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.
Super location for UPS visitors, comfortable bed. 2 cats: one shy, one friendly.
Jessy was very nice and tried her best to provide the comfortable space for us.
Great communication from Jessie before we arrived in Tacoma. Clear instructions, and flexible on when we arrived. Unfortunately, we only saw each other for a couple of minutes when we got back from dinner, but enjoyed the cupcakes that she was baking!
The space is private and feels like you have the whole place to yourself.
Lovely, warm home with comfortable, quiet sleeping quarters and private bathroom. Very cool hosts, great location for visiting University of Puget Sound - would definitely stay again!
Jessy and her husband were super nice and accommodating for my last-minute trip to Tacoma. Their place was just as described and Jessy was very easy to communicate with. She and her cats were lovely and welcoming, and she gave me great restaurant tips for the area. I definitely recommend Jessy and her home!
Jessy and John made me feel welcome in their home. I did not stay, however, due to cleanliness issues. I do understand the airbnb policies and provide this from the Hosting Standards:
Cleanliness: To make your listing shine, start with these steps before each guest's arrival: ....
Being so late, I quickly made arrangements elsewhere, and went straightaway. Jessy graciously refunded my fee upon request.
Jessy's place was very nice. I only stayed one night, was out late and left early the next morning, so I didn't have much time to take advantage of whole house. As other reviewers have said, it is conveniently located near the University and very near some great restaurants. Jessy gave me a great recommendation (Asado) which my son and I enjoyed very much! Also, Willow the cat will be happy to greet you day or night!
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.
