haven units and I have already booked an upcoming trip later in the year at City Haven II. I highly recommend this place!
