The space

Location! Location! Location! You will love this charming vintage Cottage located in historic Old Town Tacoma.

The fine print...
We offer a full-size bed in an elevated loft -
NOTE: The Cottage is VERY SMALL, the photos here make it appear larger than it really is.

Now for the good stuff...
The Living Room harbors a sofa, cozy fireplace, 40" HD plasma TV, DVD player and free Wi-Fi Internet. Also Netflix is now available via our cable provider, Comcast X1 Platform.

The Kitchen is stocked with housewares including a drip coffee maker and features new S/S appliances, and granite-tile countertop.

Bath boasts of newly constructed tile shower, and custom vanity. Shampoo, conditioner, body wash and hair dryer also provided.

Entire space recently renovated with a spunky nautical flair and freshly painted using a mix of classic and trendy modern colors.

Perfect for one person or couple. We currently require a 3 night minimum stay - up to 30 nights. Please view our CALENDAR for nightly rates as they do vary per season.

The Cottage is fully equipped with every day necessities, housewares including pots and pans, coffee maker, iron with ironing board.

Designated driveway parking for one car. No Pets. 100% Non-smoking residence.

For a larger space please also check out our new listing, The View at Commencement.

Guest access

The entire space is available for use, with the exception of the back balcony: the main house is leased to a family and the balcony overlooks their yard, so we ask that our Guests respect their privacy by not loitering/congregating there. You may open the door for a cross breeze.

There is a small yard in the front of the Cottage, and during the summer months is equipped with two comfy lawn chairs a small side table, for our Guests to enjoy.

Interaction with guests

The Cottage is a private dwelling located in the alley behind the primary house on the property. The main house is leased to another family and there is little-to-no interaction between tenants.

We may spend time on the property doing small chores/maintenance and yard work.

We live about a mile-and-a-half away and are available should any problems arise during occupancy.

Other things to note

Please DO NOT run both appliances at the same time; this will result in blowing the fuse(s).
Remember to TURN OFF the HEATER(s) on your departure.

Please keep Streaming (You Tube, Netflix, etc.) to a minimum – our carrier will charge an additional monthly fee if it exceeds the original plan…

Please DO NOT strip linens from bed(s) as it is easier for us to see and treat stains. To aid in mold prevention, leave used towels hanging on hooks so they may dry; often we don’t get in to clean right away.

Please wash your dishes and silverware before your departure; this includes pots/pans and skillets. There is a dish drainer and drying mat in the base cabinet to the left of the sink.

*Your assistance in keeping the Cottage clean reduces the cost of maintenance and utilities so we may continue to offer the Cottage at this affordable rate.

Upon Check-out please RETURN KEY TO LOCKBOX.
Garbage is collected every Friday, usually between 8:00 am - 11:00, so we set out bins on either side of the driveway for collection. There is typically enough room to enter/exit for small and standard size vehicles.

We also have landscaping service that shows once a week in the Spring/Summer seasons; they generally show on Wednesday or Thursday around 11:00am.

Excellent space in a great neighborhood for walking around and a few nice restaurants. Pay attention to the comments on the loft. As long as that is ok you should like this rental.

This cottage is in a great location! The space was clean and well kept. The loft sleep area could get warm on hot summer night but the hosts did set up fans to help reduce the heat. Overall this was a great stay!

I loved everything about the house. It was great, especially the area it is in. It is right next to the waters with great restaurants so it is a very convenient place to stay.
