    November 2012
  • This was the perfect location for a stay before attending a meeting I had at the convention center, a five minute drive. The room was spacious, cozy and relaxing and the house is beautiful. Very big room and all the amenities. A lovely place.

    November 2012
  • Cheri's home is lovely and she was a welcoming and helpful host. I would definitely recommend staying with her in Tacoma.

    October 2012
  • We enjoyed our stay with Cheri. Our daughter was visiting University of Puget Sound which is about five minutes away. The house is very quiet as is the block. You can't tell you are in the middle of the city. The room is the entire third floor and is huge. We had plenty of room to relax and spread out. Parking on the street was never a problem. Cheri is a wonderful host.

    October 2012
  • A charming home and a warm welcome. Thank you Cheri for making us feel comfortable.

    September 2012
  • This was a lovely place to stay! Very pleasant neighborhood with parks and restaurants nearby in easy walking distance. We were welcomed on arrival with a homemade fruit crisp; just the thing after a long afternoon in the car. Cheri's house is very clean and colorful. We arrived in the middle of the rare heat wave and enjoyed the hammock set up out front and the fans in our room. We will come back on future visits to Tacoma tp visit our son at college.
