Modern/Stylish Studio in charming Fremont neighborhood

Bedrooms Studio
Space 800 sq. ft.
Property type apartment


About the property

1 Bedroom (studio), 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 3-4

About this space: This is a basement studio apartment with a full kitchen, bath, and queen sized bed. The studio comfortably sleeps 2 in a queen size bed, but there's a large sectional couch that will sleep a 3rd guest - or even a 4th if someone doesn't mind curling up on the Chaise lounge (e.g., a smaller guest). We have plenty of extra blankets and linens if you should need them. The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes and cookware if you have the urge to whip up a meal. We also have a french press for your coffee needs. Plenty of street parking available.

The full size, heated bathroom comes equipped with a large vanity/mirror and plenty of plush towels. Extra toiletries are available in the event you forget your go-to shampoo and body wash. Tired from running around the city all day? Please treat yourself to a relaxing bubble bath!

We have a flatscreen TV and XBOX for any relaxing couch time. You have access to Hulu, Netflix, and Amazon Instant Video for movies/shows on demand.

Sidenote for summer guests: Many places in Seattle do not have air conditioning. Beat the summer heat with this basement unit - it stays cooler than the other side of the pillow.

We live upstairs, but will stay out of your way. You have private access through the red side door with an assigned key pad code. There is no physical key to keep track of! Your code is valid for only the duration of your stay and will reset one hour after check out. If you need anything at all though, please feel free to contact via email, text, or simply knock on the door.

Getting Around: The bus system in Seattle is incredible and efficient. The bus stops closest to our house give you access to the 28 and 40 lines which go straight downtown and towards the Ballard neighborhood. We recommend downloading the app One Bus Away for bus schedules. We also love Uber and Lyft. With UberX, you can get downtown for less than $12.

About Reid Nelson

Hey there! We're a young professional couple in Seattle, WA that enjoys traveling anywhere and everywhere. We also love sharing our home.

We love outdoor adventures, live music and epicurean endeavors.

Reid Nelson purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Reid Nelson chose Northwest

The Fremont/Ballard neighborhood has always been our favorite of nook in Seattle. Situated next to the canals, it's got beautiful walking/biking trails (the Burke Gilman), excellent music venues / nightlife, and a wide variety of restaurants and boutiques. It's home of the Summer Solstice parade in June, Seattle's most popular street festival.

It's also just a hop skip and a jump away from downtown, with a bus stop directly across the street, and minimal traffic...making work commutes a breeze.

What makes this apartment unique

What I love about this property are our Evergreen trees and mountain views. It feels like you're in a foresty, mountain getaway - so much so that it's easy to forget you're in the city. The basement unit has limited views from the daylight windows - however a quick walk to a nearby park, and you'll get some phenomenal sunset views of the Olympic Mountains over downtown Ballard and the Canals.

Amazingly cozy spot in the heart of Fremont!

  • 5 of 5

First things first, I am a huge hotel snob! I love getting away to upscale locations and this place did not disappoint!! We were tired of th same old downtown Seattle "stay cations" and wanted to venture into a neighborhood that we've always loved but have never gotten the opportunity to stay in the heart of. A perfect find and right where we wanted to be! The bed was comfy, finishings were detailed and upscale, and the overall studio was immaculate! I can't recommend Reid and his property enough and thank him for his attentiveness mixed with the perfect amount of side door studio privacy. Thanks to this great studio I came home and ordered pillows and a comforter to match for our guest quarters.

Better than a Hotel!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 3 nights in July, perfect for a couple. Nicely updated accommodations with the comforts of home. Looks exactly like the photos, very clean with plenty of towels, shampoo/conditioner, etc. It is in a great location, only a few blocks from downtown Fremont with plenty of restaurants, bars, stores and a quick drive to downtown Seattle. Reid was great with communications and we did not have any issues during out stay. Our only recommendation would be a new mattress and some fluffier pillows.

Owner's Response: Thanks Jennifer! So happy to host you! The mattress was new as of 4 months ago, but definitely time to upgrade the pillows and will look into mattress toppers potentially!

Clean, Comfortable, and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely loved this studio! I am a clean freak/germaphobe and always spend the first half hour cleaning any room I stay in; I am thrilled that I did not feel the need to here. This apartment is exactly as pictured and is conveniently located to restaurants, bars, and grocery stores. I really appreciated the restaurant recommendations provided by Reid. He does an amazing job of stocking everything you may need while visiting. The French Press broke and within 24 hours, another one was provided to me. The only recommendation I have is to provide fluffier/thicker, newer pillows. Other than that, I would happily stay here again. Thanks for a great stay!

Perfect location. Close walk to shopping and dining. Owner was respectful, quiet and very quick to reply to every question. Property was spotless, comfy and very modern. If / when we return to Seattle, we'll be sure to stay here again.

Fremont is hip and charming. There are many eclectic restaurants and shops within walking distance. We particularly love the Sunday Farmers market.

We suggest checking out the Fremont Troll, Gas Works Park, and walking the Burke Gilman Trail.

Fremont is also minutes from the Ballard neighborhood. There are many great eats and shops there as well.

We're big foodies and provide a list of restaurants to try in the unit.
