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!

The neighborhood

My home is located in a sweet enclave of thoughtfully preserved historic homes just above the theatre district in the downtown corridor.
World class performance art and cultural events happen just a few blocks away!

Many interesting and compelling services including a variety of dining options are within a moments walk. Within my block are several establishments offering artisan crafted cocktails and inspired menus!

A darling park with a community garden is right next door and a large urban park with a historic botanical conservatory is just around the corner!

Getting around

Located a few blocks down the hill is a transit center with access to Express bus service to downtown Seattle and beyond.

There is a light rail "Link" that is a short walk away offering access to the Museums and State University District.

Other things to note
