About this listing
This home is within walking distance of both MultiCare and Franciscan hospitals, UPS, Tacoma's theater district, and beautiful Wright Park. This is an eclectic neighborhood. Private bathroom, shared kitchen, WiFi.
Available Thur, F, Sat, Sun only. Also available February 12-19, 2017.
The uniqueness of the neighborhood; the easy access to Wright Park (plus our neighborhood park). Lots of restaurants are within walking distance. And one of our local bar tenders has been written about in The New Yorker.
Guests have access to the kitchen, living room, patio-and my fine kitties. I have basic cable only, but I have Roku and Netflix.
Interaction with guests
I'm busy, too, but I love to take time to talk to my guests, especially in the morning before we all go our separate ways.
I love the diversity of this neighborhood. The neighbors are wonderful.
Bus service is quite good. I'm a short walk to the Link which will take you to the Tacoma Dome and direct service to the airport and/or downtown Seattle.
Other things to note
I have two magnificent felines.
I'm a retired college professor (English, Humanities, creative writing). I read, garden, play Scrabble, do Pilates, walk. My favorite book? The Great Gatsby. My favorite movie? Casablanca. I love animals, and currently I volunteer with a group that is working to manage the free-roaming cat population through a "catch, neuter, and release" program. And I have my own two cats-Dexter (polydactyl) and Melange (tortise shell).
I love happy hours.
