About this listing

3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 4000 sq ft home with amazing views of Commencement Bay. Perfect for vacations and relaxing.

Check below if you just want to rent a bedroom (or two).

The space

Beautiful custom-built home overlooking Commencement Bay. Close access to Federal Way as well as speedy to downtown Tacoma and the South End. Plenty of Parking.

Perfect for large families, multiple families, or just renting a room if in the area (please view our other listings). Also great for multiple couples traveling together or families with adult children given the layout of the home.

This home is about 45 minutes from downtown Seattle or Bellevue. If you're looking to do a day trip or two to Seattle, plus explore other tourist attractions in the area, this home is perfectly situated. However, if you want to spend all your time in Seattle, then I would suggest you find a vacation home closer to Seattle proper. =)

NEARBY ATTRACTIONS
- Aquatic Center (for our competitive swimming guests) - 4 miles and 10 minute drive
- University of Puget Sound (UPS) - 12.5 miles and 20 minute drive
- Museum of Glass - 9.5 miles and 16 minute drive

AMENITIES
Includes high end bed linens and Ralph Lauren towels, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, Q-tips and cotton balls.

MASTER BEDROOM
Has a Tempurpedic Queen sized bed plus a deck over looking the water. There's an ensuite bathroom with his and her sinks, soaking tub, separate shower and toilet.

UPSTAIRS BEDROOM SUITE
The upstairs bedroom is separated from the master bedroom by a landing, giving both bedrooms plenty of privacy. This bedroom features a regular queen-sized mattress - perfect for those who don't like memory foam. This room is GIANT and can easily accommodate a queen sized air mattress. This is a great room for those staying with little kids, as everyone can squish up into this room. There's a private full bathroom adjacent to this room.

DOWNSTAIRS BEDROOM
The downstairs bedroom is right off of the front door and has a firmer top of the line, memory foam mattress. This bedroom is perfect with those with mobility issues since it's on the main floor and just up 3 steps from the driveway. There's a bathroom adjacent to the bedroom, however this bathroom is also the shared bathroom on the main floor.

The house features a beautiful sunken living room as well as a family room, so there's plenty of space to spread out. There's a giant deck on the main floor for BBQs, laying in the sun, and watching the sunset.

Guest access

Guests will have access to the main floor and upstairs floor. There is a basement that will be locked and one storage closet that will be unavailable.

PLEASE NOTE: The basement may have friends or family staying in it. It is completely separate and locked from each side. Therefore, neither side can unilaterally try to enter the other.

Interaction with guests

For this listing, you are renting the ENTIRE HOME so I will not be staying with you. Again, please see the note above, there may be guests (non-Airbnb) staying in the completely separate basement MIL unit.

If I'm in town, I'll try to greet you personally for check-in. I'll always be available by phone or email, as will my daughter who helps me manage the property.

Other things to note

Just a stone's throw to the famous Glass Museum and historic downtown Tacoma.

Very nice house.

This lovely home is situated in a quiet, safe, residential neighborhood. Our host responded immediately to our requests and provided thorough instructions about check-in, amenities, etc. Other reviews have mentioned the tenant downstairs...they are quiet and respectful and didn't affect our visit at all. The decor, while dated, is comfortable and provides for several different sitting/lounging areas. Our family of five had plenty of space. We really enjoyed sitting at the kitchen table, looking out at the port. The view is amazing - with greenhouse-like windows and trees all the way to the water. We felt more secluded, not like we were in a suburb. Note to families with children: there is white carpet and there are several breakables to avoid. Crystal and her daughter were fantastic! An easy rental, and one we would come back to for certain.

If you are looking for great views, and don't want to be in the city, this is a great place. The kitchen is fully equipped, so if you are interested in doing your own cooking, it is easy. Home is formal, with a lot of white carpet, so I don't think it would be relaxing for those with kids.

Overall great stay. Awesome views. It was a little weird having all of the hosts clothes in the closet still in the master bedroom and the pictures throughout the entire home.
