About This Listing
We're on the outskirts of downtown Tacoma, very close to the freeway, grocery stores, municipal facilities, and almost every restaurant you can imagine. We're walking distance from UW, the light rail, and only 2 miles away from Freight House Square.
This is a very large private room with two full sized beds and a twin bed option that can be set up for a large group. This room is upstairs with a secure door and is meant to accommodate either a short or extended stay for individual, couples, a group of travelers, or a family with children who are visiting the beauty of the Pacific Northwest.
If you are an adult with children or traveling as a group, this accommodation is perfect due to the fact that you'll have lots of privacy and space with a TV that boasts cable channels. You can also use the PS3 upon request and there are DVD movies available for your enjoyment.
If you are concerned about your valuables, seeing that this space is not yet secured with a lock, please speak to me about that so that your valuables can be stored in one of the family bedrooms and retrieved by the host at your request. locked away in the upstairs storage area just off of this space. However, we've never had an issue with privacy breaches and will do everything in our capabilities to keep it that way.
Please let me know if you have a need to leave your property and return for it later in the day after your check out time. You can do so without paying an additional charge/fee.
One final note: This is not a hostel. This is a clean family operated, very well hosted Bed and Breakfast. You will be checked in on at times and asked if you are comfortable and/or need anything.
We welcome you to our home and hope that you find it as enjoyable as we do. Happy Traveling!!!
You will have access to all common areas on the lower floor. Unless expressly given permission by me, no guests are allowed in either of the additional private bedrooms.
Interaction with Guests
We do check in on our guests. Please do not be alarmed by the attention that you receive upon arrival or at my soonest availability. Please let us know if you have any concerns regarding the accommodations or space.
We are a short distance up the hill from the University of Washing, Tacoma campus in a family friendly diverse neighborhood.
There is plenty of public transportation and this area is prime for getting around the city very easily by bus and light rail.
Other Things to Note
We do provide a key for guests to come and go freely. We also have a home security system to which you will receive a code to arm and disarm as you are coming and going.
Due to the fact that I found an illegal substance after a short stay, I feel the need to stress that this is a NON-SMOKING family home. Neither cigarettes or drug use is tolerated. It doesn't matter whether or not you have a green card.
If I even suspect that you're using drugs or unreasonably intoxicated, you will be forced, not asked...to leave the premises. Also, if I get the sense that you are an inexperienced traveler looking for a hostel type boarding, you will be required to find other accommodations and I will request that airbnb provide you with a refund. There are plenty of hostels around and this is not one of them. Thank you!
TaNeashia is a ray of sunshine! She is such a warm and positive person and makes you feel welcome right at the front door. The accommodations were perfect for my needs and I had no trouble getting a good night sleep! Thank you so much for hosting me, TaNeashia!
Staying here was an absolute delight. The host is by far one of the friendliest people I've ever met so having her as my first ever airbnb made me feel very comfortable with this app and encouraged me to further use it in future trips. The space was definitely perfect for my group of three to stay in, and finding the place was in no way hard. Also parking was easily accessible. Would definitely recommend this spot to anyone.
I had a great stay with TaNeashia. It was my first time using Airbnb so I was a little unfamiliar with the process but TaNeashia made it easy. The room was clean. Privacy wasn't a concern - the sheets worked fine - and I didn't have any problems getting a good nights sleep here for a few nights. There was plenty of parking on the street and the location was convenient. Its not fancy but if you're looking for a bed, some wifi and some interesting conversation this place should work great!
TaNeashia is a warm, passionate and whole-hearted woman. She made me feel comfortable, relaxed and at ease from the moment i walked in the door. My stay was nothing short of fantastic, I could not ask for a better host. Thanks TaNeashia.
I had a good stay at TaNeashia's. I was in late and left early, so I never met her in person but her accommodations were as expected and she was kind enough to fix me some coffee in the morning before I left.

About the Host, TaNeashia
Hello there! First of all, thank you for taking a look at the offered accommodations! I'm originally from San Diego and have been living in Tacoma since 2007. I LOVE Tacoma, weather and all. I'm an Executive Assistant/Project Management Point Person for a small non-profit and am extremely happy with what I do. I'm big on family and friends as well as community and this is why I decided to start hosting on Airbnb. I spend my leisure time primarily traveling with friends or out and about in the community with a friend. I'm a HUGE foodie! Lol I can point out alot of not so well known places in the Tacoma area where you can indulge in awesome food and drinks for reasonably moderate or very low prices. I'm aware of a variety of happy hour and entertainment spots in the city that are within a 3 mile radius from my house. Nice, right!?!?! As both an Airbnb guest and host, I think the primary words to describe me would be clean, considerate, and generous. I like to travel in a way that is somewhat planned and then wing the rest of the trip, doing whatever there is on impulse or as the opportunity arises. I do happen to have a few life mottos and one of them is: "Life is what you make of it."
One final note to potential guests and hosts. I am very no nonesense in my parenting style and spend quite a bit of time with my kids enjoying life, so it balances out. Lol My teen boys are extremely respectful, polite, kinda sheltered, and well taken care of. They don't know life any other way and the one restriction I do have in integrating others into our lifestyle is that my parenting style is given the utmost respect.
