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.
Kitchen, living room, dining room, patio balcony, workout room (with treadmill). Ample safe side street parking for our guests :-)
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.
It was really great time to stay here for 2nights. Hosts are very kind and they can let us fell comfortable while staying.
The place was great, close to UPS and within walking distance to a few restaurants. Jessy was very accommodating and patient enough when my fellow guests and I were late arriving. She also recommended a few good restaurants and bars within the neighborhood.
The listing was very accurate. It was the perfect location for us while my son was visiting the University of Puget Sound. Jessy was always friendly, had good suggestions for places to go and made us some awesome scrambled eggs for breakfast!
We were very relaxed and happy at Jessy and Jonny's place. The neighborhood was very conveniently located near shops and restaurants, and Jessy and Jonny are very knowledgeable about things to do and places to go.
Stayed here while visiting UPS with my daughter. Jesse was especially accommodating, responding to our last-minute inquiry very quickly and providing great recommendations for local restaurants and shopping. The home is in a great location, with restaurants and coffee shops in easy walking distance. The bed was comfortable and the rooms matched the airbnb description. The WiFi worked great and the two friendly cats were an added bonus.
We found Jessy's place easily and were welcomed by her 2 very sociable kitties. We had everything we needed and we all enjoyed a good night's sleep. Our time at the house was limited, as our schedule was quite full, but we found it to be bright and airy, cozy and delightful. There were 4 of us and Jessy kindly provided an additional sleeping space for our use. This was a perfect place for our needs :-)
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.
About the Host, Jessy
I'm originally for Miami, but I recently moved to Tacoma from New Orleans, La with my husband where I am completing my residency and my husband is in graduate school. We are friendly and willing to give tips on things to do around Tacoma as well as the surrounding day travel that can be done around this wonderful washington area, from beautiful waterfalls to great breweries.
