About Ronda

We are true Seattlites and know the area very well. When not living in Seattle, we can often be found traveling the world from South America to Asia and beyond. When traveling we often stay in vacation rentals ourselves so it is important to us that you feel as at home in our house as we do when we travel and find the PERFECT place.

Ronda purchased this house in 2013

Why Ronda chose Northwest

This property allows for the enjoyment of all that Seattle has to offer. Located near the very fun Fremont and Ballard neighborhoods, you can go out and walk home. Alternatively the house is perfectly setup for a quiet night in after a long day of seeing the sights!

What makes this house unique

Private with a great layout for one or two couples. This house is super convenient to downtown and all that Seattle has to offer!

Guestbook comments from the owner

House feels lovely! Very comfortable and spacious for my whole family. Kids loved the downstairs and big backyard. There is a great playground only a block away. The light and space from the backyard into the kitchen is a huge asset. The location is convenient to Ballard where there are a number of great restaurants and shops. All in all, I recommend!

The house looks just like the photos, very charming home!

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the cottage. It was represented very much like the photos. I would have given it fours stars if only a few minor things had been changed. I'll list in order of noticing them. There were almost no hangers in the closet which meant that my clothes were stacked in the closet instead of hanging up. Odd but not a deal breaker since I was only there for a few days. The furnishings are nice but the sheets would NOT stay on the bed. That was a little frustrating each night. The dishwasher was not attached to the cabinet which made me a bit nervous when running it but it did not leak or cause problems so again, odd but not a deal breaker. The one thing that really concerned me was that my son said that when the shower upstairs was running the vent in the downstairs bath dripped, so there is some type of leak going on. So again, very charming house and a nice location, short uber trip from Seattle downtown. It just needs a little TLC and minor maintenance to be a 4star place.

Older cottage, fun 'hood

  • 4 of 5

We love the Fremont area, tons of dining & shopping options, close to everything. Since the cottage is older, challenges come with its charm; for instance some of the old wood windows won't stay up and have no screens. We had to plunge the upstairs toilet and later the ejection pump went out and flooded part of downstairs. Ronda responded promptly & even adjusted our bill. Upstairs space is cute & cozy, kitchen well equipped, lovely deck overlooking backyard. I would suggest a mirror somewhere other than the bath, as we had 4 adults trying to get ready for wedding events.

Downstairs is a bit awkward, and the fold out couch was just adequate for the 3-year-old in our party. A blow up mattress was alluded to in the cottage notebook; we never found one. Kids loved the park down the block. Overall a good stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Again I am so sorry the ejector pump went out during your stay. You can never predict these things. We had it fixed immediately.

This is a fabulous place to stay when in Seattle

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved our week in the Solstice Cottage. Perfect location convenient to everywhere. We used both our rental car and Uber to get around. We were never more than 15 minutes to anything. The home is well maintained and has everything you would want in your own home including full cooking utensils as well as enough serving trays to display a 12 course meal on the very nice dining room table. The beds and linens all first rate. The home is ideal for families and the property is lovely. The neighborhood and neighbors all delightful. Our host made it easy to access and check out. Will absolutely rent this home again on our next visit to Seattle. This was a great vacation find.

The cottage is located in the vibrant Fremont neighborhood, the self proclaimed Center of the Known Universe! The neighborhood is full of traditional family homes about 5-10 minutes north of the downtown core by car. Seattle Center including the Experience Music Project, Science Fiction Museum and Space Needle can be reached quickly. The Seattle waterfront is less than 10 minutes by car as well.

Within walking distance of the cottage are numerous restaurants and bars as well as local grocery stores. Woodland Park Zoo is about 10 blocks north of the house on top of the ridge.

Green Lake park is a short drive over the ridge from the house and has a running and biking trail around it which makes for a great morning or evening outing.

The house has a great central location for exploring Seattle as well as the Fremont, Ballard and Phinney Ridge neighborhoods.
