Great Residential Area, close to Narrows Bridge, Highway 16, Gig Harbor, Fircrest and 20 from JBML and close to the US Open at Chambers Creek in 2015 located in University Place.
Within 2 miles to major shopping and dining areas, from 6th Ave to downtown Tacoma, a great place!
Rooms are currently priced low value because still involved in restoration of home. I can promise you clean, and inviting rooms with private locks. And a clean, inviting environment for now!
Common areas to share are kitchen, living room/sitting area, BBQ area with deck/porch seating. Outside areas for smoking only. Driveway and street parking are available!
I don't interact too much with guests, once I have greeted you and shown you the ropes. So you can expect quiet time if you need it. I work, volunteer so am pretty busy. I am always available by phone, should you have a need or concern. I live on the premises also.
From I-5 heading west on Highway 16, take exit #4 Jackson Ave .Turn right and continue on the light at intersection. My house in on a corner lot,with a huge hemlock tree at the very corner of my property behind a wood fence.
Entrance to The Secret Garden : Make a very sharp left from North Narrows Drive and turn onto Harmon Street. The first driveway on your right is where you park, or on the side of the street. The entrance is located here on this level from the driveway .Additional parking on the street.For those that are directionally challenged like I am, please print out the map and directions! :)
Taxis and buses are the main mode of public transportation.
Love my home, I am in the process of restoring it after years of neglect. So not in prime condition, but will be soon I hope. So please be patient, Progress is happening. :)

I enjoyed staying at Patty's home - and plan to stay there again on my next trip. Patty is a very nice - respects your privacy - and yet is friendly and outgoing if you choose to talk with her. The room I stayed in was very nicely furnished, clean, and had it's own bathroom and big screen TV. The bed was very comfortable, with many pillows of different firmness (nice selection). The kitchen and refrigerator were clean. There was a Kuerig coffee maker and a selection of breakfast foods.
Where it is true you will sleep in a bed and be provided a breakfast at the Secret Garden, there is so much more to the experience of staying there. When I arrived very late on Friday night, the Innkeeper (Patty) was waiting to let me in. I was greeted with a warm smile and made to feel like I was coming home to visit family. I was then shown to my room where there was a homemade cookie and a steaming hot cup of Chamomile tea.
I stayed in the room with a queen bed and private bath. The room was quiet, comfortable, and warm. The bed was very comfortable and made it easy for me to rest.
I was advised I had run of the living room and kitchen and to make myself at home. I was made to feel welcome and provided a place to relax. I was provided a wonderful breakfast of scrambled eggs, bacon, turnovers, OJ, milk and fresh fruit (bananas, grapes, strawberries, grapefruit): Everything was delicious!
I look forward to returning and staying a little longer next time.
Could not have asked for a better place to stay. The Secret Garden B&B exceeded my expectations and Patty was the perfect hostess. This is the only place I will stay when I visit Tacoma in the future. Thanks Patty!
wonderful stay. It was like staying at Aunt's Patty's place during my vacation (instead of a cold hotel). Very graceful host with attention to detail and easy to approach. Thanks for making my vacation to Seattle a success!
Hi, I'm Laura. My family live in the area, but I like to have somewhere private to stay when visiting. I feel very fortunate to have found Patty here on Airbnb. Patty is a wonderful host! I immediately felt at home. Her home is beautifully decorated, yet maintains a comfortable, easy living feel. Patty was very accommodating to my schedule as well. The bed was very comfy and the small private bathroom very convenient. She had coffee, tea, cookies, yogurt and fruit available as well. Very enjoyable experience, Thanks Patty!
This was my second stay with Patty in December. Even better than the first time! I will absolutely stay with Patty again next time I visit the Tacoma area.
Patty has a very comfortable and cozy place and I was happy to sleep on such a comfortable bed for a few days.
Thank you Patty, you have been very generous and kind!
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
