This was my third time staying with Shana, in "The Pink House" and it only gets better each time.
Shana keeps her rooms clean, very tidy and comfortable. She keeps her beds neatly made with clean, fresh sheets and, a cozy comforter.
I highly recommend "The Pink House" for anyone visiting Tacoma!
We loved staying at Shana's place. She keeps things very clean and orderly, and she runs it like a real B and B. The rooms are very comfortable, and her house is beautiful. The location is great also, as it is easy walking to 6th ave, yet far enough away that her neighborhood is quiet and peaceful. Shana is an excellent host.
My experience at the Pink House was great, and Shana was an accommodating host. Also, she has the most adorable and cuddly cat ever! The location was central to great parts of Tacoma, which was really convenient. I slept like a baby in the Blue Room! I would definitely request to stay here again if I find myself back in Tacoma.
A tidy house, 2 blocks from lots of restaurants and walking distance to UPS. Shana seemed a little stressed but still made sure we had everything we needed, including kindly letting us leave our luggage in storage for the afternoon after checking out.
The house has plenty of character, and is extremely clean and tidy. Shana was helpful and friendly. The bedroom was lovely, and the mattress felt great.
I really enjoy the views from this room and the location is so great. My new favorite hang out nearby (just a short walk) is the 'Half Pint'.
Shana is an impeccable host and I look forward to seeing her when I come to visit.

About the Host, Shana
I'm new to the Tacoma area. I purchased the Pink House as a remodeling project with the idea of sharing the space with other. Airbnb has allowed me to travel, live light, and to meet interesting people, as well as to grow as an individual.
