Beautiful and spacious suite in an ideal location.

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay in Tacoma. The suite is brand new, spacious and even has a water view. Many restaurants and attractions are within walking distance or a short drive. We will definitely be back for future trips to Tacoma.

All the comforts of home

  • 5 of 5

We have nothing but great things to say about our stay here. The apartment was clean and comfortable, and just as shown in the pictures. We are a family of 5 (parents and 3 teen/20's kids) and there was plenty of room for us to all spread out and relax.

What a great location, easy parking right in front of the house and a view to die for! There is a fully stocked kitchen, bathroom with necessities and an added bonus of a laundry room for us to use to freshen up our clothes for the end of our trip. The owners were awesome, quick to respond to our questions and had thought of everything. I would HIGHLY recommend this home!

Plenty of room for myself, my husband and 6 year old. Another adult could have comfortably shared also.

Very clean and attended to with love and care. Comfy beds. Great place for my boy to run around outside in the fenced back yard.

Elizabeth had great communication and was always available by text even though she happened to be out of town while we were there. Her texts were always answered within minutes even when my husband somehow locked us out on the first day she had a solution and got us right back in!

Will definitely stay her again!!

Unique location near Old Town Tacoma

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely property at the top of the hill from Old Town Tacoma. With the high temperatures that Tacoma was experiencing during our stay, it was quite delightful to be in this cooler beautifully remodeled basement apartment. We did quite fine with a fan in front of the window by the kitchen sink. Plenty of floor space to move around in the main area. The owners and the young children were very quiet and minimal noise from them walking on the floor above. Wonderful, huge screen TV. The refrigerator unit was adequate space for our needs. There is no freezer but that was not an issue for us. The linens and towels are very nice quality. Very well equipped kitchen for our cooking needs. It was exciting to see a mother deer and fawn in the back yard having their breakfast. Very nice, safe neighborhood for taking walks and exploring, can be hilly in spots. Great view of the Sound. Elizabeth was great and responded promptly to any questions. With it being a shared driveway it is recommended not to use their driveway to park. We never had any problems with parking on the street in front of their home. The walk down the driveway to the apartment is on a decline. This can be challenging if one has knee problems. We highly recommend this location.

Owner's Response: Thank you Cathy! We do have a deep freezer available for guests off the main room, but the kitchen has only a refrigerator. If anyone is disabled (or any other need)and needs to park on the driveway we typically arrange for us to be off the driveway during your stay! So please ask, happy to oblige! Otherwise we have extensive street parking which is always available.

Cute place

  • 3 of 5

The place is beautiful! There are a few things that made our stay uncomfortable.

1-There are no curtains on the French doors leading out to a common backyard where 2 young boys play and jumpbon the trampoline and look in the windows. We asked about putting something up and was told the want the natural light coming in the basement. Kind frustrating cause I don’t want your kids peeping in on our privacy!

2-As I mentioned 2 little boys, think of your stay as it would be in an apartment. Kids running above you (you are in the basement) yelling and crying. 6:30am was a little early for us a couple mornings.

3-There is no freezer in the main kitchen area (not a full kitchen) they did share their personal freezer with us.

4-It was nice to have a queen bed in the bedroom, but both my husband and I kept rolling to the middle (may need a new mattress), i ended up in a different bed cause the queen was not comfortable in the bedroom and there was no curtains or privacy for me and my husband to sleep on the other queen bed.

Great location, with shops and restaurants close by. Never had an issue with parking close to the house on the street.

Owner's Response: This isn’t an accurate explanation of events at all. The guest complained about the lack of Curtains in the entertainment space of the suite and the children playing soon after their arrival. The windows cover the back wall of the suite and are reflective so my 4 & 6 year old can’t see in the suite anyway, though guests could see them Playing. There is not a way to use curtains without obstructing natural light and ocean views. I offered them to get out of their rental agreement with no Obligation since it made them Uncomfortable which they immediately refused. I had the boys Come in nearly immediately and they were not in the yard the remainder of the stay. Our yard is elevated so no one else can see into the suite. We have curtains in the bedroom but we do not have curtains in the kitchen or living room. The guests did not complain about the bed to us during their stay though we haven’t had any complaints. We could have switched out mattresses as there are two queen beds in the suite. As for the noise, it very clearly states that you are in a family home, in an above ground basement suite, thus you will hear our noise. However for 3/4 of their stay we weren’t even home except to sleep. Our suite is sizable and is under the entirety of our home so you will hear us. You can not find a comparable space in Tacoma for $100 and hotel rooms in our area range from 2-$300 for much smaller space. Our children do play in their own backyard but are typically not outside before 10am or after 7pm and in this case based on the complaint we did not have them play outside the remainder of the stay.
