We're happy to prepare breakfast for our weekend guests, but for the most part we'll give you a key and let you enjoy your time here in Tacoma.
It's probably the liveliest residential neighborhood in Tacoma. There are great restaurants like Marrow, Asada, Sushi Tama, Southern Exposure and Shakabrah within easy walking distance and bars like Half Pint, Dirty Oscar's Annex and Masa just as close. The house is nice and quiet and the neighborhood is beautiful, but it's also easy to go out and have a good time without having to worry about driving.
There is a bus stop right in front of our house to take you to Point Defiance and one right across the street to take you downtown.
Come, stay! You'll have a good time.

Interaction with Guests
We have as little or as much in interaction as the guests would like. At baseline we are very social people who love to talk and you are always welcome to join us for dinner. That being said, we know to respect people's alone time as well.
Our house is right next to a bus stop, making it convenient to go all over Tacoma.
Don't set the place on fire, please.
Stayed here for a week while visiting my son at UPS. Location is great--close to the campus, within walking distance of stores, cafes, and restaurants, yet still quiet. Jessy, her husband, and the two cats were welcoming, and interesting to talk with. The bedroom was comfortable, good closet space, and the bathroom was clean. I used the kitchen for meals, even cooked dinner one night for my son and his friend. I sometimes sat at the dining room table with my computer, and I used their wi-fi printer. This was my first experience with an Airbnb stay, and it worked out really well. Highly recommend Jessy's house, especially if you want to be near UPS campus.
Fun tip: if you leave the bedroom door ajar, the friendly cat will jump up on the bed to greet you after your alarm goes off and demand attention--no need for a snooze button here.
Jessy and her husband both warmly greeted us when we arrived and even helped me get my suitcase into the house. They reviewed all the amenities and gave us some good ideas about local restaurants in the event we didn't prefer to use their nicely stocked kitchen. I felt at home immediately. The listing is accurate as described on the website. This quaint Tacoma home has been updated nicely and was very clean. We selected it because it's two blocks from the University of Puget Sound (family weekend). It was perfectly located for access to university events. It also offered off-street parking which is a plus in Tacoma. The neighborhood is safe and conveniently located to shopping, restaurants and fun venues in town. I would highly recommend it to AirBnB travelers.
Nice place and nice couple. It took us a day to figure out that we had the run of the whole first floor! Central location with minutes access to our daughter, a student at the University of Puget Sound. Also easy access to downtown, Proctor neighborhood, Point Defiance and Vashon Island Ferry. If you love cats, Willow is for you... you'll have the earn Buffy's attention. Willow likes to make a front door escape but is easy to bring back in. Really good coffee at Metronome Coffee a half block away. If you forgot anything, Bartell's Drug Store is across the street. Jessy and her husband were very welcoming and gave us great suggestions for eating out.
