Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Cheri is a beautiful soul with a heart of gold. Her place is full of character. She is warm and friendly, loves Tacoma as I do. I am looking forward to my next opportunity to visit and look forward to staying with Cheri again.

  • Staying at Cheri's is always a pleasure. The room was super comfy and spacious, and had everything we needed. We were in and out at odd times, so we didn't get to spend much time socializing with the other guests at the house, but they seemed nice and Joyce the kitty always made sure that we were thoroughly welcomed and purred-over when we got in at weird hours of the morning. I wish we could have stayed longer, it was such a delight!

  • After a long journey across the country there was no where imaginable more comfy and cozy then at cheri's. Despite arriving late in the evening she allowed us into her home and full access to all amenities. The house was very special with interesting surprises hidden in each room. We could not have asked for a more welcoming and relaxing home for our first airbnb stay. Although we only briefly met cheri prior to leaving it was as if visiting with an old friend.
    Thank you, cheri, for being (email hidden)!

    June 2014
  • The stay here was fantastic. Cheri and I only saw each other once, right as we were preparing to leave, but the set up of everything was designed perfectly to make us feel welcomed and at home. I highly recommend this room to anyone staying in Tacoma.

    June 2014
  • The place is very nice and clean. The attic room has tons of space to spread out. Definately recommend.

    June 2014
  • Cheri's space was wonderful! We stayed only one night, but we would have loved to stay longer. Cheri was clear in her directions/instructions, and although we were unable to meet her, felt comfortable enough to feel at home.

    May 2014
  • Cheri was (email hidden)!!!! Her home is absolutely breathtaking and from the second we walked in the door she made me and my 3 friends feel right at home. If I am ever back in Tacoma I would stay with Cheri again hands down!

    Response from Cheri:

    This instant book reservation was cancelled immediately upon receiving the
    notification to avoid a double booking. I received an alteration request at
    the same moment in time by a guest that booked the room months ago but as
    the travel time grew closer they realized they will be arriving close to
    midnight the night before the reservation was actually to begin and they
    requested the additional night to accommodate their late night arrival
