Interaction with Guests

Many old homes built by timber barons more than 100 years ago. Victorian, craftsman, etc. the neighborhood is great for walking and viewing the homes and the Puget Sound, Cascade and Olympic Mountains. Nearby church rings its bells hourly.
Bus stops on nearby North I street.
I hope that you will let me know of any problems, concerns or questions that you have about the condo and your stay in Tacoma.
Diana was a very welcoming host. Her place was cozy and quiet. Exactly what I was looking. Great view from the apartment. I couldn't of asked for something better.
Diana was a perfect host. Her place was immaculate, bedding comfortable, and view is out of this world. 3rd time we've stayed with Diana and it won't be our last. A perfect 10 out of 10

Diana was so communicative and accommodating since well before our trip started. Then when we arrived, the condo was so beautiful and clean and comfy! Great location to walk around and look at cute houses, take a longer stroll or a bus to the Proctor Farmers' Market or the shops and restaurants on 6th St., or just hang out and relax at the condo. Breakfast, milk, tea, coffee, and other goodies were ready and waiting when we arrived, plus fireplace all queued up and ready to go. Everything was delightful and Diana was an excellent host. Thank you!!!
This review is easy to write. Ditto on all the rave reviews before me. Without ever meeting Diana, her communication was so welcoming, friendly, and useful. The apartment was immaculate, well stocked, with nothing missing. You can't beat the view for watching the constant changes in the sky. And it was nice and quiet in this location. I would definitely stay there again, and again.
Thank you once again Diana for providing the perfect place to stay in Tacoma!
See you next time!
Diana was a great communicator from request to book - to her preparation for our arrival, complete with juice, eggs, fresh fruit and more awaiting us there. The apartment was everything and more - beautiful view with windows the whole way across the front of the living and dining areas, extremely comfortable bed, extra linens, etc. Most of all, it felt like visiting family or friend because....extremely clean, kitchen stocked as though it is the actual home of someone, pleasingly decorated and comfortable, again, as though it is someone's private home. And. Diana has placed her own personal art in the space, along with a small library of books ranging in topic - making the stay almost like home for us, yet with a new twist - new art and books. The neighborhood in the older section of Tacoma was beautiful to walk with interesting architecture and mature landscaping of variety, developed over years of loving care by its residents. This place is a treasure in which Diana obviously takes pride and works hard to nurture. We're very grateful for people like her. Thank you Diana!
