Property Details

Updated: Sep 12, 2014
King bed, pull out couch, fully equipped kitchen! Sleeps up to 4

WE TAKE CREDIT CARDS - you can book your stay via your credit card on this VRBO site! Why stay at a hotel when you can rent a cozy house for less than most hotel rooms?

Our rental home is located on Aurora Ave N (Rt 99!) between 46th Ave N and 47th Ave N. We are walking distance to the Woodland Park Zoo and are located in Fremont.

This is the lower area of a house and is 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, living room (has pull out Queen size sleeper couch), kitchen (seats 4), backyard & free parking (rates below). Our home is located in the Fremont neighborhood in Seattle and is located on one of the two main roads in Seattle - Route 99.

Living Room: flat screen TV, Cable TV, pull-out queen couch-bed, coffee table

Bedroom: small bath - king bed, closet

Bathroom: 1 tub/shower bathroom with toilet and sink

Kitchen: Equipped for self-catering with fridge, oven/stove, microwave, dish washer and utensils/cooking pans, dishes, etc and 4 person round table with 4 chairs

Parking: home has driveway and there is easy/close/free parking on both 46th Ave N and 47th Ave N.

LIVING AREA IS ABOUT 450SQFT. EXCELLENT FOR A COUPLE OR A COUPLE AND CHILD.

The neighborhood of Fremont district boasts of over 50 eateries: 17 bakeries and cafes, and 17 listed bars and pubs! Whether it's The Flying Apron, a gluten-free bakery), or Simply Desserts (possibly the best cake shop in the world!), or an authentic pizzeria at Via Tribunali, you'll find it's all in your neighborhood. So is the Puget Consumer Co-op, a wonderful natural foods grocery that is amply stocked with everything from wine to ice-cream.

And then there is the shopping: bookstores, boutiques galore, music and flower shops, and the farmers market. The Burke Gilman Trail (42 miles in unbroken length!), wonderful for biking or walking, is a short walk away and borders the scenic water-way between Lake Union and the Puget Sound. This provides a wonderful in-city spot for picnicking, outside reading, or people and boat watching. In addition, minutes from your door is the famous Fremont Troll, the quaint Fremont Public Library. And the Nectar Lounge is close by, as one of the many nightlife spots

If you want to explore outside of Fremont, just step outside and a bus stop will take you where you need to go

Comfortable and with a Great Location

  • 4 of 5
This was a great property for us during a week-long stay in Seattle. We needed to be in Ballard mostly, so the closeness to that was great. My biggest concern, based on the previous comments, was the busyness of Aurora out front but...no, it took like 5 minutes to figure out how that worked and 5 minutes to get used to the car sounds. Seriously, it was easy.

Great place, very comfortable for three people. I would stay again.

Great Location

Outstanding house and perfect location in/out of Seattle, Ballard and Wallingord. Only challenged by the 1 way access on Aurora avenue, once you figure out the neighborhood "cut streets" you are all set.

Perfect location

  • 4 of 5
The apartment is in a perfect location. You can go around anywhere around Seattle within 20 minutes. It's close to the gas station and few blocks away from convenient store store and restaurants. The apartment is really nice and clean. You can hear the occupants on the other side of the apartment when they are Around during the day but it's fairly quiet at night. We had a hard time using their driveway as parking because our car is low but it's not their fault anyways there were lots of street parking available. The bus stop is 1 minute away which was very convenient. I really enjoyed our stay.

Good times, clean livin.

  • 4 of 5
Very clean, large and comfortable space. Great kitchen, large comfortable bed and cool dinning room table. Cable and WIfi really wrapped it up. We had one problem the first night we were there but Gia was on it and had it repaired the next day!

Photos where exactly as the place appeared, the place was spotless and stoked with the necessaries...

Quiet despite being right on Aurora, getting in and out of the private drive was not as difficult as I thought it would be (the bus lane made it much easier). Close to all the amenities, and quick to get around.

I would recommend Gia's to anyone looking for a clean roomy and affordable 1 bedroom!

Short Notice Stay

  • 5 of 5
My family required lodging in the North Seattle area due to a family emergency. Geo accepted our request and provided all amenities as advertised. The location was close to other family in the area, the hospital and places to eat. The property was very clean and had all of the necessary kitchen/dining/sleeping/TV-Cable/WiFi that we needed. Great for a couples get away, or family of 4 (w/sleeper couch) outing/vacation.

Cute Seattle cottage

  • 4 of 5
With only one week before Labor Day weekend it was nearly impossible to find a reasonably priced hotel for my short 2 night stay for the early days of the week. However, at the suggestion of a friend, I was able to find this great little one bedroom house centrally located to downtown and some of Seattle's best neighborhoods. We were within walking distance of the Woodland Park Zoo (AWESOME considering I had my 6 yr old son with me), and short driving distances from downtown, Ballard, Fremont, Wallingford, and Greenlake neighborhoods - all of which offer great dining and shopping options!

The house had a nice modern decor and was simply but aptly furnished. Although my son and I really only needed a place to sleep, it was nice to have a living area so we could just sit back, watch a little t.v. and relax.

My only complaint was the location of the driveway to the house. It sits on a major road/highway and is at a steep angle. We didn't get in till very late our first night so it didn't occur to me to back my rental car in so that leaving in the morning wouldn't be so nerve-wrecking. (Backing out into morning traffic took a lot of patience!) I wound up parking just around the corner in the neighborhood the second day and then backed into the driveway my last night so getting out would be easier. It was a little noisy in the morning with the traffic, but not unbearable. Found it was easy to tune out.

The property owner was also really great about communicating. Although I'm really familiar with Seattle, when I Google mapped the house location, the directions weren't accurate. I was able to determine how to get there only by using the map included on homeaway.com. I contacted the property owner to confirm driving directions and she responded right away. Also, one of smoke alarms started beeping in the morning and she was quick to respond about taking a look at it.

Overall my stay was great! The location was perfect for my needs and the price was better than reasonable.

Amenities

From the Owner

Many of the lovely families that stay with us email us (after their stay) with great things to say! - especially because of the location (only 5 blocks from the Seattle Zoo) and food across the street/coffee shops only 5 blocks West of the house (all walking distance). The home is on Aurora Ave N - which is a main road in Seattle (and one of the perks of the location). This is an urban environment, not a rural location, however, so keep that in mind! Our home is 1.5 miles from Pike Place Market (and downtown Seattle). The home also has free private driveway parking and double pane windows. The studio area of the home - which is 450sqft - has been fully remodeled with brand new floors, paint - and all new furniture (in January of 2013). All of our furniture is Crate and Barrel furniture; we focus on 'clean, simple, and comfortable' for the feel of our home. We have opted toward a contemporary (rather than thrift store decorated) decorating style.
