About this listing

A deeply relaxing private room in my delightful historic Tacoma home is ready to embrace you! This private bedroom offers a luxuriously comfortable bed and many treasures to explore...all are welcome!
Massage and spa services available upon request.

The space

Located in Historic Hilltop Tacoma, surrounded by the elegant Stadium District and world class Wright Park it's an easy walk to many compelling areas of interest in the Theatre, Business, and Museum Districts.

Enjoy a wide variety of nearby dining and shopping options. My home is a short walk to the local farmers market and a fine assortment of neighboring pubs and swanky cocktail lounges!

To the north approximately 30 miles, the city of Seattle is just an express bus ride away - the express service leaves every half hour and offers a speedy direct public transportation option - keeping in mind that while Tacoma is vibrant it's quite sleepy and the public transportation system reflects this - the last bus back to Tacoma leaves downtown Seattle just prior to midnight.

Seattle/Tacoma International Airport is approximately 20 miles to the Northwest - travel times vary but typically it's about a half hour drive.

Free unlimited parking directly out front, high speed internet, office supplies and work space available as well as a deeply relaxing meditation and yoga space and comfortable lounging areas!

Enjoy my in-home Massage studio, a quiet sanctuary for meditation and deep relaxation -explore the delightful array of essential oils!

With over twenty years experience as a Licensed Massage Practitioner please consider scheduling a deeply relaxing and restorative massage session during your stay!

60 min./$80.00
90 min/ $100.00

There are two shared bathrooms on the middle floor, never a wait and please make yourself right at home in the kitchen and common areas on the main floor.

There is a darling park with a playground directly next door and a larger city park with trails and a children's water park just three blocks away and a bunch of other offerings to explore nearby!

I've stayed in about 30 Air BnB's over the years and this was among the best experiences. Everything is exactly as advertised, but the entire place is really, really well decorated and that puts it a notch above a few of the other places I've stayed in the exact same area. Nice back porch and garden. Super nice cats too. I swear one of them literally pointed out a bathroom I failed to notice.

Quiet, charming, home filled with art. Super comfortable room and bed. Short walk to lots of cool restaurants and pubs. This was the perfect way to spend a night in Tacoma

Cheri was warm and welcoming from the moment we walked through the front door. She did everything to make us comfortable, but still gave us space. Highly recommend this beautiful location! I was under the impression that we would be her only guests, however, there were two other rooms (equally as beautiful as the one in the photos!) booked by other travelers. This didn't take away from the overall experience at all. Also the bed was the most comfortable ever!

I really felt at home here. The guests are friendly, there are many spaces to find some privacy, and sitting on the back patio was a pleasure.

What I noticed most about my stay was how quiet the rooms are. There hasn't been any racket. I also enjoyed the stay-at-home feel for this place.

Cheri's home is a retreat. Once you step through the doors you are called into an embrace of ambiance not found most places. Try to find some time to just be there during your visit to Tacoma. An Air BNB gem.

I greatly enjoy sharing my home and offering deeply relaxing in-home massage and spa experiences!

A lover of nature and a curious explorer I'm currently curating a photographic and mixed media gallery of local places of interest!

A special gift left by a guest describes me best...


You are...

Everything warm...heavy quilts, red wine, naps, fires, strong coffee in heavy mugs

Everything soft...pillows, flow curtains, cats, skin

Everything strong...hands, intentions, feelings, desires, words, colors

Everything, flowers, candles, damp earth
