We live in the little town of University Place, just South of Tacoma. We are an easy drive to the Peninsula, Seattle and Olympia.
This room is furnished with a queen size bed. You will also have access to your own bathroom. Breakfast included if you want.
We are a small family with a large duplex (2200 sq ft.) We have a retro fireplace and a Boston Terrier named Brie. I am a jewelry artist and love to surround myself with art of all kinds. My home is electic, full of vintage furnishings, a well stocked kitchen and is surrounded in good vibes.
You will have a bedroom and access to your own bath, right outside the bedroom. The downstairs, and our room is off limits, but you may use the rest of the upstairs.
Interaction with Guests
We love to have people in our home. It's up to you how much you would like to interact. I do the home's cooking and cook with all NON GMO foods. You may join us for dinner, and if you would like, I can make breakfast for you. Coffee is done by a burr grinder and is usually Stumptown or Vivace beans.
Easy access to Tacoma, Lakewood, University Place and to the freeways.
A car is the best. You can use our driveway and we will direct you to the appropriate spot to park. For an additional fee, I can pick up/drop off to the airport.
No smoking in the house, but there is a deck outside you may use. We have a Boston Terrier, so we prefer no other animals at this time. We don't allow parties, or disorderly conduct.
I had the best hospitality shown to me when I visited Thea and her family, I was fed the cleanest and healthiest food, and they were the nicest family. Thea was so kind to pick me up and be my guest at my lecture, and was very gracious to take me back to catch my train on time the next day. For me that was priceless.
I had a clean bedroom with a great bathroom to my self and that was nice. I will definitely stay there again any time I am within that zip code. Happy family, Happy food, Happy place! Loved it!
Very nice family. Thea makes exceptional meals every night and I was always invited to join them for dinner. Room was clean and had private bathroom as advertised. No complaints!
Full time Mom, part time silversmith, quilter, canner and home cook. My husband make rocket ship parts and we have 1 teenage boy.
I strongly believe in eating clean, whole foods and even make my own chicken and beef stock! :D I love gnomes and have acquired quite the little collection. You will find them all over the house. I also have seem to start acquiring Matryoshka dolls (nesting dolls)
Traveling is something we enjoy doing, but don't often have the opportunity. We housed 4 foreign exchange students over the years and we have been fortunate in that we are still in contact with all 4 of them.
As a family, we love Dr. Who, Star Wars and Sci Fi Geeky things. (What do you expect from someone who make Rocket ships?)
More often that not, you will find us on some electronic device, spending time together.
