Our happy little hideaway is a secret gem on a quiet street in the heart of So. Tacoma. It's the basement apartment to our upstairs Happy Little Garden House, also for rent on AirBnb. It's close to family-friendly activities like the Star Center and parks, public transport, shopping mall, International Dist., freeway, dog parks, bike paths (5 blocks), cafes (Starbuck's 2 min), nightlife (56th St 5 min.) My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, families and business travelers.

The space
Our hideaway is a funky 1950's retro inspired (yet very modern) little getaway. We renovated it recently so all amenities are brand spanking new. It's cozy and warm, with a custom kitchen designed by us, and plenty of sleeping space. It's a great place for a quiet getaway that's also near to all the city has to offer. We have a big backyard and small side patio with table, and adirondack chairs for the hideaway guests only. Our other fire pit and patio are for the upstairs guests. The outdoor space is generally a common space for all our guests and is a great place to hang out and play. We also have a garden in the front, and if veggies, fruits, and herbs are growing you are welcome to partake in the bounty. Be our guest! Please keep in mind that the hideaway is a basement apartment with low ceilings. There can be noise from the upstairs from time to time, so if you are a light sleeper do take note!

Guest access
We offer a coded lock box for guests to get access to our hideaway keys.

Other things to note
Our house is our home and our neighbors our good friends. Please, respect our space by keeping it clean and only inviting pre approved guests. Also, please respect our neighbors by keeping it quiet inside and outside past 10pm. We also offer an upstairs apartment at our rental which may be rented from time to time during our hideaway guests' stay, so don't be surprised if you have neighbors above. Also, if you are looking for any extra space for guests, consider booking both units.

In addition, our basement apartment has a quirky heating situation which means the main source of heat comes from the upper unit of the home. You can control the ventilation of the heat by adjusting the vents, and we also have individual heaters in each room. If you need additional heat beyond what is provided from the house, we can also provide you with a space heater.
