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.
Interaction with Guests
For this listing, you are renting the ENTIRE HOME so I will not be staying with you.
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.
It's beautiful and quiet! Being here is like being in a resort - especially during the beautiful Seattle summers.
Highly recommend getting a rental car if you're not from the area. Public transportation is slow and infrequent.
Other Things to Note
Just a stone's throw to the famous Glass Museum and historic downtown Tacoma.

This remarkable place of dl of rest.
The house is very conveniently located. And the view from the window on the gulf was very beautiful at any time.
We will surely stop in this house still.
Our best recommendations.
Spent 4 excellent days at Crystal´s place. Exactly as advertised. In spite of being in Tacoma rather than Seattle, the drive is short and easy. Very clean and welcoming, had our first evening enjoying a perfect barbecue on the balcony enjoying the view and the sunset just 10 min after arrival.
Nice neighbourhood, even my wife felt safe sleeping with the windows on 1´st floor open during the night.
Absolutely nothing negative, except the fact that the place was far too big for a small family like ours ;-))

We could not have been happier with our stay. The house was beautiful and clean! LJ was very helpful. Also the location was perfect for all of the places we wanted to visit. The area of Tacoma was also very nice. Perfect for a run or walk and was complete with views of the bay and mt rainier.
I can't express how much my family and I enjoyed ourselves. The pictures do not do it justice, the view or the house. The house is warm, inviting, clean, great location, neighborhood, easy to get to, grocery store and Walgreens 6 min away. There was 7 of us and there was more than enough room. We were there for the 4th of July and watched the fireworks right from the house, perfect! Crystal stopped by and what a delight she is, she was accessible, as was her daughter LJ. My husband(not a tech or electrical person) did something to the passcode lock and they had it straightened out in no time. It was a peaceful & relaxing vacation. If we return nxt yr I would defiantly rent her house again. I highly recommend Crystal's home. Thank you Crystal
We were a party of four and spent 3 nights in this wonderful home during our visit to Tacoma and Seattle. We rented the whole house and everything was perfect. The view was stunning and the rooms enormous and comfortable. We enjoyed every minute of our stay and can recommend it without hesitation. Best regards from Sweden.
We had a wonderful time and the home was just perfect for our venue. Our niece was graduating and the family was able to each have their own space, bedroom and bath, and then a lovely living area where we could all share the wonderful time together. The view was gorgeous and we took every opportunity to sit on the outdoor patio. It was a lovely neighborhood, easy to get around and close to stores. If you are visiting Tacoma, this is a wonderful place to stay.
Amazing Views, Amazing home, and Amazing host! We brought our family to Tacoma to attend our daughter's college graduation and this house was perfect. The rooms are all very, very spacious, even the bedrooms and bathrooms. Everything is very clean and the linens were fresh and the towels were fluffy! The outdoor deck space is awesome. We were lucky to have nice weather and used their new bbq for a lovely dinner on the deck. We spent mornings enjoying the view and bird watching in the new swing outside. The kitchen is quite large with ample counter space. There are nice windows that open in the nook which allow wonderful pacific air to flow into the house. Crystal is very sweet and available if we needed anything (which we didn't)! Karoke was a special bonus we weren't expecting and found out our family has some entertainers!! Recommended for couples or families with older children who love a view and plenty of room to stretch your wings. The set up is perfect for 3 couples or a family of 4 to 8. THANK YOU Crystal! We loved our stay.
