This is my second stay and once again, c
Carola is welcoming and checks in to confirm all is well. This is a wholly pleasant place to stay while on business. Just the right balance of peaceful environment and all I need to do work. Will stay again!
We had a delightful stay from February 13 through 17. When we arrived, we were welcomed with a Valentine's Day basket of wine, cider and chocolates - how nice! Mike stopped by shorty thereafter to welcome us in person and to show us around the apartment, and Mike and Carola were available to answer questions. The apartment itself was as advertised - clean, well-maintained and tastefully decorated. The kitchen was fully equipped with pots and pans, utensils and equipment (e.g. coffee maker and electric kettle) and also had breakfast items like ground coffee, yogurt and fresh fruit, and the bathroom had all the necessary toiletries. The location is a quiet residential area close to the water, and the views are spectacular. One needs a car - there is a parking spot - but there is a small shopping center a few minutes away with a supermarket and other businesses as well as a nice diner with an adjoining bar. Overall a very nice experience.
Wonderful Stay. The large open floor plan was pleasant and comfortable. Kitchen was stocked with many Goodies and the Bathroom has a large shower. Excellent heat.
Carole was very friendly and helpful and even baked us fresh muffins one day!
The view in this neighborhood is outstanding. Whether you go for a walk or just drive around the block you have million dollar views!
This location is great! The host was well prepared with basics for coffee and cereal, a basket of fresh fruit, bagels and cream cheese and juice when I arrived. It was a large, clean area with everything I needed for my stay. I had a wonderful time and would recommend this location for anyone wanting to stay near Tacoma.
Wow. I arrived at Carola's home after having spent nights in 3 other locations over only 5 days. What a welcome relief to arrive at this haven for the final 5 nights. Fresh flowers and fruit, bagels and yogurt....and a spacious, spotless, and comfortable space were mine within view of Puget Sound.
Carola did an excellent job at making us feel at home. This was a great place to stay with beautiful views over looking the bay. It is close enough to be just a short drive to all the sight seeing destinations in the Seattle area but far enough to get away from the craziness of the city. Carola provided a few snacks and breakfast items. We would have loved to be able to use the pool; however; it was a little too cold during our stay. Definitely recommend this place to stay for someone looking for a nice, quite place to stay that provides plenty of opportunity to enjoy the area.
The apartment was exactly as advertised and served our two weeks stay nicely. Carola asked about our food preferences and supplied breakfast food that was appreciated. Any questions we had were quickly answered. The washer/dryer made life much easier. We would definitely return.
This was my second stay with Carola.
My first time was wonderful-comfortable with eveything I could possibly need.
This visit was incredibly personal and her apartment provided just the place I desired for my time visiting my son and his family.
Carola's thoughtfulness exceeds expectations. Beside being clean and including lots of personal touches, I found delicious, nutritious food in the fridge and coffee in the cupboard!
Carola remembered my 2 grandsons and there were 2 pumpkins ready to carve when they visited.
She and Michael are always available if help is needed and I am looking forward to my next stay in their beautiful, little apartment.
Carola and Mike were absolutely wonderful. They made my first time using airbnb a breeze and if I need a place to stay next time in Tacoma, I definitely know who to book.
From the start, the host (carola) made me feel very welcome. Weeks in advance i had made a reservation, and already she was in contact with me about the details and answered every question i had. The place is a cozy, well lit studio with a nice couch, high quality kitchen and a clean bed.
My only complaint is that the pool had specks of dirt and leaves floating. It appeared dirty. This is just a minor blip on a very welcoming stay for me. The fully stocked fridge, the spacious parking on the driveway, and the great communication with host makes me gives this pad a 5 (out of five) star rating
I'm glad you enjoyed your stay! Sorry about the pool - it is hard to keep up with all the leaves being blown around in the fall. Carola
I worked with Carola during a contract in Federal Way. In the final weeks of the contract, I needed a short term place to stay with my two young boys. Carola was a gracious host, making sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. The pool was a great bonus and the boys loved swimming in the shallow end. An added bonus was the view. Returning to our little apartment every evening, we got to enjoy breathtaking views of sunsets on the water. There are plenty of parks and beach access only minutes away and drop-in child care as well! We really enjoyed our stay. Thanks, Carola!
I have known Carola for several years, as a friend and work associate. I have even stayed as a guest in her home for 6 months. Carola is a gracious host and friend, always ready with a helping hand. People who meet her for the first time relax, as they realize she is ready to listen and care about their concerns. In her home and rental, her photography brightens the walls, and her gardening enhances the outdoor surrounding views. It is truly a gift to know Carola.... and I am honored to be her friend.
