Interaction with Guests
Once I have greeted you and shown you the ropes, I pretty much let you take your lead. 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.
Located within walking distance of The Narrows Bridge, with beautiful views, (unfortunately I'm located in the "valley"), but can be seen with just a short walk down the road. 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 turn onto Harmon Street and North Narrows Drive. 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.
For those that are directionally challenged like I am, please print out the map and directions! :)
Bus transportation from the bus stop across the street on the corner from the house. Access to Highway 16 to I-5, bus, taxi,rental cars.

I do not allow pets, smoking is outside only! Common courtesy is expected in behavior.
We didn't see Patty and Jerry much since we were out galavanting around early in the morning and we usually get back late. It was definitely a well kept up place and whenever we did interact with the hosts, they were really nice and accomodating. We did however, move different rooms three times due to some last minute changes but it was of little inconvenience to us since we were barely there and Patty would move our stuff for us while we were gone. Overall, this was our first airbnb experience and it was a great one.
We had a wonderful time at Patty's. Her place is gorgeous: beautifully decorated and she has made every possible effort to make her guests comfortable. The bed was very comfortable. We did not spend a lot of time there because we were there to visit family, but would love to go back. She has a lovely garden and a balcony to go out on. She made us an incredible breakfast of berries wrapped in Swedish pancakes with creme fraiche as well as blueberry lemon scones. It was better than we would have expected from a five-star hotel. Highly recommend her place. Only suggestion for guests is to make sure you have good directions if you are coming late at night in the dark, as we had some difficulties finding it at 2:00 in the morning.
Patty's house was great . We had all the first floor to ourselves and other guests from idaho . We had a couple of great microbrews and Patty had so many options on where to relax and enjoy them ( sunny back yard or shafded balconies ...it was the heatwave . Room was cozy and had those little attentions , pitcher of ice cold water on arrival in the 90 degree heat . Breakfast was delicious .
All in all a great experience .Thanks for everything !!!!!
Patty was our first experience of renting a room and I have to say it was WONDERFUL. She and her husband stay downstairs so it seems like you have the whole house to yourself. She makes you breakfast every morning! We loved her fairy gardens.
Patty and Jerry are excellent hosts. They are so welcoming and kind. The bnb is beautiful and cozy. Patty made the best breakfast every morning!
Patty is an excellent host. She is located in a very quiet area of Tacoma, but still close to the restaurants and things to do. Breakfast was wonderful. We will definitely be staying with Patty again when we need a place to crash in Tacoma.
Patty was a wonderful host and very accommodating to my needs. She went out of her way to make me feel at home. I would definitely return!
