About Ervin & Christine E. Kraemer

Well traveled ourselves, we have made many trips around the world, at least 9 include trips to England but we are natives to the Pacific Northwest. We have three grown children and 3 small grandchildren and let's not forget our furry baby, a 5 lb Yorkie, Miss Chloe! We travel a bit for work and play so we know what it's like to want a nice, clean place to land at the end of a travel and touring.

Ervin & Christine E. Kraemer purchased this house in 2015

Why Ervin & Christine E. Kraemer chose Tacoma

This home was built in the early 1950's by Ervin's Grandfather and he purchased it in 2011 from the estate when Grandma passed away so it is dear to us! The apartment below the main house was not finished until recently so everything is brand new! We take pride in our vacation rental! We've stayed in some of the nicest hotels, lodges and bed & breakfasts around the world and we know how to provide a clean, well appointed space with stellar service! We also know that you work hard for your money and have no desire to charge above what a normal hotel in the Tacoma area would charge....even though you are getting much more! Avebury on Sunset is approximately 750 sq. ft. making it large enough, yet cozy.

What you should know:

-We have an indoor 5 lb Yorkie who is quiet but from time to time she announces someone is at the door, it's dinner time or welcomes us home. We have a private fenced garden for her out back.

-As mentioned, we have a 3 1/2 year old (almost 4), which means that from the hours of 7:30/8am - 7:30 at night it's possible you'll hear the pitter patter of tiny feet on occasion.

-Avebury is very nice and it has everything you would need. It is a strictly non-smoking property (in or outside of the residence)

- We travel. A lot. That said, we have outdoor security camera's and if we are not, we have an emergency contact and housekeeping available (Housekeeping: daily for an additional fee or once per week for no charge). A key code for entry is sent to you upon securing your booking by payment through VRBO.

-We provide a continental breakfast upon requests with 24 hr. prior notice.

- The refundable damage deposit is refunded by VRBO 5-7 days after check out.

-We live upstairs on the main floor of the home. Middle age, married 29 yrs. w/a busy work schedule. 3 grown, out of the house, adult children- 2 married (23, 25 & 29). Our combined professional background is State Patrol, Military, Marketing & Geophysical company.

What makes this house unique

Avebury is quaint, quiet, and CLEAN as Christine is a stickler about such things. Using only a professional cleaning service, providing luxury everything from from furnishings to linens and little gadgets such as the Kuerig coffee/tea maker, iHome USB cell charger/radio alarm clock and Brookstone foot & leg massager, take away slippers and deluxe terry bathrobes for your stay. All robes, linens, duvet covers, blankets, towels and bath rugs are laundered for each new guest.

Avebury is situated in a quiet neighborhood with the security of the owners above, a decor that offers tiny touches & memories compiled of small and large decorative pieces and photos. Many of which were accumulated by Ervin and Christine in England over the last 15 years of travel. It's the perfect spot for relaxation, romance, memory making and enjoying the Pacific Northwest year round.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

Even better than the pictures. Charming, private and quiet. The rental was spotlessly clean. We had everything we needed plus nice extras. So nice to have supplies available for a delicious breakfast....especially the fresh eggs! We we would definitely stay here again on future trips to Tacoma.

Visiting our son @ University of Puget Sound

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place to stay to when we visited our son before the start of school. Convenient location to the school. Avebury is clean and well appointed. Ervin and Christine provide all of the amenities you'll need for comfortable stay. The parking is perfect for coming and going without bothering anybody. As a golf fan we visited near by Chambers Bay & Fircrest golf courses. We're looking forward to staying at Avebury again.

Cozy, beautifully appointed property

  • 5 of 5

Ervin and Christine met us upon our arrival and it was a late night! This property has everything you could ever need or want for a comfortable stay. The thought that was put in to making this apartment cozy and welcoming is unbelievable. It even has two electric fireplaces! We have never felt so pampered; from the fresh organic food and snacks to the bottle of wine and thank you note. It was also super clean with wonderful bedding and towels. Ervin and Christine are such gracious hosts. We are definitely looking forward to a return visit.

Inviting, Quaint, and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I enjoyed staying in this casement apartment with a London England theme. We were delighted with the extra amenities placed for our convenience. We both would love to stay here again and will recommend to family members that might go go to the Tacoma area to visit family and visit the area.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

This "cottage" like home was all that we could have hoped for and then some. Fridge was stocked with breakfast essentials including eggs , organic milk and cream, and blueberries. All sorts of cereals, muffins, coffees, tea, and bread were also included.

The cottage is located under the main house but was quiet even when the host's family of adult children and their kids came over for the 4th of July celebration. Parking, while uncovered, was perfect since it was unshared and just a few steps to the front door.

Located on a quiet street of well kept older homes. Minutes (4) away from the Boathouse 19 restaurant located on the Puget sound with a spectacular view of the Narrows bridge.

Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed by the decor of the cottage. A British theme that made us feel at home since we have children and grandchildren in London.

Overall, the cottage was very clean and nicely furnished. Kitchen and living area are nicely sized for relaxing. The location is in a nice residential neighborhood.

Bathroom towels were thick and plentiful. The robes provided added a nice touch. The stocked food items were a nice touch by the owners. Plus, they really made us feel welcome. Our thanks to Chris.

A place we will stay again if we return to the area. Definitely, recommend this place for couples desiring something more than a substitute hotel room. It's much more!

University Place received its name in the 1800s when the University of Puget Sound, a private liberal-arts college in North Tacoma, purchased land along the primary north-south route of Grandview Drive. The school sought to build a new campus there, but ended up selling the land back to the city for about $11,000. University Place remained an unincorporated part of Pierce County until the City of University Place was formed on August 31, 1995.[citation needed]

Today, University Place is largely suburban in character and functions as a mixed business and residential area with waterfront on the Puget Sound. The town is home to Curtis Senior High School and the Charles Wright Academy.

Chambers Bay golf course recently opened to favorable reviews. A Scottish links-style course, Chambers Bay hosted the 2010 U.S. Amateur and the 2015 U.S. Open.

Avebury on Sunset, our vacation home is fully furnished w/ W/D, luxury linens, continental breakfast, daily housekeeping available. Free WI-FI .

Why stay in a commercial hotel room when you can can literally have an entire luxury British themed home to yourself for nearly the same rate?
