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).
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. =)

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.
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.
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.
